Chrysler Corporation cars are well-engineered and therefore are repairable by the amateur mechanic given the necessary information. The service manuals too are excellent so I enjoy helping other owners fix their car's problems.
I hope to learn from other owners' experiences so that I can apply this knowledge to my '89 Chrysler LeBaron coupe and help other owners solve their problems economically so they can keep these good older vehicles on the road.
While there are many different domestic models from Chrysler Corp. they have relatively few different engines and there is much mechanical overlap in their chassis designs. The engineering of the electrical systems is very similar as well.
I was raised as a Chrysler 'kid' when my Dad bought a new '41 Dodge and used it to haul our family around Chicago during the war years. I recall one reason he bought a Chrysler product was he thought that Corp. was more non-discriminatory in its employment practices, compared to GM or Ford. He never bought anything but Chrysler and now I have inherited his last car.

The possible causes are: 1. The parking brake lever is not fully released, so check that. 2. The switch for the warning light on the lever may not be being de-activated or is faulty so check for that
