Glad I did, cuz today everything is working again. I'm past 2 years of the factory warranty and I've never been tempted by any other car's extended warranty, but I'm seriously considering one for this car. Dealer has been good, always providing a loaner, but I've been in their loaners for several weeks in the past 2 years; it does not augur well...
The factory warranty should be 3 years/36,000 miles, so unless you have more than 36,000 miles, you may still be able to have the dealer check out the problem.

In a Grand Caravan we had, when the analog speedometer quit working the fix was to replace the battery. Seemed a bit crazy at the time, but it solved the problem. Ask the dealer to check the battery while you are there. My Pacifica van's battery was replaced at 28 months under warranty.

Thanks, SciTchr - yes, I'm still under the factory warranty, and I'm getting to know my dealer's service dept. pretty well. <G> Actually, they just replaced both batteries within the past 2 months; they seemed fine to me, but the monthly status report from FCA said they weren't heathy. The dealer confirmed that and replaced them both under warranty. And yes, that does seem crazy, but so much seems crazy these days I'm seldom surprised. It goes back to the dealer Wednesday and we'll see what they cover. Thanks again.
