I had the problem where the wires were damaged by road debris. The wires cross under the radiator, exposed, on the cross frame rail-driver's side. I put some shrink tubing over the wire, soldered them back together, slipped the shrink tubing over the repair and heated them up to seal nicely. Black tape over the repair. I thought i had a one in a million problem ;-).
Of course I bought a new sensor too...Doh. well I have a spare now.

WHAT DOES THE AMBIENT SENSOR CONNECT TO FROM THE SENSOR ITS SELF? DOES IT CONNECT TO THE COMPUTER OR INTAKE MANIFOLD


Hi Joe, I'm glad to help! The ambient temp sensor connects to the "Front Control Module" and when working properly will send the signal from the sensor to the overhead as well as other places that need an ambient signal. NOTE: Heres a simple way to see if the system is working properly. Unhook the connector at the Ambient Temp Sensor and the system should go to the default setting and the overhead display should read 40 degrees. If it does then the system is OK, replace the temp sensor. If it doesn't read 40 then various test must be performed to see if its the front control module or the overhead control unit. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Joe.

How do I remove and replace the ambient air temperature sensor on a 2010 dodge grand caravan


It is to the right front corner. You need to get down low to look thru a scoop like opening of the bumper. It's simple to replace, at least it is on my 2005. Buy it first so as to know what you are looking for.

Car wont start, saying code p0116 on a 2006 dodge caravan


this obd2 trouble code table can help you understand the meaning of code.
and for this code, you can try,

If there are any other ECT sensor codes, diagnose them first.

Using a scan tool, check the ECT reading. On a cold engine, it should match the IAT reading or should be equal to ambient (outside) temperature reading. If it does match the IAT or ambient temp, check the freeze frame data on your scan tool (if equipped). The saved data should tell you what the ECT reading was when the fault occurred.

a) If the saved info indicates that the engine coolant reading was at the coldest exreme (around -30 deg. F) then that's a good indication the ECT resistance was intermittently high (unless you live in Anchorage!) Check for an open in the ECT sensor ground and signal circuits and repair as necessary. If they appear okay, warm the engine up while monitoring the ECT for any intermittent jumps high or low. If there are replace the ECT.

b) If the saved info indicates that the engine coolant reading was at the warmest exreme (around 250+ deg.F) then that's a good indication the ECT resistance was intermittently low. Check for a short to ground on the signal circuit and repair as necessary. If it appears okay, warm the engine up while monitoring the ECT for any intermittent jumps high or low. If there are replace the ECT.

I bought a 2005 Dodge grand caravan sxt. The overhead info center tells me service park assist system. Most of the time it works great but sometimes when i am driving the message pops up and then it stops...


faulty sensor in teh bumper or bad connection, im not sure where the main module is on them. most likely in rear pannel, dr or pass side, check for rock beaten wires under the back of the van.
