Don't pay over $100 for a mechanic to tell you what check engine means.
Press and hold the trip and reset button, turn key until you hear the
beeping (run position), continue to hold the buttons for 5 seconds and
"code" will appear on the odometer. Let go and watch the light show. Note
any diagnostic codes. Once it's done, remove the key.
Some autoparts stores (like mine - AdvancedAuto) allow u to borrow their
car diagnostic computer (ODB2 OBDII) that can read codes and reset them
free. Also a shout-out to http://forum.chryslerminivan.net/ that site has
lots of useful info on T&C's and other chrysler minivans.
Dodge Caravan (01-03) Instrument Panel light replacement (How To)
A common issue with the Dodge Caravan (and Chrysler Town & Country?) is the
instrument panel lights going out. This makes it almost impossible to see
your fuel gauge or speedometer during night driving.
In this video I show how I was able to replace those lights with
replacement parts for less than $20. The process takes around a half hour.
I am not a mechanic or a professional, I'm just looking to assist others

I say "Uh" a lot and I'm sorry for that.... I actually deleted out about
30% of them!
My replacement LEDs were purchased from www.superbrightleds.com
