Question about 2006 Dodge Grand Caravan
Parking brake will not engage at all. Had to have front rotors turned down twice in last six months due to warping but dealer states calipers are not sticking. Will have to replace rotors now but ... could the parking brake be locking the calipers causing heat and warp or are they unrelated and how do I fix this? Front end vibration through the wheel while braking = classic rotor warp symptom.
Well first of all just because they can be turned dosent always mean that you should do it, now a days rotors are alot cheaper to just replace them, however whatch where you buy them. in most cases you get what you paid for, Like cheap rotor prices=less life, same for the pads and how hard the driver uses the pedal. and as for the "classic rotor warp" thats not always the case with these newer cars having more movable joints than ever befor, it could be, bad hub bearing,bad lower ball joint...etc....good luck

Are the BACK brakes working? If the front brakes are doing 100% of the stopping, you'll overheat them and warp the rotors in short order. Also - do you have a young driver newly driving the van? Most times when I see repeat rotor warpage it is due to one of these two reasons if there are no mechanical problems with the affected axle brake system.
