OK update ! I brought it to someone I knew and he changed out the blower motor modular with what he had and it worked so I went to chrysler and bought another and that seemed to be it, So the one I bought from pepboys only lasted 30 seconds do know why but it just did
2003 chrysler front blower fan comes on when I turn the key and stays on full speed, even if I turn off the air control. I checked the relay and it's fine, it turns off when I take the key out. Please help...
Other than calling the customer service number listed, I don't know what else you can do other than getting a lawyer involved. I don't understand why they are denying your claim, since my letter stated it covered 2006 and 2007 model years. If they never fixed the problem in 2006, and still had problems in 2007, then it would seem to me that all 2006 model year product would be covered. ... Read More
So, does anyone have a suggestion of where I can lodge a complaint with Chrysler? I have been through three case managers and all say there is nothing they can do for me, the VIN on my 2006 Town & Country is excluded from the Rear Evaporator Warranty extension. They all three aggreed the part numbers are the same and the year is the same, but deny my claim. All three ... Read More
The letter I received I referred to in post 153 states that the extended warranty applies only to 2006 and 2007 Caravan, Grand Caravan and Town & Country minivans. It does not mention any exclusions except that the extended warranty does not cover other A-C parts. It applies only to the rear evaporator. If some other component failed, then this extended warranty would not apply. There is a phone number listed ... Read More
I too would be very interested in seeing this letter. Our 2006 with only 39,900 miles made a loud hissing sound and the A/C quit, so we took it in too, of course be told it wasn't covered. The service manager told me to write Chrysler to see if we could get reimbursed under the Warranty Extension referred to here, but the first two people I have talked to so far ... Read More
Any chance you still have your letter? I recieved the same letter. (I had already fixed that problem) I have still not recieved the reimbursement check and don;t know the contact info. Like an idiot I send the letter in and didn't keep a copy for my records. I just sent the bill. HELP!
II am extremely dissatisfied with the quality of my 2008 Town and Country van. I have 49,000 miles on it, and today it's down for brakes, a wheel bearing, wheel hub, and tie rod. About $800 in repairs. This follows a few weeks ago when it was down for about $500 in air conditioner repair due to a "bad line" that apparently was a known issue. Service writer admitted he "sees ... Read More
did you ever find out why heat would get cold while idiling. Please e-mail me back at Tsher.firstname.lastname@example.org
I'm curious about this too. My wifes van is having the same problem. Continues to blow cold up to the 2nd hash mark on the guage, then about a minute later it drops to just between the 2nd hash mark and the 1st hash mark. At this point, it starts to produce heat. When I come to a stop, it starts to blow cold. I'm figuring there maybe is a valve ... Read More
DID YOU EVER FIND OUT WHY THE HEAT WASN'T WORKING WHILE IDILING?
WHAT WAS THE PROBLEMS WITH THE T&C WITH NO HEAT WHILE IDILING?
The letter said to send evaporator receipts to: Chrysler Customer Assistance Center P O Box 21-8004 Auburn Hills, MI 48321-8004
Any chance you still have that letter with the address to send receipts to. We paid to fix it this summer and also received a letter. I can't find the letter now and want to send in my receipts.
Hey everyone new to the forum... Just wanted to let everyone know what happened tp me recently, I own a 2006 Grand Caravan SXT and back in JUly 2008 the rear evaporator started leaking (38,000 miles). I couldn't afford the $900 to replace it so i just lived without it. Anyway on Saturday November 14th I received a letter from Chrysler LLC that stated they were going to "extend the warranty ...

what was the problem/solution, i am experiencing the same thing right now. thank you
Had the same problem as bravado1 with our 2003 Chrysler Town and Country van. Replaced the control module (p/n 5179985AA) and problem is solved. The control module cost $103 in Mpls, MN. Thanks for your help bravado1!
Over the last 2 weeks ive noticed that when am idling at a stop light the heater wont blow warm air, it is very cold air that comes out. But as soon as i push on the excelorator and speed up it will blow warm/hot air. anyone else with this problem. i had replaced the blower motor resitor earlier this year for problems i had listed in a previous post and ...

