Having problems with your 2000 Dodge Caravan ?
I replaced my battery and when I put the cables back on the "Auto Shutdown Relay" clicked. The clicking sounded louder with the key in the ignition and continued after the key was removed. Only disconnecting the battery stops the click (which starts again when the key is turned).
I had to replace a broken terminal. When I read the instructions in the box it said to reconnect the terminal connected to the solenoid first. I'm guessing this is the positive (red), which is also connected to this r
Sounds like your back to the battery and it's installation. One , Is the battery fully charged and good. The ASD relay will click if it's explosed to low voltage. You didn't say why you had to replace the battery but as the old battery was going bad it'll wreack a ASD relay as it's tring to run the whole system without enough voltage to hold it closed. Could just need a new one but. The battery cables being good and clean and the connection of the grond wire to both the fender and the engine need to be checked. It sounds like the connection to the fender or firewall of the grond is'nt good. Receck all the battery cables and you'll likly find a problem. Many times peaple try to put in the wrong battery cause the store didn't sell the right one or they did'nt have the right one and sold a universal or a battery That'll work ( yeath right) So you have to streach the battery cables or even unbolt the fender connection on the cable to make it long enough to reach. This point that the cable is bolted down is important and has to be there.
