Have someone scan the computer for trouble codes. The codes will direct you or a mechanic as to what to test.

    Stephen..First i made a mistake on the year. It's an 07 not an 09 with the 3.8L engine. The code came up 780 and relates to the cooling fan realy. Have any idea where it's located? I don't see it under the hood

    On most vehicles, code 780 is for a problem with the shift control module for the transmission. The cooling fan relay should be in the box next to the battery. Your owners manual should list the relays and their location.

SOURCE: where is the cooling fan relay on 2005 chrysler town and country

I am not sure on this one but I think the left front headlight has to be removed. Also I think these are riveted on and you will have to drill the rivets and gently use a chisel to get them off.

SOURCE: check engine light on 2005 town and country 3.3

(DTC) CODE # P0700....Transmission Control System (MIL Request)

Transmission Control Module (TCM) Malfunction or Failure.

P0700 Information Code

The Transaxle Control Module (TCM) monitors the malfunction of sensors and actuators relating to transaxle control. If any malfunction is detected, the TCM informs the PCM by sending a signal (P0700 code). P0700 means that a code has been set in the TCM.

This code is for information ONLY. If this code is present, check for transaxle codes.

P1776: Solenoid Switch Valve Latched in Low/Reverse Position. The TCM monitors the L/R solenoid to ensure that the fluid transfer happens. It uses a Pressure switch to verify this. Usually this code is set by a switch that is stuck or a solenoid that is not mechanically operating.

A transmission shop would be better suited for this type of work.

SOURCE: 2006 town and country check engine light is on.

According to my OBD2 reader manual a P0406 code means the Exhaust Recirculation Gas sensor is in fault. So it means that you have a problem with your EGR valve and/or sensor. So just change them, but be warned, even jobber model go for over 100$ normally, so might be an idea to scrounge around the scrap yards.

    2008 chrysler town country radiator fan don workin high speed

    If you have a viscous fan hub attached to the fan then it will not be working at high speed as there will be enough air flowing through the radiator to keep things cool. They only really work at high engine loads and slow speeds (hill climbing ) and at stop lights where the air flow is nill

    Fans for radiator wont stop running

    The lite came on because the computer saw that there was no power to the cooling fan curcuit. That is monitored by the computer. But to be sure you should have someone read the code for you. Or you can disconnect the battery and it will clear the code. If the lite comes back on the computer is still seeing a problem and you should have it check.

    Check engine light error code 480

    P0480 Cooling Fan I Control Circuit Malfunction

    Chrysler has issued a TSB (#18-004-07)containing the fix for an inoperative cooling fan on 2005-06 Caravans and Town & Country vans with the 3.3L or 3.8L engines. The problem usually occurs after driving in heavy snow conditions where snow and ice form at the bottom of the fan shroud and block the fan blade. This condition also sets a P0480 code in the PCM. The fix requires a PCM reflash. If you have an inoperative cooling fan or a P0480 code, check the version label attached to the PCM. If a software update has not been performed since this TSB’s issue date of January 24, 2007, you should have the update performed before you start replacing any parts.
