Model Years Affected: 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2008, 2010, 2013

Average Mileage: 99,489 mi (45,000 mi - 185,000 mi)


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.

    Headlights wont turn on sometimes and will go out while driving, parking lights and tail lights do not go out, just the headlights.

  • We have a 2006 Town and Country Touring. Our headlights go on and off randomly when van is in use and even when parked and just sitting in our driveway. Trying to figure out problem. Maybe the switch? Our brights work fine and none of the other lights flicker. It has worn down battery a couple times. :( not happy.

    leaving parking lot, I realized the lights did not come on after switching them on manually. Had to repeatedly move switch to on and off position to get them to work. Began traveling and 15 minutes later, at a 40mph speed, the lights shut off for about 20 seconds several times.

  • Headlights flash on and off, but do not stay on. Also, while driving at night they lights were on and then automatically turned off. It was hard to see and luckily I was close to town. I am still searching for a recall on this problem.

    I've noticed the head lights do not turn off. I have to turn the switch off, on, and then off again to finally make them stay off.

    I have the same problem. My headlights will turn on and off by themselves, and sometimes I have to try to turn them off 15-20 times. This happens mostly when there is moisture in the air (I live in Southern Virginia, so like all the time). It's annoying and dangerous, and our Chrysler Dealership has basically said there is nothing wrong. We're switching mechanics.

    When turning on headlights, have to keep turning switch on/off before they stay on. Last night they turned off while driving. Had to pull over and turn switch on & off untill they finally came on and stayed on.

    Headlights shutoff briefly @ night. Have to turn headlamp switch numerous times to get lights to go off. Parking lights came on 2 times 1 night. Switch bad.
