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.

My door stopped opening and hasn't opened since April first. Checked the battery and fuses, and it still does not open.

The passenger side sliding door will not unlock using the key or the driver or passenger door's electric unlock button. The manual button on the door also will not unlock the door. I have not be able to open the door for over a month. I have seen suggestions on the web of taking out and then put back the iod fuse, but that did not work.

Manual sliding doors on both sides do not work. This must be a defect. I was told the problem is with the hinges and rollers. The auto repair shop wants to charge $615 to fix each door!!

problem #1

Driver side door does not open or shut completely. It only opens 6 to 8 inches and closes until about 6 to 8 inches. The latching mechanism sometime does not work at all or repeatedly tries to auto latch itself. This occurs every time we try to use the auto door feature. It appears that some wires have been severed, but the cost to repair at dealership is outrageous. I am afraid that the door will not properly close, leading to injury or death of my passengers. You can view many websites that have lots of people complaining about his exact same thing: autoforum.classifieds1000.com/Dodge-grand_caravan/2005_dodge_gc_sliding_door_problem.
