Yesterday my check engine light came on. When I got back in the car and started it the air and the radio would not come on. Started it a few more times and everything came on. Engine light went off. Got home to the mailbox turned the car off and all of the dashboard lights came on. The ignition was off. Key was not in the ignition. Tried to start car and guess what it did not start. Someone please help me. I haven't checked it today. Is this electrical or something else. It's attempting to start but it's not starting.
#68 of 159 Panic Alarm
Oct 15, 2007 (6:01 am)
Recently purchased an '06 Touring with 19k miles. Several times over the past few weeks the panic alarm has been activated when I've used the keyless entry to unlock the doors. For whatever reason, this has only happened in the early morning at home; I cannot get the conditions reproduced anywhere else or at home when I return from work. The alarm does shut off when I pull out of the driveway and reach 15 MPH. I cannot turn the alarm off by pressing the red panic button on the keyless entry device. Any thoughts?

I have a 2002 Sebring Convertible 2.7 V6 engine with the same problem. I checked the oile and it was loose. I could take it out without a wrench. I bought a new one ($7.00) and replaced it. I also changed the Oil pan Gasket (it was loosing some oil) and now everything works perfect!

Yes! The same thing is happening with my '06 Touring; it has about 25,000 miles on it. Recently - early in the morning - the panic button goes off when I use the keyless entry to unlock the door. I have to hold it down for at least 30 seconds before it shuts off. However, the horn and stuff goes off again when I'm driving! The first time I was just going around 40 mph, but today I was on the freeway doing about 70 mph when the horn started blowing and everything. Again, on both occasions, I had to hold the panic button down for about 30 seconds. Went to the dealership this afternoon, but of course it wouldn't do it's thing. The guy said I need to bring it in while the horn is blaring! Can't wait to drive down the street that way. He thinks it's some sort of elusive electric problem. UGH!!!
#71 of 159 engine warning light

I was driving my car, 2002 sebring, and it suddenly started running rough, and at the same time, the warning engine light was going on and off. It would go off, and then sporadically it would come back on, and everytime it did, the car started to feel like it was missing, or wasnt getting gas. Have it at the shop right now, but was wondering if this could be something major, as I have already put out about $1, 000 in assorted car repairs in the last 2 months.

If you live in a cold winter climate it could be something as simple as ice in the fuel system. Not getting enough gas to the engine will certainly cause it to run rough.
It could be many other things, though.
If the CEL came on the fault code is stored in the car's computer. The shop can connect a scanner to the vehicle and look it up to help pinpoint the problem.

This is much like what happens to mine except I have noticed it only happens on extremely cold mornings--much to the chagrin of my neighbors as they do not exactly appreciate their 7am wake up calls. The horn goes off and after blowing awhile I can feel clicking in the steering wheel that suggests it is the security system when in actuality it is not. The horn only stops once the car has warmed up a little and it will go off at will while driving (yes, folks will pull over and let you by) if it is below freezing outside. I mean what the ? I have looked online and it seems to be a common problem and appears to have been diagnosed in others to be a faulty horn pad. Unfortunately knowing the problem and trying to get the dealership to repair this has been a real issue. Still working on it. Any Suggestions?

Yes! I finally got mine fixed. After having the alarm go off early in the morning - and yes, only when it was really cold - I took it to the dealer. They couldn't find anything wrong with the electrical system, but went ahead and put a whole new computer brain in the car. (It's still under warranty, thank goodness!) So, I brought the car home and it happened again the very next day. Back to the dealer I went. What they finally discovered was that it was not a faulty horn pad, but in the steering wheel assembly with the air bag. The air bag was replaced and I have not had any problems since, and it's been cold here! I was told that this problem should be in the Chrysler system by now. Your dealer may be able to pull it up and get info.
