Question about 2005 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

My 2005 Dodge Caravan door locks do not work. I have tried disconnecting battery cable, removing IOD fuse which did work temporarily but lasted after 10 times. I am looking for a permanent fix and do not want to pay for something that I have already tried.

If you have the body control module scanned I'm sure you'll find there is a door lock code. When the computer detects a fault it disables the system. When you pull the fuse the code clears and it works until it detects the fault again. I believe there may be a new bcm flash that will correct your problem. It requires dealer level scan tools to perform. It could also be a bad lock solenoid, a bad door position sensor, open or shorted wire or bad bcm.

Driver side sliding door not working need diagram for IOD fuse


That fuse has nothing to do with the door. IOD stands for Ignition Off Draw-it's the circuit responsible for small amounts of battery power to keep computer memory, radio presets, the clock, and security system alive when key is in off or removed.
I don't know which fuse for the door, but not the IOD fuse.

Which fuse is the one for the door locks


The 2005 Dodge Caravans have software problem in the BCM that causes the power locks to quit working. The only fix is to bring the van to a dealer for a software flash update.Read more: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Where_is_the_fuse_located_for_power_door_locks_on_a_2005_Dodge_Grand_Caravan #ixzz271oz6ROB


disconnect the battery cable and pull the BCM fuse and do system reset and the door locks may work fine again.



also ro try to get the power door locks working. pull and reinstall (but not replace) all fuses and fuse blocks (but not the relays). The locks may start working after that.

disconnecting and reconnecting the lamp and horn relays may fix same issue with the locks.
Several people suggested resetting the fuses under the hood, and it worked. Others tried unplugging and plugging back in the battery and that also worked for them.

2005 Grand Caravan power door lock quit working. Side doors and rear cargo doors still open with keyless remote. Door lock "honks" when button pushed, but locks will not automatically...


This is a common issue with the 2005 Caravan. To fix the issue you can disconnecting your battery or disconnect the IOD fuse for 10 - 30 seconds in the fuse box located in the engine compartment. This is not a permant fix. Inorder to get this fixed permantly you need to take it to a dealer so they can update your computer.

My '05 Dodge Caravan is having power door lock problems. Presently they do not function. Any thoughts?


Under the hood on the drivers side is a fuse panel. Remove the top and locate the IOD fuse. Remove the fuse and look to make sure it's not blown. If it's ok simply replace it and locks should return to normal.
If the fuse is blown you will need another 10 amp mini fuse to replace it.

Doors will not lock.


chances are the light flashing is the alarm system not the door relay. locate the relay for the doors and replace it. usually located in the fuse panel under the dash.

Automatic door locks


I just had this problem tonight, did a Yahoo search and happened on this site, just tried pulling the IOD fuse (located in the covered panel next to the battery BTW), and re-installed it, and everything works again. Thanks for the tip!
