Chrysler Concorde Problems
RepairPal has identified the most common problems with the Chrysler Concorde based on complaints from actual vehicle owners. We'll tell you what the problem is and what it'll take to fix it.
The AC drive belt tensioner bracket can crack and cause the belt to make noise or jump off the pulleys. The AC system may stop working as well. A cracked bracket could damage the cylinder head; it should be replaced.
An loose alternator drive belt may cause a growling noise in the engine area at low speeds (usually when accelerating from a stop). This is often mistaken for catalytic converter failure.
Door weatherstrips mounted on the body tend to shrink with age, leaving gaps that can create wind noise or allow water to leak into the car. Our technicians suggest the door weatherstrips should be replaced to correct these issues.
The instrument cluster may illuminate randomly to its full brightness and/or the fuel gauge may drop to the empty position. Typically the symptoms are infrequent and the instrument cluster returns to normal operation after a few seconds. An update to the body control module (BCM) will fix this problem.
An intermittent problem with static at startup or when the radio is switched to the satellite function can be fixed by replacing the satellite digital audio receiver (SDAR).
