Question about 1996 Chrysler Town & Country
Pretty sure you have a shorted power wire. If happens when you start car I would start checking the wires from the ignition switch to the starter and it's solenoid. The ignition switch is in the steering column and controls power to everything. Just be glad the ECM hasn't been fried. Don't start the car again until you find the cause. Make sure your battery is grounded very good, that's the only thing that spares your ECM from voltage spikes starting a car or jumping it. Think of these parts.. ignition switch, starter and solenoid that powers it, ASD relay that ECM tells to power pump and ignition coil pack (goes to plugs). This is where electricity is mainly going when you start the car. If you can't find any bare wires or detached grounds then I'd open column and look at ignition switch.
