What is this discussion about?
Chrysler Sebring, Convertible
#413 of 461 Got a problem
Mar 03, 2010 (4:52 pm)
1998 Chrysler Sebring
6 Cyl. 2.5L
Just bought this car for my Daughter and have had the following done with no results. (paid $1500.00, but put $695.00 on sales slip to help with sales tax, got boned)
Replaced plugs, rotor, dist. cap., wires
Checked out misfire Cyl 5, codes PO300 & PO305 found.
Leak down test (Good) for Cyl.5
Compression Test 172
Replace lower and upper intake Gaskets
Swap Injector & Spark Plug 5 & 6 No Change.
I also had to replace the Cat. Converter because it was broken up inside, the guy at the Garage said that could have been from the injector at 5 shooting to much gas and overheating the Cat.
Garage said the computer seems as if it was replace at some time because there is a sticker on it that says it has to be programed and New cars do not have these stickers.
He suspects a wire could be the problem but says it could take days to find it. I'm already into this thing for $1200.00 (parts & labor) on the of the $1500.00 I paid.
Any help would be appreciated.

have same problem and recently found out that there are cables under the seat and activate seatbelt.(not exactly sure why this is necessary) so make sure the cable/wires are connected, maybe they are loose or disconnected. hope this helps.

I had three people look at it, the last guy told me it was more than likely a wire that had been chaffed and is rubbing or shorting somewhere. He suggested a Chrysler Dealer cause they know should know more about the car and places where that could happen. So the Dealer suggested a new Computer, after running up a $450 dollar bill, the car has all ready had a new computer put in it, we can tell this cause it has a Must be Programmed Tag. Bottom line is if a Chrysler Dealer can't fix it who can???

We own a 2008 Sebring Convertible, and whenever my wife drives it in the rain it will stall, 30,45,55 mph, it doesn't matter, it just cuts out. It has a 4 cylinder, automatic. I'm getting no love from the dealership about this.
#417 of 461 RE: 2007 Sebring stumbling during acceleration in rain
Mar 22, 2010 (3:24 pm)
I have a 2007 Sebring Sedan, 2.4L - 4 Cyl, stumbling during acceleration when raining. The Sebring's computer is not posting any error code (or Check Engine Light). The first Chrysler dealer inspecting the car recommended a new throttle body; part replaced but did not solve the problem. After this, I replaced the MAP sensor; did not correct the problem. A few days ago, I took it to the third dealership where a new set of spark plugs was recommended and installed. However, this morning it rained a lot around here and the car began missing/stumbling again. I am heading back to the dealer.

#419 of 461 car jumps/cuts out when crossing overpassess
May 01, 2010 (4:39 pm)
I have an 2003 Sebring, when I cross a bridge or an overpass it jumps (like it is out of gas or the transmission is going out) and the engine light comes on....anyone else having this problem?

I had a similar problem. When I accelerated hard, I had the bucking sensation you described. When the problem got worse, it even happened on low acceleration on level ground. The problem was the camshaft position sensor. There should be an error code saved in the computer. Go to an auto parts store store that will read it for free. I had difficulty finding the part so I just took it to the dealer to replace. There was nothing in the Haynes manual on replacing the device. If you have a mechanic you trust, you might give him a try. If you are handy with tools, you might try a Chilton's repair book or one of those online services. I think Checker had the part. Look on line before driving around. Good luck

Anyone know what is the thing in the "box" between the rearview mirror and the handle of the roof? I started hearing this rattle comming from there, so I opened it up and it looks like some sort of magnet or something... it stopped making the rattle for a few days and now its back.
