Disconnect the battery for 1 minute and re-connect. start the vehicle and hold the revs at 1800-2000rpm for 10 seconds let the revs lower on their own then turn the a/c on and repeat. this will reset the base idle of the engine. remember all of these steps should be carried out in park or neutral, handbrake on.

SOURCE: 2002 dodge gran caravan transmition bum when

When was the last transmission tune? If you just had one and it wasn't at the dealer all the internal computer values will be off. The same happens as fluid wears also. If you haven't, get the fluid and filter changed, make sure the dealer performs a "quicklearn" on the transmission, this will relearn all the fluid volume vlues and shift points. This is a process which any dealer should perform when they do a trans tune. Hope this helps, if the problem persists, you may have internal damage, but what you are describing sounds pretty simple if looked after right away.
Cheers

SOURCE: Need install instruction for starter on 2002 Dodge Caravan

This is alittle tricky getting to some of the bolts but its not too hard to do otherwise. 2 bolts hold on the starter IIRC they are 13mm bolts. make sure your battery is dissconected by the black cable. then there will be 2 nuts holding on the starter wires. one will be 8mm and the other 13mm. remove them with care cause the wires may and can break. when you remove starter check wires for corrosion or if they look fraigle. repair them if damaged.
then to put it back in is the same way you took it out. should take about 1.5 hrs total if you have never done it before.

Overall i would say skill level 3/10 only cause its trickey getting to that top bolt sometimes.

good luck,
Michael

The fuse box is located under the hood. There is component map printed on the inside of the cover. This tells you on your model where the fuse or relay is located

SOURCE: my 2002 dodge grand caravan turn signal and wipers

Probably is the Body Control Module if you have checked the fuses in the fuse box and none are blown and you have verified power is coming to the wiper and signal switch. One simple fix you can try with the battery disconnected it to unplug and then replug the wriring harness to the BCM that fixed a Chrysler T&C that had the same problem. I also include what someone else gave as advice.
The body control module is located under the dash, directly behind the junction block that contains all the fuses/relays/plugs. The way you could verify that the wiring up to the bcm (from the wiper control) is working, before you go to the expense of replacing it, would be to locate the black plug on the bottom of the bcm (if you look under the junction block/bcm assembly you should see a gray connector and a black connector protruding from the underside of the bcm) and pull that plug, which is the one closer to the cowl. I believe you will find a dark green/yellow wire on pin #7 (from the wiper control) of the plug and a black/light green wire on pin #10 (ground). You may probe those wires with straight pins inserted thru the insulation so as to contact the internal conductor, then replace the plug (but make sure the straight pins don' touch oneanother), turn on the ignition switch to 'run', and measure the voltage between the two pins, you should find that the voltage will change proportionately as you cycle the wiper control through the six different positions of intermittancy. If not, then there is something the matter with the wiper control or its wiring. If the voltage is changing proportionately, then the manual does say to replace the bcm as the solution for that problem.

2002 dodge caravan ec the transmission downshifts hard only from 5mph to 0 when accelerating its shifts fine the van has 123000 on it


This happens sometimes with these. It is adaptable. And needs to be reset. Take the vehicle to a shop that has a scanner. The TCM needs to have a quick learn reset done on it. That should cure the problem.

2002 Dodge Grand Caravan I just put a master computer on. Is there a way that I can reset it? The engine runs fine so I know it works but it wont shift properly.


Hope you put a PCM in. TCM is in side the PCM. The TCM sometimes needs a brake in period. 200 miles. If not call the dealer to have then flash the PCM with the updates. Around $80 at the dealer. Tell them you want to FLASH to PCM for bump shifting. Any Chrysler, Jeep or Dodge dealer can do this in 1 hour. Thers a Chrysler TSB #2101807 Dated 10-27-07 about Transmission Reprogramming. If the dealer put the PCM take it back tell them about the TSB

Engine light on a 2002 dodge caravan


The check engine light is to alert you that the computer has noted a fault in one of the car's systems. Take the car to an autoparts store and have them scan the computer for stored fault codes. Most parts stores will do the scan for free. It will show what the computer has noted so you can address the problem/potential problem. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Transmission want go in gear want move when put in drive


You have to use ATF4 transmission fluid for the dodge caravan. If you changed the fluid and the filter, a quick relearn has to be performed by a technician. It requires a special computer device. Hope this helps.
