Customer Question
I have a 2002...

I have a 2002 dodge caravan 3.3 litre. Speedometer reads 15 while stopped. I replaced the speed sensor. Problem still there.

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the sensor have a wire-wrapped magnet? If so, have you checked it with an ohmmeter?

I had it replaced at pepboys. Didn't see a thing they did.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Caravan yourself? What have you tried so far?

The engine, ecu were replaced last month but the problem was there before and after. Work done at an ASME shop. I would like to fix it myself but don't have a way of getting under the van

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Can't think of anything

It sounds like the instrument cluster has failed. Next thing to do would have scantool connected and see if scantool shows vehicle speed at 15mph if not replace the cluster. You can get a used cluster on ebay or www.car-parts.com and replace yourself just make sure the mileage from cluster is about the same. My goal is to provide 5 star service so please let me know if you have questions, thanks.

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
