Question about 1997 Dodge Caravan

1997 Dodge Caravan

Why would the switches on this van change polarity? Turn on lights to shut off... Turning up a/c blower turns it down and vice verse. Also check engine light comes on, runs rough and dies out.

The switches should no be doing that at all.
The system has to get checked out. The body control module could be going out. There could be a short in the vehicle wiring harness some where.

Interior lights on a 1994 Dodge Caravan will not turn off when engine is turned off which drains the battery. Can they be disconnected and how?


You can remove the fuse for the interior lights after you turn van off for a temporary fix.Thinkin there should be some kind of sensor/timer thats gone out,not allowing the lights to shut off after van is shut down and doors closed

Does the van have an anti-theft system ?
If so you may need to reset it.
If not, a mechanic would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch.

I have a 1997 dodge grand caravan with a 3.8L I replaced the radiator cooling fan relay switch and fuses but when idling for more than 5 mins. the van starts overheating


Water pump impeller could be bad or thermostat is stuck shut. I would change thermostat first,easy to change, cost under $10.00 Water pump is hard to change in this van, you have to remove right tire, then inside wheel well, then loosen 3 top motor mount bolts which will lower engine so you can get to water pump and tensioner.
