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.

My car doesnt want to start up right away in the morning. Almost like its really cold out and it takes it a min. The rest of the day its fine runs great. Any ideas?


Reason 1 - Gasoline, like any other liquid, evaporates less when it is cold.You have seen this -- if you pour water onto a hot sidewalk it will evaporate a lot faster than it will from a cooler place like a shady sidewalk. When it gets really cold, gasoline evaporates slowly so it is harder to burn it (the gasoline must be vaporized to burn). Sometimes you will see people spray ether into their engines in cold weather to help them start -- ether evaporates better than gasoline in cold weather.

Reason 2 - Oil gets a lot thicker in cold weather. You probably know that cold pancake syrup or honey from the refrigator is a lot thicker than hot syrup or honey. Oil does the same thing. So when you try to start a cold engine, the engine has to push around the cold, gooey oil and that makes it harder for the engine to spin. In really cold places people must use synthetic motor oils because these oils stay liquid in cold temperatures.


Re ason 3 - Batteries have problems in cold weather, too. A battery is a can full of chemicals that produce electrons The chemical reactions inside of batteries take place more slowly when the battery is cold, so the battery produces fewer electrons. The starter motor therefore has less energy to work with when it tries to start the engine, and this causes the engine to crank slowly.

All three of these problems can make it impossible to start an engine in really cold weather. People either keep their cars in heated garages or use "block heaters" to get around these problems. A block heater is a little electric heater that you plug into the wall to keep the engine warm.

I have a 1992 toyota 4wd 3l that has been starting really hard especially on cold mornings. i cleaned the cold start injector and changed the timmer but it still does it. can anyone help? thanks rick


Check your battery for proper volts (12.6). Sometimes the cold weather will bring a battery down. Also check the Starter Relay, again cold weather will make it stick causing it not to start. Those are the biggest problems with a car not starting in the cold weather unless you have something else going on then your starter and your ignition needs to be checked.

1994 corolla: hard to start


If it is happening more frequently in cold or damp weather it could be a spark issue. Wet or damp weather can effect spark plug wires if there is even minor damage to them (usually occurs durring rain). The other things that come to mind are the fuel pump and lastly the fuel line check ball that is in the fuel tank. If it is leaking then all the fuel in the line will drain back into the tank over night (pressure lost in the fuel line) and this will cause repeated, extended cranking when you first start the car in the morning or after the car has sat for several hours.

Van won't start in early morning when it's cold.


I'd be real tempted to replace coolant temperature sensor, as it sends signal to ECM regarding engine temperature and fuel requirements pertaining to that temperature. For example, it tells ECM that engine is cold, send more fuel for cold start, but if it's defective, doesn't tell ECM to do so, or gives ECM the signal that engine is already warm, and doesn't require that extra fuel now for start up.
