Question about 1990 Chrysler Imperial

1 Answer

My 1990 Chrysler Imperial suddenly developed an odd problem. The brake warning, antilock and airbag lights stay on the digital cluster, the climate control system doesn't come on and the power windows don't work. All of these were fine when I drove it earlier. The only thing I did notice was that before this happened the anti-theft system activated when I locked the car, it's never done that before. Could resetting the computer by discounting the battery fix this (just guessing)?

No, to your reset question. Your ignition switch is not reading the key, Triggering anti- theft mode, and may disable the vehicle. Do not have a lot of trinkets and keys on your key ring. The extra weight hanging from the switch can damage it. I only have 2 keys at the most on my key ring. The 1990 Ignition switch is old. A qualified service tech. should replace it.

SOURCE: Car wont start.

I work at a car lot and have experienced alot of numerous electrical problems with this group of Chrysler's.(Intepid, 300m, LHS, Concorde) I hate to say but usually a BCM has fixed my problems. Regarding the alarm i would look into the switch on the back side of the lock cylinder it was a very common problem in the mid 90's era Chryslers, but all in all sounds almost like a BCM. (Body Contol Module) New they are salty but call the dealer and give them the last eight of the vin and tell them you need the ID number for the bcm they should give it to you then browse your local junk yards. GOOD LUCK!

SOURCE: Anti-theft system seems to have been activated?

Some months ago I began starting the engine of my 2001 Chrysler 300M but turned it of before it really started "was sloppy with the key". The anti-theft system went on for some unknown reason. I disarmed it by disconnecting one of the battery connections under the hood with a wrench. I connected it again, the anti-theft system was off but the battery was dead. Battery was OK after recharging, I have had no trouble since then.

SOURCE: my 1990 chrysler imperial will idle fine but it

Are you one of those people who TOP OFF the tank when filling up?

When the EVAP recovery system soak with few ounce of gasoline......the trap vapor will take few days escape.

EVAP system is design to handle fuel vapor. Few ounce of gasoline can damage the fuel vapor recovery relay and decrease the service live of the recovery lines.

=========

You can accelerate the process by locating the charcoal canister (near the nose of the car and same side as your gas filler door)

MOVE the car to outdoor.

Disconnect the EVAP line and let it air out by itself.

DO NOT introduce any heat source or fan to speed up the process.

Reconnect this EVAP hose and use a small amount of starting fluid at the intake manifold.


Please post more information by Clicking on the comment link.

I will follow up.

Looking for what lights need come on when I turn the key to on in a 2005 Chrysler Town and Country Touring I am thinking of buying. A layout would be nice ...


The main things to look for are your Malfunction Indicator Light (also known as "Check Engine" light), your Antilock Brake warning light and your Airbag warning light. These are the things that will indicate if there are expensive repairs needed.

It might be a good idea to study the Owner's manual a bit so you know what you are looking for and where things are located.

You can download a copy of the Owner's manual for free at the Chrysler web site. Just click the link below and select the year and model.

My airbag light blinks 7 times when i startmy car


{: ) If the airbag light goes off after that 7 blinks (some are 6 or 8), that will be normal. The airbag module will blink the airbag warning light on the cluster while performing self-test during initial start-ups. After the self-test and the airbag module did not detect any fault within the airbag system, it will turn the warning light off. If the airbag warning light continuously blink or stayed lit after the expected elapse time, then there is really a concern and you need to double check the airbag system with a scan tool.

Airbag warning light stays on what does this


THE LIGHT IS INDICATING THAT THE AIR BAG SYSTEM HAS A MALFUNCTION AND WILL NOT DEPLOY IF NEEDED YOU MUST HAVE IT SCANNED FOR THE ERROR CODE AND REPAIR ODDS ARE THAT IT HAS AN OPEN SIR COIL IN THE STEERING COLUMN

Odometer has warning code what is it no bus5


The bus is the communication interface between the many modules or computers on your vehicle. The engine and transmission modules need to be able to communicate with the cluster as well as the airbag, antilock brakes, and body control module to turn certain lights on and make gauges function. "No bus" means the communication line is either open or shorted and the cluster can't determine the inputs from the other modules. Any given module on the vehicle can pull the bus down as well as wiring. It is most likely a module causing the problem. One way to find the culprit is to disconnect each module with the key on until the odometer comes back to life. If it starts and runs, drives and shifts normal, I would do the engine and transmission last. I would start with the ABS and overhead console (if it has one). I hope this helps.
