Sub: p25nhtsa 14v-234 rear quarter vent window switch we received a safety recall notice a few months ago that stated, ?Chrysler has detected that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in some 2010 through 2014 model year Dodge grand caravan and Chrysler Town & Country vehicles. ? my vehicle falls within the scope of this problem. We contacted arrigo of west palm beach on April 9, 2015 to schedule an appointment to get the vehicle repaired and was informed that ?the part was on backorder and I would be contacted when the part came in. ? it has been five months now and they have still not received the required parts as of September 1, 2015. As stated in the safety recall letter, if the dealer fails or is unable to remedy this defect without charge and with in a reasonable time, I may submit a written complaint to the administrator, national traffic safety administration. ? we do not understand why it has taken five months or possibly longer for a dealer to receive a safety recall part, so that this safety hazard may be repaired as well as my peace of mind. The problem as stated, ?the rear quarter vent window switch on your vehicle may overheat if exposed to liquid moisture. An overheated rear quarter vent window switch may cause a burning odor, smoke, or a driver's door fire without warning. ? I am very concerned for my family's safety because we live in florida and it is very moist here especially during hurricane season. The longer it takes to receive the correct part and fix this issue creates higher safety risk for my family. Thank you for your time and please help us resolve this issue promptly.

I have researched this with people at work and on online internet forums to find out this is a recurring problem with Chrysler power windows in their vans. I am going to replace the motor myself as it seems the dealerships are taking full advantage of this and charging very high replacement repairs.

The front left window does not work. I have heard that Chrysler vehicles have this problem my nephew's Jeep also had this problem and it is expensive to repair. There must be a defect in the window motor, please advise.

Front driver side window on 2002 Chrysler town and country stop rolling up. I reviewed owner comments from a website on how to get the window to roll up, which was by slamming the door while holding the button in the up position. Need to do it numerous times to get it to roll up. . Read more...
Window regulator doesn't work.
Driver's side power window will roll down, but fails to come back up. Sometimes, it will come up in small increments. But, usually, I have to wait a long time for it to work. If it's raining and the window is accidentally opened, it is difficult to get back up if driving on the highway, causing a potentially dangerous situation and also potentially getting things inside the vehicle wet that shouldn't get wet.
Windows will open but will only go up in intermittent cycles, moving inches at a time or not at all when pushing the button; have to wait minutes to get it to move only inches. Becomes a major problem when it is raining. Been ongoing for last two years. Started as just driver's side window, but within last year started on passenger side; however, do not have the $400 per window to fix!.
I bought a used 2001 Chrysler town and country lx van,on 04/04/2004 I have had a lot of problems with the drivers side power window. It will go down all the time,bet 99% of the time it comes up 1/4 to 1/2 in. At a time and takes about 1/2 hour to get it all the way up. Chrysler wants $300. 00 dollars to replace it,but I read and get told that this happens to almost all Chrysler and Dodge and Plymouth vans. And even if you fix it chances are it will stop working soon after. This is not right that Chrysler can sell vans and make money off of the bad motors they put in the windows. I get wet if it rains if I for get and run the window down. And I freeze in the winter some times because it won,t come up. Also the timing go,s bad on the front wiper motor a lot and the arms cross over each other and brakes the blades. They know about all this and won,t own up to it. Chrysler needs to be made to fix there junk. I paid good money for the van and im tired of them making out that they don,t no about this problem just so they can make money off of us.
The drivers side window goes down but won't come up. This appears to be happening to literally thousands of town and country minivan owner.
Driver side power window will not go down right now. Window has been used less than 10 times. I had a previous Town & Country with same problem. When window did go down it would not go back up. It will have to go into the dealer for service.
The drivers side and passenger side windows in my 2003 Chrysler town and country have fallen into the door multiple times without warning or during use. The first time was the driver's side as I was leaving work and it was 15 degrees out. The window fell into the door. The second time was the passenger window and it fell out while no one was in the vehicle and it was parked in a very urban downtown area. As I was leaving work I approached my vehicle and noticed the window was gone. I opened the van and could tell it had fallen into the door while I was working that day. The last time I was in the van and I heard a loud snap and my husband who was outside the van opened the door to see what had happened and could tell the window was going to fall. The failure is apparently in the window actuator or something. The dealer has had to replace these parts. It is currently in the shop for the 3 occurrence and we have asked to keep the old part.

