2002 Dodge Caravan ProblemsStalling or Low Engine Idle Speed Due to Dirty Throttle Body
A dirty throttle body may cause low engine idle speed or frequent stalling, as oily residue blocks air flow in the throttle when the throttle is closed. Throttle body cleaning may be necessary to correct this condition. Our technicians caution against spraying cleaner directly onto the throttle body as this may damage the throttle position sensor (TPS).
Coolant leaks coming from the underbody on vehicles equipped with rear heat/AC are common. The underbody hoses should be inspected as part of regular maintenance. If you drive on roads where salt is prevalent the problem is generally more severe. Some 2005 models are involved in a special service action, no government recall was issued.
A failing head lamp switch can cause the head lamps and/or instrument cluster lighting to flicker or dim. The head lamp switch should have a noticeable click between each position; a "mushy" feel is a strong indication of a failing switch.
