Best solution I've ever seen for noisy belts (assuming all pulley components are OK) is - replace belt with Goodyear Gatorback belt. Available at Summit Racing and perhaps JC Whitney, as well as many other places now. Has resolved belt squeal problems on all of our past MOPAR products.

    Try to spray some Anti-Squeal belt dressing on the belt and see if that helps, if not you must likely have a pulley or tensioner thats going bad.

    If that stops squeal, great!!! That means the pulleys are probably OK. Now - just as soon as you can, replace that belt with a Gatorback, because noise will return as soon as belt dressing wears off. How do I know that? Been there, done that, found the real solution.

What size belt do i need to bypass ac compressor o a 99 chrysler town & country?


I wouldn't because you need the defrost to work while in Rain with windows up or in the winter. Good luck with finding measurement for mini-van. Not many people void them.

2003 Chrysler Town & Country CODE P1698


My wife has a 97 town and country. For about 2 weeks the instrument panel
was going out then coming back on. A couple days ago it got bad. The van would start and run only several seconds then the engine would shut down.
I took the Instrument panel out and it started and stayed running. I pulled the
PC board found the bad Soder connections and resodered them. Problem
was gone and the P1698 code erased. Best thing is it did not cost me anything and the van is fixed !

01 chrysler tc mini van squeels when i start it and now is squeeling and pulling the steering wheel when i turn, does this mean i need a ned power steering pump?


No! It appears that your Serpentine Belt needs replacing. The squeal is due to the belt slipping because of it's age. The serpentine belt on a Chrysler is self adjusting so "high speed glaze" or "cracks" in the wide belt will tell you it needs replacement. The only other belt you have separate from the Serpentine Belt is the one for the Air Conditioner. Another word to the wise, never use "Belt Dressing" on these belts. It only makes them deteriorate faster. If you have an old table candle, while the engine's running, place the wax on the underside of the belt and the squeaking should go away. (I feel like, 'what to do with those darn Holiday leftovers'). To see the belt jumping or squealing, have someone start the van and look under the hood while they turn the steering wheel back and forth and you will see the belt "shudder" or "jump" while squealing. A timing light being pointed at the belt will also give you a "stop-action" view of the belt.

No Rack and Pinion yet. (smile) Hope this Helps,

Air conditioner only works on high 99 chrysler town and country van we change the switch and the motor and it still doen't work on lower settings


you need a blower resistor maybe a blower motor also but the resistor is for speeds and it usually goes when the blower motor starts to draw too much power the resistor is outside under the cowl on the passanger side you may need a connector pigtail also the dealer will have what you need

Van brakes squeal/whistle even when stopped


Sounds to me like a dry, loose or worn serpentine belt. With the motor idling, lightly spray the serpentine belt as it's spinning with WD-40 or other oil based lubricant (Don't spray near the alternator). If this doesn't work, turn the mortor off and check the tension and for cracks or worn spots. The brakes will not squeal when you are completely still.

I cannot start my 1997 chrysler town & country minivan. When I try to start it I get a "alarm set" reading. It starts for a minute then cuts off. HELP. I AM STRANDED.


I have a 97 Chrysler Town & Country Van with 104000 miles on it. The past two months the van will not start and run after driving for a while. Let it set for about an hour and it will start and run fine. When it does not want to run it will start and run for about 5 seconds then quit. During this time the dash instruments will not display but the radio, windows, and lights work just fine. The battery was replaced with in the past month so I don' t think that is the problem. Any seggestions?
