No, I'm not losing any fluid. It seems that it may be something internal in the master cylander. I just went out and the brakes seem to be pumping up better.
It's wierd cause I just got done changing brakes on a 1998 caravan and they are working great. this town and country is giving me fits.

Sounds like there is an internal leak in the master cyl....Let me know how that works out...and good luck.
#42 of 49 2001 Town and Country - Intermediate Electrical Issues
Apr 12, 2008 (8:34 am)
We have had the following issues with our Town and Country
1. When we turn on the vehicle the radio, wiper, power windows, and ac/heater do not turn on, but the van runs normal otherwise. Then if we turn it off and back on right away they work.
2. Sometime (more often then not lately) when all the above things are working while driving the radio (radio, CD, tape) will suddenly go to a buzzing noise and will not work again until the van has been off for a least an hour.
3. NOW- tonight my husband saw flashing lights outside our window. When he went out to check it out our light were flashing quickly on our radio was turning on and off. The fuse box was also ticking. The vehicle had been turned off for over an hour and there were not keys in it. We unplugged the battery for now.

#44 of 49 Background lights on center dashboard console
Dec 18, 2008 (10:34 am)
Has anyone had most of the background lights not working on the center dashboard console? The lights are to highlight night driving so you can see the various positions for heat and air conditioning. The lights show symbols for floor, vent, floor/vent, defrost. also the background lights for HomeLink Garage door opener and various other panel symbols. I am getting the Yellow LED lights which show which position the controls are in, but background lights are not lit except for the power doors, they seem to be the only ones lit.
Any help would be appreciated!

I found the answer to this somewhere on this forum.
All you have to do is disconnect the Negative battery cable for about 5-10 minutes and the Body Control Module Will reboot turning all the correct lights on and it may even correct some transmission shifting problems especially after a rebuild or replace of the tranny.

My 2001 T&C 3.8L makes a low rumble/roar between 2250-2400 rpm, right at cruising speed. It happens at that rpm, in any gear. It seems to be harmonics-related. Any clues/solutions? Thanks

I have a 2004 T&C with 155k miles. Two weeks ago when I was pulling in to get the oil changed my van stuttered then just cut off. Had to push it the rest of the way into the shop. After the oil was changed and filters were changed it seemed to run a little better but when I stopped at a light or stop sign had to keep foot on the gas and brake because it quit idling. Was told to give it a tune up and that would fix the problem. I did that and now not only is it not idling but also have a strong gas smell inside the van. Anyone have this problem, know how to fix this or any suggestions? Please help!!!!
#49 of 49 Key-In-Ignition Reminder goes off even with key out
Mar 31, 2013 (5:43 pm)
We just purchased a 2004 T-C. We are quite pleased with the way it runs and drives. We did have one issue this evening however.
When we open the driver's door the Key-in-ignition reminder sounds, even though the key is not in the ignition (and lights are off and the ignition is in the "lock" position.)
