Question about 1999 Chrysler Town & Country

1 Answer

I have a 2002 town & Country and think the BCM is bad

I have lost the map and dome lights, the visor lights, the over head console, power door locks, all functions for AC and rear window defrost and the key fab functions. Can you tell me where the Body Control Module is on a 2002 Town & Country and what does it look like

    All the fuses are good.I hooked up to a scaner that will scan the BCM and no DTC were set. All the switches work as displayed on the scanner. They toggle when activated. The problem is that I can’t get one from Chrysler because of the bankruptcy. Chrysler did not pay Continental the supplier of these modules and Continental will not send out any until they get paid by Chrysler.

    Nice eh, they screw up & now your stuck. Dealer should be able to check other dealers inventory, or an auto recycler may be your only choice right now, just make sure it's exact same part # on it. Yours should be up under passenger side of dash, but other years close to yours had them up under dash by fuse panel on drivers side, so better check both.

Can't get dome lights on when door is opener even with override switch off?


The following lamps may be manually turned ON by placing the interior lamp switch in the ON position, or by opening a door while the switch is in the AUTO position.
?€¢
The dome lamp


?€¢
The liftgate lamps


?€¢
Courtesy/map lights

The courtesy lamp supply voltage circuit of the body control module (BCM) supplies battery positive voltage to the dome lamp, the liftgate lamps, and the map lamps. When any door is opened, the door jamb switch contacts close providing a door open input to the BCM. The BCM then provides a ground to the interior lamps with the switch in the AUTO position. The interior lamps receive a ground at G401 with the switch in the ON position.
Important: If the liftgate is opened after all the modules go to sleep, the dome light will not come on. The liftgate ajar switch input to the BCM will not wake up the BCM once it has gone to sleep, so the dome light will not come on. Once the BCM gets an input to wake it up, from remote keyless entry (RKE) or a door handle, the dome light will turn on when the liftgate is opened.
If the driver inadvertently leaves any interior lamp ON, the BCM will turn it OFF after a 20 minute time-out.
The courtesy lamps will turn OFF immediately if the ignition switch is turned to the ON position or approximately 20 seconds after all doors are closed.
The courtesy lamps are controlled by the body control module (BCM). Inputs from the dome lamp switch and the door ajar switches are monitored by the BCM. When a door ajar switch is closed, or the dome lamp switch is turned to the ON position, the BCM supplies the B+ for the courtesy lamps.
With out a factory Tech2 scan tool or equivalent an knowing how these systems work ,you best bet is to take your vehicle to the dealer or some other ASE certified repair shop !

Which fuse controls the map lights in the 2002 jeep liberty


map light? and no symptoms..

the dimmers on the HL stalk. (held lamp , park dash dimmer)
if the power to the map is dead so will many other things be dead.
lost the 2002 operators guide, ?
in cars 1 fuse runs many things. thus my others dead comment.
why not be clear, , the overhead dome map light. say where
hand is, because many cars have dash map lamps, so.....
my hand is on the DOME light above and its what DEAD?
i log into alldata.com so can you.
i look at this schematic, and there are 2 lamps
MAP and cargo, map is the traditional DOME. lamp now MAP.
but they both use the same fuse. so are both dead.?front and rear?
or both stuck on? what are the symptoms.?

both lamps have manual direct control (sw) PUSH THEM ?
If not in manual mode, there are controlled by the BODY computer BCM..
both run off JB1, fuse 34.
now i bet the next question is where is fuse 34, well its in the JB.
and where is JB its at your left knee, (USA only LHD only. comments )
fuse 34 runs the foot courtesy lamps... are they dead?
and visor vanity.
there are 2 fuse boxes. one in engine bay and one in cab, some cars
3.
JB =means cab
PDC fuse box is engine bay, Jeep lingo...
JB is in plain view above left ankle, look down then up and left.
bingo JB.
the box had fuse and relay ID's
the operators guide shows , all the fuses and name.

i dont have the OP guide so cant find the name for Fuse 34.
but there is no need yet if the other lamps work then FUSE 34 is good.
and is 15amps.

The interior lights will not come on when door opens, the visor lamps will NOT light no matter what, radio lights work normally the turn signal lamps blink fast, but all bulbs light


For the turn signal flashing fast - MAKE SURE you have all bulbs flashing that are SUPPOSED to be flashing. The front side marker lamps are part of this equation.

