    Ive got a 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan with all the usual rust in the dog leg panels. I'm trying to find prefabricated dog leg panels but am told that the American panels won't fit the Canadian vans because of a drastically different curve in the wheel arch. Anyone know where I can find a...

    Hi everyone, We are in the unfortunate position of needing some serious transmission work on our 2015 GC. I was driving the other day and noticed a kind of whining noise from under the hood. It quickly progressed into power loss and eventually the vehicle would just rev and not drive or reverse...

    I recently bought a 2008 Grand Caravan and am in the process of getting it certified to get the plates. I took it to the dealer to have the recalls done, among them the Occupant Restraint Control Module, which I thought would fix the air bag light being on all the time, but it didn't. The light...

    Hi everyone, we're new members here and have an unusual question we're please hoping for some help with. Has anyone got any experience installing tether anchors (or something similar) in the floor area behind the 2nd row seats (either side) of a 2016/2017 Grand Caravan? If so, does any one...

    Finally got around to upgrading from our slowly dying '02 DGC to a '14 DGC, and I'm hoping it will do us well for a number of years as our '02 did. I've skimmed over the 5th Gen forums and found a few things here and there, but searching is not always the best way to accomplish a desired task...

    Just bought a 2016 Grand caravan and it has a very nice entertainment center, but it is missing the navigation functionality. I really would like to add the nav function to the entertainment center. Any recommendations for the best replacement, either Dodge, or 3rd party upgrade?

    Hi there, I have a 2004 anniversary edition grand caravan. When changing the front brake pads, do I need to open the bleeder valve before pushing the pistons back in to prevent damage to the ABS hydraulic controller? I have heard that it is fine to not open the bleeder valve, and just unscrew...

    I have a 2009 Grand Caravan, and at Cold startups there is a high pitched, loud, screeching sound. It stays on for 60-90 seconds then goes away. I move the steering wheel while it is making the noise and the tone changes, but I think it is only because the pump is putting pressure on the motor...

    I'm changing the compressor on a 2000 GC. The vehicle has dual front and rear a/c. In researching the a/c oil capacity, it seems that the total oil capacity of the system differs depending on the source. Some say 13 ounces total capacity; others say 7.4 oz total capacity. For example, this link...

    Has anyone installed roof rails? One of my biggest regrets is buying my van without roof rails and now I need them. Is the installation difficult?

    I bought this van wrecked. The passenger right side had a black fender on it which they put on to replace the damaged one. I painted it to match and am trying to figure out what to call this plastic headlight frame piece so I can get a replacement. It looks to bolt behind the fender bolt and...

    We bought our 2015 Grand Caravan in April of 2015 and have loved having the car. It is exactly what we wanted and have loved driving it. In May it started to click at us from the dashboard and we decided to keep an eye on it. Now it has escalated to clicking, not letting the shifter out of...
