Chrysler Repair: '93 Dodge Grand Caravan: no start
Hi Dave, As you know the 12 code is about disconnecting the battery, and the 55 means end of code readout. My favorite candidate when you have a no start with no codes is the exhaust gas recirculation valve being stuck ajar. Interestingly another 93 minivan...

Chrysler Repair: '96 Neon: Fault code 37
Hi Tony, The 37 code is for the torque converter clutch circuit of the three speed automatic transmission having s problem. If you have that transmission then the code is relevant, otherwise not. If you do, then take a close look at fuse 10 which powers that...

Chrysler Repair: '98 Sebring 2door sedan sun roof
Hi Richard, I do have a hard copy of the 00 manual for this vehicle and there are 6 pages about servicing the sunroof which I can Xerox copy and postal mail to you at No Cost. Let me know your postal mailing address and I will do so. I found your question...

Chrysler Repair: '98 T&C stalling and rough idle
On the PTC s, I meant to say those 5 are located in the 10 socket row just below the 4 many-wire plugs of the junction box (not at the bottom of the box). I guess you need to explain to me what is a voltage drop test . It is a term I haven t heard before....

Chrysler Repair: '99 mini-van:ATC heater front blower motor
Hi Don, Is this a conventional (4-speed blower) or an automatic temp control unit(many speed blower)? Those have different circuits. But I wonder that pulling the fuse and even the blower relay doesn t stop it because those are the source of power for the...

Chrysler Repair: anti theft no crank 2001 van
Hi Dave, That is how I read what you reported. It is hard to know which circuits BCM #1 and 2 are responsible for because the wiring diagrams don t reveal that. But it only has 4 fuses: 14 is the iod, 24 is for the hazard lighting, and everything else that...

Chrysler Repair: No backup lights: '06 T & C
Thanks for that information, Gary. The internal details of all the IOD #14 fuse s wiring/function is not shown in the wiring diagrams of the bcm so it is apparently tied into the back-up lamp circuit also, but I can t understand why simply taking it out and...

Chrysler Repair: Chrys. 2005 - 300 Starter circuitry
Hi Bud, I see my error...the orientation of the integrated power module, and thus what I was calling in-board/outboard, front/rear is off by 90 degrees! BUT regardless of that you should have seen 12v on the fuse 10 when you turned the key to start. The 12v...

Chrysler Repair: Chrysler 300C 2005; code 0520
Hi Lisa, The check engine light for a fault code doesn t automatically extinguish itself when you correct the problem, unless Autozone purposely erased it after they did the readout. You have to purposely erase the code and then watch to be sure that it doesn...

Chrysler Repair: Cirrus Transmission: no power output after fluid change
Hi Gary, The siphon approach may not result in the collection of all the fluid from the torque converter, oil cooler and lines thereto. It requires pressure to drive out those 5 quarts. I think only a power flush will remove all the fluid, but if the Castrol...

Chrysler Repair: Climate Control Issues
Hi Ross, The windshield defroster request actually does also actuate the AC compressor because cold air is able to remove the condensation better than warm air blowing on the windshield. If the sound seems to be coming from the engine compartment rather than...

Chrysler Repair: '03 3.3/3.8L minivan engine: code 1193, stalling when hot
Hi Sue, I assume that you have found the intake air sensor and removed its plug. If you have placed the leads of the meter on its two pins and get a reading of 10.6 with the scale set for 200k that means the resistance is 10.6K ohms. That may be OK depending...

Chrysler Repair: Concorde security system issue
Hi Andy, The vehicle theft security armed allow the starter to crank over the engine and to start and run, but only for about 2 seconds. So if it won t activate the starter, or start and run for 2 seconds then that is a different problem. The wire from the...

Chrysler Repair: Vehicle theft system: '01 Sebring sedan
Question: what I need is to know if that test I can do to determine if the ECU is that produces failure of not starting the car. It is a 4-door model LE engine year 2001 2.0 vin 1C3ALB6Y81N704069 WILL NOT START REPLACE THE IMMOBILIZER MODULE ON THE...

Chrysler Repair: engine idles erratic, code 0340
Hi Michael, Yes, it is possible the lifters are not filled with oil. There is a page in the shop manual about this sort of problem which I can copy and attach to an email. To do that I need to know your email address which I don t see routinely. So send me...

