  2. 2015 106k (km) Transmission Woes

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    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...
  3. Air bag light stays on

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    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...

  5. Common Problems?: 5th Gen / 2014 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    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...

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    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?

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    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...
  8. 2009 Grand Caravan Cold Start Screeching Sound

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    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...
  9. Refrigerant Oil Capacity Spec Inconsistencies

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    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...

  13. On the verge of going through Lemon Laws

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    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...

    Just bought a used 2005 Grand Caravan SE with 95K miles. I think I got a really good deal and it seems to be running great, but has a few issues that I will be working on over the next several weeks: 1) I think an ABS sensor needs replaced (found some good writeups on this board about that...
