Chrysler Repair: 97 3.5 Won't start
My conjecture about the spark issue was that the cam and crank sensors were out of synch due to a timing belt mal-alignment such that the spark would not be driven to 4 of the 6 cylinders. I am at a loss to suggest anything further so would have to leave...

Chrysler Repair: 97 3.5 Won't start. No spark on 1 and 4 Cyl.
Hi Mike, It appears that the pcm pin assignments for the coil driver wires were changed in the 97 model (and possibly the 96 as well). Does the pcm have 2 40-pin plugs or 1 60-pin plug? But if you show continuity for the 1/4 coil wire but get no spark...

Chrysler Repair: '97 3.5L Won't Start
Hi Mike, I wonder whether the timing belt has slipped (at the left sprocket) such that the left bank valves are out of synch with the crank but the right side are not. That left side is also the side which the cam sensor is detecting so that would put the...

Chrysler Repair: '97 3.5L Won't Start
Hi Mike, Thanks for confirming that the pcm plugs had changed for the 97. You might also want to check that the cranksensor output is similarly oscillating: 4 times quickly in a row, three times, in single rotation of the crankshaft. I can t think of any...

Chrysler Repair: 99 LHS-COOLING FANS & TRASMISSION
Hi Paul, There are two relays that operate the fans, located in the power box in the engine compartment. In the box check out fuse B and fuse E. The power to close the relays comes from the ignition switch via fuse 21 in the box behind the left end cap of...

Chrysler Repair: AC evaporator drain tube
Hi Russell, The manual doesn t show where the drain tube is located. But usually it s outlet is on the underside of the vehicle, midline (directly under the HVAC unit) and is simply a rubber hose projected through the floor board. When you find it simply...

Chrysler Repair: Brake/ABS lights 'on', '91 Imperial
No, as I said earlier if there is indeed no code then I would not replace any major parts in the hopes that solves the warning light issue. Only a code should be in hand before replacing expensive parts. I mentioned a slight in-balance between the two branches...

Chrysler Repair: cam timing '04 2.7 intrepid
Hi Jesse, I can copy the pages that show how to install the timing belt correctly from the 04 manual that I have on a CD and attach them to an email I will send to you directly. Let me know your email address but when you do so don t use the @ symbol, instead...

Chrysler Repair: Catalytic converter plugging up?
Hi Al, The egr not being used simply means that can t be the cause of missing at idle or when accelerating, if that is the problem. So unless you have a code for missing then either it is too subtle for the pcm to notice it or isn t missing. So waiting...

Chrysler Repair: Code 41 & ammeter shows discharge: '94 3.0L
The powertrain controller is mounted on left side inner fender at the upper edge and has the large 60-pin plug. Check the continuity between pin 20 and the other end of the green wire at the alternator. Then start the engine and observe for 12v to be present...

Chrysler Repair: Chrysler 300m no bus
yep i read it your quote Gauges don t work. No Bus message. AC / Heating is pumping air like hell Now read what I said a no bus is a loss of commutation on the network that all the computers talk to each other. What don t u understand or what...

Chrysler Repair: chrysler 300m: no start
Hi Brian, To get a start on this no start use you ignition key: turn it on-off-on-off-on and leave on doing that in 5 seconds or less elapsed time. Then watch the odometer window to see the mileage reading replaced by a 4-digit number preceded by a P....

Chrysler Repair: Chrysler Mini-Van
1698 Loss of commutation with trans computer 500 no tans speed signal 1491 is radiator fan relay circuit ECM no TCM maybe I would first put a set of speed sensors in though 25 bucks each or check the wires going to the speed sensors because...

Chrysler Repair: Codes 0107, 0471
Hi Frauke, I would think that is has to do with the voltage supply to those two sensors as they both share the same 5v supply wire and I don t believe there are other sensors that use that (other than for the air conditioning pressure sensor). I surmise the...

Chrysler Repair: Dead Short
I answered your question on Monday, and again on Tuesday. Check your in-box or look at the home page of Chrysler repair to see my answer there. Here it is again: Hi Chris, That fuse 12 is the ignition off draw fuse which powers everything needed when...

Chrysler Repair: Eclipse won't start
Hi Terry, I don t have manuals for the Eclipse, but if the 3.0L engine is a Mitsubishi that was used by Chrysler for a number of years, then because you don t have any fault codes I would not replace any sensors. Instead look for small diameter pipe that...

Chrysler Repair: upstream oxyger sensor wiring: '05 T&C V-6
Here are the O2 upstream sensor connections from the plug of the sensor: pin 1 black/light green goes to chassis ground pin 2 brown/light green goes to pin 18 of the pcm and is the voltage supply for the heater pin 3 brown/dark green goes to pin 32 of the...

Chrysler Repair: Fuel injectors on a 1994 Chrysler LHS 142000 miles
Hi Mar, The injectors each have 2 o-ring seals. There is no need to change anything about the computer if you change the seals or the injectors. I do wonder whether the pressure in the system may be too high due to either a loose vacuum line connection...

