Failure Date: 01/25/2014

I was driving down the highway at 65 mph and my lights went out. I had both hands on the steering wheel so I didn't touch any button. I did have the automatic high beam feature turned on. Was extremely scary as I could not see anything when the lights went out as it was pitch dark outside. I braked hard and after several seconds the lights came back on. I was so lucky I did not go off the road as I could not see anything without the headlights. My family and I could have been killed. Very dangerous. Please issue a recall. I see on google that others have experienced the same issue.

The headlights dim, the radio stops, the four lights directly over the speedometer come on and off, the speedometer drops to zero when the dummy lights come on. Periodically the vehicle shuts of as it is moving. This all started happening after the NHTSA campaign #11v139000 recall on the ignition was replaced. It has been to three separate Chrysler dealers a total of seven times. It has been out of service for more than 30 days. Neither Chrysler nor the dealer wants to resolve this problem. They want to sell me a new car!.

Failure Date: 09/28/2013

We were exiting a parking lot and pulling out onto a main road when the horn started honking, the windshield wipers started full speed (both front and back with constant wiper fluid), the interior lights flashed, all the interior warning lights were on, and the headlights shut off. We pulled into the next parking lot & turned the van off, but the horn kept going off for at least 5 minutes along with the wiper, lights, etc. We started it up again with the same results. We were so thankful we were not on the highway yet as we could easily have been killed! we left the van in a nearby parking lot for the night and tried to take it to a dealership the next morning, but they didn't have any open appts till later this week. I'm not sure I could ever feel safe driving this vehicle again as I've read a lot of the same complaints about this make/model/year and it seems like it keeps happening without warning. This is very dangerous & I don't feel safe driving my children around in it!.

Headlights did not come on at night after starting engine. This has happened multiple times over the past several months. It is intermittent and the lights will be normal for a week or two or three and then the problem occurs again. Several hours or the next morning after a problem all is normal. Sometimes after starting the headlights flash on and off. We are afraid to be away from home at night in this van. After reading the numerous similar complaints and considering the safety implications with this problem I am amazed that there has been no recall.

Driving and suddenly the headlights start flickering on and off and bright and dim. It was happening individually, so one light may be on and the other one off. Finally they both stopped and it was only the parking lights and fog lights working. Nothing would make them work. Drove later that same night and it was fine until I turned my lights on bright. Wife almost had a wreck when the lights went completely out and would not come back on. Chrysler needs to identify this problem and recall or extend free repairs for this ASAP before a fatal accident.

My headlights started giving me problems in the winter. First, I noticed that they flickered when I hit a bump, and then went completely off. If I put on the brights they would work. It never happened again until recently. They went completely off for the entire 2 hour drive. I had to hold the brights on to see. Now they don't even come on at all except for the brights. I stopped at Chrysler and he seemed to have no idea what I was talking about. There needs to be a recall after so many complaints. Its dangerous.

Low beam headlights fail to come on. This is a great safety hazard. If you pull the high beam switch the high beams do come on and stay on as long as the switch is held back. You can also just turn on the high beams.

The headlights failed while driving my 2010 t&c van at night. Dealer determined the tipm module to be defective. There are over 300 of these modules on back order in the USA. This has been a known problem of headlight failure while driving the t&c van since about 2006. The dealer could not provide me a date the replacement module would be available, but I had to pay $663. 89 up front for them to order it. The headlights will not work at all now with this defective module. I now have a day time, clear day only van since my state required headlights when driving in the rain.
