Question about 2006 Dodge Caravan
How do i reset the compass
Hi Roger, I'm glad to help. Below is the procedure for resetting the compass on your vehicle.
COMPASS VARIATION ADJUSTMENT Compass variance, also known as magnetic declination, is the difference in angle between magnetic north and true geographic north. In some geographic locations, the difference between magnetic and geographic north is great enough to cause the compass to give false readings. If this problem occurs, the compass variance setting may need to be changed.
To set the compass variance:
1. Using the Variance Settings map, find your geographic location and note the zone number Figure 1.
Figure 1 - Variance Settings 2. Turn the ignition switch to the On position. If the compass/thermometer data is not currently being displayed, momentarily depress and release the C/T push button to reach the compass/thermometer display. 3. On Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) and Compass Mini-Trip Computer (CMTC) equipped vehicles depress the Reset push button and hold the button down until "VAR = XX" appears in the display. This takes about five seconds. On Compass Temperature Module (CT) equipped vehicles depress the C/T push button and US/M push button down until "VAR = XX" appears in the display. This takes about five seconds. 4. Release the push button(s). "VAR =XX " will remain in the display. "XX" equals the current variance zone setting. 5. On Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) and Compass Mini-Trip Computer (CMTC) equipped vehicles momentarily depress and release the STEP button to step through the zone numbers, until the zone number for your geographic location appears in the display. On Compass Temperature Module (CT) equipped vehicles depress the US/M push button to step through the zone numbers, until the zone number for your geographic location appears in the display. 6. On Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) and Compass Mini-Trip Computer (CMTC) equipped vehicles momentarily depress and release the RESET push button to enter the displayed zone number into the EVIC/CMTC module memory. On Compass Temperature Module (CT) equipped vehicles depress the C/T push button to enter the displayed zone number into the electronic module memory. 7. Confirm that the correct directions are now indicated by the compass.

I replaced the EGR Valve ($80 after tax), problem solved, vanruns great now. Now my problem is that I can't get the light to turn off.

You cannot clean them purchase a new one and pull the old one out of the valve cover, and disconnect the hose that runs to it. install the hose on to the new egr with a new worm clamp and push the other end into the valve cover. should take about 10 minutes.

Pop the cover off with flat-head screwdriver, then pull the bulb straight out and push new one in.

Testimonial: "Hey, thanks. It was just that never doing that operation, I wasn't sure where the tabs were and was afraid it might crack the lens. Your solution was right on. Took about 1 minute and saved what Quick Lube place was charging to do the replacement plus the cost of the bulbs! Thanks again."
I have the same problem with my Grand Caravan 2000 model. I fixed it once where it cost me approx $1500. We travel on a lot of gravel and it is Winter here a lot. Because the lines are right behind the wheel on the passenger side (what a silly place for such and important piece). It broke again anyway and now another $1500. Not!
I did find after much searching some parts on StreetRodGuys.com . It is a couple of pieces that screw onto the lines going to the back....thereby blocking the rear air off. We really didn't use it that much anyway...the rear that is. They say that when you recharge it to use about a pound less freon when it is recharged. Part is around $50. I plan on using R12a which is colder freon than R134a or R12 so should work fine. Parts just came this week.
Makes it much more bearable in the heat.

With the vehicle sitting on a level surface, open the hood. On top of each head lamp towards the rear of them you will see to T10 or T15 Torx or star shaped screw heads. Each head lamp can be adjusted from left to Right and up an down using these screws. Both headlamps may also have small levels on each of them.
I suggest that you adjust you lights in a garage or at dusk if you don't have a garage making sure that you have them both level or about waist high at 3 feet away. You should also have them facing straight or slightly (5 degrees) to the right. This avoids people flashing their lights at you.

Stop the vehicle and place it in "Park."
Press and hold the "Set" button on the compass for about two seconds. The button is located directly below the compass to the right.
Press the "E/M" button repeatedly until the correct zone is displayed. If you do not know your zone, you might have to contact your dealer for this information.
Press and hold the "Set" button for about two seconds until the display flashes, indicating that the compass is reset.
