I too have an 05 Sebring. Just within the last 3 weeks I have ben getting water build up on the passenger side. After pulling the seat and removing the carpet for a second time to dry it all out, I have traced the leak to come from the evaporator housing firewall "interface"to the engine compartment. There is a foam seal (between the housing and the firewall inside the car) that is not sealing anymore. At one point all the drain water was coming inside rather than draining outside. I Tugged and pulled the seal a little bit and was able to get about half the water to drain outside. All this was after inspecting the drain tube (out side of firewall) was clear and clean. The car only has 29,000 miles and the ac cranks out cold air. I have had two mechanic friends tell me it must be the evaporator. If the evaporator was the problem, it would not work and blow cold air. I am convinced it is the foam seal but can not confirm without pulling the dash all apart to remove evaporator housing. Please tell me that you had this same problem and how you got it fixed

#82 of 110 HVAC door problem
Nov 10, 2010 (3:36 pm)
Didn't really know what to title this question. Problem: the air/heat blows only through the dash ports...turning the switch to defrost, feet, or inbetween will not change the direction of the air flow to those ports. Mechanic says the switch is working, sending signal to some kind of computer module that in turn is not sending signal to the door which pivots to change the direction of the airflow. He says the part available from Chrysler is around $600. Not acceptable. He also said that by crossing the switch with a wire they are able to get the door to move, so an option might be moving it to the defrost/feet position and let it stay. I'm not sure of the name of that "module" or I would look it up myself. Has anyone had this issue crop up?
BTW, I had the same problem with the blower switch and with the heat not working. They replaced the resistor and flushed the cooling system and it blows hot now.

Found out the mechanic thinks I need a new body control module (BCM), about $650. Does this seem reasonable?

Try running your question past the folks in the Maintenance & Repair Costs topic - they should have some input for you.

#86 of 110 No heat at my feet
Apr 03, 2011 (12:16 pm)
I just purchased a 2007 Sebring and I can't get heat down to my feet. The heat blasts on the windshield and defrost even though I close the vents. How do I get heat to my feet, they freeze while I suffocate. Also, is there a quick fix for cruise control not working?

The HVAC control module seems to be a common problem with these cars. When the module goes bad, the system behaves erratically. Easy fix - replace the module (module is the circuit board behind the control dials). Pops out of dash. Bad news - part is dealer only, about $350.

This is a symptom of the HVAC control module failing. It behaves erractically when it goes bad. Easy to replace, but part is about $350 from the dealer. The module is the unit with the control dials on it. Pops out of dash.
