Question about 2003 Chrysler Town & Country

Open Question

On my 2003 Town and Country, the cruise control switches off by itself

Cruise control turns on when the car first starts but turns itself off after a short time. If the engine is sropped and then restarted, the cruise works again and then as before shuts itself off.

SOURCE: error codes 442 and 456 on 2003 Chrysler Town and Country

Could be the gas cap.  Do you fill the tank with the engine running?
Otherwise, check the hoses near the Evap canister.  I have 2003 T&C and had the small leak and large leak codes.  I looked at the evap cansiter and the hose coming from the fuel tank vapor line had a huge crack in it, to the point it had fallen off the evap caniser.  I trimmed the end of the hose and reconnected and voila, no codes.
The evap canister is on the driver's side of the van, underneath, slightly behind the drivers seat.
BTW, to clear the codes without an OBDII reader, remove the negative cable for 5-10 minutes (15 to be safe).  The computer resets and clears the codes, except for one that it sets saying loss of power to the memory.

SOURCE: locassion of output speed sensor on 2003 Town and Country

The input and output speed sensors look identical on the connector side. The one over the solenoid pack is the input, the one closer to the left frame rail or left front wheel is the output sensor. I hope this helps.

Stabilizer traction control light is on, and lost cruise control


Cruise control will always disable itself when any CEL light is present, so that's normal. The Stabilitrak light problem is a known common problem with these. Your steering wheel position sensor needs to be replaced. Mine does it every morning IF my steering wheel wasn't put into a straight position when I parked it. Straighten the tires, turn the ignition off and restart. Light will go out.

What causes cruise control to shut off after a short period of operation


I would start with the cruise control relay first ! it may be getting hot and shutting down. Then check the cruise control fuse. If all is ok! Then purchase a Haynes manual for your specific vehicle. It shows a lot of info, for your vehicle. You can get the manual at any auto parts store for about $ 20.00. God- Bless! Hope this helps.

Cruise control wont engage after restarting vehicle


The fact that the light comes on is a good indication that the electronics are working, the most common problem is a vacumn leak. This can be a damaged or cracked vacumn line, a bad check valve, or the dump switch on the brake pedal

What causes my cruise controll to not work intermittenly


cruise control starts working above 50kmh, so if your under that it wont work. the cruise servo may be at fault, or I have seen battery acid leak down on the vacuum lines causing cruise not to work correctly. cruise control works off of a vacuum so without it, it wont work. if the cruise light doesn't turn on when pressing the set/cruise button intermitantly it may be the switch itself that is starting to fail

The only thing I can think is that the cruise control and the other computerized functions all share the same electronic module. The added current to drive the valves of the cruise control might be just enough to cause a temperature failure that cools down back into the operational zone in the 2 to 3 seconds it takes you to restart the engine.

It could also be faulty programming, where the part of the code that causes the failure only gets included in the operation of the car while the CC is on.

It's mystifying.

Call the dealer to see if there is a bulletin or a recall.

Cruise control


this is happening because once you shut it off you are sending an electronic signal to transmission and it resets itself once car starts back up as if something inside the ecm has been reprogrammed and erased alll over again. the ecm is your brain which controls your car. get a diagnostic scan ran on it ok?