Chrysler Repair: '90 Lebaron 3.0L alternator circuit
Chrysler Repair: '90 Lebaron 3.0L alternator circuit

Chrysler Repair: Follow Up: Cirrus Transmission: no power output after fluid change
Hi Gary, The first thing I would look at is the thickness of the brake pads on that wheel. There are fitted to some pads, when installed new, some metal feelers which when the pads thin to a pre-determined thickness these touch the rotor and produce an...

Chrysler Repair: Head Gasket leak; 2.4L DOHC
Hi Michael, Why not check at the parts counter of a dealer to see what type they are selling? The only fine point in the manual is that the part number on the gasket should be facing up and of course that the bolts should be checked for thread necking...

Chrysler Repair: No Heat: '02 Concorde ATC control
Hi Jose, The procedure for checking out the code 36 is to use a volt-ohm meter to check the voltage supply to the ATC control unit itself, mounted in dash (the digital control for the HVAC system) and then to check the continuity of 5 wires between the unit...

Chrysler Repair: P0140, P0733, P1698, P0720 and P0700 codes coming from 1997 Chryslet town and country
Hi Rao. The codes 0700. 0720, 0733, 1698 are related to the transmission. It is possible that one simple repair will solve the problem: change the output speed sensor which screws into the side of the transmission at the very rear of it (the side which faces...

Chrysler Repair: PT Cruiser:gear shift position lamp replacement
Hi Jonathan, I would suspect the bulb is burned out, it is a T194 bulb. To get to it you remove the set screw on the back side of the gear shift knob and then the know, remove the 4 vertical screws that hold the floor console in position (two at the very...

Chrysler Repair: Removing Broken Center Crankshaft-harmonic balancer Bolt 1994 Plymouth Voyager SE 3.3L Gas Engine
Hi John, I can t see any relationship between the belt tension and a motor mount. Everything involved with the belt is attached to the motor proper and would be unaffected by a mount problem. I don t think you need to buy a straight edge to verify that all...

Chrysler Repair: Right sliding door:'06 T& C
Hi Bill, You didn t mention whether the door can be opened or closed by hand. If it can, then presumably it is not a problem with a mechanical binding up. It could be the latch is not releasing, so try operating it by power when it is ajar and see what happens....

Chrysler Repair: Right Turnsignal Problem
Hi Rick, Rather than a short to ground I would believe there is a high resistance or an open in the circuit that goes from the right front turn signal relay to the right front turn signal filament/bulb socket, or the right front turn signal relay itself has...

Chrysler Repair: Solenoid pack, valve body removal.
Hi Jonathan, About the only items that I see is that you may not have rotated the shift lever one position beyond the L position of the shifter. Because that position is not routinely used it may be stiff to get to that. Then remove the lever. It doesn...

Chrysler Repair: 03 stratus 2.4 auto: trans code 1790
Hi Geoffrey, That code is a speed error code (the input and output sensors don t agree that the ratio is appropriate for any one of the gears). It should have a second code stored with it, so if this was not found by means of a plug-in code reader I would...

Chrysler Repair: '04 2,4L: loss of coolant
I still don t have an idea about how much and where you are loosing coolant, Danny, As to the refill procedure, notice that there is a bleed valve just below the base of the neck where you refill the system. Put a plastic hose on that, open the valve, and...

Chrysler Repair: 1991 jeep cherokee lerado: speedometer inaccurate
Hi Jesse, I don t have manuals for Jeep that far back so I have to guess. I wonder if the tire or wheel size has been changed since the vehicle was first sold? Other than that there may be an electronic setting that could be changed with a diagnostic readout...

Chrysler Repair: 1998 T&C stalling and rough idle
Hi Don, Test 1A is to corroborate that there is appropriate connection for the DRB at the diagnostic data link. Specifically check that pin 4 is grounded and that there is 12v on pin 16. That is if you are using the DRB, otherwise it is not relevant. As...

Chrysler Repair: 1998 T&C stalling and rough idle
Hi Don, Correct. the site sets the limit at 2 follow-ups, so a new question is needed. Based upon your voltage drop measurements, nothing jumps out at me about the items that you focused upon. Thanks for explaining about those techniques. So then looking...

