Question about 2007 Dodge Caravan SXT Minivan New Cars

Failure of power door locks

The car is a 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan.  The toggle switches on either of  the doors do not work.  The key fob causes the lights to blink and the horn to beep however the locks do not respond.  The diagram on the inside cover of the fuse/relay cabinet is of no help. Thank you for any hint of where the problem may be.

    This is rsney to say the diagram inside the cover of the fuse/relay unit is not showing me the power window relay or do you know what designates that relay.            Thank you,   Bob

    I have the same problem. The fuse is not blown but if I take it out and put it back in the door locks work for a while again. Although the doors still do not lock on their own when going over 15 mph.

There is a bug in their body control module software. This event will typically rear it's ugly head after 40,000 miles. I'm hearing that simply updating the BCM software will fix the problem. Only a dealer can do this. And you thought MicroSoft was bad. NTSB will wait until someone dies before addressing this problem.

It is likely that it is a relay.... one for remote or the power doors. you may want to check the fuse/relay panel located in the engine compartment near the battery.

Power door lock on driver side has stop working

The problem is most likely the switch/plunger .
You will need to take off the door panel and look inside, with an electrical tester, and see what has failed.
The switch/plungers are quite cheaply made, and fail often.
God bless your efforts.
