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.

1997 Dodge Grand Caravan Owner Comments

problem #1

Grand Caravan 3.3L

  • Automatic transmission

I have a 1997 Dodge Grand Caravan which has a very dangerous problem; while driving down the road the instrument panel and speedometer all die. It only seems to happen at night. Another problem it has is that the light switch is finiky, you have to play with it for a while before is turns on and stays on, what a pain in the neck.

Has anyone else had this problem? I had a mechanic tell us that the van is too old to fix since it has rust. How is it fixed?

If enough of these vans have had this issue then they should have been recalled and fixed by Dodge/Chrysler.
