Question about 2002 Chrysler Town & Country
Just had new radiator and hoses installed
It sounds like your instrument cluster bulbs blew out if only a few dont work and others do you can remove your instrument cluster by following steps in repair manual either haynes or chiltons and bulb testing and replacement will be simple from there. Be careful though there are alot of screws you maynot see to remove that, follow book carefully bulbs are cheap from parts store. Refer to interior and electrical system sections in manual.

When the car is completely cool,check the electric fan(s) for smooth rotation.
Clean/check/change the thermo sensor,contact and wire.
Excavate air pocket in coolant system / check for head gasket leak
This test will kill two birds with one stone.
MAKE SURE THE COOLANT SYSTEM and ENGINE IS COLD!
RAN THIS TEST IN A WELL VENTILATED AREA ONLY!
You will spill some coolant during this air pocket purge test.......BE KIND TO THE ENVIRONMENT and ANIMAL please clean up after the test!
Put the front end on a pair of ramp or park your car on a VERY STEEP HILL (radiator facing top of the hill) .
Top of the coolant reserve tank
Let it ran for 10-15 minutes.
Monitor for air pockets escaping from coolant reserve tank.
Small amount of bubbles is OK at 1-5 minute mark
After the thermostat open up (after 195 F warm up) at
5-12 minute mark or after high idle you should see less bubbles.
If you do not see any in rush of bubbles then your thermostat may be partially stuck or rusted badly inside the thermostat hosing.
Give the thermostat host few gentle taps.
If you see larger bubbles surfacing after 15 minutes then should do a hydrocarbon (HC) dye test to test for potential head gasket leak.
Let engine cold down and top off coolant reserve tank.
Start monitor for coolant lost
A coolant flush is require every 2 years or 24,000 miles.
I recommend the thermostat that has a relief pop-let to reduce the change of burst radiator and coolant hoses.
Make sure you get a new thermostat gasket,black RTV and fresh coolant for the job.

It sounds like one of the transmission cooling lines is leaking, where they attach to the radiator. There may be a rusty section that was 'bumped' while the hoses were being replaced, causing it to leak. If the section that is leaking is not the fitting at the radiator, but a bit away from it, you can cut the section of tubing at the leak, purchase and slip a section of rubber fuel line over the bad area, clamp both ends with small clamps. Make sure the tranny fluid is at the proper level, don't drive it low.
