2009 Dodge Grand Caravan has absolutely no power

Asked by Jun 25, 2013 at 08:46 PM about the 2009 Dodge Grand Caravan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We went to start the van - after driving it normally a couple hours before - and there is no
power. Power locks do not work, car does not turn over, the key turns but nothing
happens. Any ideas what might be the problem?

Your problem usually indicates a dead battery. Start there.

sounds like the battery has gone dead this being the case would get your ecu checked as the charging circuit is in built into it you may have to run a bypass to get the battery to charge. had the same problem had to replace the alternator and battery and run the bypass on the 3.3 version

Thanks, everyone - turns out it was the alternator not keeping the battery going. Luckily a friend fixed it just for parts cost. Such a new car - unusual for the alternator to go out that fast?

Not unusual, parts can fail at any time.
