Tires and Wheels problem
2005 Chrysler Crossfire


I recently hit a curb and have to replace a bent wheel on my '05 Crossfire. I took it to get an estimate at XXXX shop. After getting the car checked out, my ABS light and the BAS/ESP lights are on now. In addition, the wing that pops up on the Crossfire now comes up every time I drive the car and I can't put it down. The manual switch flashes a red light for the wing. The shop says that it is due to the bent rims, but that wasn't happening until after they checked it out. Any advice?

I have a similiar problem.

Have done extensive troubleshooting of wiring and OBS code scan that showed DTR's 600 and 720 Output speed sensor & serial link communication malfunction respectively - They brake down to numerius rerror codes.

Basically to date found the Body Control Module had failed for the spoiler problem. Replaced it but still have a motor limit switch problem.

My light problem also include a Brake wear and Brake light waring. All of which is controlled by the Controller anti-lock brake modual. Both my rear wheel speed sensors had failed. Replace them but cannot reset the codes that continue to lock in the lights. The manual implies I need nave the dealer only DRBIII scanner (Mercedes System).

In talking to Chrysler dealers there is limited experience with the Xfire and in some cases they don't want to touch the car. Dealer want $90. Per hour plus scan of $90 and the manual T/S process can require extensive hours.

My problem happened just after I had crossed my drive way Curb that I fairly high. The car did not bottom as I remember. The Spoiler went up and the lites came on. I manually lowered it and shut the car down. When I restarted The lites came back on and the spoiler went up and stayed up. Could not control it manually. Up as is a fail safe mode the computer drives it in case the motor fails and you can access it.

I suspect though I am not done troubleshooting the CAB is bad. List price is $800+ but can purchase thru MOPAR warehouse ate $680.
Will update as I go further.

I'm having a similar issue. All 3 lights came on at a rendom point. I think it happened after some extreme down pour rain a few months ago. The dealer has replaced the ABS Module twice so far (luckily my warranty covered most of the $1100). Now they want to replace the Stearing Angle Sensor at $560 which I don't think will fix it and the warranty wont cover that part.

I've found other things on other forums about either the ABS Wheel speed sensor (either replace or clean) or possible a blake switch of some sort?

I want to check those options first but don't know how. I just don't wnat to invest in something that won't work.

Also, the crank shaft position sensor went out at basically the same time but I think that's unrelated.

My final fix after extensive wiring ring out per the manual was both rear speed sensors resistance check were open. Should have been 760 ohms.
Replaced both reset the codes a of my OBD system scanner and returned to normal.
Recently got a AirBag light that the OBD will not scan.
Open Issue
