The contact owns a 2001 Chrysler Town & Country. The contact stated that condensation from the instrument control panel air conditioning ducts fell through the vent on top of the radio and caused a short circuit which subsequently sent direct current to the rear speakers.

Many electrical problems, windows don't go up and down, radio and cd player does not work, fan on the heater does not come on at times, heated seats do not work, sliding door has come open while driving (very dangerous if you have kids). Popping noise in the front suspension. Still does it after being worked on.

Re: NHTSA campaign id# 04V531000, recall date: 11/01/2004 Chrysler Town and country van radio recall. Have had 2 radios in my van short circuit, the most recent one on 12/27/04. I asked Chrysler to replace it at the dealership, their customer care line and an escalation line, and have boon told they will not replace it under the warranty, and that my mileage of 64,000 is too high to warrant a replacement - of a radio. I am aware of the recall notice, and was told my VIN# 2C8gp641R265979 is not included in the recall. I believe my VIN# should be included in the recall as the van exhibits the exact issue that has been described in the recall notice. I was told to file a complaint with your organization to help resolve this issue. Please let me know what further action is required, thanks.
