Question about 2002 Chrysler Town & Country
Wet sand the entire smooth surface of the cover with 1000 grit sandpaper till it looks about like a sheet of wax paper. Some masking tape on the surrounding paint is a good idea. The oxidation is only on the surface and comes off fairly quick, but you may have to work through wax, clearcoat and walmart fixit stuff. Rub till clear with red rubbing compound. Then polish with white compound. Finally wax with UV inhibiting wax every time you wash car. The Walmart stuff peels off in about a year, and does not remove the yellow oxidation. The end result is worse than before. This fix also works on taillights.

I had the same problem on my 1996 Chrysler T&C. I purchased a kit from Walmart that reconditions the plastic cover. I restores it to ~70% of its original clearity. It is in a pauch approximatly 8"X10". Everything you need is included in the kit. Some sanding is required.

I have the same problem on my 1999 Town & Country. It's very common and has to do with the material used for the headlight covers. My body shop told me the covers can be replaced and that will cure the problem, but only temporarily as the new ones will do the same thing in a short period of time.
Meanwhile, I just drive with the brights on. I travel lots of two-lane highways and country roads and haven't had a problem with oncoming drivers signaling me that my brights are on. I assume since the lights are so dim for me, that the same holds true for the oncoming drivers.
