2008 Chrysler Town & Country Recalls
If the ignition key unexpectedly moves to the OFF or ACCESSORY position, the engine will turn off. This will depower various safety systems including but not limited to airbags, power steering, and power braking. Loss of functionality of these systems may increase the risk of crash and/or injury in the event of a crash. The weight of extra items on the ignition key ring can be a contributing factor to this unexpected occurrence. Until this recall is completed customers are advised to remove all other items from the ignition key ring. Dealers will modify the ignition switch to correct this concern.
On vehicles modified for wheelchair accessibility by Freedom Motors Incorporated, the rear axle may crack and fail. Dealers will replace the affected axles free of charge to resolve the problem.
Condensation from the AC (HVAC) system may leak from the drain grommet onto the occupant restraint control (ORC) module. This can lead to illumination of the airbag warning light and/or inadvertent airbag deployment. An inadvertent airbag deployment could result in injury and/or a vehicle crash. Dealers will replace the affected airbag module to correct this concern. This recall is expected to begin during August of 2011. The Chrysler recall number is L01.
Chrysler is recalling certain 2008 Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan vehicles to correct a possible water leak from the heating and A/C (HVAC) drain grommet. The water intrusion may cause illumination of the air bag light or inadvertent air bag deployment. Dealers will replace the HVAC drain grommet free of charge.
The sliding door wiring harness may be routed improperly, and as a result can get damaged from contacting components. A short circuit can result in a fire. Dealers will reroute and repair affected wiring free of charge to resolve the concern.
