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 who have this issue. 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

How To Find and Repair AC Leaks - EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at: http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ How To Recharge an AC System: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lglPJuBXVeE Basics of AC: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w17DpGCcRj8 AC Performance Test: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XU_A4wNuHXI I suppose this has been a long time coming but for me I wanted to make sure that I made a video that would be useful to you as well as emphasized the importance of good practices when working with AC. Keep in mind refrigerant is a CFC meaning that it pretty much kills the ozone layer and if you don't respect that you WILL cause environmental damage even a little adds up so please follow the precautions in this video when working on an AC system. The other thing about AC is that it involves a lot more than just shooting a can of refrigerant into the system when it's not working right there are many systems that come into play that you need to consider such as; the health of the cooling system, cooling fan operation, the mechanical operation of the components of the system, the operation of the HVAC inside the dash, and the electronics so keep in mind if you're having a problem with your AC it could be much more than just a simple leak.

1998 Chrysler Town & Country Instrument Cluster Test Sequence
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.

Replace Blower Resistor for 2000 Chrysler Town and Country
After all the speeds of my fan for the heater and a/c blower quit working except for only on high, I was surprised to find out that I could fix it with only an $11 part from my local car part store. The hardest part was just finding where the blower motor resistor pack went. I believe it is the same on a Dodge Caravan type mini-van as well.

TOWN & COUNTRY POWER DOOR WON'T OPEN WITH REMOTE
The power sliding door stops halfway when opening or wouldn't open at all. In my case, this was due to a broken wire(cable?). After locating the broken wire, I was able to joint it , making the door work again. This whole problem could be caused by the many openings and closings of the door. The wire harness that powers the door is housed by a chain. This chain is moved by the door every time the door moves. When the door opens, it straightens the chain with the wire harness in it. When the door closes, it bends the chain with the wire harness in it and the cycle repeats over and over when you open and close the door.
