97 Town and country Problems Sign In

Year of vehicle:1997

Make of vehicle :Chrysler

Model of vehicle :Town and Country LXI

Engine size:3.8L

Mileage:218,000



Help please its cold out side.

I have a 1997 Chrysler town and country LXi
3.8 motor

My blower fan was making some noise awhile back and has now went out.
So i replaced the motor and the fan it self. Still don't work.

I replaced the Relay in the fuse box under the hood and still nothing.

I replaced the resistor under the hood on fire wall passenger side.Still don't work.

I'm out of ideas here, I keep getting told to test this or that but i haven't got a tester nor do i even know how to run one if i did.

Here a re a few other things going wrong with my van,
#1 My Air bag light is on and my cruise and horn don't work. I suspect the Lock Ring is shot.

#2 My car will start and then shut off 3 seconds later. And act like it out of gas. Gauges will read nothing.

#3 I'm driving and all the gauges will just shut off. i smack the dash and they pop back on.

#4. My door lock will unlock and lock back up on there own. i have to pull the battery cable at night so they don't unlock and somebody steals my stuff inside while i sleep.

I was told this stuff is because of the body control module is going bad.
Not sure what or were this is.

And to boot i just replaced a broken Radiator and hoses and thermostat and now i have no darn heat at all.
And today it decided not to start at the store for my wife so we had to jump it and wouldn't ya know it locked us out right after i jumped it becasue the locks will lock and unlock on there own.


Thanks
Jon

Someone is going to have to do some testing on the circuit so if you are not equipped or unable to do these things, then you have no other option than to simply pay a shop to do it for you.

The first thing you need to know is if it is power or ground that is missing at the motor.

Well i had a friend test it for me and he says there is no power there.

We traced it back as far as we could and found nothing. So im going to change my lock spring tomorrow then take it to the shop to figure it out thanks.

I don't know what you mean by a "lock spring" but I think taking it to a shop is a good idea.

I think he means the airbag clockspring, which he is figuring is what has turned on the airbag light along with making his horn and cruise inoperative.

I really hope he's not going to try to change that himself.

Could certainly be dangerous to attempt without good working knowledge of how to properly disarm the airbag. Once properly disarmed its a pretty easy job, but if not could be a trip to the hospital.

Assuming he has a wheel puller.
