Chrysler Town & Country owners have reported 102 problems related to ignition module (under the electrical system category).
I purchased this car two years ago with a limited mile warranty. A month later the ignition module went, we are constantly taking the car to have breaks front and back and rotors repaired every month on the vehicle. We were given a false carfax report as well. If that wasn't enough there was a faulty spark plug which cost me 800. 00 to remove the head gasket to replace the plugs that were never replaced and had dry rotted. This occurred in July of 2017 after I spent 3k in rental cars to get to and from work. On 8/4/2017 the thermostat blew which cost 200. 00 to repair now the catalyct converter is gone and on 8/5/2017 the car was acting possessed. I came outside side to start the vehicle and noticed the windshield wipers were going off and the car smelt as if it were burning. They keys were not in the vehicle. I need help I have a family size of 6 with small children that ride in this unsafe vehicle every day. It is our only means of transportation to and from work and additionally I pay a monthly car payment of $410. 00 not including insurance.

The engine of my 2010 Chrysler town and country shut off while traveling on the highway at a speed of approximately 60mph. It has happened two other times at lower speeds while in town. The issue left me and my family in danger of a highway collision. This problem appears to be with the ignition switch spontaneously dropping into accessory mode which matches a recall for the same issue in other town and country's very close to the date of manufacture of mine. That recall was 14v373. My van was manufactured four months after the recall window relating to the ignition switch issue which subsequently disables the airbags and other safety equipment. The specific part that was the issue in 14v373 and what I believe to be the issue here is the win module.
The contact's wife owns a 2007 Chrysler town and country. While the contact's wife was driving, the vehicle stalled without warning. The vehicle was unable to be restarted and the security indicator illuminated. The vehicle was towed to armory garage cdjrf (926 central Ave, albany, NY 12205 (518) 641-7777) where it was diagnosed that the wireless ignition module and the key needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 101,776.

The contact owns a 2009 Chrysler town and country. While driving 25 mph, the traction control indicator illuminated and the vehicle stalled. The contact stated that the vehicle was able to restart on the first attempt. The vehicle was taken to the local dealer (milne's auto group, 1900 s cedar st, imlay, michigan, 48444), but the failure could not be duplicated or diagnosed. It was confirmed that the ignition module was replaced in 2012. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was made aware of the failure and recommended that the vehicle be taken to another dealer for a second opinion. The contact was referred to NHTSA; however, no additional assistance was offered. The contact mentioned that the failure occurred in the past; however, it went away until recently. The failure mileage was approximately 90,000.

At a slow speed of about 5 to 10 mph, my vehicle would shut off leaving me with no power brakes, power steering, and in the path of cars behind me almost hitting me as well. It always happens when I am turning left or right at a slow speed. I have had the wireless ignition control module, battery, and key fob replaced already by the dealer.
Van would not start from it's parking place at a car wash. Message came up "accessory or ignition on". I had it towed to an auto repair shop. Diagnosed as failure of the tipm (total integrated power module). This shut down all power to the vehicle including fuel pump, computer, steering, engine, and whatever else. Good thing it was parked when it failed, for had I been driving I would not have had any control of the vehicle, according to the mechanic.

