Question about 1993 Chrysler Lebaron

1 Answer

Wipers won't turn off

'93 Lebaron.During a heavy rain got home windsheiled wipers would not stop, All speeds work fine. Next day I decided to disconnect battery which could do with new cable connectors. Got car to start but wipers still won't stop. Went 4 blcoks to daughters house turned off car but heard a clicking on passenger side that seemed to coincide with wiper blade swipe. Turned off car when I left 2hrs later battery was completely dead. Got a jump that took 10 minutes approx to take. Car shut off if foot is off the gas. Finally able to remove foot so I let it idle for approx 10-15 mins. wiper still not stopped. Drove around the corner car shut down, no power steering, no power brakes. Charge still held because it started right up when I turned the ignition. Made it home by keeping my foot on the gas. Second my foot is off the gas it turns off. I diconnected the battery cable so not to drain. Any suggestions ? 78k , no problems like this after I got new battery and alternator Feb 2013.

The wiper motor is defective and needs to be replaced. Inside the wiper motor is a "Park Switch". When you turn the wipers off, the park switch sends a signal to shut the wipers off. If the park switch fails to operate then the wipers will continue to run, unless the ignition key is turned off. You will also need to inspect and test the charging system. Where you had no issue before the rain, you may only need to charge the battery. After the battery is charged it should be load tested, to be sure that it is fine. Also test the alternator and make sure that it is charging correctly (@14volts). If you need more information please write back. Good luck.

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: 3002 Pt Cruiser GT -

It sounds like a sensor is intermittantly loosing the data stream. Since the engine light came on, I would go to a reputable shop and have them check for codes. Many auto parts stores will do this as well and sometimes for free. Can't beet free. If I were to guess I would say something like the camshaft postion sensor is going bad, Or the crankshaft postion sensor, Or something like that. The code will tell which one it is.

Good luck, and if you have any further questions please....ask!

I have a 1999 honda civic headlights are fine but turn signals and break lights can barely be seen during the day


I think I need more details here. Is there a possible issue with the plastic lenses being sun damaged? How old are the battery and alternator? It's possible there is a charging system problem and the alternator is not putting out enough current to the bulbs. Do the wipers work at an adequate speed when it is raining hard? When the alternator starts to fail the wipers will start to slow down.

Winshield wipers stop and go on their own


Yes, it could be the switch, a worn switch is capable of acting like that. Given its age, it's a good possibility. One thing better than an educated guess is a wiring diagram and a voltmeter and a chance to catch it when it's happening-but that is 3 things, simultaneously.

Your last sentence got cut off. I believe I would try a new or different switch.

Wipers only work sometimes


check that you do not have the wiper control set on delay . It is the first stop on the arm and on some cars it is adjustable by turning the knob on the lever to give different delays according to the rain conditions. The next stop down will be continuous wipes at low speed and the last stop will be flat out speed of the wipers.

1992 Plymouth Voyager won't start after it rains


I don't know if this is the same, but I used to have a 87 Chrysler LeBaron. It ran great until you washed it or it started raining. Then it would die and it wouldn't start until 2 or 3 days later after it dried out. I took it to the shop several times, they always said it was the fuel pump. It turned out to be the wiring that runs next to the battery, had the insulation eaten away from battery acid over the years. I wrapped the wiring next to the battery in a piece of plastic and I never had another problem with it. Sounds cheesy I know, but it was ironic that several shops looked at it and couldn't figure it out. As far as white smoke that might be a differant problem.
