20 Most Recent 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan Questions & Answers


Hi, I also have a Dodge Grand Caravan 2008 with similar problems. The windshield wipers would come on for no reason, A/C would cut off and not come back on, none of the controls would work from the drivers side door panel, "dinging" noise would come on intermittent, headlights would flash like they had a mind of their own, dashboard would light up erracticly, etc.
After much searching on the internet, this seems to be not so uncommon. I brought it in to the dodge dealer where I purchased the vehicle and about $300 and 3 hours later the tech FINALLY found the problem! Most of the wiring from the door panel back to the body are "stranded" wires. These wires are made to be bent, time and time again, as the drivers door is the most used. But there is a control module that is also located inside the drivers door and it uses a "twisted pair" of really small gauge SOLID wire (that goes back to the onboard computer). If any of you out there have ever used Ethernet wire you know exactly what I am talking about. These are the same wires down to the color coding! Guess what happens when you bend a very small diameter wire over and over and over again? One of the small wires broke inside the rubber boot between the door and body. The tech told me what he found and spliced the wires with a 50 cent connector. The guy was honest and "kudos" to Salsbury Dodge in Baton Rouge. In my opinion this should have been covered under the warranty because it was clearly a defect in material and WORKMANSHIP (not to mention just a really DUMB idea from the designers at Dodge). This $300 fix lasted about 1 1/2 years and the problem came back. This time I fixed it myself with a new connector and a multimeter. Put the leads of the meter on both ends of the suspect wire and check for continuity. You will find that one of the twisted pair will have a break inside the insulation. Cut out the break and splice with an inline connector and wrap with a small amount of electrical tape. For my car the break was inside the rubber boot. If you are not comfortable with taking your door apart, bring it to an honest mechanic and he should have you in and out in about 3 hours (and hopefully a LOT less than 300 bucks). Hopes this helps.

For the front blower motor, there isn't an individual relay. Note the diagram. The two wires at blower motor, one should be voltage and the other ground. The totally integrated power module is also involved. Any applicable trouble codes? I can' say that replacing the blower module will fix the problem?

If you're not familiar with removing parts inside a car then you probably shouldn't try it. Maybe go to a radio installer and see if they can give you some tips. It sounds like you're going to have to go to someplace to have it fixed or replaced anyhow.

Usually a bad wheel speed sensor. But when warning lights come on, there are always trouble codes stored in the computer. Get the codes read and then you'll know where to start your diagnosis.

What's up ? could be any number of thing's . Bad module ,instrument cluster , wiring , loose connection etc.... Looking at a wiring diagram to see what ,if anything all these componets share . Power or ground circuits . All these thing's are controlled by a BCM - body control module ,or TIPM - totally integrate power module .You have no idea the complexity of these systems . Your best bet mite be to take it to a qualified repair shop. Hooking up a factory or a professional type scan tool an checking for codes would be a good first step in the diagnostic process .

check for a faulty starter relay but I suspect that the problem is in the ignition switch where the contacts inside the switch are not making contact
if the ignition is on and the starter is cranking the engine and the run contacts are making contact it will fire and run
check harness connections under the dash
