Chrysler Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome to just answer. This sounds more like a PCM (engine computer ) or a cam or crank sensor failure. Have you had the trouble codes checked recently?
Ok, well drive the car until it acts up again. Then get to the shop as soon as possible after it acts up. Ask the guys to check the trouble codes. If there is a code for the cam or crank sensor, then replace the appropriate sensor. If there are no codes, then suspect a faulty PCM and have it replaced. Figure around $250. To replace the sensors and $around $ 600.00 for the PCM. I hope that this information is helpful,
Well the locking/unlocking issues may be a security alarm problem, and if that is the case, the shop will need to connect to and communicate with the BCM (Body control Module). You may have more than one problem possibly. My recommendation is to leave the van with the shop for a few days so that when it does act up, the technician can monitor the BCM (alarm) and PCM (engine computer). Then this can be narrowed down quickly. You will need to be patient. Some intermittent problems take time to properly diagnose.
