1996 Chrysler Town & Country Owner Comments

problem #3

May 302005

Town & Country 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 117,500 miles


On a few seperate occasions while driving my 1996 Chrysler Town and country my daughters seatbelt has just released without any warning. During 3 sudden stops the seatbelts have unlatched by themselves and one time while driving down the road my seatbelt came undone after I adjusted myself in my seat. We just bought this van 2 months ago. Also, without warning the body control module took out my entire electrical system, including my radio. There should be a sensor that it is going bad before it actually goes. Even after going to jack powell Dodge to have it all fixed, the horn doesn't work, the stereo is messing up, the instrument cluster is messing up, and the windshield wipers don't seem to work properly.
