Question about 2007 Dodge Caravan SXT Minivan New Cars
Front brakes are pretty easy, just go to http://www.customtacos.com/tech/index.php?article=37 for step-by-step instructions with pictures. On the bolts that it tells you to remove, it says they are 17mm, on the caravan they will take a 12mm socket to remove (at least on my 2007 short wheel base SE). The only issue I have with this site is it does not tell you how to remove rotors, and I NEVER replace brake pads without having my rotors turned or replaced. after you have swung the caliper up like the instructions on the website tell you to, you'll notice the rotors are still held in place by the caliper mounting bracket. It is held on with two large bolts that bolt in from the back. If I remember right, they are a 3/4" or 19mm socket. If they've been on for a while (my first brake change was at 48,000 miles) then you will need WD40, a big socket wrench, and a lot of elbow grease to get those loose. Once that's free, you can easily remove the rotors. I would take them to Checker or another local auto parts store that turns rotors, they will let you know if they can be turned or if they need to be replaced. If you get new rotors, don't forget to clean them off with brake cleaner before installing them!!! They are coated with an anti-rust chemical that is very sticky and will smoke for miles and affect your braking. For rear brakes (assuming they are drums, if not, they will be the same as the front), there is a pretty good tutorial at http://trashcars.net/videos/1436/how-to-replace-rear-drum-brakes.html. You should also have your drums turned or replaced when you replace the rear brake shoes as well.

it comes off of the mirror and goes down inside the door. remove the door panel and find the wires coming out of the mirror down the door you will see the plug in about 6 inches or so below the mirror snapped into the door .

Check your fluid. Sensor is probley picking up the fluid going back & forth across it. If fluid is need use a small bottle to fill to get under the cowl cover under the hood. Use dot type 3
