Question about 2005 Dodge Caravan
Hi, I gave my '97 Town and Country cluster to a cluster repair center and they soldered the joints in the cluster. They said that there was a small crack somewhere inside. Now my mini van runs great! I used to hit the dashboard to fix the problem and that worked too. Now, however, I do not have to hit the dashboard and so far I have not had any problems on the road. Hope it works for you!

Exactly as wesbingham3 sez> my 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan AWD went in to limp mode just out of the blue(my wife had just used with no prob) then BAM just like that everything messed up. no speedometer, check engine light on, PRNDL all lite up and transmission in 2nd.... two repair shops and $400 dollars lighter the problem solved. battery acid had leaked down onto the PCM wireing harness and the whole thing was a mess. Why is crappy MOPAR battery leaking acid ???? case NOT cracked. overcharging or ??? most batteries don't leak acid ! ! would highly recommend GEL Cell.

The p1698 code is for the (bus) that is how the computers commmunicate with each other and also how the scan tool talks to the computers.
There is a common problem with these vans, that would be a good place to start. The battery will leak acid onto the wires underneath the battery. If you remove the battery and battery tray you will be able to see the large wiring harness under the battery. Inspect all of the wires underneath the battery for damage.
