On a 1996, you will have to take it to a dealership. They will have to plug it into their DRB (handheld computer thingy) to turn it off.

SOURCE: get back door open to change break lights

from inside, at the center bottom of the back door there should be a button covering a 1" hole. If you look inside with a flashlight you will see the linkage coming from the handle, with a straight screwdriver or a prybar gently lifting on the latch while pushing out on the door should give you success. . It Just worked for me.

Remote key won't control back doors


Locate the rear door actuator motor and check for power at its wiring when you operate the remote. If power is there, but no action, then replace motor/actuator.
If no power is present, then check the wiring and the relay within the central locking circuit box.

My lights on my 1996 caravan won't shut off until the timer shuts them off and they turn on when any door is opened


You are talking about interior lights, right ?
As long as the on-time is under a minute or two, its normal.
The lights are supposed to go off as soon as you start the van tho.

Own a 1996 Dodge Caravan. Power window doesn't work on drivers side, nor for the rear side windows. Replaced the power window switch and this did not solve the problem. The only window that works is...


nitescot, What you can try is to open up the rubber boot running from the body of the vehicle to the door. The constant opening and closing of the door will sometimes cause the wires inside the boot to break. This is a common problem when it comes to power windows. Open the boot with a knife being careful not to damage the wires inside. Look for any broken wires. Repair as necessary. Good luck with this.
