Chrysler Concorde owners have reported 21 problems related to electrical system (under the electrical system category).
Since 2010, the car has had many electrical issues that have resulted in over 5,000 dollars in repairs and the problems continue to persist. In 2010, the car began having intermittent lighting issues and failure of the trunk latch opening mechanism. In Aug 2010, the bcm was fixed/replaced. Since then, the a/c has become the problem that has led to thousand of dollars of repairs. The problem is that intermittently the a/c will not respond to changes in the temperature controls and only 180 degree air comes out. The dealer has replaced almost all mechanical parts of the a/c and the electrical controls with the exception of the bcm. The problem continues and now the so call new bcm is no longer under warrantee.

I own a 2004 Concorde. I just have had recall work done on this car. I called the local dealership and ask them if there was any recalls on this car because it has been stalling while driving at various speeds. If you own one of these cars call your dealership. The recall number is 18j18182 recall j18. The recall reprograms the computer.

The car head lights & dash lights dim when driving. If you play with control switch it sometimes makes them work right. Car stalls and doesn't want to restart. We have done the recall for exhaust. The a/c all the sudden started making noises when stalling and now does not work makes a hissing sound. I have kept this car in great shape and have it maintained & serviced regularly. I have had several sensors replaced and the engine light refuses to go off. I put it in the shop and they said it was because gas cap was loose. That wasn't the case, car is now sitting in driveway unable to start. Had the heads removed and fuel injectors cleaned and car still won't run.

Electrical system, engine, transmission problems. Our 2004 Chrysler Concorde lxi has developed many problems over the past 2 years, I will try to list them here. We have had many events of false readings from the brain of the car according to our mechanic. The check engine light comes on as does the oil and transmission light. There has been many times that the car has just cut off at different stages in driving. We have been in stop and go traffic, or going down a city street, or driving down the highway, or just come to a stop light, or just making a turn after slowing down. So as you can see the speeds that the car cuts off varies from 0 to 5 and from 5 to 40 and from 40 to 70 miles per hour. This car has sputtered, jerked, spewed black smoke, ran so rough that we thought it would shake apart. We have had to pull over to the side of the road so many times because the car cut off, that is if it would make it to the side of the road. Sometimes it takes from 5 minutes to 45 minutes before the car will re crank again. We have had the car serviced regularly as it should be by certified mechanics. They have put the diagnostics machine on it so many times and the readings are always false according to them, because if it were a true reading the car wouldn't be running at all. We have been so lucky that no one has been injured or killed so far because of these problems. Because we have had so many close collisions because of these problems, I am afraid for my wife who has to drive this car to work. I can only pray that something can be done about these problems before someone is injured or god forbid even killed !!!.
On the morning of 10/20/2006, my husband was driving to work in our 1998 Chrysler Concorde. He was in rush hour traffic and the engine started knocking and losing power, the oil light also came on when he stopped. He was able to make it to work and park the car. Only to be told by a certified mechanic that we have "engine failure" and need a new engine. More than likely due to "oil sludge". . . Whatever that is. We have had the oil changed in this car every 3,000 miles with synthetic oil since purchasing it from my parents in 2001. My parents had purchased the vehicle new and also had the oil changed every 3,000 miles. Our mechanic told us this "oil sludge" and engine failure is a major problem with these cars that have the 2. 7l engine. We can not afford a new engine let alone a rebuilt engine. My husband has no transportation to work now, as we have 5 children 3 of them under 3, and I can't be without a vehicle due to our middle daughter's health problems and 3 weekly doctor appointments. My husband's job is in the city which is a 30 - 45 minute commute. Now my husband is having to take a bus to work and has to add 2 additional hours on to his commute time. Less time with family and a car with 72,000 miles that we can't drive!!!
Chrysler's own mechanics admit the defect with the 2. 7l engines, why won't the company acknowlege the problem. I'll tell you why. . . . . . Having to stand up and take responsibility for their defective engine would totally bankrupt them. Not to mention tarnish the "mercedes-benz" affilitation. Since hearing this I have researched this and have found thousands of people with the same problem and Chrysler won't do a damn thing about it!!! my parents have been loyal Chrysler owners since their first new car 40 years ago. . . . . . I doubt that they will continue to be.

Car sputters, check engine light will come on suddenly, car will stall. Has happened while driving on freeway, as well as stop and go traffic. Has caused several near crashes. I have to pull over when car stalls, put car into park, and restart with no problems. Happens on several occasions, without regard to gas level or speed. Will also cause other components to malfunction, such as air conditioning, radio and cruise control. Has been happening for almost 6 mos now.
2000 Concorde~this will be the fourth time in less than a year my car has been in the shop for a/c repair. It will just all of a sudden stop cooling. The first time, 08/2004, it held a charge and Chrysler couldn't find a leak or problem anywhere. The second time, 04/2005, Chrysler couldn't find anything wrong again, so they suggested replacing the evaporator coil (they weren't positive if this was the problem or not since the e. Coil seemed "o. K. ") to replace the e. Coil it would have cost $1,100! so, Chrysler refers me to a local, very reputable, auto a/c business. We take it there, 04/2005, the a/c holds a charge all night and they can't find any leaks anywhere, plus there is nothing wrong with the evaporator coil. Today is a month later and my a/c is not working again! I think Chrysler should fix the problem at no charge.

