Chrysler Concorde Problem Report
Chrysler Concorde Engine Does Not Start and PCM Fault Code Stored
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.
when engine is cold it starts right up. after driving for 45 min or so and turning it off( like stopping for gas) it will not start until engine cools down. have replaced both cam and crank sensors, tuneup and still not starting when hot. - herbf
Im a rural carrier. No hint what-so-ever that something was wrong. Was at the end of my route and it just stalled at a mailbox. Restarted right away, check engine light came on, stalled in mid-drive. Computer read crankshaft sensor...$150. The next day, ran half the route, died again. Computer read cam censor...$110, didn't charge me full for labor. Next day, end of route dies again. Computer read Idle regulator (something like that), and they changed a couple spark plugs...$423. Next day, died again. I have lost 4 days of work in between waiting for it to get fixed. - Visitor
engine will not start when warm. if cold it always starts. if shut off for less than 5 minutes like a gas fillup it always starts if shutoff more than 10 minutes and less than 60 minutes more times than not it will not fire. come back in 2 hours it will start right up. has been in the shop 4 times 800 spent cam sensor replaced 3 times crank sensor replaced once and some reprograming done and it still does it at least once a week - Visitor
My concorde lxi with the 3.5 engine has problems starting. The defect was with the camshaft sensor. Should I relplace the crankshaft sensor along with camshaft sensor? - kscates
cam sensor problem - Visitor
Hard starting at times. At first I thought it was bad fuel or plugged fuel. Had the pump pressure checked and was OK I changed the cam shaft sensor and crank shaft sensor. Had the same problem. Code kept showing cam shaft sensor. The two sensors I put in were after market parts. I should have known better, replaced the cam shaft sensor with a MOPAR brand cam shaft sensor, and so far the car is starting good...... - Visitor
shut car off to fill up the wouldn't start. After a few minutes it started. It has happened 3 times. - rlgage
Turn over but want start I've put a new fuel pump,sensor, cam and now getting ready to put a new EUC on it I hope it start I'm spent out... - Visitor
Dads car 1st time- camshaft sensor--bucking --replaced under warranty.
2nd. -car went in limp in mode --happened more often- then bucking= then stalling!! mechanic didn't listen--replaced solenoid pac and the had to replace camshaft sensor.
but everyone kept saying it was the transmission!! - Visitor
This would be the 5th cam/crankshaft sensor I have had installed. Just stupid!!! I can't believe Chrysler hasn't found a fix. - Visitor
When cold will start, when gets hot will turns off and will not start again till gets cold again. - Visitor
The car will stall at low speeds or at idle. The car will not start for about thirty minutes after it stalls. Have not gotten the car fixed yet. - Visitor
Car turns off while driving; lost all power (steering, brakes, etc..) Garage replaced crankshaft sensor
Two months later it does the same thing. Garage is running all diagnotics and can't find any problem, and it hasn't happen to them while they have driven it - Visitor
