Question about 1994 Dodge Spirit

94 Dodge Spirit electrical problems

I have one automatic seatbelt in my car. A couple of months ago it started freaking out. It would lock randomly so people couldn't get out of the car. It would start switching positions without a trigger (door wouldn't be open). I noticed if I unlatched it, it would stop. A sensor problem was suggested to me, but I noticed there were no problems with the dome light or the light that tells me the seatbelt is not attached. I was just ignoring the problem until the other day. All of a sudden my radio stopped working. When I turned on the car the radio was completely dead. At first I thought it was just a fuse or the radio burned out. Then, the clock on the radio turned on while I was driving. I started playing with the radio and then it started playing a local station. Less than a minute later, the station switched to static. I tried turning it down and off, but the control had no effect. It has been switching through these phases. The control buttons will light up. The odd thing though is last night the display started having 5 red lines in it. Several people have suggested shorts in the wiring, but I'm a little worried because the problems seem to be spreading in my electrical system.

Sounds like two separate problems. The radio is a self contained unit and not connected to the seatbelt in any way. Mine did the same thing just before it died, not worth fixing just replace it. Seatbelt sounds like a bad sensor wire connection on the buckle. Try replacing the buckle/switch/wire. The clue is that it doesn't misbehave when unbuckled which seems to indicate intermittent contact when buckled.

SOURCE: Seatbelt Unlatches

This sounds like something broken in the latch. Do yourself a favor. Before it comes unlatched in an accident, go to your local dealer and get a replacement latch ASAP. That is one device in a car you shouldn't ever have to question. If it doesn't work right, replace it.

I was driving and went to turn and the car cut off. I coasted it to a safe spot and waited. Tried to start the car up and it turns over but doesn't start. It sounds like it just not getting enough gas....

could also be a crank sensor or a ignition module as this is a older vehicle it will have a ignition module but where to look first i cannot say as never seen this model here in spain ,also check for a wiring connector somewhere on the vehicle under the bonnet

Which light is on ? The ABS light or regular Brake light?
If ABS light is on, your ABS is currently not working and it might be an electrical problem.
If the regular brake light is on something is wrong with the hydralics in the brake system. Either way bring it in ASAP. Good luck

1994 Dodge Spirit Automatic Transaxle

Yes the computer uses TPS (throttle position sensor) and VSS (vehicle speed sensor) sensors information as well as fluid temp and other factors to determine shift points based on the info stored in the PROM (memory) IC chip, if it is not shifting then you either have a poor connection at the trans case electrical connector or a sticking shift solenoid inside the trans, I would pull the trans connector off and make sure it is clean and properly installed, look for a broken connector retainer as well, this is very common and can cause a loss of signal from the PCM (power train control module) module to the transmission shift solenoids. Most likely the 3rd gear shift solenoid is sticking off from sitting so long, had this happen on my truck, cleared itself.
