Question about 2001 Chrysler Concorde

2 Answers

Steering wheel was turned in process to locate battery prior to knowing that positive and negative prongs where located under the hood for more convient jump start. after recieving an intional charge and attempting to start car, the ignition refused to turn forward and let the car start. however, the key was able to be turned backwards, so that the stero and luxurie lights would come on. so we are stumped as to if whether or not we need to reset the computer or if we are facing a differnt problem because aside from the steering weel being turned prior to attempted ignition it now remains locked along with the problem of a locked ignition.

Pull the wheel hard in the direction you had turned it when it locked, that should free the lock mechanism enough to turn the key. What's happened is that the wheel trying to go back to center had jammed the locking mechanism. Remember to turn the key while you're turning the wheel.

The ignition key and lock cylinder operate a gear and lever type of mechanism within the steering column. If the gear jumps out by one tooth, or has been assembled incorrectly, it will cause the steering wheel to remain locked and the push rod that activates the ignition switch (located near the bottom of the column) will not function correctly. This can be very tricky to solve, and should be serviced by an experienced technician.

Battery goes dead when towing long trips in the acc. position to keep the steering wheel unlocked where is the fuse located


All of the fuses are located under the hood, below the air inlet tube that connects the air filter housing to the throttle body, however it may just be easier to disconnect the battery when towing.

Where is the battery locate in a 2006 sebring?


The battery is located in a compartment that is accessed through the drivers side wheel well liner, there is an access panel, it can be done by turning the wheel to the right as far as possible, but just removing the wheel is easier for me. Here are a set of instructions I used.

The battery is accessible without removing the left front wheel and tire assembly..

Verify that the ignition switch and all accessories are OFF.
Turn the steering wheel to the full left position.
Disconnect and isolate the negative battery cable remote terminal from the remote battery post.

Remove battery splash shield. Refer to the Body section of the service manual for the procedure.
Disconnect the heater blanket cord, if equipped.
Remove the short bolt from the battery hold down and remove the hold down (Battery Location).
Disconnect the negative and positive battery cables from the battery.
Slide the battery toward rear of vehicle and lift out of the battery tray.

Kia Sorento 2004 air bag light on


When the airbag light (SRS) is on or blinks it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the system, the most common problem that turns the light on is a break in the connection to the steering wheel mounted airbag, this is due to a rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel that connects the airbag to the wiring harness and the diagnostic monitor, the part is called the clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the steering wheel while maintaining a mechanical connection to the airgag mounted on the steering wheel, to replace this part you must disarm the airbag system and remove the steering wheel, this requires a special steering wheel puller tool and that you disarm the airbag system before you start the work, to do this disconnect the battery negative cable for 1/2 hour prior.

No Horn


first look for your fuse panel, probably under dash, or under hood, then check horn fuse...this MIGHT work. If not locate your horn under the hood, probably in front of the radiator. if you have a volt ohm meter, just 10 dollars or so at home depot or radio shack, set it on ohms, put one lead on the negative of your battery, the other on one of the horn connections, if it shows zero (a continuity reading) that is the negative ground side of your horn then run one voltmeter lead directly from the negative battery terminal, to the negative horn connection, and have someone try the horn. If it works, great. if it doesnt take the other lead from the positive battery terminal, leaving the negaitve one in place, putting the other end of the positive on the other positive terminal of your horn. if it works, your horn is ok.

that probably means a blown fuse, or more trouble, a bad worn connection under your steering wheel, which means pulling the steering wheel and checking to see if the brass or bronze horn ring is making good contact with the steering wheel connection brass bump, or if it worn out. i had to go to dealer to get a replacement, was about $12 for a toyota, and they do wear out.

good luck

NO TURN SIGNAL, NO POWER WINDOWS suspect blown fuse battery was jumped of just prior to problem and cable was crossed in the process.


If everything else is working properly, I think you are on the right track with the fuse. On MOST cars the fuse box is under the dashboard but check your owners manual for the location. A diagram is usually on the inside of the cover or the sockets are marked.

LOCTION OF THE BATTERY


I know of the remote battery under hood on the left side, I have located the positive cable connection, and the manual states the negative cable connection is near the power steering pump.

But my question/problem is I need a specific picture of what the the negative cable connection looks like can you provide me a visual on this?
