#231 of 269 Fast Idle and no power
Jan 11, 2012 (10:01 pm)
Hello, I have a 97 LXI sebring with the 2.5 v-6. I have had it to a reputable garage for very fast idle of 1400-1500rpm's. When driving it seems to have no power , The garage showes no codes, and is getting good fuel pressure through the lines. I am not sure where to go at this point, it is in excellent condition with 146,000 miles, I did not get into replacing wires and plugs just yet due to the removal of the intake, but am hesitant only to do that because I have never seen that cause a motor to run fast, but thats why I am looking for help, there is an aweful lot I do not know yet, which way should I go to troubleshoot this problem further. Thanks

I've had several older Sebrings. Every time that's happened, it's been a wire or connector has come loose somewhere. Visually inspect everything for that. And/or have it checked for a code. A parts store will do that for free - if you can get it there. If it starts and runs, by accident, have it tested anyway - cause it may do that again. Wish I had a 2007....

Ok everyone here it is my 2001 sebring wouldnt start when the engin was warm... i would disconnect the negitive battery wire,reconnect it and it would start and run fine but when i shut it off and try to restart it i could hear clickig under the hood checked the fuse/relay box opened it and the relays were clicking and you could feel the relays clicking so i replaced 2 or 3 also replaced the camshaft position sensor no luck took it to an auto parts store had them hook it to diagnostic and only read abs huh not that either. took it to an auto mech and they said it was likely the ecc that is the electric control computer in the car bought a new or reconditioned ecc from napa auto parts for $435.93 .Core deposit was $62.69 after core $373.24 then had to bring the car and the ecc to the chrysler dealer to have it flashed /programmed with my car they installed Rick hendricks chrysler jeep dealer in sc savana hwy they charged me a total of $144.30 so all in all $517.54 the car runs starts and makes me love the car again!! hope this helps

Done error code usually means the memory has been cleared or that no codes were found

i have the same problem. i checked recall items and spoke to chrysler corp about it. apparently it was a previous recall, but they are supposed to contact me tomorrow....wed, sept 18th 2012 to remedy. it seems that it is a tpms (tire pressure monitor), which can cause all the other problems, i.e. engine shutoff, electrical issues such as wipers not working, etc. i can repost once i get info if you need me to.
