The light switch reports to the body control module. The BCM tell the front control module in the Integrated power module (IPM) to provide power. So check for power and ground in each bulb socket. If you see ground but no power, suspect a bad front control module or a bad IPM. Both are known problems.

SOURCE: Turn signals dont work headlights dont dim heater fan doesnt work

Did all these problems happen all at one time?? If so you may have a bad body ground. Try running a electrical wire from the (-) negative side of the battery to the body and see if this works. Be sure this wire is to a place with no paint as low voltage electricity will not flow through paint.
A). If not try replacing the turn signal flasher for the turn signal problem. This is usually the culprit and it's easiest and cheapest to replace. The turn signal flasher will be found under the driver side dash next to the hazard flasher. Turn the hazard flasher one to locate it. If you want try swapping the turn signal flasher with the hazard flasher to see if this fixes it. They are the same style flasher.
If this doesn't work you may a faulty turn signal switch or some wiring issues.
B). It could as simple as the head lights bulbs need to be replaced, it's rare but I have seen when both bulbs blew at or near the same time. If your able check the voltage at the head sockets.
C). Could be a bad blower motor or switch. I'm not sure if these models have a resistor block or not. The resister block controls the electrical current going to blower motor which controls the speed of the blower fan.

the flasher is under the dash on the drivers side that is definitely a possibility but it also could be a multifunction switch

SOURCE: 1997 dodge avenger turn signal probs and location

replace the turn signal switch it self, mine did the same thing with the left turn signal, put in fuse and it will continue to flash... went to junk yard pulled one out of a 97 avenger just like mine, swapped them out and now it works fine. looked to be like some corrosion... to repace: 3 screws under columb, 2 screws on side of signal switch (black plastic side). unplug and replace

No - headlight ok.
The reason that the Right turn signal blinks fast is that there is half the normal load (resistance)
on the right side, since the Right front turn signal isn't working.
Since you replaced the Right front turn signal bulb, your problem lies in the bulb socket or
the wiring to the socket.
(1) try cleaning out the socket - there's probably a contact problem in the socket. You
may need to squeeze the contacts together to provide good contact to the socket contact.
(2) if contacts inside the socket are ok, try back-probing the socket - to make sure that the
socket is getting 12V DC to light the bulb. Replacing a bulb socket is easy, and commonly done.
Any auto parts dtore should be able to sell you a new socket - its just a matter of cutting out the
old one, and then splicing in the new one. Most shops will use small wire nuts, buried under several
wraps of E-tape (electrical tape).
(3) if bulb AND socket ok, you have the worst problem known to man - a wiring fault. In this case,
you'll want to run a new wire from the flasher module (under the dashboard) to the turn signal.

Turn signal flashes fast but bulbs good


First place to check is for a bad wire connection in the hitch plug as it may be shorting out on another wire.

1995 Dodge Dakota signal light and brake lights quit


I had the same problem that the brake light / turn signal on the right side didn't work (in the 2006 Dodge Caravan it's the same bulb). After a long search I found the problem: There was corrosion on the contact of the bulb assembly. After scraping off the corrosion everything works now.

Bypass head light switch and see what you get. Three items can cause your problem . The head light switch, flasher relay , shorts in circuit. I would go with switch.

Right indicator light blinks at doulde the speed


Bad bulb. When a turn signal bulb blows the other bulb on the same side will blink twice as fast since there is only half the load on the circuit. If the engine light came on at the same time the bulb blew then it probably meant that the computer notice the drop in resistance in the circuit and came on to let you know something is wrong. Change the bulb and have the engine code scanned/cleared. Autozone will scan and clear the code for free, except in Ca.

Cannot find where to adjust headlights on 2005 Grand Caravan, don't know how to replace the bulbs either


Not sure of the adjustments but should have 2 screws for each headlight. One to adjust up / down and one to adjust left right. They screws should be along 2 sides but could be top / bottom and left / right.

The bulbs will be accessible from inside the engine compartment. Download the users manual (if you do not have the hard copy that came with the vehicle) and on Page 416, it will show you how to change the bulbs.

Usually that fast blink is a good warning that one of the signals is out. Double checked that bulb is same # and all that ? What number is on the bulb? if it's 2057 or 3057, try pulling wires on side of bulb with fingernail, outward to make better contact, to see if that helps.
