#38 of 47 Re: Starting issue [pixiez3]
Feb 19, 2010 (11:17 am)
It has yet to stall. So far, the only manifestation is the failure to start. If I turn the key to "on" and hear the fuel pump activate (the fuel pump is one of the items controlled under the ASD circuit), I know it is going to start and work fine. I tried starting the van again last night, but no dice. It was only having this problem for about two weeks before it became so unreliable that my wife asked me to purchase a new car and we ceased to use it. I was able to start it a few times after that, but then went a solid month where it failed to start every time I tried it. Once winter set in toward the end of September, I parked it and did not try again until Wednesday night (when it started right up!).
I also have the circuit board issue, but that silly thing works less than it doesn't any more, so I really doubt it has anything to do with it directly. In fact, the board was not working Wednesday when the van did work, but came on after it was running for about 20 minutes. Both times I tried starting it yesterday, the gauges were working.

The guages and center console buttons do not work (except the tac). Replacing fuses has not worked. I am told I need a new circuit board, but new ones are not available. Where can I locate one?
#40 of 47 Interior light problem
Jul 02, 2010 (9:31 pm)
While driving, my interior lights flash, all doors lock continually, "door ajar" goes on and off as well as constant chimes. The only time it seems to stop is when I am traveling between 85 to 95 km/h. Any help to stop this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Dan

I have the same exact problem. The center console doesn't show temp or compass heading. Now the map lights are both out. Did you ever get this fixed?

HI. I know this is a long shot, but did you ever figure out what was the issue with your van? Mine is doing the SAME EXACT THING. The check engine light comes on and off and reads "cylinder misfire 1". Ive replaced coil pack, plugs and wires and its still does it...especially after getting gas. Its the weirdest thing. Thanks for any help you can give me!

You have a weak fuel injector in cylinder #1.

58 pounds. The pressure regulator is part of the in-the-tank fuel pump assembly. Replace the pump ($170.00) and you replace the regulator.

#47 of 47 96 Town and Country overheating
Sep 25, 2012 (12:26 pm)
I have a 96 Town and Country minivan with a 3.3L engine that keeps overheating. I have replaced the water pump, the fan relay, the thermostat and I have flushed the radiator with flushing solution bought at an auto parts store. After driving for about twenty minutes it starts to overheat, turning the heat on high will keep it from overheating for awhile but not forever. If I run the a/c it over heats much faster. It also overheats much faster when I'm driving slow or idling at a stop light. It does not have a coolant leak and the fans are working fine. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
Oh and I've replaced the belt and the belt tensioner, so I know I belt is not slipping.
