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.

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • 86,200 miles
When this incident occurred, I was driving 20 mph in a school zone and my daughter was in the van with me. All the electrical instrumentation suddenly turned off. The van continued to move forward, but the turn signals, dash instrument panel, windows, locks, etc. All failed to work. I thought a fuse had blown or something. I pulled off the road and parked, but the van would only turn part way off. The motor stopped running, but the key indicated that the motor was still on. The key would not turn counter clockwise, or "off" past the "on" designation marked on the ignition. The key would not release/come out of the ignition. Since I could not get the key out of the ignition, I tried to start the van. It would not start. My husband came out and tried to jump start it, thinking it might be a problem with the battery. This was unsuccessful. I had called a local mechanic from the car, and with his help my husband was able to get the van started. He drove it to the mechanic's shop. The mechanic looked at the "codes" and said it looked like it was under recall. He was able to get the key to release and my husband drove the van to the local Dodge dealership. The dealership told him that our van was part of an ignition recall and that Dodge would have the parts replaced. We have been waiting more than two weeks now, and still the dealer says the parts are not available. I am afraid to drive the van. I Transport my children and children in a carpool. I cannot risk their safety, and I have no car to drive to work. The first week without the van, I borrowed a car. I was on vacation for the next week. I believed Dodge would have the parts to fix my van in those two weeks. Dodge has still not fixed my van. If these problems cause a wreck, will the airbags even deploy? it is appalling that Dodge expects me to drive my family around in an unsafe vehicle.

Grand Caravan

  • 71,000 miles
On multiple occasions the electronic ignition switch has failed to operate. The switch fails to start the engine and the switch will not rotate to the off position (will not turn beyond acc. Position). This is a family van used for many short trips, including starts and stops. Unexpectedly being unable to start the engine, and being unable to turn the vehicle off, remove the key, or lock the vehicle is a serious security issue and a hazard in some situations. A quick look at the internet shows that this is a common problem.

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • 84,000 miles
While driving vehicle in a residential area at 20 mph the vehicle shut off (engine stopped running, lost power steering, lost power brakes and im guessing the air bags). Immediately checked the ignition and observed the key to be securely in the "on" position (it did not move to the accessory position). Was able to immediately restart vehicle. Took vehicle to Dodge dealership and they did not find any problem with the ignition. There were no error codes in the vehicle computer. Dealership suggested removing all extra keys/key rings...so did so. Approximately 2 weeks later, with only the car key securely in the ignition (no key rings, etc) again while driving in a residential area at 20 mph the vehicle shut off (engine stopped running, lost power steering, lost power brakes and im guessing the air bags) and almost ran a stop sign. Immediately checked the ignition and observed the key to be securely in the "on" position (it did not move to the accessory position). This recurring issue is going to result in a death. Dodge needs to address this issue immediately.

Last May 7, 2014, I received a safety recall from Chrysler, I visited the dealer and was told that they didn't have the part, and as soon as they will receive it they will let me know. Time pass by and I received a second safety recall, at that time I needed to take my car to the dealer to be repair and asked for the part, they did not have it yet. They disable the rear quarter vent windows to avoid problems. They asked me to call parts dept. To find out when they will have the famous part. Is been 8 months and nothing is been solved. How long do I have to wait" is that part so difficult to find"
