Question about 1998 Chrysler Town & Country
I have a 2004 Town and Country. The radio, windshield wipers, electric windows, and ac blower stop working occasionally. Oddly enough they will work if I turn the key backwards, but will not work if the van is running. Sometimes I can get them back working by unplugging a relay and plugging it back in. This only works sometimes. Also there is a clcking noise that seems to be coming from the relay/fuse box located under the hood beside the battery.
It's probably a ground issue ,looking at wiring diagrams to see what these all have in common would be the first place to start ! Do you know anything about automotive electrical systems an circuits ? How to read a wiring diagram ? You can find free wiring diagrams here http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html Enter vehicle info. year , make , model and engine size . Under system click body & accessories , then under subsystem click on the thing's your having problems with ,like wiper / washers . Then click the search button ,then the blue links . In the first diagram you will see a couple of relays for the wipers ,, plus they are located in the intergrated power module . Also in that box you will see the front control module . These are all computer controlled systems . Having a scan tool that can check codes in this modules would be a first step to take . If no codes are present , checking power and ground circuits for the problem systems . Do you know how to trouble shoot automotive electrical circuit's ?

Having a repair manual from alldata would be a good thing to have , it would show all ground locations . Also how to take thing's apart to get at them . Some grounds maybe behind the insturment panel or behind kick panels etc.... This would show all that !

chrysler has released a flash for the hvac sytem to reconfigure the mode door. would have to take it to the dealer. but would be covered under 3/36k warranty

Yes you can adjust them yourself. First you need to check that the wiper arms are not bent. If not, remove the cap at the wiper arm base, under it u will find a nut, remove this nut. you should now be able to remove the wiper arm. (it is comon for caravan wiper arms to be corroded on. If the arm dosen't come off, you may need to heat up the wiper arm with a propane torch. be careful not to melt the plastic cowel under the arm. OR you can use a wiper puller or a battery puller. do not force it, you can break the arm, DO NOT PRY AGAINST THE COWEL OR WINDSHIELD.
Once both arms are off, turn your van on and turn the wipers on. watch the wiper posts, turn the wipers off and watch the wiper posts return and stop in the "parked" position. Turn the van off. Install the passanger wiper arm first, it is positioned closest to the bottom an inch or two above the black cowel. It should be parrallel to the cowel. next install the drivers side wiper arm. it is positioned about 4 inches above the passanger wiper. again running parrallel to the cowel and passanger wiper. tighten the lock nuts down (do not over tighten) wet down your windshield with glass cleaner or windshield washer fluid and test wipers. If they still hit you can lower the passanger one a little or raise the drivers one a little (careful you don't raise the drivers one too much or it will 'jump' off the windshield at the top of the wipe).
good luck, hope this helps.
