How far do we have to drive caravan to reset computer for inspection..

Your Dodge Grand Caravan, like all vehicles manufactured after 1996, has an on-board diagnostic system. When one of your Grand Caravan's sensors indicates that a system is not operating properly, it will trigger the vehicle's "check engine" light. Sometimes the cause of the error can be as simple as tightening a loose gas cap. In order to verify that the cause of the problem has been fixed, the computer on your Grand Caravan will need to be reset. This process is simple and takes less than 10 minutes.

1994 dodge caravan le hood release cable broke how do you open manually?

Most of these cable that break usually break at the connector under the dash. If this is the case you can still open the hood just find where the cable connects and pull this it should open the hood.

Hood will not open due to the release lever on the inside on a 1993 dodge caravan tried pulling the cable but it still will not release the hood

Problem could be the other end of cable came loose from hood release latch under hood. You need to look through the grill closely and see if it did. I have had a few dodge caravans that this has happend to.

The hood release lever does not release the hood.

Do you have a new cable?? If not most likely there is a need for it it may be stretched out. You can grab the end of the cable that goes to the release (in the interior) with a pliers and pull it this will finish the cable and a new one will most likely be needed

I need to change the alternator on my 2000 dodge grand caravan sport. Can someone please tell me how to release tension on the serpentine belt? Thank You.

I have to use a 15mm open/closed end wrench on the tensioner pulley. Use the closed end of the 15mm and pull toward you and use the end of a cresent wrench to use for additional torque. You can slip the belt over the fixed pulley (not the tensioner pulley). Give yourself more room by not using the hood bar and use instead a broomstick on the right side to prop the hood open. I recommend a goodyear gator belt too. Good Luck, you'll need it with a caravan. Its on the left side. its the easyest pully to see.

Hope this helps and please don't forget to rate.

Hood release

I had a '94 that some idiot at the oil change place left the dipstick laying on the top of the engine, which jammed the hood latch so it wouldn't open.

I happened to have the proper torx drivers for the grille to be removed and after that it wasn't much of a problem to release the latch.

How to replace serpentine belt for 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan?

Mine fell off twice so far once when going through snow and other was going through rainstorm had to use jack wrench to pry down and slip on belt which was hard to do and don't advise you to try. Ok the pulley directly under the alternator and in the middle of 3 other pulleys is the one that is the tensioner. To do this right use a 15 millimeter or 5/8 socket or open end wrench, the longer the handle the better so you can get good leverage maybe you have a pipe to slide over handle. There is a diagram of the way the belt goes on under the hood. I have a 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan
