Battery runs down

Recently had a radio stolen from my 2001 town & country. Coincidence or not, now after I jump start the car and run it the battery runs down overnight like something is still on. Battery is new. Also the speedometer stopped working.

Pull any fuses marked stereo/radio and see if that helps. If insurance is involved, take it where new stereo getting installed & have them do it for you if your stumped.

Starting problem (see details), on 1998 Town & Country.

Check your battery cables and starter cables especially the connectors and bolts under the hood. The bolts and connections could be loose or corroded. Check the connections near the battery and on the battery since many times mechanics mess with these the most. My guess is something is loose if it starts well most times, but fails occasionally. Did you look for blinky codes or DTCs? A '47' (or P0562) could mean a bad battery or alternator, and a '12' (or P1684) could indicate intermittent connections. Do the dome lights dim or stay well lit when the clicking is heard during cranking? If so, then the issue is most likely near the battery and if not then the issue is more likely near the starter. Good luck. There are a lot of wires under the hood.

1996 Town and country new battery.. Drove car 10 miles went to get in the next day car did not start once jumped the car will start. what could it be?

Make sure the battery connections are clean and tight. Can be a Defective alternator or something is pulling power from the battery. If you have a multimeter test the DC voltage at the battery with the engine running. You should see at least 13.5 volts. Any less and the alternator is weak or bad. If it checks good and you cannot find anything that is on, such as glove box, under hood, trunk, courtesy, or dome lights, then drive to a trusted auto parts store and have them check the electrical charging system.

While cleaning veh, battery died down.....once we jump started it, the radio seems to be locked up. The treb/bass lights blink on and off, but the radio will not come on. I need to know if its locked up...

Sounds like you have an anti-theft feature in the radio...only way to get it working again is to go to a dealer with proof that you own the car and they can get the code for you. Or, if you bought the car new, or have the original paperwork, it should be written down there. Most dealers I know do this free but recently, I heard that some are now charging for this.
Good luck.
To avoid this happening when changing a battery, most parts stores sell a small device that plugs into the lighter that maintains radio memory power while you are working.
Also...charge and check your battery...If it died that fast, it may be close to being in need of replacement!

Radiator fan runs when engine is off

some cars do start up the fan when turned off after they have been driven. as long as it is not starting when the engine is cold there is nothing to worry about. the reason it took 15 mins to shut off is that with the engine not running the water is not being pumped
round the engine thus cooling faster. hope this helps