I have been checking into A/C problems on the internet and received this message from a large auto parts supplier: Well, you are correct about this being a widespread problem. I was contacted by my vendor a few weeks ago, notifying me that this evaporator core is under development, and that I had better place my order, because orders for this unit are huge. I just checked AllData and Mitchell for ... Read More
I purchased a 2007 town and Country and I had the same problem the day after we picked up the car from the dealer. My husband was driving the car and it shut down while he was waiting at a red light and my child was in the car. We brought it back to the dealer and they said the issue had something to do with the automatic starter that they ... Read More
After our comparisons, we were sure it was going to be the Town and Country, but ended up with the Grand Caravan. They happened to have one of each that were basically identical. The only differences were the T&C had remote start and the Grand Caravan had Automatic Climate Control. Town and Country was about $800 more. The real kicker in the end was my wife prefered the dash on the ... Read More
Reuters News Service is reporting that DX dealers have approved a reorganization plan that will eliminate many dealers. Also, and perhaps of more importance to consumers, Chrysler will eliminate as many as 30 models including one of their two minivan brands. Trust me, you do not want to be the owner of a discontinued model. My 2003 Olds Silhouette's value dropped drastically when GM discontinued the Olds brand. Who will it ... Read More
Tom 166. I have a 2007 Chrysler Town & Country van (similar to your Dodge van). Had software updated, low gear replaced, etc. Rides a little bit better but problem still there. Mechanics say there is nothing wrong per computer. No lights in van indicating anything wrong. I can feel the van shifting from one gear to the next. Service manager said to come back if the problem still exist. Unfortunately ... Read More
I purchased at T & C Limited MSRP $37,860 Sunroof & Uconnect. The advertised price in the Tampa Bay Florida area was $29467. I purchased it for $23,500 out the door. That included a trade of a 2003 Mazda MPV Van with 87000 miles in good condition.
"I wonder if the 2007 Chrysler Town & Country SWB (3.3L V6 170HP) has the same transmission quality issues." I'm not sure which issues you are referring to. Starting in 2001 Chrysler revised the transmission a bit and started sending them out the door with external transmission oil coolers (the Gen 3s relied upon an oil cooler in the radiator only), and a lifetime fill of the new fully synthetic ATF+4 ...

I'm glade to hear that you have had less repairs then we have. Let me ask though, what repairs have you had done, big or small, up to 174K? At 131k miles, I had my main cooling fan (radiator fan) replaced due to motor failure. My brake master cylinder developed a very slow leak around 155k miles - had that replaced. Most recently, I had a developing crack in my radiator, ... Read More
The swaybar bushings on Gen4 vans are problematic, period, full stop, the end. Some also claim that the swaybar ends are troublesome as well although it is unclear whether that is actually the case or whether the links are being lumped in with the noise generated by worn bushings. In our case, our 2003 developed the infamous "clunk" somewhere in the thirty to forty thousand mile range and we simply ignored ... Read More
Well, as for longevity of the T&C goes, our two Dodge Grand Caravans (twins of the T&C) are fast approaching a combined quarter of a million miles, and they've been virtually bullet proof. In addition to regular maintenance, the 1998 has needed a starter, a door switch, a transmission and a vacuum battery tray over 145,000 miles. Not too shabby. Our 2003 has been similarly endowed with reliability in that it ... Read More

