    2012 Grand Caravan w/ touchscreen. Bluetooth phone calls work fine. If I select the Bluetooth input on my radio I can hear Alexa and Google Maps from my phone, but if I am listening to the FM radio I cannot hear Alexa or Google Maps. How do I get them to play over the top of the radio...

    Almost 2 years ago I decided to join this wonderful forum because I was having shuddering issues. I did extensive reading here and there and I resolved - maybe incorrectly - that I was having torque converter shudder. I did a variety of things including a complete flush at transmission shop (at...

    Hey guys, I see some threads where people have replaced the factory headrest with a DVD option on 5th gens, but nothing about the airbags, except this warning thread, about air bag light coming on, etc. I didn't know my '12 GC had headrest airbags, but when trying to remove the headrest, I...

    Looking to use a cargo carrier for an upcoming vacation and finally opened up the luggage rails. Is there a type of locking screw that I can purchase so that when I put on the carrier no one could steal it by just unscrewing the rails and taking them too? [email protected] Matt

    Hi Guys, I just closed a deal on a used 2012 T&C. I pick it up on Wednesday and plan to change out the headlight bulbs right away as I find the stock ones no bright enough and too yellow for my taste. I picked up a pare of the Sylvania silverstar Ultra Halogen bulbs. I was wondering if I need...

    Does anyone know where the leather starts and ends on a 2012 Chrysler T&C Touring? From the Chrysler LLC website, it says "leather trimmed". I have no idea what that means. I would like to think that the entire seating areas you actually touch is leather. The backs and sides, I would not...

    Hello! I've been a member here for about 3 weeks and this is my first post. TONS of great info - aside from the '12 T&C Touring-L, we have owned an '05 Grand Caravan (which was a 4/04 build Stow & Go that had no badging whatsoever - some of the internal documentation in the van referred to it...
