I have a 2002 Caravan SE. Recently I have noticed that shortly after I
turn on the headlights I hear a single chime. I am not sure if this an
error that is caused by a self-test on the headlight system or not.
After hearing the chime I can turn the lights on and off as many times
as I want. The chime will not occur again until I turn off the
ignition and start it back up.
Is this an indicator of a more serious problem? No lights or other
indicators are visible on the console.
The Chime is sounding when the headlights are turned on. But it only
happens once. Once the van is started it doesn't matter how long it is
running, once I turn on the headlights I hear a Chime. However if I
turn them back off, and then on again... No chime. Whatever is
triggering this problem only happens once, until the van is turned off
this resets the problem and the next time I have the van running and
turn on the headlights it will make a chime.
If you have any idea of what might be causing the problem I would
greatly appreciate it. I have asked a local dealer's service
department. They didn't know and have not gotten back to me.
