Hitting the dashboard was not the answer, I tried. LOL Thank you to
damnnickname for you help. It worked! To those of you who have this
problem in the future, its an easy fix, if that is the same problem I
had with my Caravan. You must remove the lower panel below the
steering column, then on the right, just in front of your knee, should
be a metal box with two wire groups, one with a blue plug in and the
other clear/translucent green plug in. You must unplug those two ends
and wait a few minutes and replug them in. It worked for me, its call
a BCM aka Body Control Module.....Thanks again for eveyones help.

helping me!!! Saved me from spending any more time in the doghouse! Got the
fuel pump assy replaced a few weeks back to. Dang van has had so little work
done to it with 211K on the clock!!!
Like I said, Im glad it worked for you, if you ever have a question drop me
I have a question regarding my new Magnum. I have heard there is an
"event recorder" in the vehicle, similar to a black box on an
airplane. True? If so, is it a separate module, or it is built in to
the powertrain controller?
I can't find a public list anywhere, but here's a typical writeup:
"Today an estimated 30 million cars contain these 'black boxes' - they're
actually silver - known as event data recorders (EDRs). Most record simple
data such as whether airbags deployed or if passengers wore seatbelts. But
most cars from General Motors and Ford, as well as some Toyotas and
Hondas, track even more information, including vehicle and engine speed,
and whether the driver was accelerating or braking.
Knowledge may be power, but communications is the key
I know Volvo's have had them for at least two year's. I worked for them
briefly, and in an accident in Montreal it cleared the company from a faulty
vehicle lawsuit, as it should the driver was driving in excess of 140 km's
an hour, and only applied the brakes two seconds before impact. the driver
killed someone in another car, and the driver was blaming Volvo.
