Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Caravan LX 3.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 180,000 miles

The doors lock themselves continually while vehicle is sitting parked and unattended. I have been told that this problem is possibly caused by the Body Control Module, which cost around $ 200.00 for just the part. Rather expensive to spend on a guess but there seems to be no way to test it.
