Question about 2009 Chrysler Town and Country
This week I noticed an off and on electrical smoke smell when driving. It might not happen for 1-2 hours then the faint smell appears for about 5-10 seconds then disappears. I checked under the hood but didn't smell it there. All the gauges are fine, the vehicle is not running hot, no dash lights are on. What could this be?
Oil leaking onto the exhaust. Poor ignirtion switch connections causin ghe switch to overheat.

SOURCE: Very hot car.
I'd test the fan by connecting it directly to the battery to verity it is functioning. If it is, check the relays that control the fans they should be located in the fuse box in the engine bay. If the relays are ok the only other thing that could be causing the problem is the temp sensor on the radiator.

First check to make sure all the harness plugs on the PCM are pushed in and tight. It happened to me.
Then check your grounds.
And you need to get that multi switch replaced to fix that fog light problem. Just remember to take the relay off of the old one and replace it on the new one.

white smoke usualy tells about a leakage in the cooling. check that. dont forgett to refill. get it repaired or DIY. attention: could be really hot.
if it smells like fuel, a fuel line is broken. then dont drive any more since it can catch fire.
if the smoke is not white, go to the repair shop instantly.

Hello lybolts3...You will need a digitial multimeter to help troubleshoot this problem. With this you can help determine the problem. No doubt you have more than 5 amps through the circuit, causeing the fuse to blow.Check the actual amperage and voltage at the fuse box, make sure it has a good ground... a bad ground will have the same effect as a short...If you have a good ground, 12 volts and bus voltage on the plus and minus
bus wires the cluster should work. both bus wires should be around 2.5 volts. If one of the bus wires is 2.2v the other should be 2.3v and so on. The back of the instrument cluster where the connectors attach is another place to check...clusters have been known to fail..a bad soder or corroded pin. Last but not least..the ignition switch and the BCM...the gauges get their info from the BCM and the switch powers it.
Good luck..i hope this helps..please rate me a fixya.
