battery replacement-1998 Plymouth Voyager

I replaced the battery in my wife's 1998 Plymouth Voyager van. All is ok,but the on/off switches for the a/c,cabin recirculation,rear window wiper,and rear window intermittent wiper have amber LED's in them that are flashing. They want me to do something but I don't know what!? What is the series of keystrokes to correct this? Thanks. LC1

The flashing lights are prompting you to do a calibration/cooldown test. I hope I get this right from memory. First you need to let the car run until it is at normal temperature. Then press and hold the rear wiper and washer buttons at the same time for about 5 secs (all the lights will then illuminate). After that test is done do the same thing by pressing and holding the a/c and recirc buttons for about 5 secs.

As long as you dont have any problems when each test is complete you should get alternately flashing lights on the two buttons you pushed to start the test. Once you are complete just turn the key off and back on to reset everything.

If my memory fails me then post back that it didnt work and I will get the correct procedure tomorrow when I get to work.

Hope this helps.

battery replacement-continued

Thanks for the info,Johnny! I'll try it when she gets home from work.
i negleted to mention that this is the 3rd battery in 6 years. Found a TSB from Nov '97 regarding premature battery failure for this model. It referred to a RKE transmitter? What's that and how does it affect battery life. Thanks again. LC1.