I had to replace the motor in the driver's side window of my Chrysler 2001 town and country. The window would go down but would not go up except in increments of an inch or two. My nephew also has a Chrysler town and country. He also had this problem and did the same repair. Both now work. I waited almost a year before replacing the motor because it was intermittent.
I was reading about the problems drivers are having with their driver side window not going up all the way. We had to have the motor replaced in our drivers door and shortly before that, my nephew who also owns a 2001 Chrysler van, also had to replace the motor in his driver's door.
Driver and passenger power window motor failures. They worked off and on several months before the actual complete failure. Often not rolling up in the rain, extreme heat, and high ozone days creating heath dangers and major driving distractions to children and adult passengers. Chrysler needs to recall these window motors. There are several websites with hundreds of owners complaining of the same problem. It is bad business for Chrysler to continue to lie and cover this up. The replacement parts are extremely over priced considering the obvious defect. Chrysler needs to be held accountable for this and other defects that seem to be overwhelming the majority of town and country owners.
Driver side power window malfunction. Usually goes down okay but closes a small movement at a time (usually the longer duration between trying the further the window will close).
Intermittently the windshield wipers stopped working. The problem has occurred fifty times in a year and a half. The dealer had examined the wipers. The left front window was inoperative, the regulator assembly was replaced.

Driver's side power window fails. There is a moisture problem (leak?) in the front doors of the Chrysler town and country Mini-van. Ours has failed twice, there is a mildew-ish odor when the window is put down. We have discussed this with other owners of the same vehicle and they have had similar problems. This is an on-going problem.
While driving passenger's side window cracked and blew in and out, resutling in injuries to driver and passenger. Contacted dealer. Consumer stated that injuries to child that was who was sitting in the rear seat.
The flimsy plastic clips that hold the windows to the track of the power door windows are a hazard. They brake extremely easy and could leave a person trapped inside the car in a event of not being able to open the door. Our van is currently disabled to the plastic retainer clip braking. As an engineer myself I am appalled at the poor design. I'm sure the design was cheap to manufacture, but its totally incapable of surviving any stress. ****dimsii ivoq entry posted after 12/12/02 cut over to artemis***761559.

Exiting highway at 30 mph when rain started. Attempted to engage electric control button to raise drivers side window; window jammed about one inch from top. Pushed control button again but window did not move. Within about 20 to 30 seconds smoke began entering interior of car from under the control buttons panel; also distinct odor of burning plastic and/or rubber started coming from inside my left front drivers door panel. Smoke and acrid fumes became very strong as I pulled over and stopped. I threw open my door, got out and immediately used my always present ratchet screwdriver to remove the control button cover and was able to disconnect the two electric plugs which I observed and luckily within about 2-3 minutes the smoke ended. About thirty minutes later I restarted my car and drove immediately to my dealers servive center. After about three hours the service mgr. Informed me that a short circuit in the electrical system had taken place and had "fried" several of the computers within the system. As I had purchased the extended service contract, I was told that the repairs were totally covered. It was overheard by me when the mechanic was speaking to the svce. Mgr. That their was evidence of water within the inner door and also in and around the control buttons on the inside. Is it possible that the real problem is with body design which allows rain water to somehow leak into the interior of the drivers door unnoticed and therby causing this emergency? perhaps the electrical system is ok but not the channeling away of rain water or even car wash water. Also, when they repair the electrical components on my car, do I have to worry about this happening again whenever it rains? I really could have been seriously injured or killed as well as other people near me on the road had the smoke and fumes overcome me before I had the chance to pull off the road.