Chrysler Repair: Headlight not going 'off', Pacifica
Hi Trudy, I assume that you have turned off the ignition switch before you turn off the auto headlamp choice, otherwise the headlamps will remain on if the exterior ambient light level is low. If the ignition is off and the headlamps don t shut off, then...

Chrysler Repair: Heat cooler one side: jeep cherokee
Hi Mike, The controls are similar but not identical. But here is the instruction from the 06 manual which you can try to see if there could be fault code stored: Turn on the ignition switch. Turn the blower knob to the on position Press and hold the a/c...

Chrysler Repair: Ignition Off Draw fuse: '05 Diesel mininvan
You are welcome. 0.16 amp is not much current by the way, at least to think it could pull down the battery voltage in 2-3 days. Maybe the battery is reaching the marginal point, or the IOD is variable and you didn t see it in the worst condition. But it should...

Chrysler Repair: P0128/ P2181 Temp Gauge Prob.
The ect has a resistance of around 4,000 ohms when cold, and as it heats up its resistance drops below 1,000 ohms. I doubt it would do damage to do a jump with a wire, but better would be to buy a resistor of around 1,000 ohms at an electronics store and jump...

Chrysler Repair: Pacifica won't start
Hi Ryan, There are two items that click when you try the start position: first there is a soft click from the starter motor relay in the power box under the hood (possible not noticeable) and then there is a loud click from the solenoid switch on the starter...

Chrysler Repair: po736 and po500
Hi Cindy, The 0500 certainly suggests the output speed sensor or its wiring is faulty. The 0736 code is about a discrepancy between the ratio of input and output speed sensors in reverse gear, but that of course would be true if the output sensor was not...

Chrysler Repair: Shifter Cable
Hi Paul, I have the 04 manual on a CD from which I can copy pages and attach them to an email I would send to you directly. Let me know your email address but don t use the @ symbol, instead use at , or the address will be erased. The pages show the complete...

Chrysler Repair: speed control fault code 1596
Hi Al, Try removing the spark plug caps one at a time to see if one of them does not impact the idle. Then measure the compression on that cylinder to see if there might be low compression situation there. Otherwise, keep checking for fault codes until...

Chrysler Repair: Will not start: '90 Imperial
Hi Robert, It is necessary to get a fault code to solve this no start without spending money for unnecessary parts. You could try replacing the check engine bulb in the cluster by borrowing one of the working bulbs that you described. But let is also...

Chrysler Repair: no start issue: '00 Neon
Hi Matt, And you did check fuse 21, correct? And you still get the 1388 and 1389 codes? and you are getting 12v to pin 16 of the data link connector? I guess I would check out the voltage on the throttle position sensor signal wire (orange/dark blue on pin...

Chrysler Repair: Starting in high idle after tank fill: '05 minivan
Hi Rick, You are aware that the minivans in the 05 or so era have a problem with the fuel tank vapor collection/recycling system that is well-documented but which Chrysler won t recall. I suspect that raw fuel has collected in that system and that is why...

Chrysler Repair: 02 pt cruiser intermittent starer motor
The battery voltage seems to be a bit low at 11.8, and also how old is the battery, might it be near the end of its warranty. The voltage on the system with the engine running should be at around 14. The battery should ideally be at around 12.4v when charged...

Chrysler Repair: '06 T & C power doors
Hi Bob, I am not personally familiar with the power door opening/closing actuation choices. However I see that there is a provision to inhibit the opening/closing of the sliding doors by a child presumably sitting in the rear of the van. Might it be that...

Chrysler Repair: '07 Sebring: starting issue with hot engine
I probably misspoke about the location as I have the figure to go by but it is not exactly clear as to its relation to the thermostat housing. What the figure shows is that if you are positioned directly in front of the coolant pressure cap (not the cap on...

Chrysler Repair: 1999 Chrysler 300m: intake manifold hoses
Hi Benjy, I assume this is a 3.2 or 3.5L engine. The vacuum lines that are connected to the intake manifold are for the secondary runner valve, the speed control reservoir, and the pcv valve. There should be diagram on the underside of the hood that shows...

Chrysler Repair: 2000 300m will turn over but won't start
Hi Joe, A no start with no codes means that it has to be either fuel supply, spark, compression, or mixture. On the fuel issue: do you hear the fuel pump run for about 1 second when you turn the key to the run position, which would be the normal behavior....

Chrysler Repair: 2000 Intrepid: cluster digital readings unsteady
Hi Tim, Sorry about that misnaming of the wire colors, which should have been yellow/violet. That wire shows up on many pins of the bcm plugs because those are all the digital data wires that are needed at many different modules and are transmitted on those...

Chrysler Repair: 2000 Intrepid: cluster digital readings unsteady
Hi Tim, Thanks for all that data. I don t understand what is the meaning of fuse grd and fuse power . In any case, the pin #6 readings to ground should be re-measured with the meter set to the lowest full scale ohm reading as we are looking for poor connections...

