Discuss your fifth generation minivan here. Get tips and technical assistance specific to your era of Chrysler Minivan
Since the 3rd and 4th generations have a thread about mileage, and I just hit a milestone on my 2009, I decided to start this thread for 5th generation owners.
I hope the "High Milers Club" still exist, I want to get the 200,000 mile license plate frame.
So the 2015 GC I bought came with a 430N-RHB radio, but no uconnect module (so no bluetooth for the phones). Here is a DIY of how to install the module after the fact. It was really easy to do.

Our 2010 DGC 4.0 V6 just crossed 101,000 miles so it was high time to replace the timing belt, and spark plugs while I was in there. Turns out, removing the spark plugs while doing the belt service makes it that much easier.
There's not much on the old intarwebs about the 4.0 V6. There's a bit...
The 5th Generations can be fitted with a regular single piston brake package or a heavy duty dual piston package, depending on year and options selected. The regular brake package can be upgraded to the heavy duty package. This Sticky on 5th Generation brakes starts out with reference to these...

My 2015 T&C has a DVD in the 2nd row, can I add a 2nd screen to the 3rd row area in the overhead storage? Any write ups on this?
I had a question. Does anybody know what having these four warning dashboard lights come on mean ?( ESP/BAS, ABS, BRAKE, TRACTION CONTROL) I tried taking to my dealership (45 minute drive) early this morning and was turned away because they were "backed up", was told to try again...
Anyone replace their 62TE themselves?
I found a handful of gear teeth and a lot of shavings in the transmission pan when I changed the fluid and filter.
When I back up over the one inch concrete lip to my garage I get a shudder and it feels like the transmission is slipping. Forward seems fine...
I own a 2008 Grand Caravan 3.8L SXT with 185,000 miles on it. A problem just started where when the outside temperature is above 70 degrees, the engine is very hard to restart if it sat for about 5-15 minutes after being fully warmed up using the tip start feature. It acts as if it's...
Sorry if there's already a thread about, I couldn't find it.
I have an 08 3.3.
There's the smell of coolant when you get out of the car after a drive, and in the engine bay until you let it blow away. It's so slight it doesn't drip. I have heard the Y pipe is a common culprit. In what way does...
08 SXT 3.3, regular brakes. On the right rear, there's a 2 mm gap between the piston and the inboard pad. The brakes work fine, but when it retracts, it goes way back and leaves a gap. No wonder the pedal is so long! What is wrong? Why would it do that? Would a new caliper fix it? Or does this have...
Just got a new-to-us 2008, in the second row (swivel, not stow, if it makes a difference, does it make a difference?) one of the recliner handle covers is missing. The metal lever is there and works fine, but the cover is gone. I'm headed to a junkyard for a couple other things (top tray of center...
For the life of me, I cannot find the transmission filler tube. I bought a dipstick to use, knowing the 2014 GC does not have a dipstick, but there appears to be no filler tube.
Does anything else have a 2014 that can direct me as to where the trans filler tube is?
Yeah that's right you're jealous. This was what I did today. Need my touch up paint to come in to fix the door dings and rock chips and then I can wax it up good.
Maybe once a week it won't start on the first try. I can hear the starter try to turn for a split second. Then it starts normally. No ticking and the battery is new and good so it's not the battery. Could there be anything else other than the starter dying? I want to replace it before I get stuck...
My wife has decided she is buying a 2008 T&C touring edition. We'll be looking at it on Saturday. Any common problems to watch out for?
I got a Safety Recall notice in the mail, but going to FCA website and putting in my VIN shows no recalls. The card doesn't say what the recall is for. Anyone heard of a recall for these vans. Yes, I will contact the dealer today.
My wife recently took our 2010 Town & Country in for an oil job, break job, and tire swap. The shop that worked on it advised that it was in need of replacement plugs and cables. So to save some money I took on the task of replacing them on my own. I replaced them with Bosch plugs and Duralast...
I am in the process of buying a 'new' car for the family. I have a 2014 Durango & love it. This new minivan will replace my old 2009 Honda Ody which was a good car also.
I am looking at two cars would love some feedback. I have the lifetime maximumcare warranty on my Dodge & that gives...
Found very low mileage 2017 GT at a good price, but it's 175 miles away, so I can't just buzz over for a test drive. One thing I'm concerned about is the so-called performance suspension the GT comes with. I now have a 2013 with the standard suspension, and it rides fairly stiff. I'm wondering...
Some say yes and some say no. I don't know who to believe. But I went ahead and disconnected the battery. So I guess I'll find out if I can tell any difference.
Anyone know for certain?
My transmission was rebuilt last year and ever since it was rebuilt it shifts hard between 2nd and 3rd gear only on the upshift. I have had it reflashed recently and it helps smooth out the shift for a for short period of time but it is back again.
Looking for a fix.
I have a 2012 Grand Caravan that the cruise control doesn't always work. I took it in to the dealership, and after working with Chrysler on it, they determined that the cruise control switch needed to be replaced.
At the time, it was back ordered, and the cruise started working again, so I...
I have 101k miles on my 08 t&c limited with 4.0L and am thinking about changing the plugs.
I'm looking at NGK ZFR5LP-13G laser platinum plugs. Are these good? What's is the original plug manufacturer?
Also, I have the alldatadiy instructions but am wondering if there are any gaskets...
It is brake time. I Ordered both front and rear Bendix Ceramic Brake Pads for ’12 Caravan. Upon visual inspection, I found that the Bendix Ceramic Brake Pads ae made in China.
Then I went Auto Zone, I bought top of the line in house, Duralast C-Max Gold ceramic brakes pads. Upon visual...
