2005 Dodge Caravan Owner Comments

problem #4

Jan 152008

Caravan 4-cyl

  • 64,000 miles


After raining and freezing overnight, I got into my 2005 Dodge Caravan to go to work. I attempted to move down the drivers side window with the power window down switch. The window was frozen in place. After trying to get the window down 3 or 4 more times. I gave up and went onto work. When I came out from work to go home the window was completely down. I tried to use the power window up button and it would not raise. Took it to a Dodge dealer and they replaced the entire window raising/lowering mechanism at a cost of over $400. Sent complaint to Chrysler and they did not even write me back. Do not try to lower a window in a Dodge Caravan as the mechanish is weak, mis-designed and flimsy.

The power locks on my wife's 2005 Dodge Caravan SXT quit working. The power windows will quit working and will alternate(if driver window works passenger doesn't and the opposite) I have read on other sites about disconnecting the battery. This works for a couple of days and the problems come back. What happens if my wife and son are involved in a crash and the door locks don't work?

Defective sway bar at 28,000 miles-dealership stated it is normal with this year of Caravan & that I don't have to have replaced lights would not shut off or turn on with manual operation - when the vehicle is off for a long time the lights turn on for no reason at all. We have replaced the lightbulbs on 3 different occasions fuse keeps on blowing in engine at 32,000 miles, 34,000 miles and 39,050 miles. Electronic windows, door locks, automatic side door no longer operate at 41,000 miles. Excessive corrosion around battery every 4,000 miles paid to have cleaned 5 times and they say my battery is fine other than the corrosion build up.

Consumer's air bag light is on. Consumer is concerned that if involved in an accident no air bag will deploy. Also, engine makes noise, and driver's side window regulator does not work. Phone interview update (Oct 24, 2005): The passenger side air bag module was defective.
