2006 Dodge Grand Caravan Engine Temperature Light

Asked by Jun 22, 2015 at 06:54 PM about the 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

While driving my 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan the engine temperature gauge went up to
high, warning light came on, and the AC switched itself to recirculate.  After sitting in a
parking lot for about 1/2 an hour, checking belts and fans, I drove home with no issues.  
Tried driving with AC off, AC on, temperature gauge never moved off the middle.

I am experiencing same problem (but with following differences): -2005 Dodge Grand Caravan -Not related to AC being on or off -Apparently seems to be "triggered" when accelerating rapidly (e.g entering highway) -Do not have to wait so long (1/2 hour...) before restarting the car (and temperature guage going back to normal)


Not vehicle specific, but lower radiator hose collapsing can cause this symptom. The fix is just a new hose, especially one that contains a stainless steel coil to prevent collapse.