1997 Chrysler Concorde experiencing problems with dash board gauges and lights blinking and becoming inoperative.

There were serious safety defects. The a/c turns on even if locked out, the driver's door leaked, the dash lights blink on/off without control (all gauges), and the airbag light, lights up. Bf the trunk would open due to moisture in the air, at night, the window would steam up completely in seconds, and the speedometer would quit.
The headlights work intermittently, making the ability to see the road difficult at night, and increasing the risk of a crash. Owner will contact manufacturer. This condition also exist when the vehicle is turned off. Also the dashboard lights would flicker intermittently.
I went to credit cars to purchase a vehicle kind-of last minute. Their salesman "alfredo" told me I needed some one to sign for "job liability. " I told him I did not have nor want a CO-signer. He assurred my friend/job liability signer, candace gulick, that she would not be a CO-signer. We later found out that he lied. When I drove my car off the lot, credit cars and I had an agreement to fix the non-operating gages. They attempted to fix them 4 times. (1 at credit cars, 3 at cal-rich automotive) after 4 attempts and no luck, thomas from credit cars told me to fix the 2 problems with my own money, and because it was electrical he didn't have to fix it. We had an agreement before I bought the car. (the 2nd problem was I opened my sunroof once and it never closed again. ) because of the sunroof not closing my upholstery molded and was ruined. I decided to take a trip a couple of hundred miles away and the transmission went out 10/15/2004 and left me stranded. This was only after having the car for almost 2mos. I had a pre-paid lawyer service write them a letter and all I received were harrassing phone calls at my last job. I spent almost $700. 00 of my own money to try and get home when the "new" car left me stranded. Mind you that I am a 21yr old female and I was alone.
While driving,the vehicle stalled. The consumer tried to restart the vehicle, but was unsuccessful. The consumer had the vehicle towed to the dealer for inspection. The mechanic informed the consumer that the problem could not be determined at this time. Please fill in additional information.
Since I purchased a 1999 Chrysler Concorde new, I have had the car in the dealer over 20 times. I have numerous electrical issues, I have been stranded numerous times and I have incurred costs over the last 4 years that not only forced me to rent a car over and over, but the time lost from work is inexcusable. I have had brake failure almost resulting in a car crash. Now, my car is in the dealership due to smoke smell burning wires and a computer and electrical issue. Chrysler states they don't know if they willl pay for this problem. This has been happening since day one and it's dangerous. I am in fear for the safety of my family riding in this car. It is a death trap. This car should have been deemed recalled under the lemon law. I know various people who have the same car and they have had the same problems that Chrysler ignores and fails to deal with it.
On 6/12/03 I filled out a vehicle owners questionnaire on a 1999 Chrysler Concorde, VIN 2c3hd46r9xh766601. On 8/02/02 I purchased this Chrysler Concorde with 48,580 miles. On 8/15/02, I took the car back to carl gregory because of electrical problems, car leaking oil, brakes sticking, and air, heater,defrost,ventilation problems. Upon arrival to carl gregory on 8/15/02 to drop the car off to be serviced there were 48,620 miles on the odometer. After receiving a phone call from carl gregory dealership stating "that the car was ready. " "and had been serviced. " after arriving and getting in the car, I noticed that the odometer had been changed, because it was now reading 48,883 miles. I then questioned paul mooney about the additional miles and was told "been everything had fixed. " on 4/15/03, I was back at carl gregory having electrical problems in the dashboard. And the air conditioner was blowing out hot air. In the month of may 2003, I received a recall notice about the driver's seat bolt being defective, which may break causing the seat to suddenly recline. I took the car in on 5/27/03 to have the bolt replaced. After being at the dealership for about two minutes I was told that "the car was ready to go. " I asked if the bolt had been replaced? I do not belive it had because it was not gone long enough. I aso had to request a customer's copy of the invoice. When I received the invoice I notice that the invoice stated that the car was gray. The car is black. Please look into this matter. Thank you jacqueline riley 6069 hunter ridge circle columbus, GA. 31907 journeybegin2@juno. Com.

Problems with vehicle's heater, engine making knocking noises and slow acceleration. The heater stopped working intermittently which lead to a build up of heat in the engine cabin, which in turn lead to a build up of sludge. During acceleration, the vehicle rattled and vibrated and it did not accelerate smoothly. The consumer was informed that the entire engine block needed to be replaced, which was the cause of the problems. Also the front window and power mirror were inoperative, the dealer found a bad window motor.
