Question about Dodge Grand Caravan

2 Answers

I have a 2008 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT. About 2 months after purchase, I noticed a whistling sound emanating from the right corner of the dash/windshield when driving 60 mph. The whistle was steadiest when driving into the wind or with a cross wind. Lately, the whistle has became much louder and begins at 55 mph. Sometimes, with a strong cross wind, it will whistle at 20 mph. Any suggestions?

    I also have this problem...Mine seems to do it with strong cross winds or when it is hot outside ( 80 + )...Whistle is louder than you can turn up the radio...Dealer's first solution was to move my roof rack back 6 inches...I told them it is in the dash...Dealer is 20+ miles away from home and I can't seem to get it to them while it is whistling..

Hi, 2possible suggestions that will help you, when dealing with a wind noise it is almost always visible in the affected area by seeing a redich resedue caused by entering dust particles,

you could also use''masking'' duckt tape to seal off all your suspect areas(starting with the r/h section of the windshield) then by trail and error systematically remove piece by piece of this tape untill your noise is located, then you can decide on what to do with the ''leak''

I would first drive it till you notice the whistle then turn you wipers on and see if it stops. I is common for wipers to dry and cause problems like this when setting on the lot. If this does not change the sound while the wipers are on then i wouls start feeling for any kind of air around that area. Could be a small leak in the windshield seal. Anyway if you still have factory warrenty then i would check the wiper then take it to a dealer.
Let me know if this has help.