Chrysler Repair: 2.6 exhaust noise in the engine compartment
If there are no other disconnected tubes/pipes around that area I would have to believe that they are supposed to be connected and from what is described in the 83 manual that connection includes the air aspirator valve. Does the rubber tube connect to the...

Chrysler Repair: 2.7 sebring in limp mode: codes 0720, 0731
Hi Nathan, The code for the input sensor is 0725 but it not being there doesn t necessarily mean that it isn t bad. It is less expensive than the next step which is the solenoid/pressure switch pack itself. So try the sensor (and check its wiring and the...

Chrysler Repair: 2.7 sebring in limp mode: codes 0720, 0731
Hi Nathan, The first code says there is a disagreement between the rotational speed of the input sensor and the output sensor of the transmission, while the second code points more directly at the output speed sensor being inconsistent. On that basis I would...

Chrysler Repair: 2000 Chrysler Cirrus LXi accelerator problems
Hi Maria, I would believe that it involves purely mechanical binding at the pedal, the cable/sheath between the pedal and the throttle body valve, or the throttle body butterfly valve shaft. Ideally just locating and lubricating the spot will do the trick....

Chrysler Repair: 2002 Chrysler Concorde: no start
Hi Andy, If the click is loud enough to hear in the cabin then that means that the circuit that should activate the starter motor is working. The problem then is either the heavy duty connection wires are possibly loose or corroded. OR the starter motor itself...

Chrysler Repair: 2004 Sebring in limp mode
Hi Nathan, Correct, but that is not the whole story. Then you need to get a fault code readout directly from the trans controller, using a plug-in code reader. A nationwide auto parts store like Autozone will often do that for free, or a shop will charge...

Chrysler Repair: 2004 sebring limp mode
Hi Nathan, Try turning the ignition switch: on-of-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 be replaced by 4-digit number(s) preceded by a P. Let me know what you see...

Chrysler Repair: 2005 300C: code 0522
Hi Laurie, Does the oil light go off when you are moving and the engine rpm is above 1,000 rpm? If yes and it only come on when you are stopped but with the engine running, then the first step would be to change the engine oil to the next higher weight...

Chrysler Repair: 2008 Chrysler Town and Country Sliding Door Handle Replacement
Hi Josh, Good to learn that you could do the repair. I believe the manuals are only on CD. Chrysler has a website called TechAuthority.com but the prices are high plus extra charges for shipping and handling. By chance I bought a CD on eBay from someone...

Chrysler Repair: 2008 Sebring 2.4l crankshaft sensor location
Hi Brian, In light of that code (which is also shown for 0016 by the way) my first inclination would be to check the timing marks comparing the crank position and the cam shaft position marks. You would need to remove the front top timing belt cover. To see...

Chrysler Repair: '91 3.3L warm stalling
Hi George, The 62 code probably is due to the discrepancy between the mileage reading recorded in the pcm and in the instrument cluster. I would doubt this is related to the rough running. So check out the egr valve when you get the car back. It is located...

Chrysler Repair: '92 Dynasty/New Yorker: headlamp switch
Sorry, the tan circuit E1 wire is connected to I on the switch, and the black/yellow L7 wire for the dash/marker etc. lights is directly adjacent to I . Both of those are close to H . What do you mean by all the lights ? Tell me specifically, please....

Chrysler Repair: '92 Dynasty/New Yorker:marker/cluster lights don't go off
Hi Karla, Yes, that would suggest that somehow contact R (of the black/yellow wire connected to R) is getting 12v when it should not get when the switch is in the off position. Thanks for the rating/nomination. Roland PS About the error . It may not...

Chrysler Repair: '92 electronic cluster: loss of speedo when headlights 'on'
Hi Karla, I don t see an obvious connection between the headlamp circuit and the electronic instrument cluster. The parts of the cluster that fail are those related to information that comes to the cluster digitally on what is called the digital data bus...

Chrysler Repair: '92 transmission in limp mode, can't get fault code
Hi Bill, I would go to a shop that has either a Snap-on or a Chrysler dealer DRB tool and get a code readout of the transmission control module using the blue data link connector plug under the dash at the left end. Through 95 the reader is for OBD-I codes...

