What is this discussion about?
Chrysler LHS, Sedan
#424 of 1408 sticking windows mmanson2
Jun 10, 2000 (4:24 am)
My dad owns a 1999 Chrysler LHS and the windows
started sticking and the drivers power window motor burned out.
I have found out from the dealer that the window tracks and the rubber at the top of the windows need cleaning and lubrication.
The dealer said silicone for lubrication.
The damp moisture gets in the tracks and the
rubber causing the windows to stick like glue
in the heat of a hot day.
Note! This car has never been in a garage, it is in the weather all the time and this might
make a difference to other people.
I talked to several Chrysler dealers and they
have been replacing power window motors a lot lately because of this problem.
To all that read this, take a little time for
cleaning and maintenance it helps in the long run.

There is a TSB out on this that the dealer can find if he bothers to look in his computer. It was probably issued in late 98 or early 99.

Great info on the makers of OEM Stereos. BUT, in the WEAK defense of my LHS STEREO...it definitely
sounds MUCH better than my 98 BUICK PARK AVE ULTRA
FACTORY STEREO (yes upgraded model!!). It was
truely LOUSY and embasassing!!! There were sounds
that I could hear on my daughters 150.00 home
stereo that I could NOT hear on it....poorest I've
ever heard....but I did only pay $35K for the ULTRA!
#427 of 1408 ROAD NOISE
Jun 13, 2000 (3:27 pm)
Hi. Still waiting on someone with the knowledge of
how some autos have less road noise & tire noise than others (see the last few postings). Think about some of the autos in the 70's/80's...top line models...they were real quiet...why? I gotta
believe its all that lousy, "thin" plastics used
today. EX: wheel well shields now plastic vs metal
before, etc. Add more insulation? Where?
#428 of 1408 Auto/Manual temperature controls
Jun 14, 2000 (1:18 am)
I like to use the auto temp control in kind of a "set it and forget it" fashion. I had a Lincoln before and almost never adjusted the temperature the whole time I had the car. On my 2000 LHS, it switches from auto mode to manual sometimes by itself....after I shut the car off and start it again....but not always. I shut the car off and it is in auto mode. I later start the car and it is in manual mode. Anyone else experience this? I haven't talked to my dealer yet.

There is a TSB on this. Go to http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov Click on problems and issues under the red car and then click on TSB. Put in the appropriate info and you'll find a "summary" of the TSB. Print it out and take it to your dealer who can put the TSB number in their computer, if they know HOW to use it, and the full TSB will be there.
#430 of 1408 Can't find TSB
Jun 15, 2000 (12:20 am)
I checked the TSB's on the 2000 LHS and don't see anything about my problem. If you can find it, let me know. Thanks for the help.

It is not listed for 2000 but I searched 1999 and it is there. Thanks.
#432 of 1408 '96 LHS, back to square one
Jun 16, 2000 (3:21 am)
Got my LHS back from the dealer after the work listed under post #441 and the growling noise is still there. Was 95% sure I had this thing figured out and the dealer must have thought so too since they performed the work. The power steering pump was visibly leaking and they said the water pump was also. Now they suspect a problem with the traction control, but it growls with that feature turned off. It is a very nice car and the dealer is quite reputable. Maybe the growling is nothing to worry about since every Chrysler I ever owned has made some kind of wierd noise. The potential steering rack problem, which is being investigated by the NHTSA, still bothers me

I THINK the "growling noise" you hear is coming from the Chrysler stockholders! LOL........ Just kidding.
