Question about 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan

1 Answer

1998 Dodge Caravan 3L. Starts and then stalls within 3 seconds. Turn key off then restart and same thing. Starts then stalls. If you leave key turned on and try to start it will not. You can hear fuel pump when you first turn key on. Was told it might be anti theft but do not know what to do about it. Thanks

    Finally fixed problem. After more research I found how to read codes by key on/off/on/off/on and counting "check engine soon" flashes. Came up code 12... 55. This according to mopar/codes was battery had been disconnected 50 times. Son had been borrowing van and taking battery out for boat numerous times. I cleared codes (by disconnecting battery for over a minute) versus turning key while pushing in trip meter. I then reconnected battery and away it went. 24 hours later and it is still working

I am having trouble starting my 1997 Dodge Caravan. It keeps rolling over, but takes about two minutes to actually start.


try turning key on and off 2or 3 times then see if it starts right up. if it is there is a check valve in the fuel pump. it cant be replaced. you would have to replace the whole sending unit. costs about $600.00

When I turn key lights come on but car does not start or do anything I have to turn key 3-4 times before it starts.


More than likely needs a starter, you may or may not hear a click when turning key to start. Have someone listen under hood while you do this.

Keyless remote stopped working, I replaced battery


The 1997 to 2003 Dodge Caravan and Grand Caravan use a standard key and remote setup with a separate remote fob. However, the 2004 to 2009 Dodge Caravan and Grand Caravan use a combination key and remote on one device. To program a new keyless entry remote for the 1997 to 2003 Dodge Caravan, you must have at least one functional remote, which is required to enter synchronization mode. To program the combination key for the 2004 to 2009 Dodge Caravan, you must have two functional combination keys. If you do not, you'll need to see an authorized Dodge dealer for keyless entry programming assistance.


2004 to 2009 Caravan Programming Instructions
  1. Insert one of your working combination keys into the ignition. Turn it to "On"; leave it in this position for about 10 seconds but no longer than 15 seconds. Turn it to "Off" and remove it.
  2. Insert your second working combination key into the ignition within 15 seconds of removing the previous key. Turn it to "On". After 10 seconds, you'll hear a chime and the "Theft" light will begin to flash, entering synchronization mode. Turn the key to "Off" and remove it.
  3. Insert the combination key you want to program. Turn it to "On." After 10 seconds, you'll hear a chime; then the "Theft" light will turn off. When the light turns off, the combination key--including the key and the remote--is programmed.
  4. Repeat Step Three for each combination key you want to program. A total of eight can be programmed.
Hope this help (remember comment and rated).
