the instrument cluster will go dead as you are driving the vehicle.non of the instrumentation will work not the fuel, tach, spedo, odometer or anything.just as quickly as it turned itself off, it will turn itself back on and all of the instrumentation will work.other problem,once started it will immediately shut itself off.after a few attempts it will turn itself off and then it will not start or do anything.if you let the vehicle sit overnight, usually the next day, it will start again like nothing ever happened.it does this frequently, but completely sporadically.it has happened to me approximately 9-12 times since i purchased the vehicle in may of 2003.the previous owner had it in the shop, (i have the work orders) for the exact same problems at least 2-3 times while it was under warranty and each time they told him that the problem was solved.the car was sold to me and within the month the warranty expired.i took it to the same dealership and they couldn't diagnose the problem but still charged me for a diagnosis fee.they tell me it is an intermittent problem and that i have to be able to duplicate the problem.when i have it towed to them they can't diagnose it and want me to pay for the repair even when i have a history to show that the problem was never repaired to begin with.i have seen many statements and questions about these exact same problems others are having with their chrysler minivans posted to various internet web sites. how can i get this resolved so that the car drives without endangering myself or my family.i have emailed chrysler directly on numberous occasions.i bought the car with 48,000 miles and it currently has 54,000 miles.i can't sell it because i wouldn't want to pass these problems on to someone else.also, i can't trade it because the owner of the chrysler dealership in my area,al berger of sarasota chrysler has told me himself that he couldn't give me what it's worth because he knows it has these problems. *ak

my 2001 chrysler town and country has starting problems dec of 2006. will not start and run for few seconds. after trying 3 times everything goes dead. would jiggle key, beat on dash, turn key on/off. still not sure of correct sequence to get it started again. i have taken it in for a fix of problem - $500 worth in fargo, nd jan 11, 2007. they said fixed problem. one week latter back to the same problem. the part they replaced wasn't the problem. i talked to a auto body man and said has heard of numerous people going into the ada, mn dealer for repair and would happen again so they would check it out but would remedy it by disabling the security system. they kept the $500. hmmm sounds like a rip off to me. *jb
