Question about 1990 Chrysler LeBaron

Convertible top's motor is out, is there another way to get it up?

I have a 1990 Chrysler Lebaron. Today my brother drove it around with the top down and when he went to put it back up, nothing happened. I assume it is the motor, but until I can get it to a dealership, is there a way to manually get the top up? If so, how?

The above answer is wrong in one detail, there is no arm to disconnect.
The top is raised and lowered by hydrolic pressure, the elec. motor only drives the pump in one direction or the other.

The top can be raised and lowered manually without disconnecting anything. Just remember that you are fighting against hydrolic pressure as you do this, so you just need to push or pull firmly and steadily until it is up or down.

You will have to find out where the motor is and disconnect the arm or mechanism on the motor and then you will be able to pull it up manually also just check the fuse for the top motor if you havent already hope that helps.

1990 chrysler convertible quit while driving. Checked for gas flow, good checked for spark from coil, none. Replaced coil, still no spark, is there an ignition fuse that could cause the problem?

I am assuming this is the Lebaron model and you have the 2.5 or 3.0 engine, right ?
Do you have power going to the coil, and a ground signal coming from the distributor ? Did you check the asd relay ?

I need to determine if a gas tank off of a Spirit will interchange with the tank from a 1990 Chrysler Lebarron convertible

The Lebaron, depending on which model has either a 14 or 16 gallon tank. A 1990 Spirit gas tank has only a 16 gallon tank. If your Lebaron has a 16 gallon tank it is exactly the same part.

We added fluid to the pump on my 1990 lebaron

If you hear clicking, the fuse is good.
You probably need a solenoid which is located behind the rear seat near the motor.

Window up and down

if ur buying new, you can only buy the whole assembly....motor and may be able to pick up a motor at a salvage yard, but they are hard to far as getting to the window motor....remove the seat....remove the panel on the side....remove 2 top bolts and 1 lower will have to remove the insulation tape to get to the lower bolt....then you can pull it strait out, disconnecting the wires connected to the bottom of the motor.

The headlight motor on my 1990 lebaron convertible does'nt work.. no power at the motor .. the fuse and everything else is right..what can be the problem .. maybe the body control module ????

The motor is burned out. If you look under the hood in front of the radiator there is an "emergency access panel" that you can lift up and manually open the covers. You'll need to feel around for the gears and such but you can manally open them and they will then stay open until/if you decided to replace the motor.

Hope this helps!
