Shifting harshness and shuddering issues related to the operation of the automatic transmission have been addressed by factory service bulletins. The shuddering can feel like the vehicle is being driven over rumble strips.
Headlight switches can fail, causing the headlights to intermittently stay in the on or off position. Repeatedly turning the switch on and off may temporarily fix the problem. Replacement of the switch is needed to resolve this issue.
A failing head lamp switch can cause the head lamps and/or instrument cluster lighting to flicker or dim. The head lamp switch should have a noticeable click between each position; a "mushy" feel is a strong indication of a failing switch.

2005 Chrysler Town & Country RecallsAirbag 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.
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.
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.
