1996 Chrysler Town & Country Problems

Key May Not Start Car or Release From Ignition

Intermittently, the key may not start the car or release from the ignition. If it is excessively worn, replace the key. If the new key doesn't work, replacing the lock cylinder including tumblers should correct this concern.

Rear brake drum rust
While driving through deep or blowing snow/water, moisture may enter the rear brake drums, causing rust to develop on the rear brake drum and shoe friction surfaces. Over time, repeated (and sometimes infrequent) exposure to the snow can lead to temporary freezing of the rear brake linings to the drums. A revised brake drum and brake drum backing plate is available.
The Power Window Motor and/or Regulator May Fail

It is not uncommon or the power window motor and/or regulator to fail. In most cases the door panel will require removal to determine the exact failure.

160k miles, never a drivetrain problem. Comfortable driving, safe, great visibility. Except for occ. tires & brakes, less than $500 spent in repairs. Best car I've ever owned!
Overall not bad for 230,000 miles replaced Radiator and Fans,Battery, Alternator,two Motor mounts, BCM was replaced after a headache trying to figure out why wiper were not fuctioning; and finally thhe fuel pump. and still running very well. Not bad for the miles.
