I called larger dodge dealer,suggested towing van to there shop for full scan. my question to him: has dodge came up with a solution to this battery loss -computer problem? He was not aware of any.that i would have to live with this for a" 98" model . I can't help but to believe that someone has solved this problem or at least know how to save the programming when you lose batt power I'd like to know before I tow again to another shop?

No not at all. The problem may be with the anti-theft system. Sometimes in older cars, especially Dodges', the theft system starts to act up even though you put the key in the ignition. You may want to have it checked out at the dealership, shouldn't cost that much just to have it looked at.

Dodge caravan 1998 start problem (alarm set) ,the instument panel is not working and if i start , after 3-4 tryes,is shuting down in 3 seconds, any help?


I have had the same trouble with my 1998 Dodge Caravan, so has my neighbor on both of his caravan vans and We have found that if we slap down on the dash above the temperature gauge it will work just fine.

we both lose speedometer and fuel guages too! Same fix

about once a month I will have to slap it, to get my guages back, and stop the alarm.


I believe it is a bad soldiering connection in the dash but it is not worth chasing it down when I can get by without it.

when the post said the van worked fine after being towed it is because the connection was made while the van was jostled around being loaded and transported

98 dodge caravan problems


I had the same issue with my dodge caravan and after several attempts by the dealer to fix it, it turned out to be a broken wire. They replaced the relay and it would work for a while and then go blank again. Have the wires checked thoroughly.
