I have been unable to locate the interior fuse panel. The one under the hood doesn't have what i'm looking for. One of the power side doors is not working and I wanted to check the fuse but was unable to locate the panel. Can you tell me where it is located?
Do you
have the same problem?

Hello again, It looks like the sliding door is powered by the BCM which has its fuses under the hood, I found these diagrams for you, please get back to me so it will help others.

But if just one door is not working it is the fault of the door motor or switch not the power system.

1 20A Fog Lights
2 15A Left Park/Tail Light
3 15A Right Park/Tail Light
4 30A Front Wipers
5 20A RDO/IP Ignition
6 20A 12 Volt Out Ignition or Battery
8 20A Horn
9 40A Anti-Lock Brake System Pump
10 40A Front Blower Motor
11 20A EWD/Rear Wiper

Hey guys,
I have a Grand Caravan. My wife had been using the van and had parked between errands for about 30 minutes and came back out to find that the van would not start. I came home and began to review the situation. With the driver side door open and no keys in the ignition, Relay 13 in the under dash junction box was clicking constantly. Putting the keys in the ignition did not help. Once the key is turned to the start position, nothing happens. With the key set in the on position but not continuing to the start position first, the clicking continues and there are no dash lights, gauges, radio, HVAC CTRL, dome light, head lights, turn signals, horn, etc. The oil indicator is about the only dash light that is on when the key is in the on position ( it is dull like not enough power). The temp and fuel gauge seem to register for about a second with the key turned to the on position and then settle back to baseline. As analysis went on, the problem got worse. The relay started making more of a buzzing/whining noise. When I pulled it, two relays in the under hood PDC started clicking. They were the Low beam relay and park lamp relay. Pulling either one did not stop the other from chattering. Sometimes all three relays would be clicking. If I put the key to the start position and let it settle back to the run position, all clicking stops until I turn the key to the on or off position. If I press the brake pedal, all clicking stops. It starts immediately upon letting off the brake again. The interior light seems to be on sometimes but always dull. At one point (but only once) when I turned the key to the auxillary position (1/4 turn backward) everything internally seemed to get full power. The dome light came on bright, the radio and dash lit up, I heard the HVAC damper open, etc. Can anyone point me int he right direction to start fixing this?

It sounds like the battery is dead but to confirm the issue check out this guide

https://www.2carpros.com/articles/car-battery-load-test

According to the under dash junction box diagram I have, Relay 13 is for the Courtesy Lamp.

I'm just getting back to work on the vehicle so I'll check the battery and cables today.

Here is a guide and some diagrams I found for the fuse box (below)

Wow. You couldn't have written a better description of MY problem. I'll test the battery, the cables etc. Same relay #13, also, when I turn the key on or turn on a dome light the clicking stops. Really strange. This is an exact description of my problem. Battery and cables are fine. Could it be the ECM? This is an old thread, but some of us would like to drive our old vans.

Additional oddities, when the switch is off, no key in the ignition the relay is rattling. This rattle has slight changes in frequency. Turn the key to the "on" position and the gauges move up and down about 30 degrees in rhythm with the rattling.

I am having the same issue as well. The last relay on the right just above the fuses makes a fast clicking sound when the key is not in the ignition. If I just keep this relay out, will the van still operate fine with the exception of whatever it controls (courtesy lamp?)? Something just keeps draining the battery, and the battery and the alternator test OK. Has anyone gotten any resolution? Thanks for your help.

Hey All,

Here are the fuse panel locations and description layouts for you caravan.

I have also included the wiring diagrams to show you what all is connected to each fuse.

Check the condition of the battery cables and connections. Clean them if necessary. It also seems that you may have an open in the ignition switch, which explains the lack of cranking and no lights with the key in the "on" position.

Please let us know happens so it will help others.

Best, Ken

A good thing to check are the ground wires under the battery tray. There are 3 of them that share the same ground spot. Also check the ground wires at the block. On a 2000 town and country the connection is on the drivers side, right beside the bracket for the transmission dip stick. Clean those up giving them a good connections will help eliminate allot of inconsist problems. I did this and my battery stop draining. Along with a huge array of minor issues that will drive you crazy trying to find cause.

They are powered by fuses 5 and 6 in the underhood fuse box.

Electrical problem 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 100000 miles

radio and lighter does not work? Replace fuse and radio still didn t work. The lighter works and the time will come on and then goes off. Is another fuse that can cause problems or a relay or a fusible link?

Hello,

Look inside the integrated power module, under the hood. Fuse 5--20amp, also check that the fuse circuit is hot. The lid may have the fuse labels on it. RDO/IP IG

Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

Had battery tested, appeared to be bad, replaced battery, no change. Suspect the starter relay or fuse maybe causing the problem. Have not pulled starter to test yet. I need the fuse panel diagrams. Don't want to move to Alaska so car can stay cool, please help.

Hello

Here is a guide and the fuse panel diagram below.

https://www.2carpros.com/articles/how-to-check-a-car-fuse

What does it do when it wont start? Does it crank? or it does nothing? Try self diagnostic and post any codes it displays. turn ign off , hold trip reset button and turn key on. after five seconds remove key and continue to hold reset button for five seconds. after five seconds release button and self diagnosis will start.

2. After DTC display ends, instrument cluster will go into each of the following tests in order: dim test, calibration test, odometer segment test, and electronic transmission range indicator segment test. Go to DIM TEST

Check out the diagrams (Below). Please let us know if you need anything else to get the problem fixed.

So it does nothing correct? Did you try the self test? Check ASD relay in the integrated power module . Swap it for a known good relay. Power mod is on the left side of the engine bay. also can be crank sensor signal is lost. This is on the tranny bell housing, you need to remove shift cable to access it.

OK thats showing the software version, if it can be driven, get the codes read by a code reader, Autozone reads them for free. Post what they find, but a hit or miss might be the ECT.
