    This is on hold until I get the oil light situation resolved in my car.

    It's going in on Tuesday to see if the recall regarding a pigtail applies to my situation. Hoping it does.

    $140 labor+parts for the recall vs $900 for labor+parts for the oil pump.

    "It'll be okay honey. I promise."


    Personally I believe it to be the fault of the pump, reasons:
    - I have a 3.5L, this applies to 2.7L.
    - I have a 1997, this applies to 1999 models.
    - My luck

    But I am not a mechanic, and my mechanic will know better. He also said he has never had to replace the oil pump in these, only this. I doubt I'd be able to get reimbursed for the procedure as well, since you know. Bankrupt.

    But damn I love this car.

    ANSWER: NO: 08-36-99
    SUBJECT: Engine Oil Pressure Light Flicker
    DATE: Oct. 15, 1999

    SYMPTOM/CONDITION:
    With a hot engine the oil pressure light may be on or flicker on at idle.

    DIAGNOSIS:
    Verify engine oil pressure as described on page 9-21 of the 1999 Concorde/Intrepid/LHS/300M service manual (Publication No. 81-270-9140). If engine oil pressure is within specification perform the Repair Procedure.

    Pull terminal locking ring outward from front (switch) side of connector to gain access to terminal locking tabs.
    Install wire terminal/vent, p/n 05017800AA, in place of the removed sealing dart. Slide locking ring back into place.
    Attach the connector back on the oil pressure switch.
    Spot tape the wire/vent to follow the harness towards the top of the engine compartment.

    POLICY:
    Reimbursable within the provisions of the warranty

    I think what I'm going to do is fit either a piece of plexi or a thick sturdy piece of a sheet metal coming out from the head unit. I can lock it into the metal that surrounds the headunit, and have it come out just under it, just a bit and screw the base of the Lilli into the plate holding it in place.

    Then what I'm thinking is a drill a hole in the plastic just below the headunit to run the cables into that space, and down into the Thin Client.

    What I've got to figure out is how I'm going to get the damn power to the Thin Client from the battery. I can't find a predrilled hole. I've called around and can get it drilled for me for about $60. It might be worth it, as I don't know what I'd be doing to drill like that.

    I thought if it was a recalled part then there would be no cost. Was the $140 for something that was not recalled?

    Well, it's a dicey situation.

    I have to pay up front, and under the provisions of the recall I could get reimbursed. However since it is for a Chrysler - and they're bankrupt - I'm not going to hold my breath for a reimbursement.

    I suspect that you'd be an "unsecured creditor".

    Yeah, I'm not too concerned, if it's just that little piece and all I have to pay is $150, I'll be happy. If it's a $900 job with an Oil Pump then I'll be a little more upset

    My truck is 2003, but thankfully it has a $h!+ load of warranty. When the water pump exploded (yes it exploded), they came and picked up my car and fixed it. I had to pay a $100.00 fee, but thats not bad. When my whole A/C system fried, they had to replace it all, that was free. I hope Chrysler doesn't go under, or at least I hope people buy the brands, like one company buys Dodge, one buys Chrysler, one buys Jeep. I just don't want to see Dodge disappear. Chrysler's car have always been ugly to me. Dodge's version of the same cars always look nicer.

    Haha Hijack, I've always thought the opposite - at least with the Concorde vs. Intrepid
