#2 of 70 2002 Town and Country Check Engine Light
Aug 09, 2006 (5:16 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?

P1684 simply means that power was disconeected within the last 50 starts. (Most likely this is how the PCM was reset the last itme you took your van to the shop.)
P0135 indicates a malfuntioning O2 sensor. Available at your favorite parts store for about $75 bucks.
Hope this helps.

...and it is flashing indicating that "...serious conditions that could lead to immediate loss of power or severe catalytic converter damage..."
I can also smell burning gas and the whole engine (and the car) are shaking like Little Richard.
What's wrong and what to do?

I would say you should call your dealer immediately.

It's hard to diagnose over the internet. Take your car to the VW dealer or another service station. How many miles on your car?
#7 of 70 Check engine light stuck on (even with key out)
Oct 30, 2006 (3:01 pm)
Any idea what would cause a check engine light to always be on? I have a 1992 Town and Country with a digital gauge set. I just replaced the gauges because the old ones died, and with this replacement, the check engine light is always on, even when the key is out of the ignition and the van is off. I do not think the check engine light was on with the old gauges, but they died a while back, before I got this vehicle. The "maintenance required" light in the information center above the gauges is not on at all. I can not check the error codes, because the light stays on and can't blink the codes (if there are any). Thanks.

Problem solved. My replacement gauges had a short somewhere in the actual gauge portion. However, I was able to use the front gauge circuit board from my old gauge set and the rear circuit board from the replacement set (the part with the wire harness on it) to make a working gauge cluster, so I'm good to go.

I have a 04 Town and Country with 43,000 miles on it. In past months, prior to my warranty running out. The check engine light would come on. Chrys. said #2 was misfiring, so they replaced it for free. The warranty has since expired, and now it is doing the same thing. So, I took it to our local auto zone, for the free check and they said #3 was misfiring. I just tried doing the key turn 3 times, and it gives me a code of P030303. Is this the same thing as #3 misfiring.
