Question: The Chrysler Town and Country van has the electric door package.The front doors work just fine.
The rear doors will not open or unlock when the button on the remote is pushed. I checked the battery, not the issue. When I wanted to open the rear doors prior I would hit the respective door button on the remote and the door would open. Now, the door lock buttons will not pop up and the doors will not open.
I replaced my front drive shaft again and took it for test drive and it snapped again. Started looking and the front differential has moved back. Looks like there is a piece that had been cut off before that holds the differential in place? Any ideas and what it would be called??Read more...
