1996 Dodge Grand Caravan Problems

Key May Not Start Car or Release From Ignition

Intermittently, the key may not start the car or release from the ignition. If it is excessively worn, replace the key. If the new key doesn't work, replacing the lock cylinder including tumblers should correct this concern.

Power Window Motor and Switches May Fail

One or more power windows may stop working due to a failed window motor or regulator. In some cases these items are replaced as a set. If not, diagnoses will be required to determine which is at fault.

Auxillary Heater Hose Connections May Develop Coolant Leaks

The auxiliary heater hose connections (that are routed to the rear heater under the vehicle) can develop coolant leaks.
