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.

The contact owns a 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan. While the vehicle was parked, the rear power sliding doors were opened but the doors independently closed. The contact was in between the sliding door without the lock button being activated at the time of the failure. As a result, the contact sustained a bruise on the arm that did not require medical attention. In addition, the contact heard a noise when the doors were opened. The vehicle was taken to a dealer who was unable to diagnose or repair the vehicle. The failure recurred on numerous occasions. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was unknown. Updated 8/19/15

2011 Dodge Grand Caravan passenger sliding doors will randomly shut after being opened and reaching the full open position. Video demonstration will be posted soon on youtube with the previous sentence as search title. Occurs when any button in the car, remote, or manual handle is used to activate automatic opening of the door. Symptoms have occurred in many locations and at all car ground slope angles. Problem began after the recall powertrain software update. Car has been to dealer many times and symptoms have been reproduced at dealership. Re-training an affected door may reduce symptoms. A door module was replaced but did not repair problems. Because it is random passengers are unsuspecting. Multiple incidents have occurred with doors closing on passengers who enter before the door has finished opening. Multiple incidents have occurred of unbalanced adults placing babies into child seats who have less then one inch clearance to their arm with the door in the full open position and have no time to react. When this occurs the adult may lose hold of the baby. A parent placing a child in a carseat may have the door shut on their torso. Children or frail adults entering or exiting the vehicle may be ejecting into or out of the car and may be seriously injured during the fall. Children or adults entering or exiting the vehicle may have a body part trapped in the door and seriously injured.
