Default 2005 Caravan SXT power door lock problem

The power door locks on our 2005 Caravan SXT are giving me problems. After driving one day, all of a sudden the driver's door lock button would not work, but the passenger button would. Next day, neither would work. The keychain remote will arm/disarm, but will not activate locks either. However, the lock buttons will lock/unlock liftgate only. Body control module was replaced 1 yr ago. Could this cause the problem?

Default RE: 2005 Caravan SXT power door lock problem

I have had the exact same problem you are describing. We bought this van 5 months ago and have been dealing with all kinds of issues ever since. This was a Dodge Certified Pre Owned with only 22,000 miles on it. Our 1997 Grand Caravan was more reliable than this van has been. We have had the body control module flashed2 times. Then 3 weeks ago they replaced the body control module. Last night the locks died again. Both door switches are dead and the remote locks don't work either. We also had to have the sway bar bushings replaced @ 25,000 miles because of the clunk in the front end. The A/C has a leak somewhere that they can't seem to find because it was low enough on freon that the compressor wouldn't kick on, And it has had the recall done. The right rear door had a terible rattle in it and they finally fixed that after 3 trips back to the dealer. We had a leak in with the sunroof which they did fix. All of this in just 5 months. Yes its under warranty but I can't tell you how many hours we have wasted taking this to the dealer which is 30 miles away. We like the features of the van but the reliability is crap, no wonder Dodge is having problems selling cars. If someone knows of a fix for the power locks please let us know.

Talked with the dealer again about the power lock problem he said it is a static electricity problem, but they don't have a fix for it yet. The last time ours quit they had us unhook the battery for 15min. and that did reset the locks and they are working again. I will let you know if I findout anything else from the dealer.

Welcome to DF
There is a update to flash the front control module. But until you get the flash done, remove the IOD fuse from the PDC for few mins. And then push the fuse back in.

Default 2005 Dodge Caravan door locks intermittent quit

Hey Folks: I have researched this issue since buying my 2005 Caravan in 2006. Here's the fix that I have found that works. Disconnect the negative battery cable from the negative battery post for more than one hour. This has permanently reset the computer in my 2005 minivan! Previous blog/forum recommendations spoke of 20-30 minutes; yet, the fix was only temporary. More than an hour seems to refresh the computer permanently and the problem still remains fixed now x about 3 months. Ed L.
