SOURCE: Van won't start. Just makes a clikcing noise. Horn sounds weak.

THIS IS CAUSED BY A DEFECTIVE STARTER MOTOR SOLENOID, REMOVE AND REPLACE THE STARTER OR JUST REPLACE THE SOLENOID ON TOP OF THE STARTER IF YOU CAN BUY IT SEPERATE.

SOURCE: 2005 Town & Country Van dead battery after short trips

Possible dead cell in battery, most likely a fault in the charging system. First, Jump Vehicle to get started then remove the Negative cable. If the vehicle dies when you take the jumper cables away or when you disconnect the negative cable your alternator or charging system is faulty. If the vehicle runs without battery connected you have a bad cell in your battery, replace the battery.

SOURCE: I was driving my 2000 Chrysler Town and Country

Sounds like it may be your battery cable, which lead from your battery to starter, or it could be the main fuse box overheated, caught small fire, that is located under the hood. I'm thinking more on the battery cable, since it gives power to your fuse box, reason I say this is, If there was nothing wrong with the battery area cables or main fuse box, then you would still have power, since the battery supplies the power.

Van turned off while driving without warning


There is a dead short somewhere linked to that fuse, problem won't be solved until you find what is shorting out that fuse. Atleast that is the first thing to figure out.

I did some digging around if you do a google search on the problem, with the van model year and 20 amp engine fuse you will find all kinds of articles.

Biggest issue I seen pop up was the wire to o2 sensor, shorting out, also that fuse may also connect to the fuel pump and and related circuit. Hopefully that helps point you in the right direction

Key stuck in ignition of 2009 chrysler town and country


Try to start it in neutral. If it starts then it sounds like a neutral safety switch. If the battery is dead it may not let the key out unless you jump the van.
