The contact owns a 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan. While driving at an unknown speed, the vehicle stalled without warning. In addition, the contact heard an abnormal ticking noise prior to the failure. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic where it was diagnosed that the rocker arm, camshafts, and hydraulic lifter failed and needed to be replaced. The vehicle was repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 142,000.

ETM was stuck merging onto a highway while accelerating. Vehicle accelerated itself. Had to pull over and turn the car off to get it to reset. Vehicle would would redline RPM's while braking. Happened approx. November 2015. Hasn't happened again. Then a couple months later the clockspring behind the steering wheel went out rendering the horn and all steering controls (volume, cruise control, etc.) useless. It also caused the driver side airbag light to remain constantly on.

Grand Caravan

  • miles
While in motion on rural highway in moderate traffic, I made a quick short gun on gas pedal(not all the way down) as I was going thru yellow traffic signal light. The engine delayed it's revving, then revved, got stuck at high RPM. A red "electronic throttle control" indicator appeared on dashboard. With foot off gas pedal, the vehicle speeds up forward. Had a close call at braking with vehicle in front of me. Braking lowered the RPM but increases RPM / speed again when releasing brake pedal. Stuck with this issue for about a quarter of a mile. Issue disappeared when I came to a complete stop before making a turn. There was a strong feeling of click then the red throttle issue indicator disappeared. Happened once first time this am. No issue thereafter as I have not tried gunning the gas pedal again. I'm reporting this NHTSA first but need to know where to go next.

When backing up an 10% incline to back up into a parking space (first time since buying the van new with 8 miles on it) the vehicle shudders all the way until it stops. I have not experienced this in drive gears (yet). I have driven this van up and down briefly in the mountains, no issue while driving was noticed.
