Door locks don’t work

My Power Door locks don’t work

If you’ve got power door locks and the door locks don’t work on your 2004-05 Caravan/Voyager, or T&C van, it’s probably a software issue with the body control module. Chrysler has issued a software update to permanently solve the problem. The dealer will charge you ½ hr labor to perform the update. If you don’t want to have the update performed, you can work around the problem by disconnecting the negative battery terminal for 5 minutes. When you reconnect, the body control module (BCM) will reboot and start behaving itself. You can rest assured that the problem will return, but it may take 6 months for the problem to resurface.

If your dealer isn’t aware of the updated software, tell them to read TSB 08-040-04.
