      1. Check the wiper central timer module, it has the wiper park switch sense and the wiper on / off relay.

      2.The multi-function switch is connected to the signal lamps through the joint connector # 1 ( power distribution center ). Check this connection pins to see if there are any contamination. A contamination pin could stop the current flow. Use a piece of sand paper or a tiny file to clean it.

      These gas springs are manufactured by Stabilus, in the US (Gastonia, NC). Try the company website; for more information.
      You may also contact the manufacturer / distributor of the tonneau cover - they may have spare parts available as well.

      Fairly simple task - check the 'How-To-Guides' feature on the AutoMD website for the steps to remove the inner door panel and to replace the window switch.

      Check the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.autopartswarehouse,, or for the replacement parts. For example, they (Rock Auto) list the window switch from around $26.00 (Dorman part # 901450) for your vehicle.

      This would be the rear tailgate and tailgate handle - if you are referring to the exterior handle.

      Check the many on-line auto parts sources, such as; www.autopartswarehouse,, or for the replacement parts. For example, they (RockAuto) list the Dorman part # 79000 tailgate handle from around $32.00 for your vehicle.

    The interior lights and door locks go off and on continually for no reason.
    Mileage 40,000. No service person can find a reason. Sometimes it happens and sometimes it does not. VERY annoying as the clicking of the door locks and the lights blink off and on. This has been going on for over a year and the problem cannot be found. Taken to 2 ...

      Your cause is most likely a bad Driver Door Ajar Switch. You need to use a smarter tech to diagnose your vehicle. Your Caravan has an option that if enabled causes your doors to lock after the vehicle reaches a few miles per hour. If there is a door opened and then closed (which a faulty door ajar switch would imitate) while the vehicle is in motion the computer will relock the doors. This would appear as the door locks cycling and the interior lamps cycling as well.

      I also think that if the door-lock catch needs adjusting the door maybe shaking while driving and triggering the switch, which would cause the same symptoms as if the switch was bad.

      Maybe the relay is bad if you by-passed it and the horn worked.Or check for faulty connections on the relay.

    After washing my car on Saturday, Sunday morning there was 2 inches of water sitting on the floor behind the drivers sea
    took it to my mechanic and they cannot find where it is leaking from. The windows were rolled up, so that would be your first question. I cleaned the water up and it appeared again in the back about 1.5 inches. What could be the problem? Thank you in advance for ...

      Windshield, windows ? Have an assistant or you to stay inside the car while it is washing. detect it and repair the leaks.

      Is it only behind the driver's seat and not infront? I had a new car once and it was leaking when the rain came through the bulk-head somewhere under the dash.Never did find out for sure after taking back to the dealer 5 times I just traded it in.Some times a leak will develop if the metal rusts away where the water passes through the area under the wipers or the windshield rubber is bad.If it's only in the back thats a tricky one, but you could check the rubber seal around the rear door.

      My friend tried that site and they kept his money and did not answer his question, did not give him refund either, so be careful with that site likeplum because it seems that they may be a bit shady

      Did the regulator also include a motor because it sounds like that is what was needed.

      Check the door actuators under the dash see if they are functioning.I have a 2001 Dodge Ram and my dash control failed some years ago.The doors and the hotwater valve are controlled by air running through little tubes which operate the actuators.Look behind the glove-box and see if any push-rods have some how become disconnected.The movement of the vehicle would cause it to move from hot to cold on its own.Check the a/c ground for loosness in case it's cutting off and loose wires on the a/c cut off switches as well .
