Question about 2000 Dodge Caravan

1 Answer

Engine starts with no key/Radio will not come on/treble & base lights on constantly

I have had this used Caravan for about 2 months.The first real indication of problems surfaced when i took a trip to Buffalo, just before we crossed the border i stopped. When i whent to start the vechicle it would not turn over only a clicking sound.I took it to my mechanic he replaced the battery.My wife was driving on day got out of the van ,just she walked away the van stated with no key in ignition.It shut off and started again.My wife got in the van started it and left to do her errands.I thinking there is a major problem with the electrical commands being sent by the electrical modules?