We are considering a 2003 T&C ex model with 1 owner and 31,500 miles on it (Certified from a dealer). I am reading some trans issues ...is this common with this model? I also read in some other forums Chrysler has offered a 7years/70K warranty on this model? Can anyone confirm?
Our 1997 Plymouth Voyager SE is currently sitting outside a county building in a parking lot. Why? Because it died and wouldn't restart. Thank God our 2000 Hyundai Accent and 1998 Mitsubishi Mirage will get us through the weekend. It started when the tranny blew @ 60K. We're still waiting for the next one to blow. We know someone who has replaced 6 transmissions in their Dodge Caravan! Engine blew @ ... Read More
This is not 1985, or even 2000. Owning a Nissan 20 years ago does not mean the Quest sucks. First gen Siennas and Odys were not very good either. Your experience with a 1994 DGC has no influence on what 2006 model van I would buy. Now, if you had a 2005 DGC and replaced it with a 2006 Ody, I'd give your experiences more value. Who was selling GM vans ... Read More
I had been looking for a used 2002 Odyssey w/low miles, but I'm getting a little nervous after having read of the problems that forum members have been having with the transmissions and other parts of the 2002s. The main problem was a lack of lubrication to 2nd gear. All of these trannys should have been inspected and modified(if no damage was found) or replaced. Honda also has a 100,000 mile ... Read More
Maybe people on this board are right about this recall thing! Here's some recent news from Autooninfo.com. The Chrysler Group of DaimlerChrysler AG is recalling 70,000 2003 Dodge Grand Caravan and Chrysler Town & Country minivans, for a latch that may get stuck in the unopened position and consequently prevent proper closure and permit an unintended opening while the vehicle is in operation. The Chrysler Group said that a new liftgate ... Read More
Did you ever get anywhere? Read my message #819. I have a 2003 Chrysler Town & Country with 31,000 miles and 22 months in service. At first the dealer tried to tell me that failure to shift into reverse and rough shifting during acceleration was normal for Chrysler T&C. Two tranmission rebuilds later, one at 7500 miles and the other at 31,000 miles, and I am still have no confidence that ... Read More
My wifes 2003 Town and Country LXi quit running, dealer says the "power control module" is fried. They tell my they have good info.......its covered under warranty,.... then the bad info.......... it is on National Backorder!!! I understood their problem and that it may take a while. But when I asked who I needed to talk to about getting a loaner........ they said ....."we dont do that" After a 45 minute ... Read More

I presently have a 2003 Acura MDX Touring with navigation (built off the 1999-2004 Honda Odyssey platform), but I like checking up on the old Chrysler vans, since we previously had 3 Chrysler vans over a span of 15 years, before we got the 2003 Acura. Now that Honda and Toyota have finally stepped up to the plate when it comes to usable cargo space and luxury offering, I must ... Read More
I'm a new owner of this van. First tank of gas worked out at about 19.2 miles per gallon in suburban/city driving. Working on the second tank now so we'll see how this one does; same driving conditions; mostly just me in the van with the exception of short distances to and from school with the kids; couple of short "whole family" trips. Peace!
After my Caravan transmission and TWO PT cruiser transmissions I will NEVER buy a Chrysler. Good luck unloading those poor example's of American Automobiles. Craig '04 Sedona EX
2002 T&C LX has averaged 26.1 in overall driving since I got it as a used vehicle (mainly highway). 2002 Chrysler T&C LX 3.3L V6 EPA 18 / 24 2002 Kia Sedona LX or EX 3.5L V6 EPA 15 / 20 The Chrysler is larger, quieter, smoother riding, and gas mileage MUCH better than the Kia Sedona. Yes, for many people, they do need a Town & Country instead of the ... Read More
Completely agree. Having owned 3 Chrysler minivans in the past, I understand you don't pay MSRP ever. But I'm just saying KBB and what not have to factor depreciation from something concrete, and MSRP is concrete. Joe Blow paying $24,500 for a Caravan and Susie Q paying $24,900 for the same Caravan isn't concrete. And now that I own an Acura MDX and not a Town & Country or Grand Voyager, ... Read More
The LXi is no longer produced while the Limited remains the top of the line Chrysler Town & Country. The former LXi is now known as the Town & Country Touring. Chrysler has dropped the T&C eL, eX, and LXi in addition to the Voyager eC and the Voyager name completely. In 2003, the Limited had all the items standard on the LXi plus Supplemental side-impact driver and front passenger Air ... Read More

Hello all, our '96 Plymouth Grand Voyager was recently stolen so it put us in the market for another minivan. I hate buying new and taking the $ hit so we went shopping for a used van. Thank God we only shop for a used van every five years...the process SUCKS - even with the internet. Anyway we found a 2003 Chrysler T&C with 1200 miles on it. They swapped out ... Read More

