Question about 1997 Dodge Grand Caravan

4 Answers

1997 Dodge Grand Caravan. Everything seems to work fine. Only 32K miles. But lately there is an intermittant audible warning with no visible warning. I never know when it will start or stop. The only way I can stop it is to key off the ignition switch. What's up? Frank Heath. Email: jfheath2@yahoo.com

    What do you mean by "check documentation" for radio?

  • jfheath2 Jul 22, 2009

    I got a response from "Ginko", and I asked for clarification, but never received that. I need to know what he meant by "check documentation" regarding the radio. How soon can I expect a response? My email is jfheath2@yahoo.com Thank you, Frank

    Yes, I have checked seatbelts, gas cap, lights, doors, fluids, seat positions and have made an overall visual inspection. Now, what about the previous message regarding radio "check documentation" after disconnecting positive battery terminal?

    You are the 4th person I have contacted regarding this audible warning. Noone seems to want to address the "check documents" issue which was raised by the first person I contacted. Could you? Thanks

When he said "check documents" he probably was saying to "look at the owners manual" Did you try and plug in the passenger side seatbelt (even if no one is in the seat) to see if that takes the audible warning away? The only time a car makes this kind of noise is when the seat belt is disconnected, one of the doors is open, or the headlights are on

If there is no light on the dash then it is most probably a problem of the switches or circuits. Contact your local dealer.

    You need to know, that no one can read the other persons comments. So you would need to post the comment again.

Could be a seatbelt reminder warning. Are you fastening your seatbelt?

    I unlocked this so the person discussing the radio codes can get back with you. Good luck.

Hi Frank,

First check all the obvious stuff, doors, fluids etc. Also ensure that the fuel cap is well close, that can cause a warning beep starting.

You can reset the car control module unplugging the battery positive cable for five minutes.

When you plug cable back you may be asked the car radio unlock code. Check documentation to see if you will need the unlock code afteward.

If the problem comes back, then one of the sensors that can start the warning is faulty, a way to find the fault is scanning the control module with an OBDII code reader.

Regards.

worth checking the fuel tank for holes or there might be some fuel delivery pipes leaking badly. Or it might be an O2 sensor not giving correct signal to ecu thus consuming so much fuel.

Have a 98 dodge grand care van, the blinkers and day lights just stopped working the other day, everything else seems to be working fine in the van.


sounds like the main relay is out. Its either in the fuse box or under the hood in the engine compartment. Should tell on box lid what relay it is.

98 dodge caravan problems


I had the same issue with my dodge caravan and after several attempts by the dealer to fix it, it turned out to be a broken wire. They replaced the relay and it would work for a while and then go blank again. Have the wires checked thoroughly.
