Gauges in dash not working


this is a very common problem,and it can be 2 things. 1 instrument cluster needs to be replace. all of them are made with led set up and burn out causing not to work. the other is the body control module that is plugged into the fuse box under the dash. the body control module runs every thing inside the caravan.. I see a lot of these problems coming in my garage

My 2007 dodge caravan windshield wipers don't turn off and stay at slow speed only


The wipers are controlled through the BCM (body control module) you must have that scanned to see what is going on with the system. You will need the dealer on this diagnosis.

did the battery check to be good? are the connections on the battery tight and clean? if so you may be getting a bad body control module , it controls power and ground to the systems you are having problems with.also check the ignition switch to see if you are getting power out of it to power the vehicle up.

My 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan will crank but won't start.


Hi, if an engine cranks but refuses to start, it lacks ignition, fuel or compression. When the engine cranks normally but won't start, you need to check ignition, fuel and compression. Ignition is easy enough to check with a spark tester or by positioning a plug wire near a good ground. No spark? The most likely causes would be a failed ignition module, distributor pickup or crankshaft position (CKP) sensor.

it is going to be the cluster or the body control module. And with out seeing it I am almost certain it is the body control module . Are your door locks all working ? dodge uses the body control module it is like a computer brain and it controls everything electrical inside the cabin is the easiest way to explain. Its best to buy one from a dealer because they have to program it before it is installed. One thing you can do is go to the dealer or shop with chrysler scanner and have them check the body control module and the cluster. nothing else .

1998 caravan gauges not working


Its your Body Control Module, located under the dash on driver's side behind the fuse box. These are notorious for going bad. Best bet is to have it replaced with one from the salvage yard and reprogrammed by the dealer. Dealer could charge you up to 1k for a new one, but salvage yard is about $150-$200 for used and reprogrammed.
