#191 of 411 Re: 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan Power door issue [squishy]
Apr 29, 2009 (9:33 pm)
This happened to me last summer and cost a couple-hundred to fix. Look down in the sides where it has something that looks kind of like a plastic bike chain... that is likely where the problem is coming from esp. if it is just one door. What happens is crumbs, dirt, dust, rocks etc get in there and inside that is wiring for your door, something gets pinched etc... and wala, ISSUE! I reccomend taking it to the dealer and having them check but I had the SAME problem. Door would pop open and not slide back.

I just read your post...I am having the same problem. I just purchased a 06 Dodge GC a month ago and have the leak in the exact place you mentioned.(the first heavy rain since the purchase) Were you able to find a solution? I would really love any info you could throw my way. Thank you .
#193 of 411 08 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT Noise at start up
May 27, 2009 (8:54 pm)
I first posted this several weeks ago. It is still doing it and seems worse. My husband keeps saying it has to do with the exhaust, but the dealership service center can not seem to find it, or it does not do it when they have it for a couple days at a time. Just thought I'd re post to see if anyone else is having a problem with a vibrating humming type noise at start up and lasts a few minutes. I actually think im hearing it while driving now too. thx

Does it have a metallic, tinny sound? If so, it may be a loose heat shield somewhere along the exhaust system.

I will def. ask the dealership guys to check it out. They say they have checked everything under there in the exhaust and it all looks good. But I'll tell them to look! Thanks..

Well, sometimes those heat shields can be tricky. For instance, I have one on my car that vibrates, but it is not "loose" in the sense that there is a nut that needs tightening. In this case, the shield just resonates with the vibration from the engine and produces a sound. If I bend it just a little, the sound stops for a while.
#198 of 411 Power window motor replacement and mechanics setup
May 29, 2009 (5:26 am)
My motor for the passenger side front door window of my 2005 Grand Voyager died and I bought a used one.
While replacing the motor the window slid down and I dropped the central part from where all the cables in the mechanic part comes out from and I now need to find a way to set it up again so I can first of all make the window stay up (without duct tape) and secondly use it again.
Can anyone please describe whow this is done?
Unfortunately this is not described in the Haynes manuals.

We had the same problem, I took it to a windshield repair place and they said the leak was coming from the outside seal on the right side for the windshield. The water runs down the rubber roof seal to the front windshield and then under the seal. The windshield guy took some sealant inside and moved the inside overhead back and down a little and was able to fix the problem. Haven't had a leak in over 2 yrs. My advice, take it to a windshield repair place and tell them where the leak is and have them seal it from inside. That solved our problem (knock on my desk). I think the problem is if you have the windshield replaced the replacement seal that goes around the new windshield isn't correctly manufactured or something so it doesn't seal around the windshield correctly.
