Question about 1998 Dodge Caravan

2 Answers

Won't start Van won't start, makes clicking noise even without key in ignition, the alarm system light inside the van is blinking. The buzzing/static sound we hear coming from the van is coming from under the steering wheel area. We have tried to jump the van. The lights will not come on, radio, time, or any other signs of life. Any ideas? Thanks, Laura

Chrysler van won't go forward or revers


Im having the same problem as you. First thing is, If it was a valve popping it would make the noise when started not only when in reverse. Secondly, the vehicle is starting so its not the battery, if it were clicking from the battery it would mean the van wouldnt start and it would be clicking when it tries to turn over.

only thing i can think of trying is to use the key to lock and then unlock the drivers door, this will disarm the security system/engine immobilizer

You most likely have a failed anti theft system. Go to this link to read about these systems. I have no permanent fix for you, but you might be able to bypass the anti theft parts at the ignition. This might get you going. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

The way to approach this sreies of issues is to first remove the remote start/alarm from the equation and restore the vans electrical system back to original. From there, if it persists, we can do more trouble shooting. Let me know and I can walk you through the process. This is definately a problem that does require a diagnostician. Thank you for the level of detail you provided!

Security light flash no security system on truck


sometimes turning the ignition on 3 times quickly without starting will reset the computer. If the van has power locks and keyless entry then try using only the keyless entry. Sometimes your car wont have a alarm but an anti theft device which will not allow it to start if it goes off or something triggers it.

1992 ford econoline club wagon van alarm randomly activates


I have the same problem on my Chateau, Can't buy new module, probably cost a fortune anyway. Disconnect the Grey connector on the alarm control module. I left the black on on for no special reason. Your power door locks will no longer work. (I'm not sure about the horn. If it doesn't I'll do something else)
The black control module is located on side of the van about 1 foot behind the drivers seat. Remove 2 plastic push in clips and yank the panel away to gain access to the module.

Can mean many things, automatic gearbox, emissions problems and if it flashes, it is an immobilizer fault. The car can be driven, if running ok but the engine management system should be checked ASAP. You will need EOBD diagnostic equipment to find cause. vauxhall can check this 4 u but it will cost u £47 unfortuanely but 4 that price u can get the diagnostic reader ur self the port is under the ash tray or the cover below the hand brakeRAC.htm">http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/7402742/Trail/searchtext>RAC.htm
