My 1994 LHS is having a new problem. My abs and air bag lights are steady on and my power windows are not working as well as my air/heat panel. no power to that display as well. I have done some other research and got an answer that it might be the ignition switch. the Person that told me this is an retired chrysler mech. he said that the blower motor pulls so many amps that it is not uncommon for the switch to go bad since it has alot of other things connected to it. he said that I might even notice some burning on the switch if i pull the cover off of it. I wanted to find out what you all thought of this? any other ideas as well. I dont have the money to go to the dealer right now and am really needing the heat to work right now incase i need to defrost windows and such since the cold weather is among us. please let me know if you have any more ideas. thanks

If an old Mechanic has seen this, it is a good place to start.
I have also seen reports that this problem can be caused by a grounding block behind the dash going bad.
Strange as it seems, this is a problem that could cost more than the car is worth to sort out and fix.
I would start with the ignition switch and see what you find.

the New ignition switch worked. It solved all the problems. The Airbag and abs lights went out, and the power windows worked as well as the heat and air. I am so glad since the cold weather is here. I can safely drive it again. If anyone has this same problem, I hope they see this post. Now all i have to do is some brakes and i think i should be good for now.

Were you ever able to find out what was wrong with this car, my 95 is doing the EXACT same thing you describe and I would love to know what it is before I spend thousands trying to figure it out! Thanks! Anybody else who knows feel free to chime in either. None of the gauges work in the dash and the transmission gets stuck at the same time (son't shift out of 1st or 2nd gear and engine revs very high). Seem to be related to eachother interestingly enough.

Sounds like your battery is dying or alternator is going bad...you might want to have your charging system checked
#1366 of 1409 Chrysler LHS wont start
Apr 28, 2010 (1:00 pm)
My LHS wont start. I thought it was the starter and replaced it. the new one wouldnt work either. I took both of them back to the auto parts store and they tested them. they both worked. I gave them the new one back that i bought. I went to put the old one back on and a big part of the solonoid broke off. I just got the new solonoid and put it on. I also changed the connector on the small gauge wire that goes to the ignition switch I think.... Now when i connect the positive cable on the battery, the starter motor spins. I tried switching the negative and positive cables fro the battery around thinking that i had orriginaly hooked it up wrong. it does the same thing no matter how its hooked up. It sounds like the motor is spinning but the solonoid is not engaging and starting the car. before i fixed that green wire that connects to the starter as well i was not getting any thing before.
any Ideas? bad ignition switch? I am confused

My LHS wont start. I replaced the Starter solonoid, the Motor just spins as long as the battery cables are connected. If you pull them off the motor stops. The only other thing that i fixed was the green wire connector that goes to the clip on the solonoid. i think that wire goes to the ignition switch. I did replace the ignition switch a few months ago. Could the ignition switch be the cause of the problem.
#1368 of 1409 94 LHS Phantom Door Locks
Jun 03, 2010 (8:37 am)
On my 1994 LHS, the doors will lock or unlock by themselves and/or the trunk release will activate completely on its own. I've only noticed this when the car is parked and the engine off. I'll leave the car for sometimes only a few minutes, and when I come back, the trunk will be popped open or the locks will be unlocked (or they'll be locked if I left them unlocked). This also happens overnight sometimes when the car is in the garage.
Does anybody have any ideas on what may be causing this or how to fix it?
#1369 of 1409 2nd gear safe mode? 95 lhs
Jun 03, 2010 (9:49 am)
the past few days my 95 lhs transmission has been acting crazy, day 1 I left the house and noticed that it was'nt changing gears, 'I thought it was 1st' but after it sat for a while and i would drive around the block i would feel it shift from low to 2nd but just stay there. my buddy checked it-fluid was fine, he tried driving it to 45mph and shifting to park then to drive but that did nothing, day 2 it drove just fine for many trips, then i felt a little jerking in the tranny then it went back to 2nd and just stayed there. day 3 same thing just fine for half the day, but on the freeway doing 70 it went into a neutral with no gears catching until my speed dropped to about 40 then it jerked and went back to 2nd.. i will change the fluids and filter when i get some dough.. any ideas if that does not help? thank you in advance.. sorry the note is so long.
