Thanks for the imput!!
ORIGINAL FUEL PUMP lasted 13 yrs, 1 mo. 2nd PUMP lasted 16 mos. 3rd PUMP lasted 6 wks. Now 4 wks into 4th PUMP.
TODAY, went back to my local GOODYEAR Service Center which has done majority of recent repairs including FUEL PUMP, CAT, SENSORS, etc. They put in NEW IAC MOTOR.
Car was fine after repair for most of day NOW SAME DAMN PROBLEM again but Hesitation, Back-fire, etc is much less than before.
Any other ideas??
This is getting frustrating with a vehicle that until now, 14 yrs, 8 mos, has been extremely realiable

Some further info
Back to GOODYEAR today-- discovered that coil not putting out proper voltage & 2 cylinders misfiring.
After replacing coil & MAP Sensor again still same problem
CONCLUSION-- bad computer. Outside badly corroded & electrical harness connection not in great shape either
Seems computer is mounted on firewall in such a position as to get constantly soaked in rain or snow
What the hell were the design engineers thinking on this one?
At least the computer is supposed to be less costly than the fuel pump

My 1998 Dodge Van from Canada has had 2 rotted brake lines in the last 5 weeks. no crash, but scary brake failure. Now the mechanic tells me that 13 more lines are at risk. time for a honda.

2001 T&C Limited/80,00kms-I occasionally have the same problem with my ignition key. So far I have been able to just remove the key and insert it with the opposite side of the key. This has not happened for a few months now.

2001 T&C LImited-You are exactly right. Without that longer drain tube installed the condensate is forced back against the firewall where it penitrates the drain opening around the tube and leaks inside on the passenger carpet area. Mine did the same thing until DC techs put the extension tube on the factory drain tube. There is a TSB regaurding this problem and your DC techs should be consulting these factory buletins before trying to make any repairs. I am certain that I won't have the wet carpet issue again.

2001 T&C LIMITED 80,000kms -I too have had problems with the driver's heated seat since I took ownership at 21,000kms. Under warranty, they replaced the seat cushion heater grid a few times and when I insisted they repair this problem properly, they finally had to order and replace the whole seat back portion of the seat which retailed at $1700 Canadian. Further investigation on my part revieled that this was a common factory problem and the seat back heater grid is sewn in the assembly and can't be replaced separatly. The cost of the seat back is so high because,my van is equipped with side air bags which are part of the seat back assembly.

After having the car in the shop three times, this is the progress report:
1. Repair shop claim on my receipt that they found the short by doing the following.
2. Repair shop install a new ignition switch.
3. Repair shop install a new safety switch.
4. Repair shop install a new starter.
After having the car for 20 minutes, Once again the car won't start, so the vehicle is tow, this time:
5. Repair shop removed my car alarm b/c they claim that was the problem.
I get the car back Friday night park in my garage the next morning, guess what...Saturday morning the car is back on tow to the shop!
6. Since Saturday the car has been back in the shop.
If anyone had this expirince with this vehicle, please let me know.

Take a look at the problems I'm having with my '91 Voyager!
Your problem COULD BE a faulty AUTO-SHUT OFF RELAY
Had that problem during the summer ( car wouldn't start-- initially CHRYSLER dealer thought fuel pump was bad) BUT I had dashboard lights
Your Voyager has tons more electronics than my '91 version

Take a look at my Message# 3407
THAT could be the problem OR the electrical harness connection to the computer which is supposed to be my problem
