Failure Code: P8 - New Part ----------------------------------------- Power Antenna Mast Replacement Vehicle: Dodge Stealth TSB Number: 08-37-95 Group: Electrical Date: Sep. 8, 1995 Subject: Power Antenna Mast Replacement Models: 1991 - 1994 (B7) Stealth Discussion: The antenna mast is a replaceable component on the power antenna. Complete assembly replacement should not be used for problems caused by the mast. Included, for your reference, is the Service Manual Procedure, Labor Operation and Time. Parts Required: 1 MB629309 Power Antenna Mast REPLACEMENT PROCEDURE: (1) Remove the ring nut. (2) Set the radio switch to ON. After the antenna mast has extended, remove the antenna mast and rack cable as an assembly. (3) Extend the replacement antenna mast up to its farthest point. NOTE: If the motor end of the rack cable is bent, straighten it. (4) Force the rack cable into the motor assembly with the tooth side facing toward the luggage compartment. (5) Turn the tooth side of the rack toward the rear of the vehicle (90 clockwise) to bring the rack cable into mesh with the motor gear. (6) Lightly pull the rack cable. If it comes out without resistance, it is not in mesh with the motor gear. Recheck that the cable end is not bent before repeating insertion. (7) With the antenna mast upright and the radio switch OFF, feed the rack cable. As the rack is taken up, insert the mast into the motor assembly. (8) After the ring nut has been tightened, set the radio switch to ON and OFF to check the operation of the mast. Policy: Reimbursable within the provisions of the warranty.

Install the column left side switch by reversing the above procedure. 8. Verify that the turn signal will automatically cancel when the steering wheel is returned to the center position. Policy: Reimbursable within the provisions of the warranty. Repair Procedure: Labor Operation No. 08-85-20-90 . . . . . . . . . 0.3 Hrs. Failure Code: D4 - No Cancel ----------------------------------- SRS Troubleshooting Vehicle: Dodge Stealth TSB Number: 23-25-94 Group: Body Date: Mar. 18, 1994 Subject: Supplemental Restraint System Troubleshooting Models: 1991 - 1994 (B7) Stealth Symptom/Condition: Diagnostic Trouble Codes 11, 12, 13, 22, 32, 34, 41, 42, or 43 displayed during diagnosis of the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS). Diagnosis: Using the Scan Tool (DRB II) with the appropriate service manual or diagnostic procedure manual, verify that the SRS is functioning as designed. If Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC's) are present, record them on the repair order for future reference. A. DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODES 32, 41, OR 42. If diagnostic trouble codes 32, 41 or 42 are displayed, take the following steps: 1. Turn the ignition key off. Remove and charge the battery. 2. Install the charged battery. 3. Turn the ignition key on. Check that the SRS warning light goes out. 4. If the SRS warning light does not go out, turn the ignition key on and off 10 times and check that the SRS warning light goes out. 5. If the SRS warning light does not go out, erase the diagnostic code by using the DRB II and check that the SRS warning light goes out. 6. If the SRS warning light does not go out, using the DRB II, follow the diagnostic procedure for the DTC displayed and correct the condition. B. DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODE 11 If diagnostic trouble code 11 is displayed, take the following steps: 1. Turn the ignition key to the "lock" position and disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery. 2. Remove the front impact sensor and measure the resistance (standard value 2000 Ohms +/- 40 Ohms) between terminals. Always replace the front impact sensor with a new one if the resistance is not within the standard value. 3. Reconnect the front impact sensor and all connectors which were disconnected. 4. Reconnect the negative battery terminal. 5. Turn the ignition key to the "ON" position. 6. If the SRS warning light does not go out, using the DRB II, follow the diagnostic procedure and correct the condition. 7. If fault code 11 is intermittently set and the initial resistance value of the sensors appear to be within specification, leave the meter connected to the sensors for 60 seconds. If the resistance increases beyond the specification during this test, replace the sensor. 8. 1991 and early built 1992 Models: Look for signs of electrical corrosion between the terminal and the bracket on the impact sensors. Moisture entering through the terminal cavity could be the cause. Vehicles built after June 1992 are sealed with resin to eliminate the possibility of moisture entry. C. DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE CODES 12, 13, 22, 34, OR 43. If diagnostic trouble codes 12, 13, 22, 34, or 43 are displayed during the inspection of the SRS system, these codes are set by turning the ignition key to the "ON" position while performing the unlocking procedure for the SRS diagnostic unit and/or disconnecting wiring connectors. 1. Verify that all wiring connectors in the SRS system are properly and fully connected. 2. Verify that the wiring connectors on the SRS diagnostic unit are properly and fully connected. 3. Turn the ignition key to the "ON" position and erase the diagnostic code by using DRB II. 4. If the SRS warning light does not go out, using the DRB II, follow the diagnostic procedure for the DTC displayed and correct the condition. For vehicles built after October 1993, the procedure for unlocking the SRS diagnostic unit connector, the configuration of the lock lever has been changed. A V-slot has been added to the lock lever to aid in making contact with the connector lock spring. Also an arrow mark has been added on the lock lever to help understand the proper direction to push the lock spring. Policy: Information Only ----------------------------------- Door Glass Rattle/Waterleaks/Sluggish Operation TSB Number: 23-10-92 Group: Body Date: Jun. 15, 1992 Subject: Door Glass Rattle/Water Leaks/Sluggish Operation Models: 1991-1992 (B7) Stealth Symptom/Condition:This bulletin addresses three Symptom/Conditions that pertain to door glass operation and service. They are as follows: 1. Door glass rattle resulting from loose regulator retaining bolts. 2. Creaking noise from the door glass guide rollers when rolling the glass up and down, due to a lack of lubricant. 3. Wind noise/water leaks and/or poor door glass fit caused by improper door glass adjustment. REQUIRED PARTS: AR Lock N' Seal, Mopar 4318031 AR Lubricant, Mopar Multi-Purpose 4318063 Repair Procedure: Loose Door Glass Regulator Retaining Bolts This repair procedure involves removing the four door regulator retaining bolts, applying Mopar Lock N ' Seal (PN 4318031) to each bolt and installing the bolts. 1. Remove the door trim panel as described in the service manual. 2. Remove the four door glass regulator retaining bolts (Fig. 1), apply Mopar Lock N ' Seal (PN 4318031) to each bolt and install the bolts. 3. Refer to the service manual for door glass adjustment procedures or when applicable, the adjustment procedures that follow on page 3 of this bulletin under Wind Noise/water Leaks/Poor Glass Fit. 4. Refer to the service manual for trim panel installation. Glass Guide Roller Noise This repair procedure involves lubricating the door glass guide tracks. 1. Remove the door trim panel as described in the service manual. 2. Apply Mopar Multi-Purpose Lubricant on the front and rear door glass guide tracks (Fig. 2). 3. Install the door trim panel as described in the service manual. Wind Noise/Water Leaks/Poor Glass Fit This repair procedure involves adjusting the door glass guide track, the up stop, and the delta sash. 1. Adjust the door glass guide track, the up stop, and the delta sash as described in the service manual, using the dimensions shown in Fig. 3A and 3B. (For futurereference, write the dimensional changes in your service manual.) Note the following when making the adjustments. A. When the rear top corner of the door glass lightly touches the weather strip, the opening between the middle of the door outer panel rear edge and the front edge of the quarter panel are shown in Fig. 3C. B. If it is difficult to adjust the door-to-quarter panel opening to a dimension less than the maximum dimension shown, add a 1/16 inch (1.6 mm) thick washer to the upper rear door glass guide track retaining bolts between the regulator and the inner door panel.
