#90 of 269 My 2007 Chrysler Sebring is a NIGHTMARE!
Feb 03, 2009 (6:43 am)
I share the same problem as many of you on this board. I purchased my 2007 Chrysler Sebring January 2008. Within 1 month, my car radio would change stations. Within 1 to 2 months, I noticed my airbag, brake, engine, and seat belt lights go on and off throughout the drive. I took the car to the dealership. They could not duplicate the issue with the radio. They did "repair" the light issue. They said there was a recall notice. After this issue was repaired my car started to feel as if it was stalling. I took the car to the dealership twice. They said there was nothing wrong. This attempted stalling continued until October. My car actually began stalling. The last time was two weeks ago at 8 pm in 39 degree rainy weather. I am a single parent so of course this occurred when my kids were in the car. The car started back up after 10 minutes. I took the car to CARMAX where I purchased the vehicle. They along with a local Dodge/Chrysler dealership said there was nothing wrong with my car. I even mentioned to them that I read everyone's suggestion about a Map Sensor. I was told that there was no codes for a Map Sensor so they could not repair the Map Sensor. I am so frustrated with CARMAX and Chrysler. I am paying for a car that keeps stalling on me!

Feb 12, 2009 (12:55 pm)
my 07 sebring touring started stalling a few days ago. i notice when the engine is idle in drive/reverse/neutral the rpms dip low like every 30sec-2min like its going to stall. eventually it dies after a while of this. also happens while making a slow turn. just dies completely no warning lights or anything. it starts back up no problem. happened as i was pulling into the post office and nearly got rear ended. glad it hasnt happend in an intersection yet! this is very dangerous not to mention embarrasing. bought new in sept 07 and has 9100 miles on it atm. also engine seems to have a gurgle to it when i press the gas pedal - its a really noticeable gurgle if you gun it. also the car seems to have a downshift to it sometimes as i'm slowing somewhere in the 25-30 mph range.
other notable problems include the radio unit not turning on one day but hasnt happened since; and the power lock button on the drivers side door stopped working and needed to be replaced
taking it into the dealer tomorrow 02/13/09
i hope this MAP sensor that has been mentioned is the problem
#92 of 269 2001 Sebring with weird starting issues
Feb 16, 2009 (4:56 pm)
Went out to start the car this morning and it would not start. Moved the shifter from park to neutral and still no start so we pushed it forward about 6 inches and still nothing. We then moved it forward several feet and it started right up. This is not the first time this has happened. It seems to happen 2 to 3 times a year. We have replaced the battery and alternator but are still having this issue...we are thinking it could be a sensor? Does anyone have any ideas?

This may or may not be related. I had a past Sebring that the instruments were intermitant. Was advised it was because of "cold solder joints" and to remove the instrument cluster and lightly re solder each solder joint. I did and this solved a multitude of electrical problems.
#94 of 269 Stalling at low speed
Apr 02, 2009 (11:35 am)
Stalling at low speed issue seems to be one of the most frustrating (and dangerous). Just want to throw an idea.
I noticed that when I start my Sebring 97 and idling RPM is at 750, the car runs OK. If it starts flactuate between 500 and 750, I am in for a "fun" day. It starts stalling when RPM falls below 500. What is going to happen if I increase my idling RPM to 1000 or higher? Will it fix the problem by not allowing RPM to fall below 500? Did anybody try this?

I just bought a 97 sebring- it seems like a great car- but it stalled on me today - it started up again no problem- this happened twice- Do you have any suggestions?

Well, you are up to a "nice" ride. Check all your fuses first (inside and under the hood). Make sure you pluck them all out, not just using electronic check. Make sure that they all correspond where they are supposed to be.
I get to the point to consider that it is not any sensors which are responsible for stalling. Check your driver belt pulley. I think it is a problem.
#97 of 269 My Sebring Stalls
Apr 27, 2009 (10:41 am)
I have a 2000 Sebring JX Convertible. I've already dumped over ten grnad into the car. Now when stopping at stop signs or red light, the car sputters and likes to give out. I contacted Chrysler, and I was transferred to a call center in Mumbai, India. Finding an English speaking employee was harder than trying to get my car fixed. The dealer claims it can be a number of things, then admitted to the fact the the 2.4 liter engines in Chrysler cars have been known to cause problems. Nice to know now. Can anyone give some advice, on what my next step should be? The car runs great, as long as you don't stop.
