Did you every find out what was wrong with your radio? I have a 2001 Sebring convertible that was doing the same thing. I had the radio replaced and after about 3 weeks, the replacement radio has started doing this. The radio comes on when I start the car even if it is turned off and the station display just starts running through the stations. Anyone have any idea? I have had it checked by two different technicians & was told the problem was the radio. Obviously it is not the radio since the new one is doing it too.

My 2001 Sebring Convertible is doing the same thing. The radio stopped all together for about 2 weeks. When I got home from the long weekend it didn't start at all. After being jumped it worked fine. They may or may not be related. Of course it's not doing anything for the dealer so they won't fix it. I'm hoping you have some insights since I've been having problems for almost a year now.

#14 of 60 Finding stereo system replacement for Sebring Convertible, 2001
Aug 24, 2005 (8:11 am)
I need a replacement stereo system for my 2001 Sebring convertible. We want to install ourselves but can't find a unit without going through dealer. Components are am& fm stereo radio with graphic equalizer, 4-cd changer with cassette player. Manual says sales code, RBK whatever that means! Can anyone help or have an idea? Ours has a volume control button that is malfunctioning. We were told it was an Infinity unit.

I bought a 2003 sebring and no owners manuals. How do I set the radio stations?

#18 of 60 Speakers in the dash
Jan 16, 2007 (1:08 pm)
I have a 2 door 1998 LXi Coupe. I have been trying to figure out how to get to the dash speakers without having to remove the whole dash. I can't seem to figure out how to get the grill off or get under the dash. I also don't want to remove the windshield to give me room to work. I am also wondering if the dash speaker and the door speaker are connected together, because there are only four speaker wire sets coming out of the radio and 6 speakers.

If you bought an aftermarket radio, that would rule out the radio. If you had the radio replaced with another factory radio, your problem could still reside in your radio. Here is the problem...plain and simple. When your radio was manufactured, the manufacturer used a solder that was not up to par. This problem is known as cold soldering. The solder connects the components to the motherboard of the radio and when the space around the radio is cold, the solder contracts...like a rubberband with no tension. When that same space heats up, the solder expands and loosens the connection to the motherboard. This causes shorts on the motherboard and explains the flashing LED, the intermittent sound, and the one post that says they experienced the stations scrolling for no appearent reason. This seems to have happened to the 2001 convertibles mostly. Seems like an annoying problem for an entire year just to be caused by solder. If you are looking for an aftermarket raido that supports the cd changer, i would suggest you get an aftermarket cd changer as well, because the problem could be in the cd changer as well. You can look at most major "Automotive Audio Stores" to see if they might carry a radio that supports the cd changer...but i can say that most aftermarket radios don't.

I removed the top cover on a 1997 Sebring for my cousin last month. The top back portion comes off in one piece (just the top part). There are screws on the sides (open the doors). You have to pop off plastic covers (fuse panel on driver side maybe) to get to the screws. Once that is done, the plastic piece can be worked out firmly, but carefully. The main dash has catches up near the windshield/firewall and you will lift up on the front side of that plastic piece and then gently pull toward you. I recommend starting on the passenger side and working across to the drivers side. You may need help getting it back on as the VIN plate on the far left (near the driver side dash speaker) is a pain. The speakers are 2" and I can't find any after market speakers for it...I guess small tweeters with adapters would work.
