My wife is having the same problem with her Sebring now. Had it to the dealer and they cannot figure out what the problem is. Can you tell me what it is they fixed on your car?

My wife has a 2003 Sebring coupe Lxi. Hers did something similar in the snow...the car suddenly flipped on the battery light while she was on the highway and I had her pull off in a parking lot, so I could check it out. When I got there I put a meter on the battery to check it out. The alternator was messed up and I was getting 18 volts at the battery. Inside the car smelled like electrical stuff was burning, which was the fan since she had it on high. In an effort to not further ruin the battery and car's electrical system I unplugged the alternator regulator (small ~4 wire connector on top), which immediately stopped charging and we drove the car home. I proceeded to check everywhere what the exact problem was because the next day I plugged the regulator back in and the car was fine. It continued to be intermitten and finally I replaced the alternator with NAPA's top end rebuilt alternator (didn't sell a new one). This lasted 1 mile from where I replaced it. To make a long story short NEVER buy a rebuilt alternator for this car. I had an alternator and starter shop check both the original and the rebuilt and they both had bad stators, which he informed me can only be purchased by buying a brand new alternator (which is not usually the case). What this means is a rebuilt likely has a bad stator and they did not replace it and it is usually an intermitten problem that pops up in cases like yours...high humidity/rain.

#154 of 195 Cruise Control keeps turning off
Dec 22, 2010 (12:13 pm)
I just purchased a 2005 Sebring Sedan in really good condition, but a lot of miles - about 143K. When I first turn the car on, the cruise control stays on for about 2 minutes and then turns off and I can't get it to turn back on. If I turn the car off and then back on, I can get it to on again for about 2 minutes before it turns itself off. While it is on, it engages and cruises until it turns off. Has anyone else experienced this problem or know what causes this? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
#155 of 195 2001 Sebring Starting issues: dimming interior lights/gages not head lights
Jan 01, 2011 (3:01 pm)
I have 2001 Sebring will not start. Battery is full. When the ignition is engaged the lights in the interior dim out, the radio, outside temp display goes dead and starter will not engage (solenoid) The head lights stay bright and do not dim down when the ignition is engaged. I am not sure where to start tracking this issue (ground?) Any help would be great. V-6 2.7
