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.
#186 of 215 Honking horn, flickering dash lights
Mar 10, 2012 (9:34 am)
I got my 2007 Sebring Sedan in Sept of 2010. It had 63k miles on it, now it has almost 91k. Since getting the car we've gotten; new tires, new brakes, new alternator, 60k mile service done to it and regular oil changes.
My problem is this:
Approximately 7 or so months ago, my car started honking when I turn it on. 3 quick honks (all 3 lasting a total of less than 1 second together). When my headlights are on, the lighting on the console flickers dim - bright. My dome light can't be manually turned on unless the right turn blinker is on. I've taken it to a mechanic for diagnostics, if there is an error it goes by too fast for the computer to register it. I've been told to take it to a dealership to get it looked at, the dealership wants to block out a 2hr time frame and wants over $100 just to LOOK at my car. OH, and not sure if it's related, but; my car also stalls and sometimes dies when I'm at a complete stop (doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason for it) and my brakes occasionally lock up when going around a corner with any speed over like 10mph.
I've searched high and low all over the web for issues like mine. I've seen people say their car randomly honks for prolonged periods of time, dash lights go out or flicker...but nothing of them all together, nothing like what I'm experiencing and no idea what to tell a mechanic to look for if I take it to one. Any ideas? anyone else have issues like this? Help!

#188 of 215 1997 Sebring JXi convertible Dashboard lights
Mar 23, 2012 (8:31 am)
My 'BRAKE' light, ABS light, check engine and alternator light keeps coming on. I have installed new front & rear brakes and rotors, plus I have a new ECM Computer put in, but these lights still come on. I keep getting the run around, but in the process of spending too much money. What should I do?
#189 of 215 Power seat and a couple of other problems on 98 sebring jxi convertible
Jun 13, 2012 (3:42 pm)
Good day, I just bought a 98 Sebring JXi Convt. and I've noticed a couple of problems. Hopefully some can help. Power Driver Seat: I back and front control is working, however, the adjustment for full seat height, rear seat button adj. and the front of the seat adj. are not working?
Another problem is that the speedo needle occasanally bounces and then operates normally and the tach isn't working. I have found out that the output speed sensor is bad. Could that be causing the speedo and tach problem?
Thanks in advance for your help.
