#16 of 45 1998 Concorde doesn't start in the cold
Jan 15, 2008 (5:46 pm)
I have had and on going problem of my Concorde not starting in the cold. The engine cranks but does not kick over, but when the weather warms up it starts. I had the cam sensor and the crank sensor replaced 6 months ago. It ran fine until a month ago, took it to the dealer and it started for them so they couldn't tell me what happened.
#17 of 45 1998 Chrysler Concorde Gas Gauge Question
Jul 08, 2008 (10:51 am)
I have a 1998 Chrysler Concorde with a little over 100,000 original miles on the engine. A couple of months ago, while driving, the gas gauge needle dropped down causing the ding sound that the tank is empty but the tank is not empty. I filled the tank up full, the needle did not drop again until the tank got down to 3/4 tank, then it continued drop off and on until the needle showed it was below 1/2 tank. I took it to the garage, the mechanic stated it did not do this strange thing for him but he cleaned the connectors in the wiring under the front driver's seat. It was a couple of days after that when that it started dropping again. What is this? what needs to be fixed? is something to do with the float? float sensor? Everyone is scratching their heads on this one.

I replaced my rack & pinion & in the process I broke the clockspring. I replaced the clockspring & now the air bag light is on. My cruise control works & all lights. Is there a way get rid of the air bag light without using a scanner?

I had the same problem with the interior lights flashing, then I couldn't turn them off, so I took out all the bulbs so my battery wouldn't be drained. Yesterday I was driving and all of a sudden lost power, including my steering. I coasted to the side of the road. My headlights and dashboard still worked. (I do have plenty of gas in tank.) I waited a minute or so, then restarted the car. I drove it home but now I don't know what to do. Why would the car lose power while driving? This is the worst piece of crap car I have ever owned!
#20 of 45 I lost a lot.

I lost air bags, power windows and heater control. I think it may be related to the ignition switch? the key on engine running fuse works, but no power in the fuse box for the above mentioned components. Any ideas?

You are certainly not the only one. Chrysler Concorde wiring is terrible. It breaks down after 8-10 years and then cold and moisture effects it. I have a 1994 Concorde and it only will not start when the temp drops below 50. I have seen a few other posts stating this same problem. When I turn the key to the on position the fule needle does not rise and I notice that is because the fuel pump is not making a "whirring" sound and turning on. It is a problem within the wires somewhere between the power source and the fuel pump under the trunk lining. Strange connection between these two. I am in Florida and it has been cold so now I wait for it to warm up enough so I can go to work. Yesterday it was about 10am. CRAZY! Did you find out an answer to this similiar issue? I have not seen anything posted. Let me know and I will let you know. Thanks.

As soon as it is around 45-50 degrees the fuel pump will turn on and the car works fine. Any ideas where in the wiring this is being caused??? Thanks.
#23 of 45 gas gauge possessed

Help, My 2001 chrysler concorde gas gauge flashes empty to full, empty to full as I am driving. Sent it to the shop, and they could not reproduce it, Then the car started to jerk, it cost me 500$ for some kind of "timing device" and the car still flashes empty full while I am driving with a full tank... HELP can't afford more repairs, but want to know, is this safe? Can I fix this myself with some sort of fuse? Desperately seeking answers
#24 of 45 1995 Concorde cranks & wont start

long story short, no fuel pressure, found half of fuses without voltage until I wiggle the steering wheel. Then the gages, blower motor, fuel pump start working until the steering wheel (column) is moved again and looses voltage. what could be causing this?
#25 of 45 Ambient Temperature Sensor
Jun 22, 2009 (10:27 am)
I have a second hand 96 Concorde LXi - bought 3.5 years ago from retired couple at 46 000 km, right now it has 78 000 km - mechanically sound but electrically rather a lemon.
To make the story not too long - right now the overhead console temperature display behaves not very well. Most of the time it takes about 10 min. of driving before it "catches up" to the outside temperature. But some time it's even more weird - today in the underground garage it was showing 17 C, almost immediately after leaving garage jumped to 20 C though I felt that it still was NOT right (it felt more like around 25 C). Than after about another 10 min. of driving it jumped to 24 C (which is about right). The Automatic Temperature Control was OFF all the time.
I have observed this strange behavior for about 6 past months. What worries me most is that ATS sensor also probably "talks" to the main computer (via Body Control Module, BCM) that controls A/C and once A/C gets turned on the things may really get out of hand.
Any clues what causes the problem ? Is it the ATM or BCM ? I have replaced the main computer (Power Control Module) about 3 years ago.
