Question about 2002 Chrysler Town & Country
Attempted theft caused system to lock up and now I'm unable to start vehicle
The Internet, though, has a large number of web sites where
you can buy service manuals and schematics from bookstores,
publishers, and other collectors. Here is just a sampling of
what sites are out there:

You will need the IM05 immobilizer bypass module (69.95)
or you can not use your remote starter.

Verify around the steering column, if you see a square black box with a big plug into it, disconect the plug and try to start the car.

Check all fuses and switch relays that have the same numbers to find a dead relay.
Sounds like the battery died in the keyless entry as well as the battery in the car - but that is unusual unless you left the lights on or something and your keyless entry was already dying. When you turn ignition key on do you hear a click from the relays?
More input would help.
Could be the mechanism in the lock in door where, when you unlock door with key, alarm is deactivated - this switch or the wires in the door-jam have cracked possibly from the door opening and closing especially in cold weather like here, in Canada - so your theft system is not getting that signal that the key is turned to unlock. Check the wiring by opening the black sheath in between drivers door and the car-body between hinges - slice and remove sheath if necessary - check these wires carefully as the plastic may still be good around the broken wire.
Test the battery - try a boost!
Remove Positive battery post from car for 12 hours and then replace to reset ECM.
Check the ground wire from the battery to the body and perhaps run a temporary ground to the body from the battery to a bare spot or clean bolt, and then switch from the battery negative to the engine to see if any lights activate as a bad ground to the body.
At the Starter - there are usually 2 or more wires that group together from the big post into more wires (is live (positive) - there are black gummy-bears on these lines that are fusible links (remove positive battery post) and test with an ohmeter between each side of the black gummy-bear - if no ohmeter is available put a 12 volt light on some wires or run through a 12-volt battery or charger (wires must be removed from starter to prevent power from going through system to confirm that unit is good) you can then test these fusible links in that way.
Next perhaps I would remove the power Distribution Center (box with fuses and relays you already switched and eliminated as problem) next to the battery usually and check the wiring underneath it and wiggle the harness connections to see if anything lights up. being careful not to do damage to any connections. also look for vacuum lines that may be needing replacing while you are in this location but has nothing to do with present problem.
I really suspect a bad wire somewhere most of all.
There is a connector on the steeriing column under the dash that connects the ignition key switch to the power distribution center and the starter connections.
There are fuses under the dash to the left of the column at times and perhaps in the glovebox or behind it.
Hope this helps some and not to confuse you but electrical is lots of work. Just a few tips that may assist you.
East Coast Canada Rocks!

The ignition lock cylinder case, including the Passlock?"¢ sensor
The ignition switch
The body control module (BCM)
The security indicator on the instrument cluster
The powertrain control module (PCM)
Body Control Module (BCM)
The body control module (BCM) contains the logic of the Theft Deterrent System. The BCM provides the battery positive voltage to operate the Pass lock" sensor. The BCM also measures the voltage of the security sensor signal circuit. The voltage measured will indicate whether the Pass lock sensor has been activated and whether the resistance value from the sensor is a valid value or the tamper value. If voltage measured is in the valid range, the BCM compares this voltage, voltage code, to a previously learned voltage code. If the voltage codes match, the BCM sends a class 2 message containing a password to the powertrain control module (PCM). If the voltage codes do not match, or the voltage is in the tamper range, or there is a circuit fault, the BCM will not send the correct password to the PCM, and the vehicle will not start.
there is nothing you can do , if your vehicle won't start you need to take it to the dealer or a ASE certified repair shop. Messing with the anti-theft system may render your vehicle useless .
