You may have lost a major ground. The places to look are as follows; 1. Check the main battery to engine ground(black). 2. Check the ground wire pigtail that splits off from the main groun to the engine. This wire will connect to the inner fenderwell on the passenger side. 3.Ckeck for a braided flat wire without coating running from the firewall to the engine intake manifold, usually the bolt that mounts thios wire to the engine is one of the intake mounting bolts. Good luck, Dana

Check for fuel pressure and spark could be coil pack or ignition module for spark or could be fuel pump or crank sensor could be fuel filter could be a fuse hard to say without seeing it

One thing that IS VERY COMMON with 96-97-98 Carivans is @ the BATTERY the Main POWER + CABLES that BRANCH off to Go INTO the Vehicle get CORRODED and Loose CONTACT. ALSO The GROUNDS @ BATTERY Do the SAME But MAINLY The POWER+ LEADS are PROBLEMATIC

Hope this Helps you out Here

Put new battey in 1998 dodge grand caravan light still on


I'm guessing, as you aren't clear which light, it's the dash warning light that is on. It probably needs to be cleared with a computer. After code checks on the computerized caes, the mechanic usually clears the code and the light goes out. The testers for the computers are available at AUTO ZONE and most car parts stores and some WAL MARTS!! Hope this helps!!

Speedo and tack lights dont work on 1998 v6 3.3 dodge caravan replace all fuses and lights instrument cluster looks ok ?


This is most likely in the cluster. It may have replacable bulbs in the back of it. If it does not, than it is a sealed system and the cluster needs to be replaced. Good news is you can put a used cluster in this van and you will not lose your miles.

No not at all. The problem may be with the anti-theft system. Sometimes in older cars, especially Dodges', the theft system starts to act up even though you put the key in the ignition. You may want to have it checked out at the dealership, shouldn't cost that much just to have it looked at.

Blinking instrument panel lights on buttons won't stop blinking. I've changed the fuses already. It all started when someone plugged their machine into the van computer.


Take it to a garage and ask them to clear the codes.Take it back to the person who put a diagnostic scanner on it that will clear the codes.

Check engine light is on my 1998 ram van 3500


Bring it to a parts store, most will scan for engine trouble codes for free. They will plug a hand held scan tool into the vans diagnostic port (under the dash) and 'read' codes stored in the van's computer. They can tell you what the codes mean, and suggest how to fix it. If you have any further questions at that time, post them here with the code #'s. Good luck. Curt

Dodge caravan 1998 start problem (alarm set) ,the instument panel is not working and if i start , after 3-4 tryes,is shuting down in 3 seconds, any help?


I have had the same trouble with my 1998 Dodge Caravan, so has my neighbor on both of his caravan vans and We have found that if we slap down on the dash above the temperature gauge it will work just fine.

we both lose speedometer and fuel guages too! Same fix

about once a month I will have to slap it, to get my guages back, and stop the alarm.


I believe it is a bad soldiering connection in the dash but it is not worth chasing it down when I can get by without it.

when the post said the van worked fine after being towed it is because the connection was made while the van was jostled around being loaded and transported
