1996 dodge caravan 2.4 liter battery light comes on what is the cause ?

Usually a failing alternator. Check voltage at the battery with engine running. Should be at least 14 volts. If less or you don't have a voltmeter, take alternator off and have it tested at the parts chain. Let me know if you need instructions for removing the alternator or have more questions.

How to change alternator for dodge caravan 1996

if you have a 3.3 engine then that job looks almost impossible ... same for the rear spark plugs .. i gave up and took it to a dealer ... i asked the mechanic how in the world he managed without taking the engine apart .. he said "i took the engine apart (with a big smirk)" ... he wouldnt tell me what but it looks like you have to take off the intake manafold ... maybe even the rear valve cover (to get at spark plugs) ... thats a wonderful engine .. nice machine, lasts forever .. but the human engineering is awful .. i noticed that the new caravans have corrected that .. they have lots of room to get at things .. also the smaller engines give you more room .. it cost me over $300 just to have the back 3 spark plugs changed .. another time an alternator was loose in the middle of nowhere ... a mechanic welded and bent several wrenches together to make a goldburg type tool to get at that hidden nut at the bottom of the alternator .. dodge could have made that much easier (possible) if they had made those "captive or welded" nuts .. as it is, the nuts are loose and impossible to control without "taking the engine apart" if you do manage to get them loose (without dissembling the engine), you cant remove them completely since you cant get anything to hold the hidden nut .. and you wont even be able to retighten without that bent and welded special tool .. i noticed that the front bearing on the alternator is what fails more often than other things .. so after the first 75,000 miles .. i put a drop of syn oil on that at every oil change .. that seems to extend the life considerably .. be careful to clean any oil that gets on the belt .. also check the spring loaded belt tensioner ... make sure it still moves on its pivot .. they often freeze at the pivot and that can cause damage to the alternator bearing ...

I have a 1996 dodge caravan and the trany blue so

The van has several issues... I may not cover all of them here:

1. The rpm tac wire is not seated properly at the tranny.
2. The "ground" is not making a good connection; maybe the ground strap was removed and not replaced. Purchase a "ground strap" ($12) at an auto parts store (AutoZone?) and connect it from the engine to a convenient location on the chassis .

That should clear the rpm and the ****.

Comments anyone??

It sounds like the alternator is not charging. First check the belt tension, sometime the tensioners go bad and the alternator isn't spinning. If that's OK then it's time to replace the alternator

Hoe to Replace an alternator on a 1996 Dodge Ram Van 2500 3.9L V6

Remove negative battery cable.
Remove the electrical plug and wireing. Mark them.
Loosen the alternator pivot bolt.
Remove the bolt that attaches the alternator to the adjustment arm.
Rotate the alternator to loosen the drive belt and disengage the belt from the pulley. Be careful that any spacers that are used in mounting are kept with their original bolts. This will make correct reinstallation much easier.
While supporting the alternator remove the pivot bolt.
Remove the alternator from the vehicle.
Do the reverse procedure to install new alternator.
