I own a 99 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport model with power everything, mileage 99500. Two months ago the battery light came on and the transmission jumped to low gear while driving at highway speed. I limped the vehicle to the shoulder and shut it down. When I tried to restart the van, the battery was dead. Took the van to a trusted transmission guy and he told me the problem was electrical, that when the alternator is shot it can cause this problem. Fine, I tested and replaced both the battery and alternator and everything was fine. Three days ago the battery light came on again. This time the car ran fine and when I shut it off and restarted it the battery light was off. Now the light comes on within a few minutes of driving. Any help would be graetly appreciated.
