They changed it and today they called me saying that the radio doesnt work either so it will be another $2000 more!!!!! I really dont know what to do.... It seems to be something that happens with a lot ... Read More
"Chrysler, the automaker that invented the minivan, is about to kill off the second of its three minivan brands. Automotive News reports that the Grand Caravan has been dropped from Dodge's model lineup beginning in 2015. That will leave the Chrysler Town & Country as the only entry in this once widely-popular segment (the Plymouth/Chrysler Voyager died in 2003) and the only minivan made by an American manufacturer. Minivan sales that ... Read More
My 2000 Dodge Caravan SE Short Sport has the Infinity sound system with 10 speakers in it. Recently the lift gate was replaced and there are no speakers in the new one. I could have sworn there were speakers in it prior to replacement but I can't seem to find any information to back that. One would think counting the speakers would be an easy solution, however there are 2 places ... Read More
Drucemeister, I know this is a 3-yr. old post but I am so glad I found it. Have been having the intermittent activation of the anti-theft system and loss of the instrument cluster lights on my wife's 98 Grand Caravan. Very, very frustrating as we've been stranded a number of times. Banging the top of the instrument cluster works....for now. I can't wait to take the instrument cluster apart this weekend...as ...

Just a note to say THANK YOU! I have had this problem intermittently for months, with all the grief and expense that go along with it. I also read dozens of forum posts here and there without finding the pertinent details for my exact problem. All of that ended yesterday. Thank you so much for making the effort to share this information!!! Regards, Scott
I am looking for a used minivan as my 2000 Chrysler T&C has this annoying habit of dying at random times while I'm driving. Have spent way too much time and money trying to fix that problem and time to move on. I know my budget is under $15,000 and my biggest issues are space and safety. I have to be able to get inside to buckle three or four kids ... Read More
On the 11/07/11 i attended NAG (Nepean Auto Group) for an intermittent fault with my 1999 Chrysler Voyager’s warning lights and ignition system. This fault caused the car to start and cut out moments later, or the instrument cluster would fail while driving and not start the next time. The remedy that i had been using prior to taking to NAG was to disconnect the battery for 1+ hours and the ... Read More
I am desperately trying to find the location of the camshaft position sensor. Could ya help me on on this one? 3.0 liter motor, thanks.
When this happened to me a few times, it was the camshaft position sensor that was the problem. Just another tho't to add to the mix. ;o)
If you look beside your battery, there is a plastic retanglar box with a removeable top cover that pops off, under that cover on the backside of the piece there is a diagram of each fuse and relay listed. the starter relay should be on the driver side of relays, beside the a/c relay, it is best to pull it out and use the a/c relay in it's place, same as ...

Hello Everybody - I have an electrical problem with my grand caravan. It began a few days when I came out from a store it would not start. When I turned the key the dash lights came on, but when I turned it to start I heard like a dull "thunk" from somewhere and the dash lights went out and there was no click or anything. It seems to me like ... Read More

1998 Dodge Caravan Sport. Purchased used in September of 2008 from a dealer. They had just done a flush of the tranny. Since then, I have had it flushed twice to keep the fluid fresh.

