Dodge Grand Caravan recalls

 

For Models: Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge Grand Caravan, Dodge Journey

Electrical & Lights, June 26, 2014

RepairPal Expert Overview:

If the ignition key unexpectedly moves to the OFF or ACCESSORY position, the engine will turn off. This will depower various safety systems including but not limited to airbags, power steering, and power braking. Loss of functionality of these systems may increase the risk of crash and/or injury in the event of a crash. The weight of extra items on the ignition key ring can be a contributing factor to this unexpected occurrence. Until this recall is completed customers are advised to remove all other items from the ignition key ring. Dealers will modify the ignition switch to correct this concern.

For Models: Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge Grand Caravan, Ram C/V

Body, Interior & Misc., July 2, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

For Models: Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge Grand Caravan

Body, Interior & Misc., July 2, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

For Models: Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge Grand Caravan

Body, Interior & Misc., May 1, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Certain vehicles may have been manufactured with a right side liftgate pinch sensor that does not function properly. As a result, increased force may be required in order to stop the power liftgate during its final closing stages. If the power liftgate were to close on an appendage, personal injury may result. Dealers will replace the right side liftgate pinch sensor to correct this concern. The Chrysler recall number is M17.

For Models: Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge Grand Caravan

Suspension & Steering, April 2, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The right rear hub and bearing assembly may not have been fully machined. This could result in decreased durability. A failed hub assembly could cause the wheel to separate from the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the right rear hub assembly to correct this concern. The Chrysler recall number is M13.

For Models: Chrysler 200, Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge Charger, Dodge Durango, Dodge Grand Caravan, Dodge Journey, Jeep Grand Cherokee

Engine, September 26, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

667 vehicles equipped with a 3.6L engine are being recalled because a connecting rod bearing can fail due to debris inside the engine block. Connecting rod failure may lead to engine seizure, which can increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the engine to correct this concern. The Chrysler recall number is L33.

For Models: Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge Grand Caravan

Body, Interior & Misc., August 3, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Condensation from the AC (HVAC) system may leak from the drain grommet onto the occupant restraint control (ORC) module. This can lead to illumination of the airbag warning light and/or inadvertent airbag deployment. An inadvertent airbag deployment could result in injury and/or a vehicle crash. Dealers will replace the affected airbag module to correct this concern. This recall is expected to begin during August of 2011. The Chrysler recall number is L01.

Suspension & Steering, June 7, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Some vehicles may have been assembled with a missing or incorrectly installed steering column pivot rivet. This could result in a loss of steering capability, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the rivet and repair the steering column as required. This recall is expected to begin during June 2011. The Chrysler recall number is L23.

Electrical & Lights, March 1, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The ignition key could inadvertently rotate from the "run" to the "accessory" position, causing the engine to shut off without warning. If the engine shuts off while driving, vehicle performance will be affected, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the "WIN" module to correct this concern. The recall is expected to begin in April, 2011. The Chrysler recall number is L02.

For Models: Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge Grand Caravan

Heating & Air Conditioning, November 7, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Chrysler is recalling certain 2008 Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan vehicles to correct a possible water leak from the heating and A/C (HVAC) drain grommet. The water intrusion may cause illumination of the air bag light or inadvertent air bag deployment. Dealers will replace the HVAC drain grommet free of charge.
