Assuming these readings are false, I have asimilar problem in my 540 which tells me allt the exterior bulbs are not working. The bulb sensor is faulty so I think you are safe in your assumption although the oil light showing would scare me, false or not. I suggest you get a service agent to cast his/her eyes over that one.

1 beep every five minutes, i have no oil ***** light on ever.


Is it the oil warning? Beeps can come from a number of areas. My door closed warning would beep when I braked. Seat belt intermittent, even your speed warning setting beeping once when over setting got me once. I didn't even know I had set it.

If the oil light comes on before starting, (as do all warning lights) and doesn't show up on the beep, it probably is not the source of the beep.

Cheers

All dash warning lights come on and the temperature and tach needles drop to zero when the headlights are turned on.


Symptoms point to the cluster microprocessor. How was it proven? See diagram below.

Headlight left on warning not working, what should I look at?


Headlight on warning works through the radio and the Body Control Module (BCM). The BCM has an input from the lighting circuit and when it decides that the warning should turn on, it sends a class 2 serial data communications to the radio. The radio then sends a cime tone to the driver's front door speaker.

If by chance, you replaced the OEM radio with and aftermarket radio and did not install an interface module, you will be missing not only the headlight warning but many other warnings as well ( low oil / hot engine, etc.)

Headlights won't come on intermittently 2005 Dodge Caravan


Quite possibly the switch, Dodge minivans also have a front control module located under the hood, it attaches directly to the underhood fusebox, if a switch doesn't fix it I would look there.

Engine Transmission Light coming on intermittently


low pressure in the tranny, did you check the oil level in park? if so you might have to check it in gear with someone holding it on the brakes, then re-check... hopefully it isn;t the pressure solenoid.... $$$$$$.... they can be expensive, cheers!
