Electrical problem with a 1997 dodge caravan

My dodge caravan's engine light was on when i bought it and it bucked a little, i was told that it was an eletrical problem in the dashboard and we would need a new dashboard, we had everything else tested to make sure it wasnt the engine or transmission and it was all fine. That was a couple months ago (during that time it ran fine except a little jerking and the light on) now sometimes when we go to start it we have to bang on the dashboad to get it started and just these past days its been stalling when were stopped at a light but it starts right back up without having to bang on the dashboard any ideas? Do you really think its the daashboard?

Hi, I just bought a 97 caravan from a friend. Before I bought it, the engine light was on, ran fine. Before I purchased the van, my friend replaced the oxygen sensor and the engine light went off, still runs great. Good luck, Mike

The engine light came on. My mechanic put the little scanner on it and came up with a code (he didn't tell me what it was) that he said had to do with the emissions valve. $200 to fix. My question...


As long as there is a problem with the valve the light will stay on. I would take it to another mechanic for two reasons. 1 second opinion, 2 the mechanic should have told you the code and explained what the problem was, not just give you a price. And I think $200.00 is alittle steep
