2000 Dodge Caravan Q&A
2000 Dodge Caravan Question: when spliceing a wireing harness together should you conect the extra wires?
when i spliced my wireing harness together with the one i got from the junk yard there were som extra wires that did not match up so i conected them together or should i just have left them taped everything works right except the passenger turn signal wont blink in front does in back fast ant the blower switch only works on high for ac/heat - jolink1
TURN LAMP PROBLEM: pull the lamp out and check for proper power and ground if all is there replace bulb. if no way to test replace bulb first. if no power you will need to verify the color codes are right between the two vans chances are they are correct but verify. BLOWER PROBLEM: how much of the harness did you have to replace and did it go to the blower resistor. If it does not go to the resister (which is on the passenger side just to the inside of the strut tower on the firewall)replace the resistor assembly. could have been damaged by vibration from tire blowing. HARNESS QUESTION: keep all wires seperated from each other use shrink tubing (you can use a lighter to seal it) instead of electrical tape.....water intrusion causes corrosion and that will kill an electrical system. hope this helps Bret - bsipla
Never splice. You may end up with many more problems. If the harness came out of an exact model and year, and trim level, the harness should be an exact fit. You should not have "Extra wires." Why did you decide to splice a harness? - Diagnostechs Mobile Service
the only help i can give you is first get a haynes manual for that car in the back will have all the wiring diagrams but it might be just a bulb in that turn signal - wildbill1070
