    I was attempting to replace the tensioner on my 1999 Dodge Grand Caravan Se 3.3L, and forgot to disconnect the battery. :( After moving the alternator I saw a few sparks fly from the battery itself. Everything is back together and the car starts, and it all seems fine, but the battery light is...

If and when it gets over 90 degrees, she starts to freak out, when I say freak out, I mean hazard lights flash, door locks open and close, horn starts honking. While I was driving. Yesterday, the temperature went...

  10. Is my failed instrument cluster likely its soldier joints or the BCM?

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    Hi, newbie here and glad to find such an active forum! My cluster is out, and the main other symptom is no front windshield wipers. Do these two together implicate the body control module, or is it more likely bad joints behind the panel? (like this video) :

    I have a 2007 T&C LX V6 3.3 that seems to be having electrical issues on acceleration. I recently replaced the battery two weeks ago. Last week, this electrical issue showed up (see below), so I had the dealership fix it. They replaced a bad connection on the IOD fuse. This seems to not fix the...

    I've now read through about 18 pages of the threads and not seen what just took place last night. I have a'97 T & C that just passed 200k miles and I apparently made the mistake of boasting about that a bit. Now all heck broke loose at one time. I've had a brake squealer acting up now for...
