Chrysler Concorde

Comments

  • In answer to comments made about problems on the concord and question asked I have a 94 with 53000 miles. Plan on trading it before my 7 years is up.
    Still like the car in spite of engine, trans, a/c problems. The dealer Mark Roberts is excellent on service, has a courtesy car when needed, sells at invoice price. I will take a chance on buying another car from him due to the excellent service I have received. I think my problems were very unusual.
  • My 1999 Concorde LX is now 5 weeks old and I am loving it. I had a wonderful purchasing experience with no haggling. I contacted the Fleet Department of my local Chrysler Dealership (Darner Chrysler/Plymouth/Jeep in Mesa, AZ). Minus the rebate, I paid $20,800 (plus tax/tags). My Concorde has the basic features plus CD with 8 speakers, trip computer, split bench seats, 8-way power seats, 16" tires / spare.

    I had test driven the vehicle previously - so I knew that I wanted the Concorde... I did my research and knew what a fair price was. All I did was call the Fleet Dept. They gave me a price *less* than the number I had in mind. I showed up the next day and was in and out of the dealership with my new Concorde in two and a half hours. This was by far the best buying experience to date.

    Congratulations on your new car,(it is a beauty),ENJOY IT!
  • Hi to the room!

    I am experiencing problems with my driver side window. It won't go down. Also intermittent interior lights flickering. Has anyone else had this or similar problems? Any information on these items would be appreciated

    Thanks, Uncle Ho

    by the way, nice login name! nobody here can fix your window over the internet so i guess you'll have to just take it to the dealer. darn, huh?
  • I also have a 99 Concorde LXI and have been having an intermitten problem with my passenger window not working at times from driver window control...the first time I had taken it back to the dealer they said they were unable to duplicate the problem and on my second visit for the same problem they found it to be in the window switch and have it on order and hopefully it will be installed in the next few days.
    Good Luck and enjoy your Concorde

    Does it seem to happen when it is warm? I think the window sticks and it has nothing to do with the motor. Check it out. Try pushing the window down manually with the switch down.
  • I live in Hawaii and the temp is always warm. Your idea was a real good one. I tried it. Unfortunately for me it didn't work. In a way I am glad. Now I can take it to the dealer to check out and they will see the motor doesn't work. I can hear the switch clicking but nothing happens.

    uncleho-

    There are TSB's on those items at- http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/problems/tsb/servicemmy1.cfm Just take down the numbers and the dealer can check them out on his computer. I'm not positive about the window motor, but there is a TSB about the wiring on the motor. However, in other Chrysler topics 300M, LHS etc. some people have had to have the motors or switches replaced.

    Hope this helps.

  • it did help. Thanks Fastdriver.
  • They replaced the D/S window motor, adjusted the engine fan belt, checked out but found no stored codes for the intermittent light problem and washed my car in 5 hours.

    Normally an appointment is required due to the fact there is only one service center here on the Island. They are in the final stages of development for a new service center located on the Leeward side of the Island. But that probably won't be ready till late 2000 or early 2001.

    The current service center can only work on 38 cars at a time. They try to take in 63 cars a day (avg.). The people are some of the most helpful I have ever dealt with. Once, I tried to check out what "5 Star" really meant. I never really got too serious about knowing. Now, I know.

    I also have a unexplained light flickering in my 99 Lxi. The dashboard lights flicker brighter to dimmer intensity occasionally. No pattern of occurence has been noticed so far that would help explain it.

    Also driverside window squeaks when lowered but does still work.

    Anybody else?

    dbask-

    If you go here- http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/problems/tsb/servicemmy1.cfm and put in the appropriate info, you'll see that there is a TSB on the squeaking windows and more. Just write down the numbers and give them to your dealer and he'll be able to pull them up on his computer so that he'll know what to do. I have come to the conclusion that many dealers don't pay ANY attention to these TSB's.

    Hope this helps.

    I have a 1998 Concorde LXI and I have 17,000 mile on it. I have on occasion have had my drivers window stick. Maybe 5 times. And a few times it sounds like the Star Trek door elevator. It's funny, I asked the local Santa Fe dealer if he knows of any problems with the window and he said no. The window seems to work better when I clean the edges of the window.

    Please provide some feedback on this issue.
  • Get some Lexol Vinylex, spray on a rag and wipe the window seals. Clean the line off the window tops also. Worked for me.

    Even I seem to have noticed the lights issue on my 1998 Lxi.
    And I thought that I might be dreaming it.
    I took the car for my 15000 mile service yesterday and mentioned it to the dealer. The dealer kept the car for a day and tried to find it and could not duplicate the problem but has it documented just in case I might need it in future.
    I have not noticed it in the night yet.
    During the daytime it can be spotted with the headlights on and the interior lights set to the dim(middle) setting.
    I hear a click and then the headlights,dashboard lights go off. The odometer and heads up display turns brighter ..(The "effect" is the same as turning the headlights switch to the off position)
    After a couple of minutes I hear another click and then everything becomes normal again.

    This keeps happening a couple of times and then seems to get resolved after I turn the switch completely off and on. The frequency of this problem is more than twice a week.

    The dealer has asked me to drive over to him whenever I notice this so that he can actually see it happen.

    sorry for not responding earlier.

    Fastdriver my have more info than myself. He is really great at this sort of thing.

    The problem with my inside lights coming on and going off intermitenly was never determined bythe dealer because a code was never stored in the computer for the dealer to idneify and correct.

    They would have to tear everything apart and chase each wire. And maybe they wouldn't find anything. The BCM controls everything and is connected to everything else.

    Sorry if I didn't help.

    binu & uncleho-

    Just go to-
    http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/problems/tsb/servicemmy1.cfm and type in the necessary info for your car. When you see the list of TSB's see if any apply to you. The only thing there about lights is the interior lights flickering when they should be on. Nothing about headlights going on and off during the day!

    question for you folks with the 3.2l v/6 concorde(98 or newer). in my owner's manual it says that if you change the oil and filter it will take 5 quarts to again fill the crankcase. well, everytime i get the oil changed and only five quarts is put in, the dipstick always reads significantly above "full". has anyone else noticed this on your concorde? thanks.

    p.s. my car is a 98 intrepid but 3.2l motor is the same as in the concorde.
