Question about 2001 Chrysler Town & Country
The Battery dies after the doors are left open for a short period of time.
Do I have the right size battery?
Hello, you are wantng to know if you have the right size battery for your vehicle. It sounds as if your battery may not have enough cold crank amps in it to support your vehicle, or either the battery you have has a bad cell. Your local auto supply store should be able to help determine if the battery is bad. It may also have just a surface charge and need to be charged on a trickle charger overnight or either there may be a parasitic draw on your battery beside the lights, but before going through a bunch of different test check your battery condition, then manufacturer specs, then battery cranking amps to manufacturer specs. I would say about a 800 cca battery at least.

Thank you for contacting fixya.com.
The key lock/unlock for doors are powered by the batteries in the remote, while the ignition key draws its energy from the vehicle via induction. Since the battery is dead you are having this problem. You need to call assistance from the nearby auto shop or a locksmith. I guess you don't have any other option.