2000 Dodge Grand Caravan ES Hi, My Dodge Caravan ES driver side slider door won't open at all, it seems stuck in place. I have tried really hard to open it and need answers. Can you help me?
I have this similar problem with 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan 104,000 miles. It stalls when coming to a stop - most times in the spot but it occurs more frequently in colder weather. I've already had the mapping sensor replaced, spark plugs/wires, crank sensor, and a valve cleaned out. It never throws a code either...its in the shop again trying to figure it out.
Amen to that. We had our 1999 Voyager for about 3 years when it first started losing belts and it wasn't until I threatened to call the local TV station did the dealer offer to put the large washer (??) on the tensioner pulley which did the trick for me for quite a while. But then we had a problem with the belt squealling like crazy any time there was even ... Read More
The Gates or Goodyear kit should do it. It's been least 3 years since I installed it and haven't had any problems. I don't know if replacement belts are readily available but and may be a good idea to have one handy, I feel fairly secure now and have taken several of town trips without any problems, rain or shine. Quite difference from several years ago when I was replacing them ... Read More
Why is it after replacing a new belt and new tensioner, the belt comes off in the rain, snow and going through puddles? I wasted money on these and they are less than a year old and I have to replace them with a kit containing the same thing except they are grooved? It came off on my wife over a dozen times. No power steering (no control), no water pump ... Read More
Agreed. Also, the 2000 van shares the same body style with the model years 1996 through 1999, so it is entirely reasonable that the doors are interchangeable.
Try an auto wreckers. The Caravan is a popular vehicle. You should be able to find a replacement door quite easily for your model and year. Good luck.
I have a DODGE CARAVAN 2000 BASE MODEL. The front passenger side and back slider doors have rusted and the mechanic says that it is cheaper to replace the doors than to do any body work on them. My question is: will the doors of a earlier base model (1997-1999) fit the van I have? some say they won't and some say they will...... I am confused! I'd appreciate your replies. ... Read More

I have a 2000 Chrysler Voyager and had the same problem: it was running perfect when I parked the car, but when I restarted it it an hour or so later, I cranked it, it ran for a couple of seconds and then stopped. I could never get it going again and it left me clueless for what was wrong with it for the 1st time in years. The Dutch AAA ... Read More
I am trying to find out where to find the front windshield wiper motor location. Wipers stopped working and no fuses blown and relays are fine, next is motor and switch. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!
Okay, thanks. I am getting normal operation in the instrument cluster, plus no fuel, spark, or injector activity, so this is likely a differently caused situation. I do have the intermittent instrument cluster malfunction, though, so figured it may be worth a shot. I am very fed up and very disappointed with my van. I guess it was bound to happen sooner or later; after all, it is a Chrysler.
it would crank, run for just a bit and stop. Basically crank and sputter to a stop. NOT at all like the fuel was not there. I cannot remember if I checked for fuel at the rail. I usually do that first, though. The fuel gauge was intermittant at best (it is only marginally better now), I think the gauges would either be zero, or would go full sweep. I don't ... Read More
What was the manifestation of the no-start? Would it crank and crank, with no firing of the engine? Or, would it fail to crank at all? Any other symptoms that you recall, such as no activation of the fuel pump, etc?
My buddy had a '97 that would fail to start form time to time. After MANY times looking for a problem that would never shoe itself while I could look at the car, (it always started when I saw it), We found that the instrument panel has both input and output. Some of the solder joints were cracked and caused the intermittent trouble. It would actually start, run for just a ... Read More
Hello I have this same problem with my Dodge Grand Caravan 2000. 3.8L AWD. When it's cold outside below 15deg Celcius and car is not used for more than 8 hours, I must long wait for warming up the engine or put gear on quickly as I can just after engine start.

Have similar problem a few years ago - cutting out when suddenly (non-gradually) release gas pedal. Starts OK after that, cuts off in next stop/turn. 1. cleaned throttle where air comes in - helped a little 2. checked EGR valve, it could stuck open: disconnect the vac. tube from it (put something on the end of the tube to prevent vacuum leak). It will pollute, but if it stabilized then EGR ... Read More
Yes, the van starts right up again with no problem other than it gets pretty hairy in mid-turn trying to shift into neutral and crank the engine all the while trying to turn the steering wheel without power. I sprayed the throttlebody last night with trottle cleaner which seems to have helped, but it's too soon to tell for sure. I like your idea and will also try cleaning the MAS. ... Read More
Does the van start right up again without any problems? It may be the MAS (Mass Airflow Sensor) that is causing the issue. I had a very similar problem with a Subaru Outback many years ago, where it would randomly stall (typically approaching or leaving an intersection). No CEL, no other symptoms. I wasted several hundred dollars on "diagnostics" with no success when one mechanic suggested it might be the MAS. ... Read More

I think you really need to know how your going to use your minivan before choosing what to buy. Do you ever carry up to eight people? Honda would be a goood choice here. Will it just be used primarily as a people mover? Honda, Toyota, Hyundai, or most any of the others would fill the bill quite nicely. How long you want to keep it is another factor. Toyota and ...

