Having problems with your 2002 Dodge Intrepid ?
My daughter's 2002 Dodge Intrepid has what I think is an unusual problem; sometimes when she cranks her car, the air bag light comes on, goes out after about 3-5 seconds, and then comes back on again, and stays on, while at the same time, the a/c-heater fan switch will not operate, the power windows will not operate, and finally the turn signals will not work. All of this occurs at the same time. At other times she will crank the car and all of these things, along with everything else works fine
You may have inadvertently identified the cause. With the electrical ground being the only apparent item common to all the problems, it's possible that the vehicle is experiencing an intermittent short in the engine grounding system. Check the engine ground cable(s) for tightness and clean connection, and try adding an extra cable - from just about any bolt head to the firewall or a fender well. This simple addition clears up MANY of the really weird problems thrown at us by late model vehicles.
