Sounds like the TIPM module attached to the fuse box. Dodge charges 1205.00 to replace it

I would check all connections. Make the belt that spins the alternator is tight. If you can get the vehicle to an advance auto parts or any tech that can test the battery and charging system that would help. They can all so a see if anything is drawing from the battery this will let you know If there is a problem with something draining the battery

SOURCE: Battery replaced on 2001 grand dodge caravan now radio dont work

U will need to enter the radio anti theft code, this lock out was triggered by the loss of voltage to the radio during the battery change, this code is unique to each radio and cam in the owners information packet when the cat was sold new.

SOURCE: Charging problem on 1996 Dodge Ram 3500 Cummins Turbo Diesel

I had the same problem on a 94 dodge with the cummins. It seems the crank sensor that reads from a notch on the harmonic balancer was the problem Without this sensor reading that the engine is running the alternator wont charge. Possibly the same problem with yours

SOURCE: Battery loses charge while driving. Won't

It sounds like you have a major compent shorted out somewhere. Some thing is causing a discharge. Therefore your altenator is not responding and the car is draining the battery. Is the circuit between the altenator and the battery broken?? Also, you may need to check all the chassis grounds. Sometimes all your problems can stem from just a bad ground.

Check the battery first. Just because the lights are on doesn't mean it has enough power to start the van. If you or the van has a volt meter, the battery should read at least 13-14 volts to be good. If the battery is good then the alternator is good and we move on to the starter solenoid. I'm sure it's one of these. Do the lights go off or very dim when you turn the key? If so then battery.

2012 Grand Caravan. How do I turn the battery light off after installing a new battery?


Test the alternator. The battery light is for the charging system. Once the charging system is working with the engine running, the light should go off. If your light stays on with engine running, the alternator may need service or replacement.

To test the charging system, just put a voltmeter on the battery with engine running. The voltmeter should register at least 13.5 volts- alternator is charging. If you only show battery voltage with engine running, like 12.2-12.8 volts, the alternator or charging system is not working. The battery light should be on to signify this.

In a 2002 Grand Caravan What dose the Battery looking dash light mean when it comes on and stays on? Has a new battery in it.


Hi there,

If the battery dash light remains on, it is a strong indication that you have a recharging issue. The new battery will only work if the alternator keeps it charged well. My suggestion would be to take your car to a mechanic and have your alternator tested.

Good luck.

Electrical: I have a 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan and the battery light came on . So i hooked up my tester on the alternator and got a low output, than disconnected the negative terminal while the engine


My 2000 Caravan developed this problem after our hard winter so I searched and found that tapping the alternator might reveal that the brushes were intermittent. Sure enough, a slight tap caused the charging voltage to come on at around 14 Volts. A new brush assembly was under $10 on eBay and after finally getting the alternator out and the brushes replaced, re-installed all was well!

96 grand caravan 3.3l battery not staying charged. new serpintine belt, batterty, pulleys, and alternator tested ok several times. Also new computer installed and no fuses are blown. Should I replace the...


if alternator tested fine the wire on the back of the alternator is not getting a circuit back to the battery to charge it.
You can run a wire from the back of the alternator to the battery positive post and it will charge the battery.
I have done that several times on dodges because of ammeter gauge in dash being burnt out.
With the ammeter gauge burnt out it breaks the circuit from the alternator to the battery and the battery does not get charged.

2001 Dodge Grand Caravan battery light is on. Battery and alternator have been checked and are ok. What could be wrong?


The alternator has a bad diode in the diode bridge in the alternator,this turns the light on,even though the alternator checks good,and is charging correctly,there is a bad diode,this diode ,along with others,changes ac voltage to dc voltage,if not replaced,it will start causing components to go out.
