Need Advice for Dodge Computer-Module Repair
Other than Dodge dealerships, how common are repair shops for fixing computer - sensor modules on a 2000 Dodge Caravan? I ask because Dodge dealerships are becoming scarce and far in between. My local mechanic referred me to a dealership about 10 miles away and I suspect that he just doesn't want me to go to a close competitor which might steal my business from him. I live in a suburb of Chicago (Cicero).
I bought a used 2000 Dodge Caravan. Intermittently the front panel gages fail with periods of day or weeks in between. The computer error codes are P1695 and P1698 which apparently means no messages received from BCM, PCM. I don't think it is a bad connection because disconnecting and reconnecting the battery usually makes the panel gages work for a few seconds.
