2001 Dodge Caravan is all wonky after getting a boost. Won't shift out of 1st, power windows, heater fan, radio, wont work


Asked by Jun 28, 2019 at 04:09 PM about the 2001 Dodge Caravan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I hadn't driven my van, Beastie, for a month, (hubby was off work so we
were just using his truck). I went to drive it a couple days ago, and the
battery was dead...well...it just went clickclickclickclick when i tried starting it.
So I got the guy from the service station in town to come give me a boost,
fired right up. Now, none of the windows will open (well the passenger side
never did before, but thats another issue, lol), the heater fan won't work, the
radio doesnt work. Also...I can't get it to shift out of 1st, the speedometer
looks like it has spun all the way around, so it is stuck on the little stopper pin
thingy at 0 kph, and all the lights for what gear it is in, are lit up, so I am
guessing that I am in drive, lol. However...the digital odometer is working, as
well as the gas gauge and the temperature gauge. The power light for the
heater comes on, but the fan won't come on.
Any help would be appreciated. We tried disconnecting the battery, both
cables and left them off overnight, and that didnt work.