Chrysler Repair: '93 dodge carvan; No starter action
Hi Michelle, It may just be a weak or discharged battery. The current required for the headlights is much greater than for the other lights you mention, and the current to turn the starter motor is very much greater. So the battery can do the small lights,...

Chrysler Repair: '95 Sebring coupe: charging circuit code 41.

Chrysler Repair: 98 T&C Flashing lights
Hi Charlie, The one item that clearly is being coded for is the evaporator probe which is a temp sensor in the HVAC housing that is positioned in the fins of the evaporator (the place where the refrigerant expands and thus gets cold, the air flows over the...

Chrysler Repair: Accessory drive belt pulley: 3.3./3.8L
Hi Greg, There is no instruction in the manual about that belt tensioner pulley. I would suggest that you go to a dealer parts counter where the parts manual has drawings to see whether the pulley is sold separately and if so how it is attached. If not, then...

Chrysler Repair: Anti-Theft won't disarm: '06 Chrysler 300
I am so pleased to learn of your success, Shaina. I was wondering how things were going. As I read through the manual it wasn t clear to me how the key cylinder in the driver door is supposed to work. It speaks of rotating the key once to open the driver...

Chrysler Repair: Battery light coming on 2002 Chrysler voyager
Hi Marco, The battery light staying on does mean that the voltage on the system is below specification which usually does mean the alternator is not putting out the power it is supposed to. You could check out the alternator wiring and the drive belt and...

Chrysler Repair: crankshaft sensor plug wiring
Hi Jon, What is the year, model, and engine (L) of the vehicle? Usually the one on the left is the operating voltage (5 or 8 volts, orange color or violet/white, pin 1), the middle wire is the sensor ground (black/light blue, pin 2) and the right side is...

Chrysler Repair: defroster will not blow out top:.'04 Pacifica

Chrysler Repair: Heater Problem, Driver's side: '06 300C
Hi Terry, The blend air door for the driver side is probably out of adjustment or not working. Fortunately there is a procedure for calibrating the actuators that moves all the doors in the HVAC unit. Unfortunately, with the automatic temp control type...

Chrysler Repair: Light/Electrical problem
Hi Karla, I have the wiring diagrams and I ll take a look. Be right back with what I learn. In the meantime, can you tell me if this is a conventional cluster or an electronic cluster? Also, does the speedo quit/gauges go to max when you try just the parking...

Chrysler Repair: Limp mode-1992 Lebaron: MAP sensor
Hi Dave, I have the voltage values based upon the pressure readings stated as inches of Mercury. They range from 4.6v all the way down to 0.34v as vacuum changes from .39 to 29 inches of Mercury. But I don t have voltages based upon rpm. So long as the reading...

Chrysler Repair: P0172 code 2003 dodge caravan
Hi Leigh, That code says the fuel/air ratio on the right side cylinder bank is too rich. The items that are candidates for the cause are: heated oxygen sensor on the right side exhaust manifold having a wiring problem or function issue (it has fragile wires),...

Chrysler Repair: security alarm reset: '98 T & C
The door lock motors also are wired through the hinge disconnects, but by different colored wires. If all the motors don t work then the door lock relay, unlock relay, or the circuit that activates those relays would be suspect. A faulty wire is the possible...

Chrysler Repair: Starting problems on 2000 Chrysler 300M

Chrysler Repair: Trans codes 21, 23, 24
Hi Terrence, Those are all codes related to the pressure switch circuits that are found in the solenoid pack which is the box mounted on the side of the transmission. Assuming that the fluid level is proper and that there are no damaged wires from the plug...

Chrysler Repair: '00 Chyrsler 300 ATC module
Hi Scott, Also check fuse 23 which is the power for the blower. I believe the best way to clear the codes is to disconnect the battery for a few minutes. That usually cancels present codes as I don t know for sure if fixing the problem cancels the codes....

Chrysler Repair: '00 Sebring convertible: several body electrical functions
Hi Bill, All those items have some relationship to the body control module. That module is powered by fuses 5,8,9,11,15 in the box behind the left end cap of the dash. I suspect that one of those fuses has a subtle crack in its wire which is opening up as...

Chrysler Repair: '02 Chrysler Concorde: no start
Hi Barbara, Turn the ignition switch 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 P. Let me know the number and we ll go from...