Chrysler Repair: 2000 Intrepid, Random Door Locks-Odometer Flashing-No A/C cooling-No engine cooling fans
Hi Tim, We can only deal with what doesn t work currently. The AC compressor clutch will only be activated if the system has sufficient refrigerant in the system, so I would suggest that you verify that is the case by adding some to the system to see whether...

Chrysler Repair: 3.0L coolant inlet tube replacement
Hi Brian, I believe that the inlet tube (water pipe) can be removed without taking off the top of the engine. There is a small by-pass outlet at the very front end of the pipe from which you will want to disconnect the hose. But otherwise if you remove the...

Chrysler Repair: '90 Imperial: won't start
Then we have to get the check engine light to work. Verify that fuse #8 under the dash is working using a voltmeter. Then if that is, verify that there is 12v on pin D of the right circuit board plug at the cluster (dark blue trace wire). If that checks out,...

Chrysler Repair: '92 LeBaron: Headlight won't turn off
Hi John, I will go get copies, ideally tomorrow morning and get them in the mail to you before the rain begins here in No. California. Thanks for the rating. By the way, you can also give me another nomination for volunteer of the month is you choose to...

Chrysler Repair: '94 Sebring:2.5L engine flooded, why?
Hi Fred, Sorry for the misunderstanding...I didn t realize that the Sebring had a 94 model and thus the 2.5L V-6, I was thinking about the 2.5L 4 cyl. in use in other models that year. With no stored fault codes and a one-time occurrence I would not think...

Chrysler Repair: '96 LH-body theft alarm won't disarm
Hi Amber, No, I mean the vertical panel that is in front of the door opening, it is called the kick panel. You will find there to be a module hidden under the cloth covering of that penal. Here are the details to finding the bcm: remove the right end cover...

Chrysler Repair: '96 LHS no start
If you mean that the alarm is not cancelling when you have unlocked the driver s door (and as the result the engine does start but then it dies after a couple of seconds) then a fault code is probably not needed. You have to get the alarm to be cancelled....

Chrysler Repair: '96 Sebring no start
Hi Jimmy, The pcm if failed still will give a code for that so I would not opt for that route yet. It sounds to me that the issue is fuel/air mixture related which is principally controlled by the cts, which you indicate you have replaced and checked its...

Chrysler Repair: '98 concorde lxi 3.2: no start
Hi Christopher, Take advantage of the on-board self-diagnostic feature by using the ignition key: on-off-on-off-on and leave on doing that in 5 seconds or less elapsed time. Then watch the odometer of the cluster to see the mileage reading disappear and...

Chrysler Repair: '98 Grand Voyager: no heat on driver side
Hi Scorpio, The heater unit is complex: some of the parts can be serviced without removing the unit from the dash and some cannot. It also has a self-diagnostic capability which may identify exactly why there is no heat coming from the driver side vents (Is...

Chrysler Repair: 99 Chrysler 300 m, Engine performance
Hi Essam, I would check out the wiring of the left bank downstream sensor s harness. Pin 1 is black wire and that should be grounded, pin 2 is orange/dark green and that whould have 12V on it from the power distribution center when the ASD is closed (engine...

Chrysler Repair: '99 Voyager won't start or turn over
Hi John, Your noticing that the engine would start and run with the code reader plugged in was very useful information and now you have confirmed what I suspected, the black/white wire on pin 5 is NOT connected to the battery - post clamp by a thin solid...

Chrysler Repair: Auto transmission fault codes: '95 minivan
Hi Larry, Throwing parts at a transmission situation is the wrong approach. The best way to diagnose the problem is to use the on-board fault code system to get a two-digit fault code number that would give a cause for the problem. You do that by means of...

Chrysler Repair: Chrysler 300m '02: ATC blower/code 26
Hi Geo, If what happens is that the blower is always running and you can t turn it off or change the speed then that means the blower motor power module has failed. It is located on the underside of the HVAX unit, just to the left of the blower motor housing...

Chrysler Repair: chrysler neon 1996 fuel pump
Hi Tony, The 95 and 97 manuals that I have show the pressure regulator to be built-in to the pump but it is replaceable. The operating pressure is around 48 +/-1 psi which is based upon the regulator control not the pump deadhead pressure which is said...

Chrysler Repair: '00 Neon; automatic shifting problems
Hi Emily, There are several possible causes for what you describe that are fairly easy to adjust or replace. The front band adjustment would be easy for a mechanic to try to see if that improves things. The other would be, it indeed there is a problem with...

Chrysler Repair: Chrysler town and country electrical problem
Hi Josh, Fuse 6 will only show voltage when the key is in the run position. Fuses 1 and 3 will show voltage only when the headlamp switch is turned on because that voltage comes from the park lamp relay. Please consider doing a rating and nomination...

Chrysler Repair: fuse relay box and harness replacement
What are u talking about? My signature that is attached to every answer I send mmm kinda look past that and first answer the question I asked then U can go from there. I am a tech not a part department I dont know what all the 10,000 or more...

