Question about 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan

1 Answer

No power locks for a few months

I have had no power locks for a few months, brought to mech and they said need new motor. didn't pay to get fixed yet..
now driving and my dasboard lights all blinked on at same time and then gauges all went haywire for a moment, cycle repeated a few more times before i got home.
are these issues possibly related? i have read tons of issues with a software update or the body control module being the cause of most or all these issues.

I definitely would make an appointment at a dealer and have it checked. May be a software update required, or loose corroded connection, or faulty BCM. Yes they are all related as far as BCM goes.

A/C recharged and thermostat replaced, now engine over heats in first 20 minutes of use. After 15 minute "cool down", engine runs fine and in normal temp. zone.


check that there is no air lock in the cooling system
check if the thermostat was installed with the body of the unit facing the block and not the hose

this car has 2 system.s (option) front and rear, are both bad?
or just the front? you said only rest of van.
the front has 2 options, manual and auto controls panel.

i see no cables. that leaves damper motors or vacuum servos.
a real tech tests the controls, first. if they are good
he look in the FSM for the damper motor tests.
its there. and he hot wires it and finds, bingo, its bad.
and replaces it. labor can hit hr on dash pulls. 8hrs. work.

find another mech.
the parts are sold at Toyota. look there , in the parts sections
see it, see those parts.? sure are... there.... need help looking ask.
the dampers are bad.
a real mech finds out which damper is bad
if its a motor , he buys a new damper motor at TOY. for $150
if its just a cable it fixes that...

it can be 3 things
1: control bad. even a blown fuse.
2: connection from 1 to 3
3: bad damper motor.

bad parts 4,5,6? (part 6, mode motor bad?)

Stuck sunroof


check all fuses. (both fuse boxes)
if they are good.
that it can be 2 problems
1: electrical
2: it mech. jammed. up.
what a tech does, is check for 12v to the motor as you flip the switch
if 12v good the motors bad (silent) or jammed (groans)
if 12v pins , at 0v. then the power feed is bad, (switches and relays) ask how, (voltmeter checks easy)
if 12v to motor, then detach motor drive, and try to move roof
by hand , cant?, then its JAMMED, fix it. (mech. fault ,pure)
if you can move roof easy , then the motor is toast, replace it.

Car just shuts down when driving


Does your car have a "torque converter solenoid?" I had a car that would sometimes shut down when shifted into drive, the torque converter solenoid had gone bad.

Faulty Deactivation Switch for Cruise Control


No coincidence Pal. That cutout switch is part of the brake light switch and is easy to replace. It just screws into a bracket at the brake pedal lever and has a jamb nut on it to lock in position. Just get one from a parts store and replace it yourself.

Does a 2002 Toyota RAV4 have a relay for window motor? This car is one of the cheap-material-made junk one ever buys, it took Toyota years to finally recall transmission problem on sears of 2001-2003 more...


Hi, there is only one relay for all of the windows, so that is not the problem. The likely problem is the switch. I recommend you test the switch using an ohmmeter.
In the case of the door lock, that problem may be a failed lock motor. I recommend you apply power directly to the lock motor to see if it works. If it does, check the switch. If not, replace the motor.
