I have a 99 Town and Country that is driving me crazy. When I put the key
in the ignition and turn the key, the wipers do 2 complete revolutions and
then stop. Lights on the dash all come on, all else seems to work fine. I
originally thought it may be the autostart but I turned it off, still does
the same. I tried jump starting it and it would crank over but immediately
would shut off. I even tried starting it in neutral, same results. Anybody
have any ideas?

Thanks for your reply,
I have checked the battery terminals, they are OK. No corrosion and tight.
When the charger is hooked up, the engine started normally but then shut off
seconds later. You can hear the fuel pump turning on so I am assuming it is
Welcome to the world of Daimler (chrysler is silent) electronics. The
issue is most lilkely gunk in the wiper control assembly, located on
fire wall in the wiper assembly cavity (drain assembly in front of
windshield). If you take the assembly off and take it apart and clean
the gunk out all should be normal (for a short period of time).
thanks for the reply but the problem is not with the wipers, it just happens
to cycle when I turn the key to start the van. The wiper switch is off, the
van doesn't even turn over to crank the engine. My problem is that the van
will not start, the wipers are the the confusing factor in this problem.
