Caravan/Town & Country Electrical Problems

    Please help!!! My battery keeps going dead! Had battery replaced, continued to die. Had new battery checked, was told that the battery was fine. Used a gage, checked the fuses, the iod (ignition off draw fuse) was drawing off of the battery, when ignition was off! Thought that was the problem, so pulled the fuse. In the morning, put in fuse, battery was dead! Now it sounds as though battery is boiling! This is a brand new interstate battery! I am currently out of work with a back injury and need this fixed promptly and cheaply to get to my appointments! When the car is running, everything is fine, all systems work. Please advise!

    You need to figure out which circuit (fuse) is drawing the excessive current. Once you have that narrowed down, you need to determine which module or load on that circuit is the culprit.

    You can use an ammeter or an oscilloscope with a current probe to trace the current flow. You could also measure the voltage drop across each fuse in the fuse panel when the van is supposed to be off. This last measurement can be tricky because of the low (millivolts or less) voltages involved.

    Help please its cold out side.

    I have a 1997 Chrysler town and country LXi
    3.8 motor

    My blower fan was making some noise awhile back and has now went out.
    So i replaced the motor and the fan it self. Still don't work.

    I replaced the Relay in the fuse box under the hood and still nothing.

    I replaced the resistor under the hood on fire wall passenger side.Still don't work.

    I'm out of ideas here, I keep getting told to test this or that but i haven't got a tester nor do i even know how to run one if i did.

    Here a re a few other things going wrong with my van,
    #1 My Air bag light is on and my cruise and horn don't work. I suspect the Lock Ring is shot.

    #2 My car will start and then shut off 3 seconds later. And act like it out of gas. Gauges will read nothing.

    #3 I'm driving and all the gauges will just shut off. i smack the dash and they pop back on.

    #4. My door lock will unlock and lock back up on there own. i have to pull the battery cable at night so they don't unlock and somebody steals my stuff inside while i sleep.

    I was told this stuff is because of the body control module is going bad.
    Not sure what or were this is.

  • I have a 2006 T/C with the delux enterainment system. 6 disc DVD player, and 1st round of navigation, and such. The other day the entire system will not power up. Nothing on the flat screen, nothing on the display screen, no radio, no TV and nothing.

    My family and I actually have to talk with one another now... (The iphones fix that sometimes) but any ideas on what is going on? Would love a simple fuse or relay fix.
