I have a 2005 Town and Country Touring. Both of the key fobs have stopped in the lock/unlock/door opening function. Both keys will open the doors manually and start the vehicle. Do I need to reprogram my key fobs?

Good evening. The issue your having is a software issue with the body control module. The correct repair is to have the BCM flashed with the newest version. In the mean time what you can do is disconnect both battery cables and hold them together for about 2 minutes and the reconnect. It's a temporary fix. The permanent fix is to have the BCM updated as I mentioned before

Good morning, at this point I am not offering phone call responses due to the fact that I am currently working at my employer and cant not make calls of that type. Is there any questions you have about the information given? Do you need additional help?

Good morning. I am a bit confused. My wife took our van last night and when she got back she asked what I had done. She said the fob was working fine. All I did was print out the reprogram instructions and the temporary fix note that you sent me. I checked the spare fob and it is working now also. I have no idea what happened.

What I have seen is that only the 2005 models have this issue. The other issue that happens about the same time is that the inside door lock switches stop working as well

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
