A bad earth connection point on my New Zealand model Chrysler Voyager LE (same car as yours but right hand drive) caused similar problems, including the towing thing. My dealer told me that they would be busy for 3 weeks - dealer talk for "we would prefer to sell you a new one".
A bunch of black wires connect to a chassis ground bolt on my model on the right hand side wall, under dashboard height. I was "lucky" to have the fault present when investigating it, and testing I did afterwards proved this to be a definite cause. You have to remove some covers and pull the floor carpet away This may be on the left on your model. A plug in connector is used, to bring multiple wires together at this point. All I had to do was undo the nut and clean the metal of the bolt and earth lug - use a file or sandpaper, and maybe spray on some WD40 or CRC to impove conductivity. I added an extra washer to help the metal to metal bond also.This seems to have fixed the problem. It has been OK now for about 1000 miles. Good luck !

Did you replace the sensor by the thermostat in the engine block or the one under the drivers headlight, There are two, the one next to the thermostat controls the temp gauge in the vehicle. the one under the headlight assembly controls the actual fans and is a electronic module. You have to remove the head light assembly to get to it.