From the 2003 Consumer Reports Annual Auto Issue, overall reliability: Chrysler Town & Country = average Chevrolet Venture = worse than average Dodge Caravan = average Ford Windstar = much worse than average Honda Odyssey = average Mazda MPV = better than average Nissan Quest = average Pontiac Montana = worse than average Oldsmobile Silhouette = worse than average Toyota Sienna = Better than average
Hello, I have a new 2003 Chrysler Town & Country Limited with adjustable pedals. Have had it for about a month now. The manual states that the adjustable pedals can be set to adjust automatically with the memory seat positions and both my wife and I think that this function did work. However, after having it to the dealer this past week because of a problem with the Keyless remote and ... Read More
Since there are not enough Sienna's or Odyssey's for everyone who wants a mini-van, I'm glad there is someone willing to buy other minivans. However, I would say using Consumer Reports to substantiate Chrysler's reliability does not make sense. CR said rated the Voyager's reliability with their worst rating. They rated the Town & Country's reliability with their next to worst rating. CR rated the Sienna's reliability with their best rating ... Read More
Went out shopping to buy a 2004 Sienna or 2003 Odyssey. Decided to look at 2003 T&C just for fun. I own or have owned all three makes of vehicles. Ended up with the T&C. Here's my decision tree summary (aka my opinions): 2004 Sienna *best features of the three (best of the other two combined) *worst pricing *worst ride (relative to the other two, still a nice ride though it ...

Well I just compared the 2002 sticker with a 2003 sticker and this is what I found.... Even though the MSRP has gone up about $500, in the end with the integrated discount in the Chicago area, the price is almost $1000 cheaper than last year. Although this comes with a price. 1) CD Player not standard 2) Full size spare not standard 3) No mention of load leveling suspension 4) ... Read More
From what I've read, Chrysler has really tried to refine the powertrain of the new 2003 Turbo Cruiser. They've done alot of work and modifications to the existing powertrain to ensure it works well with the new turbo, which is not supposed to have the lag commonly associated with turbo chargers. All I can say is with 215 horses and 245lbs of torque I can't wait to drive a 2003 Turbo ... Read More
My 1997 Town/Country just got out of the dealer after 3 day repair of electrical problems. I am now on my fifth circuit board for the dashboard. They cannot find any short. I find it hard to believe four boards will fail. Fortunately, these started while under warranty, and Chrysler has cut me a break charging me just labor for some, 50.00 dollars only for others and 0 dollars for the ... Read More
Well I did open up the can when I asked for help choosing either the Odyssey or Town and Country. What is most important is reliability over the comforts, though the latter is important. We have placed a order for 2003 Odyssey EX-L without yet driving because none of the dealers have one to drive. If only Honda will come out with a more luxurious SE model this coming year (2003)...Or ... Read More
I have a 97 Town and Country LX. When all runs and works well it is a very nice vehicle. However, I have had many repairs over the 5 years including 3 (yes three) new circuit boards that control the dashboard guages, rack and pinion steering, parking brake pedal, stereo, wiper motor, wiper switch, fuel guage sender ($500.00), interior lights. Im likely to purchase a 2003 Oddyssey over a 2002 Town ... Read More
I hear that the 2003 Dodge will have the 3.8 optional on pretty much every trim line, not just the EX, ES, or AWD. And they will have the overhead DVD available (supposedly it was available this year but I haven't ever seen anybody with one), as well as a first for Dodge, sunroof. Also there will be a 20th anniversary model as the first Caravan came out in 1983. Supposedly ... Read More
eneth, you have made some pretty good points regarding Chrysler's past reliability and safety records. However, I do not believe that the situation Chrysler is in now is mainly because of their questionable reliability and safety record. Chrysler was doing better in 1998 before it was bought by Mercedies than it is now, mainly because of all the harmful changes that were made to managment by the Germans from Mercedies. I ...

I think Chrysler vans are finally on par with the other competitors now in terms of quality and I'm glad to hear that you've had such good luck with your '99. I'm just thinking when I look at vans again for the 2004 model year, the Toyota and Chrysler vans will be the only vans with the luxury features I'm looking for. That's great that Honda is finally offering heated leather ... Read More
I'll share my stories with all the three Chrysler vans I've had. I've previously said I was never "burned" or felt they were unreliable (to an extent) but they have and had their share of problems... 1988 Plymouth Grand Voyager LE (traded at 84,145 miles) - Mitsu 3.0 V6 head gasket blew up - A battery that would always almost go dead if too many ac systems were on.
