  1. Belt Tensioner/Idler Pulley Brand Recommendations?

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    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...

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000

  5. Remove insulation / save your alternator!!

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    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...
  6. 2011 T&C not charging

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    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...
  7. Exact Alternator Voltage???

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    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...

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    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...

  10. PCM or Alternator?

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    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...
  11. 2013 Touring L Flex Fuel Alternator needed

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    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...
  12. 2010 T&C Engine Noise ~ Alternator or Pulley?

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    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...
  14. 2004 Chrysler Town & Country Electrical

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    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...

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    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...
  16. Ever break a bolt in the block?

    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...

  18. Alternator issues

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    On the way home this morning I started smelling a burning electrical smell (seems to be intermittent). I was wondering if it was the blower motor. But upon further inspection the wiring to the resistor and blower motor seems to be intact. Getting voltage to the motor through all selections of...

  20. Which Alternator for 2005 Grand Caravan?

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    I recently bought a 05 Grand Caravan to replace my wife's 2000 (RIP 202,000 - 2nd bad transmission + rust) Voyager. It has 120,000 miles on it and is fairly loaded with the rear heat/AC, CD/DVD, Power seat etc. The belt area is making a "whine-y/click-y" noise all the time. Isolating it with a...
