How much does it cost to replace a door on a 2004 chrysler town and country. Passenger side and scraped up.?

Question 1
How much does it cost to replace a door on a 2004 chrysler town and country. Passenger side and scraped up.?...  Has paint gone

1)   go to junk yards----or a auto part store[call first and ask ok - meanddave

2)   probably around 500 - dmartin2214

3)   You might be able to get the dents knocked out, or have a door skin put on. Check with a body shop, - badbill1941

4)   Is this the front passenger door or the sliding door. The front passenger door maybe 300-500 depending on new or used. The sliding door is a bit more. A body shop may be able to save it for less. good luck. - C-Tech


Question 2
Need Help with 2001 Chrysler Sebring?...  I have a 2001 Chrysler Sebring. The engine died on it and I am in the process of getting it replaced. The mechanic has got a new engine and put it in but now it wont start. It will crank but will not turn on. The mechanic was thinking it was an "electronics issue" and he even got a different engine and the same problem happened. It will crank really strong but just will not start. Is this a security system issue or fuses, maybe anti theft ? As far as I know there is not an alarm system on the car. It is a 2.7 L DOHC 24 valve for a chrysler sebring. Please if anyone knows whats wrong I don't want to lose out on $1250.

1)   Some mechanic you got there. Does it have spark? Is it getting fuel? Does your "mechanic" have a scanner to plug into the cars computer to check for codes? There are some many things that could be wrong there's no way for anyone to help you without seeing the car. Sorry. - aircooledjaf

2)   Have you look at the computer it may be bad a bad computer will not let the car start it will crank all day but if the computer is bad it will not start at all - STEELERS Nation( THE JOY OF SIX)

3)   Maybe he installed the engine backwards - Dan

4)   There are electronic differences in the 2.7L engines. If your mechanic got a later model 2.7L engine, the timing slots on the flexplate and the cam timing wheel are different from yours. You may need to trans fer those parts from your old engine to the newer one. Good luck. Check, they have a complete section on this type of engine swap. - C-Tech


Question 3
How to set the clock for my 1990 Plymouth Acclaim?...  I just bought my first car-- a 1990 Plymouth Acclaim-- and for some reason I can't figure out how to set the digital clock. I consulted the manual that came with it, but it just says to check a separate manual for instructions on how to set it. I don't have the other manual, so I was just hoping somebody could tell me how to do it. I would really appreciate it.

1)   You should have gotten a Ford. - Crest C

2)   If the radio is factory installed you should find two small holes on the right hand side of the radio with a H and a M under them. Turn the radio on and punch with a ball point pen in the H for the hour and M for the minutes. - James

3)   James could be correct but I think the H and M came a little later about '92.

I think on the '90 models you had to use the "SET" button on the radio to set the correct time. You pushed the SET button until a single number digit was displayed on the dial, this was the hour, turn the station tuning knob until the current hour is displayed, press the SET button again and two digits will be displayed, this will be the minutes, again turn the tuning knob until the current minutes are displayed. I believe you press the SET button again until the radio frequency is displayed and you're good to go on time.

The radio must be on to accomplish this and my directions could be off a little but that is the basic idea, the SET button must be used to set the time and it is also used to set the radio stations to the buttons under the display. If I remember correctly, the volume knob is used to set the display to showing the time after tuning a station, the frequency will be displayed for five or so seconds than will change to the time. If you wish not to see the time push the volume knob and the time will not be displayed just the radio frequency. - Don't know everything !

4)   the answer from "don't know everything" is correct. i worked for Chrysler at the time, and what he is saying is dead on. i hope the car works out well for you. - Mike


Question 4
Loss of electrical power in 98 Chrysler Sebring, alternator most likely suspect?...  Twoo weeks ago my lights began to dim and the radio shut off as I returned to work. I shut the car off and needed a jump. After the jump the car continued to run and I was able to make the 20 mile trip home. THe next day it started right up and I had no problems. For two weeks the battery light would come on and then go off but I had not problems(I know, I have been meaning to check the connections, but the battery is behind the driverside wheel and it has been cold outside) So tonight the radio went out, so I shut of everything else that was sucking power, heater, etc. Then the lights continued to dim until the fuel pump I assume lost power(the fuel light came on), I put it in nuetral and coasted to a safe place to stop. The battery had some power but not enough to start on its own. We checked the battery and alternator last week and the showed good on the meter, maybe bad connections, can someone give me a good idea on what the likely suspect is; is the alternator slowly petering out, can the do that or is it a all or nothing kind of thing! Appreciate the help!

1)   It Can Still Be the Battery Or Alt. Going Out, If You can try Testing The Battery The Next Time it Acts Up, The Best I could recommend It To take It To A garage And Have The History Checked On The Computer To See What The Issue is before you Start Buying Parts. - awesomegourds

2)   Most probably your alternator. If the alternator stops charging your car, the car will leach power out of the battery until it's fully discharged. If your charging system was working properly, you shouldn't have any battery drainage occurring. - HD Sparkster

3)   Check the battery via it's posts with the engine not running and see what voltage it is a fully charged battery will give out close to 13 volts, now with the engine running test it again it should be reading something like 13.7 or 13.9 volts.If not test the wire with the meter at the alternator and a ground see what voltage you get directly from it and if it's 13.7 or 13.9 or so then you know the wiring is the fault. Otherwise the voltage regulator or alternator is the reason you don't have 13.7 or 13.9 volts with the engine running, plus if the voltage is way above 14 volts that also means the voltage regulator is no good.

Hope that helps and best of luck.By the way some voltage regulators are inside the alternator , some are external and some are inside the main comp so call up a parts store and find out where the regulator is on that vehicle.Just be sure to check the alternator belt and check the battery for loose or rusty or corroded connections, and check the engine block ground too , plus clean these connections with sandpaper , a file , a wire brush etc. - helpful bob


Question 5
MY pt cruizer, Has a problem please help?...  It does not change gears, and speedometer quit working, before this I changed battery, first un plugging the positive. The vehicle speed sensor has been changed, the output , the shop said it is not the input. the code in vehicle says abs or ab5, and alb bag......

1)   It's time for a new car.
When disconnecting, and reconnecting a battery, NEGITIVE FIRST. Without a ground, power surges, when reconnecting, can't happen. Like sounds like what happened to your anti-lock brakes, air bag, and control module. May have fried the CCM. the main computer, that tells the tranny when to shift, speed sensor goes through there too. Spedo's don't work on a cable anymore, pulse train. Electronic. You didn't happen to notice a spark when you reconnected the battery, did you? - Joe Blough


3)   DA KING is dead right. You need a speed sensor. - Mike
