1998 Chrysler Town & Country Instrument Cluster Test Sequence
Don't pay over $100 for a mechanic to tell you what check engine means.
Press and hold the trip and reset button, turn key until you hear the
beeping (run position), continue to hold the buttons for 5 seconds and
"code" will appear on the odometer. Let go and watch the light show. Note
any diagnostic codes. Once it's done, remove the key.
Some autoparts stores (like mine - AdvancedAuto) allow u to borrow their
car diagnostic computer (ODB2 OBDII) that can read codes and reset them
free. Also a shout-out to http://forum.chryslerminivan.net/ that site has
lots of useful info on T&C's and other chrysler minivans.

INFORMATIONAL purposes ONLY. This fix is for off-road use. The content

I enjoy the process of testing theory because you always learn something
new, regardless of the outcome.
Using a spark plug defouler kit, I install a "buffer" in between the
downstream oxygen sensor and the catalytic converter. Quite often,
frustrated car owners get the P0420 code for reasons other than a bad cat.
I have heard of people getting the code just because they removed the
converter and reinstalled it. It can also happen if you run your vehicle
out of gas etc... etc...
It is also common for car owners to get the P0420 code, replace the
converter, and both o2 sensors-- only to have the code come back after 1000
miles or so. This can be a very frustrating, time consuming and of
course-- expensive venture. Here is one way to resolve the issue. Good
luck and have fun!
