    my problem was with my ignition switch.

  • marquita reynolds Mar 30, 2014

    this vehicle is also known for wiring problems. so start with the ignition swith then if thats not the problem it would be the red cable that goes from battery to the starter

    My ignition switch once would not turn on so I shot a tight lubricant into the swich as well as lubing the key, thats about a year ago and no problem since. You may also diconnect your battery to reset the computer. Good luck.

Try disconnecting the battery, insert key and turn to on position, then connect battery.

SOURCE: 2000 Town and Country Intermittent Start.

I don't have a solution, but my 2000 town and country does the same thing. I just bought it a month ago and it started about a week after I bought it. I took it to my mechanic and he said the starter post were dirty and cleaned them, said that should fix it. Needless to say it's still doing it. I would love to know the reason as well. Anyone have any suggestions.

I hate to say this to you but make sure the engine is not locked up. If you can turn the engine, either by pulling on the belt, or by putting a wrench on the crankshaft bolt, try another starter. If you can't turn it, try another engine. (sorry for the insensitive attempt at humor)

SOURCE: 2003 Chrysler Town & Country, put in new alternator, now have 2 lights on including battery and one looking like a pump. Radio won't work.

Hello
The reason the battery light is on is that the charging system voltage is below the battery voltage, this means the charging system is not working correctly, since you already replaced the Alternator for I assume the same problem, unless you got a defective rebuilt (which is poss if bought from Autozone or one of the other discount parts stores) the charging system problem is not the Alternator but lies elsewhere in the electrical system. Use a volt meter and check the voltage at the battery cables with the engine running at high idle (at least 1000 RPM) the voltage should be at least 13.4 to about 14.2 Volts DC. This is also most likely the cause of the light that is on that you say looks like a pump due to the low charging system voltage. As to the radio it is in theft lock, this happens anytime the battery is disconnected, you will need to enter the unique security code for your radio, if you are not the original owner this may be a problem, as the little card with the code and the instructions to enter it often gets misplaced. You will likely end up at the dealer who can access the Chrysler factory computer and retrieve the code, there may be a charge for this.

It sounds like your immobilizer has kicked in and preventing you from starting. If you have a gray key and the security light is blinking, you will need to get it reprogrammed to restart this vehicle.
Good luck

If your van starts about 3 times. Immediately stops 3 times. Then doesn't start. You have a bad solder in your dash. Usually, the way to test is this is to spank the dash briskly. This seems to rejoin the bad solder and your Van with start. If this does the trick, take it to your repair person. Tell him to take out the instrument cluster and resolder the connections. This will fix it. We have fixed 2 or three vans the same way.

Is your security light flashing? If so, your onboard security system has disabled the starter. The security system can be reset (providing you are using the ORIGINAL key for the car) you may have to hook up a battery charger to accomplish this. First hook up the battery charger then when you get in the car, set the parking brake before turning the ignition on. This will keep the daytime running lights from coming on. Then turn the key to the RUN position and wait for the security light to stop flashing. (This takes about 10 minutes.) Then, without turning the key off, turn the key to the START position. The engine should start.

If this doen't work, you will probably have to wait until your wife gets home so you can reset the security system by using the remote to lock the unlock the doors.

I would also recommend investing in a second remote and key so you don't have this problem in the future. The second key and remote is pretty easy to progrm on your vehicle. This can be done either by the dealer or most aftermarket repair shops. You MAY even want to try to do it yourself. Instructions for programming additional keys and remotes are located in your Owner's Manual.
