Imperial 3.3L

  • 87,000 miles


Shorts & electrical fires in Chrysler Imperial. Need to replace all switches & relays. Check the obvious & see if a short exists. Have to replace most all the parts from alternator & battery. To PCM for engine & transmission & other relays & modules. Easy way to find what is bad, disconnect negative battery cable. Leave positive on battery. Take a piece of wire to hook a 12 volt bulb to good ground & negative post. Light will come on if a short is any were in car. Start disconnecting everything. Take not if light goes out. That means you found the offending part. Takes time but my Chrysler had multiple shorts. Vanity mirrors, rear window defogger, heated mirrors, headlight switch & dimmer switch. Takes time but it is cheaper than a dealers price for trouble shooting.

body control module faulty

My 1991 IMPERIAL has been at Salt Lake Valley Chrysler Dealer Service since May 2014 with Digital Dash problems. The problem was tracked down to a faulty "Body Control Module" electrical part Chrysler Part # 5266115 which Larry Foote of this dealer Service Tech Rep says, "cannot be found either New or Used anywhere Nationwide". Without this past my very low mileage Luxury IMPERIAL Dream Car, which otherwise drives like a New Car, will continue to sit ignored in the Dealership Service Dept. lot undriveable without its digital instrument panel working for lack of the above noted part.

PLEASE DON'T LET THIS TERRIBLE FATE HAPPEN!!!! I implore all loyal IMPERIAL owners & restorers to find this part for my car & let me know where to obtain it at so we can put this beautiful IMPERIAL back on the road again.

Thank You,