Chrysler Repair: heater fan on 2003 caravan
Hi Merv, I assume this is a conventional HVAC controller unit (not automatic temp control). The symptom you describe is associated with the blower motor resistor block having gone bad. You can replace it yourself, easily. It is located behind the glove...

Chrysler Repair: PT Cruiser control
Hi Tom, Several questions: what is the year model? what do you mean by the left side control ? What does it control ? By went Off , what was working at the time it went off, and does nothing ...

Chrysler Repair: Will not start: '90 Imperial.
Hi Robert, I gave you directions for the finding the ASD (autoshutdown) relay, not the ASD fuse. That relay is located in the right rear corner of the power box under the hood. Do you have a voltmeter or 12v glow light to check for voltage at the socket...

Chrysler Repair: '95 transmission fault codes
Hi Larry, The best you can do is check with independent repair shops to see what they charge to do a OBD-I code readout from that blue plug as that is the only way to get the codes. You might also try transmission repair shops to see what they would charge,...

Chrysler Repair: '00 Cirrus Heater/AC: air distribution won't change
Hi Shaun, Sorry for the delay in responding but I just found your question in the pool to which it had been referred by Kevin. It is possible that the mode door motor, which operates the doors inside the unit, it out of calibration. To test that possibility,...

Chrysler Repair: '02 3.0L: codes 0171, 0335, 0340
Hi Eddie, Thanks for the progress report. I am pleased that the O2 sensor replacement cured the 0171. I hope that a different distributor will solve the 0335 and O340, but do verify that the 5V supply that powers up the two sensors is solid at 5V as well....

Chrysler Repair: '03 Chrysler Voyager 3.3 Cooling Fans
Hi David, The radiator fans are powered by fuse 27, 40 amp via the fan relay which is controlled by the pcm which is looking at the coolant temp sensor to decide when to power the fans. Check the fan relay also which is located behind the grille on the top...

Chrysler Repair: '05 3.8L code P0403
Hi Frank, The 0403 code is about the egr solenoid when asked to function not moving to the position to which it was requested. Generally (and because you already replaced the egr) this is due to a problem in the wiring of the solenoid to the other ends of...

Chrysler Repair: '07 GrandCherokee: dash lights flashing
Hi Carol, By interior lights on dash do you mean simply the illumination lighting of the instrument cluster, or do you mean those along with other dash devices illumination lights (e.g. the heater control panel, radio panel, etc.) as well OR do you mean...

Chrysler Repair: '09 sebring instrument cluster lights faulty
Hi Tim, My manuals are only up to 2006, but the wire colors are usually consistent over the years. The illumination voltage/current carrying wire is usually orange in color and in 06 came in on pin 12. So remove the cluster and check if that same orange...

Chrysler Repair: 1999 Chrysler LHS backup problem
Hi Chuck, The reverse position of the transmission connects fuse 17 to the reverse warning lights at the rear and to the automatic day/night mirror in the cabin. Either of those circuits could be shorted to ground. When that happens of course all the other...

Chrysler Repair: 2.7L engine: setting timing chains
Did you follow the procedure shown on the pages that I sent to you? I believe that if you look carefully at the procedure it should turn out properly. Did I send you the pages that show your engine? If not, let me try to send you another set that may be the...

Chrysler Repair: 2000 Intrepid A/C Transducer Test
Hi Tim, The transducer connects a 5v supply voltage coming from pcm pin 62 to pin 2 of the transducer over to pin 3 of the transducer that then goes to pin 42 if the refrigerant pressure is neither too low not too high. So if you are reading only 0.7V that...

Chrysler Repair: 2002 .3.3/3.8L: codes 0442,0445, 1193, speed sesor
Hi Angie, The O442 and 0455 codes are about the system near the fuel tank which collects and recycles gas vapors to the engine in order to prevent the vapor leaking into the atmosphere. They report that there is a leak in the system which most likely is simply...

Chrysler Repair: 2006 300: oil pressure warning light, rough idle, smoke
Hi Priscilla, The oil light will flash (and likely the beeping is simply an audible warning to you as well) when the oil pressure is dropping below the minimum safe level but then quickly rising above that level so the light goes off, only to repeat that...

Chrysler Repair: '98 Concorde: stalling when rains
Hi Lisa, At this point, the only clue we have is the shut-off/then recovery in 40 minutes which is often the behavior when a rotational sensor is failing. If he would like to test this out he can experience it himself, then while it won t start test for the...

Chrysler Repair: '99 Cirrus shows No Bus
I doubt there is an overvoltage problem that breaks the pcm or the crank sensor. Rather I wonder if there is another bus module or wire connection situation that improves when a part is replaced but then deteriorates again. That is why a more sophisticated...

Chrysler Repair: 99 Jeep Cherokee V8 Engine Shut Down

Chrysler Repair: Chrysler town and country: stabilizer bar link replacement
Hi Kitty, I would not have specific info about brands of links. I did look at the manual and found that there are some quite specific instructions about the procedure to follow when doing the struts, sway bar bushings, and the links. It may be that the mechanic...

