Question about 2002 Dodge Caravan

2 Answers

Hello, I have a 2002 Dodge caravan and I am having trouble with the driver side power window.The window will not go up or down until I bang on the door panel. It acts like a broken wire shorting out. Is this a common problem with Dodge Caravans? Any ideas how to Isolate the problem without replacing everything?

This problem is caused by a defective motor, the motor's brushes are sticking, so banging on the door jars them loose and it works again, this is a classic symptom of a defective window lift motor.

2002 power window dodge caravan pass side window wont go up or down. works w/ the main dr side control. where would the fuse be for this component? any other thoughts to fix this cheaply


The only problem with this vehicle is that it needs a new window switch on the passenger side door.If the main switch on the drivers door works and the one on the door that the window won't go up on won't work it replace the switch on that door they all work on the same fuse.

The power window on the passengers side stopped working. I tryed to check the fuses and breakers, but couldnt find either one. Question: is there one and I am just missing it? Drivers side works fine. It...


Probably motor and regulator, if you tried both switches on driver and passenger side suspect both window motor and regulator on passenger side sometimes while pressing the switch on the passenger side bang on the door panel inside and sometimes it may move if it does then suspect only the window motor.

Window wont roll down


The regulator is burnt out and you need a new one. I would just replace it.

Passenger Window Stuck all the way Down


Try switching the power window switch from the passenger side to the drivers side. Before you do that try with the switch on the up position, wiggle it from side to side. The contacts may be worn and by wiggling it may make contact. Other then that try to park it in side or garbage bag taped to keep rain out till you get it to the shop.
Hint, take it to a Auto window repair shop to replace the switch if it's bad or if the motor is bad. They have more experience to removing the door panels and removing the power window regulator (motor) if that needs to be replaced.
Good luck and hope this helps.

My power windows stopped working in my 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan.


Demand a recall or maybe there is one. I know Dodge has electrical problems with the way they made their vehicles. Many of there vehicles have trouble.
