Question about 2001 Chrysler Town & Country

2 Answers

My car radio turns off about every 15 seconds for 2 seconds then comes back on. The clock time goes off too, just like turning the car off. Occassionally when it comes back on, it turns the CD player on and I have to switch back to FM. Then some days it works perfectly fine. The battery has checked out fine. Anybody else have this issue? Thanks for reading!

    Well I took my van in to get the oil changed yesterday and told them the battery light just started coming on and about the radio problem. So the guy hooked his test kit up to the battery to test the charge and had my push and hold the gas for a minute and after a few more mins, he said the charge was fine. Since then the battery light hasn't come on and the radio hasn't messed up once! Hopefully they're both fixed for good! Thanks for reading about my issue!!!

    And today, we're back to the radio messing up every 15 seconds again.....

    just an idea when the guy hooked up the battery kit it worked fine. if that was the case check the wires onto the battery and the earth wire. when he put the clamp on to the battery it may of made a good circuit connection.

Loose junction inside the radio, or it's power module going bad (overheating, expanding, causing loss of contact - when it cools off ,it shrinks and regains contact). Either have technician repair the radio, but it might be much cheaper to replace it with the same model from junkyard

You may have a faulty connection either on the radio plug or the fuse. check them. sometimes the fuse can look good but it has snapped and any movement will break the circuit.

How doI set the clock


Setting the Time (Without Date Display) If your vehicle has an AM/FM base radio with a single CD player and preset buttons numbered one through six, the radio will have a clock button for setting the time. You can set the time by following these steps: 1. Press the clock button until the hour numbers begin flashing on the display. Press the clock button a second time and the minute numbers will begin flashing on the display. 2. While either the hour or the minute numbers are flashing, turn the tune knob, located on the upper right side of the radio, clockwise or counterclockwise to increase or decrease the time. Instead of using the tune knob, you can also press the SEEK, FWD (forward), or REV (reverse) buttons to adjust the time. 3. Press the clock button again until the clock display stops flashing to set the currently displayed time; otherwise, the flashing will stop after five seconds and the current time displayed will be automatically set. To change the time default setting from 12 hour to 24 hour, press the clock button and then the pushbutton located under the forward arrow label. Once the time 12H and 24H are displayed, press the pushbutton located under the desired option to select the default. Press the clock button again to apply the selected default, or let the screen time out. Setting the Time (With Date Display) If your vehicle has a radio with a single CD player or a CD with DVD player, the radio will have a clock button for setting the time and date.

Turn the radio on. 2. Press the MENU button. Once the clock option is displayed. 3. Press the pushbutton located under that label. The HR, MIN, MM, DD, YYYY will appear on the display. 4.

I have a 2001 Chrysler T & C Limited. My tilt broke and tried to repair it. Finally located a whole new steering column (couldn't just replace a part.) When it was all back together everything...


If the clock goes out with the hiccup the radio system is losing total power. Have you had the radio tested??If you have & without being there to help I would check the wires in the column first. Could be a short in the steering wheel radio control or ingition switch. I figure you have them with power everything. I always check to see if proper voltage is being suppied to the connector. Check the counnector on the window & hatch motor first. If you want to post back I give you a hand solving the glitches. I have a 03 GC ES LOADED.

Check engine light comes on intermittently. Code 14, replaced air idle control valve. Ck engine light still comes on. What the problem?


If you are secure that the repair was done correctly, pull the 7.5 backup fuse (with the car turned off) in the under hood fuse box and wait 10 or 15 seconds before putting it back in. That should clear your engine light. You will have to reset your clock, and any selected radio settings.
If you do not have an anti-theft radio, you could simply disconnect the negative battery terminal for 10 or 15 seconds and that would do the same thing, but if you have an anti-theft radio that would require a code reset, meaning that you would have to have the five digit code.
If the engine light comes back on after the reset, then something has gone wrong with the repair.
Hope this helps.
