Question about 1996 Chrysler Town & Country

2 Answers

2001 Chrysler Town & Country Van: When exiting the freeway at 70+ mph (daylight - dry concrete pavement, I realized I was going too fast to(comfortably) make the turn to the crossing road. I began braking hard (but not hard enough to kick in ABS cycling). I began to turn, still braking hard, and heard the tires squealing. Suddenly, it felt as though the power steering failed and it took all my strength to hold the steering wheel in the turn. A split second later, it felt like the power steering came back on and I finished making the turn normally. I don't think I felt anything like ABS cycling at any time during the turn. Is this normal ABS operation or some sort of ABS malfunction? Or a power steering malfunction?

It was the ABS system kicking in to try to keep the wheels from locking up. The squealing you heard was indeed the tires "sliding" across the surface in protest/resistance to your turning input thru the steering wheel. If you are not comfortable with that feeling go ahead and take it to the dealer/repair shop and have the ABS system checked/tested. (preferably the dealership)

Take it to the dealership, there wasn't a recall on this but there was a Tech Bulletin. The return hose from your power steering pump is too small, they replaced mine and I never had a problem again

Have you had your transmission serviced, lately. Something in your drive train may be causing this . However, it is only sporadic. The fluid level may be too low or the pump may be going bad.
