1989 chrysler tc by mazerati runs and drives

1989 chrysler tc by mazerati runs and drives fine but would shut off occasionally and then restart right away one day it was parked in garage and never restarted. i checked for spark and there was none. i checked for power to the positive side of the coil and nothing. i ran a jump wire from battery to coil and fuel pump came on and i started the car and it ran great. Is there a fuseable link somewhere for the coil/ fuelpump??

    I am putting this as a clarification request so that it doesn't remove your question, plus, I don't think this would be a solution but maybe a direction to go in. I'm no expert & don't know about your model car but years ago I had an '83 camaro that did the same thing, but mainly it was when it rained or was damp; it was caused by water/dampness under the distributor cap (sometimes, I even had to take a blow dryer to it!) I replaced the dist. cap and it was smooth sailing (or running!) from then on. Hope this helps & you don't think me stupid for suggesting this!

SOURCE: 1992 Chrysler LeBaron 3.0 L.

the owner probably rerouted the fuel line because like my 92 chrysler lebaron v6 3.0 the fuel lines keep seeming to come off and the clamps always break. I have replaced the clamps 5 times in a month and replaced filters 2 times in 2 months. The only thing i could think of is that your fuel is being cut off possibly because there is no filter to clean all the junk out. Try putting a fuel filter on and see if that will work

Testimonial: "I replaced the starter. This job is quite substantial. Also found the nut connecting the cable to the starter coil was not tight. I think it is fixed."

SOURCE: 1997 Cirrus battery went dead. The car ran fine

These cars are known for having engine related electrical problems that can be difficult to track down. One dead sensor is sufficient to prevent start up .

It is possible that your problem had nothing to do with the jump start or battery replacement.

Without a full diagnosis anyone not able to test the vehicle will be guessing.

One thing I would do is to check your fuse panels for all engine related fuses such as fuel pump, ignition and fuel injection to ensure these fuses are sound.
Check all visible wiring carefully including your battery connections. Carefully disconnect and then re-connect the battery at both terminals.

Your best option is to have the car towed to a reputable repairer that is familiar with these cars so he can run a full check and isolate the problem.

Whether you have blown something in the course of jump starting the car is unknown.

In future, when jump starting these older vehicles always turn the headlights on and do not turn them off again whilst the vehicle is running until after the spare battery used for the jump start has been fully disconnected. Everything else should be off.

You may wanna try replacing the soleniod pack mounted on the front of the transmission.U may have to purchase it at a local dealer or napa.If that does not repair your issue you may have to install a used transmission.

Occasionally my 99 Sable won't restart till after 3/4 hour wait


There is a condition called thermal breakdown in ignition parts( ie: spark control modules). Pretty common really in older stuff. Why does it happen only after shutdown? because of a condition called heat soak. underhood temps rise higher than ever right after shutdown. Your ignition module is mounted to the side of the distributor. If practical when the problem happens pour cold water on the module give it one minute and see if it starts(wont damage it) if it starts right up you proved it bad. Hope I helped Thanks
