#208 of 252 96 sebring will not run
Aug 25, 2011 (6:10 am)
i have a 96 sebring jxi convertable, the car will start and shut down after about 4 seconds of running, the headlights are flashing and a small red light is also flashing on the dash. i think its a security problem anyone have any ideas on how to reset or isolate the problem.
the car will crank and not start if you do not turn the key totally off, but if you turn the key to off, then the car will start and run for the 4 seconds

Try unlocking the car from passenger side door...otherwise go into dealer and just ask the Service Manager

Do you have and after market alarm system? Sounds like your alarm system ignition cut out is kicking in. Dispable the alarm system and see it that helps

I have a 1997 Chrysler Sebring. It did not run for about three months because i was out of town. i just got it working now. The car runs fine while it is cold. As soon as the temperature reaches halfway the car will hicup and eventually stall. If i pour cold water into the radiator after a few miuntes it will start. Does anyone have any idea what could be the problem. All help and suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Check the motor mounts mine was making some weird noises there also
have a video of the sound here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LfN8HgU5Ero
well hopefully it wasn't as much of a pain in the $$ as mine was after some parts modifying and some grinding to the frame there in now and quiet as a church mouse

It acts like it is the alternator, however we have replaced it along with the battery, after charging it will run fine for a while then the lights dim, radio shuts off, lights go out and it starts losing power. I am completely stumped. Any one have any ideas?
