  1. Power drivers seat woes

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    Do you know what they did to fix it last time? Was it a binding drive screw? Bad motor? Problem with the switches? I’m on my second T&C, the first one was close to 200,000km when I sold it and this one is around 135,000km right now and neither of them ever had power seat issues. As far as the...
  2. 2012 T&C Power sliding door won't latch when closing

    I don’t have any schematics. My mechanic has them though and he let me look them over. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. 2012 T&C Power sliding door won't latch when closing

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    My 2014 hasn’t had any power sliding door issues... yet. But my 2011 had several. They all ended up being problems with broken wires somewhere in the track. One time I couldn’t even find the break, but knew which two wires it had to be and just replaced them in the harness and the problem went...
  4. Power outlet under hood

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    I always use it when it gets below -15°C out. You really hear a big difference in the engine cranking in cold temperatures to start in the morning when it’s been plugged in. It’s much “friendly” to the engine, especially as it ages. I installed one in my second vehicle as well because it...

  6. Horns: Instant gratification neccessary

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    Looks to me like you’ll be left with no other choice but to: 1) sue Chrysler and make them see the ghastly error of their ways, 2) find another vehicle that doesn’t compromise your specific and obviously very important needs, 3) learn to live with it these major engineering flaws as hundreds...
  7. Transmission slipping after few second driving from cold and back to normal few seconds later.

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    I would start by checking the fluid level again. It’s possible that it’s a bit lower now that you’ve driven it a bit. Lower fluid pressure will certainly cause it to go to neutral. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Transmission slipping after few second driving from cold and back to normal few seconds later.

    Did it start after the transmission service was performed or was the service performed to try and address the problem? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Horns: Instant gratification neccessary

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    So curiosity got the better of me and I’m sure my neighbors think I’m losing my marbles now, but I just went out to “play” with the horns in my vehicles. If I push on the horn, the delay isn’t even measurable. It’s not a full second delay at all, it’s less, it’s just not “instantaneous”. If I...
  10. Horns: Instant gratification neccessary

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    In many States and Provinces it is a legal requirement to have DRL. It’s been proven many times over that it increases safety. I suspect manufacturers are simply complying with that. Why anyone would want to override that is beyond me, unless you’re trying to outrun the law and need your...
  11. tire air leak issue in t&c

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    I guess we’re assuming you’ve driven the vehicle long enough to after the rotation for 1) the TPMS to set itself for the new sensor locations, or 2) to confirm that the leaking tire is somewhere else on the vehicle now? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Help comparing your power lift gate to mine

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    I think you will find that this is normal. I suspect it has to do with the lubrication inside the gas strut. When you open the lift gate some of the gas (and oil) inside the strut moves around the seal of the piston, lubricating the sleeve. If you close it soon’ish afterwards there is plenty of...
  13. Oil Change

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    I also have an Acura MDX and they have asked to see documentation before. I just always bring the folder with me when I go. I don’t use the dealer for anything other than warranty work. Too expensive. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Oil Change

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    As long as you have documentation that shows mileage and that they have used factory recommended oil and filters, I have never had any issues with warranty being denied. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. M34 fuse keeps blowing out

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    If you want to troubleshoot this further, you need to get your hands on the vehicle schematics showing the power distribution from fuse M34. There may be many circuits involved. From there you can isolate each circuit to figure out which one is causing the fuse to burn. Obviously one of them is...
