So far, so good. Personally I would stay away from a "remanufactured starter" as we tried one and it turned out to be bad and the fuse continued to blow (thankfully an experienced Chrysler mechanic heard the starter soleniod making weird noises and immediately relaized that the remanufactured starter was no good) - once we replaced it with a brand new OEM stater we have not had a problem at all. It is a nice feeling getting into my Sebring and knowing it is going to start right up. It has been over 2 weeks since the OEM stater has been installed, the vehicle has been started and driven a lot in those 2 plus weeks and all is well. It was the best $200 I ever spend on a repair - as now my wife can drive the car without me worrying that the fuse will blow.

Okay, so my battery died and, no surprise, once I got someone to jump it, my clock was reset. This car is borrowed from my dad and I want to try fixing the clock thing on my own, but I don't know how to do it. Anyone know how to adjust the digital clock?

my dashboard lights go out every so often. Lights on instruments still work but back light to odometer doesn't light up. The odometer still works. There is no apparent timing or temp issues. The background lights just go off and can stay off even after the car has been turned off for a few hours. The next morning they may come back or at any point. This started about 3 weeks ago. The lights have gone out approx. 4 times since then. Any ideas before I take it to the dealer to repair and get taken to the cleaners?!

I have had the same problem with my 2007 Chrysler Sebring for over 1 month. Took it to the dealer and they said it would be $600+ to fix. I can't believe this type of problem would be something Chrysler wouldn't stand behind!!
will certainly NOT be looking at Chryslers when the next car purchase is to be made.
Been a car owner for 30 years and NEVER had this problem. Bad bad bad craftmanship.

Never checked back here... sorry about that! well, there's a new sellenoid (I know that's not spelled right), a new (rebuilt - can't afford new) starter, and a new battery (just be be sure since winter was coming). So far, things are working fine, however, when I turn the heat off, there is STILL a funny noise coming from under the hood, like a bit of a crackle or sizzle as it powers down. My car has done this since the beginning of time, and so I'm not too worried about it. It had 2 miles on it when I bought it ('02) and now it has over 76,000 (I don't drive it far). Not the big concern is the control arms or whatever they're called. They have been replace ever two years for the last 5, and I'm on my 4th set of tires because of it. If I could stop pouring money into this car, I'd be able to save a little and buy a different used car, but they all have their problems. Not going to by another Chrysler though, no matter how much I like the looks!!!!

I have a 06 Sebring that's doing the same thing.. Did you figure out the problem?? I think it's the starter but I'm not sure..

It is just the 20 amp fuse blowing. My car has stopped doing it for some reason, but
I am still carrying a supply of the fuses.

The 20amp starter fuse kept blowing in my 2001 LXi until I replaced the remanufactured starter (which was bad) with an OEM starter - Since then (September 2011) I have had no more blown starter fuses, and no issues with my Sebring Convertible.

Took it to the dealer but they could diagnose the problem. Of course the lights were working on that day. Nothing registers on the computer as an issue. They didn't work yesterday but are fine again today. Crazy! Waiting till they go out for an extended period to take it to the dealer or another shop. No other fuses are blowing.
