What causes a squeaky alternator and how can you fix the problem on a 96 Chrysler town and country?

A squeaky alternator is sometimes a sign that the fan belt or something associated with it is squeaking, not the alternator. (Possibly the belt or belt tensioner) So first I'd make sure it's actually the alternator squeaking before I proceeded. You could try some belt dressing on the belt and see if that helps or changes the squeak. If however it is the alternator, that's usually a sign the bearing's gone out and you will need to replace the alternator.

Can bar soap quiet a squeaky belt?

There are many home remedies to quiet a squeaky alternator or power steering belt. But a squeaking belt is usually a sign that should not be ignored. It generally means that... a. The belt is loose & should be tightened b. The belt has aged and hardened and should be replaced or c. Something has gone wrong in the alternator / power steering / whatever and is putting more drag into the system than normal... and should be replaced. So rather than putting soap on the belt (which will make it slip even more in moist weather), i recommend tightening or replacing it & keeping an eye on whatever is being powered by it.
