The EEK! (Every Extended K) Cars

EEKs are those everyday, durable, interchangeable cars produced by Chrysler throughout the 1980s and 90s, the mainstay of their existence, the pride of Lee Iaccoca - any car based on the K platform, loosely interpreted to include the various extensions of the K - such as the Daytona, early Caravan/Voyager, Spirit, etc. (A full list is further down on this page).

Technically, the only K-cars were the Reliant, Aries, Limo, Executive, and LeBaron; but a wider group of cars with similar architectures and dimensions are lumped together as EEKs, and the public tends to refer to them as "K-cars."

The EEK group has an active EEK! forum. The edited and organized EEK articles and mailing list archives now contain:

Powertrain and electrical Other EEK car repairs

Instrument cluster failure: Joseph Kan wrote, "After checking fuses, I removed the IOD fuse from the fuse
box under the hood (to remove
power from the components that stay on when the key is removed, and to reset these components). I waited twenty minutes and replaced the
fuse. When I tried the ignition, everything worked!" (At a $500 savings over the dealer estimate) - confirmed by Fritz and Laurelyn Schrom (also saving $500) and by Gary A.
