05 Gr. Caravan blinking dash lights and sometimes brake & abs lights come on and off

I have this wierd problem. Blinking dash lights, radio goes off, brake light and abs light come on and go off in 3 seconds ... and then everything is ok for a little while. Vehicle wants to stall but never did so far. Battery checks good, alternator checks good. All ground cleaned and greased up with dielectric grease. It is wors when it's raining or it is just wet. Cluster test shows no codes ... goes through just fine. Sometimes when I turn it off, I hear a beep every some 10 seconds for about 4 to 5 minutes and then it's gone.

Sounds like a bad PCM in there somewhere. We just traded in an '08 SE with the same issue. As it was in the shop, I traded it for an '08 SXT!

'92 Ramcharger - 318 Magnum, 35" M/T's - 4 1/2" lift - 4.56 gears, and a continual work in progress!

I've read posts recently about a ground stud that was either corroded or the nut was loose creating similar problems. It's the G303 ground at the base of the drivers side "B" pillar. That's near the drivers seatbelt anchor.

The IPM (fuse box) has had a history of corrosion problems on 4th generation vans. Check the connections for corrosion and security. Could be on the internal circuit board. Try wiggling connections to induce/correct the problem.
