Question about 1994 Chrysler LHS
This car is driving me nuts.. the car starts and will run with no problems but latley if you dont let the car idle for 20 seconds and you put in drive the car will stall... if you put in reverse there is no issues. the car is in limp mode which i think is the same issue. there are no codes on the key switch other than 12 and 55. i have tried replacing the solinid pack the fluid the filter and checking everthing i can but nothing seems to make any difference. please help

SOURCE: 96 chrysler LHS "limp mode"
OK here is the bad news....yes you propably do need the solenoid pack replaced in the trans,BUT....you can try replacing the input and output sensors on the trans they are about $16.00 each at the dealer,I dont recommend aftermarket sensors.they are pretty easy to get to dont forget to clear the pcm after the repairs.good luck have a good day DB

P1388 = Auto Shutdown (ASD) relay control circuit open or shorted.
The ASD relay routes battery power to the ignition coils, and is energized by the PCM as long as it receives signals from both the crankshaft and camshaft position sensors. If the engine stops turning (stalls), the PCM deengerizes the ASD relay and shuts down the ignition system. The ASD relay also supplies battery voltage to the fuel injectors, so when it shuts down it cuts off both ignition and fuel. At the same time, the PCM also deenergizes the fuel pump relay to turn off the fuel pump. For "limp in" capability, the Chrysler system can run with input from the crankshaft position sensor only. The ASD and fuel pump relays are both located in the Power Distribution Center.

When was the last time you had transmission oil changed and the tranny pan removed and the tranny filter changed? If never, this is your starting point.
The problem with these vans is that the tranny pan is at about a 20 degree angle under the transmission near the driver front tire. The problem with this design is that these pans eventually begin to leak at the lowest point of the pan, and over time you will not notice the ATF loss. Most likely your ATF level or cleanliness/viscosity may be bad.
Don't cry 'TRANSMISSION' until you get your tranny serviced (ATf oilc change, new tranny filter, clean magnets, clean pan, clean tranny).

You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.
