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.

I've seen a lot of problems with the electrical system on these vehicles and no one seems to have a concise fix which tells me Dodge isn't able to or willing to fix these problems.

problem #1

Grand Caravan SXT 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 72,000 miles

Turned key but only clicking sound. Then had it jump started.

Everything seemed to work inside but just wouldn't turn over.

After looking at so many complaints about electrical i am very sure that there is a defect in the way the wiring is being routed somewhere. This leads to shorts that can confuse computer and produce electrical issues.

wiring needs to be checked fully for loose cables which is a pain. It should only be in one place but once found it should be ok.

the reason folks undo battery cable is that it resets computer, but once the loose cable somwhere shorts, it again confuses teh computer. Depending on where the short is...the computer will act accordingly.
