2001 Town and Country Lock and Unlock is Going Haywire on its Own

Our '01 T&C Limited is possessed!

First things first, remote won't do anything - - won't lock or unlock, won't set off panic, won't open any doors. Batteries have been changed, and still nothing (second remote that came with van was lost and never found, so we only have the one).

On occasion (and starting to happen more regularly) the van will just keep unlocking itself, driver side turn signal will flash, then passenger side, 10 sec's later same thing. This keeps up for sometimes up to 30 minutes.

Had in to local Goodyear for service (going there for 5 years, good techs reco'd as some of the best around by retired Napa Reg'l Mgr that is friend of family) and just my luck they couldn't get it to replicate the problem.

Other problems that may help solve: Lock with door button, and then unlock manually with key (not valet key) and the alarm goes off; and three weeks ago, passenger side door would open with overhead console button but not with interior button by the door itself - - now three weeks later both interior buttons open and close side door.

ARGGHHH! Like I said, POSSESSED!! Can anyone help? Thanks.

T & C 2001 REMOTE CONTROL PROGRAMMING


ATTENTION: You MUST HAVE one working remote to add one more to the system.
1. Press LOCK button 5 times at 2 second intervals to resynchronize remote.
2. Insert key into the ignition switch. Turn ignition to the RUN position (as far as you can
go without cranking engine). Wait for ignition chimes to stop.

3. Using the working remote, press and hold the UNLOCK button on the remote for 4 to 10
seconds.

4. Within the specified 4 to 10 seconds, continue pressing the UNLOCK button and then
press the PANIC button ( on the programmed remote ) for 1 second and release both
buttons. A chime will sound to indicate that the remote programming mode has been
entered ( allow 3 seconds for chime to sound ).

5. Within 30 seconds of the chime, press and release the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons
simultaneously then press and release just the UNLOCK button on the same remote.
A chime will sound indicating the remote has been programmed. Press and release
the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons simultaneously and then press the UNLOCK button on
each new remote you wish to program at this time. A chime will sound afer each
additional remote is programmed.

6. Turn the ignition OFF and remove key.
7. Test Remotes.

2001 T & C van, driver side back door will not unlock. Also, I am not sure if thisi srelated but the car alarm keeps going off every few minutes ugghhh!


First, check that you're child safety lock isn't set for that door...If thats not possible then the next culprit might be the alarm FOB battery. IF, its an aftermarket alarm FOB you're in luck...changing the batt should do it...If it IS a factory alarm FOB, you have TWO choices...get a new aftermarket keyless entry system $89-129...or go to the dealer for reprogramming the remote, about $89.
Good Luck