Chrysler Repair: 1997 Crysler Sebring JXi: wheel alignment
Hi Greg, I have the 98 Sebring Convertible manual and can photocopy and postal mail you the 7 pages that cover wheel alignment. Only the toe is adjustable on the front, and the toe and camber on the rear. It will cost about $ 1.40 to do that. You can reimburse...

Chrysler Repair: 1998 Erratic running

Chrysler Repair: 1999 Chrysler T & C turn signals/front blower
Hi David, Take a close look at fuse 12 under the dash (10 amp) as that is involved in both the front blower and the turn signals. It may have a subtle crack in the internal wire, so replace it or test it for continuity. Other than that it may be a wiring...

Chrysler Repair: 2001 300m seat memory
Hi Walt, It appears to me that the system involves the power seat switch, the module and the recliner motor. I am not certain why the system would not remember 1 out of 4 times. It would seem that the things you can check with an ohmmeter/continuity tester...

Chrysler Repair: 2004 sebring 2.7 crank but no start
Have you checked for voltage on fuse 24 when you first turn the key to run . It should show for about 1 second when the autoshutdown relay closes. It then opens until you start cranking via the starter motor. Let me know whether the ASD relay appears to be...

Chrysler Repair: 2005 Pacifica Blend Door Gear
Hi Dan, I reviewed the question of how to deal with a broken gear on the blend door. While that specific problem is not discussed it is the case that any internal problem with the air distribution requires that the air distributing housing part of HVAC unit...

Chrysler Repair: 91 lebaron: code 54/conv. hydraulic cylinder
Hi Joky, On the hydraulic cylinder it appears that you have to remove the interior rear quarter trim panel and also the extension of that panel, though I can t be sure as the manual only says to remove whatever interior panelling that is necessary. If you...

Chrysler Repair: '92 A-604 transmission: limp mode/debris in pan
Hi Dave, I haven t personal experience with debris in the trans oil pan. However the manual has a general statement that if you find it then that points toward removal and rebuilding of the unit. There is no quantity specified as to what is minimal vs....

Chrysler Repair: '93 concorde shuts down on bumps...
Hi Steve, I would check the continuity and connections of all 3 wires at that sensor. The violet/white wire goes to pin 6 of the powertrain control module and carries 5 volts, the black/light blue wire is a grounding reference wire to pin 4 of the pcm, and...

Chrysler Repair: '94 Chrysler LHS
Hi Ken, The recirculation door actuator is on the right hand end of the HVAC housing very close to the right side kick panel. It either works or doesn t and there is no feedback circuit that automatically adjusts it. You remove either the floor console...

Chrysler Repair: 94 New Yorker: power windows/heater
Hi Tom, That J fuse is simply a fuse. Is it blown or look carefully as it might have a subtle crack in its internal wire? Do you have a neon glow light or voltmeter to check for voltage across it and at the fuses/circuit breaker in the dash when the key...

Chrysler Repair: '94 New Yorker: power windows/heater
Hi Tom As I explained in the previous answer if fuses J in the box under the hood, and 6,7, and circuit breaker 21 at the end cap of the dash are all good, then you should find there to be 12v present on 6, 7 and 21 (both sides thereof) when you have the...

Chrysler Repair: '99 Minivan: power door locks cycling repeatedly
You could try the IOD fuse, certainly. All I can suggest is that the power locks can be set to lock automatically when the vehicle speed exceeds 15 mph, or that feature can be cancelled. I do believe that when the body computer can t successfully lock all...

Chrysler Repair: '99 PT Cruiser: codes 0731, 0733
Hi Dennis, Those codes say that there is an incorrect ratio between the output and input speed sensors of the transmission in 1st and 3rd gears. There is a long list of possible causes, but they group into 2 fixes . The least expensive is to replace the...

Chrysler Repair: auto shut down relay: 2.7L
Hi John, If pin 13 of that black connector is dark green/light green then that is the wire that is connected to fuse 24 which powers the c.o.p. s and the injectors. It would show 12v when the ASD relay is closed, i.e. when cranking the engine over, but not...

Chrysler Repair: Chryslar 300 will not shut down, now won't start.
If you hear a click once, or even repetitive clicks, that likely means that the voltage output of the battery is too low to activate the starter motor. I would believe that the battery is discharged, worn out, or not well connected. If you have checked the...

