Chrysler Town & Country Problems

Excessive oil consumption—defined as more than one quart per 1,000 miles (on vehicles with less than 50,000 miles) or more than one quart per 750 miles (on vehicles with more than 50,000 miles)—is common. Common causes include exhaust valve guides, valve cover gaskets, camshaft plugs, camshaft seals, and crankshaft seal.

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.

Worn sway bar bushings or sway bar end links may cause a rattling or clunking noise from the front suspension during low-speed driving. Though not always the root cause, front struts are often replaced for this condition.

Chrysler Town & Country Questions

When driving, the dashboard lights would flicker and the gauges would go haywire. Now the vehicle won't starter won't crank, and when I try, the gauges spin 360 degrees.

Sounds like wheel bearings but mechanic says not problem with brakes or bearings even after 40,000 miles of noise. Noticed the noise after new tires on front at 80,000 miles. That was 40,000 miles ago. Recently I checked for loose spoiler, fender liners, etc under the front. I replace a missing...

It's not consistent but it will start screeching while I'm driving, only stopping when I break and it sometimes gets louder or dies down altogether.

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.

The occupant restraint control module monitors vehicle occupant and crash data to determine which airbags to deploy when necessary. A software error may result in the airbags deploying from the opposite the side of impact (a left side impact would deploy the right side airbags and vice versa). This would leave the occupant at the point of impact with no protection, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will reprogram the occupant restraint control module to correct this concern.

The incorrect software may have been installed in the occupant restraint control module (ORC). As a result, the airbags may not deploy as expected in the event of a crash. Improperly deployed airbags can increase the risk of personal injury. Dealers will inspect and replace the ORC module as necessary to correct this concern.
