Yep - Mine's been fine since I had the starter replaced with an OEM Mopar unit.
Sure glad the mystery was solved. Went from a 2003 Saab 9-3 Convertible wirh 36,000 miles on it to my 2001 Chrysler Sebring LXi Convertible with over 95,000 miles on it and I couldn't be happier. I love this Sebring - Just an all around nice vehicle (and no cowl shake like in the Saab)

This may be the answer to many of the electrical questions here. I just resolved several related symptoms. I had the charging system light , check engine light going on intermittantly, also teh seatbelt light. I had problems with the converable top opening or closing in a jerking motion or not at all. I also had the transmision shift hard when you slow almost to a stop and then speed back up. Then I noticed like you the the speedometer would bounce up to 15-18 miles per hour mirroring the RPM needle.
All of these symptoms were resolved. There was an internal short in the alternator causing an electric field to be applied through the alternator housing to the frame of the car.
The Speedometer kicking up to 15 MPH caused the top interlock to kick in. it caused the transmission to shift while standing still and the ground reference was changed by the field causing low voltage differential through out the vehichle's systems causing everything else.
I just got my car back yesterday and looked here to see if this was a common problem. It appears that almost everyone's electrical problems could be tied back to something like this.

my 2002 started poping the 20 amp starter fuse last week end and now has stopped. Also the airbag light has come on.
Any one got any ideas?

I sprayed some 'BREAK FREE' into the switchs on the steering wheel a couple of time and now the cruise works find.

What did you do to fix your Chrysler Sebring windshield wipers when they were stopping immediately(not finishing or parking to the bottom of the windshield when turning them off). Was it the windshield wiper switch on steering wheel column or was it the windshield wiper motor park switch that had to be replaced or what did you do to fix it? I have a 98 Sebring LXi and it is doing the same exact thing that you describe. I already replaced the wiper switch on the steering column with new part and still have the same problem and was hoping you could tell me what you did to fix your problem, only thing I knew next to do was replace the windshield motor for wipers. But was not sure if it was something else. Please reply.
