Tipm, I have had tons of problems with my van since I purchased. There is no telling how much I have spent of the years on repairs. Come to find out most of my repairs were not necessary. They all came from the faulty tipm. I can't believe this has not been recalled. The issue it causes is unbelievable. The stress and inconvenience this has caused me and my family is more than I could ever imagine. I'm out thousands of dollars on repair bills and now I find out that it will be another $1,300 to fix this. I have been having issues for years!!! when I would take it in they would treat the symptoms not the problem which I'm just finding out is the tipm. If this would have been properly diagnosed while under warranty than no big deal, but of course it was not. I have been driving and all of a sudden by brakes don't work, I turn on the van start to drive and it won't shift I have to pull over and turn off the van then restart it. Sometimes it wont start just sits there like it wants to start. The fuel pump is now constantly running. I'm sure that's not safe at all. The engine hours are twice what the mileage says it should be. Hum guess that's cause my engine is running all the time. That would be because the tipm is flawed.

I haven't reached 50,000 miles yet but my fuel injector has gone bad. While driving my engine light came on then the car started to vibrate. I checked the manual and it didn't help. I've called several to the location closes to me and the location I brought it from. I have not received any information on the problem.

Failure Date: 05/16/2017

2014 Chrysler town and country - 70,000 miles electronics started malfunctioning while driving shutting off all inside cabin electronics including panel, radio, a/c and turning on windshield wipers. At first it did not malfunction every time but now it doesn�t run 1 minute without malfunctioning. Sometimes my brake, head and signal lights will not work and the complete panel and gages will not go back up including gas, speed rpm etc. Until I shut down the car and wait a few minutes to turn it back on making it completely unsafe. I brought it to the local dealer and as expected, and mentioned by others online, they said they have never heard of anything like it. They stated that my car has 9 different computers and that they are reading malfunctions on all of them and decided to reset the module that controls all of the interior electronics. $100. 00+ nothing changed apart from the fact that it is now happening more frequently. I refuse to get into the path of spending thousands of dollars on this repair just on the guessing game of replacing part after part without positive results. Please help!.

Failure Date: 03/18/2017

Y car accelerates too fast at certain times, like at intersections. It accelerates too quickly that my tires screech like I pressed the gas petal all the way down. This happens when I have the brake pressed and then put my foot on accelerator. This happens pretty much every day but not every time. Finally, I should mention that all my cars have been having problems since we moved and rented a house from my ex-landlord paul, who is a mechanic.

Failure Date: 11/06/2016

Vehicle has had repeated issues with acceleration and shifting gears since purchase. Vehicle will not accelerate over 40 mph while driving and rpms redline. It has been in for repair for over 40 days since March 2016 and is currently at dealership. Most recently the vehicle lost all power, including ability to steer and brake properly, after being in reverse backing out of my driveway. During the last two incidents, no warning lights have illuminated, nor have there been any fault codes found in the vehicle¿s system. The van is extremely unsafe and unreliable, and is a danger to myself and three young children - as well as other vehicles on the road. I have requested arbitration under new york state's lemon law and I have attached a copy of paperwork recently submitted. The pdf describes, in greater detail, the ongoing issues with the vehicle, as well as Chrysler's repeated attempts to service it without success. Since vehicles are mass produced, I worry that other consumers are experiencing these same dangerous issues, with no remedy in sight. Thank you for looking into this matter.

I have a 2011 Chrysler Town & Country van with adjustable pedals. Per the manual ¿the pedals cannot be adjusted when the vehicle is in reverse or when the electronic speed control system (escs) is on¿¿ implying some type of interaction between the two systems. From time to time the escs will not come on or will stop responding to inputs, including not disengaging the escs when the cancel button is pushed (though it will disengage by depressing the brake pedal). However, if I toggle the adjustable pedal switch (in any direction) the escs immediately becomes responsive again. There seems to be some type of interaction between the adjustable pedal switch and the escs causing this problem. I¿ve been to the dealer with no assistance. Due to the escs intermittently not disengaging via the cancel button this can be a serious safety issue.

When on the road in warmer weather everything is fine and then all electrical components stop working windows, air conditioner, speed control, radio, not sure what else. All idiot lights come on, wipers come on and wont stop until key is in off position or if you keep driving it will eventuality come to normal but until it does, no windows, no ac makes it a hazard in traffic at temps around 100 degrees. Makes one wonder what will happen next because it gets real hot in the car real fast and it works on your mind. When the weather is cool it hardly ever happens but when it does occur its for a shorter time. Headlites say on but I'm not sure about the brake lites and turn signals.

Failure Date: 04/17/2016

While driving down highway at about 60 mph with wife and 3 children, suddenly with no warning, all power to vehicle was completely lost. This made it very difficult to safely move vehicle to shoulder. If traffic would have been heavy this could have caused a serious accident. Once vehicle was parked it would not restart and had to be towed 20 miles to dealer. Once at dealer electrical system seemed to fail further. Power windows, locks and doors would no longer work. Clearly some sort of serious electrical problem this is the 4th time something like this happened, but with the previous incidents the car always started once it was stopped and put into park and key was turned.
