1998 Chrysler Town & Country Reviews

To the guy who posted before this post. If car is not starting or starting and stalling. Check to see if odometer and gear indicator is on or off. If the milage and gear select screein is not working there is a printed circuit board on the back of instrument cluster where a soldered area breaks. What i usually do is smack the instrument cluster a few times and if the milage come back on you can start the car. If not I remove the trim around the cluster (one that the traction control switch is on then the other where light switch is) un plug all conections and you will then see four screws holding in cluster. Remove the four screws ( try to use magnetic screw driver so you dont loose screws) and start by gently shaking cluster til odometer comes back on and car will start.
If the odometer is working and car still does not start try disconnecting battery and shaking battery around. I think one of the wires on to and from battery might have an issue. that has happen to me a few times too. Obviously these are not repairs but at least in will get car starte

I put a alternater and a new ignition switch and its not starting still..
