First of all check the fuses.The fuse box under the dash on the driver's side of the Caravan. If fuses checked out ok then,Start by checking under the dash. Make sure the wiring harness to the cluster is tight and connected. If that is good, you may have a bad cluster. To confirm this power will need to be checked to the cluster.If the instrument cluster has power and all wires are checked proper then other possibility is fault in BCM or BCM module shorted.The Body Control Module (BCM) controls all the systems that are not functioning, or functioning improperly.
And for turn signal lights and 4 way emergency flasher light not working,check the turn signal switch and flasher unit. When a blinker flasher fails it can cause blinker lights to say on, not blink, or not go on at all. To test the blinker system flasher, remove the flasher unit and insert a jumper wire between the two terminals. If blinker stays on in both directions without blinking, replace the flasher.If both test results are positive the turn signal switch has probably failed and replacement is required.The flasher controls both turn and emergency lights. The emergency switch reroutes the wiring to run all lights through the flasher circuit.The turn signal hazard flasher relay in the upper right corner of the fuse box. It should be easy to spot as it is the biggest of the relays in the box. The turn signal switch located art the bottom of the steering wheel.Its fitted by three screws. --------------- This troubleshooting procedure will help you to confirm the fault.Thanks.Helpmech.

The tail lights on my 2006 dodge grand caravan don't work. Any ideas as what could be wrong?


Check that the fuse is not blown and that there is no wiring fault. Otherwise check that the lights are not blown as well, and look at the following YT video to illustrate the removal of the light:

@ Don Reed, all you need do is to check to be sure the rear signal bulb is working, if its not, then change it, that will solve the problem.

I have no brake lights in my '97 dodge caravan le but i have taillights


Have yoiu changed/checled the lightbulbs? (In other words,do your turn signal lights work? If the front turn signal lights work, but the rear don't, then turn on your four (4) way flashers. If the rear lights still don't work, then all the bulbs are bad. It is rare for all the bulbs to be burnt out at the same time, but it does happen.

If the turn signal/four way flasher lights work, then you probably have a bad brake light switch. However, first check your owner's manual to make certain there is not a separate fuse for these lights. If there is, then swap the fuse for the brake lights for another fuse (or relay) of the same size/amperage. (Facing the hood, the power relay box is located on the right side (usually) under the hood.)

The fuse box is located under the dash, on the driver's side of the car. Usually there is a plastic cover that has to be removed to access the underside of the dash, and then there is a plastic cover that has to be removed to access the fuse box. If you don't have an owner's manual, nprmally the fuses and power relays are normally marked on the plastic covers your remove ot access the fuses and power relays.

If the fuses/relays are good, then you have a bad brake light switch. This is located on a bracket just above the brake pedal. When you push the pedal down, the switch makes contact. Disconnect the plug to the switch, and jump across the plug contacts (not the switch) with a small piece of wire, or if a piece of insulated wire is unavailable, you can use a paperclip, you won't get schocked, just make certain that the paperclip does not come in contact with a ground while you have it plugged in to the plug for the brake light switch.

If the lights stil dont work, check for power to the plug for the brake light switch. If you have power to the plug, the turn signals and four-way flashers work, then my guess would be that you have a broken power wire (probably iside the steering column, or a bad turn signal switch. If the brake lights work whe nyou jump out the brake light switch, then the brake light switch is defective.

All light on the car work but the turn signals dont work at all on 2000 dodge grand caravan


Assuming the fuse for the turn signals ia not blown, it sounds like the flasher unit is faulty. most vehicles have separate flashers for 4-ways and directionals so one may work while the other doesn't. Sorry, but don't recall the location of the flasher for that vehicle, but a parts store should be able to look it up for you.

On my 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan the brake lights and back turn signals work fine. I changed the bulbs no luck. Any ideas


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. Try checking your signal fuse and tail lamp fuse for the brake lights. They may have blown. If they are good, for the brake lights, you could have a bad brake switch, which is located right above your brake pedal. As for the turn signals, you could have a bad wire somewhere in the harness. Check closely at the bulb sockets. It is possible that you could have a loose wire at the signal switch or a bad wire.

Fuse box,, relays ?


Disconnect the battery for a minute or two and reconnect it. Sometimes the BCM (body control module) locks up.
