Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2001 Chrysler Town & Country Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 012011

Town & Country Limited 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 121,167 miles


Every time I start my van a different headlight works and sometimes all of them. Replaced the front Control Module twice and still the same with used part cost of front control module $650.00 new at the dealer.

After talking to a Chrysler dealership, it is a common problem with 2001 up to 2006 and no recall. Chrysler says headlights not working is not a safety issue.

It turned out to be a faulty fuse box and new is $870.00 plus $300.00 to reprogram all the computers and installation .

About $1500.00 to get your headlights to work.

Used fuse boxes may not program right.

Solution, rewire the lights bypassing the fuse box and installing a fuseable link and switch.

Not sure on costs yet.

This has been a issue for a few years now.

Whatever happened to a on/off switch or have all the lights start when you turn on your vehicle.

I think Chrysler wants me to bail them out of bankruptcy.

Update from Mar 9, 2015: If you have a Dodge van with headlight issues this might be a cheap fix

There is a fix you can try for the headlight problem with Dodge vehicles This is a known issue when a bulb blows. The burned out bulb caused the TIPM to turn the circuit off. You need to reset the TIPM by one of 3 methods:

1) disconnect the negative cable from the battery over night 2) disconnect both cables from the battery and hold them together for 10 minutes 3) have the dealer reset it.

I tried a ton of different ways to resolve this problem until I found you could reset the TIPM myself with the turn of a wrench. Blast you Dodge for trying to get even MORE of my hard-earned money.
