2013 Dodge Grand Caravan ProblemsUnderbody Coolant Leaks From Rear Heat/AC Are Common
Coolant leaks coming from the underbody on vehicles equipped with rear heat/AC are common. The underbody hoses should be inspected as part of regular maintenance. If you drive on roads where salt is prevalent the problem is generally more severe. Some 2005 models are involved in a special service action, no government recall was issued.
A problem with the sliding door track and door stops can allow the door to slide out of the track and fall off the vehicle. This is more common when doors are opened fast and allowed to hit the stops with a lot of force.

The vent window switch on the driver's door armrest may overheat. Dealers will replace the vent window switch with a revised version free of charge to resolve the problem.
The occupant restraint control module monitors vehicle occupant and crash data to determine which airbags to deploy when necessary. A software error may result in the airbags deploying from the opposite the side of impact (a left side impact would deploy the right side airbags and vice versa). This would leave the occupant at the point of impact with no protection, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will reprogram the occupant restraint control module to correct this concern.
The incorrect software may have been installed in the occupant restraint control module (ORC). As a result, the airbags may not deploy as expected in the event of a crash. Improperly deployed airbags can increase the risk of personal injury. Dealers will inspect and replace the ORC module as necessary to correct this concern.
