#754 of 2583 Flashing climate control lights (holland11) by ketterd Aug 16, 2001 (8:23 pm)
I just replaced the battery on my 1999 Town & Country and had the same problem you described. Four lights blinked on and off together. My resourceful wife was speaking to a Chrysler customer support person about an unrelated issue and happened to ask about the flashing lights. Somehow this person knew what to do:
1) Start the vehicle and let it idle
2) Turn the AC blower switch to its highest setting (all the way to the right)
3) Turn the AC mode switch to the 'panel' setting (all the way to the left)
4) Set the temperature level to cold for both the driver and passenger sides
5) Depress the Rear Washer and Rear Wiper buttons at the same time and hold for 5 seconds
6) The Rear Wiper, Rear Intermittent Wiper, A/C, and Recirculation buttons will now flash alternately (not in unison as before). Let the van continue to idle. One by one, the lights will stop blinking until only the Rear Wiper light blinks. When this happens, press the Rear Wiper button to end the sequence.
My wife actually performed this voodoo ritual and it worked. So I don't get to take credit for my incredible knowledge of cars or for fixing the problem. But I do get to pass the information on. Good luck.
Found this--Hope it helps! ----alr

It sounds like the clock spring issue, for which there were recalls, but I do not believe there was a recall for the 2001 model year.
The clock spring in this case has nothing to do with a clock but is a spring which can fail in the steering column and cause problems like you are having.
Our 1996 Caravan had a recall to replace the clock spring, though we had not been having problems.

Has anyone had any experience with a Grand Voyager van shaking(slightly) when going between 35 and 50 mph? It stops once I reach 55mph and beyond.I'm fearful that it's the transmission. I have had 3 transmissions in this car. The last one a rebuild 47000 miles and I now have 88k miles so warranty is null and void.Could a snow tire produce this type of shaking? Thanks in advance.

Sounds like a tire or possibly a bent rim problem more than transmission. Are your tires evenly worn or is their signs of cupping? Uneven tire wear can have a variety of causes related to bad tires or wheel alignment issues. Snow tires are inherently more noisy than regular tires but shouldn't result in shaking. It also could be a wheel unbalance issue, though that many times seems to peak at about 60-65 MPH for most vehicles.

According to alldatadiy.com:
1. Remove lower right instrument panel.
2. Remove blower housing mounting screws.
3. Allow assembly to drop and remove from vehicle.
4. Reverse procedure to install.

Having the same ignition problem with 97 Town & Country. Will not start after engine is warm... no sound from the starter... nothing else dims so figure it is not the battery. Has anyone resonded to your post?
#2591 of 4276 2001 Chrysler T&C LE - Blower Motor Replacement
Apr 02, 2005 (11:00 pm)
I would like some advice on replacing the front blower motor on my 2001 Chrysler T&C. Is this a task that an intermediate skilled DIY guy can handle? The service manual says that the instrument panel has to be removed as well as disconnecting the A/C lines and the heater hoses.
Anyone attempted this chore? Any tips or lessons leaned to pass on?
#2592 of 4276 fuel light and chime come on for no apparent reason

99 Chrysler T & C has a fuel light and chime that come on for no apparent reason. Tank has a full tank of gas and the needle will go back and forth as the chime and indicator light comes on. Help! Thanks

Reviewing the message board, I have seen discussions about automatic transmissions and related computer problems. Here is what my GV Minivan does:
Since we purchased it, sometimes the windshield wipers will turn on when using the turning signal.
About 2 years ago, we had a transmission seal replaced after we noticed small amount of puddling on the garage floor. I added trans fluid before we got it fixed to make sure it did not go dry.
The transmission works fine now except when it has been cold out (below 32 degrees) and the vehicle has not run for a couple days. After we back it out of the garage under those conditions, we put it in drive and the transmission will not engage. It acts like it is in neutral. We gun the engine a couple times and finally it will go into gear. It may happen one more time if we have to stop within a short distance but will operate fine after that for the drive and the day.
Two times after the above issue occurred, the transmission will not shift out of a low gear. We stop the vehicle, turn it off and back on. The transmission will then shift OK. I saw others had this problem on the message board.
I suspect there may be a computer problem since the vehicle has a history of computer issues (wipers/turning signals). Can anyone provide in site or similar experiences?
