Hi.. I know this post is old, so I'm curious if this got resolved.
My car seems to be acting the same way, reading a cyl 6 misfire though. What seemed to be the root of the problem for you in this case??
#122 of 160 99 Sebring LXI won't crank
Aug 12, 2010 (9:59 pm)
I have a 99 Sebring LXI 6cy and it keeps shuting off. I have done a tune up, replaced the distributor and cap, Changed the fuel filters and it won't stay on. Sometimes it runs for a day and then shuts off or runs for 2-10mins and then shuts off. I have noticed that sometimes it jerks then shuts down or it will cut off completly. Also when I try to crank it the rpm stick doesn't move at all and the brake light appears on the dash. I'm so lost.
Can someone help????
#123 of 160 SEBRING DISASTER
Sep 28, 2010 (9:57 pm)
My 1997 Sebring 93K is going through many of the mysterious and frustrating problems detailed on this forum. For the moment, replacement of the CRANK SENSOR seems to have eliminated the stalling out problem. However the same day that problem was possibly fixed, the "CHECK ENGINE" light came on and stayed on. So now it is back to STS to check the codes. The interior lights sometimes work, often don't and when I open the trunk, the alarum goes off by itself. CHRYSLER SEBRING IS A MAJOR DISASTER AND I WILL NEVER, EVER BUY A CHRYSLER PRODUCT AGAIN. What really hurts is that Chrysler (dealership and hq) doesn't even acknowledge the huge volume of similar problems registered on this forum. There should be a recall. SHAME ON CHRYSLER, A COMPANY THAT DESERVES TO GO OUT OF BUSINESS.

I'm not trying to minimize your frustration, because I totally understand that these problems are irritating, and can be hard to diagnose or expensive to fix. However, you are talking about a vehicle that is now 14 model years old. No car is warranted for life, and to be honest, if I found a vehicle model that was consistently trouble-free for 14 years, I'd rush out and buy that model today.
I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for a recall, as these issues aren't likely to be traceable to an initial manufacturing defect, and I've never heard of a model year that far back being recalled.
I do hope that you find easy and inexpensive resolutions to the problems you're experiencing.

I have a check engine light that stays on all the time. It goes off for maybe 2 weeks, then comes on and stays on.
Can someone tell me what may be the problem.

I would suggest that you take it to your local Advance Auto Parts and run a diagnostic and see which codes come up. They do this for free. My sebring did the same thing and it turned out to be a spark plug misfire that randomly made my check engine light come on.
#127 of 160 Manufacturer Code P1391
Oct 03, 2010 (9:00 am)
I recently had my check engine light come on so I took my '97 Sebring 2.5 to Advance Auto Parts and ran a diagnostic. The code that came up was Manufacturer Code P1391 Ignition System or misfire. I changed the plugs and wires and the perpetual case of random hiccups it was suffering from seems to have stopped. However, the check engine light is still on. Does anyone know what a P1391 code is for this model? Or do I just need to erase the code?

You need to have Advance Auto erase the code..If it comes back, the problem may not be fixed...
