2000 Chrysler Town and Country 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 84000 miles
Two years ago, went to car, hit unlock with my fob and nothing happened. Unlocked car manually and tried to start it. When I try to start, the headlights come on, and car will turn over but not start. Headlight setting to off. No overhead lights when I open the door. Towed to dealer who let it set for three days. When they went to check out the problem, they found nothing and car worked fine. Last year in sub zero weather, same exact thing! Towed to electical mechanic, and after deciding the computer was ok, they 'reprogrammed" the computer at a pretty high charge. Tonight in teen degree weather, again the exact same thing happened. The battery was causing slow turnover last couple of days too so I'm sure that contributed along with the cold.
Question is, will a simple 'reboot' of the computer and a new battery make any difference or is this a known issue with this type of vehicle?
have the same problem?
