I have a 1990 Chrysler Lebaron Conv. I am unable to open the trunk. The key turns in the lock, but the lock will not allow the trunk to open. By the way, the interior trunk lid release is in the disengage mode, so that option is of no use in trying to open the trunk. I need to open the trunk and get inside. How does one get into the trunk? Is there an easy way?
The trunk lid cannot be opened. The key turns, however the lid will not rise. This is the first time this has ever happened. The interior trunk lid opener is in the disengage position, so that option is of no help to open the trunk. This Lebaron is the conv model. Is there anyone who has an idea of how to open the trunk? Is there an easy way?
I was able o get the top down and now the top won'[t come back up. I cannot even hear the motor. It does nothing. I cannot afford a new motor. Can I spray silicon on it to get it back up? What should I do? Anyone have a used cheap top and/or motor?
while driving, everything shut down and the "check gauges light" on the instrument panel lit. I put the car in park and it started, I drove toward home and it happened again within 1 mile. I started it again and got home when it happened again. I garaged it and read the manual which said this light monitors low oil pressure, high engine temperature, and low voltage. The battery is new and I had only driven 2 miles so the engine could not be hot. Don't know about low oil pressure. I had not driven the car for 2 weeks and seldom use it since it is a second car.
My 1990 Chrysler Lebaron runs good, transmission slipping, has a bent hood and needs a new front clip and windshield. Everything else works fine. Any idea of approximate value? Or should i just scrap it for medaL? (about what should that bring me?)

recently replaced radiator, thermostat, and hoses. first time I needed heater after that, no, or very little temp output from heater. reservoir full. temp gauge goes up only 1/4 or less up from cold. after pulling long hill or mountain, temp gauge reads 1/2 to 3/4, and heater puts out good heat, but quickly drops to cool as engine temp drops. blend doors on heater work good, all functions, including a/c work great, just cannot get engine temp up to normal(1/2) or better, to maintain heat. engine cooling fan only runs when temp goes high, or on a/c or defrost mode. keep mostly on panel output to avoid fan running. no leaks. any suggestions? problem started after changing parts mentioned earlier. even put back old t-stat, didn't help

i changed the fluid in my 1994 chrysler lebaron convertable now it wont shift into reverse worked fine before is there something that might of come loose
I have replaced the starter 3 times now and I still get a clicking sound when I try to start it sometimes? Under no particular conditions does it happen... It will start on the first try for awhile ( days, weeks,) and then out of nowhere it will just click. I've had the battery load tested twice and it reads ok. Eventually it does start, but not before I hit the starter, wiggle wires ect. This is a huge problem for me now because my gf keeps getting stranded. I dont want to waste over $100 bucks on another starter if it is not necessary. HELP! Please!

I received an estimate of 500-850 for a head gasket job on our 1994 Chrysler Lebaron, is that estimate to replace both head gaskets or one?
All under hood components OK, good flow thru heater core. Suspect blend air door. Sounds & feels like it is operating but cannot get into it to check.Vacuum to heat control OK. Fan running OK. Only get small amount of heat to interior.
Will a car run without the 60 amp fuse (under the hood fuse that goes to the charging system)?
My car goes dead when driving. We have replaced 3 alternators and 1 battery. Sometimes it will start within a few minutes and sometimes not. Replaced alternator and battery this weekend. Started great. Drove it once and it was ok. Drove it 2nd time and it was ok. Drove it 3rd time and it started sputtering and died. Sitting here waiting for tow truck to take it back to mechanic. What the heck is going on???
how to set each side on timing belt on 95 chryselr lebaron
I replaced a slightly leaking Valve cover gasket. This stopped that leakage. Oil appears to be leaking around the oil pan (1qt every 2,000 miles). Besides the oil pan gasket is there a timing belt gasket or other gasket that could be culprit?
Power steering fluid leaks out of car in day or two
My convertible stalls for no apparent reason. I will be driving down the road and it just chokes out. Sometimes it starts right back up, other times it takes about 5 minutes to turn over. Other times, it starts up, but when you put your foot on the gas pedal it chokes off. If you let it idle, the car will move but as soon as you step on the gas, it chokes off again. Someone told me a clogged catalytic. Any ideas? The repair shop can't figure it out.
I need a temporary fix so my son can drive home from college so I can fix it. Is it the shifter cable? with help if it is can he put in gear on the transmission?
Installed new starter, starter relay, and battery. Seems to work fine if driven daily. Gauges appear ok. After sitting for a few days the car cranks hard or multiple clicks. When first started, check engine light appears and stays on, but engine seems to run ok. After restarting, engine cranks normal and check engine light disappears.I tried charging the battery a few times and engine cranked normal but a few days later after sitting, back to the same old hard start and check engine light.I had the alternator checked and was ok.Also new fuel pump. Would the check engine light appear if the starting system was faulty? I also disconnected the radio to see if this was draining the battery. Any solutions?
