Airbag clock spring defect! how many complaints need to filed before NHTSA responds to a major safety issue and investigates this for a possible recall" according to their guide lines, there is no specific number. Maybe they should consider all other vehicles manufactured by Chrysler in 2001, in the same group size but different models, I.e. intrepid, concorde etc. And this doesn't include cars that people had fixed and or, cars no longer in service who's owners are not aware that it is a safety issue because it's out of warranty. Why are all of the other year and model cars from 1998 to present being recalled, except for the 2001 Lhs??" why is Chrysler charging 3X's as much more for this clock spring as compared to all the others that are almost identical. There can't be that much difference!!! maybe I should go on social media and launch my own campaign to see how many other people have this issue and are not aware of this process. This has been going on for me since 2012. Contacted Chrysler numerous times about this issue!

The clockspring on this model is defective and needs to be replaced. After trying to order the part for repairs from numerous distributors and dealers, it was determined that Chrysler has not released an order to make and distribute the part! this is going on over 2 years for our vehicle and possibly longer for other owners of the same model. This part is vital to the safety of the driver, it's passengers and the operation of the vehicle, because it controls the airbag, turn signals and horn!!! the vehicle is unsafe in this condition and posses a possible risk to the driver and passengers in the event of an accident. Chrysler will not give us any information as to when they will release this part!

Been having electrical problems on going with the interior lights blinking on and off even when the car is parked and ignition is off. The electrical problems occurs approximately every 5-6 months increments, causing the battery to go dead. Can be driving down the road and the car will just cut off. Have spoken with several people with Chrysler that has been having the same or similar problems but there has been no recalls concerning the electrical components of the Chrysler. The problem has begin to get worse and worse. We need some help. There are several different complaints on various sites on the web concerning electrical issues with the Chrysler. This was a new car. It is not a used car. Could you please help or give guidance on how to handle this. There has been no recalls concerning this issue. The car has been on the interstate and just cut off.

2001 Chrysler Lhs. The vehicle has about 100,000 miles on the odometer. Issue #1 the vehicle dies suddenly while driving. This is a random occurrence, but very unsafe. I intend to contact Chrysler about this issue, but no safety recalls have been made for this vehicle. Issue #2 vehicle engine surges suddenly when stopped while the driver has their foot on the brake and not touching the accelerator at all. The idle jumps around anywhere from 1,000 - 2000 RPM and then settles back down to normal idle on it's own after a few seconds. This is a random occurrence, but could be a safety issue if the brakes do not hold.
