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 6-cyl

  • 10,822 miles


The check engine light has been going on and off randomly since the car was 3 months old. Purchased new. Told by a dealer in reno and a dealer in las vegas that it was nothing, they could not find a problem. Now after replacing the air conditioner condenser, and a new engine the whole body control module is going crazy. The whole panel goes on and off - ABS light, engine check light, air bag light, etc, the speedometer gauges etc--sometimes they work other times they shut down. This is dangerous not knowing your correct speed or if there is a problem with the automobile. Both automatic sliding doors quit a year ago and the lock on the passenger slider door quit working.

I pulled into the gas station and filled up the fuel tank. Tried to start the Dodge Grand Caravan and it didn't even try to start. I just put in a new battery before the trip, so I had plenty of electrical power, it was acting like it would if you left it in the drive position. Put it in neutral, same effect, back into park, no luck. Pushed it out of the gas pump area, tried again, no spark. I had to have it towed to the service station.

The two overhead map lights stopped working. Upon investigation it appears that each light bulb and holder were severely scorched at the electrical contact. The plastic was melted and was black in color, indicating possible arcing. Further investigation showed that the main housing was melted enough to deform the plastic, further evidence of potentially a small fire or electrical arcing. Dealer refused to fix or replace damaged housing without a charge. I left the bulbs out, as I do not feel safe with my wife and grand daughter in the vehicle that could catch fire. I have searched online and found many incidents similar to mine, yet not recalls are found for this unsafe condition.

I drive a 2007 Dodge Caravan. The passenger side window motor has gone out. We have called around for a replacement and have fount out that these years are very well known for this problem. My van only has 8,797 miles on it. Why has there never been a recall.. all vans of this make and model have had to have there motors replaced.. my mom was looking at one and they dealer told her the motors have been replaced. So now I have to spend $200 to get a entire replacement part. [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