Chrysler Repair: Cruise Control On 2002 Chrysler Concorde LXI
Hi Bill, The power for the cruise control is fuse 1 in the fuse box at the left end of the dash so verify that is not blown. The most likely cause for a non-function is the clockspring which is a flexible connection between the steering wheel and the steering...

Chrysler Repair: engine shuts-off when shift out of neutral/park
Hi Marc, No, the torque converter lock-up is usually done by an electrical device unrelated to fluid, but I don t have the specifics about the Jeep trans that is in your 90 s model. Hopefully it will be a part that can be replaced without removing the trans....

Chrysler Repair: 2000 Intrepid A/C Transducer Test

Chrysler Repair: Headlights won't turn off: '92 Lebaron convert
Hi John, That is great news. I suspect that pin 20 is set to alert you if you leave the head lamps on with the key removed, so see if that alert function might now be absent. But even if it is, the ability to turn off the lamps is terrific. You are welcome....

Chrysler Repair: Headlights won't turn off: '92 Lebaron convert
Hi John, The orange/white wires do two things at the body control module, I believe. One is the headlamps on alert and the other is to open/close the concealed headlamp covers via their three relays. I am not clear whether those covers stay open if you...

Chrysler Repair: P0441
Hi Mike, This is a matter of degree involving the fuel evaporation recycling system and is not dangerous. The air pollution output will be above normal but no danger. It suggests either the solenoid is not function properly or one of the vapor recover hoses...

Chrysler Repair: P1494 P1495 - 2002 CHRYSLER TOWN AND COUNTRY
Then the output speed sensor on the transmission should be checked: verify that pin 1 (dark green/violet) of its plug is connected to pin 13 or the TCM and 2 (dark green/brown) 14. Then check that you get...

Chrysler Repair: Possible problems with car not being driven for extended period of time
Hi John, If the environment was not extreme and the garage was attached to a house then it would not have been any extreme sort of temperature or humidity experience for the truck. My main concern would be whether the engine was not operated at all, even...

Chrysler Repair: Relay panel above glove box '92 Fifth Avenue
Hi Dave, The electrical complexity of these 92 models is surprising. The relay panel above the glove box is called the relay bank and that 5 relay bank is affiliated with the security alarm system and is also relating to the body computer. It has...

Chrysler Repair: Transmission codes:0841, 1776
Hi John, Those 2 codes point to the L-R solenoid switch or the pressure switch sense circuit or components which are part of the solenoid pack. You could verify the connection from pin D of the trans control relay (the middle pin of the socket) and pin 6...

Chrysler Repair: '00 Sebring JXI Convertible Seat Belt Issues
The power distribution box is rectangular and is long and narrow from fromt to rear and is located slightly to the right of the midline of the engine compartment, wedged between two similar but shorter boxes. The rear end is slightly hidden under the engine...

Chrysler Repair: '04 Sebring:headlights/parking lights won't go off
Hi Jodi, Fuse #7 (20 amp) in the fuse block at the left-hand end of the dash is what powers the parking/tail lamps at the front/rear. So if you remove that it should shut off the lights unless there is a short from another source that is touching the wire...

Chrysler Repair: '04 Sebring: unexplained battery drain
Hi Michelle, There is one relay for the wipers which is able to get current even with the key off, and that comes via fuse 18 in the power box in the engine compartment. Similarly there is a fuse 20 in that box which powers part of the headlamp circuit that...

Chrysler Repair: '05 Pacifica: no starter action. Is it the PCM?
Hi Dan, The one problem I have with that explanation is that you said that you heard a soft click when you tried the starter, back in the history of this situation. That would show that the PCM was grounding the starter relay at that point in time, otherwise...

Chrysler Repair: 1990 Dodge Spirit: weak/no spark
Hi Aaron, The 12 code simply means the battery was disconnected sometime in the recent past, and the 55 code just verifies that the readout is completed. So there is no clue as to the problem in the those codes. So if the engine will run properly with the...

Chrysler Repair: 1999 Chrysler T&C minivan: missing
Hi Eileen, I would check whether there is a fault code stored in the engine controller which will point us toward the problem. Turn the ignition key: on-off-on-off-on and leave on doing that in 5 seconds or less elapsed time. Then watch the odometer window...

Chrysler Repair: '90 5th Ave.: ABS wheel sensor problem
Hi Mike, Did the mechanic check that the tone wheel is not out round or dented such that the spacing is greater than 0.25 mm? Not only the continuity of the wires should be checked but also that they are not shorted together or that neither wire individually...

Chrysler Repair: '91 2.2L: failure to start
Hi Wolfgang, You can temporarily by-pass the ASD by removing it and jumping a wire from the front to the rear pin of the socket. That will put 12v on the coil and fuel pump but should not be operated regularly that way for safety reasons. Then you could...

Chrysler Repair: The 93 concorde again.....
Hi Steven, Did you also replace the level sensor or did a new one come with the pump unit? There are some details about changing out the level sensor if you had to do that which might not have been observed. The level works by changing the resistance to ground...

