Question about 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan

1 Answer

98 Dodge Grand Caravan SE - Multiple Issues PLZ help!

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!

Help Please?

Hello chekon,

Thank you for choosing fixya.com. The fuse box cover should have a diagram on the back of it, which will indicate which fuse represents it's component(s). If you are unsure what any abbreviations stand for or represent, look in your owners manual, or look in a service manual for the 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager. I also own a 98 Plymouth Grand Voyager (SE) and have a service manual for it, as well as for the 97 Dodge Caravan. My 98 has the 3.0 L engine, and I have done several maintenance requirements to it recently, so if you have any other questions, please let me know and I'll help you out.

Let me know if you need me to locate any fuses or relays for you. In the meantime, I'll do some searching online for some diagrams. Most sites charge for such items, however, if I find something I'll leave a comment with such findings.

Thank you again for choosing fixya.com.
