Having problems with your 2002 Dodge Caravan ?

2002 Dodge Caravan 3.3 liter 6, 36,000 original miles..Car runs fine, but headlights and E-flashers just started blinking on & off, alternately, like a police car would do. Kept on, no change, even with ignition off. removing a relay called "RG HEADLAMP WASHER RELAY", which was clicking, stopped the E-flashers but the head lights kept right on blinking until I disconnected the Battery to save its charge. Headlight switch may or may not be bad, can't tell. Battery is 3 years old (Jan '08). C

Sounds like you have a security problem, (antitheft) , when it acts up take the key and put it in the outside door lock switch with the door shut and window down and lock and unlock the drivers door with the key,it should quit, if not try locking and unlocking car with key fob(remote lock,unlock switch on key chain), if that dont work , you have further prob. with security system and take it to a shop. if it quits with the key process and then comes back on , the sensitivity might be to high. does the horn go off with the lights?

Charging system The 2005 Montego that we have is not charging correctly. The battery is new, but the battery keeps going dead. We charged it up and started the car and when I disconnected the battery the car ran for a couple of minutes and then died. I am assuming that it is the alternator, but the system check says that the charging system is okay. I want to save some money, but I may have to take it to the shop. Any suggestions.

My 1993 Toyota Tercel does not start when key is turned. New battery, all fuses checked and fine. When the doors get opened, hazard lights start blinking for 15 blinks, then pause, then 15 blinks. This continues until doors are closed. A friend discovered a green Toyota starter relay under the dash directly underneath the glove compartment that you can feel clicking when you touch it when the 15 beats of hazard lights goes on. Any ideas if this may be my problem? Maybe just replacing the start


Hello! I believe your Tercel Is equipped with Theft Deterrent which is faulty..The starter relay is being pulsed by the Slave Relay (SLRY) or alarm relay...Check the connector on the rear of the green starter relay...It has four pins...Wire col ... Toyota Tercel

I'm getting an intermitent code P1389 on my 2002 Dodge Dakota Manul Transmition 3.9 engine. the truck was running great when I shut it down. When I went to start it back up it would turn over but not start. I erased the code with my OBD II tester and still wouldn't start. I disconnected the Neg battery term. and tried to start 10 times. I reconnected the battery term and then started right up and run great. This has happened several times now and the reader says it's the ASD relay low voltage.

When I went to crank my 2003 Toyota Tundra a few days ago, the Hazards were blinking without the hazard switch turned on. I went and checked the fuse and exchange it with an identical one but no luck. I then disconnected the battery for a few minute. When reconnected it, the right blinker is now continuously blinking. Any ideas what could be causing this?


If the bulbs and fuses all check ok then I would suspect a faulty hazard switch. The hazard switch also controls the "flashing" of both the turn signals and the hazard lights. Try turning on and off the hazard switch a few times to see if you c ... Toyota Tundra

I have a 1990 F-150 with a straight 6, 300 engine. The fuel pump continues to run with the ignition position on off. The only way I could get it to turn off is to disconnect the battery cable from the battery. I have read that it may be the the fuel pump relay, some say fuel pump. Any ideas?


Hello HK.I have seen this happen quite a few times back when I worked at Ford.The fuel pump relay contact is sticking.You will find it on the front left top fender under the hood. There is a black housing that houses two relays. The ... 2004 Ford F150

Our 1998 Volvo V70 doesn't start in the morning when it's cold (usually below 40 degrees). Once it's jumped it starts right away and will start again that day (unless it sits for 10-12 hours on a really cold day. I've been looking online and asking around and had my mechanic check it out. Possible answers I've heard - replace fuel pump relay, may need a bigger battery (we replaced the battery a year and a half ago). Any suggestions?

My turn signals stopped working suddenly on my 1992 ford probe lx. Prior right side was blinking faster. Changed signal switch next to steering column changed turn sinal/hazzard flasher by the clutch pedal. Little green box 2 in 1. Is there another flasher anywhere or a relay?

If this is not working on the right side and is OK on the left side then one of the indicator lamps on the right side has blown out. The reduced load on the right hand indicators causes the flasher can to flash faster.Try turning on the hazard sw ... 1992 Ford Probe

I have an 2002 olds alero and I need to know how to change the flasher relay,more to point how do I get to it to change it. I've been told it's right behind the steering column ,but how do I access that area. I would take it to a dealer ,but alas they want an arm and a leg for a two pronged plug in relay. If you can help that would save me a bundle. Pictures would be nice if you have them.

The switches were notoriously bad on these. Replace the switch, and your issues should go away. When you get them, go to someplace that sells aftermarket ones rather than the dealer, like rockauto.com or related. The aftermarket has solved the pro ... 2004 Chevrolet Colorado

My 6 disc DVD changer will not eject, nor play. The lights blink back and forth from the 3 left lights to the 3 right lights, whether the van is on or off. I disconnected the battery to reset it, but to no avail. If I need to replace it, how do I best remove it? Thanks.

I have a Crime Guard alarm in my old '98 Honda Odyssey, I want to disconnect/completely disable it. Even though it is disabled by the button under the dash it still is going off and disabling the ignition system. (I can hear the relay under the dash clicking away when I try to reenable the car). Right now the battery is disconnected because the alarm went off and won't shut off with the remote or the underdash button, and the ignition is disabled.


Just pull the one under the hood at first. The vehicle should not be running when you do this. Glad I could Help. ... 1997 Honda Odyssey

How Do I Reset A Mercury Villager/Nisan Quest Minivan 1997 Anti-theft Feature? I've locked and unlocked the vehicle several times, but it doesn't reset. That is, the ignition and steering column remain locked. I disconnected the battery thinking that would disable the anti-theft mechanism, but it has not. The alarm has not sounded. But when I open the door, the small red LED light for "Security" (in the same panel as the hazards--to the right of the steering wheel) blinks on and off.
