I was driving my 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan SE on the night of I02/11/2014 when a wrong-way driver hit me (head on collision). She turned right to get gasoline (note: Not to avoid us, did not know she was going wrong way until we hit her), and we hit her side door, tire area, and the vehicle bounced backwards. I had to push off the steering wheel to prevent my head from going thru the windshield, my father who was the passenger, hit his arm off the dashboard. The air bags did not deploy, which was the issue. The manufacturer was contacted, they looked at the car and said nothing is wrong with it and that the car would have to be crushed for the air bags to deploy, the air bags have been recalled before, which is a concern to me. When looking at the vehicle dash board, it does not appear that there is even a passenger air bag in place. My bumper had damage, a long with my head light, along with my hood. I was traveling about 40mph in a 45mph zone, as we were slowing down at a red light and when it turned green again I continued on. We had injuries of our neck and back as well as the drivers left foot, my wrist hurt from time to time and still somewhat does, from pushing off the wheel.updated 06/03/14 updated 06/06/2014

Automatic door locks on rear sliding doors with powered door closures. The cam that allows the door lock/unlock circuit to complete gets out of position and blocks the lock/unlock from occurring. Happens whenever an object blocks the door from closing. Door will not lock/unlock via buttons for 16 attempts in a row, regardless of time between interrupt and attempt to lock/unlock. Could hamper vehicle evacuation.