Chrysler Repair: '94 LeBaron: rear quarter trim panel removal
Hi Jody, I assume that you are trying to access the quarter window motor, correct? The interior panel is called the quarter trim panel. Here is a brief description that I copied from the Yahoo group s Chrysler LeBaron Club: I have a 92, and just removed...

Chrysler Repair: '95 Concorde: dies a second after starting/no codes
Hi David, You might want to verify that you are not loosing the spark after a second of running by observing a spark plug socket that has been pulled and a screwdriver inserted then held by the insulated handle so the shaft is about 1/4 from the cylinder...

Chrysler Repair: '98 sebring lxi 2.5L: no fuel injector pulsation
Hi Sam, If you are getting spark and fuel pump action then the ASD relay is being activated which would only happen if the pulsations from both the crankshaft and the distributor (cam shaft) sensors were working. That means that also the injector drivers...

Chrysler Repair: '99 Sebring Jxi 2.5L starts then stalls
Hi Katrina, Sorry for the delay a but I just found your question in the pool to which it had been referred by the other expert , Kevin. My suggestion is that your Dad locate the exhaust gas recirculation valve on your 2.5L V-6 engine and then again that...

Chrysler Repair: alarm stop working
Hi Tco, I assume that by the alarm with its replaced batteries you are speaking of the remote keyless entry device. As you list all the items that are not working the one common factor is that they all need to have a functioning ignition off draw fuse....

Chrysler Repair: bushings on rear leaf springs: '99 mini-van
Hi Shafique, The 98 and 02 manuals show a single bushing at the front of each leaf spring, no bushing at the rear. There is a difference in the design of the bushing between those two model years, and also a difference therefor in the special tools needed...

Chrysler Repair: Chrysler 2008 T&C: battery drains
Hi Mark, Unless the windows are powered for usage with the ignition off , I would doubt those are the source of the battery drain. I believe those don t get connected to the battery until the key is in the on position. So you have a standard problem with...

Chrysler Repair: '99 Chrysler 300m stuck on defrost
Thanks for the rating and nomination. I will only be available tomorrow morning, but will be again on Friday morning if we can t exchange q and a tomorrow. One other idea is that perhaps the button for defrost is stuck in the closed position. So try simultaneously...

Chrysler Repair: crank/no crank: '97 Sebring lxi
The manual shows there to be a center console where the heater and radio are located. At the bottom of that stack is an opening, perhaps covered with a removable panel behind which on the right side of the opening is the starter relay. (There are two relays,...

Chrysler Repair: electrical problem- interior lights
Hi Ron, My last observation was that your interior lighting is working the way it is supposed based upon the description of it in my 94 Chrysler service manual. But I would believe that if the lights stay on beyond 30 seconds after closing the door or...

Chrysler Repair: Heating/Cooling illumination/power windows on '00 300M
Hi Susan, I don t understand what you mean by chug . Does the engine die and then not run well when you restart it, or does it just not accelerate from a stop? Describe chug a bit more. The digital display for the comfort system is powered by the same...

Chrysler Repair: '01 Cherokee stalling

Chrysler Repair: Hood latch cable broken
Hi Patricia, The latch mechanism has an arm (or what they call a pawl ) which protrudes forward from the mechanism. It is accessible from under the car by reaching up through the space between the bumper(which is called the fascia) and the cross member that...

Chrysler Repair: Interior lights stay on when doors are closed
Hi Ron, My observation so far is that your lighting is working the way it is supposed based upon the description of it in my 94 Chrysler service manual. I would believe that if the lights stay on beyond 30 seconds then it may indeed be the driver s door...

Chrysler Repair: radiator fan sometimes stays on in wet weather
Hi Gary, Except for if you have the defrost or A.C. activated the fans should not come on immediately after starting the engine. However, why in wet weather is an unknown to me. I will send the pages shortly. The capacity of the cooling system is 13 quarts...

Chrysler Repair: SEBRING CONVERTIBLE TOP-SWAP
Hi Alan, The instructions are the same. I don t know for certain whether there were any significant modifications of the top dimensions so you might want to verify that the component part numbers for 01 and 05 tops are identical, at a dealer parts counter....

Hi Ray, The starter motor is seen clearly from underneath the car, on the side of the engine that faces the front of the car, at the rear of the engine, about mid-line on the engine just above the edge of the oil pan. It is cylindrical in shape, is about...

Chrysler Repair: '05 300C: no communication with TCM
That light(s) has to do with the anti-lock brake system. I see in the manual it is about Brake Assist and about Electronic Stability Program, but I see no relationship between those functions and the transmission. So I think fixing the tcm will not change...

Chrysler Repair: Transmission oil pan install: '10 T & C
Hi Nabil, I checked both the 4- and 6-speed automatic transmission oil pan remove/replace information. Both use a 1/8 bead of Mopar ATF-RTV (MS-GF-41) around the edge of the pan and under the heads of the bolts. The 4-speed bolts are tightened to 165 inch-pounds,...

Chrysler Repair: '01 300M: no crank/no start
Hi Colin, Check fuse 13 in the junction block at the left end of the dash as it might have a subtle crack in its wire. Then also verify that the fuse shows 12v on to be present on both ends when you have the key in both the run and the start position of the...

