I have a problem with my 1999 Grand Caravan, the air bag light is on and the horn will not blow, and the cruise won't work. I got in contact with Chrysler and they told me they don't know of a recall. It is dangerous to drive a car with no horn, and what if the airbag comes out and cause an accident.

  • Automatic transmission

Clock assembly faulty on 1999 Grand Caravan. This vehicle is used as a company van. First aiirbag light came on then the cruise control and horn stopped working. Twice in emergency situations the horn did not work. Had clock assembly replaced at a cost of $304.53. This seems to be a manufacturer problem and a recall should be in place.

We have been complaining that there is something wrong with the transmisson since September 1999. The dealer said that the computer shows in spec. The speed sensor went and the van could not shift gears. Replaced and failed again taking out the speedometer. Told it was just a lose wire this time. The dealer told me that all 1998-99 vehicles have the same rev of sensor and Chrysler will not replace them until the fail. At the same time the airconditioner failed -told that the condenser failed due to leaves rotting the system. A vacuum hose failed and another one came lose. Now the trans shudders when shifting. Told that the tran is built like this and most people don't notice it. Chrysler is aware of the problem but won't fix it. Dealer suggested that I not keep this vehicle past warranty as it will continue to fail and become costly to me. They also told me my expectations were too high and I should have purchased a foreign vehicle if I wanted reliability. I contacted Chrysler. Their cust service said that they are only concerned with fixing the vehicle and not building customer relations. I was told that managers will not speak to customers. My wife was almost rear ended when the transmission failed and is afraid to drive the vehicle.
