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.

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.

Just bought a 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan and realized the front reading lights were not working. I took of the plastic covers in an attempt to change them and observed that the bulb had completely melted the plastic and burnt part of the casing. It appears as though the plastic housing was very close to, or had already, caught on fire. I am worried that if we put a new light bulb in the same housing it will likely catch the whole van on fire. The safety of my family being paramount, I do not feel safe doing so. After reviewing this problem online, I found numerous other Grand Caravan owners claiming to have had the same problem. This issue needs to be fixed before someone gets hurt, or even worse, killed.

The headlights intermittently shutoff or will not turn on while driving. I have replaced the bulbs, checked for a loose connections, and checked the fuses many times. This is okay during the day, however I live out in the country 15 minutes from the nearest town. I cannot drive at night without headlights or with the possibility that they will shutoff while driving. This is extremely dangerous. I have been lucky so far that nothing serious has happened but this is a problem that must be fixed! my wife and 7 month old child use this vehicle the most and I can't fathom the idea of them being injured due to this problem. Others have suggested a faulty headlight switch. I have not had the time to take the vehicle in to the dealership to have it inspected.

problem #1

Sep 132007

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 2,500 miles
The contact owns a 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan. From September of 2007 until may of 2008, the vehicle was taken to the dealer three times for transmission failure. While attempting to accelerate from a red light, the transmission feels as if it will drop to the ground when shifting from first to second gear. On May 14, 2008, the transmission was finally repaired under warranty. The vehicle was taken to the dealer for inspection because paint was peeling from the rear passenger side quarter panel. The dealer stated that tar adhered to the paint; therefore, they washed the quarter panel and scraped off the paint. When the vehicle and headlights are turned off, the instrument panel lights, fog lights, and headlights would remain illuminated, even though the switch was in the off position. While the vehicle was parked, the exterior lights would illuminate automatically, which drained the battery. The dealer stated that the headlamp switch shorted out. The vehicle was repaired, but the failure recurred. The contact stated that the switch on the panel to shut the vehicle doors did not work for two days. It has begun to work again, but the contact believes it is only a matter of time before the switch fails again. The current mileage was 7,000 and failure mileage was 2,500. Updated 07/10/08. Updated
