A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

The contact owns a 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan. While driving approximately 45 mph, the traction control sensor light suddenly illuminated and the vehicle would not respond when the accelerator pedal was depressed. After turning the vehicle off and restarting the engine, the vehicle resumed normal operation. The contact also indicated that the vehicle was taken to the dealer and the recall remedy for NHTSA campaign number: 14V373000 (electrical systems) was performed to replace the ignition switch. After replacing the switch, several electrical systems in the vehicle suddenly shut off, including the door locks, power windows, power brakes, and power steering. While examining the vehicle, it was determined that the electrical systems would shut off but the engine would continue to operate if the ignition key was rotated slightly too far. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 95,501.

My wife started our van and it didn't start. She got it started and went a few miles down the road. After stopping at a stop sign she took off and was going approximately 35 mph when the vehicle abruptly stalled. She lost power steering and was able to get it stopped before going into the ditch. Had she been traveling faster she probably would have wrecked. She had my two year old with her and is currently 13 weeks pregnant.....updated 11/02/15 updated 1/4/2016

Grand Caravan

  • 43,000 miles
In the most serious of many no-start incidents, our van failed to start in 107 degree temperatures with our three small children in the car. We were stranded at a remote rest area, with nowhere to take refuge from the dangerous heat. After 18 attempts the engine finally started and we completed our trip to reno Nevada, driving in remote areas amid deadly heat fearing our van would fail to restart if stopped. In the prior week while in fl, the van had a new battery installed at our gator Chrysler, in a repair advised to solve no start incidents we had in fl. The van also underwent an inspection, with no problems reported to us. We scheduled a panicked dealer service visit while still in route, at a reno Dodge on July 1st 2013. The dealership technicians retained the van to diagnose the no-start for 2 full days. They noted no malfunction and could not reproduce the problem. The van has since developed intermittent failures of several electronic systems, including stalling when placed in reverse, failing to shift into 2nd gear after sitting overnight, no power to the instrument cluster or no power to the console controls. The van at the time of purchase in December of 2011 had previously been "repaired" in the recall for its win module. Additionally a PCM reflash 68050411af had been performed. Our van continues to have no-start incidents and transmission fails to shift into 2nd gear, no fixes. Both reno area Chrysler dealerships have looked at our van and noted no failures. Despite being "repaired" under recall the ignition module continues to malfunction. With a fob inserted the module shows excess sloppiness in the clockwise direction. The key fob has been stuck in the ignition on several occasions, and the engine has continued running after removal of the key. These malfunctions have potential to become dangerous in certain situations.
