Failure Date: 03/08/2014

The following lights came abs, anti skid, check engine light. The engine started missing then the security indicator light came on and the alarm inside went off. I had no electrical controls. The windows wouldn't roll down, the door locks wouldn't work and then the engine shut off. The outside alarm then went off too. I had to disable the alarm by unhooking the battery cable. I had the car towed in to the dealer and they told me that the car was not communicating with the computer and they had no idea what the problem was. I then called Chrysler and checked to see if there had been a recall of any kind and sure enough my vehicle had the recall# l25. I have never received a recall notice but the gentlemen that I spoke with at Chrysler corp. Said that according to their records the win module had been replaced on my van and that my vehicle had been repaired on 2-7-2012. That never happened!! it is currently being checked out by the Chrysler tech at our local dealer. They said they are only allowed to replace the rubber gasket inside the module and if the module itself is bad I will have to pay for the module. The gentlemen I spoke with at Chrysler corporation told me that the module would be covered at no charge. This is crazy!!! my two young grandsons were in the van when all this happened. Needless to say they were terrified. This problem needs immediate attention. The government needs to get involved here. This is definitely a safety issue!!.

Failure Date: 08/21/2009

We are the original owner of a 2003 Chrysler t & c. In August, 2009, my wife began experiencing problems with the window motor suddenly becoming inoperable for a short period of time, then suddenly working again. One day, as I was driving the van, the check engine light came on. I immediately parked the vehicle. After a few days, the car restarted and the check engine light went off. However, on August 20, the check engine light came on while I was leaving a conference. After less than â½ mile, then van began shuddering, the lights began blinking then the vehicle died. I was traveling at approximately 40 mph when this occurred. The van would not restart, in fact the only thing I received was a click. I had the car towed home and again left alone. This time, the when I turned the key, the response was just a click. Also, there was an electrical drain that caused me to replace two batteries. In order to keep this from recurring, I disconnected the negative post. After checking and replacing the starter as well, I had it towed to a facility who confirmed the problem was a bad pcm. The cost to remedy this was $750.

I had the same problem with the engine light coming on. I was also told that battery acid was leaking on the wiring harness that cause the problem. Also Chrysler was aware of this problem and did not have a recall or let owners know. . They just redesigned newer model to correct this problem at the mercy of their dealers to charge thousands of dollars to make repairs.

Failure Date: 07/16/2007

The 2004 Chrysler town and country check engine light came on and the engine was running rough, especially in idle. The odometer reading was 37,500, the vehicle was 3. 5 years. Old, and it has a 3. 8 liter engine. A Chrysler dealer ran a diagnostic check and determined that new spark plugs and wires were needed. Also, some computer codes may need to be reset. Cost would be $350. I bought the parts and installed them myself. I replaced many spark plugs in the old days and these were the worst looking plugs I have ever seen. The tips of the electrodes were severely rounded off on all 6 plugs. I owned Chrysler/Plymouth minivans since 1984 and only remember replacing spark plugs once, and probably @ a high mileage. Champion warrants their platinum plugs for 5 years. Chrysler's maintenance schedule says to replace spark plugs and wires @ "100,000 miles". Something must be wrong with this engine.

Failure Date: 11/05/2002

Van engine dies at any time without any sputtering or warning, like someone turned off the ignition. Will start right up again as soon as I put transmission in neutral and turn key. Often when driving the engine will jerk real hard like I just drove over a speed bump, but engine does not kill. The engine light flashes for a second. Dealer says nothing shows on computer so theres nothing he can do. Chrysler in detroit was called and said the same thing. They were no help at all. I have almost been hit from behind several times due to this problem. I see others have had the same problem posted also. Happens about once every two weeks or so. It seems if the dealers computer doesn't give them a code they are lost and can't do anything to help. It's a very frustrating and dangerous situation to be in!.
