Hi. I hope by now you have solved this. For others with this problem, however, have your fuel pump wiring checked. A rodent had chewed through mine (1997 T&C), resulting in continuous successful engine cranking without ignition, because the engine was not getting fuel. Repair of the wiring took care of it. Do not let the mechanic charge you for an expensive fuel pump replacement until they have first checked out the wiring!
Let me know if this helps.

the problem is that my van would start one day and it would be fine for a couple days to a week. Then out of no where, the van doesn't start anymore until a couple days later. The mileage light on the dashboard doesn't turn on resulting that the car doesn't start.

#265 of 659 Power Door Locks
Sep 05, 2008 (11:49 am)
I have a 2005 Dodge Caravan. The power door locks have been going nuts. They will unlock and lock when it wants too and it keeps going until it wants to stop. I mean we lock it at night and in the morning the doors are unlocked. I just tryed unhooking the battery. No Help. I also pulled the fuse someone said and no help. Has anyone else had this problem and was able to fix it please let me know.

Sometimes a weak battery causes the electircal system to go haywire. Consider having a charging system check to make sure the alternator is charging the battery properly. If the battery is weak, then replace it. Good luck.

my 97 T&C lx - does the same thing... gauges go out & power door locks go out airbag lights but "clears" like normal but brake stays on. Some minutes later the "take me to the repair shop $$" light comes on. The problem can last a few days or a few minutes. All of a sudden everything begins working. The "repair light" will stay on for maybe a day and then it goes out. Think that's the circuit problem too. Is it ieasy to find and to get to or do you have to un install it?

#270 of 659 Battery Drain--Trans Control Relay Is Always On
Sep 28, 2008 (4:27 pm)
I have a 1999 Chrysler T&C Limited with a 3.8L engine. For the past couple of weeks the battery has been draining quicker than it should. I have found that the Transmission Control Relay is energized even when the ignition key is off. With the key off, when I pull out the fuse for the Transmission Control Module the battery drain goes down to normal and when I re-insert the fuse the Transmission Control Relay clicks on and the battery drain increases. What would cause the Transmission Control Relay to be energized when the ignition key is off?

I've had the same problem with my '99 t&C LXi. I thought there was something that was draining my battery over a period of time. Turns out it was a defective starter. Had it replaced and solved the problem.
