1997 Chrysler Cirrus Owner Comments

problem #4

Oct 212005

Cirrus 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 94,800 miles


ABS warning light came on. Brought car to dealership for diagnosis. Diagnosis showed system relay output circuit code. Testing showed faulty power distribution center due to corrosion. Proper repair is replacement of power distribution center and harness. Service center found part is no longer manufactured. Service center conducted nationwide parts search to no avail. As a consequence ABS system is now non-functional.

When driving at stop and go brakes went down to the floor. Consumer took the vehicle to the dealer, who bled the brakes, and test drove the vehicle. Told consumer that there wasd nothing wrong. Later, consumer was driving and the brakes continued to go to the floor. Consumer felt insecure when driving this vehicle.

Have contacted 2 dealers for service/confirmation of faulty part, and both report that the pt # is on "national backorder" with no estimted receipt date. ABS light is engaged, and dealers are unwilling to declare the vehicle unsafe. Dealers have been extremely non-cooperative in resolution. Concern is that extended warranty may expire prior to part replacement, or that vehicle safety may be compromised and involved in an incident.
