1990 Chrysler LeBaron Problems

Engine Start and Stall and/or Transmission Stuck in Second Gear

Vehicles may develop a start and die out condition or a transmission that defaults to second gear. Our technicians tell us that the transmission control module (TCM) may be at fault and require replacement. If the TCM is replaced the pinion factor should be reset and the quick learn procedure performed.

ABS light may turn on

The anti-lock brake (ABS) warning lamp may illuminate with "Modulator Fault" indicated by a scan tool. This would indicate a electrical fault, commonly caused by a faulty connection. ABS connectors should be inspected for problems if this situation occurs.

Parasitic Battery Drain

Battery drains overnight. When first started(slow crank), check engine light comes on. After shut off and restart, light goes out. Mechanic says there is a voltage problem. I replaced battery,starter,starter relay,fuel pump. Ran well after initial battery and starter replacement for about 3-4 months. Has been an intermittent problem for about 3 years. Any guesses?

1990 Chrysler LeBaron Reviews

This is about an '88 not a '90 LeBaron turbo. It recently indicated no to low oil pressure on the gauge but not on the warning light or dip stick. After a couple of days of no problem driving, it refused to start in an auto parts store parking lot. It has spark but no fuel pressure. A check of the pump relay doesn't show input juice. What do I check and in what sequence?
My car is actually an 89 but the list only goes to 1990. It has over 130,000 miles on it. I bought it new. It is a convertible and I have replaced the top once. The drive train is remarkable, the ride is dependable. It has a 2.5 liter engine with a turbocharger and runs great. Uses no oil but is leaking a little tranny fluid around the axle housings. I will have the struts replaced tomorrow and...
I can;t tell how fast or see the gas level because the light is out on the dish
