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.
