    Powertrain & Performance
    I have a scanner so I know the code is related to coolant temp and usually points to a Thermostat... but I'm new to Chrysler vehicles (other than a 2000 XJ Cherokee, I've owned nothing but GM) and just wanted to get some feedback before I guess. Bought the van last Saturday. It was 70 degrees...
  2. 2007 Grand Caravan Heater/Blend Door Question

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    My van has manual heating, driver and passenger zones, plus rear heat and AC. The drivers temperature control outputs unheated air as you move the slider from cool to hot. Once you reach the far right of the temperature control,it outputs full heat. Move the slider just a small amount to the...
  3. Random Hot and Cold Air Blowing 2004 T&C LX

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    My van blows hot and cold air. I do have a radiator leak and I am constantly adding fluid. The temperature gauge is at its normal position during this time (i.e. it is not low nor does it move). When the car is just warming up (temp gauge at COLD), it takes several minutes AFTER the gauge...
  4. Odometer gone, replaced by temp display - how to change it back??

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2020
    Went to a new shop for oil change (2008 Grand Caravan SE). The Change Oil nag had been active. After oil change, the Change Oil nag was gone, but so was the odometer! In the place where the odometer had been, it now displays the current outside temperature. Owner's manual says nothing about...
  5. 2002 3.3 van heats up slowly

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Its already cold in OH, and i've noticed that even in the mornings around 20 degree when I let it run for a few minutes, it takes a while to heat up. Even after driving for 10 minutes its still not at normal running temperature. I was wondering if anyone else has attempted to use different...
  6. 2001 Dodge Caravan temperature/coolanrt problem

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    I've been trying to chase down an overheating problem on my minivan (with 182,000 miles on it) for months now, working with my local Chrysler/Dodge dealership garage and on my own. Recently, the garage "gave up," so I guess I am on my own. The problem started during a camping trip to Vermont...
  7. climate control turns itself on

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Recently, every time we start our 02 grand caravan, the climate control (manual version) is powered on and the A/C button is illuminated. I only noticed because the van was started and idling and I heard the compressor kicking on. Since I noticed, it has done it nearly every start up for over a...
  8. 2002 T&C EX - trouble with driver side AC not blowing cold air

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Hi Everyone - new to the forum, hoping you can help me. Our minivan has developed an AC problem, seems related to the controls and not the AC system itself. We have the EX model where the driver and passenger have separate, slider temperature controls. When I have slid both of them to the far...
