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

  • 53,000 miles
Van would crank but would not start. After several attempts it started but ran erratic. After driving van for ~20 minutes van began to hesitate while driving at 55 mph on a state highway. I researched problem on internet and noticed other with a similar problem. I also noticed Chrysler announced a recall on 2011 Dodge durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVS for a very similar problem but not for the Grand Caravan. The root cause of the problem appears to be the fuel pump relay in the tipm. I discussed the problem with my local Chrysler dealership and the service adviser indicated that he was aware of the recall and had also seen the similar issue on vans. The dealership bypassed the relay using mopar part cbwpr091aa wiring - fuel pump relay. Part was $18.88 and total bill with labor was $176. The van appears to be operating normally at this time.

The vehicle became difficult to start until it finally quit starting. We replaced the fuel pump, but the problem continued. It has now been diagnosed as a faulty tipm. The replacement part is on backorder and there is no delivery date set as of yet.

The total integrated power module needed to be replaced, my windows weren't working, the tire pressure light would not turn off. My car stalls each morning 4X's before it can be turned on. I work with dogs, and when I have parked with a car full of dogs, I have waited up to 45 minutes to until my car had been able to finally start and drive off which is dangerous for the livelihood of the animals! I took my car to the dealer, and have to pay almost 2,000 dollars to get this fixed. This is not a ware and tear issue, this is a faulty Dodge part!!!

Grand Caravan

The 2011 Grand Caravan had trouble starting one morning but soon started. Soon after, the problem appeared to happen more frequently. One morning the battery was dead even though it was a fairly new battery. I exchanged for a new battery and it was dead again on another morning soon after for no valid reason. From the start of the problems till now-it's increasingly difficult to start at the beginning of the day and the vehicle stalls occasionally after starting in the middle of the day. The repair shop says they think it is the tipm, but says there is no way to sure. After much research since then, it appears to be a problem that known but no recall has been issued yet for this vehicle. Twice my wife and two small children have been stranded--I consider this a safety issue. I'm told it's $700+ to replace. I have found doors unlocked or completely open for no apparent reason. I've read online that the dead battery that has happened has happened to other owners and was linked to the fuel pump running continuously. I see that a problem was identified in the Jeep Grand Cherokee and the durango and that there was a class action lawsuit from November 2013.

Vehicle had difficulty starting beginning in August 2015. Now it takes several attempts to start and will often not stay running once put into drive. Vehicle stalled out in traffic yesterday, luckily it was on a residential street and I was able to get to the side of the road quickly. Afraid to drive this vehicle at all now as I've read that additional problems occur with this problem (airbags not deploying or randomly deploying)
