RESET PROCEDURE

With the ignition off, press the TRIP and RESET buttons at the same time you turn on the ignition. HOLD the buttons for 10 sec and the instrument cluster will go into a diagnostic sequence. I dont have the codes but you can find them online (999 means ok).

Doing this procedure will reset the dash cluster which will solve most of the problems.

Where is head light relay on 02 dodge dakota


Please tell me the problem with the lights as this year doesn't have any headlight relay, The most common problem is that the headlight switch gets hot and burns out along with the connector to it, both must be replaced as one repair. Solder and shrink tube the new headlight switch connector on, DO NOT use "crimp" connectors or the problem will occur again very quickly. The dash panel that is over the switch is easy to remove, just remove lower dash panel and then main panel screws and it comes right off.

I have a 1999 dodge caravan. Passenger sign turn signal flashes for a short period & goes solid. Reverse light & brake light work just fine. Multifunction switch, light sockets, light assembly...


Sounds like the relay is burning out. When the lights stop flashing does the indicator on the dash light up and stay on and/or does the exterior lights light up and stay on? If the indicator light is staying on then you have a wiring problem to the lights or you have the wrong bulb/ bulbs. If the exterior lights stay on it is a bad relay or power to the relay.

'99 Caravan lights fast flash


:) you already know the answer, its the relay, you will have to replace it. However it isnt under the dash its under the hood. There should be a fuse box, with fuse's and relay's in them. Open the box and you will be able to identify the relay by

1.) its labled
2.) listen to the clicking
3.) touching each one and you will feel a vibration when it clicks.

if you wish you can sub the relay with another one from the same box (be sure its the same kind) to verify it is the relay.

Remove it and buy a new one. Yes you can remove the relay and drive the car, just the lighs wont work :)..

No headlights, or dash lights.


check the ground cable at the battery , youll see a break in the ground wire at the battery box, check to make sure the bolt is tight and not corroded (the break is the ground for most of the lighting )
