Question about 1993 Chrysler Lebaron

1 Answer

93 lebaron died while running, now clicks when being jumped.

Every now and then my 93 lebaron would make a funny clicking noise when turning the key, sounded like it wasn't getting enough juice to start. I would turn it a couple more times and it would eventually start. This morning it did same thing, would just click, so I put a battery charger on and tried again, it would just click real fast when turning the key, tried a couple more times and just clicking, took charger off and tried starting again and it fired up. I let it warm up and I started driving, about 1/4 mile down the road the car completely died, engine and all electrionics died, when trying to restart nothing will happen. Don't think it the alternator or the starter, i tested battery and still had a lot of juice and the starter is still clicking, been told might be a relay fuse, don't know where they are in the car, could someone please help thanks Todd

From what you describe, my guess is that eventually you will replace the starter

SOURCE: Intermittently have to use charger to start.

the most common cause of this by far is lights left on by defective switchs, these include the map lights in the visors, the glove box light due to a defective switch, the trunk light and the hood light if equipped, check it at night and look for a faint glow, the other much less common cause is the alternator has a defective diode and allows a small current to pass to ground drawing the battery down..

SOURCE: chyrsler grand voyager wont start just clicks HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What do you mean by bump started? The lights and radio can work, but the battery may be too weak to crank the engine over. The best thing to do would be to drive it to a parts store, where most offer free check of battery and charging system (if you can drive it. If not, 1st remove battery and bring in for testing). The click you hear is classic low battery symptom, although it can be other things. So, 1st get the free test, and post results back here. How old is the battery? (and answer 2 questions!) Thanks

SOURCE: started with fog lights on cars off.got a jump cause the battery was dead. just makes clicking sound from starter.

seems your battery has already been discharged by the fog lamp! recharge or buy a new one, but you should fix first the fog lamp before hooking your battery! check for stuck -up relay!

SOURCE: 2005 chrysler Town&Country clicks when attempting to start

If the click is one click then that points to the starter. Make sure the battery connections are tight. If it clicks like a machine gun then it is either the battery or a bad connection. Good battery voltage is 12.6 or more and 13.6 when running. I don't know tour skill level of electricity.

Whats the battery voltage when you turn the key on or try to crank it? Have you checked to make sure the terminals are clean?

An almost dead battery will still read 12 volts until there is a load on it. Then you will see the voltage drop to almost nothing. Checking the battery voltage with the key on or with the headlights on will give you a better picture of the health of the battery. Since it starts and runs with a jump I would say a new batter is in your future.

1990 Montero. Won't start on its own. Will start with jump. Has power until I turn key. Then click noise and everything dies. Have checked wires. Any ideas?


Your battery is weak or you need to clean and tighten your cables. If it can be jumped the system is not getting power flow correctly.

You should have two sources of power, a ground from the computer, and the circuit going to the pump.
Do you have both sources of power when the key switch is turned to start ?

93 nissan altima died on the road, won't turn


If it just up and died on the road and will not turn over now even with a jump it almost sounds like you engine may have locked up on you. But it is hard to tell without actually seeing the car. For your sake I do hope it is a different problem. I would like to help you out more. Can you be more specific as to what the car did when it quit on you? Did it make any sounds or anything? Did it quit when you where actually driving or were you sitting some place at an idle? I look forward to hearing from you.

your battery or charging system is faulty. Jump start the car and turn on EVERYTHING! Then disconnect the negative side of your battery-if the car doesnt stall or sputter its your battery-if it does its your alternator.

If you have a new battery and it keeps going dead, then either you have a bad battery or the alternator is not charging properly. Altenator not charging could be either a bad alternator, loose belt, or bad wiring coming from alternator.

My 1995 chrysler lebaron starts and dies. runs great on eather but wont squirt gas into the motor. fuel pump works great injectors open when key is on and then close and wont reopen.


You might also want to check to see if you vehicle has an anti theft function i have the 95 lebaron and if the anti theft is activated it starts runs for a few second and dies. if battey dies or is replaced i have to go to the passenger door and put in the key and turn it 4-5 times then it starts and runs so try this first.

Wont start funny clicking sound when i turn the key ???


Hi!!

The clicking you are hearing, is the sound of a weak battery, Jump start the vehicle and take it to an AutoZone for a Charging System check.

Good Luck!!
