Grand Caravan

  • 90,000 miles
Dodge Caravan door sensors- I have a 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan, I purchased the vehicle used about 3 years ago. During the first winter the "door open" light would flash and ding and the doors would unlock and relock, over time it has become worse especially during colder seasons. I have looked into this matter and have read complaints that this has happened to people that just purchased their cars brand new and many more complaints all over the internet. I don't understand why this is not a recall and being taken care of, I have read where people have been locked out of there cars because it would happen when they stepped out of the car and left it running. I have 2 toddlers and the thought of that scares me, for example if I turn on the car to warm up and put the kids in the car and go to put groceries in the back, and the car locks up. Besides the threat of getting locked out, it is absolutely annoying to be driving down the street and to have the door alarm constantly going off and the doors locking and unlocking. I have looked into getting this fixed and I was told it could be around $600 to get the sensors replaced.....that is just ridiculous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan has on three occasions locked itself after I closed the driver door. The locksmith who came out and the rep I talked to from Chrysler both said this is common with this model. If this is a common problem, there should be a recall.