While driving down a busy 5 lane road around rush hour with my three children in the vehicle, the town and country lost power. Twice. This caused me to have to avoid other cars and find a way to restart the vehicle to ensure we did not cause an accident. When we had the van checked out, it was found that we had a faulty wireless ignition module (win module). This part was replaced in my make and model vehicle under a recall by Chrysler, but we were informed that our VIN did not match those manufactured in the time period attributed to the recall. We are requesting that Chrysler expand the recall of the win module to include the full model year. This was a very scary incident for my family, and with it being an identified problem already, I find it hard to swallow that we were forced to pay to replace a part Chrysler knew to be faulty.
While driving along, the vehicle shuts off. The key is in the still ignition, and I am able to put the vehicle in the neutral position and restart the vehicle. Between my wife and this event has occurred at least eight times since the vehicle was purchased. In each case the vehicle was in motion, and the shutoff has occurred on city streets as well as the highway. My 1st occurrence happened while I was turning right. I believe that the wireless ignition node(win) module is the cause of the shutoffs but it may be caused by a problem with the fuel system. Regardless of the cause, the engine shutting down while moving is a safety issue and dangerous. The appropriate recalls are: l02, l25 and r03.
I am a 29 year old male. I am severely disabled (quadriplegic). I drive a modified 2008 Chrysler t&c van with special steering and brake controls and a wheel chair lift. I have owned and driven my van 3 years. It has been extremely well maintained. It must be a safe and reliable vehicle because of my special needs and physical limitations. It is the only vehicle on the planet that I can drive. About a month ago, I took my van into chris myers Chrysler, daphne, al, where they replaced my ignition switch and key fob per safety recall #14v373000. On fri July 15, 2016, I went to drive my van to the grocery store. I pressed the door open button on my newly provided key fob and the van immediately went berserk. Just about every electrically powered device on the van exploded into operation - all at the same instance - wiper blades on ultra high speed, rear window washer spewing fluid, horn blasting, fan motors roaring - and on and on! confined to my wheelchair, there was nothing I could do to stop the craziness from the van. All the neighbors in my apartment complex were now out in the parking lot witnessing all the outrageous things the van was doing. I eventually had to get the hood open and disconnected the battery to put a stop to the vehicle self destructing. With a friends help (a friend with some vehicle mechanic expertise), we checked all fuses - all were okay. We were not able to start the van - the van was completely "dead"! my friend manages an auto parts store in gulf shores, al, and knows the service manager at gulf Chrysler, foley, al. As soon as my friend described the situation, the foley service manager asked if the recall had been accomplished and said it was related to the recall. The next morning, my towing service towed my van to nearby chris myers Chrysler. Their service manager has presented me a $1k bill to replace a module.

On 3/7/16, 3 days following the recall repair for the win module we had done on 3/4/16, after starting the car and beginning to drive in my church parking lot, all of the dash lights lit up, the car started chiming as if I didn't have my seatbelt on, the wipers engaged, and the mph and rpm gauges dropped to zero. It continually repeated. I attempted to pull into a parking space, turn off and removed key from ignition. Restarted car, and problem persisted. I repeated this again with the problem still persisting. I pulled into a gas station, turned car off, removed key, and exited vehicle. When I restarted the car the problem had stopped. Two days later on 3/8/16 I started my car for work and as soon as I put the car in reverse the same problem started. Shut the car off, removed key, and restarted. . . Still occurring. Shut the car off, removed key, exited vehicle, restarted, still occurring. . . I proceeded to drive down the road after exiting my driveway and took a video of this problem repeating continually until a mile down the road, I pulled over into an empty parking lot, shut the car off, removed key, opened and shut the door, and let it sit for 3-5 minutes before restarting, and the problem no longer occurred. My husband called the dealership, greenwood auto in cortland, OH to tell them what was happening, and all they said that it wasn't from them repairing the win module. I find this extremely unsafe, and hard to believe this is just a coincidence as this has never happened before prior to having the recall repair done. I do not have pictures but I do have a video. Chrysler customer service now says I have to pay a Chrysler dealership for a diagnosis of this new problem, how convenient that is.

I took my car in for a recall on an ignition win module recall. The car was given back to me with several electrical issues and is now very unsafe to drive. Dealer replaced the part 4x now says its my issue!! my car was working properly when it was given to the dealer and was not returned to me in the same condition. The dealer experienced and witnessed this issue and says they cant find anything wrong with it. The only way they will help me is if I pay. My car will randomly light up the dash like I just turned it on, wipers go on by themselves, I have no dials on the dash they all bottom out to zero so I have no idea how fast im going, my turn signals and head lights go on and off, even in the dark! my car doesnt register in park so my doors wont open. After I take the key out it will light up as if key is in it and its not. Not safe for driving but I have no other options at this point! attached is a link to show a video of just a small bit of the issues with my van since part replacement. . Read more...

Received written notification of wireless ignition node module recall (r03/NHTSA 14v-373) in June 2015. I called freedom Chrysler/Toyota of harrisburg, PA on 7/1/15 to schedule the recall service. The part needed to be ordered. I have called again on 9/18/15, 3/26/16 and 10/10/16. The part is still not available from Chrysler. The dealer explains they are "at Chrysler's mercy. " why is this "important safety recall" taking over 16 months to resolve?.
