Check your mechanics manual. There is most likely a sequence of times you must turn your vehicle on, then turn the key back one click. you can actually hear the module trying to reprogram itself. If a vandal was at fault and damaged anything, you may have to take it to a mechanic. My daughters Chevy Venture was stolen and destroyed. Little by little we put things back in order..glass/modules/ignition etc. I was not able to reset the system, and had to take it to a dealer. Still cheaper than a replacement van though. Good Luck! :)

SOURCE: 2001 Dodge Caravan heater blows cold air when stopped

Have you checked the coolant level? What you describe is exactly what happens if the coolant level is low. When stopped at idle, hot coolant is not circulating through the heater core, so no heat. As the engine increases in rpm's when you pull away from the light, the water pump is spinning quicker, and some coolant is making it to the heater core. So check the level, and if it is low, keep an eye on it to see if it drops again. That of course indicates a leak somewhere. Get it fixed, as overheating the engine leads to costly repairs and worse case a new engine. Let me know how you make out with this.

How to disable the vats security system on my 2001 oldsmobile alero?


you cant disable it, its a pass key system not a vats system (vats reads a resistance value in the key). The ignition cylinder has a sensor in it that measures a rotating resistance (then translates into a voltage reading) that the bcm reads to let the car know to start. Usually you can try and start the car, then the security light will start flashing - leave the key in the on position for ten minutes until the security light goes out. Then turn the key off, wait, then try and restart - they usually relearn the code after the first 10 minute try. Sometimes it takes three 10 minute cycles.

How can I unlock the back door with a key, without the alarm going off?


If you unlock the driver's door with a key, it will turn off the security system. Then you can open the back liftgate. The oter option is to not set the alarm when you get out of your vehicle. If you use the remote to unlock, this also disables the security system. (This is all assuming that you do not have an aftermarket security system installed, in which case, I cannot help you,)

Hi, I have a 1999 Dodge Caravan, I lost my main set of keys with the clicker and chip key. I now only have one spare key. The alarm was accidently set. I can get in but the alarm goes off and the car will...


Try locking and unlocking the rear tailgate lock with your key. That should turn off the factory security system. As for the keys, if you no longer have a key with a 'chip' in it, the vehicle will not stay running, until you replace the 'chip' key. The immobolizer system needs a key with a 'chip' to work.

yes it can and if the battery goes dead or is unhooked it will disable the engine from starting and your model has the security system, call your dealer it's under warranty or should be and then will tell you how to reset it. Hope this helps.

I have a 1997 Dodge grand caravan. Wipers go on with switch off


It's the body control module. I had the same thing happen with my caravan. It eventually evolved into the following problems no interior lights or chimes, no remote mirrors, dash lights and instrumentation goes out and ABS light comes on, no lighted vanity mirrors, blinking recirc & a/c buttons, no high beams. THe dealer said a BCM would be $700.00 with exchange otherwise w/o exchange 1200. I found one online - ebay. BE CAREFUl...if you don't have security on your vehicle DO NOT buy a unit that has the security feature..your vehicle will not run if you install this. match the part number off of your unit but also match the features.

This is a bad PCM. Try to disconnect the security system first and if it still does not start then it is the PCM.
