The relay is under the hood. The panel will be marked for the fuses and relays. Pull the fuse and put it back in. It is good because the lights come, you are getting rid of corrosion when you do that. The relay, just swap it with another on the panel. If it stops, replace the relay. If it continues replace the light switch. Small tabs in the switch can heat up and loose contact. On and off, just like your problem.

Sounds like there is either an extra load on the lights, or the self-resetting fuse/relay is shutting down when it shouldn't. I'd measure the draw on that circuit, and if normal, replace the relay.

    The relay should be under the hood with the fuses right? And how do I measure the draw on that?

SOURCE: hazard lights wont stop flashing and car wont turn over.

unlock driver door twice consecutively because that's how u disarm the car alarm.As for the radio, input the code that's in ur booklet. If u don't have it, call ur local dealer with the car's serial number and they will give u the radio code. It's 4 digits.

SOURCE: Security light flashing and car won't start now

does it start at all, or does it run for about 1 second and shut off? if the latter, then it's the passlock system, and he could have a defective key or security module. the keys have a predetermined resistance value which activates the passlock system to prevent hotwiring. If it is the passlock system, then sometimes you have to wait 15-20 mins for it to reset before starting the engine.

SOURCE: 2005 Dodge Caravan will not start and engine light flashing 10x

most likely it is the electronic control module which is the brain computer that runs the car and all of the functions and it is not allowing the electrical system to operate or come online. your power supply is not reaching the ignition due to some sort of either an electrical short or blockage.

My 98 ram's cab lights stay on and blink off and on while i am driving, also my front right turn signal light does not work, it is not the bulb? what do you think it is?


The reason ur cab lights go on and off is from the door sensors on the door frame are not sending the correct signal to the light. Ur turn signal is either ur turn signal switch on your steering column or your turn signal relay

First... Read your owners manual - page 226 - Turn the ingnition switch to ON (do not start) and fully depress the accelerator pedal slowly 3 times within 10 seconds and then turn the ignition switch to OFF position.
Good luck and keep me posted.

98 Dodge Caravan-why are the led lights on the AC control panel flashing?


The blinking lights in the rear wiper rear defrost area can be reset by holding 2 buttons of the 3 on the left hand side. The top and bottom buttons. Turn the key on and hold them for about 10 sec and they should start flashing differently. Just let it do this. After they start flashing different. It will take 5 to 10 mins. Then one or more will quit flashing all together. If they don't after about 20 min reset them again it can take about 5 trys sometimes before they all go out.

Headlights won't come on


With the headlight switch pull to the on position (parking lights working - headlights won't come on), can you flash the lights to high beam. If so, you have a bad switch in the stearing columb. I had that problem on a 94 Ram 1500.
