Hi
they have little pin switches on the inside of the door jar's check all these are pushing in and then back out when the door is open, they stick internally sometimes and you have to wd-40 them to free them up.

Also is the door light the same one for the boot? or is that another light? if it is a shared light for both then check the boot lid underside and the small panel on the bottom where your knees would be ensure these are all clean and have a good contact.

If no joy please get back to me.

Do i have an immobiliser problem?


Take a close look at those two lights. If one is a "check engine" light the car should be scanned. Autozone, Advance, and Oreilys do it free.

Some cars have switches on brake pedal levers or clutch levers which must be coordinated or timed to INTERLOCK with the starter. Also gearshift must be aligned similarily, such that all switches must be lined up for starter to work.

If lower switches are knocked out of position by feet, then it can cause starting problems.

Check your Battery voltage. Some antitheft are very sensitive to low voltage and the immobilizer will kick in.

Ive got a 98 concord no dash lights and wont shift from first ,Ive replaced transmission control module 6 times chrysler dealership said they cant fix can you help


Call the service department and ask them if they know if there is a speed sensor available for the car and where it is located (internally or externally) this may be the problem or the secondary shift solenoid is bad. If you have not gotten any progrees from these strategies I would bring the car to an electrical diagnostic shop if they can trace the problem with the dash lights they may fix the transmission shift issue as well.
