THE DRIVER'S SIDE PASSENGER SLIDING DOOR IS PERMANENTLY LOCKED DUE TO A FAULTY ACTUATOR. THIS POSES A SERIOUS SAFETY ISSUE FOR THOSE RIDING IN THE BACK OF THE VAN, IF THE OTHER SLIDER IS DAMAGED, THE PASSENGERS COULD BECOME TRAPPED IN THE VEHICLE. IN RESEARCHING THIS PROBLEM I HAVE ENCOUNTER THOUSANDS OF OTHERS WITH THE SAME PROBABLY IN MODEL YEARS 2014-2017. THE POWER LOCKS WORK FINE, THEN SUDDENLY THE ONE SLIDER WILL NOT OPERATE. THIS IS AN EXPENSIVE REPAIR THAT SHOULD BE ISSUE A RECALL FOR SAFETY ISSUES. I HAVE CONTACTED DODGE CONCERNING THIS ISSUE, WITH NO RESPONSE.

YESTERDAY, I WAS DRIVING STRAIGHT AHEAD AT 25MPH ON LEVEL CITY STREET WITH THE VEHICLE IN "DRIVE." SUDDENLY THE ENGINE ROARED AND REVVED UP BUT THE CAR DID NOT ACCELERATE - IT WAS AS IF THE TRANSMISSION HAD SOMEHOW SLIPPED INTO NEUTRAL. I TOOK MY FOOT OFF THE GAS, LET THE ENGINE SETTLE BACK, AND CAUTIOUSLY APPLIED POWER. THE CAR BEHAVED NORMALLY. HOWEVER, AFTER PARKING AND RUNNING SOME ERRANDS, THE SAME THING HAPPENED ON MY RETURN TRIP HOME. I HAVE NOT USED THE CAR SINCE.

THE ENGINE WON'T SHUT DOWN AFTER BEING DRIVEN. WHEN THE VEHICLE HAS BEEN PARKED, AND PUT INTO PARK, THEN TURN THE KEY OFF, THE VEHICLE IS STILL RUNNING. IT'LL RUN FOR SEVERAL MINUTES, THEN CUT OFF. I'VE TRIED TO PUT THE KEY BACK IN AND TURN IT ON AND THEN OFF, VAN STILL RUNS. I'VE UNHOOKED THE BATTERY TO SEE IF IT WOULD RESET ITSELF. THE PROBLEM STILL EXISTS
