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 own a 2005 Dodge Caravan. Not every time, but on a regular basis, the headlights will not come on. And sometimes when driving at night, the lights will go off. Very scary. This has happened numerous times. I have been told that nothing can be done unless it happens when the mechanic has it. This is a very annoying and dangerous feature on a vehicle.

I own a 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan which I bought used in 2005. The headlights have been going off intermittently since aprox. 4 months after I bought it. The dealers shop said they couldn't find anything wrong. The issue is very random with problem not occurring for 2-3 months at a time, then multiple times, then won't occur again for a couple of weeks. If I turn the light switch off when I park, sometimes the parking lights won't turn off or will randomly come on. Two nights ago, the light switch was completely off and the headlights briefly came back on before shutting off. There is nothing that seems to trigger the problem. To resolve it while driving, I have to turn the light switch on and off several times before the lights will come back on. This has happened numerous times while I've been driving at night. I contacted the customer service at Dodge they recommended I take it in when the problem is occurring- unfortunately, it doesn't happen all the time and I only know of it happening at night and they're closed. It's becoming more of an issue since I have 2 teenaged children that drive it with my 2 yr old in the car. I researched the issue online and there are numerous other people with the same problem. This vehicle needs to be recalled.

While driving at night, headlights go off. Sometimes will come on after a few seconds and sometimes after turning switch off and on. Sometimes the lights do not come back on until the car is shut off and restarted. This is not safe when you are traveling 55 mph with or without other cars on the road.

The headlights on our 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan have gone out. We've replaced the headlights and they still won't come on. We looked it up on the internet and their are hundreds of people having the same problem. We called the dealer and they said they have not heard of the issue. But this site shows there are plenty of people having the same issue.
