Chrysler LeBaron ProblemsParasitic Battery Drain
Battery drains overnight. When first started(slow crank), check engine light comes on. After shut off and restart, light goes out. Mechanic says there is a voltage problem. I replaced battery,starter,starter relay,fuel pump. Ran well after initial battery and starter replacement for about 3-4 months. Has been an intermittent problem for about 3 years. Any guesses?
A noise may develop from the rear brakes. This is most noticeable when the brakes are applied after the vehicle as set for several hours. Our technicians tell us the repair can involve replacing the rear rotors and brake pads with a revised set.
Automatic transmissions can exhibit a variety of shifting and noise concerns due to failure of internal parts. Our technicians tell us that a complete inspection of all internal parts should be performed if the transmission is disassembled for overhaul. Numerous updated part are available for this transmission.
Chrysler LeBaron QuestionsI had an engine put in my 1989 lebaron. It still surges and I'm out of options (1 answer)
The car was made in California, but the guy put in a non-California engine. I put new spark plugs, hoses, filters, and everything else I could touch on it. It surges on acceleration, only going up to 20rpm
left work it started just fine got hone went to leave nothing dash lights come on unless you take something to the starter an it will start then
This has occurred several times during the last month. The starter motor is relatively new; less than 2 years old.
The car has started every time this has happened. When I try it again, starts normal.
Chrysler LeBaron RecallsHood Opens While Driving
The secondary hood latch may not secure the hood properly when closed, and could allow the hood to open unexpectedly while driving. Dealers will adjust the secondary hood latch to allow the latch assembly to properly engage when the hood is closed free of charge to resolve the concern.
The inside door handle will open locked doors. The owners manual is printed in error, indicating that a locked door will not open until the lock knob is opened first. Chrysler notified and corrected owners manuals in 1992 to resolve this concern.
The front seat belts may not buckle and latch securely. Dealers will replace defective buckles free of charge to resolve the concern.
