    I have the same problem with the van crank and then don't crank and the alarm light is on

    I can put the key in and it will start for a 3 seconds and then cut off, then i try it again and it will do the same thing. Some time it will not start for hours, then it will start like nothing is wrong.

My van is doing exactly the same thing. It will crank, then cut right off, after I try 3 times it doesn't do anything. After that it may not start for a couple of days, but if I leave it alone after the first or second try it may start back in an hour or so. It was fine for about 4 months, then just started back up. If you found a solution, please help me....

Is the check engine light on when you turn the key switch on ?
The one thing that can affect both the gauges and the ignition circuit is the key switch.

Engine will start, but all the dash warning lights come on, then the engine shuts off. if i tap under the dashboard on the passenger side before engine shuts off, most the time it will keep running.


Sounds like you have a loose connection in the instrument cluster in the dash. There were a lot of Town & Country owners having engine issues related to a faulty instrument cluster. The security system is connected through that somehow and if it loses power, like it sounds yours does, it would shut the car off even while driving. The fact that you can tap on the dashboard and keep it working leads me to believe it's the instrument cluster.

Two weeks ago my 2007 Town & County (23,200 miles on it) began hard starting. So I held down the key about 4 seconds & it started. My owner's manual says to not hold the key down over 15 seconds....


Sounds to me you dont have a problem. Every once in a while, if the car was hot when you shut it off and tried to restart it after 1-3 min of sitting, you might have to crank it over for a few seconds, to clear out the engine. I wouldn't worry about it if it only happens once in a while.

Starting Problems


This may or may not help. Hopefully it will. We recently purchased this 1998 chrysler town & country. Everything was working fine, started fine, etc. we took it to get emissions done.....passed emissions.. .made it home. i turned the car off to run inside for a minute. came back out car started.. ran for 3 seconds than died out. tried again... ran for 3 seconds than died out... after that it no longer would do anything. all the lights worked except in the ignition module. the top dashboard lights worked though. I then noticed that the "alarm set" light stayed lit. after replacing fuses and running an OBD test and found no trouble codes or issues with fuses it dawned on me it may be the alarm. after searching the internet for hours i found a forum that suggested unplugging the battery for about 5 minutes....rehook it and then try starting it again. well i tried doing that the first time using the REMOTE to unlock the doors and nothing happened. i locked the doors and repeated the same battery unhook-rehook process except without using the remote... (i noticed a lot of forums saying that the remotes can be deffective in that they somehow trigger the alarm if the transmitter is not working properly as well as the fact that chrysler has issues with their anti-theft systems and if the alarm is set than it will act as a kill switch not allowing your ignition to work).. so after unhooking and rehooking the battery and using only the key to unlock it started right up! so i've decided to not use the remote at all and have had no other problems. let me know if this helps
