Just by changing the tire size is not going to cause all the dash lights to start freaking out as you describe. You have another issue going on there all together, what that may be it is very hard to tell without it giving any codes. You may have to take it in and have a diagnostic check ran on it.

Could be your battery going. Check the terminal connections, they may be loose.
Also, check the fuse panel in the driver's footwell. I had water in mine once, and it caused my dash lights to go crazy, my alarm was going off, lights were flashing and it wouldn't start.

Definetely not the tires
Agreed check battery connections or otherwise may be a problem with your CTM

We just had the same problem with are D..It ended up being the ABS Module sorted out...It also made the a/c so the fan wouldn't shut off when you turned the key off, so if you forgot to turn the a/c off before we got out the battery would be dead next time we drove it..Also almost every light on the dash was on like a Christmas tree...

Makes you wonder if all of these computer modules were made right here in the US if they would fail as often.. Seems to be a low standard and lack of workmanship as well as pride in cheap foreign labor. I guess that is for another thread all together. :gr_patrio

Definitely something going on, but could that "crazy little red light" be the security light? Generally, insofar as my own 2005 Durango goes, this light will flash rapidly for approximately 15 seconds when the vehicle theft alarm is arming. The light will flash at a slower speed continuously after the alarm is set.

yeah thats the securtiy light but but now it has stoped i tried to place an ob2 code reader up to it and nothing would register it would not even connect to it but i did notice that she had a bunch of mud and dirt build up on the wheels so maybe im thinking mud in the sensors fubar'n it but as for now no lights or bells ???

I also would have guessed the security system since the little red light did flash and she didn't start.

Your standard OBII reader won't link. You need one specifically for CAN BUS vehicles. :(
