I have a 1996 Sebring Convertible Jxi 2.5L. I want all of you to know that I had this stalling problem, and it was very scary. I stalled on the freeway and thought I was going to get crushed by a semi truck, I also stalled at stops and on normal streets. I thought I probably would die in my car because of this. My mechanics kept scratching there heads and changing parts and I kept paying. They even suggested I take it to the dealership to see if they could figure out the problem. I took it to the dealership and they could not figure out the problem and still charged me $150.00 for nothing. Then my mechanic saw an article that came out in (winter 2006 Tech Magazine) that said the problem looked like other things, but was actually the MAP SENSOR, and the stalling quit. Chrysler has to know about this problem and chooses to play dumb. I love my car, but I will never buy another Chrysler.
I hope this helps some of you with your problem. This is an inexpensive problem that I have at least $1500.00 into for other parts that did not fix the problem.
Hope this helps

I did the same thing. It was the MAP SENSOR!

Tell the service tech to take a close look at the MAP sensor. I recently heard that it can be the source of some frustrating stalling problems.
Thanks for taking the time to alert everyone and possibly saving them a lot of money.
#77 of 269 Chrysler Sebring recall due to stalling
Apr 08, 2008 (2:06 pm)
I just read online that Chrysler has sent out a recall on Sebrings due to an electrical problem that might cause stalling or other issues. "Chrysler will seal the wires for the tire pressure monitoring system" at no cost. However--according to the story I read it is on 2007-08 models only. As we know, this problem occurs in Sebrings from 1998-2008. Mine is a 1999 and after the 4th repair recently, I hope it is ok now. I had the CAM Sensor replaced. I loved by Sebring until the past few months, and unfortunately I cannot financially afford to replace by car right now. I am self employed and the economy has kicked me hard. I will pray the CAM Sensor did the job, and will enjoy my car as long as I can, until I can afford to buy another car that is NOT a Chrysler.

My wife has a 2001 sebring 2.7 and it kept stalling on us and would start back up and one day it would not that time it actually through a code for a camshaft sen., crankshaft sen., PMC (powertrain control module), fuelpump, (which includes our pump, relay, regulator, and filter we found it at advanced the cheapest for $300.00 but be careful they have been recalling the Airtex brand pumps) so it took fuel injection cleaner and reseting the code to get it to started so a week later it stalled on my wife with no warning at all, wile crossing a highway talk about panic she freaked. It would not start so we started with the most obveious and the cheapest which was the cam, crank, then fuel pump twice we returned the first just to make sure we didnt have a bad one it still does not start and it only through the one code and never after that. After you clear the computer it takes 80 miles for this computer to start reading again it never maid that far my next test is a recalled crankshaft harness that melts and grounds out. I just heard about it but if they never reruted it that would be the problem, then I im going to wing it and try the MAP sen. and my car also pulls up the P1684 code so check the conections on the battery it is in front of the driver front tire and your negative turnimal that is bolted to the strut tower by the fuse box under the hood has two wires and to bolts take off the top one and check the hidden one its all a pain but worth checking! If you find anything else out please post it
#80 of 269 spark front three cylinders not back
Jul 06, 2008 (2:26 pm)
I bought a 1997 convertable 2.5L it did not start when i bought it, i am getting spark front three cylinders but not the back. The previous owner just replaced the distributor, plugs, wires, crank sensor and replaced the computer but the computer came from a junk car and from what my friend says at the dealer it is not the right computer. He said the computer has to be year specific. My friend that owns a garage gave me a couple computers but when i tried them i could not get spark at all. I don;t think those computers are for the right year. Now my question is does anyone have any other thoughts before i buy a new computer from the dealer. its only $235 but i do not want to waste my money when it could be something else. Also a friend of mine has a avenger with the same motor and had the same exact problem and he replaced the computer and it runs fine.. thanks ben
