Factory alarm system has shut down the van what can I do?

Could you provide just a bit more info about what transpired and how it may have shut down the vehicle? I've had two electrical problems on my 98 Voyager, both affecting the alarm, but neither one having anything to do with the alarm itself. Include any details about erratic dash gauge behaviour, etc.

I'll bet you do have an immobilizer. When you turn the key, when it works, look at the lights on the top of the dash, toward the right side. Do you have a yellow light that lights up that says alarm? What you are describing is a common problem with 98 caravans. It sounds like you have a cracked circuit board in the cluster. When the cluster messes up it crashes the diagnostic line of the vehicle. When this happens the antitheft system cannot communicate with the ecm.

Battery for 98 Stratus

The light you speak of is actually indicating an issue with the charging system and is usually an indicator of a faulty alternator.
However if your light flashes and doesn't remain lit it could be a sign of a bad connection in the charging system. If it only flashes once in a while you are better off to wait until it remains lit for a while. Simply because electrical diagnosis is very time consuming and the mechanic can spend hours looking and still not find a clear cause for your issue. And these wasted hours can cost you BIG.
But keep in mind that when that light is lit your battery is not receiving a charge and will go dead and could leave you stranded. So don't stray too far from home until you can get this issue resolved
hope this helps! and thanks for choosing FIX YA!