Chrysler Repair: Chrysler Cirrus 1995 Limp Mode Issues
Hi Vahan, I can copy the instructions and attach them to an email I will send to you directly. Let me know your email address, but don t use the @ symbol, instead use at or it will be erased. I would appreciate your doing a rating and nomination of me...

Chrysler Repair: Electrical: Radio/Sunroof: '06 Town and Country
Hi Seth, Those two items the are out share one thing in common, the accessory relay located in the power box under the hood (2nd relay, inboard side of the box, just behind the starter motor relay) powers both. That relay also powers the power windows...

Chrysler Repair: ENGINE WON'T START:
Hi Lala, One possible cause would be that the plug for the camshaft position sensor and the plug for the crankshaft position sensor are switched. Both are identical in shape and black in color. The cam sensor has a tan/yellow wire while the crank sensor...

Chrysler Repair: Follow up 2006 T & C
Thanks for the update. That is correct about disconnecting the battery to cancel out fault codes stored in the PCM memory, but I am surprised that the PCM didn t automatically notice that the downstream sensor was putting out a different signal. I wonder if...

Chrysler Repair: Fuel Economy
Hi Gary, I have the manual for the 06 (and similarly for the earlier models of that engine). I suspect that the thermostat is not seated properly in the coolant outlet connector (the part to which the hose is attached) because of the presence of some metal...

Chrysler Repair: indicator lights
HI Tasha, I will look in the manual about the lightning bolt indicator and get back about that. The malfunction indicator, about the engine I would presume, shows there is a fault that has been recognized and logged as a 4-digit number in the memory of the...

Chrysler Repair: neon 1996, hard start
Hi Tony,I found your question to Kevin in the pool where he had referred it. I am still away on vacation but will return home Sunday night. So send me a follow-up quesntion on Monday and tell me about what you found with the egr valve and the spray pattern...

Chrysler Repair: neon 96 hard start, idles rough, and cuts
Hi Tony, My 97 Neon manual (I don t have a 96) shows the regulator/filter to be on the top of the pump module, so in the 96 it is as you describe it. That sounds like a pressure regulator unit and likely it has the filter also. Have you gotten any fault...

Chrysler Repair: neon '96 hard to start, rough idling once started
Hi Tony, If you are certain there are no codes (ignition key on-off, no flashing of check engine light) then my best suggestion would be examine your egr (exhaust gas recirculation) valve to see that its stem is not gummed up such that it is stuck ajar. There...

Chrysler Repair: Possible purge solenoid issue?
Hi Steve, When it shuts down do all the electrically powered devices quit (lights as well as engine)? If so then you have a bad battery cable connection (could be the wires on either post or where their far ends connect) or it could be a flaky connection...

Chrysler Repair: rack and pinion interchangable?
Hi Don, The manuals don t make a distinction as to the remove and install based upon the model, and those being just a year apart should likely be inter-changeable. The best way to verify would be to check at a Chrysler dealer parts counter and have them...

Chrysler Repair: Radio not working: '95 New Yorker
Hi Eric, The radio s power antenna and the power seat switch both draw power from a circuit breaker in the fuse box behind the left end cap of the dash. It is possibly labelled either #23 or F35 and is the rearmost device in the top row of fuses. Check to...

Chrysler Repair: Rattling when accelerate/ Battery light
Hi Phil, that engine has only one drive belt and it powers the alternator, the water pump the power steering pump, air conditioning compressor, and then there is the powering pulley on the engine crankshaft as well as an idler pulley and a tensioner pulley....

Chrysler Repair: no start 2004 sebring conv. 2.7
Hi John, One thought: there are some plugs that are identical and so you can interchange them if they are near to one another and you have them apart. Like the cam and crank sensors have the same plug, and differ only in the wire on pin 3, which is tan/yellow...

Chrysler Repair: U0001, 00121, 0141-codes on chrysler 300
Hi Jan, There may not be a TCM in your vehicle because that is now combined with the engine control module in a single unit that deals with both parts. I believe the P0700 code may have been why he said that, as it does point to a problem involving the transmission...

