Question about 1997 Plymouth Voyager

1 Answer

FLASHING LIGHTS: The lights for the rear wipers & heat (up & down) controls are flashing then goes away within half-of-an-hour AND it returns each time the van is turned off. Mechanics are suggesting that there's a need for re-programing for it to be erased and return to normal. How's this resolved?

Hello; Hopefully you can use this info. First , Make sure the washer fluid is not empty. or the connector on the reservoir is intact and proper connection is made. If there is a questionable connection, simply moving it willclear it up. On the re programing suggestion is really not re programing. More like resetting. Obtain an obd2 code scanner and get the diagnostic fault code from the car. This will confirm it is the system you suspect. After completing my suggestion, erase the fault code with the scan tool. If you have corrected the problem , the flashing will stop. Of course, if not the flashing will return and the fault code will again be there to read.. Question? Do these systems work regardless of lights flashing? I ask because if not, the light is indicating a system failure. If they do work the light is an alert of system discrepancy that is usually a maintenance issue. Peas keep me informed on the findings and feel free to seek my assistance through fix-ya. Thank you.-Ned_

1998 Dodge grand caravan .there is a module that needs reprogrammed,this happens all the time. How?


Put your controls all the way to cold(mine is all the way to left). Turn your blower switch all the way to High. Put the position to console vents(all the way left).Hold down top left button(rear wiper) and bottom left button(rear washer) at the same time until all lights are solid. Then release. Let the buttons flash until only top left(rear wiper) is flashing. Then press top left(rear wiper) to end test.Should help those pesky flashing lights unless there are deeper Problems!

OK got your message on the other post (About the van) I am assuming that your Voyager is equipped with Automatic Climate Control. Follow the instructions below and you will get a better idea of what is wrong with your system.

Calibration/Diagnostics
1. To enter calibration/diagnostics test, set parking brake. Start and warm engine to normal operating temperature. With engine idling, turn blower switch to high. Turn mode switch to panel. Open all outlets. Move temperature to full cold.
2. Press and hold rear wash and rear wiper buttons simultaneously for 5 seconds (Until ALL LEDs illuminate). All LEDs should illuminate for 5 seconds. Rear wiper and intermittent rear wiper button LEDs will flash alternately during calibration/diagnostics test.
3. After approximately 60 seconds, if only the rear wiper button LED is flashing, calibration is successful and the system is okay. If rear wiper and intermittent rear wiper button LEDs are flashing, Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) are present. (See "Reading Diagnostic Codes" below)
4. To exit calibration/diagnostics test at any time, press the rear window defogger button, rear wiper button, or cycle the ignition off and then on. Test will automatically terminate 15 minutes after calibration/diagnostics is entered.

Reading Diagnostic Codes
1. Perform calibration/diagnostics test. If a DTC is present after calibration/diagnostics test has been performed, system will flash rear wiper and intermittent rear wiper button LEDs in sequence. Rear wiper represents code level, and intermittent rear wiper button LED represents code value.
2. Each time the rear wash button is depressed, rear wiper button LED wil cycle to the next code level in numeric sequence. After code level 5 is reached, rear wiper button LED will cycle back to code level 1. See table below.

What has most likely happened is that the Heater-a/c unit needs to be recalibrated and here are the steps to do so.
With the engine running and fully warmed up, A/C has to be turned off for at least 5 minutes [don't turn it on at all] and transmission in Park do the following
1. Set the temp control all the way to cold
2. Set the mode selector to Vent so air blows out of the dash panel outlets.
3. Hold down the rear washer button and the rear wiper buttons simultaineously for about 5 seconds until most all of the heater and ac panel lights blink and then release both buttons
6. At this point the system should go into a self calibration test which can take up to 60 seconds. While it is calibrating various control panel switch lights will blink as it goes through it's tests.
7. When the system is done calibrating then just the rear wiper light should be flashing and you can exit the test by turning off the vehicle. Wait about 10 seconds and restart the engine and it should be fine. If both the rear wiper and intermittent light are both still flashing after the calibration then there is most likely a problem with the system that will need more diagnosing. I see this fairly often with battery replacements so I think you'll be ok. It sometimes takes a couple of tries to calibrate so don't give up if it doesn't work the first time. Good luck, hope this helps!

Lights flash on ac rec and rear wiper buttons. Put on new ac com


With my 1998 TC you have to start car turn to cold and fan on high. Tehn hold down the rear wiper and WASH buttons until the lights start flashing differently. Let it run through until only the rear wiper light is blinking. You should here it cycling through the different functions. When it is jsut the rear wiper blink press that button and the system is reset if there are no problems. A low voltafge problem had caused mine to act up.

Rear Wipers


You need to try reseting the control head. You need to push and hold the the upper and lower buttons on the left side of the control head untill all of the lights start flashing. It will cylce through a flashing lights sequence and then everything should be working fine.
