Hello and welcome to just answer. 75 milliamps is an acceptable for an ignition off draw on a Town & Country. There are so many controllers, computers, and modules on that van and some of them take several minutes (up to 30 minutes) to "go to sleep" or power down after the ignition is turned off. If you watch the ammeter the draw will slowly go down. If it is staying at 75 milliamps, then you should be ok. If it goes back up, then something is causing a controller to "wake up". If that is the case, then you may be able to isolate which controller it is by pulling fuses one at a time, or locating the controllers and disconnecting them. In some cases this can be pretty time consuming and patience is required. But if it staying at 75, then don't worry about it.
I hope this helps,
If it drains in 2 to 3 days, then the draw must be going back up at times. The 140 amp alternator is fine. Installing a 160 amp will not fix this. You will need to watch the ammeter and start pulling fuses. If you can get the draw to come down by a fair amount when you pull a particular fuse, then tell me what fuse it is and I can look up and see which controllers are fed by that fuse.
Ok, there is only the one fuse box under the hood. None inside of the van. Good luck! I hope this helps,
Hello, just checking back to see how it is going with the draw issue. Let me know if you need further assistance.
Ok no problem. Just wanted to see how it was going. Try disconnecting the hood switch and see if that helps.
Any luck yet?
Hmmm, is it a control module or harness problem?
Please find out if you can and let me know what they say.
