Question about 2002 Chrysler Town & Country

1 Answer

On '02 Town & Country, Brake pedal presses to floor but when pumped gets hard. then wait a minute and pushes to floor again. Is this possibly a caliper or master cylinder problem?

Just finished changing pads and bled them. Passenger side pads worn low but driver side just little wear.

If you have no leaks from the calipers or wheel cylinders then its the master cyl.

Recommend inspecting the booster assembly for vacuum leaks then if it passes go to the abs unit inspection and replacement... Sounds like your Mechanic is correct ...

SOURCE: hi...i have a 2005 chrysler

its sounds like it could be a bad master cylinder with an internal leak.it could also be a problem with the abs hydraulic module that for some reason is bypassing brake fluid within the unit itself.these problems won`t neccessarily turn on the dash light or activate the abs light.

SOURCE: 2005 Chrysler Town & Country. Passenger side window problem.

HAVEK 1005 sounds right on track.... but also try this, usually works well for non functional power windows, specially Caravans.

NO COST PROCEDURE TO FIX IT:

1. Sit in vehicle, on seat next to problematic window
2. Ignition key is on
3. Door in question is opened (in case you closed it)
4. While door is open, press and hold power window button in desired window travel, keep button pressed !!
5. SLAM hard the door closed with one hand while other hand holds button as per #4.
6. Watch window operate as it should.
7. Repeat 3-6 if necessary, but usually the first try works!

NOW, for the naysayers that says you must replace power window motors etc, at $$$ cost because the above fix does not work, or is not long lasting fix, or less than a "professional fix".... Well then, when the window fails to operate again, apply same fix again at that time.

I have fixed my van this way numerous times (usually once a year), and to all local friends I recommend this fix too, likewise do the same and are happy with the solution.

Still have air inside, because you used gravity feed method.

I have a 2005 Chrysler Town & Country and I changed the front and brakes and rotors on it and now when I go to drive it the brake pedal has to almost touch the floor for the car to stop what is wrong


If the pedal doesn't "pump up", you may have assembled brakes incorrectly, or installed the wrong rotors. If it does pump up, and is down again a minute later, you just need to "bleed" the brakes. That's a two person job, one in the car, one under it.

Brake pedal goes to floor after fixing leak in line and bleeding brakes


neither is bad. The proportioning valve is kicked and they can sometimes be a bear to re center. Here's the best way I've had success doing that. Before you try opening up any more bleeder screws you, 1)top off the brake fluid reservoir, 2) slowly pump the brake pedal, not all the way to the floor and without the engine running but with the key on, about 20 to 30 times. After you do that you very quickly hit the brake pedal very hard but not all the way to the floor. The repeated slow pumping of the pedal will very slowly put pressure into the line, even if it's air it will compress a little at a time and when you jab the pedal that one time at the end it will re-center the valve. Now here's the key. If the brake light is on it should shut off when that valve centers itself. That's when you must bleed the air out but whoever you have helping you tell them not to push the pedal all the way to the floor again or the valve will pop again. Open the bleeder to the caliper that had the blown line and then have them push slowly down on the pedal only half way to the floor and then stop pushing and hold position til you tighten the bleed screw. After you close the bleeder screw they can let up and do it again. If he pushes it to the floor and you hear a click that means the valve kicked again and you need to start over. Time consuming, yes but it works. I hope this makes sense. Sometimes it's hard to relay what I do to words on paper,.

My brake peddel is spongee-soft, and goes to the floor if i prees hard?


when you push pedal hard & pedal goes to floor does brake light come on?
assuming brake fluid leval is ok & didnt run empty have you checked for a leak?
pulling all wheels & inspecting brakes,cylinders, calipers,& lines for leaks.
does the pedal pump up & feel ok with engine running?if so there is air in the system
if it does'nt change the way the pedal feels & no leaks are found & brake linings are ok & adjusted
properly than your master cylinder is leaking internally & needs to be replaced

I have installed new front and back brakes,new calipers,brake lines,and now thanks to bad advice a new master cylinder and my pedal still goes to the floor.we have bled the lines many times and tried to...


Have the engine running & bleed the brakes again

Have someone in the vehicle slowly push the brake
pedal,never pump.

When you are driving, do you pump your brakes,NO

Pushing the brake pedal only moves the piston in the
brake cylinder about 1",that is all
That amount of movement will build up to 2,000 lbs
of pressure. So no pumping,does nothing

As the person is pushing the pedal down,someone
else opens & then closes the bleeder valves while the
pedal is still going down.

Then you wait on the person in the car to start over.
Real simple.

Assuming you paid for all that work,why do you have
issues that you didn't have before.

Don't want to discuss what the pros do,but we have
a thousand people on this site every day with problems
that they shouldn't have and are lighter in the wallet

How in the world do you change brake pads on a 2002 Town&Country


After supporting the vehicle safely.....With the wheel off you should see two bolts facing away from you near the top of each end of the caliper.
Remove these two bolts then pop the caliper up and off with a big screw driver or pry bar exposing the brake pads.
Do not remove the brake hose.
Replace pads....push caliper piston back into caliper and reinstall caliper and bolts.
Thread locker (liquid) should be applied to caliper bolts.
Caliper sliders....the parts the bolts go into .....should slide easily in calipers.
Push brake pedal a few times to restore pedal height before driving.

Engine suddenly revs when stopped & @ idling


sounds like one of the metal arms connected to the engine may be getting stuck some how. have someone get in car and press on gas when car is off while you watch engine to see what is moving, then check those arms to see if there is any possible obstructions or knicks or something on them
