The issue is a .30 cent pink piece of plastic under the shifter. I had to remove the entire center column including the front cener ac ducts to get to the piece. I jerry rigged a spring to fix the issue versus giving Chrysler hundreds of dollars to fix something that I feel was designed to fail to create a revenue stream for Chrysler.

My 2004 chrysler sebring suddenly caught up speed while i was driving it and ever since then the rpm is up to 3000 rpms whenever i start it...
Before this happened, I had it serviced from walmart and had the brakes changed.

First off, love the car, hate the tranny. The car will run and then go into limp home mode. I can turn it off and it will be fine and then after 10-20 minutes of driving it does the same thing again. I've seen quite a few of the same issues here but would like to know who has had the same issues and what has worked. I can not afford to go the shop for this, but would love to get it running again.

I wonder if it's a sensor overheating and causing this. If you check around there are some shops that will do a free diagnostic and tell you if a sensor is bad.
I had this done on my daughter's Neon. What I thought might have been an expensive repair turned out to be a bad sensor and it was fixed for less than $100.
#232 of 283 2001 Chrysler Sebring LX Problem
Oct 24, 2009 (7:02 am)
We have a 2001 Chrysler Sebring 4 door sedan with 77,000 miles on it.
A few months back it started making a high pitched sound coming from in between the transmission and engine area. We put a stetoscope on it and can't locate it. It only happens when it is in gear and stopped with your foot on the brake
I changed the transmission fluid and filter AT4 at that time.
And the solnoid pump assembly. 189.00
These didn't solve it.
A. Now this past week when backin out of the driveway from reverse to drive the car doesn't readily go into gear, and you have to switch back and forth to do so.
B. The car also has the bump down shift issue that everyone talks about.
Question A. How do you fix the down shift bump? How do you retrain the computer? What is the kickdown procedure in previous email? It says to disconnect the battery, do you have to disconnect it under the fender or is at the connections at the top of the fender good enough.
Question B. How do you check the transmission pressure reading and where and with what?
Question C. How do you change the front transmission pump? This is what the dealer said they changed when the car had the downshift bump issue when the car had ~25,000 miles on it and was under warranty.
I'll post on how it goes.

#234 of 283 2006 Sebring Convertible Transmission
Nov 05, 2009 (6:51 pm)
I just got the car with 28,000 miles. I was very happy until now at 30,000 miles the transmission "jerks" on a downshift when I am at 40mph to maybe 27mph-30mph. I realized the car had no powertrain warranty, but figured nothing major could go wrong at this low mileage. I have read forum for an hour, but hadn't seen many 2006's mentioned. Any suggestions?

if you are still having this problem you might check the mounting bracket for the shifter cable. It is under the air filter housing and bolts directly to the trans. Ours had the same issue then would slide freely without changing gears.. The bracket is made of cast and it is a dealer item only that was about 60 dollars. good luck
