#170 of 252 2004 Sebring Stalls at Traffic Lights and Stop Signs.
Jul 15, 2010 (9:42 am)
My 2004 Sebring have had the Engine stalling problem since I put ONLY 6,000 miles on it. Mostly in the summer but it have stalled in the cold as well. Especailly when i get off the Highway and come to a city stop light it almost always shut off. Also the REAR DEFROST doesnt work when the car is idling. Also the fan relay switch fails every 3 years, meaning I have NO heat in Winter or NO air in Summer. Dont let those rebates lure you in to buying any Chrysler Product nor DODGE they are the same. Imagine trying to make a left turn when and it stalls while a Semi is coming, OMG......It have happened to me, but with a car.

I dont think the car is worth it myself, because something else will go wrong after fixing all that

removed air cleaner to throttle body and can put fuel into the throttle body and car will start and run smooth until of course it runs the small amount of fuel out. car has sat for last few monthes and she parked because of fuel smell, but said it was running fine except for the smell. also when I started messing with it it was out of fuel. got any ideas on what the problem is

Obviously lack of fuel pressure...needs to be pressure tested at engine...then track the loss back from engine to tank....probably a leak where the smell is coming from...try to find it

my 1997 sebring convertible jxi decided all of a sudden not to start, i jump started it, it ran fine til i shut it off i have to keep jumping it, what could be causing this problem? My rear window was busted out and when it rains the inside of my car gets soaked, i thought maybe something got wet that shouldnt have and that is causing my problem, but i am not sure. If anyone knows please tell me

#178 of 252 Security System Problems
Aug 25, 2010 (5:42 pm)
I need help, hopefully someone has had the same problem. I have a 98 Sebring jxi limited convertible. About 2 months ago, it occasionally would start and shut off with in a second or so. I could take the key out and it would start right back up. It did this maybe 4 or 5 times. A week ago while driving the security light came on. Got home next time car started normally and security light was off. Now it is dying more frequently and the security light sometimes comes on and stays on and it is starting to shut the engine down using the security system and wont start for a couple of hours. Is it my key, the ignition lock cylinder, or something else. Dont want to start guessing cause all are expensive fixes. The dealer wants $100 to put it on the computer, but the security light has to be on for him to do it. Thanks for any ideas of what it could be.

I am not sure if the 98 has a chip in the Key, Do you have a spare key to try and start the car with. If the Key is Gray it's got a chip!
