problem #8

Town & Country 3.8L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 178,000 miles


I bought the card for the back side of the glove box and that didn't fix the problem. I found out when that card goes it stresses the blower or something along those lines so I was told to change the blower. Well that was no easy task the screws are hidden and almost impossible to get to! I did get it done...except one screw that I couldn't get into the spot even my son who's tiny hand could barely reach the spot could not get it started. I figured it was one screw and it has been fine. But I think I have to change the card again the blower only works on certain speeds again!

Currently it is cold, so I feel sorry for anyone with the same problem, as you have no choice but to enjoy free air conditioning till the engine warms up, as the fan is simply stuck in the on position. Can't wait till the temp gets to 95 this summer, and I have to wait for the A/C to kick in or I have to use it whether I like it or not.

Hope to resolve the problem way before that. It is looking like the fan motor and that switch that has been talked about here as the problem. Sure hope so.

The price of the repair is also much lower than what I have been quoted. Hope that is true too.

Thanks for this opportunity. Looking forward to any other ideas by your subscribers, as I just love my T.C Van.

The blowing is so loud that I could not hear the pharmacist over the intercom in the drivethru lane. It is very distracting and now we have to turn the radio higher just to hear it over the constant noise from the heater.

We did try to have it fixed, but it failed within a month and brought it back and failed again...so we gave up. We use it on high for air and heat, it's annoying but we're used to it by now.

Town & Country Limited V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 121,000 miles

The vents for my AC/Heater will only blow on high. The also blow even if I have turned the power button to off. It will then blow harder and the air comes from the bottom vents and is usually hot air. This is the most annoying thing ever!! This is the first American made car I have had in 20 years. It makes me want to trade it in for a Toyota. I plan on having it fixed, but I am scared to find out how much it is going to cost!

Town & Country LX V6

  • Automatic transmission

I feel this problem should be fixed on recall, because i have been told by others who have a Chrysler that they have or have had the same problem. who can afford to run their air on high with gas prices over $3.

Town & Country EX 3.8L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 120,300 miles

The AC/heater fan would only work on high. I replaced the fan speed module ($15 part located behind the glove box; very easy access) & all was well for about 3 months then same problem. The dealership parts counter guy said the blower motor was drawing too much current through the fan speed module which would short the lower speed resistors. He advised replacing both the blower motor ($125 part) & fan speed control module.
