2001 Town & Country Locking and Unlocking is Going Haywire

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.

The body controller is at fault it may need the software update from the dealer... one thing you can do is disconnect the battery for about 5 minutes then when you reconnect it... the fob will work again...

Why does my 2001 Chrysler town and country shake like it has a flat tire going on a highway but does not and it does not happen all the time

Check your tires for any "hot spot". Hot spots are created if car has been stored for a long time or from abrasion due tire locking from an emergency stop.
