  1. 2005 Grand Caravan Not Charging

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    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...
  2. Now battery dies when van turns off. Advice?

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    I was fixing little issues with the van but now I'm not even sure what to do. Some history - The van has a leak in the radiator. The radiator relay fans no longer come on. I checked them on a new relay and it didn't do anything. I wrote on this post. I'm still working on figuring that out...
  3. 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...
  4. Fuel pump question

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    I've already posted this on another thread, but no one has responded (either because they don't pay attention to the thread, they're looking up the answer, I dunno), so just to be safe, I'm posting a new thread for a question about a fuel pump. (If this is against the rules, I'll take it down...
  5. Can I get away with 525 CCA in mild climate?

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    I'm in California. It's 87F as I type and it won't snow this winter, though it does get near freezing on our coldest days. My 800 CCA battery is in the lower-right. It died with just less than 1 year on the pro-rated warranty. The only battery in-store is in the top left. It comes with 2 years...
  6. Dead Battery 12 times- Buyback

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    My 2013 Chrysler Town and Country has been at the dealer for almost a month now. Every 4 days the battery dies. They ran test and diagnostics and the battery is fine, so they claim. They charge it and on the clock every 4 days it dies. They replaced the wireless ignition module twice and...
  7. Remote Troubleshooting Help Needed

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    My 2005 Town and Country has two six button remotes. One of the remotes stopped working. The other still works fine. I've replaced the battery in the non-working remote, but that did not resolve the problem. Is there any troubleshooting/repair I can do on a remote, or is this a non-serviceable...

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    I'm going to Europe for about two months and will be storing my vehicles (in my garage). Wondering who makes the best trickle charger to keep the batteries in good shape while I'm gone.
  9. 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...
  10. Battery drain, intermittent wiper activation

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    The battery drained in recent days while car was not being driven. It had just been recharged at a store. Then I drove around a little and parked for several days. Battery's under warranty. Sometimes I'd play the radio briefly, with the ignition key in accessory position. The last two times that...

    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...
  12. Town & Country Fire Issue

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    Hey Folks, This past weekend my brother's garage caught on fire. It, along with the contents, we're totally destroyed. Since it was an attached garage, the house has suffered a lot of smoke and water damage. Their 2012 Town & Country was in the garage, and it seems that it might have been the...
  13. Help - Battery died and radio / clock won't come back on

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    Hello, I have a 1996 T & C and recently have had battery problems (have to replace it). The battery died on us since we hadn't driven it in a week, so I attached a battery charger and everything worked fine except for the radio and clock.

    Hi folks.. Battery warning indicator yesterday, then MIL and other lights coming on (ABS, traction control, emergency brake!), engine in limp mode, AC blwoing full heat, etc, today. Checked the battery voltage: 11.8 volts at power off, dropping to 11.0 at start position and down to 8 volts when...
  15. A whole host of issues, any help please!

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    I've now read through about 18 pages of the threads and not seen what just took place last night. I have a'97 T & C that just passed 200k miles and I apparently made the mistake of boasting about that a bit. Now all heck broke loose at one time. I've had a brake squealer acting up now for...

  17. Factory Battery Failed After Only 15 Months?

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    Today my T&C had to be jumped after refueling. It was about 100 degrees and I'd been driving in traffic. Borrowed one of those booster thingys and had to let it charge the vehicle battery for about 5 minutes before it would turn over. Once it cranked it started immediately. Seems hard to...
  18. Strange Start!

    Vehicle Electrical Components
    My 2003 Town and Country engine starts sluggishly...as if the battery is weak. (It is not...had it checked at AutoZone) Then the gauge needles (speed, RPM) all swing all the way to max and then return to normal. Then, and only then, the dash lights come on. None of this happens if the car is...
  19. 08 with wierd electical issue

    5th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2008-2019
    The issue started with the engine occassionally not starting. After a jump start, it seemed fine for a week or so. Then it started to occur more frequently. We have had the battery and alternator checked, OK. After the last time it wouldn't start, I charged the battery. After 2 hours, I...

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    My wife was driving our 2002 T & C about a 1/4 mile from the house it stalled. It won't restart. No crank from starter or anything. Power to lights, flashers , etc, just nothing with the engine. I seem to remember having this problem about 2 years ago and dealer replaced the PCM. I can't believe...
