geez that is the worst advice ever!
disconnecting and reconnecting the bat is just plain dumb since there are active circuits and computers active that might get damaged if you do that.
Take it to the dealer and see what the code is! you might have a serious issue and your charger is just telling you that it needs to be checked!
the battery thing might work, but you are better off going to a dealer
My engine light lately has been going on and off.. I get to about 1/2 tank of fuel.. Light comes on.. fill the tank.. light goes off.. Been doing that for about a week now..
I would do the key jiggle and get the CEL code your self. If its a serious code than take to the dealer, This works?
I've done hundreds of these and its always been fixed with just the update. Thats weird. Its possible you have a bad switch but like i said i've done lots through the bcm update and all were fine. Besides if the switch were bad it would be done for good.
BCM is body control module which runs all interior accesories and wipers.
To everyone, not just jarpod:
ONce again, not being mean to you jarpod, but i've told hundreds of times on this forum that the battery cable pulling is dumb and has zapped many modules i've seen. Especially dont want to pull that cable within an hour of driving the vehicle as almost 20 modules are still running and anyone that knows electronics knows if you pull the ground the ground circuit has to be supressed somehow. Electricity doesnt just stop flowing when the cable is pulled it has to rest somewhere. Please quit pulling cables everyone thinking its the magic fix for everything. The car is not a program of windows where unplugging things makes it go away. Ok i'm done
The dtc pulling above wont acess bcm codes, only pcm codes and communications codes. I dont believe i 've ever gotten a body code from the evic.
Back to the switch thing. IF you want to get into pulling the door panel and diaging this issue i can walk you through it but you'll need a dvom, and you'll have to pull the door panel. The door panel on caravans have *****y clips that like to break and if you have a town and country you dont want to pull the panel if you dont have to that gets into a whole other bag of worms.
Here is my next idea in lieu of the bcm replacement. The bcm is located above where your left foot would sit while driving down the road. Get to this where you can see it. Get the door locks to screw up, then smack the pudding out of the bcm , if this gets them working again you have a bad contactor switch internal to the bcm and you will need to replace.
