If you turn the key and everything shuts off, the tarter won't turn. replace the ignition switch. Security only shuts down the engine, not the lights. Just a note, since you said interior lights, I would check grounds first. You didn't specify dome or dash lights.

Try this to reset the system

Insert the ignition key into the driver side door lock.

  • Turn the key counterclockwise to unlock the door.

  • Turn the key clockwise to initiate the alarm activation sequence.

  • Turn the key counterclockwise. The alarm will stop and reset itself.

    Van wont start .checked alternator. fuses and brand new battery still wont start. van started acting u when fuse to rad fan went out. engine light came on but since we live in cold area never heated up....


    I think you're over your head here. Take it to a professional mechanic and let her sort it out. Sounds like your alternator isn't putting out the correct voltage.

    Interior lights on a 1994 Dodge Caravan will not turn off when engine is turned off which drains the battery. Can they be disconnected and how?


    You can remove the fuse for the interior lights after you turn van off for a temporary fix.Thinkin there should be some kind of sensor/timer thats gone out,not allowing the lights to shut off after van is shut down and doors closed

    2004 Dodge Caravan won't start...just a clicking noise...


    Check the battery first. Just because the lights are on doesn't mean it has enough power to start the van. If you or the van has a volt meter, the battery should read at least 13-14 volts to be good. If the battery is good then the alternator is good and we move on to the starter solenoid. I'm sure it's one of these. Do the lights go off or very dim when you turn the key? If so then battery.

    2003 Dodge Caravan Battery?


    Sounds like time for new battery, give it a full charge & have it tested, but have alternator checked as well, even though it appears alternator is o.k. because it runs, but just in case it's an intermittent problem with alternator
