#101 of 110 AC and Heater issues in 2002 Sebring
Jun 15, 2013 (7:02 am)
We had the car in the shop and got the air flow direction door fixed on my wife's 2002 Sebring so that's ok. But there are still issues with the climate control. When she's driving at faster speeds, the AC (or heat, when needed) seems to work fine, putting out good cold (or warm, if heating) air. But when she's driving at slower speeds such as in city traffic or stopped at signal lights, the air coming out when using AC doesn't feel cool at all, and when using the heater, it doesn't feel warm. Should engine rpm affect the climate control output? It doesn't seem to in other vehicles.
Also, and this may be related or not, when she parks and turns the car off, the coolant often boils into the reserve reservoir and out an overflow tube. Does this indicate a faulty thermostat? We did have that replaced but it still happens. The wife says this has been going on since we bought the car.
Trying to get these issues fixed has been a thorn in my wife's side since none of the local garages seem to be successful at it, and it costs a bunch each time we take it in.

Was wondering if you could offer a little guidance on how to find/access it. the fan works in my 04 sebring convertible, but not the a/c. Just had it checked for $75 & they said it was full.

If your fan works,it must not be the resistor.First check panel control switch then thermostat.I had problems with mine.Bought a used one junk yard changed thermostat.Like new.
#104 of 110 a/c switches vents...all by itself
Jul 02, 2013 (2:17 pm)
Hi. I think my a/c has a poltergiest! It blows cold air from the front panel venr, then all by itself, it starts blowing thru the defrost vents. .. then moves to the floor vents. .. switches to warm air. ..then back to cold air. ..then back to the front panel vents. ... etc. .. anyone else? ??? I would love some feedback... Thank you. ..
Its a 2007 sebring convertible

Take out the control panel switch and disconnect and connect if that doesn't do it then sounds like you need a new control panel switch

I have a 2001 Sebring LXI with the 3.0 engine. The compressor will only run in fan position 1. The fan doesn't run while in that position. As soon as you move the blower switch to any higher speed position the fan runs, the ac light goes off, and the compressor shuts off. The compressor doesn't run in defrost either. Anybody have any ideas??? Thanks!!
#107 of 110 Air Conditioning Issue
Sep 20, 2013 (10:47 am)
I have a 2004 base model convertible 110,000 miles. My air conditioning blows cold only when it wants to, but the defroster works ok. Some days the AC works no problem, sometimes it won't blow cold at all, but if I switch to the defroster, that blows cold ok. Any suggestions on what the issue may be?

I am having the same/similar problem. Heat will be blowing out the vents, then you notice it is blowing cold outdoor air. I used a temp gauge in the vent to verify the A/C was not coming on. It also, doesn't matter how I adjust the Temperature, Blower/Fan, Floor/Dash control dials (they are all working correctly). I have had this problem about 2 years. Was told then by a Ford Mechanic it was a door and the dash would have to be removed to a cost of around $600.
They replaced the cabin air filter...said that might work...it was dirty....we will see. Kinda getting worried the mechanic at the dealership doesn't know what he is doing & is going to run my bill up......HELP!!
#109 of 110 Fan Direction Issues
Nov 16, 2013 (11:19 am)
Well, I have the classic "fan only works on high" scenario (in my 04 Sebring; 2.7 v6) and am just waiting on a new resistor. At the the same time, whatever controls the direction of the fan seems to be malfunctioning. For example, if I set it to blow on both upper and lower vents, it comes out the defroster. Is this tied to the resistor as well or is there another problem I need to take care of?
I also have bits of the spongy insulation coming out of my upper vents. Related?
#110 of 110 Air Flow Direction
Nov 27, 2013 (7:43 am)
The problem is on a 2003 Sebring LXi, 3.0 liter, 2 door coupe. With the air flow in defrost or heat, hot air only goes to the passenger side of the windshield or floor. The drivers side gets cold air. My mechanic is starting to look at it but is stumped so far. He did say when the air is on recirc hot air comes out both sides to the windshield and floor. He's talking about having to take the dash apart. I've read through all the other questions and this seems to be the first for this problem. Any suggestions?
