Question about 2001 Chrysler Town & Country

1 Answer

Gauges go nuts when car is started

I actually have a 2005 Town & Country minivan. Sometimes when I start the vehicle, the gauges "max-out", then after a few seconds, return to normal. Any idea what could be causing this problem?

Thanks,
Mark

Battery should be checked, low amperage will cause this problem. Replace battery and problem should correct. If any gauge spins around and stays on wrong side of stop, hold trip odometer knob in until diagnostics start. Dash will go thru a series of test and everything will be normal if test pass.

2005 town & country gauges stopped working. no brake lights,flashers,turn signal,no temp,fuel,speedometer or brake lights.head lights and tail lights come on and and everything else works.


Look for a bad ground...if you have a shop manual or sometimes the dealership will print you off that page, look for the major ground going to those devices.

My 2005 chrysler town and country wont start. it just makes a clicking noise as the gauge needles max out before returning to zero, the dash lights and radio still come on. what could be the problem?


it mite sound weird but your alternator mite be the prob like the diode on it can be out and it will make your car not start that is why your gauge jump like that so next time your gauge's jump as you try to start it but it just clicks it mite be the alt. hope this will help people out there.
