Having problems with your 2001 Dodge Caravan ?

1998 Dodge Grand Caravan problems.........

\015 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan. Whenever the ABS warning light comes on, there seems to be some sort of short that causes the rest of the instrument panel to die. No illumination, no gages working. When the ABS warning light goes back off, the instrument panel works again. Any suggestions? \015\012Also, Ieft my interior lights on one night and my battery went dead. I was able to drive it a short distance after getting a jump, and the Airbag light kept coming on. After I got a new battery, my Airbag light came on and won't go off. \015\012My check engine light continues to come on periodically, and stay on for a couple of weeks at a time. I have done oil changes when I should, but this continues to happen. Can you help me?\015\012Thanks in advance,\015\012Laura\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 14-01-2019

Answers :

1st problem: Does this happen after you have been driving after a while because you might have a short that occurs when the engine and the brake/tires gets warm causing more electricity than need to flow to the ABS button on the instrument panel and making it go into auto shutdown so it will not catch fire. You will need to get both the ABS and the short checked by a mechanic and to get them fixed.
\015\0122nd problem: Do you have an option that gives you the ability to turn the airbags on and off. If so, try turning it off, Letting your car sit overnight, and turn it back on (if you had it on in the first place or if you want it on) and see if that works. If that does not work, or you do not have that option, you should be able to get the code to be reset by the mechanic when you get the other problem checked.
\015\0123rd problem: When you take it to the shop to get the other problems checked, they can find out what is the matter with your engine and tell you. If possible, you could get it fixed while you are there.
When ABS warning light comes on the instrument panel die.
Sure can be caused by a short, but the most likely is that the main computer module, that is connected to ABS and to the instrument panel is faulty, and probably must be replaced.
Go to the nearest garage , and have a scan test done on your car computer module.
