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.

Grand Voyager 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission

Contact stated when driving at 35-40 mph all panel lights went out, and there was not indication of speed. Currently, the panel lights no longer came back on. However the turn signal lights were still working. The contact did not know the number of occurrences because there were too many. Updated 12/27/2005 -

I see there is an investigation on Dodge Caravan and Grand Caravan, Plymouth Voyager and Grand Voyager and Chrysler town and country and Voyager minivans from the 2001 and 2002 model years. Owners have reported that the headlights are flickering, dimming and periodically shutting down while the vehicle is in motion. The problem has led to the minivans being towed in some cases. I would hope that you can add my year minivan. I have a 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager experiencing the same problems. I am not able to get it fixed because the mechanic can't figure out what is causing this. Is there anything you can do to add my vehicle to this safety investigation"?" the headlights are flickering on and off, the dash lights do this at the same time. Sometimes the headlights just stay on.

I own a 1998 Plymouth Grand Voyager. It has 168,900 miles on it. For the past 13 months, we have had numerous occasions when as we are driving, all gauges will suddenly stop functioning. This includes the speedometer. When our gauges go out, the airbag warning light comes on, indicating that system will not function properly in the event of an accident. Are other Voyager owners experiencing a similar problem?

  • miles
At 600 miles, instrument cluster failed, A/C not working, no reverse. Dealer replaced instrument cluster, could not duplicate the no reverse condition, and replaced the A/C fuse. At 6,363 miles, transmission slipping and scraping noise when turning left in reverse. Dealer could not duplicate. At 7,586 miles, no start condition on numerous occasions, after the dealer had the van for over a week, they finally duplicated the problem and and replaced the starter. At 36,141 miles the serpentine belt broke because of a defective tensioner pulley, dealer replaced the belt and tensioner, supposed goodwill, but we all know about the tsb, and all the other complaints. At 36,741 miles, leaking coolant, dealer replaced the rear head gasket, and did not even check the front head. (now who ever heard of replacing one head gasket on a V-6 motor, I guess Chrysler must think they are superior). At 53,000 complete engine failure, 2 hours away from home, and now waiting to see what the cause is. According to the service manager the motor is knocking and there is a lot of metal in the oil. And I forgot to mention that this vehicle has not even fulfilled the lease term. Nlm
