#184 of 721 Electrical (Seat belt) Problem with 2005 Sebring Convertible
Jan 24, 2005 (1:49 pm)
I purchased a 2005 Sebring Convertible Touring Signature Series on December 28, 2004. I have taken it back twice because the seat belt light intermittently comes on while I am driving and fastened in. The dealership has been unable to replicate the problem, so they have not attempted a repair. The dealership is also unable detect any electrical irregularities from the computer. Chrysler suggested that it might be a sensor. I also noticed this weekend that when I had to break suddenly that the seat belt did not lock. However, when I am in the car and pull the seat belt rapidly that it did work. The car has less than 1200 miles on it. When I purchased it, the battery was completely dead. Any suggestions?
I really love this car especially the color (satin jade); however, I fear that there is a real safety issue (although the light problem doesn't happen all of the time).

I know what you mean. The 2001 I had was a nightmare the first year I ownedit. The car stranded me on several occasions with various electrical gremlins. I finally found a Dodge dealer with a good service department that worked through and corrected most of the car's problems before it went out of warranty. My final solution when I bought the 05 - I switched to another dealer with a better service department and stuck with the brand. I just couldn't justify spending $8 - $10K more for a comparably equipped import such as Honda or Toyota. So far I've put about 5K on the 05 and I'm happy with it and my new dealer.

We just bought a 2004. It has 3400 miles and has been in the shop 5 times. They are telling us they can not fix it.

We just bought this car in November. Our troubles began 3 weeks ago and its currently in the shop for the 5th time. It has only 3400 miles and they are telling us they can not fix it.

Went through this with a 2001 Sebring. Solution - I called the Chrysler hot line and arranged for dealer to get his fanny chewed. Then, I took the car to a local Dodge dealer, and, they managed to fix all the problems that the Chrysler dealer couldn't.

My wife and I will need a newer car for her this spring. We are looking at several options,one of which is a sebring convt. Not the sedan or coupe. Any thoughts as to what to look for or avoid? The only car that comes close is a Mustang-the V6. Sebring is more realistic with the option of seating four adults.

I own a mustang and I love it. I should have bought another mustang instead of buying this sebring which was a mistake.

I have 172,500 miles on my 1997 Sebring LX and it still runs like the day I bought it. No major repairs, just the yearly Oxygen sensor. By the way, the brakes quit squeaking around 160,000 miles.
