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.

During park rear passenger door would not open from the inside manually and electronically, someone from the outside has to open the door. The unlock mechanism is up but the door button from the inside would not push down, therefore not allowing the van door to open. This is big safety problem, no one can get out manually and electronically from the inside. Took it to Dodge and they claim it's the wire, but it's not because the wire in great condition, because it's been replace and still having the same problem. It's not motor because once in a blue moon it would open partially, but it would closed automatically immediately. I have file numerous complaints to Dodge but nothing was done. I believe it's electronic problem, which has to do with ECM (electronic control modular). Please contact Dodge Grand Caravan to diligently check into this safety issue. Thank you.

1st occurrence: While driving on freeway on a hot day the car stalled without warning. On attempted restarts car would fire for a couple of seconds and quit. Tried other key: No help. After about 7 or 8 attempts the car would not crank and solenoid clicked. Towed home. Car set codes P0339 and P0344(intermittent crank and cam sensor). Charged battery. Replaced both sensors car initially would not start, then mysteriously fired up and ran fine. Ok for about a month. Battery tested ok charging voltage good when running. Not related to having just (over)filled gas tank. (much on internet about this: Bad valve in tank allows evap to flood) 2nd occurrence. Once again driving on highway hot day. Once again stalled without warning. Same symptoms on attempted restart. After waiting about 15 minutes, car restarted, ran about 4 miles and stalled again. Attempted four or five restarts, then battery appeared to run down. Headlights would dim on start attempt. After a while the car started again but ran roughly on acceleration. Once again set same codes. At this point I noticed some electrical anomalies. Upon key on, the temp, fuel, and tach gauges would peg high and then fall back to normal. The power windows began to operate without the key on. Tow truck arrived and got it home. Car restarted in garage. Replaced both sensors again and battery (suspected intermittent open). 3rd occurrence on test drive got about 5 miles and onto highway. Once again stalled. This time restarted, turned around and got about 2 miles then quit again. This time no restart( same 2-3 seconds). This time set code P0344 only(cam sensor intermittent). Car restarted later back in shop. Research on the internet has got me thinking about the tipm (totally integrated power module)

Vehicle stalls intermittently while driving shortly after filling up with fuel. Vehicle continues to stall periodically without any known consistency. During the stall, the engine cuts out and the steering wheel locks up. This has occurred several times in the parking lot after filling up and while entering the roadway after filling up. This a very dangerous and serious concern for when a loss of power occurs on the roadway serious and potentially fatal accidents may occur.

2007 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT stow N go having several electrical issues. 1. passenger power sliding door failed, replaced power door motor, lock actuator, and repaired wiring as the wires actually break/snap overtime. Poor design. 2. less than two years later passenger power sliding door has failed again, & power locks will not work, & I can open passenger sliding door after locking vehicle with key fob and alarm won't sound! cannot get my children in and out of this door without reaching in and pulling up the lever from inside (too stiff, my daughter isn't strong enough). This is a safety issue and researching it online shows that it is widespread. 3. power seat motor has failed. We have stow N go seating. In order to stow the 2nd row seat you must move front seat to full forward position, then move driver seat back......driver seat is all the way back now (for my spouse) and I cannot move it forward. Gears are broken. I cannot reach the pedals and my seventh seat is stowed! I cannot get my seat back. 4. on passenger side a part below dashboard (I think is related to heating and cooling) fell off. My floor is now wet even after reattaching it. 5. light galore! my vehicle rotates between check engine, and service tire system warnings. I've had it checked by several mechanics and all say it's electrical.

The interior in the front of the vehicle went out. When I took it out to replace it, and it was melted on one side. That happened to me with the other side of the front interior lights, around 2011 and when I went to the dealership I was told I would have to buy the whole assembly at a cost of about $150 I think. I asked then if there had been a recall on this and was told no. I asked what would cause the light to melt and he said he did not know. I left it as I still had the one on the drivers side but now I do not have either and there isn't any light in the front of the car when opening the drivers or front passenger door. Please advise me if this has been a problem and or what can I do about it.

Vehicle shut off while driving on interstate at 48mph and increasing. First all dials dropped to 0, brakes would not work, when pressing accelerator engine would rev up but no power - then this stopped also. Turned key to off position and waited a few minutes, then turned car back on and all seemed well. This was very scary with cars & trucks whipping by at 50 plus mph!

The power locks have quit working on the rear sliding doors where my children sit. No way to unlock doors from outside to remove children in case of accident. The doors will not open from the inside unless manually pulled up. This is a very very common problem with Dodge. Only one manual key hole to unlock van on drivers door. This is very dangerous for passengers especially children.

The contact owns a 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan. The contact attempted to start the ignition three times and the engine immediately stalled. The vehicle was towed to an authorized dealer for diagnosis. The vehicle continued to remain at the dealer for further investigation where the contact was awaiting a diagnosis of the failure. The manufacturer was also notified of the problem. In addition, the wiring to the dome light was faulty which caused the dome light to melt two years prior to the most recent failure. The manufacturer had not been notified. The approximate failure mileage was 50,000.....updated 08-24-12 the consumer stated when the vehicle's engine turned off the instrument cluster remained illuminated. The radio switches stations, turns on the cd player, and switches between am/fm. The dealership acknowledged there is an electrical problem but, cannot find the problem. Updated 08/30/2012

Airbag warning light came on and took it to the dealer. The dealer stated that the front impact sensors went bad because the wire harness corroded and caused the open circuit, causing the airbag warning light to come on causing damage to the components.

I turned the ignition on, put the car in reverse and backed out of a parking space. I pushed on the brakes and put the car in drive. The car began moving forward for about 10 seconds and then it lost all power with no warning, just stalled. The car's heat sensor gauge was normal just below halfway and I had a half tank of gas. There were no warning lights on the dashboard prior to the incident. It didn't feel like the brakes were working either. I put the car in park and then started it up again with no problems. It drove to my destination without any further problems.
