Regarding the dash lights:
Regarding your dashboard lights, if your van is the same as my parent's 1996 Dodge Grand Caravan, then there is a dimmer switch that is the same switch for the interior lighting. If it is turned to the left, the interior lights go out and the dash dims. If you spin it 3/4 to the right, the dash gets brighter, and all the way turns on your interior lights. It is located at the bottom left side of the steering wheel.

Thanks for your suggestion, but our T & C does not have a security system. The chryler dealer updated some computer modules a week ago, and so far so good. The key fob seems to be a trigger, but we don't know why.

Did you ever figure out the cause of your problem? I just bought my 05 caravan 2 months ago and it's doing exactly the same thing. Brought it to the dealership and they couldn't duplicate the problem. I feel helpless.

I changed the BCM on my '02 chrysler town and country with no luck. I have replaced the computer and traced the wires, and checked fuses and relays. I am at a loss.

I had the same problem. I unplugged the 6DVD changer that was connected to the radio, have not had a problem since.

#632 of 659 I want to a class action lawsuit against chrysler
Aug 22, 2012 (9:44 am)
was in an accident do to the fob key. I bought my 2010 town & country the first of May in 2011. It shut off on me at least three times before we were in the accident. The first few times it happened I thought it was me, that I must of not turned it on all the way or something. Then I recieved the notice in the mail at the end of August and immetiatly called to schedule the appointment to have it fixed. I did what the notice said and made sure to take any lose keys off and make sure it is in the on postion. My children and I were making a left hand turn at a light, just got off the freeway) and as I presided to go it shut down and we went onto the medium. Took out the whole front end. my children were brused and sore from this and it really iritated my existing pain conditions. I have had it in repeatedly cuz it still is not fixed right. The key fob fix they did causes the turn signals, radio, blinkers, all the electrical not work. It broke my key and they had to replace it. It makes this banging clunking sound and it is loud. The faster I go the more it is all over the road, the transmission stalls, is shifting out of range, the tires are wearing bald fast and they were replaced cuz of the accident. It feels like the whole bottom is going to come right out from under us. The dealership the first time I had to take it back in, at least I think it was the first time I took it back in?? Had to replace the struts, do an aliment and had to reset the transmission cvi and adaptives and they have had to reset them every time now I've took it back in. I am taking it in to another shop other then the dealership. I need a second opion. They have to be incompetent cuz you can clearly hear there is something wrong with it still. I am having nightmares of having an accident on the freeway and my children being mutalated by passing cars. I am seeing a physicatrist because of this and em on atavan to help with the axiety, sleeplessness and stress from driving this van. We all need to get together and start a class action lawsuit unless there is already one going then I need information to join. I want out from under this crappy van. None of us should have to be stuck with these vehicles and I for one em tired of paying for it.
We need to all come together and make this real. We need to start a class action lawsuit.
