Why do my door locks stop working when I try to install a stereo in my 2000 dodge caravan?


Hi Tony, I'm AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair

I look forward to helping you with your problem!

Tony, most likely you have hook your stereo into wiring that is interrupting the signal that comes from the computer to unlock the or lock the doors. The best way to see if this is your problem is to unhook the stereo and see if the problem goes away. If it does you'll need to hook the stereo to some other wiring. If you problem is still there you'll need further assistance. Click here for Help! Auto Repair

My 1998 dodge caravan won't stay running. starts up but shuts down instantantly or when i take my foot off the gas pedal,


ok i have a 1998 durango with the 5.2L 318 engine. had trouble with a bad cell in my battery. I went out bought an optima red top battery for it 800cca. put it in and had same trouble. No start without putting foot on gas. wouldn't stay running without holding foot on gas. CPU has to relearn it's programming once you unplug it for long periods of time. mine was without power for about 2-3 weeks till i got new battery. Start with this.. first check under air filter make sure a squirrel hasn't made a mess under your air filter and it's clogging the air intake. Then pull off the lid to your injector cover ( the screw down lid coming from the air box ( with air filter in it) to "carb") make sure all your cables move freely. put that all back together and close hood. Start truck with foot slightly on gas pedal to get started. keep it at about 1k to 1500 rpm for about 1-2 minutes. Rev motor to about 2500rpm and let it die out if it will. Get out lock doors with key fob if you have it. if not make sure to lock doors. ( trust me it worked for me) let sit for 5 minutes. come back out and unlock door and relock door 3 times with fob ( if you have it ) or key if you don't have a fob. Then unlock it with the key and enter vehicle. Start truck as before and keep it around 1k to 1500 rpm again for about 30 seconds rev it up and should keep running. Mine did. I think the iac was stuck from sitting and has now since loosened up.
Good luck hope ti works for you.

I just bought a 1998 caravan dodge and it appears when i used the key to unlock doors, it doesnt look like the unlocked switch is working ,when i tried to start the car the alarm set came on and shut down...


Sounds like the switch inside the drivers door is not working to disarm it. Lock and unlock the passeger side door with the key and do the same with the gate on the back of the van and be sure to use the key to do it. this should disarm the alarm but you will have to get the switch inside the door fixed.

LOST KEY AND REMOTE TO A 1996 DODGE CARAVAN, i WENT TO DODGE TO HAVE NEW KEY MADE AND WAS GOING TO GO BACK FOR NEW REMOTE, HOWEVER IN THE MEAN TIME i LOCKED VEHICLE AND NOW IT WON'T REPROGRAM BECAUSE IT IS...


If unlocking the Van via the door locks wont disarm the alarm it's because the alarm harness have become detached. The door panel will have to be removed and the harness manipilated manually to disarm the alarm. Or you can have a new remote programed

01 dodge grand caravan driver side door wont unlock, something to do with gas cas door. checked gasdoor still wont un lock....HELP!!!!!!!!!!! think it may be a relay or some type of elec problem...


Ok get in car. close all doors. Put key in ignition cycle key four times on & off. DO NOT START. Within 10 seconds of the final cycle, press the drivers door lock switch to the lock position. If you here a single chime you have reprogrammed the power door locks. This can be done of throught the EVIC system if the van has the system. If problem does not go away lock motor is bad
