Question about 1996 Chrysler Town & Country

1 Answer

Turn signals stopped working

Problems started about 1 yr ago. My turn signals worked off and on. When it rained or weather got cold-no turn signals. Might not start in the morning good or bad weather and then later in the day they would start up. Or I could go a couple weeks or more-worked fine. Then no signals that could last a day or several weeks. Mechanic was convinced needed new turn signal switch box. Replaced-worked few days-back to old routine. Now have absolutely nothing. This has gone on for several months. The only recourse unless you have a solution is to take all the carpet up and go inch by inch to locate the problem. He also has replace 2 small fuses. Any suggestions-winter is coming and hand signals will be very cold! help

    Yes, I have the same turn signal problem. They will work, and then they will not work...during the same driving trip. What can I do to fix it? If it was a fuse, it would not work all the time....could it be a bad ground somewhere?

    HELP

Under the dash just to the left of steering column you will find the signal fuse. it's about 1 "x 1.5" little box that plugs into a fuse block ( if you put your finger on it and push, with signal on, you can feel signal working) over time the holes in fuseblock become worn. A new fuse won't do it. But if you take the fuse out and coat the leads with solder, ( be suer to clean & flux them first) it will enlarge the posts or leads so that it will fit more snug. And thjat should take care of it

Had 04 transit connect for 6 weeks. always started fine till week ago when turned cold. glow plug light only shows for about 1 second, replaced glow plugs but still the same. can only start every morning...


Sounds like the timer is bad. Since you have power when warm, the power relay must be giving the timer juice. The way it is suppose to work is you wait until the glow plug light goes out and then try to start. In cold weather it should take longer for the glow plug light to go out.

Turn signal


You should check for a couple of problems:

1) Verify that the front and rear passenger turn signal light bulbs aren't burned out.

2) Check for a short circuit in the wires at the signal lights. This can happen if you have a leak around the light and moisture gets inside. A strong indicator that this is the problem is if the signal acts up right after a rain, but works fine after several days of dry weather.

Turning signals, flashers not working


You can use a pointed nosed pliers (or similar) to remove fuses..... The rain would not effect the turn signals unless you had a water leak into the flasher unit itself !
The A/C has to be fully charged to blow cold air and would not be on some days and then off the next. the refrigident gas would not change because of weather conditions. .........
A simple test lamp will indicate which fuse is functioning or otherwise without removal of same ! Good luck
