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 Brian, If you are not getting 12v to the starter's solenoid switch, and yet the starter relay is clicking, then check whether you have 12v on the brown output wire at the relay when it clicks, and
Hi Brian, The starter relay clicking means that the safety switch is good. So if the red wire at the relay (25) has 12v on it, and the relay is good, then when the relay clicks the brown wire should show
Hi Glenn, I agree with beginning by checking the battery cables, not only the clamps, but also the other end of the cables. There are either 2 or 3 wires on the - clamp so check the far ends of those
Hi Glenn, There are no violet/white or purple/white wires associated with the alternator circuits, only red/white. But if you can follow that wire to determine where the other end is attached let me know
Hi Rick, These systems are complicated but fairly well monitored. I suggest that you reconnect purge solenoid and any other part that is not connected. Then disconnect the battery briefly to ideally erase
