Yes you can but if you have a security radio you will need the code for it to work some cars need to go through a computer relearn mode so they run a bit rough for a few minutes or might stall a few times till it heats up and driven around the block hope this helps

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.

The indicator lights and the neutral safety switch are the same sensor, if one does not work the niether will the other.The mode switch in the transmission needs to be checked and the easiest way to do this is with a scan tool.Seems so simple, i cant imagine why the dealer would not have looked at this.I dont understand why they would install a new computer for a no start condition.

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.

Power locks do not work- where are the fuses inside the the van


The problem is the BCM. The fix is a software update. Resetting the computer by removing and then replacing the 20 amp fuse marked 10D in the fuse box under the hood next to the battery is a temporary fix.
