When a no start condition is caused by a faulty camshaft or crankshaft sensor, related fault codes stored in the powertrain control module (PCM) should not be trusted. Our technicians tell us that under certain conditions a fault code can be stored for the "good" sensor. Care should be taken to properly diagnose this condition.

    Car will die while driving without warning. Just loss of power. After a few minutes car will start back up and you can continue driving. No check engine light. No smells. No noises. It may be a couple days before it happens again, but you never know when it is going to happen.

    THIS 2001 CHRYSLER LHS HAS BEEN NOTHING BUT TROUBLE and PROBLEMS FOR ME IN THE PAST 2 of 3 YEARS OF OWNERSHIP!!!!
    I FOUND OUT AFTER THE FACT, THAT I WAS RIPPED OFF BY A CAR DEALER IN MYRTLE BEACH, SC. FOR $5,0000 AT A FINAL FINANING OF $7,000 AND I'M STILL PAYING FOR THIS PIECE OF CRAP!!!!! I'M DISABLED AND THIS IS ALL I CAN AFFORD!!!!!!
    I bought my 2001 Chrysler LHS used. in 2011. At the time, it had approximately 85K mileage. At approximately 86K miles, The starting problem began. Its puzzling to me that this is an intermittent problem! The car won't start and just "clicks" as if a solenoid is bad! After trying approx. 10 to 20 times of staring, the car will finally start. I have an "INNOVA 3100a CAN OBD2 code reader. It will give me a "PCM CODE ERROR". I will erase the code(s) and the engine seems to be okay, but it does not solve the issue of failing to start! This vehicle is falling apart on me! Now there is a horrible "Rattle" in the right front. It sounds like a strut, control arm or bushing is worn badly!

    VERY FRUSTRATED
