Instrument cluster failure

Instrument cluster periodically failed. No speedo, gas gauge, tach, temp. gauge,etc.(had this same problem with 1995, and 1998 models of chrysler/dodge minivans, the 1999 would 'correct' if I hit the dash board just right, the others would not-I would just drive them without the gauges and eventually they would come back on).

Water Pump Housing problem. (1 answer)

On the back of the water pump housing is a hose that pushes onto the housing. The thing that the hose pushes onto is broke off inside the hose. Is this something that can be fixed or perhaps a pipe can be welded to the housing to push the hose onto. Any help would be appreciated.

2005 Chrysler Town & Country Recalls

Airbag Warning Light May Illuminate

Under certain environmental conditions, a front crash sensor for the airbag system may crack, allowing water intrusion. This can cause the sensor to fail and illuminate the airbag warning light. The airbag system may not deploy as designed when the airbag warning light is on, increasing the risk of personal injury in the event of a crash. Dealers will replace the affected sensors with ones of a new design. This recall is expected to begin during June 2010. The Chrysler recall number is J38.

Reduced Airbag Performance

Vehicles originally sold or registered in areas using greater amounts of road salt may have damaged up-front airbag sensors due to cracks allowing water intrusion. These sensors provide enhanced airbag performance in certain types of frontal crashes. In one of these crashes, with one or both of the vehicles up-front sensors inoperative, the occupants will not benefit from the enhanced airbag protection these sensors would provide. Dealers will install new up-front sensors with improved corrosion protection. Vehicles in other areas will receive a lifetime warranty on these sensors. This recall began on July 2, 2007. The Chrysler recall number is G09/X16.

Windshield Wiper Motor May Fail

The front windshield wiper motor armature shaft may break. Loss of windshield wiping capability could occur, resulting in the driver's vision being obscured, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the windshield wiper motor to correct this concern. This recall is scheduled to begin during June and July of 2006. The Chrysler recall number is F10.

Recently it started to not take gas which is frustrating. Had issues with the passenger electric door but managed to fix that myself. There has been a "growling" noise in the engine compartment for a few years now. No engine light to indic...
