Chrysler LeBaron Problems

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?

Noise from rear brakes

A noise may develop from the rear brakes. This is most noticeable when the brakes are applied after the vehicle as set for several hours. Our technicians tell us the repair can involve replacing the rear rotors and brake pads with a revised set.

Chrysler LeBaron Recalls

Hood Opens While Driving

The secondary hood latch may not secure the hood properly when closed, and could allow the hood to open unexpectedly while driving. Dealers will adjust the secondary hood latch to allow the latch assembly to properly engage when the hood is closed free of charge to resolve the concern.

Owner's Manual Door Lock Operation Information In Error

The inside door handle will open locked doors. The owners manual is printed in error, indicating that a locked door will not open until the lock knob is opened first. Chrysler notified and corrected owners manuals in 1992 to resolve this concern.

Front Seat Belt Latch Sticks And Fails To Secure Belt

The front seat belts may not buckle and latch securely. Dealers will replace defective buckles free of charge to resolve the concern.

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?
Is it possible to adapt the switching moment of the automatic gear box to allow the engine speed less.
i have a 1993 with over 200,000 miles. Everything is good except the "dome" lights don't work and the big issue - after we drive it for 40 minutes or so when it is near 80 degrees - the engine begins to cut out until it just quits. It seems to be a fuel issue but after you let it sit for about 20 minutes it starts up and is fine for awhile. I took it to the garage - didn't act up for them. ...
