So I have a 2010 Grand Caravan SXT (w/ the 4.0l engine).
We had the "ignition turning off" problem, and now we're getting another great electrical gremlin. I have, of course, just passed 36,000 miles, so wanted to get some insights before I get a dealer run around.
Recently (twice) while driving, basically everything in the "center stack" (radio, HVAC + turn signals) has died. The car keeps running, but I lose all those items. (I didn't think to check the wipers). The gauges still work, and no error lights illuminate. (I will try to check for stored codes tonight).
I've found quite a few reports
of this problem, and it seems to be a known issue
on older vans, but I haven't found much forum discussion (with resolution) on more recent models. This is a tough one to search as on a generic google it's really tough to filter out sales results, and even on forum specific searches there's a lot of generic terms...
Has anyone had this happen? Has it been successfully resolved? Was it covered under warranty?
It's making my wife rather nervous, as she had to live through the "van turns itself off" problem for nearly a year before we got it fixed...
