#1149 of 1409 Update on 1999 LHS Transmission
Mar 04, 2004 (9:38 am)
Thanks to all who posted follow ups. The 1999 LHS is covered only 3 years, 36.000 miles. No other warranty coverage. I believe the 7/70 warranty started in 2000 LHS models. I had the trans fixed at my independent auto shop. He used 3 Mopar parts for a cost of about $400. All other parts were 3rd party. Chrysler said they would refund cost of the 3 Mopar parts he used as a 'GOOD FAITH' gesture, even though car was out of warranty. My mechanic purchased Mopar parts from the trans shop he deals with. Now Chrysler will not refund parts because he did not purchase DIRECTLY from Chrylser. The Chry rep went so far as to say the parts are either used Mopar parts or not Mopar parts at all. Then the rep said I should have bought the $1500 extended warranty. So BEWARE. Some GOOD FAITH gesture huh!!
#1152 of 1409 White Walls On an LHS?

Has anyone put white walls on their LHS? Any pictures? I've been looking but I haven't seen a single LHS, 300M or Concorde with white walls... I'm trying to imagine how it would look.
#1153 of 1409 '00 LHS not start
May 14, 2004 (6:44 am)
I bought a used 2000 LHS in 2002. I have 42,000 mi on it to date. Recently, when I put the key in the ignition and turn it - nothing happens, not a sound. Sometimes I have to turn the key back and forth several times before it will start. Othertimes i turn it and hold it until it cranks over and starts Takes several agonizing seconds. It seems electrical to me, starter, ignition, the actual switch itself or the security system. ???? Any ideas.

I have a 1997 LHS. Same problem for 4 months. Just fixed it tonight after changing the starter solenoid and replacing relays (with no luck and based on the recommendation of the local dealer). I found the problem. It is the ignition switch inside of the steering column. I used the Haynes manual to follow the schematic. I then pulled the harness and jumped the red and yellow wire, turned over immediately everytime. Replaced the wiring harness and had to wait. If I turn the key and push up on the ignition switch it starts everytime, right away.

I had the same problem with my '94 New Yorker, essentially the same car as the LHS. The solution was installing a new ignition switch.
I'd say that's your solution as well.
#1156 of 1409 Passenger window not working
May 23, 2004 (5:51 pm)
Both control buttons (driver's side and passenger side) for my '99 LHS passenger window have stopped working. Buttons for the other windows still work. Has anyone had this problem and what is the fix besides the service department of my local Chrysler dealer?

Wow! You're lucky it took this long to burn out. It was a common problem that many LH owners had. You need new window motors.

Thanks, fastdriver, for the info on my non-functioning window. Could you give me more information on the fix, such as: estimate on repair and can my local mechanic do the job? Thanks in advance.
