#11 of 49 2002 Chrysler Town and Country - Trouble Codes
Aug 04, 2006 (7:02 am)
I have the infamous check engine light that just came on my car. It appeared 6 months ago, changed the gas cap and was charged $120 for the cap and diagnostic check.
Just recently, the check engine light came on again. I did a trick to do the diagnostic check myself. turning the key on and off a few times will show you the codes on the odometer. When I did this, the following codes displayed: "P1684 and P0135". Does anyone know these codes and how to fix?
#12 of 49 2004 T & C Check Engine Light

Wondering if someone can advise re Check Engine light going on for a 2004 T & C. We've had is service 2 times already since purchased for the same indications. First time the #3 plug was replaced. Second, all six plug wires and plugs were replace with reprogramming. Now, same indications again. I suspect one of the plugs is faulty again, but, what is the underlying problem? Now that warranty is expired, the diagnostic test is $100 just to find out. Can anyone suggest a resolution or cheaper fix?
#13 of 49 Broken speedometer
Aug 11, 2006 (6:06 pm)
The other day I was resetting my trip odometer and suddenly the instrument panel lit up like a Christmas tree and the speedometer needle went all the way past 120mph and remained stuck on the wrong side of the pin. We were getting ready to leave for vacation and had to drive the whole trip without knowing how fast we were going. Needless to say, this added
more stress to our trip. Has anybody got any suggestions on how to fix this without going to the dealer?

#18 of 49 Links and Bushings problem at 40K miles? Advice?
Nov 29, 2006 (4:51 pm)
We have a 2003 Town and Country that has 40K miles on it. Over the past couple of weeks there has been a rattle by the front left wheel. We took the car in today for an oil change at the dealer and they diagnosed the problem. The problem they diagnosed was "links and bushings." They are claiming they need to be replaced and the total is around 320 dollars. I have never heard of that. The car is still under warranty. Seems like an excessive cost. Any advice on what to do would be greatly appreciated.

We had the same problem with our 2003 and my local garage fixed it for $195. This was at 42k miles.
This was the only non-maintenance issue we have had.

Links and Bushings have NEVER been replaced on my daughter's 1999 GC SE that has 95,000 miles on it...nor have they been replaced yet on another daughter's 2002 T&C LX that has 44,000 miles on it.
However, each was purchased NEW by a private party and were never fleet or rental units.
