You could possibly have a internal crack in the radiator, this is not un herd of because the transmission cooler is the side tank of the radiator, they are separated by a internal metal divider and its possible for the radiator to crack forcing antifreeze into the transmission cooler section of the radiator, because of the timing of this incident i would not stray from human error as a major possibility, but its not impossible for this to happen on its own and i have seen it before, its also possible they did not change the fluid in the flush machine from a previous job (that had water in the fluid) i would recheck the tranny fluid now and make sure its not watered down and overfilled, also be sure your coolant is not low, if these check out, then your shop owes you a brand new transmission and thats great because they aren't the best ones on the market and have a high failure rate anyway, best of luck to you and please rate this solution -Jeff

Break Down And Replace The Blower Motor


REMOVAL

WARNING: ON VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH AIRBAGS, DISABLE THE AIRBAG SYSTEM BEFORE ATTEMPTING ANY STEERING WHEEL, STEERING COLUMN, OR INSTRUMENT PANEL COMPONENT DIAGNOSIS OR SERVICE. DISCONNECT AND ISOLATE THE BATTERY NEGATIVE (GROUND) CABLE, THEN WAIT TWO MINUTES FOR THE AIRBAG SYSTEM CAPACITOR TO DISCHARGE BEFORE PERFORMING FURTHER DIAGNOSIS OR SERVICE. THIS IS THE ONLY SURE WAY TO DISABLE THE AIR-BAG SYSTEM. FAILURE TO TAKE THE PROPER PRECAUTIONS COULD RESULT IN AN ACCIDENTAL AIRBAG DEPLOYMENT AND POSSIBLE PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH OR DEATH.

NOTE: The blower motor is located on the passenger side of the vehicle under the instrument panel. The blower motor can be removed from the vehicle without having to remove the HVAC housing.

  1. Disconnect and isolate the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the passenger side cowl trim panel.
  3. Position the carpet to access the front upper screw that secures the air inlet housing.
  4. Remove the recirculation door actuator.
  5. Disconnect the blower motor wire lead connector from the blower motor resistor or power module, depending on application.
    1. Remove the one screw (from the top) that secures the lower air inlet housing to the upper air inlet housing.
    2. Remove the four screws (from the bottom) that secure the lower air inlet housing to the upper air inlet housing and remove the lower HVAC housing.
    3. Push the rubber grommet through the opening in the lower air inlet housing.
    4. Route the blower motor wire lead through the opening in the lower air inlet housing and remove the lower air inlet housing from the vehicle.
    5. Position the recirculation-air door as necessary to access and remove the three screws that secure the blower motor to the lower half of the HVAC housing.
    6. Gently flex the recirculation air door downward to gain access to remove the blower motor from the HVAC housing. NOTE: To aid in installation, note the position of the blower motor mounting tabs prior to removal
      1. Remove the blower motor from the HVAC housing by rotating and tilting the blower motor as necessary.
      INSTALLATION

      1. Gently flex the recirculation-air door downward to gain access to install the blower motor into the HVAC housing.
      2. Position the blower motor to the HVAC housing and tilt and rotate the blower motor as necessary to install it into the HVAC housing.
      3. Align the blower motor mounting tabs to the locations noted during removal and install the three screws that secure the blower motor to the HVAC housing. Tighten the screws to 2 N·m (17 in. lbs.).
      4. Route the blower motor wire lead through the opening in the lower air inlet housing and seat the rubber grommet.
      5. Position the recirculation door pivot shaft into the lower air inlet housing and install the inlet housing.
      6. Install the four screws (from the bottom) that secure the lower air inlet housing to the upper air inlet housing and the lower HVAC housing. Tighten the screws to 2 N·m (17 in. lbs.).
      7. Install the one screw (from the top) that secures the lower air inlet housing to the upper air inlet housing. Tighten the screw to 2 N·m (17 in. lbs.).

Hi Bernard:
The FLASHER is located under the driver dash it is a round fuse (it's located adjecent to the fuse block, and it's square, yellow in color).

