    My van is a 2010 Town and Country. Here is the story of this problem: Three weeks ago, my alternator got ridiculously hot. There was a bundle of wires (a part of the engine harness I think) that was resting against the back of the alternator. The alternator got so hot that it melted the...

    Hey all, I've got a 08 town and country touring with a 3.8. I have a question about alternator field coil testing. Is there a resistance spec for the field coil in the alternator? I'm assuming the coil is independent and measured across the 2 terminals in the connector port. Please correct me if...

    On 5/7/20, I was in a parking lot with the transmission in drive, I let my foot off of the gas to move forward and bang! I thought the engine or transmission seized up. However, the engine was not hot and no warnings were on. I had it towed to the dealer. This van has around 45k miles on it and...

    Does anyone have any brand recommendations for a belt tensioner and idler pulley for a 2007 Dodge Grand Caravan? I've seen CARQUEST by Dayco tensioner and an idler pulley by Litens; a kit by Gates, and a Dayco belt kit that includes a replacement overrunning alternator pulley. Is the alternator...

    Hello all, I'm hoping that you can help me diagnose a charging system issue. My van is a 2005 DGC 3.8, 157,000 kilometers. Yesterday, I went on a long drive (150 kilometers or so) and the van started exhibiting signs of not charging properly on my way home. Battery light, then check engine...

    Getting more power at idle! High Amp alternators are plentiful out there. But as many of you have seen, some of these go for 500 bucks and fail to deliver. SO LETS SHOW YOU How to get more out of your stock machine that you got on there. 1. OVERDRIVE PULLEY Available at summit...

    Battery idiot light came on last week. Wife stopped at Autozone , who told her battery was overcharging. Loose insulation behind alternator was flaked by the serpentine belt,sucked into the alternator over time, clogging it, causing it to overheat and frying the voltage regulator. Take a look...

    Battery is new, alternator is new, belts, pulley's new. PCM was sent out for repair, said it couldn't be repaired due to robot installed chip, didn't give any indication of what was wrong. Car starts and runs, but reading no charge. I have 12 volts at alternator. Here's the funny part...

    Does anyone know the exact voltage that should be coming out of the alternator? 2001 Grand 3.8 ES with Denso unit (new 7 years ago) I have read that somewhere between 13.7v-14.7v is acceptable, but I would like to know what it is supposed to be exactly and if 13.7v is too low for the vehicle...

    Fixed the bad fuel pump relay, fixed the no start relay, installed a new battery, new alternator, new pulley's and belt, battery still not charging. Replaced every single connector on the TIPM to be sure I had good connections. Everything points to bad ECM, but I can't seem to find one and...

    owner's manual doesn't say which one...should i be looking for it under something else?

    Hi guys, I am re-posting something I threw up on the "melted wiring loom thread" as I think it's sliding off topic a bit and probably warrants it's own thread. My issue emanated after the melted wiring incident and having started the car I noticed a number of issues and one cause was the...

    I received the RED battery light on my vehicle and the battery is good. So I believe its the alternator. MAN that thing is TIGHT in the engine bay! Anyone have a video on how to take that out? Looks to me like the radiator needs to come out or its a tough fit to remove underneath. Also, was...

    So this noise started all of a sudden, maybe over the past week and just yesterday and today did it get really loud. 3.8 engine runs fine, getting good gas mileage, no hints of shifting problems with the tranny. However, if you look at my past posts, this is a factory crate engine that I got...

    I have a 1987 Plymouth voyageur 2.6l. Can someone tell me where to find the ecm on it? I crossed the cables when I boosted it and fried a few things, replaced the alternator but although it ran fro a day it seems to keep frying alternators. I am re soldering the instrument cluster and I...

    Good morning. Thanks for having me! My wife was driving to work this morning and at a red light, her van lost power completely! Not even the hazard lights worked. Sudden, no warning lights. No nothing. Like she turned the ignition off and took out the key. I have yet to look at it, but I assume...

    Have a tough one, at least for me... Have a 01GC 3.3L with 140k miles on it. Replaced alternator/generator with reman one ~2 years ago to deal with squeeling ADP. Have used tie wraps in past to adjust wire harnesses away from heat shields and rubbing into edges of parts. Replaced battery...
  19. 4th Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    I've got a squeaky alternator. While trying to get the thing out I found that the EGR valve was in the way. But, the bolts holding the EGR mount to the block seem like they're going to sheer off if I torque them enough. A sticky aluminum kind of thing. For now I just put the alternator back...
