Had the starter replaced in my 2006 town and country and when I got the vehicle back from the garage several of the major power options did not work. Power locks, inside lights, dash board lights, control to heat and cool etc. any ideas?

Take it back to the garage that changed the starter and have them fix what they did. they most likely did not hook up some wires

Thanks John, I did take it back and they kept it for two days and called me and told me they could not find what the problem was. I am a bit fearful to take it there again.

Sorry to hear that How reputable is the shop that changed the starter? There is a few (fusible links) coming from the starter that supply various powered items like what you lost. If they did not disconnect the battery before they unhooked the wiring to the starter one or more could have blown. a fusible link is a wire that is between the power source (being the large red wire on the starter) and the wiring to the fuse box that supplies accessories on the car. To test the fusible links just unhook the positive side of the battery and locate the wires on the starter that are on the same connection post as the large red wire coming from the battery pull on them one at a time. If the insolated coating stretches on any of them the fusible link is blown and needs to be repaired or replaced.
