I have a Chrysler Town and country 1998. This is now happened five times but the Chrysler mechanics cannot seem to find the problem.
Once I would crank up the engine the car will go dead as if there is no battery. By cranking few times the instrument light would go wild and then dead. Then sometimes it will start. Last time this happened the car would keep making cut cut cut cut sound even when I took the keys out. After I disconnected the battery and put it back on - the cut cut cut sound stopped and car would start. The battery is new.
Twice the AC and circulation button would keep flashing and was reset by the dealership for $ 139 each time. Rip off.
Once I take the car to the Chrysler mechanic the car would start and they don't know what to fix. Here I am stuck in a parking lot with the car not cranking up and require towing.
The Chrysler mechanic told me next time it happens do not disconnect the battery as the information stored in the computer is lost. Once I took the car without disconnecting the battery and still they could not find the problem.
This is crazy. Can you please help?
