Question about 1998 Plymouth Voyager

1 Answer

Turn signals stopped working now no power

Help! Several things happened all at once. Just had my clock spring replaced on my 98 plymouth voyager yesterday. Today, took the van out to gas up and the van wouldn't start back up. Blower is not coming on and the turn signals stopped too. Turned the key and had power for a split second then nothing but a faint chime even though the key isn't in the ignition and the lights are not on. Got a jump start and the van started on the first try. It appears a battery is needed, but what would cause both the turn signals and and the blower to stop working at the same time

    Connections appeared good but tightened them anyway since the van had just come from the dealer for a new clock spring. Started right up. Had the battery checked anyway. CCA was 460. Replaced battery. Now on to the turn signals. Any ideas why it isn't working. Flashers work fine as does the wipers and high beams.

    I guess my question is: What do the blower and turn signal share? Is there a place to look to see why both stopped working at the same time? Maybe a particular junction block?

    Here we go...found a solution to the blinker/blower problem. Turns out that fuse #12 located under the dash, handles the turn signals, blower, and back-up lights. I didn't even know my back-up lights were out. I replaced the fuse but now wonder what may have caused it to fault initially. My service engine soon indicator came on and I had it checked. Code P1899. That's apparently a Park/Neutral switch problem. Since the back up lights are tied to this #12 fuse, could that Park/Neutral switch have caused a problem with the backup lights and thereby, blowing fuse #12?

I concur this is a power supply fault of some sort, insure your battery connections are maintained, meaning clean and good of contact, obtain a voltmeter and test the voltage at the battery contacts it should be about 12.5 or higher, turn the key on and try to start, noting the voltage, if it drops below 11 volts, there's your fault if not a poor ground from the battery and the frame of your vehicle may be faulty but boosting your vehicle from another sports battery fault

    well your technician servicing your airbag may have inadvertently shorted power to ground, have you checked all the fuses related to the blower and turn signal, are your brake lights working ?, do you know how to use a voltmeter?, if so probe the locations (blower fuse and turn signal fuse) both sides of the fuses with the key on and set meter for dc voltage and a value higher than 12 volts you should have voltage on both sides of the fuse if there is no measurable voltage contact me again and i will continue to help good luck

    well hello again, yes there is a comicality to both, if you checked with a voltmeter an probed both sides of your blower and wiper fuse and found no power evident with the key on it is possible that your key switch accessory terminal may be burnt(not making contact) or near the battery you will find a fuse-link wire connecting your battery to your key switch assembly, 2 very good possibility's to check on next
    good luck, and let me know how you did

Left turn signal

Steps to take to see where the problem is. #1 pull out the bulb and turn on the signal. Now with a test light touch the center point and see if you have power. If so, replace the bulb. #2 If you do not have power then you may have to replace the clock spring inside the steering column. #3 If on the left side one light does come on and the other doesn't (and it does not blink faster than normal - a burnt out bulb will cause the other bulb to flash faster than normal) than you may have a break in the wiring. And #4 If one side works the other does not and the bulbs are good try the flasher unit. had this happen to me once.

Cruise control not functioning

You have a defective clock spring ribbon rotating contact drum under the steering wheel, contact a local repair shop for more details on this part and how to replace it, since the airbag is involved in this repair it is best left to the dealer or a shop you trust.

The cruise control and horn quit together, but there is no fuse marked as such.

The horn is protected by fuse #9 (20 Amp), but my diagrams don't show which fuse
controls the cruise control.
Your Voyager has 2 fuse panels - one under the driver's side instrument panel (just to the right
of the parking brake pedal), and one next to the battery, under a plastic cover..

Fig 1 - driver's side interior fuse panel - note proximity to parking brake pedal - 99 Plymouth Voyager


Fig. 2 - Engine Compartment fuse panel - note proximity to battery - 99 Plymouth Voyager

I have a 1998 plymouth voyager, and i just replaced the rack n pinion, and now my airbag light is on, my horn, and cruise controls on the steering wheel dont work.

behind the air bag is what is called a clock spring, it supplies power to all of those functions, chances are when the rack n pinon was replaced the steering wheel was not locked and it turned too many times, and it broke the connection behind there. so chances are you will need a clock spring. if you had it done at a repair shop I would bring it back and have them repair it.