As for the interior (dome and visor) lamps, there is a fuse labeled "CTSY LAMP" in the fuse block. The lamps themselves are controlled by the body control module (BCM). The CTSY LAMP fuse only provides input power to the BCM. I would start with a scan of the BCM to see if it can shed any light (No pun intended) on your problem.

I can not locate the Fuse for the center dome light in a 2005 Chrysler Town and Country. The bulb is good. The ground is good. Just no power on the hot lead.


I believe power comes from the body control module . so if other interior lights work, there may be an open circuit ...somewhere. I would see the dealer or a good shop that has a scanner that communicates with the BCM

2003 Town and Country drivers side window will not work. Could this be a switch or possibly the regulator. Any way to check? Thanks,


There is an easy way to check for power to the motor from the switch. With the door open (dome light on) and the key on (engine off) engage the switch in either direction. The dome light will dim slightly if power is getting to the motor indicating a draw on the circuit. You may have to do this several times looking closely at the dome light for any change in intensity. If it dims in both up and down directions, the motor/regulator is bad.

Saturn Turn Signal / Dome Light Issues


The interior lamps system consists of 2 main features. Illuminated entry and a battery saver feature that will turn the interior lights off after 20 minutes if they are left On with all doors closed and the ignition Off. The body control module (BCM) controls both of these functions. Battery power is supplied by the BCM through CKT 1732 to the following lamps:
• The dome lamp
• The map lamps
• The rear reading lamps
• The rear dome lamp
• The cargo lamp
• The glove compartment lamp
• The courtesy lamps
• The sunshade lamps
The BCM also controls the ground circuit side of the dome lamp and reading lamps for illuminated entry. The dome lamp and reading lamp will remain on for 20 seconds after the ignition key is removed and the last door is closed. In addition, if the vehicle is equipped with remote keyless entry (RKE), the dome and reading lamps will turn On and stay on for 20 seconds after an UNLOCK signal is received from the keyless entry transmitter.
The reading lamps, dome lamp and map lamps can be turned On at any time by moving the appropriate switch to the On position.
The rear dome lamp is fed battery voltage through CKT 1732 from the BCM, through the liftgate ajar switch, and is grounded through CKT 650 to the rear ground splice pack. The rear dome lamp will turn on when the liftgate is opened. The cargo lamp is fed battery voltage through CKT 1732 from the BCM, through CKT 744 and grounded through the decklid ajar switch.
The courtesy lamps are fed battery power through CKT 1732 and are grounded through CKT 745-- left front, CKT 747--left rear, CKT 748--right rear, CKT 746--right front. These circuits will ground through the door jamb switches. The courtesy lamp will be illuminated when the affected door is opened. For example, when the right rear door is opened, the right rear door courtesy lamp will turn on.

Not a fuse problem , if the BCM had blown fuse other thing's wouldn't be working as well . . Probably wiring or BCM . Using factory diagnostic,s instead of guessing as to what the problem is , is the proper way .

Interior Lamps Diagnosis
Symptom
Procedure
Important: Before proceeding with these diagnostics, check for DTCs. If DTCs are present, complete the associated diagnostics. If the condition still exists, return to this chart.
All of the interior lamps are inoperative when any door is opened.
Chart 1
The dome lamp is inoperative in the ON position, but OK in the door position. The map lamps operate normally.
The dome lamp switch is faulty. Replace the dome lamp switch.
The dome lamp is inoperative in the DOOR position, but is OK in the ON position.
Chart 2
The dome lamp is inoperative in any position and both reading lamps are inoperative.
Disconnect the dome lamp connector (BLK 3-way).
Check for voltage at terminal "C" CKT 1732 ORN wire.
If OK, the dome/map lamp is faulty. If no voltage is present, there is an OPEN in CKT 1732.
Either the right or the left sunshade mirror lamp is inoperative.
Chart 3
Either the right or the left rear reading lamp is inoperative in the ON or the DOOR position.
Chart 4
The rear reading lamp is inoperative in the ON or the DOOR position.
Chart 5
Battery rundown protection is shorted to ground - B1482.
B1482
The left rear reading lamp is inoperative in the ON or the DOOR position.

Get a wiring diagram. Unplug connector from BCM and do a continuity check on each door at the BCM. That'll tell you whether it's a door switch, wiring or BCM problem
