Hi, I bought a used 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan in June of '05 (bought with 21K miles, now has 25K miles). Was noticing some unusual noises under the hood and when I make right hand turns. Just found out that the rack & pinion is bad....major fix. It is under warranty but I'm wondering what could have caused this in such a new car....carfax didn't report any crashes. Thoughts anyone?? Anything I should watch for after the fix? Thanks everyone!

I bought a new 2005 Grand Caravan in August of last year and it now has 21,000 miles. I took it in for an oil change last week and they said that the bushings where loose so they replaced them. 2 days ago the front end started to knock so I took it back in today and guess what!! The rack & pinion has to be replaced at 21,000 miles.
The van is still under the original warranty but thank god I bought a bumper to bumper extended warranty.
I also have electronic sliding doors on the van and I have had to get the wiring harness replaced already.
No problems so far with the Stow and Go seating...thank-god!!

I'm looking to buy a 2006. I need the tow package and these look identical although Dodge seems a little less expensive. Am I missing something as to why the Chrysler costs more?
Thanks for replying

I beleive it is the trim packages and mouldings between the Dodge and Chrsyler. I ran into the same thing when I bought my Dodge Grand Caravan last year. The Town and Country priced out higher but the engine, transmission and features where the same expect for the body mouldings and interior trim packages.

#3341 of 4276 1996 Town & Country..Turn Sig's and gauge cluster dead
Oct 21, 2005 (3:59 pm)
I recently bought a 1996 T&C , shortly after buying this van i noticed the left (drivers) tail light & front parking light would not work with the headlights on..I changed the bulbs, still not working..
a few days later I noticed the turn sig's didnt work all the time and now the dash cluster cuts in and out and the alarm light comes on..
once in a while it will start and then stall after a few seconds..
Common sence tells be bad ground wire , but I dont have the a clue where to start looking...
anyone else had these problems? any ideas where to start looking for these electrical gremlins? (the Gremlin was a kick ass little car, wish I had one now)

What if it's not the bulb? This afternoon I was out running errands in my 1997 Dodge Grand Caravan. Everything was fine until I left the last location. I turned on the van, and the right turn blinked fast. I got home and saw that the right-front turn signal and the right-front running light were off. I pulled out the old bulb and saw that both its filaments were intact. I installed a new, unused bulb (also with good filaments), and it did not work either. No turn signal, no parking light. What else could be the problem?

i am currently having ,the same problem with my 1995 grand ply.voyager..just last week it stopped running on a friday,and on that sunday,i went out to crank it and it started right up..i drove it all week long back and forward to work and then the following week it after i had pumped some gas,i could'nt start it back..the guy that works with me,who also fixes the school buses where i work seems to think it could be the fuel pump or the injectors..not to mention since the price of gas has went up my tank has been on empty latly which may have played a part in it..i hope maybe this help a little..

Just to follow up - the mechanic is an old friend, he wanted to change the fluid and filter again just to go thur things. He did, problem was still there, he call Chrysler. They finally told him it was a computer reprogram, but they couldn't explain why. Just said it happened sometimes. He reprogrammed, everything is cool.

Not exactly a problem but was wondering if anyone knows where I can get OEM front floor mats for my '99 Grand Caravan? All the stuff in the auto stores just doesn't fit very well.
