Defective Interior Accessories

The 2005 Dodge Caravan is renowned for its interior accessory problems, the most common of which are power door lock failures. Sometimes the solution is as simple as unhooking the negative battery cable for a few moments.  Another solution is to remove and replace the 20 amp fuse. If neither of these solutions are effective, take it to a professional. Our team of professional auto mechanics are more than capable of solving any electrical issues you may have.

"Awesome service! Great place to have all your vehicle maintenance done. Would highly recommend Hansma Automotive." - Kathy

Brake Failure

The 2008 Grand Caravan has become known for premature brake failure. Most frequently, the answer has been to replace pads, calipers and even the rotors. Brake problems are not something to take lightly, so contact us if you are concerned about your vehicle's stopping ability.

A/C Breakdowns

Another common problem with the 2008 Grand Caravan lies with the A/C unit. Owners report frequent failures with repairs averaging $1000. We use the coast to coast guaranteed parts provided by CARQUEST. Get peace of mind by booking an appointment with us if you suspect your A/C unit is not working at full capacity.

Engine Stalls

Besides also suffering from the premature brake failures described above, the 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan has also suffered from engine stalls, even while the vehicle is in motion. This seems to be a problem that Dodge is struggling to solve and has now become the subject of a 2014 safety investigation. We are equipped to deal with all manner of engine problems and have built a strong reputation for our technical expertise and customer service.