Chrysler Repair: '01 T & C: A/C Not Working after compressor replaced
Hi Fernando, First, did you follow the procedure to Evacuate air and moisture from the system? That requires some special devices to do properly. It may be that is your problem because the pressure is too high in the system, and you might do well to have...

Chrysler Repair: '04 Sebring 2.7L engine shaking at start up
Hi Matt, The 2302 does point to the intensity of the spark being weak. The gap on the plugs is supposed to be 0.48-0.53. Check the spark plug wire to be sure it is less than 10k ohms. Check the coil for a carbon track or damage, also check the boot (though...

Chrysler Repair: '90 new yorker electronic transmission not shifting
Hi Mike, That sounds like it is working in 2nd gear only which is called limp-in mode and it does that when the trans control module has noticed a fault which it seeks to minimize any damage from by cutting the power to the gear changing mechanisms until...

Chrysler Repair: 1991 Chrysler Anti theft system disarm
Hi Phil, If you disconnect the 21-pin natural color plug from behind the glove box while the engine is running then indeed that should disable that system without locking up the start function. Did you drive it a bit before turning it off, but after pulling...

Chrysler Repair: 1994 Chrysler LHS: BCM
Hi Mar, So you are not getting any flashing of the check engine light at all? The dinger and interior light flashing may have to do with alerting you that you have the key in the ignition AND that the driver side door is open, which is probably a normal alert....

Chrysler Repair: 1998 Cirrus 2.5l won't start

Chrysler Repair: 92 Lebaron conv smog check
Hi John, The 12 fault code battery disconnected recently will remain showing until you turn the ignition on-off for 50 to 100 times. It is not based upon distance driven. You can check for fault codes with the ignition key: on-off-on-off-on and leave...

Chrysler Repair: 94 LHS Electrical Issues
Hi Mar, Interesting result, in that the voltage of the battery should be 12.4V or so, but that could be your meter in error. The lack of voltage on fuse 10 would explain why no windshield wipers, no radio, and no turn signals. Those other functions are on...

Chrysler Repair: '97 2.5L codes 0118, 1391
Hi Gregg, The 0118 code is reporting that the signal voltage output of the engine coolant temp sensor is too high, which means that there is something the matter with either the sensor itself or with the wires of the sensor. The sensor is located on the coolant...

Chrysler Repair: '98 Sebring Convt 2.5L: engine clatter at start-up
Hi Norm, It is difficult to know without hearing it in person. But clattering does suggest valve train noise perhaps due to the oil pressure not being sufficient to stiffen the hydraulic valve lifters. Is it possible that you are using too thin a grade of...

Chrysler Repair: AC blowing hot air only passenger side: '00 minivan
Hi Bob, There are two separate blend door actuators if it behaves as you describe. Those doors are what set the air temp for the driver and the passenger separately. Probably the passenger side door actuator is not working or it could be the door itself...

Chrysler Repair: distributor/oil pump drive: 2.2L
Hi Wolfgang, I doubt that you have a serious mechanical issue. The distributor and the oil pump are driven by the intermediate shaft and that shaft has a sprocket that is driven by the timing belt. My suspicion is that your timing belt is broken and you need...

Chrysler Repair: engine cranks but won't start: '96 2.5L
Hi Michael, It sounds like you have the 2.5L V-6 engine. The best approach would be to get a fault code readout from the engine controller. Use the ignition key: Turn it on-off-on-off-on and leave on doing that in 5 seconds or less elapsed time. Then watch...

Chrysler Repair: Malfunction Indicator LightL code 0340

Chrysler Repair: Transmission leak: 41 TE Cirrus/Stratus/Sebring
Hi Vahan, I don t have experience or any recommendations for stop leak of transmission fluid. I would suggest that you begin by jacking up the front left side and see where the wettest surface appears to be located on the transmission as that may show you...

Chrysler Repair: Wipers will not work: '02 mini-van

Chrysler Repair: '00 Dodge Caravan: brake lamps
Hi Randy, The 98 manual I have also applies to the 00 as far as I can tell but tell me if you don t agree because I also have the 02 manual. It shows the fuse for the brake lamps is #13 (20 amp) located in the power box in the engine compartment. If that...

Chrysler Repair: 2000 Chrysler Sebring no start
That is another key fuse in that it powers the spark/fuel system and it is also a power source for the engine controller which if that doesn t have power will not signal the starter relay to be activated. The clue to that fuse being bad would be that the...

Chrysler Repair: '02 sebring conv. power windows don't work
Hi Al, Check fuse #4 (15 amp) in the fuse box in the cabin as that powers the window drop relay that activates the other three windows that apparently are not working. If that doesn t fix this then a fault code reader using a plug-in diagnostic readout box...

Chrysler Repair: '04 300m: ATC code 23
Hi Mike, That code points toward the blend door actuator feedback signal. Most likely it is a failure of the actuator but you can check the wire from the actuator to the body control module to be sure that wire is connected. The actuator is on the underside...

