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.

1999 Dodge Caravan Owner Comments

problem #2

Aug 012009

Caravan 3.0L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 190,000 miles


My 99 Dodge Caravan would die if idling, stopped at light, and die and self restart automatically (in 1 or 2 seconds) if it occurred while driving. I replaced my ECM which took approx $250 and 1 Hour for self installation. The company i dealt with is out of Florida, and provided a reliable refurbished one to me. You provide your VIN, and Mileage, and a few other details to them. They ship to you, and you return the old one in the box they sent you. Very easy to deal with.

Caravan 3.3L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,000 miles

My 1999 Dodge Caravan 3.3L starts right up but it has now started stalling when I turn the wheel either direction. It doesn't matter if it's in park, drive, or reverse, it stalls. Seems if I keep my foot on the gas pedal when I put it into gear it will stay running but as soon as I turn the wheel & let off gas it stalls. Any ideas what the problem is here? I cant even make it out of my driveway & honestly too afraid to try.
