The contact owns a 2001 Chrysler Town and country. The contact noticed that the driver's side air bag warning indicator was illuminated on the instrument panel. The dealer was unable to diagnose the failure and stated that there were no recalls pertaining to the failure. In addition, her VIN was excluded from NHTSA campaign id number 07V192000 (air bags:frontal:sensor/control module). The contact was concerned of the safety risk involved. The failure mileage was 55,000 and current mileage was 70,000. Updated 04-14-09 updated 04/16/09.

2001 Chrysler Town and country mini-van 1) clockspring failure- airbag malfunctions and associated electrical failure- there is a current recall on other Chrysler models and years, why not this one when it is the identical problem? significant bodily injury potential- requesting recall on this model. 2) faulty driver's side power window regulator- pervasive on all Chrysler vehicles resulting in safety issues.

Chrysler 2001 Town & Country at 77468 miles airbag light on the dash came on and stayed on with intermittent blinking off and then on. Took it to hayes Chrysler. Their invoice states "tech verified and ran electrical diag where he found passenger side squib open". consequences were that if an accident had occurred, then the passenger side airbag would not have deployed. Fix was to replace passenger side airbag module.

The airbag light came on and stays on in my 2001 Chrysler Town & Country. At the same time, the cruise control became inoperable and the dashboard lights stopped working. When we took it to the dealer, we were told that the problems were all related to the onboard computer and that it could take thousands of dollars just to diagnose the problem. They said some 2001's were recalled but "not your VIN #." asked if there was a problem with the airbag or whether it would deploy, we were told there was no way of knowing without doing the major diagnostics. They refused to give an estimate or a ceiling on the price. This is unfair and we are worried that the airbag will not deploy and that there may be significant instability in the on-board computer which could lead to a serious safety problem.

  • Automatic transmission

Air bag alert light comes on repeatedly while driving and when doing so the air bag is no longer functional. The duration of this event can be from ten seconds to twenty minutes. Have taken it to numerous Chrysler dealers who in each instance state that they cannot duplicate the problem. We have lost at a minimum twenty days of time that the car was in the shop for this complaint. The most recent was visit (4/30-5/1/03) and were told the problem was repaired. Not so. The first time the car was driven on 5/1/03 the light again came on. My concern is with the dealer's advisory that the air bag is not functioning when the light is on and this could result in a catastrophic incident. The vehicle has been inspected for this problem repeatedly at verger Chrysler in coos bay, Oregon and fisher Chrysler in yuma, Arizona.
