Question about 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan

1 Answer

I have a 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan with 110000 miles on it and the MIL indicator comes on and stays on. I have looked for the flashing MIL indicator when turning the key on but not starting the motor it does not flash. I have cycled the key on/off/on/off/on but still flashing MIL indicator. The positive battery terminal is severely corroded. We are supposed to be heading out of town today so any help would be greatly apprecaited.

Clean the main battery cable
Turn key to ON position (do not start). Leave in ON position for EXACTLY 10 FULL minutes. As SOON as the light turns off, then IMMEDIATELY start the vehicle. This will reset everything and it should start and run.

One other thing that can be done is to have the vehicle hooked up to a scan tool and have the light reset.

Air bag light is staying on after starting the car and driving.. on my 2006 dodge grand caravan


Light will come on when the system senses it cannot activate the
airbag. Best bet is to get a diagnostic.

What causes the engine light to stay on all the time


The check engine light is officially called the Malfunction indicator lamp
or (MIL) it alerts the driver when an OBDII emission or engine management problem occurs.The (MIL) may remain on if the OBDII system has detected a problem and recorded a fault code.
When the OBDII monitors detect a problem , the system sets a pending code . The (MIL) will not come on yet because the system needs to make sure the problem is real and not a temporary glitch . If the same problem occurs on a second trip (under the same conditions) the system will set a diagnostic trouble code (DTC) and turn on the (MIL) .
Hope this helps a bit .

You need to replace the EGR valve. It may or may not hurt the driveability. When mine went bad, I noticed bucking at lower RPM's which may or may not hurt something.
