MY 2015 Town and Country CHRYSLER MINIVAN WAS PARKED IN A HOT GARAGE IN FLORIDA IN THE EARLY MORNING, WHEN I OBSERVED THE FRONT RIGHT SIDE PASSENGER'S HEADREST TO BE OPENED AND APPEARING TO BE FORCED FORWARD. NO ACCIDENT OR MOVING WAS INVOLVED. THERE WAS NO ACTIVITY THAT SHOULD HAVE CAUSED THE HEADREST TO DEPLOY FORWARD. I BELIEVE THIS IS PROBABLY A HEADREST THAT IS USED FOR AN ANTI WHIPLASH DEVICE IN CASE OF AN ACCIDENT. WITHOUT A DOUBT, THIS IS A SAFETY ISSUE AS ACCIDENTAL DISCHARGE OF THIS HEADREST COULD CAUSE SERIOUS INJURIES. NO INJURIES TOOK PLACE.
In the past 3 years the active grille shutter had to be fixed 3 times. The check engine light would always come up for this issue after it was stationary or parked over night and then the light would come up when it was time to drive again. Finally the dealership fixed the the problem they said the transmission needed to be fixed. After the transmission was fixed my car now overheats after being idle for more than a few minutes. Also the passenger air bag sensor was fixed twice but lit up on my dashboard recently again.
One minute the airbag light will be on then the next it will be off. It? S something with the passenger side every time someone sits there or move the passenger seat. It continues to go on and off. I have searched on the internet for any recalls but didn? T see any. I did notice that other people are also having problems with this on either both, or just one side of the car. It? S not just me having a problem with the airbag. I think this should be a safety hazard and needs to be recalled to be fixed.
Repeated, video documented occurences of vehicle stalling, losing power steering, and losing all driver-assist features, to include traction control, blind spot monitoring, power steering, forward collision avoidance, adaptive cruise control, airbags, and other systems. The problem has repeatedly occurred when the vehicle is in motion; has occurred on a highway as well as in parking lots. The vehicle will suddenly exhibit 'haywire' behavior, which includes fuel and power gauges randomly fluctuating up and down, and all above safety system warnings intermittedly indicating they are offline. In extreme scenarios, power steering will be lost. Additionally, in once scenario, the 'haywire' behavior precluded the ability to turn the vehicle off without resorting to disconnecting hard-wire battery connections. Multiple videos have been made documenting the behavior. Previous attempts to resolve with manufacturer resorted in no corrective action due to 'failure to duplicate' the issue, despite having video showing the occurrence. Originally brought to dealer and nhtsa attention in 2020 (nhtsa complaint #11292415). Dealer has done nothing to resolve the issue and in the past week the issue has recurred, now more consistently than the incident previously reported. Within the past week, the vehicle has stalled twice, resulting in complete loss of power steering. The "haywire" behavior continues, with persistent warnings and loss of essential systems, and the "haywire" behavior increases distractions by imposing false blindspot warning indicator lights and intermittently changing brightness of the entire electronic displays at random, as well as persistent and intermittent loss of functionality of essential safety systems, including airbags and other driver safety features. Videos of the bizarre, "haywire behavior" are available upon request. Jkinzel@gmail. Com 661-496-8046.
