Question about 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan
Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
This is probably more information that you wanted but... have to cover all the possibilities:
If you are servicing a system that has leaked you have no idea how much oil it left in the system.
DO it right the first time......
The proper way to service it is to connect it to a recovery & servicing unit. Evacuate and test the system for leaks, then reservice the system per the specs below.
1999 Dodge Caravan:
. Low side gauge (evaporator suction): 10 to 37 psi.*
. High side gauge (discharge): 112 to 210 psi.*
. Refrigerant oil capacity (without rear A/C): 5.00 oz.
. Refrigerant oil capacity (with rear A/C): 7.40 oz.
. Refrigerant capacity (without rear A/C): 2.13 lbs. of R-134a
. Refrigerant capacity (with rear A/C): 2.88 lbs. of R-134a
*Sea level and ambient air temperature of 80 degrees F.

You definitely want to find out why you were adding refrigerant because that is not a known toppable fluid meaning what you have is what you have you can't add to it without having had a leak that being said system capacities 43 ounces of r134a along with 10 ounces of pag oil keep in mind that the system will have had oil left in it no matter how bad the leak so unless you are replacing the entire system account for pag oil left in the system

I recently had the same issue, but my airbag warning lights also turned on. If this is the case, it might be the clockspring. There is a recall on clocksprings for Caravans 1998 - 2000 I believe. I got it replaced for free in the dealership. Enter your VIN in this site and it will tell you if you are covered in the free replacement warranty.
Hope this helps.

If i remember correctly, about 2.2lbs. of r134 for a front only system. If it has rear ac then atleast 3 lbs.,increase to you're reading 35psi on the low side & 150psi on the high side.

IF YOUR TALKING ABOUT THE POWER VENT WINDOW.IT MAY BE HYPER EXTENDED LIKE A KNEE OR ELBOW.TRY TAKING A SCREWDRIVER FROM THE OUTSIDE AND PUSHING THE HINGE INWARD JUST ENOUGH TO LET THE MOTOR WORK IT CLOSED.IF THE MOTOR ITSELF ISN'T WORKING PUSH THE HINGE JUST PAST CENTER THEN USE YOUR HAND TO CLOSE THE WINDOW PUSHING IT CLOSED WERE THE MOUNT IS UNTIL YOU CAN GET A NEW MOTOR.HOPE THIS HELPS