Chrysler Repair: Warning chime on a 1989 Chrysler Lebaron Convervible
Given that history, I believe you will need to do some testing of the wiring to determine exactly what is causing the false chiming. It is likely either the key-in switch being stuck closed or the headlight switch similarly for that partuclar sub-circuit....

Chrysler Repair: '00 dodge intreped airbag problem, dodge intreped, 4 digit numbers
dodge intreped, 4 digit numbers, autoparts store: Hi Dink, Because the warning light is on it means there is a fault that has been detected with the system and a fault code number is stored in the restraint control module. You may get the code using the ignition key: on-off-on-off-on and leave on doing...

Chrysler Repair: 01 voyager: power steering not working, cold start, fluid flow
cold start, fluid flow, test tool: Hi Luke, It could be the power steering gear itself. Does the fluid seem foamy? Is it maintaining level with no leaks? Is the pump drive belt adjusted properly (not slipping)? There are a set of tests that can be done using a special tool (Chrysler no. 6815)...

Chrysler Repair: '02 T & C: no blower/turn signals, wipers on all the time, chrysler town and country, power relays
chrysler town and country, power relays, infinite resistance: Hi James, I don t see a connection between the blower and the wiper/directionals.

Chrysler Repair: '03 2.7L: Rough idle-stall, code 123, chrysler sebring, autoparts store
chrysler sebring, autoparts store, independent shop: Hi Shawn, On the code 0123 it would be good to look carefully at the wiring harness/plug of the tps as the code is saying that the signal output is higher than the normal range which could mean that the problem is a short in the several wires that go the...

2004 chrysler sebring, chrysler sebring, gasket intake: Hi Melissa, If it was idling roughly shortly after that engine work was done then the shop that did the work should put some effort into finding the reason.

Chrysler Repair: '86lebaron 2.2 turbo: no starter, solenoid switch, starter solenoid
solenoid switch, starter solenoid, acceptable voltage: No, the charge temp sensor has nothing to do with the starter/starter motor situation.

Chrysler Repair: engine swapping, gear ratios, initial concerns
gear ratios, initial concerns, compatibility issues: Hi James, I think of the 3.0L engine as being marketed mainly in the first half of the 90 s and then it was replaced by the 2.5L engine.

lebaron gtc, solenoid switch, trans tunnel: Hi Rick, Revised answer: I don t think this has anything to do with the shift indicator, if it is a valid code.

exhaust gas recirculation valve, exhaust gas recirculation, vacuum leak: Hi Shannon, The 1684 simply means that sometime in the past 50 on-off cycles the battery was disconnected.

crankshaft pulley, sprocket teeth, crank shaft: Hi Warren, As I read the manual: as long as each dot is between the two marks that is acceptable.

Chrysler Repair: venting coolant from overflow but temp gauge normal, head gasket leak, shaft bearings
head gasket leak, shaft bearings, radiator shop: Hi Rick, If the temp gauge only reaches to half-scale, and it seems as though the temp of the engine/expansion tank fluid is not really so high as to boil the coolant (which I assume has antifreeze mixed in at about 50% concentration), then I would wonder...

camshaft sensor, 2004 chrysler 300m, chrysler 300m: Thanks for that report, Wade. I am pleased that the cause of the short of the 5v supply to ground was found.

chrysler sebring, secondary location, primary winding: Hi Mike, I assume that you are rotating the engine by hand when looking for the oscillation from 5 to 0.3.

Chrysler Repair: 1998 Chrysler Sebring 2.5l v-6 no spark/no start, crankshaft position sensor, chrysler sebring
crankshaft position sensor, chrysler sebring, tensioner pulley: Hi Mike, Why not check for spark by either use of an insulated handle screwdriver inserted in one of the spark plug caps and held 1/4 from the cylinder head while a helper cranks the engine.

Chrysler Repair: 1998 Chrysler Sebring No Start, camshaft sensor, chrysler sebring
camshaft sensor, chrysler sebring, crank sensor: Hi Mike, Correct on the 2-pin connector: only one wire and it should show 12v when cranking the engine, IF there is cam and crank rotational signal also being produced.

crankshaft pulley, pulley bolt, sensor error: Hi Pablo, That may be true if you rotate to the .26 location and you put it in further very slowly you will get 5v without it touching.
