problem #4

Grand Caravan 6-cyl

  • 124,000 miles
On 12/25/2010 my family and I was driving in our 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan sport, VIN # [xxx]. we slide on ice and snow going down a hill and at about 35-40 mph we smashed into a tree head on. Both airbags failed to deploy and both front seat belts did not lock. Lucky no big injuries. The whole front end, metal bar, radiator, hood and frame were all damaged. If the tree would have been any larger, we would have had serious injuries. Information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

I purchased a new 2002 Dodge Caravan on 4/17/02. On 5/27/02 the van was in the dealership with the airbag light on (this was the second time it was in the shop for this same problem - previously in on 4/25/02). According to the dealer, the seat belt tensioner circuit was opened, wires traced back from acm to tensioner, no crimps found, module needed to be replaced. The airbag control module was then replaced.
