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.

problem #3

Caravan SXT

  • Automatic transmission
  • 55,923 miles


My lights won't turn on most days. We resorted to hitting the fuse box to start them. Unfortunately, this became more and more difficult (and we had to hit it harder and harder) until the lights stopped working altogether. Dodge tried fixing it once by saying it was the fuse box module, but that was not the answer. This seems to be a common complaint, but there doesn't seem to be a solid answer. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Caravan 3.3L

  • Automatic transmission

Dealer mechanics tell me that the only fix for this is a new fuse panel and that it is a common complaint with this model. A new panel cost $500.00 canadian plus labor and taxes. This is a major safety issue since it can't be determined when the problems will take place and chrysler should do a recall on this item to do a permanent repair since apparently this item breaks down in approximately 50,000 - 65,000 miles. I've inquired at auto salvage dealers who have informed me that this is an item that they practically flie out the door and they have difficulty keeping the panel in stock. This can get to be quite costly it is constantly breaking down.

Caravan SE 3.3L

  • Automatic transmission

We had the van in with intermittent headlamp dysfunction. On a daily basis we had to wonder if we would be able to drive at night. I took the vehicle in for which they diagnosed a faulty module. It was replaced, but the lights/wipers only functioned for another 2 weeks. It was replaced again with similar results. The mechanics guess is that it may be the main computer module.
