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.

Similar to other reports; vehicle will randomly lose power and/or stall. It has happened at slow speeds, stopped at a light, and even on the highway going 70mph. Have to take key out of ignition, wait a few seconds and turn back on and car starts up. Also now having issues to turn on. Lights on dash will blink and dim; radio shuts off; ebs, anti lock brake, engine light all begin to blink. Idle needles gets low. Power brakes lose function. We have owned the car since March 2016, car has 56000 miles. Taken to dealer a few times where the PCM was changed and issued not resolved. Changed faulty pulley on belt system and issue not resolved. Computer does not come back with any codes. Local mechanic checked for starter, alternator, ignition switch issues and all showing good. Vehicle is not part of Dodge recall of other 2010 that are having exact same issue.

While operating the vehicle, the interior lights, radio, air conditioner and windows become inoperable. The lights, radio, and air turn off, and the windows will not go up or down. The head lights still work, but the rest do not. Then they come back on out of nowhere. Then off and on and off and on... while sitting still and while driving. This has happened multiple times. And I fear it's going to start an electrical fire while we are in the vehicle.

Two years ago there was a recall on the 2009-2010 Dodge Caravan for the ignition switch turning off while the vehicle was being driven. I was told that my van was not a part of that recall, however there have been 5 instances where I have been driving in a parking lot or down a neighbor street when the van's engine just turns off and I loose stirring and braking ability. This morning when I was pulling out into traffic onto a main road this occurred again, but this time I was in danger and almost hit by several cars. The only way I can get the van to restart is to put it in park and try and start it. It usually takes to or 3 times before it will start, it seems to get stuck and the engine keeps trying to start until finally it will start and I can get it moving again. This van is the main vehicle for our family and after this morning I M in fear of my life and the lives of my children. Please look into this and help me get this fixed by the manufacturer. The number of impacted vehicles is greater than the recall they did a few years ago.

Grand Caravan

  • 115,000 miles
This problem has happened numerous times and continues to do so. When the van is running and in park it will not shift out of park unless I play with the key (jostle it around) the shift lever then is very hard to shift (as if it is half engaged). When the van is off I try to start the car but it doesn't start unless I remove the key and put it back in numerous times. The key has come out while it was running and I could not turn the car off until I put it back in the ignition and played with it for a few minutes. From the forums I have read this sounds exactly like what is happening with the recalled ignition parts but my VIN number doesn't seem to be on that recall list? there is no key-chain on the keys and never had any.
