1996 Chrysler Cirrus Problems
If the car will not start, stalls, or hesitates while accelerating, it may be caused by wires in the wiring harness that are broken internally. This is typically found where the wires pass under the distributor.
Defective speed sensors on the transmission can cause problems with the cruise control and speedometer operation, as well as erratic shifting. The connectors on the sensors can corrode and/or the connector terminals can spread (poor connection), which will create similar symptoms. Any of these problems can cause Check Engine Light illumination.
There have been reports of premature head gasket failure; an updated gasket design is available to correct this problem.
The automatic transmission used in these vehicles have had a high failure rate. Failures can be due to internal component or electrical component failure.
