    I have a 2001 TC Limited with 153k in good shape for its age. Recently, I've had a strange electrical issue that only appears (and does so reliably) when it is raining at least moderately hard. The following happens: Gauges stop working compass/outside temp sensor stops working cd player says no...
  2. Headlight turns itself on

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    In the middle of the night, engine off, keys out of the ignition, the left headlight/tail light have started cycling themselves on/off. To get it to quit, I removed the under hood relays and fuses. This morning I checked the relays under the dash, and the left bottom one (if you're kneeling on...

  4. BCM Segments - All or None?

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    I do well enough with wrenching, but when it comes to electrical I'm less handy. Is the BCM broken up into segments, such as one for turn signals, one for power door locks, one for windows, etc.? If so, can a single segment be swapped out? Being on limited income, a $125 part (new BCM) is pretty...

    A week ago, while driving, I noticed some static on the radio, then the radio went dead, then the ABS panel warning light went on, then the windshield wipers turned themselves on, then the headlights went out and it started shifting rough. Clear that it was running only on battery, I limped to...

    My wife was driving our 2010 Town & Country (3.8L V6, 83K miles) when the headlights each started to blink on and off and both finally quit while she was driving. Fortunately she was able to turn on the fog lights and hazards to get to a safe place. Upon restarting, the lights worked again, but...
  11. Button lights/illumination

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    I'm wondering if the buttons for cruise control on the steering wheel are supposed to illuminate when the lights are on ( Like the radio buttons do)? Also the buttons for the windows/locks on the drivers door panel. Can't see them at night !!!!! How would you fix that issue?

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    I have a 2005 T&C. Had a 6 disc DVD changer that didn't work so I replaced it with a single DVD player, it now plays the DVD, as I can hear the audio, but the screen does nothing. When I disconnect the screen and then reconnect it I do get the screen to light up for a second and then goes blank...
  15. ABS light on, other electronic schenanigans

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    My 1996 Grand Caravan 3.8L is pulling electronic schenanigans with some things working but other things not. Here's the sequence: 1) Changed the air filter. 2) Afterward it ran rough, missing; especially at low speed or in reverse. But smoothed out after 100 miles or so; I assume because the...
  16. Caravan Turn Signal blinking quickly

    4th. Generation Chrysler Minivans: 2001-2007
    Hi, I own a 2001 Grand Caravan. Recently the left turn signal began to blink quickly. I initially checked the flashing bulb in the headlight compartment (the rear blinking appeared normal - quicker on the left side, but equally bright). It was flashing but not as brightly as the right front...
  17. Angels in the Electronics

    3rd Generation Chrysler Minivans: 1996-2000
    For the twelve years that I've had my 1996 LE, there have been glitches in the electronics. At widely interspersed times, the rear window wiper will turn itself on, or the radiator cooling fans when the ignition is off. Twice the instrument panel went dark, fixed by switching off the ignition...
