Do this calibration reset, it will usually rest he lights and the ac will work again, if it doesn't reset you have a part failure and the dealer you need to hook a Chrysler scan tool to diagnose the problem.

CALIBRATION/DIAGNOSTICS TEST ENTRY
TO INITIATE TESTS:
Set Blower motor ON HIGH
Set Mode position to Panel
Set Temperature to Cold (Both slide pots if equipped)
Depress WASH and REAR WIPER button simultaneously for 5 Seconds (Until all LED's light)
RESULTS:
All LED's will turn on for 5 Seconds
Calibration Test is running when REAR WIPER and INTERMITTENT are alternately flashing. Cooldown test is running if A/C and RECIRC are alternately flashing.
Acceptable results is REAR WIPER LED is the only LED flashing. Push Rear Wiper to exit.
After all tests have passed, Calibration Diagnostics and Cooldown can be run separately

    When I ran the full test, it ended with the wiper blinking, and the recirc/AC blinking .... these two were blinking in unison

    I think at this point you need to consult the dealer for diagnostics.

It means the in-line filter is blocked and needs replacement. You may have a failed compressor that self destructed. The garage will have to do the work as the freon needs to be evacuated with a special pump first.
Try to find a shop that specializes in AC work, they will do the job the fastest and save you money in the long run.

When i start my 1998 dodge grand caravan my headlights,taillights,dash-lights start blinking off and on . why is this happening?


It is due to the hvac being out of calabration. On the left side of the A\C control panel hold down the top and bottoms buttons with the engine running, high blower, panel, full cold (both levers if so equipped). When the lights on the panel come on solid and then start flashing release buttons. It will take about 2 mins or less for it to calibrate. If only the top left button is flashing you are done. Press that button once or restart van all function should be normal.

My AC light is blinking and the air dont get cold?


HI, this is usually an issue the concerns the charge rate of the refrigerant level. have the system recharged asap.

Make sure to confirm proper AC clutch performance before the charge. I would advise to have the expansion valve inspected as well.

AC & Rear wiper switch button indicator lights blink


The procedure for re-setting the HVAC control panel on a 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan follows:
With ignition on but not running
1. turn knob to air vents
2. turn fan knob to ON
3. temperature setting on COLD (2X) {I have dual temp controls}
4. hold top(rear wiper) and bottom (rear wiper with wash) buttons pressing down together until all the buttons cycle through (this will require 1 to 2 minutes of continuous pressing)
I learned this from a very helpful local Dodge service adviser

My 1998 Dodge Caravan has a service engine soon light on.


Well barwest , you should always have code 12 ,,, 1 blink then 2 blinks , this is not a prob it is a code to tell you that the onboard dyignostics is working. now for the code 55 this means that the code read is done . so the numbers in the middle is really your prob but you are missing a number with the 3 , do the key again and let me know remember your code is after the 1 blink and 2 blinks ,try that ,there is a number missing ok , joe
