The check engine light comes on when there is a fault or failure of a component within one of the systems.It will need to be checked for a fault then a diagnostic procedure routine will need to be done to determine the cause of the fault.If that check engine light is flashing while driving STOP and have it towed to the nearest shop,preferably a Chrysler dealer as they have the highest trained techs to correctly diagnose issues on any Chrysler product.

SOURCE: 2005 Dodge caravan dashboard indicator lights and dials went haywire

2005 Caravan I had the same problem with my van gauges bounceing, headlights not comeing on when the switch was turned on.I took a day and downloaded a wireing diagram from dodge and studyed it.GROUND PROBLEM dodge have several ground conections to the body then there is one MAIN BODY GROUND.This is most likely your problem it is easy for any back yard mechanic to fix.This main body ground is located under your battery box.You will have to remove the battery and then the battery box becarful of the battery sensor that is mounted in the bottom of the box.Also there is a hose that you will have to disconnect but dont try to remove it from the box remove it from above the box.After you get the battery and box out you will see a threaded stud with a black wire conected to it this will be rusted because of no antioxide grease applyed.You will have to remove the nut and wire connector clean both and the stud with wire brush or sandpaper.Put antioxide grease or if nothing else some vaseline to keep it from coroading again.put back together and see if this dosent fix your problem.It has been six weeks for me now.good luck.dont forget that neg battery terminal is the first one to disconect and the last to reconect.

SOURCE: AC & Rear wiper switch button indicator lights blink

The procedure for re-setting the HVAC control panel on a 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan follows:
With ignition on but not running
1. turn knob to air vents
2. turn fan knob to ON
3. temperature setting on COLD (2X) {I have dual temp controls}
4. hold top(rear wiper) and bottom (rear wiper with wash) buttons pressing down together until all the buttons cycle through (this will require 1 to 2 minutes of continuous pressing)
I learned this from a very helpful local Dodge service adviser

SOURCE: When check engine indicator light came on in 1997

The P1698 code means that no digital data is being received by the powertrain controller (on the left inner fender) from the transmission control module, located on the right inner fender. The manual says to check the ccd bus wires between the module and the rest of the system using the Chrysler diagnostic readout box. But if you don't have one then I think you can do the same thing by measuring for continuity (near 0 resistance) between pin 4 of its plug and pin 11 of the data link plug under the dash .
Then check the resistance between pin 43 if its plug and pin 3 of the data link connector. Finally check continuity from pin 7 of the data connector and pin 65 of the powertrain connector (pink wire). If the continuity between the transmission and data link connector wires checks as well as from the connector to the PCM proves to be ok, then according to the manual the trans controller should be replaced. But you should also verify that there is either a + or - bias voltage of 2.5 volts on each of those wires as a loss of bias voltage will also cause this code.

Malfucnction Indiator lamp


The malfunction indicator lamp(MIL) indicates a faulty sensor/s in the ECM system management. If it is flashing it will be a code as to the fault and the faults can be read by a scanner to determine the nature of the fault. Once the fault has been fixed then a scanner can be used to reset the MIL

My malfunction indicator light came on but it went back off what does this mean 2007 chrysler300


The MIL is an indicator of excessive emmissions,if the light went
out,it's ok. May have been a loose gas cap or even a wheel spinning
in snow,I'd let it go unless it comes on and stays on.

Malfunction indicator light


If it is the check engine light, you would need to get the computer scanned for trouble codes.
Once the problem is fixed and the codes are erased, the light should stay off.

When I open the door on my 2005 Caravan, without the key in the ignition, the chime goes on and the open door indicator is lit. Also noticed that the mileage indicator is lit. This just happened. Normally...


It is normal operation for the odometer to light up with the driver's door being opened. It is not normal for the chime to go off. The "Key-In Switch" in your steering column is malfunctioning. The body control computer "Thinks" the key is in the ignition when it is not. It usually requires a new key tumbler assembly to fix this.

Battery light indicator went on initially, and power to vehicle eventually died out; with engine sputtering.


If your battery light indicator went on it indicates that the battery is not charging because of either a dying battery or alternator or both!
With the red battery indicator on, the battery will eventually drain out (especially if the alternator is faulty) to the point where it will not provide the required power to the car electrical system ... thus causing it to 'sputter' and eventually die out - a sure sign it that you cannot restart the motor due to a weak of flat battery!
Hope it helps you understand the possible problem!
