Sorry. I meant to type that it was my 2002 Sebring. Good luck to all with heater issues!

I don't see how replacing a hose would get the heat working again unless it had a major leak and antifreeze was running everywhere.
Back flushing the system may have dislodged something blocking the flow or they might have also replaced a stuck thermostat while doing the other work.
#59 of 110 2002 Sedan headlights on........heat off
Feb 19, 2008 (5:10 am)
I have a 2002 Sedan 4cyl. I have the heater/blower problem where only number 4 works ( 1,2,3 nothing). I am picking up the resistor pack tomorrow.
Next problem, the heat works great except when I turn on the lights......it blows cold out from the front defroster whenever I turn on the headlights. Also, the rear defrost only work if the head lights are off. I cant drive at night if its cold cause the windows fog up so bad I cant see.
Does the resistor pack have something to do with this?
I have recently replaced the battery.
#60 of 110 Coolant boiling!!!! Help!!
May 15, 2008 (11:44 am)
Hi, i'm not even sure if this is the right section but here goes. Yesterday after i had just driven my 97 jxi, i turned the enginef of only to hear a boiling sound.
I pooped the hood and realised that the coolant was bubbling...almost as if it was boiling like water. It eventually stopped after about 5 minutes of leaving the hood open.
It did the same thing today after a 15 minute city drive. However didn't do it after another 15 minute drive on the highway. My car is showing now signs on the dash board of overheating.....
any ideas.....i just want to get an idea of what it could be before i take it to a mechanic for them to tell me something outrageous...
Thanks In Advance

It could be something as simple and cheap to fix as a stuck thermostat. They're not too difficult to replace.
Other things that would cause it to overheat might be a clogged radiator. That would require removing the radiator, taking it to a radiator repair shop, where they would take it apart and boil it out. It's a bit of work but weigh that against the cost of a new radiator.
Also, a low coolant level would cause overheating. That might mean that there's a leak somewhere in the system. Check the coolant level after it has cooled down for at least 4 hours or more. I don't know why an overheating issue wouldn't display a warning light on your instrument panel.

A reporter is hoping to talk with consumers who bought purchased a car from 2004-2006 because of the incentives manufacturers were offering, such as employee pricing. Please respond to ctalatiedmunds.com before Friday, May 16, 2008 with your daytime contact information.
#63 of 110 No heat Heater
Oct 02, 2008 (3:48 pm)
I have a 98 and have replaced the “Blower Motor Resistor” for the third time this summer. The blower works fine, but the new problem is there is no heat when I need it. The blower motor speed works fine, the knob that directs the air to the different areas works well; the air exchange knob also works. BUT the heat control knob rotates from cool to hot with a noticeable change in sound form cool to hot, but no heat.
My question is this, is there a valve or relays somewhere that directs the hot water into the heater core? We had a massive water leak on the passenger side that shorted out the radio fuse and flooded the AMP under the passenger seat. I had to remove it, clean and dry it out and replaced the radio fuse. It works fine now but could there be another reason why the heater gives no heat?
Thanks for any advise you can lend.

ok i have the 01 LXI coupe with 3.0....on all other sebring models there is a bleeder value for the cooling system...if you don't bleed the system you will not get heat.
i have this same heating problem for over two years now and no one can fix it.
#65 of 110 A/C Compressor won't turn off
Nov 30, 2008 (1:55 pm)
I have a 2000 Chrysler Sebring JXI Convertable.(160,000 miles) My A/C won't turn off and if i turn the blower on a lower setting or off, it will freeze up. I know that the A/C compressor is constantly on, and ive tried pulling the A/C fuse out, relays but it won't turn off. (i did turn off the a/c button). Even if i am using the heater, it will eventually freeze up and no air will come out. I can see that the low pressure lines for the A/C have ice covering it. I have not had this problem for a long time. I would like to be able to turn the A/C off for better gas mileage too. ANY SUGGESTIONS?

You may need to reset the PCM (Power control Module). I'm having a heat problem where I have no heat, unless I rev the engine, then it's great. Fluid is good, and it's not overheating sitting idle (indicating pump problem). I found info in my public library's online auto info (Chrysler bulletin# 24-002-04 Rev.A), that says to have the car in room temp of 50-80 degrees F (whole car should probably be warm), and disconnect the M-1 fuse for 10 minutes to erase the DTC's (diagnostic trouble codes),. Reinstall the fuse and start the car to initiate the HVAC system calibration. Allow to run 5 minutes for calibration to complete before shutting off car.
I just wish I could find where fuse M-1 is located.
