1998 Plymouth Voyager 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 101000 miles
I have a 1998 Plymouth Voyager. It initially had a BCM problem (lights would randomly turn on/off while ignition was off). We took it to the dealer and they had to replace the BCM 5 times. Each time we would get the car back it would have something else quirky with it. (Lights would not turn off with iginition off, wipers would not turn off, gauges would not work) We have finally got a BCM that seems to work. There is one minor quirk though and I want to make sure it is the BCM this time. The car seems to run fine while driving but when Idle it seems that it is losing electrical power. The digital readout for the mileage and gear indicator (P-D-N-R) start to dim and the fans for the ac noticbly drop to a lower RPM, the radio will lose power and then come back on. Once the car accellerates and goes back to cruising speed all the problems go away. We have replaced the battery and the Alternator and the dealer is telling us that the BCM is not at fault and there is an electrical problem with the van. Before paying 90/hr for someone to troubleshoot I figured I would ask for some expert advice here at 2carpros. Thanks for any information you can provide.
have the same problem?
