    Default 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan dash light stays on

    I have a 2001 Dodge Caravan SE 3.3 Litre. Just a few hours ago I
    noticed a dash light staying on....its called a malfunction indicator
    light and the symbol looks like an engine. It is situated beside the
    turn indicator light on the right side of the dash above the main
    cluster. I read on the internet that the "code" for the problem could
    be found by switching the key off and on several times, which I did,
    and found the code to be P0205. That apparently translates to
    "injector circuit malfunction"....A neighbour said that COULD
    mean a bad plug wire.
    Does anyone reading this have any experience with such an issue and is
    there any way to more exactly pinpoint what P0205 relates to?
    Any advice would be appreciated.

    I think it's unlikely that code would translate to a faulty plug wire. More
    likely a wire to one of your injectors has failed open-circuit - or the
    injector itself has failed - or the ECU has bitten the dust.

    Is the engine running rough (loping or misfiring?)

    You mention nothing about the way the engine is running. With a fault code
    like that you would get a noticeable drivability condition. No it would not
    be related to a plug or plug wire. Possible #5 injector, Pcm or wiring
    issues. A diag test with a DVOM will be needed to diagnose this problem.

    Take it to a shop that has the shop manuals with wiring diagrams. You will
    probably pay an hr to check it out and that should be a very easy test to do
    in order to find the problem. Since you know the problem is with the #5
    injector all you do is check for 12 volts coming from the ASD and a ground
    going to the PCM.If the vehicle still falls within the 7/70 federal emission
    the labor and PCM would be free to you. (assuming the dealer did the repair)

    Hello again...I was on my way this morning to a service centre when
    the light went out and stayed out. I guess i'll play it by ear for a
    day or so and see iif it stays out (I HOPE)!

    I have a 2001 Dodge Grand Caravan Sport with a 3.3L and have a similar
    problem. The difference is mine is code p0202, which is injector
    circuit malfunction #2. It runs rough.
    My question is this, can I disconnect the wiring from each injector to
    see if it changes the idle. If I find one that does not change the
    idle, and I test it with a noid light to make sure it getting the
    proper signals, does this mean the injector needs replaced?

    I also have other codes that come up P0122, P0123, and P1478. Any
    help would be greatly appreciated.
