1998 Chrysler Cirrus Problems

Automatic Transmission May Fail Prematurely

The automatic transmission used in these vehicles have had a high failure rate. Failures can be due to internal component or electrical component failure.

The Cruise Control and Speedometer May Fail Due to Speed Sensor Issues

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.