Also, I suggtes to check for power at the junction box under the dash at terminals 1 and 6 with the combination flasher removed. Then check with a powered test lamp if test lamp lights pin 7 when signaling left and pin 8 when signaling to the right.

If the test results are correct, replace the Combination Flasher/DRL (Daytime Running Lights) module.

Gain access to the multifunction switch connector. Locate the Light Blue/Yellow wire and ground it. This should activate the right side turn signals. Locate the Light Blue/White wire and ground it. This should activate the left side turn signals. If both sides do work, the problem is in the multifunction switch. Verify the Black wire in the same connector is grounded at all times. If so, replace the multifunction switch.

Here is some reading on how the system works.

ELECTRONIC DAYTIME RUNNING LIGHT (DRL)
The Combination Flasher/DRL is a module providing turn signal, hazard warning, and daytime running light functions (for Canadian vehicles), and has been designed with internal relays to take advantage of low current switching requirements in the vehicle. It is plugged into the junction block at positions three and four, where all wiring associated with its operation is terminated. The junction block is adjacent to and left of the steering column of the vehicle.

On vehicles built for use in the United States, only position four is used. Vehicles built for use in Canada utilize both positions three and four.

To gain access to the device, remove the lower steering column cover and knee blocker.

The combination-flasher/DRL may be operated in its hazard warning mode either with or without the ignition circuit being active. However, in order to operate in the turn signal mode or the DRL mode, the ignition circuit must be completed to the module.

While the combination-flasher portion is idle, there is no current drawn through the module. The device does not become active in the turn signal or hazard warning modes until a signal ground circuit is supplied to either of the turn signal inputs or the hazard warning input. With the ignition OFF, there is no current drawn through the module.

While the ignition is ON, the front turn signal filaments are illuminated steadily thus providing the DRL function. The DRL function may be inhibited by applying a signal ground input from either the park brake circuit or the headlamp relay activation circuit.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I will appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Possible fuse or electrical problem 2000 Chrysler Town and Country LXI

The blower for the vent and air conditioning, the power outlet in the front (below the radio), the electric locks and the back up lights all suddenly stopped working at the same time. The electric windows, the radio, the inside lights, the taillights and headlights all work fine.
My husband replaced one fuse (under the hood by the battery). But cannot find any other fuse to replace or figure out what is wrong.

Can someone help?

2000 Chrysler Town and Country Antifreeze leak

The van keeps leaking antifreeze on the ground, on the passenger side of the vehicle. I can see that it is leaking down to the inside of the passenger side wheel well and then dripping to the ground from there.

It is not constant, some days we will have a good amount on the ground, other days very little to none at all. It doesn't appear to be leaking while the car is running, only when it's off.

I top off the reservoir about once every two weeks or so with a 50/50 antifreeze water mix. The radiator itself never seems to be low. It doesn't appear the leak is coming from the reservoir, as I see no coolant or water around the underside of it. The water pump was replaced about a year ago on the vehicle, I can't imagine it going out again.

I simply can't find the source of this leak. Any suggestions?

I would replace the Thermostat and see if that will not Stop this. It is Coming from the Overflow Tank. It is getting a Little Warm during Driving and the Extra Coolant that will Build up Preassure needs somewhere to go So, It sends it to the Overflow Reservoir and it Seeps out the Overflow Outlet. This is Pretty Common though and Really not that Big of a Deal as long as you do not loose too Much. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

2000 Chrysler Town & Country Power outlet fuse (which one?)

Power outlet (cigarette lighter) not working, cannot identify which fuse goes to it. All the clear 10/15/20A fuses are not blown, other fuses are not labeled. No fusebox diagram in the owners manual.

Where can I find a layout of the non-labeled fuses (the black boxes and the yellow box fuses that you cannot visually inspect to see if they are blown)?

The fuse and relay positions are cast into the under side of the 'power center' (fuse box) cover. The larger boxes are relays of various power (not related to your problem). Check the wire at the rear of the power outlet to see if it is connected. Sometimes a fuse will open due to an element crack, but not be blown. Try another when you find the correct one.
