1991 Dodge Dynasty Problem Reports
Report A Problem
The alternator belt
may develop a chirping or snapping noise over time due to pulley misalignment. There is a revised alternator bracket to address this concern. If there is still an issue after the bracket has been replaced washers can be used to align the alternator
A slight creaking coming from the steering column
while turning may be caused by the upper half of the steering column shroud. Our technicians tell us that removing some of the material from the upper shroud will eliminate the noise.
A poor connection at the rear load leveling or air suspension relay can cause the rear of the vehicle to sag intermittently. Our technicians tell us that the connector can be secured at the relay using a tie strap.
The transmission has numerous problems; symptoms can range from shuddering to completely dying. The majority of the TSBs (service bulletins) require an overhaul of the transmission. Updated internal parts are available.
The brake pedal may not return to its fully released position causing the brake lights to stay on. If no brake pedal return spring is in stalled there is a spring kit available. If the brake pedal return spring does not correct the problem the actuator piston should be replaced.
The retainers on the horizontal wood door trim tend to break after repeated door slamming. Our technicians tell us that the trim can be secured by using silicone adhesive.
Odors from the AC (HVAC) system may be caused by microbial growth on the AC evaporator. Our technicians recommend to keep the AC inlet free of leaves and debris and treating the evaporator and housing using a disinfectant spray.
A faulty transmission control module may fail causing the engine to stall after starting or the transmission to become stuck in 2nd gear.
The ABS light
may illuminate due to poor electrical connections at the ABS system and warning lamp relays. Updated wire harness kits are available to make the necessary repairs.
