#83 of 92 2000 Chrysler Cirrus running issues
Jun 27, 2013 (9:51 am)
I have a 2000 Chrysler Cirrus with the 2.5 V-6 that is having issues staying running. When I start the car and let it idle, it seems to run fine. After it warms up and when you rev it up to 2000 RPM's, it will start to bang, pop, backfire and run rough. The RPM gauge is all over the place. Eventually it will shut off after a few minutes of this. We have tried the throttle positioning sensor, new cap and rotor and it still is doing the same thing. When it did this at first, as soon as it did it and we got the car pulled over off the road, we looked under the car and the catalytic converter was glowing red, so we though maybe it was plugged. The converter was punched out and is totally clear and that didn't help either. Anybody have ideas on this? I've read a lot of other post about this, but some say to do this, some say to do that, and some seem to work for one person, but not the other................At a loss right now!

I have the solution to the Millions of vehicles affected by this failure, its not the Transmission pump, input shaft sensor, output shaft sensor, Selector range sensor, valve body, or solenoids. If you are sick of trying to figure out this problem and are mechanically inclined with a volt meter and basic tools i can help by sending wire colors and diagrams and ultamately guide you through the systematic process of diagnosing a vehicle and then verifying the part is bad. I wanted to post a diagram but it will not let me. it is in the charging system but not alternator! Its in the PCM and its called the (generator field driver) that provades a ground to other components like the (Automatic shut down relay) its an intermitten problem with the PCM unable to provide a source for ground wich in turn confuses the tcm on what to do putting it in fail safe mode. the curcuit loses ground source for a very short second so a noid light, test light, volt meter will work but an ocylliscope would be best... thats why it will go in fail safe at the most random time! it has to be during gear change operation. HARDEST CAR I HAVE EVER DIAGNOSED! 10 YEARS ASE Master Tech. Im not saying that was the only problem with that discription, but its the most unknow fix for the 95% that never were ... i have not heard one tech talk about this! sad! Need help? Just respond

Hi - if you want to send it to me, I can upload the diagram (I think... that feature is flaky, even for hosts). kirstie_h at edmunds.com

I have a 96 cirrus. Great car except for problems much like the ones you are stating. So, what do you do? I am reluctant to replace the computer and keep throwing parts at it.
