Question about 2002 Chrysler Town & Country
Check the instrument panel fuses. This should be two 10
Amps each fuses labeled instrument panel. If you cannot find them, replace all ten Amps in the in-car panel. In the underhood panel look for the fuses labeled Memory-iod or iod, I think it is fuse number 10 or 15. It should also be 10 Amp. Check also the fuse number 5 , that should be a 40 Amps.
Check the battery cables. Disconnect and connect back first ground, then battery cable. Ensure that you have the car stereo anti-theft code if needed. It should be printed in the car documents.
Check ground cable to engine block, ensure that all cables starting from the battery are well connected.
Check the cables connected to the back of the stereo. This can often cause shorts.
The EBL relay, located near the lower left corner of the junction block , on top of the fuse bank must be tested or swapped with one of the same type. This can also cause the problem.
If that does not do the job, check the connectors to the ECU and BCM must be tested. The ECU is located under the hood, near to the battery and the distribution center.
The ECU has 2 40 PIN connectors hooked to it. Disconnect battery ground first, then check connectors. Follow the leads and check if there is any apparent damage or broken connection. Disconnect and plug back each connector. Do not touch the PINs, the EeCU is sensitive to electrostatic charge.
If that is not the problem next step is taking apart the dash and checking the connectors at the back of the instrument panel.
In some case the ECU is faulty and must be replaced.
Most of the time is a fuse that blew because of an accidental reason. If the fuse blows again, then there is a fault.
Check the fuses, wires, connectors and the battery. Checking ECU and instrument panel connector is better done by a mechanic.
I am not sure of the exact fuse location at the moment. I see if I can find a detailed fuse map for the 1997 Town and Country.
