Question about 1994 Chrysler LeBaron

2 Answers

94 Lebaron 3.0L will not start.

I had my car warming up because of the cold here in Michigan. Unfortunately because of that cold the automatic locks delayed slightly so even after I hit the unlock switch and closed the door, they locked anyway, with the keys in and the car running. After about 20 minutes the car died. I Don't know why. Initially I thought it had just overheated, but I did not see any coolant overflowing and it has a new radiator, thermostat, and plenty of coolant. Sometimes the fan doesn't come on though.
Anyway, I went to start it the next day after I had unlocked the doors with a hangar (which is great fun in the dead of winter btw) but now the car will not start at all. It will crank it just won't start. I can clearly hear the fuel pump come on and it does have gas. I thought maybe a fuel line froze, but it was about 40 degrees today and should have thawed if that were the case. It still won't start.
Besides checking for spark, where should I go from here? Im layed off and really can't afford a tow to the shop. Is there any way to check for computer codes without taking it in somewhere? Other ideas?

    That was very helpful, thanks. Looks like the MAP sensor is dead and my fan control relay is no good. I am no expert but that probably would explain the fan not running all the time, the overheating, and failure to start.

    On a related note though, would a bad MAP sensor prevent the engine from starting? From what im reading, it would cause perhaps surging or roughness while idling, but no indications that it would keep it from starting.

A map sensor can keep you car from starting. But i have the problem of my car surging and running rough. Used to only happen in park but seems to do it even while driving now. But as for your fan not running all the time it could be your fan relay,temperature sensor or a bad ground. Hope this helped. Good luck. mrsgoodroach

    Iwould check for spark next, before buying a map sensor. Bad map sensor shouldn't keep it from running, although I wouldn't rule it out completely. If there is spark, check for fuel at the manifold. Should be a test valve somewhere on the fuel rail. Caution for spraying fuel when releasing the pressure. Remove the fuel filter and pour the fuel in it into a glass container, note the color of the fuel. If it comes out black, change it. Try blowing through the filter the way the fuel flows. Does it seem restricted? You should be able to blow quite freely through it, if not replace it.

Smokes at idle, not while driving.


you have hit the nail on the head ,starting a cold engine and just leaving it to idle takes a while to warm up ,but driving it straight away which is what you should do get the engine warm quicker ,also reduces your carbon footprint.When the engine is cold it burns oil till the correct clearance and tolerances are reached .

We have a 1990 lebaron 56000 miles when it gets cold outside,like35 degrees sometimes the headlights will not go on until after the car is fully warmed up. the hi beams will always work but the headlights...


the old chryslers were very suseptable to dampness esp at 35 deg after car warms up the damp wires would dry off and the problem would go away some time this also affected the ignition and car would not start on damp or rainy days as well

94 Lebaron GTC 2nd gear limp in mode


It has an electical problem. You need to take it to the dealership if you want it diagnosed correctly. It will need to be in limp in, and don't turn the car off as this is clearing the code out of the computer. Leave it running, tell the service advisor your situation and not to turn it off till someone can hook the scan tool to it. This will give them the cause of limp in, and should be able to be resolved after.
