Question about 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan
This is a LONG story, here's the short and sweet version.
Out of nowhere the Service Engine light came on. RPM's jump, spedometer jumps and cruise light comes on intermittently. Without keeping a foot on the gas at all times, the car would not stay running. Got out to check under the hood and everything was fine, except for a noise coming from the under-the-hood fuse box. We think its a relay.
Didn't get to fix the original problem. Because of the way we had to drive it to keep it running (we were 2 hours from home) we ended up busting the main driveshaft axle for the transmission. After we got it back from the shop it ran fine, only problem was that rear wiper/rear wash/ac/etc. lights blinked for about 15 minutes - so we just went home and hoped it wouldnt happen again.
Now, its happening again. Service Engine light comes on, all these problems occur for like 5 seconds then it stops - and it does this repeatedly. Happens more often at lower speeds.
What we know - it has something to do with a Relay (this is where the sounds were coming from in the fuse box), we were told it can only be fixed by a chrysler dealer, and we have the correct relay but we don't know which one it is!
You can go to your public library and they will have books that tell you what one is the right one.........most public libraries have the Chilton, some have the Hayes, and some have the Hanes manuals, i reccomend the Chilton.........hope this helps...............
