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.

problem #3

Aug 102005

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 91,000 miles


1) events leading up to failure: Each time this has occurred after or during a summer vacation trip that included 700+ miles. Use of the ac usually continues on low fan speeds (1 or 2). 2) failure and consequences: First failure would be the power windows would begin not to work. Second a relay fuse would go bad. Then the switch that controls the fan speeds would short out only allowing for high fan speed only. 3)have not be able to fix the switches due to dealer charging high rates just to look for the electrical failure with no guarantee they would be able to find the fault and still wanting $70+/hour before any repair work is started. We have owned a 1996 Caravan and 2001 gr Caravan and this problem has happened on both vehicles.
