SOURCE: door locks

Daughter had same problem on '05 T&C. Neighborhood mechanic searched Internet and found 80-90 others with same problem right around 40,000 miles. Free solution was to pull yellow 20A IOD fuse in right front corner of fuse box under hood, wait 10 seconds, then reinsert fuse. Should solve problem as long as you don't lock doors with FOB. You can unlock doors with FOB, but apparently locking with FOB causes the problem.

Permanent solution is to have dealer reprogram computer for around $50 which is what my daughter chose to do because of inconvenience of not being able to lock doors with FOB when getting baby/carseat out of vehicle.

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: Back door wont unlock

I have a 1999 Chrysler T&C 3.8 liter like yours and it sounds
like you are having the same the same problem I had.
Every time you hit the door unlock or lock button, it made a loud
buzz like you just missed a question on a game show. ;-)

It turned out the problem was the rear lift gate lock actuator. The part costs
about $40 from the dealer if I can recall correctly.

The repair involves: 1st removing the middle and rear seats to get
access from the inside to the rear gate
(obviously you will have to remove the seats from the side doors
since the rear gate won't open yet)

Remove the plastic inside rear gate panel and molding (phillips screws)
Once you remove the panel, you may see a way to manually
open the rear gate. As I recall, I think there was a access opening
covered from the inside with a black weather/insulation tape.
Carefully removing this out of the way gave access to a way to
manually open the gate, making the rest of the work easy.

Remove the electrical connector and the mounting bolts
to remove from the actuator. It is attached to the inside
rear gate with 2 or 3 bolts (10 mm?)

Remove the old one and replace the part, then put it all back
together, make sure you reconnect the electrical connector

Takes about an hour for the whole job (max)

Hope this helps,

Wes

Better answer, check your fuses. Not sure about your specific vehicle but most fuse box's are either under the dash or open drivers door and check for a panel on side of dashboard (where dash meets door)

Power Door Driver Side does not open on our 2005 Town & Country


You have a motor that actuates the lock, and it has failed, you must remove the door panel and replace that part, you will need a drill and a large pop rivet gun to install the part like the factory does, You will also need a rivet head cutter for the drill.

Drivers side sliding door lock doesn't always work. can hear the actuator working but no action with door lock


The actuator is weak or bad. It's a real joy to replace too!!! It's not actually that hard but there is very little room in the door for the actuator and your hand!

My front passenger side door lock make a buzzing noise everytime I lock it. All the doors lock but it makes that buzzing sound as it locks. What is the problem?


It's called a door lock actuator, and ours was on the driver side, buzzing each time the doors locked. Very annoying. We ordered it online, it was part #4717961AB from a Mopar company. Wasn't very easy to replace ourselves, but do-able if you have at least an hour and two people working on it. Cost us $60 plus shipping._418.jpg

Alarm button broken. Cannot disarm alarm. What do I do? Chrysler Town & Country LX 2003 model.


You can arm or disarm alarm manually with the key at the drivers side door, turn the key to open the locks and the alarm must be disarmed.