Shippo, being under warrenty and probably not hurting anything is really not the point, i have owned a 96 a 98 a 2000 and all shifted smooth accept for minor bump shift on the 96, my 2007 shifts like a teenager with a learners permit trying to drive a stick shift for the first time. this is not the same old bump shift thing it is much moore anoying :(
originally thought it was a pulley or waterpump or even a/c because it always gets more pronounced when the a/c compressor comes on. Removed belt and noise is still there. totally goes away with a little rpm (2000, or so)
I have a 2000 dodge grand-caravan with 101,000 miles on it. A mechanic of mine suggested I use 5-30 weight of oil in the engine. If he is correct than what brand, type (such as conventional, synthetic blend or synthetic) and weight. Anybody out there with any input on this matter I would greatly appreciate it very much.
Hi, I am replacing the engine in my 1999 dodge caravan ( 3.0 l).

Most people who buy one DC minivan will NOT like any other brand In my case I have to strongly disagree! I owned a 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan and I could not wait to get rid of it! I just bought a 2006 Odyssey EXL RES and I LOVE it! I could never say that about my caravan. It was never in the running this time and probably never again!
My mothers Caravan is having the same problems! The car will be sitting shut off out side and when someone walks up the windshield wipers will be on and it runs the battery down.

Sounds like she got a good deal. Discount and rebate of $2930+$4750=$7680. In comparison, I just bought Grand Caravan SE with some options, MSRP was $26640 and discount+rebate was $2434+$4750=$7184.

Maybe you should see what's wrong with it. There are none selling close to that around here and maybe you should go to Edmunds used cars and look up what a used 2005 Dodge GC is worth with 15,000 miles on it.

We have a 2000 T&C and had a similar problem. Put in a gas additive (think it was a STP product) that was a fuel system cleaner and haven't had a problem since. Had a 94 Dodge Caravan that used to stall and used a gas additive to remedy that situation. Good luck, Norb
Check engine light on and occasionally the brake indicator light flickers. Dealer scanned OBD2 code P0755.

Adihead, I have the perfect vehicle for you. I'm the 2nd owner of this 1988 Dodge Grand Caravan with a 3.0 liter V-6 and 3-speed lock-up Automatic trans. Now before you poo-poo this van, it was originally from Arizona when I bought it from the 1st owners, with 115,000 miles.

Hi, we're in New Jersey and own a 2000 Dodge Caravan SE, it has 52,000 miles...in the past few months we've noticed a recurring problem...a strange sort of "creaking" feeling with some shaky rumblings, especially when coming to a stop, going over a speed bump, driving thru a dip in the road, etc. Wish I could be more specific!

My Dodge Caravan's auto trans will periodically shift from 3rd to overdrive several times in a row. Sometimes it feels as though I am driving over railroad tracks. AAmco checked and there were no bad codes coming from the computer.
The dodge dealer wants 4 hours to install a fuel sender. I think it`s a pretty easy job and I told them I would bring the vehicle in with very little fuel in the tank. It`s covered under warranty. I think I`m getting jerked around here.
We had a brake line burst on our 1999 Dodge Caravan. The brake lines were original equiptment on the vehicle. We had a brake job done with 31K miles and we now have 47K miles on the car. If you check your brake lines you will see that the solid line is made of steel and it is welded to a stainless steel flex segment. The welding of dissimilar metals can ... Read More
Hi Selena760- I am having the same problem with my 2000 Grand Caravan...It has happened twice and is currently in the "blinking light" mode you describe. The first time I called my dealer service department after checking owner's manual (nothing) and online Chrysler Customer Service (no references). Dealer service guy had never heard of this problem. After several minutes on hold, he said he didn't think there was any reset button ... Read More
