We bought our 05 Chrysler Town & Country in Feb of '08. The dealership had to finish detailing it, so the next day they delivered it to me at work. That day my wife came and picked the van up from me and drove though town. She immediately noticed all the dash lights, air bag, check engine etc, flickering on the dash. When the lights would flicker, the radio also cut out and the seatbelt reminder "ding" would sound. She took it straight to the dealership who then put a code scanner on it, and said it was okay to drive, we needed to bring it back the next day when they had time. Long story short, the first thing they replaced was the battery and said it was fixed. About a week later the new battery completely died, the van would not start unless it was jumped, we even put a battery charger on it for 8hrs. Took it back to the dealership, this time they replaced the battery and the body control module. Again, we were told it was fixed. From the moment we picked it up from dealership the check engine light stayed on. We called the dealership, they said bring it back tomorrow. We went the next day and again they said bring it back tomorrow. Finally when they "had time" 2 days later, we took the van back up. After 45min or so they said the egr valve needed to be replaced, it was stuck open allowing too much oxygen into the fuel. But this time they were not going to pay to fix it. Mind you had only had the van for not even 30 days. After a lot of fighting with both the service and the sales dept, they did fix and we didn't have to pay for it. Here we are a month and a half later, and its doing the same thing again! now what, they fought us last time to fix it. . .
