May be bad alternator, or battery. Most auto parts stores can test batteries and alternators for free. Have both checked. If alternator is not charging, a new battery will start great a couple of times, then it's run down and you are back where you began.

Alternator is overhauled, still not charging. But batterylight on revcounter doesnt light up when ignition is switched on.


Check the voltage at the alternator big wire. 14 volts? check at the battery, 12 volts. The wire is corroded or bad. If the alternator lead is showing battery volt(12) check the alternator plug. Pull it off, With key on it should show 12 volts one one wire and ground on the other. Takes at least test light to confirm this

I went and get the truck inspected the obd plug wouldnt read then it did the auto place said it was a loose wire then a week later my signal lights buzzed and door will buzz and the key is out of the...


first check all the wiring leading up to the "repaired" obd plug it may be there seeing as how the problems seemed to have appeared after it was fixed. after check the wiring to the radio as that may have caused the radio to quit and may be the cause of the other problems as well.

Alternator bad know


Take the car to a local Autozone and have the Alternator tested, it is free. Also when the "Battery" light comes on it doesn't mean there is a problem with the battery persay it means the battery is not getting charged up while you drive.

What is the codes for a 95 dodge caravan 3.0 v6 it's blinks twice


The 95 Caravan is great for giving you trouble codes. However they are two digit codes. There should be a blink sequence followed by a short pause then another blink sequence (example 2 blinks, short pause, 3 blinks... Then 5 blinks, pause, 5 blinks which means no more codes. Turn key from off to run three times and leave in run and watch check engine light to count blinks. Disconnecting negative terminal on battery for 30 seconds clears codes.
