Without a simple reproducible example (as the posting guide tells you) 
it's hard to say what went wrong for you.

ctree() can handle this situation appropriately, see
    vignette("party", package = "party")
for more details and worked examples.

CTree is similar in spirit to CHAID but not the same. However, there is 
the CHAID package on R-Forge (as pointed out previously, thanks to Max).

CTree is more flexible and can deal with more types of variables, e.g., it 
would be possible to use linear-by-linear type tests instead of plain 
Chi-squared tests for ordinal variables.
