 Description of the problemI bought the dodge june 1998, from the first month i have had problems. I had both front side windows fall down, wiper blade linkage breaks, engine surges, door lights won't come on, the air conditioning blower/motor shorted out, and the interior lights/tv/vcp/cd player will shut off at times. Everything except the interior equipment has been corrected, they still short out. The problem with electrical shorts has expanded. On the way home from vacation just outside of st. Louis on interstate 44, we were passing a diesel truck going about 70 mph with another diesel truck following us when the engine shuts off. Lucky for us the truck behind us was paying attention. The truck came within inches of hitting us, if it did my whole family could have been killed. My son managed to pull the van over to the side of the road. We had aaa tow the van to a dodge dealer in bourbon, mo. The next day the machanic found the problem. The asd 20amp fuse blew, the asd fuse is located uder the hood in the power distribution center. The asd fuse handles engine controls/fuel pump. The dealership in burbon could not find the problem, but he did give us extra fuses to get us home. We had to stop at walmarks to buy extra fuses. On the way home the asd fuse blew out 4 times. When we got back home, i took the van back to the dealer where i bought it for repair, cumberland valley motors, they answered with their stock quote, unable to duplicate at this time. I don't know if the asd fuse blew out due to engine heat, bad wiring, or if the interior control panel which handles the interior lights/tv/vcp has a short in it. The vehicle is dangerous to drive and if i have this problem, then their might be other dodge vans with the same problem. How many accidents happened already or will happen?
