Question about 2002 Chrysler Town & Country
Just bought a used 02 T & C on Saturday. Today is Tuesday, went out this morning to go to work and the car wouldnt start at all. Doesn't seem to be the battery bc lights, radio, power locks/doors, etc. all work just fine. The engine doesnt click or anything when I try to turn the key, just nothing at all. No noise. Also, I noticed that all the gears are lit up (Park, Reverse, Drive, Neutral....). I had to put the car into neutral to push it back to get my other car out of the garage, and even when I changed gears to neutral, all gears were lit. PLEASE help!!! I feel like just kicking myself I spent all my savings on this thing (im a 21 year old mother of two so my savings are hard earned and not very much!!). Any help I can get would be soooooo appreciated!!!! You can imagine im totally freakin out right now!
First place to start is to have someone put a volt meter across the battery and read actual battery voltage. It should be better than 12v. Next, remove and clean both battery connections to ensure that you have a good solid connection. After that you need to check the other end of both cables to make sure that they are tight. Your car uses a starter solenoid.(located near the battery on the fender...the positive cable goes to it, then to the starter. You will need to check to see if 12v is reaching that solenoid (small wire) with the key turned to "start" and if it is, the heavy wire that goes to the starter should then also have 12v. If this happens then starter is bad. If no volts at small wire, then either the neutral safety switch or ignition switch is bad or out of adjustment.
Post back and I'll go into further stuff if you need it!
