What did you do and did it work to fix the door problem. I have had all the electrical changed and the passenger door works again, but now the drivers door side is not opening with the switch, and it openings all the time on its own. I think it is just a flaw in the vechicle and there is nothing else to be done. That is what the customer service told me. If there is something else that you have found that works, please let me know. I have had to fight this issue for the past 6 months. Thanks!

My 2002 is doing the same thing we have replaced the wiring assembly in the door track and swapped out the switch on the door. I have taken it to the dealer as well they found no codes on the computer. They think it could be the sliding door module $406 or the body control module $720 they are not willing to take parts back if it does not fix the problem so it could be expensive. I have sent a complaint to Chrysler in hope of some resolution. Dealer contacted Star and they told them a few things to do that did not work although they did not mention want it was. Does anyone have a fix or further information on what has or has not worked. Mine works fine if I drive every day and keep doors locked. If not locked door will open on it's own after 40 seconds. If not driven every day or kept unlocked it will drain battery to dead although will recharge with a trickle charger and run again.

It has something to do with the electrical system in the car. I had an extended warranty on my van and filed a complaint with the Dodge customer service. They fixed all the electrical on the van door passengerside and it did fix it, but now the driverside door is doing the same thing. I just have to keep it locked at all times. They told me that is all they would fix on it and if it messed up, I would have to have the rest fixed myself. It is a flaw on this van, and I believe there should be a recall on the van. I myself, am just waiting until it is paid off, and I am getting rid of it, and I will never own a Dodge vehecial again!!!! Customer Service was nice until you get a case worker, then you just have to stay on top of them and they finally did something. You might want to try to file with the customer service and see if they will try once to fix yours. It is a pain, and quite embarrassing to deal with the problem! I think everyone with the problem should complain to customer service and then they might get that there is a true problem with the van doors. Sorry, I truly feel your pain!
#21 of 27 2009 Grand Caravan Purchase
Apr 23, 2011 (5:31 pm)
I am interested in purchasing a 2009 Grand Caravan SXT with 29,000 miles. The sticker was $31,970 which included $225 for Crimson Pearl Coat, $400 for pwr lift gate and $2,200 for Customer Preferred Pkg 25K which included the dual screen DVD entertainment system. How much should I pay for this vehicle? It appears to be in great shape. Also, should I refrain from buying it because of the reported brake issues on these vehicles or has that now been rectified? Thanks.
#22 of 27 '08 T&C left rear power door/window not working
Jun 08, 2012 (6:13 pm)
Left rear door on '08 Town and Country will not open or close when using keyless entry, button on driver's overhead controls, or button just inside the door. The window to that left rear door will not roll down and if the door is open, that is not indicated on the dashboard. Any information on what could be causing this or helpful tips as to a remedy would be greatly appreciated!

This is a very common and widely known issue with Dodge Grand Caravans. I have had mine repaired twice and now neither door can open and is not even able to be opened up on the inside. This is a major safety concern that should have been recalled a long time ago. I feel that a law firm should get a hold of this and file a Class Action Lawsuit against Dodge. Inoperable doors that open automatically or cannot be opened from the inside is a significant known flaw and major safety issue. I will never buy a Dodge after owning this Caravan. They also have major issues with brake wear, power steering issues, and other unacceptable engineering issues. But the doors should be considered a safety recall and Class Action Lawsuit.

I am glad to say that I traded in my Dodge Caravan!!! I too will never have a Dodge vehicle again! It took me several tries to get my van doors fixed, and it only worked for three months! The customer Service told me that they did all they could do to try to fix it!!I keep it until it got payed off, then traded it for a new non Dodge vehicle. Had troubles with brakes pedal and windows too! I too think that the doors are the main safety issue. Most diffently needs to have a recall on the doors! I feel for anyone you has to deal with the Dodge Customer Service. They are not easy to deal with! I almost forgot. I have had two other friends have problems with their Dodge van doors, and they have traded their vans in too!

#27 of 27 sliding door drive cable installation
Apr 08, 2013 (4:52 pm)
I am sorry for all the problems expressed above. My 2003 T & C is doing well, so far, in the areas discussed. However, I have a problem that it seems has happened only to my van. The "drive cable" broke into. i parked on an incline, set the door in motion to open, and the cable just snapped into. Must have already been frayed, and the extra weight popped it, I suppose. My problem is, how to install the new cable. If anyone has done so, and can provide info as to how to get to the channels and route the cable--a schematic would be nice--and, warning about any pitfalls or difficulties, I would greatly appreciate it.
