There is clearly some serious knowledge here.
I have an 01 caravan. The battery is tapping out to nothing within a half day. Checked with an ammeter; instrument panel is drawing 1.3A. Disconnected the fuse, van starts like a champ. Anything I can do short of replacing panel? I have access to some electronic techs at work. One more, please: if I have to replace the IP, will I lose the true mileage reading?
