SOURCE: replacing the alternator on a 2005 town & country

Its pretty much nuts and bolts. Remove the serpentine belt. Unplug the connector, remove the large battery cable and unbolt. The bottom bolts are easier to get at with the passenger front tire and splash shield removed.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

SOURCE: 2003 Chrysler Town & Country, put in new alternator, now have 2 lights on including battery and one looking like a pump. Radio won't work.

The reason the battery light is on is that the charging system voltage is below the battery voltage, this means the charging system is not working correctly, since you already replaced the Alternator for I assume the same problem, unless you got a defective rebuilt (which is poss if bought from Autozone or one of the other discount parts stores) the charging system problem is not the Alternator but lies elsewhere in the electrical system. Use a volt meter and check the voltage at the battery cables with the engine running at high idle (at least 1000 RPM) the voltage should be at least 13.4 to about 14.2 Volts DC. This is also most likely the cause of the light that is on that you say looks like a pump due to the low charging system voltage. As to the radio it is in theft lock, this happens anytime the battery is disconnected, you will need to enter the unique security code for your radio, if you are not the original owner this may be a problem, as the little card with the code and the instructions to enter it often gets misplaced. You will likely end up at the dealer who can access the Chrysler factory computer and retrieve the code, there may be a charge for this.

T&C's seem to have really bad electrical systems. Could be either the voltage regulator or the alternator, most likely the alternator. Most battery shops will diagnose for free.

Check connections to Alternator and Battery. If probably connected, have someone check the Alternator output. If still good, check fuse.

Voltage is down on our chrysler town and country if the alternator is not the problem is it in the computer.
