#98 of 721 Leg Bumping Steering Wheel
Jan 11, 2004 (4:53 pm)
Hello just bought a 2000 Sebring LXI with the works, leather seats roof the works!! I LOVE THIS CAR! really runs great so far, checked it out on Car Fax and everything came back ok and I got it for a really really good price to boot! The only problem I'm having is my right leg hits the bottom of the steering wheel while braking I'm only 6' with a inseam of only 30 inches so I can't understand how the engineers could of goofed like this. Let so of my friends drive and all except the one that's 5'7" has problems. Can't understand how I missed this when I was checking the car out guess I was so excited that I wasn't paying attention. Went to the Chrysler dealer and seat in a new 2004 and found that they corrected this buy allowing the wheel to tilt upward more. I only need about a inch more leg room I estimate to resolve this problem wondering if the seat could be moved back a little? or anything else within reason that anyone could suggest would be helpful. Thanks for your time and assistance.

dpotts1 I have a 2000 sebring, a I am having the same problem you are. There are days when "she" will start fine and then there are days when I'm afraid to turn "her" off for fear of her not starting back up. If you have any information about this problem please let me know. Thank you.

#101 of 721 1998 jx convertable idle issue
Jan 14, 2004 (11:38 am)
Hi everyone I have a similar issue to the person in item#9,after my 2.5 6cyl is warmed up completely after a highway ride then down a 3mile stretch with a bunch of lights,my idle will drop to around 500 and then my oil light comes on. Shifting from drive to neutral for a second makes it go away. Also turning the AC on takes care of it. I have had the pressure switch changed and the pressure checked with a manual gauge and the 5star dealer said it was fine. I still have the light issue and I would love to resolve it. Any suggestions?
#102 of 721 steering noise
Jan 21, 2004 (3:26 pm)
my power steering makes noise all the time. Finally go the service guy (AT the dealer) to hear it, and he said, that's just the power steering pump - that's how it is supposed to sound. This sucker is loud. A rubbing noise anytime you apply the breaks or turn the wheel. He says he has taken out the pump and replaced it, but the noise is there 90% of the time.
What do you think?

#103 of 721 Chrysler Electrical Problem
Jan 25, 2004 (11:09 am)
Problem started ~80k miles. My problem is actually with a Cirrus, but the problem is identical to post #75: The "problem is that the odometer and tachometer work intermittently. The mileage accumulates, but we can't read it because the odometer is not illuminated."
I noticed that sometimes the headlights being turned on/off can "trigger" it back on. Help?

If the noise is worse right after a cold start, then this is exactly what mine sounded like. See my previous posts #90 and #96, its been several weeks now and the noise is gone !!
#106 of 721 Odometer/Tachometer Problem
Feb 26, 2004 (9:57 am)
Just like posting #75 and #103, my 97 JX is having the same problem of the odometer and tachometer going offline intermittently. Everything else works on the dash. Mileage still accumulates so I don't think it is anything mechanical like the cable. Has anyone been able to get this resolved or have any information as to why it is happening? I'm used to it now but it is sooooo annoying especially since I change the oil every 4-5k miles and need the odometer to tell me when I need to change the oil. I'm also used to the Service Engine Light coming on intermittenly as well but I've had Chrysler check out the electrical system only to tell me they've found nothing wrong, reset it and charge me $70. I've done that 3 times and given them $210 to let me know my car is fine.
As always, thank you all for being a helpful community of owners.
--1997 Sebring JX with 160,245 miles last time odometer was on (yesterday). Still running strong !!!!! THE MOST reliable car I've ever had the pleasure of owning !!!!!!
