HiCustomer welcome to Just Answer!.
I believe the parts you're looking for is already furnished as a single package on a recall for this particular model and year. Unfortunately, my info here at home doesn't tell me the recall number or the part number of the package (proprietary info I guess).
Call your local Dodge dealer with a vehicle identification number and they can tell you whether you're eligible for this recall. If not, they might be able to look the recall part package up for you.
I'll be near the shop around 4:00 today and can look the number up for you if you have any problems. If you need the part number sooner, let me know and I'll see what I can do.
One thing more, Poppo...
If you send me the last 8 digits of your VIN I might be able to pull up info here at home. If you're not comfortable with that... that's OK too.
Sorry... it kicked me out. It looks like it will be later rather than sooner.
Just to be sure... this impact sensor you're looking for is located at either of the front corners of the van, just behind the radiator support. They use two-wire connectors.
Sound about right?
Thanks. I have to do the same. My daughter's Altima just shot craps LOL! Talk later,
I apologize, Richard. It looks like the Mopar site I need for this information is partly down for maintenance. Model years between 1999 and 2008 are completely missing. I'm not even able to research your VIN. It looked at first like it was just a problem with accessing the system from the house, but I see the same thing here at the shop.
It will be Monday now before I can find your information unless the site comes back up.
Once again, my aplogies for the delay and will continue to check the web to see if it returns to full capacity.
The recall was G09, involving the potential for water entry into the impact sensor connectors. The package is actually two packages (my bad).
CBX2G091 contains (2) sensors with attaching bolts, all you would need to fix one Caravan.
CBX2G092 is the harness connector/ pigtail repair package. You get only one pigtail per part number, so order two. It comes with crimp connectors and heat shrink tubing.
While we should be good-to-go now, I can't help feeling something else will go wrong. Chrysler can be cranky about selling recall parts over the counter so there may be a problem in obtaining these two part numbers on a cash basis. Don't ask me why...
If you're having troubles finding a dealer that will ship, let me know. It's quite possible I can talk our Parts Department into getting it done. I'll check my JA mail through the day on Monday (well... every day actually) and watch for you to write if there are problems.
Please don't accept this until the parts are on the way, Richard! I feel bad enough that it's taken THIS long and it could get worse. These two part numbers should be available on a normal replacement basis (like what you were trying to do) and we may have to resort to something like that if things really go south.
All the best,
By the way... the Mopar site was back to normal this morning LOL!
