Chrysler states they don't know if they willl pay for this problem. I need my car to get to work, but I'm afraid of it, and I just don't have the extra money to have it checked and repaired! If the starter doesn't engage an spin the engine this would be a no crank no start condition. Then, the contact had to pull over to the side of the road and wait for the car to start again. Happens on several occasions, without regard to gas level or speed. The Ignition problem The contact owns a 1997 Chrysler Concorde. Also the front window and power mirror were inoperative, the dealer found a bad window motor.
I've had it with this car and I can't deal with this any more. This car should have been deemed recalled under the lemon law. The vehicle speed would increase to 5000 rpms, the engine and oil light also illuminated on the instrument panel. We later found out that he lied. I just bought the car 1 year ago and Chrysler has told me since the car is older than three years they are not liable. Take the time to trace and clean all relays.
I have had the timing checked, but that is not my problem. Charge, test or replace battery. I'm very puzzled as to why the car will run fine after starting. The number one most common problem is related to the vehicle's electrical system 25 problems. Having to stand up and take responsibility for their defective engine would totally bankrupt them.
Less time with family and a car with 72,000 miles that we can't drive!!! This car has sputtered, jerked, spewed black smoke, ran so rough that we thought it would shake apart. This may possibly account for the 3-4 min delay. Sounds like a weak vehicle battery, even though it's at a full charge. Oct 31, 2012 Define - It attempts to turn over but won't catch and run???? This car has sputtered, jerked, spewed black smoke, ran so rough that we thought it would shake apart. I also have had very many troubles with my car stalling while driving at various speeds and conditions. Now, my car is in the dealership due to smoke smell burning wires and a computer and electrical issue.
The mechanic informed the consumer that the problem could not be determined at this time. The contact stated that there was no indication before the engine lost power. The heater stopped working intermittently which lead to a build up of heat in the engine cabin, which in turn lead to a build up of sludge. We have had to pull over to the side of the road so many times because the car cut off, that is if it would make it to the side of the road. In the month of may 2003, I received a recall notice about the driver's seat bolt being defective, which may break causing the seat to suddenly recline.
The contact owns a 2004 Chrysler Concorde limited edition. It seems that this is a big problem with several models that Chrysler has produced. They have put the diagnostics machine on it so many times and the readings are always false according to them, because if it were a true reading the car wouldn't be running at all. The contact took the car back to the dealer. Also while changing the road lane if you give more gas then the gear knocks and then runs smoothly.
My husband's job is in the city which is a 30 - 45 minute commute. Replacing the sensor fixed that problem. And the air conditioner was blowing out hot air. Ensure you battery is within the warranty period. Has happened while driving on freeway, as well as stop and go traffic. We have had to pull over to the side of the road so many times because the car cut off, that is if it would make it to the side of the road. Interior Front bucket seats are standard in all models.
As of December 10, 2007, the mechanic had not repaired the vehicle. The contact will check with the manufacturer for assistance. We can not afford a new engine let alone a rebuilt engine. The contact stated that the vehicle would stall while driving and jerk when shifting into the next gear. Temperature in the engine bay actually rises once the engine stops due to the lack of airflow.
The dealer replaced the cam sensor. I can only pray that something can be done about these problems before someone is injured or god forbid even killed!!! A local mechanic rebuilt the transmission; however, the failure recurred. The cruise control stopped working right before the vehicle shut off. This has been happening since day one and it's dangerous. I did check the wiring to the camshaft position sensor as someone suggested and don't see any problem. I put it in the shop and they said it was because gas cap was loose.
