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.

Hi, I wonder whether the OBD II reader that was used was powerful enough/recent enough to obtain the fault code. According to the 2010 service manual that warning light remaining illuminated is based
Hi Khalid, The most efficient way to solve this is to try for a fault code readout of the powertrain control module. Try first using the ignition switch: "on-off-on-off-on and leave on" doing that in
Hi Shari, I have the '06 Jeep service manual and the horn circuit is a bit complex in that there is a "steering column control module" which among other things "monitors" the horn circuit by being connected
Hi Jen, I can't know whether the mechanic checked for fault codes, but you can so that is why I told you how. If the cam sensor or the pcm is bad a specific fault code will appear for each. The reason
Hi Jen, It is interesting to learn this history but very difficult t draw any conclusion from it. The best thing to try for diagnosis would be the self-diagnostic ability of the powertrain control module
