I haven't had THAT problem. But I do want to ask if anyone has had problems with the power windows in their Grand Caravan. Mine is a 1997 and I have replaced almost everything but the engine (probably next). I have replaced the power window on the drivers side 5 TIMES in the past 3 months. It will last for about 2 weeks & strip the gears again. I was told by my mechanic that its "just a Dodge problem" and that it will keep happening. I don't have to pay for a new one everytime (its under warranty from when I first purchased the first motot) but it is COLD and very frustrating when the window goes down in the door and I have to ride like that until I can get to my mechanic!
Anyone else have a problem like this?
#3473 of 4276 99 G Voyager cuts off dealership can't fix it ..
Dec 07, 2005 (1:33 pm)
My 99 GV cuts off while driving it, more often while it is still cold. The dealer had it for a week and ' couldn't duplicate the problem'. I came in and drove it w/one of the mechanics and a computer hooked up to it and it cut off after about 3 minutes of driving it. The dealer said the tests came back with numerous spikes in voltage and he could not begin to figure out the problem. It does not hesitate, drive rough, or give you any warning it's going to cut off. It just goes out. I asked about the TPS and he said the voltage would be low, not high, so he does not think that's the problem.He's not going to charge me for the diagonistics since he doesn't know whats wrong. Any suggestions would be helpful.

I had wheel alignment done at the local Chrysler dealership last week and following this, I purchased three hankook tires from a local store. Config. is two new Hankook tires in the front and one Hankook and one uniroyal tiger paw at the back (215/65/16 T rated)
I noticed after putting the tires on that the car veers to the right, I contacted Chrysler and they were trying to blame it on the tire and suggested we swap the tires over as they will charge if they have to examine the vehicle again. The pull still occurs in the same direction.
The mechanic at the tire store drove the vehicle yesterday and said it is not a problem and blamed
it on the crown of our local roads saying it will not cause tire wear. However driving on the interstate last night, doing 60mph, it still veers to the right.
My question is has anyone experienced this or should the alignment still be checked.

While I'm not saying that your single Uniroyal Tiger Paw is the cause of your pulling, I will say that most if not all competent shops will not spend too much time on debugging your problem until there are four identical tires on your car. Obviously with the odd tire on the rear it will be less of an issue, but potentially an issue nonetheless.
Suggestion, buy another Hankook tire and use the TigerPaw as a spare.
#3478 of 4276 air conditioning related to oil pan?
Dec 10, 2005 (7:17 am)
I have a 2000 dodge caravan. the a/c was working fine til after i had the oil pan replaced by the dealer. after that, the a/c wasn't blowing cold air. it was warm. would it be possible that there's something related to the a/c in the area of the oil pan? perhaps something the mechanic did to the a/c system while replacing the oil pan?
doesnt make sense to me, but i dont know what else could have caused the a/c to not be cold immediately after the oil pan was worked on.
pls advise, tks!

The mechanic may have unplugged the AC connection at the compressor. Good luck.

Did this ever get resolved? Do you know what the problem is? I have a 2002 T&C EX. I have the exact same issue.
