Starts...won't start...not battery, not
Mine did the same thing. After having the batt checked and being assured there was nothing wrong with it I went "old school" and pulled and cleaned the batt cable ends. Also cleaned the connections just downstream from the ends as they were easy to get to. Haven't had a starting problem in 8 months now so must have found something. Hope this helps ya . Sometimes we get so wound in in high tech that forget the KISS system of troubleshooting.
Dodge Grand Caravan electrical problem with dash malfunction lights and windshield wipers go on sporadically
Hi, I also have a Dodge Grand Caravan 2008 with similar problems. The
windshield wipers would come on for no reason, A/C would cut off and not
come back on, none of the controls would work from the drivers side
door panel, "dinging" noise would come on intermittent, headlights would
flash like they had a mind of their own, dashboard would light up
erracticly, etc.After much searching on the internet, this seems to
be not so uncommon. I brought it in to the dodge dealer where I
purchased the vehicle and about $300 and 3 hours later the tech FINALLY
found the problem! Most of the wiring from the door panel back to the
body are "stranded" wires. These wires are made to be bent, time and
time again, as the drivers door is the most used. But there is a control
module that is also located inside the drivers door and it uses a
"twisted pair" of really small gauge SOLID wire (that goes back to the
onboard computer). If any of you out there have ever used Ethernet wire
you know exactly what I am talking about. These are the same wires down
to the color coding! Guess what happens when you bend a very small
diameter wire over and over and over again? One of the small wires broke
inside the rubber boot between the door and body. The tech told me what
he found and spliced the wires with a 50 cent connector. The guy was
honest and "kudos" to Salsbury Dodge in Baton Rouge. In my opinion this
should have been covered under the warranty because it was clearly a
defect in material and WORKMANSHIP (not to mention just a really DUMB
idea from the designers at Dodge). This $300 fix lasted about 1 1/2
years and the problem came back. This time I fixed it myself with a new
connector and a multimeter. Put the leads of the meter on both ends of
the suspect wire and check for continuity. You will find that one of the
twisted pair will have a break inside the insulation. Cut out the break
and splice with an inline connector and wrap with a small amount of
electrical tape. For my car the break was inside the rubber boot. If you
are not comfortable with taking your door apart, bring it to an honest
mechanic and he should have you in and out in about 3 hours (and
hopefully a LOT less than 300 bucks). Hopes this helps.
2008 Dodge Grand Caravan front blower RELAY location?
For the front blower motor, there isn't an individual relay. Note the diagram. The two wires at blower motor, one should be voltage and the other ground. The totally integrated power module is also involved. Any applicable trouble codes? I can' say that replacing the blower module will fix the problem?

My windshield wipers won't turn
What's up ? could be any number of thing's . Bad module ,instrument cluster , wiring , loose connection etc.... Looking at a wiring diagram to see what ,if anything all these componets share . Power or ground circuits . All these thing's are controlled by a BCM - body control module ,or TIPM - totally integrate power module .You have no idea the complexity of these systems . Your best bet mite be to take it to a qualified repair shop. Hooking up a factory or a professional type scan tool an checking for codes would be a good first step in the diagnostic process .
