My Chrysler Town and country van started having what looked to be battery issues at the beginning of 2015. The engine would turn off and all the dash dials would begin to puslate until I turned it off and restarted it. At first it would do this only when it was raining out, so we changed the battery and it seemed to work. Then one afternoon it just completely shut down as we were driving down the road, sun shining, and completely dry out. We check the battery connections and replaced a few, seemed ok but then it happened again! this time as we were driving down a 70mph highway! thankfully the highway was not busy as the moment and near our exit and were able to safely get to the side and restart the van. We continue to take it in but everyone has told us "no engine light, no engine code, sorry can't help you." We have seen others write about this same problem and are now bringing it to the NHTSA.

The air bag warning light comes on and stays on for a few minutes, to over an hour, every few days or so, and, due to faulty air bad sensors being an NHTSA issue with 06 Chrysler this is cause for great concern for me and my family; for the 1 1/2 years I have owned this Town & Country I have continual problems with exterior and interior lights, blinking on and off, headlights and/or parking lights staying on after I've turned the lights off and then turn the car off. I continue replacing relay switches and parts. On, the parking lights are staying on after I've turned everything off, and; while driving off normally the transaxle whistles, screeches and bogs down when changing gears, even though transaxle fluid is changed regularly and filter is clean.

We have had problems with our Town & Country since we bought it a few months ago. There is a problem with the electric. All of the gauges, radio, dash lights flash on and off erratically. The worst part is that the car completely shut off one time. It went completely dead! I put it in park and tried to restart it but it did nothing. Some people came over and were offering to push me to a safe spot. I was very grateful because I had my two small children in the car with me. I tried to put the car in neutral but it wouldn't even let me shift gears. I just kept trying and trying and trying to start it. It finally started again and I hurried home. Another scary incident happened just two days ago when we had a lot of slushy rain and snow coming down. The flashing started again and then the windshield wipers stopped working. I could not see anything! luckily I made it to a side street before running into anything or anyone! we have spent about $2K trying to get the problem fixed to no avail. I called and emailed Chrysler but since it was just over the 80K mile warranty, they weren't interested. They said I could buy a new warranty but it wouldn't cover pre-existing conditions. I have read many other online posts about others having this same problem with their Town and country. I hope there is something you can do! thanks for your time!

I purchased a 2006 Chrysler T/C mini van since I have bought it I have had numerous problems with the brakes they even locked up on the highway once I took it to the dealer and there response was unable to reproduce problem had front brakes replaced, caliper, disc ect.had a cross bar that holds the wheel break off was told by dealer it was a design flaw since I've had this car I keep telling the dealer that I believe it to have problems with the front end including the brakes in Jan 2010 I took my car to midas to have the brakes done there I was told that it was the 3 car to be brought in for the same reason when they inspected the car they noticed that the front end or the rack and pinion is leaking and has been for some time.in total since 11/2006 that I took delivery of the car I have paid close to if not over $3000 due to front end problems please check into this because as I said before the cars brakes locked up on the highway once before the sad thing is the warranty is gone and I believe this car to have been a lemon. But know that there have been so many problems with different cars maybe someone will listen and have this brand also checked.
