There is a "technical service bulletin" (TSB) out on that trouble .. its "TSB# 08-035-05 june of 05"

there are many other recalls and TSBs as well for that model .. you can see them listed at the url below .. however this site wants money to see the actual bulletins .. the listing is free ..
you can probably get the bulletin information from any local chrysler dealer if you give them the TSB number above ..

98.3hombre battery went dead after a jump it wont start

double posted, why?
did i guess right?
that means ,
check all fuses first. even the alt fuse (large)
1-battery bad? #1 top failure all cars.
2-Charge system bad. (is the charge/ batt warn lamp glowing when running car, bingo.????

3-or phantom drains. (if no crank just after stall then it not this) if drains while sleeping yes.

the tests are easy, a dirt cheap voltmeter
13.3v to 15v running is good charge system.
if 12v and falling not.

if the battery is bad, the charge system can shut down, so, the best practice is to try a know
good battery out of 2nd car, do you have battery to barrow, this is TOP CHOICE< not thinner wallet.

if the good battery fails then the charge system is failing (note I said system and not a part)
or the belt missing or slipping to the alternator.

btw the 4.3L PCM runs the alternator
PCM is engine brain.
btww, same true 2.2l engine.
the regulator is in the PCM.

so is the charge/bat lamp in cluster
on key on, lamp test
the jump start it , it runs
does the charge./batt.lamp go out.
id be all over that lamp, costs nothing to look.

How do I get my windows to work window won't go up or down

The car power window operates with a 12 volt motor which turns clockwise or anti clockwise to push up or pull down the glass. Your battery cannot be dead, if it is, you will not be able to start the car because the power to turn the motor comes from this main battery. To isolate the problem, are all the windows not working or just one?. Have the engine running and test each wind at a time. If all are not working, most likely is the fuse for the power windows. If only one window is not working, then it is either the motor is faulty or the cable has snapped. Some cars do not use cable for their front doors, then in this case it will be the motor.
It is adviceable to have your engine running each time you want to wind up your windows as it requires more power. Opening windows require less power. Perform this tests first and get back to me if you still have problem.

Wont start and makes clicking sound

Dead battery. Get a jump start, check as to why it went dead. Bring it to autozone, they will check it for free. You may also have a bad alternator.

Have 03 audi a4 conv parked car for a couple of months battery went dead so replaced and now power windows wont work interior lits staus on

Do the power windows not work at all or only the auto up down feature? If it's just the latter, try holding the switch until the window goes all the way up- then release and hold up again immediately for 2 seconds, this resets operation.

If they don't work at all, check your fuse panel for any blown fuses.

I have a Chevrolet Cobalt 2007, I recently changed the battery Dec. 8 and it was fine. New Years Eve, I went to the store and when I came out it was dead. The lights would turn on and so would my ac, but...

It sounds like the alternator is weak or has gone bad, if you can jump start it take it to your local auto parts store and have them test alt/charging system. Lights & fans don't draw that much power but windows and locks require more. Sounds like you've been running on battery power from 12/8

Soft top wont open

Many's the most common:
1. the two latches on either side of your real shelf (Above the trunk (Boot) space. Unlatch and re-latch them firmly.
2. Make sure the rear shelf id down firmly Sometimes those switches don't engage.
3. (This one got me) If you had a dead battery or had battery disconnected for any reason, cycle all the windows up and down a couple of times then try the top.

Car won't start. But i know battery is good

you have a red top thats the problem
read the lit on the battery they are not designed for your uses

if you want a battery that can take abuse put in a deep cycle or a reg led acid but the sealed gell cells are not designed for under hood use in the long term look at the charging cycle required on the owners manule it it self is a pain in the ***
