Fix + Fast
by Pete Jackson. Also see the main minivan repairs section.
This covers a 1994 Chrysler Town & Country with the 3.8 V6 engine, but the process is probably fairly similar across numerous model years and V6 engines.
The original (193,000+ miles) alternator finally stopped working, in the middle of the night, when it was dark and rainy (go figure), at least we weren't far from home... I had been getting a code 41 (alternator feild fails to switch) but today I got no code, and no charging voltage with the meter.
[Editor’s note: this is probably not appropriate for the rank beginner, but may be good for the moderately experienced amateur.]
