Dodge Grand Caravan Problem Reports
Most Reported Dodge Grand Caravan Problem Reports
A defective anti-lock brake system (ABS) pump and/or leaking piston seals in the master cylinder can cause excessive pedal effort, lack of stopping power, and abnormal pump noise. Diagnoses will be required to determine the root cause of any braking issues and the component(s) that will require replacement.
Due to a lack of lubrication, the AC compressor can fail. The AC compressor warranty was extended to seven years or 70,000 miles.
If the transmission is slipping in first gear or Reverse—or if you experience delayed or loss of gear engagement after initial startup—the transmission may require removal and disassembly.
The airbag warning light may remain illuminated while the ignition switch is in the "on" position. This can be caused by water that has entered into the airbag six-way connector in the engine compartment.
A dirty throttle body may cause low engine idle speed or frequent stalling, as oily residue blocks air flow in the throttle when the throttle is closed. Throttle body cleaning may be necessary to correct this condition. Our technicians caution against spraying cleaner directly onto the throttle body as this may damage the throttle position sensor (TPS).
A yellow anti-lock brake system (ABS) warning light may remain illuminated. If a wheel speed sensor fault is discovered, sensor connectors should be inspected. Damaged or spread terminals must be repaired or replaced.
A momentary loss of power steering can occur when the AC or defroster is on during high humidity conditions. This is due to condensation from the evaporator draining onto the serpentine belt. To fix the problem, a spout on the AC evaporator drain and a new serpentine belt should be installed. Some vehicles may need a revised serpentine belt tensioner.
Problems with the wiper parking circuit or wiper motor can cause the windshield wipers not to stop in the proper position.