Chrysler Repair: '04 Sebring sedan: no starter motor/no start
Hi Rachel, Did you check fuse 8 (20 amp) in the power box in the engine compartment? If that were open that would be a reason for no starter action, and depending upon which engine/transmission you have it could also cause a failure to start even when you...

Chrysler Repair: '05 300: p0197/p0730
Hi Selina, The P0197 codes says that the temperature sensor for the engine oil has a voltage reading that is below what is expected, suggesting either a bad sensor or a short circuit of the signal wire to the ground wire or to a bare metal surface near the...

Chrysler Repair: '05 T & C: no horn action
Hi Greg, The horn switch is connected to horn relay via the powerbox in the engine compartment. That power box also activates the relay for the other horn requests. Because the horn is working other that from the steering column I believe that is the location...

Chrysler Repair: '05 T & C horn/airbag problem
Hi Greg, The fact that other circuits will activate the horn and that the airbag light is on suggests to me that the clockspring is indeed not connecting. The wiring from the clockspring to the horn and the airbag circuits are different pathways so it would...

Chrysler Repair: '06 Sebring 2.7 V6 - P0613 TCM?
Hi Deb, You didn t mention if there was any noticeable change in the way the car is running. Interestingly, although the 0613 has TCM in its title, the explanation rather points to the powertrain control module, PCM. Similarly the 1603 and 1604 point to...

Chrysler Repair: '08 300 won't start
Hi Rick, The starter relay in the main power box should click when the key is moved to the start position so check to see whether that does happen or not. The gear shift must be in P or N. The theft system status light is located on the push-button pad...

Chrysler Repair: 1995 Pontiac Grand Am overheating
Hi Bill, Does the radiator fan(s) come on when the temp gauge moves toward H? If not, that would cause overheating if it didn t and that might be due to a fuse, fan relay, or temp sensor wiring. Have you looked through the radiator fins putting a light behind...

Chrysler Repair: 2003 town country 3.8l: code P1496
Hi Fred, The 1496 says that the voltage of the 5V supply is below 4V. I would believe that there is either a short circuit in the 5 volt pink/yellow wire that runs from pin 61 of the powertrain control module to three sensors: the manifold absolute pressure...

Chrysler Repair: 2004 Sebring Whine & Battery Light On

Chrysler Repair: '90 Lebaron:turn signal/hazard/multi-function

Chrysler Repair: '97 Sebring: no start, no fuel, no spark
Hi Steve, Though you didn t say I will assume this is a 2.5L V-6 engine because you mentioned a back fuel rail wire under the manifold. But then you asked about a noise suppressor but there is no suppressor on the V-6, just on the 2.4L 4 cylinder engine....

Chrysler Repair: '99 Breeze 2.0L erratic start, code P0403
Hi Mark, I am not sure what is the relationship of the fans or their codes to the no start/quitting while driving. But I suspect the 0403 which points to the egr valve solenoid circuit may be the cause as that circuit uses the output of the autoshutdown relay...

Chrysler Repair: '99 Concorde: code 1685

Chrysler Repair: '99 Concorde: PDC fuses diagram
Hi Leon, Do you hear the fuel pump run for a second or so when you turn the key to run position? That is what I am trying to learn from you because you say you can get the engine to operate with starter fluid being sprayed into the air intake. If you don...

Chrysler Repair: '99 Concorde: no start,code P1685
Hi Leon, I responded to your message about the codes, so look for that in your in-box. If your ignition keys have a plastic/rubber bulge in the handle then that indicates that you do have the SKIM system and that would be relevant to the 1685 code which says...

Chrysler Repair: Grand Voyager LE CRD 2006: Fault codes

Chrysler Repair: Intrepid 2.7L:engine died, oil level increased/coolant leaking
Hi George, It is likely also the case that the coolant level in the bottle will be down or empty, so check that out. For the fluid in the crankcase to increase in volume by a quart or more on its own accord would indeed suggest to me that it is coolant...

Chrysler Repair: '94 New Yorker: etax relay by-pass

Chrysler Repair: Removing front fascia on a 1997 chrysler lhs
Hi Kyle, I have the 94 and 98 manuals and they differ slightly in the description of how to remove the front fascia. One way to tell is to look at the splash shield (the inner fender directly in front of each front tire) and notice whether there is a large...

Chrysler Repair: theft/security system location: '99 minivan

Chrysler Repair: '07 T&C - no reverse, code 0733

Chrysler Repair: 3.0 V6: Engine noise in the morning (cold start), power stearing, valve lifter
power stearing, valve lifter, stetoscope: Hi Frank, It could be that as you increase the rpm the oil pressure rises which lubricates whatever parts are making noise, so it seems to be not proportional to the rpm directly.

orange wire, devery, exact problem: Hi Devery, I don t believe that the 2 ohm reading is a problem. I can t recall where I got the specific value of around 1 ohm but I doubt that a reading of 2 represents a questionable coil resistance. What I would suggest is that you take a look at thefuel...
