Chrysler LeBaron ProblemsEngine Start and Stall and/or Transmission Stuck in Second Gear
Vehicles may develop a start and die out condition or a transmission that defaults to second gear. Our technicians tell us that the transmission control module (TCM) may be at fault and require replacement. If the TCM is replaced the pinion factor should be reset and the quick learn procedure performed.
The anti-lock brake (ABS) warning lamp may illuminate with "Modulator Fault" indicated by a scan tool. This would indicate a electrical fault, commonly caused by a faulty connection. ABS connectors should be inspected for problems if this situation occurs.
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?
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.
