Question about 2001 Chrysler Town & Country

Open Question

2005 Town & Country, dash lights and gauges flicker

Doesn't seem to occur on a regular basis. All the gauges drop down, the brake and ABS lights come on, and I am not sure, but I think the driving lights dim. This happens only for a second. Even when this is not noticable on the gauges it looks like the dash lights are flickering very fast.

SOURCE: Flickering Headlights and Dim interior lights

Definately an electrical problem....first off, check the battery and alternator connections to make sure they are tight. The problem has to be before the fuse box because the headlights and interior lights are on different fuses. It sounds to me like a loose wire, corroded battery terminals, or an alternator that is going bad. An alternator is a relatively easy and cheap fix. They cost about $100 and require removing a few wires, 3 bolts, and the serpentine belt.

SOURCE: abs light stays on

No need to untill you fix it. Bad abs senser or sencers. And you need the decoding tool to reset.

Abs light on


go to parts store & check codes. sometimes they do it for free that will tell you if theres is a wheel speed sensor bad. also check all the brake lights some vehicles will disable the abs if there is an open circuit (bad light bulb)

2005 town & country gauges stopped working. no brake lights,flashers,turn signal,no temp,fuel,speedometer or brake lights.head lights and tail lights come on and and everything else works.


Look for a bad ground...if you have a shop manual or sometimes the dealership will print you off that page, look for the major ground going to those devices.

Town and country 2001 while driving on the freeway my abs light turn on


Okey

You have never had any type of check light
on the dash of any vehicle before?

ABS --- is the electrical part of your braking
system. No different than any other dash light

Still an OBD2 System Malfunction, that has to
be diagnosed & repaired

You gave us no codes & even then, there could
be several possible causes for the light coming on

A Wheel Speed Sensor is a fairly common item
that fails

Hi...i have a 2005 chrysler town & country sto & go LX 3.3L V-6 mini van....for some reason the brakes r acting up....sometimes they work sometimes the pedal goes all the way to the floor....master...


its sounds like it could be a bad master cylinder with an internal leak.it could also be a problem with the abs hydraulic module that for some reason is bypassing brake fluid within the unit itself.these problems won`t neccessarily turn on the dash light or activate the abs light.

2005 Chrysler town and country abs light on, but no trouble codes showing. car brakes seem to be fine.


We own a 2005 Chrysler Pacifica (3.8 litre) and currently have the same problem. This has happened at least 2 other times on our vehicle. Our trouble code was for a faulty ABS wheel sensor, and after searching the internet I found A LOT of other Pacifica owners had the same problem. The first time this happened to us, it was covered under the Chrysler warranty. The second time, it cost about $275 to repair. This is something that only a Chrysler / Dodge dealer can diagnose and repair. At first, we went to Firestone and they preceded to replace the brake pads, rotors, flushed the master cylinder and nothing they did seemed to work. Finally, I went to the Chrysler dealer and they immediately diagnosed the problem and fixed it. I am not sure if the computer will actually report a trouble code for the ABS problem or not. I will warn you that even though the brakes seem fine, eventually they WILL fail on you and you will have SIGNIFICANTLY reduced stopping power. Our light went on while we were down the interstate at 70 mph, and let me tell you that was a very scary situation with me, wife and two kids with NO CONTROL over how fast we could stop. Take your vehicle to the dealer and get fixed, it's not worth risking an accident. Good luck!

2006 Town & Country ABS light stays on


when the abs light comes on your car is letting you know that it has shut down the abs system because of a problem. so you are braking with regular conventional brakes which is perfectly safe. any time a component of the antilock brake system malfuntions the abs system is shut off and the light will come on to let you know. the most common problem is that the wheel speed sensors go bad. a trouble code will be stored in the abs control module you can have the abs module scanned to see what the problem may be. But dont worry you car is safe to drive. you just dont have the antilock brake option.
