    Hi folks:

    Looking through some literature about my '92 LeBaron GTC convertible,
    I noticed that there was an option for an EVIC (Electronic Vehicle
    Information Center) to be installed below the radio.

    I have searched and searched for an EVIC to put into the car, but I
    have yet to see a LeBaron that actually had one installed.

    I am wondering if Chrysler truly manufactured this EVIC module for the

    I currently have the two button "traveler" installed ... but his EVIC
    (according to the owners manual) has 6 buttons and displays more

  2. Forget it, you need more than just the EVIC, you need the whole harness, the
    engine compartment node and all the sensors, some which required special
    components like the coolant reservoir bottle had to receive the low coolant
    sensor. If you comb the wreckers you might find a lebaron with what your
    looking for but be prepared to grab everything, harness, sensors, engine
    compartment node, EVIC, brake pads etc.

    My 92 convert. has this option, but it's only recently stopped working. I'm
    now looking for a computer module to replace it. Without it my radio, tach,
    cd and tape plus info center don't work

    Thank you for the reply. Sounds like a BIG project if I ever do find
    one of those EVIC's. Do you think some of the wiring would have been
    done even if the EVIC didn't come with the car? My guess is that it

  5. My experience with Chryslers would tell me no. You can see why options are
    packaged when you talk to the parts man, if you want for example the
    harness which has power locks, it also includes the power seat connectors
    etc (this is just an example-I forget exact details). And you may have
    some wiring and not others, as the wiring passes through the firewall, there
    may be a separate harness for inside the car as to outside. Its a bit of a
    nightmare but if you have the time it might be cool to do.

    Thanks for the reply. I do appreciate your help.

    Another project I had in mind was converting my 'premium audio system'
    in my LeBaron to the Infinity system. It seems like I would need to
    re-wire each speaker .... plus I'll need to find an Infinity head,
    too. Any experience doing such a project like this?

    My 1990 LeBaron Convertable HAD the Infinity system but some
    doof of a previous owner replaced the head unit with a cheap
    CD player and tossed the fancy speakers for some junky ones that
    have really large magnets. He cut the wires off the 4-wire
    plugs and connected the new speakers to the speaker + wires
    and the power ground wires for the speaker's amps. It sorta worked...

    I got some "premium" MoPar speakers out of another convert
    at a junkyard and soldered and shrink tubed everything he'd
    just twisted and taped together. Now it sounds pretty decent,
    especially with the speakers connected to the proper wires.

    Fortunately he did not cut the factory plugs off the harness,
    but cut them off the head unit and connected the CD player
    to the radio's plugs. The same yard has an Infinity sedan
    with the Infinity stereo system, including speakers, but
    it has a tape and no CD in the head unit. Some nut cut the
    wires on one door speaker so I'd have to find out what to
    solder back together. I kept the four wire speaker halves
    of the plugs that the doof connected to his "super" speakers.

    Speaking of speakers, would there be any behind the two dash
    grilles with the Infinity system? A couple of the converts
    in the yard have had those grilles yanked off and it's obvious
    they are for speakers but there's just cardboard blanks screwed
