#50 of 64 new 07 sebring owner w/ no car knowledge
Feb 18, 2009 (10:00 am)
could you perhaps link me to compatible mygig systems, with and without navigation? i ran a search on bay, but as i have little to no knowledge of cars, i couldn't ascertain which systems were compatible with an 07 sebring (and i didn't see it written anywhere).
to all 07 sebring owners...
also, im looking for chrome pieces for my exterior (grille, door handles, pillars, etc.). can anyone direct me to a legit website from which i can purchase these?
last but not least, is the base 07 sebring compatible with HID headlights? if so, where can i purchase HID headlights that will fit my sebring? if not, how and where can i convert my sebring so that it is compatible.
thanks for your time.

On the MyGIG question just go to eBay and type in something like "mygig sebring". There are currently 23 MyGIG units and related items being sold.
Be sure you get one that is compatible with your 07 Sebring. It uses a low speed Bus. If the description doesn't mention the Bus speed ask before bidding.
MyGIG radios run on two different Bus systems, a low speed Bus (CAN B) and a high-speed Bus system (CAN C). MyGIG radios designed for a high-speed electrical bus will not work on a vehicle with a low-speed bus, and vice versa.
Also, the MyGIG RER includes the nav. Be sure yours includes the GPS antenna. The REN version does not have nav.

thank you for that information. i now know to look for RER (navigation) and to make sure it has a GPS antenna.
and REN doesn't include navigation.
thanks a lot!
#54 of 64 Comparisons between the 2010 Sebring Limited 3.5 and Concorde/300M

I have noticed that the 2010 Sebring Limited has gone to a six-speed along with its 3.5 motor along with a much higher level of trim. Seems like Chrysler may be trying to reach back for some of the old LH market. My dealer certainly seems to have this opinion - says they are putting a lot more value back into the car.

The 3.5L Sebring was already a 6-speed. I have it in my 2007 Limited. I'm wondering what the higher trim level is. My 07 has leather seats, shift knob, brake handle and steering wheel.
One of my favorite things about the whole car is the MyGIG with nav. That thing keeps me entertained for hours on a long trip. I modified it to be able to play a DVD while in motion. Passenger only, of course.

I've got the same problem with the same car. I also bought mine from a rental establishment. Do you recall the process and pricing for the evac sensor? Thanks!

I had taken it in for service under warranty because of the noise. They tried to tell me it was something else at first, "made an adjustment", but afterward the noise was still there. I took it back and had to go to management before I got a transmission specialist from the shop (dealer) to test drive it with me. We reproduced the sound and they subsequently figured it was an air/vacuum issue and isolated it to the evac sensor.
You have to kind but firm in insisting they look at the air/vacuum portion of the system. Good luck.
#59 of 64 2001 Chrysler Sebring sedan 2.7 engine clattering
Dec 04, 2010 (7:01 pm)
I just bought a 2001 Sebring Sedan with the 2.7 engine. I am a home mechanic- only worked on my own cars but have never worked on a 2.7.
I bought it from a small towing company which had picked it up as a "donation vehicle" and sold it instead of scrapping it.
Here's the little history I have of the car from what they told me:
They thought it had sat and not been driven for at least the previous six months.
The engine was no good because it made a lot of clattering noise when it was started. They owned it for about four months and would start it occasionally to move it around in their yard.
They told me the oil pressure light would come on whenever they started it.
The on-site mechanics told me they suspected the cams but hadn't done any work on the engine because the owner felt he would have to replace the engine and didn't want to mess with it so he put it up for sale.
They started it for me but I had them turn it off right away when they said the oil pressure light was on. I did not hear any rod knocking noise or any particular loud clattering, but then the radiator fan was making quite a bit of noise. The guy who started it said he heard it clattering.
It has been delivered to me and I am not sure what to do or where to start so I am looking in forums for suggestions. Got any?
BTW, I have been researching and have familiarized myself with the "sludge" problem found in the 2.7 L engine. I am wondering if I should start with the timing belt based on reports of the tension spring failing due to low oil pressure. Here's my problem; I have never had to replace a timing belt before so this would be my first time. I'm not sure how or where to begin so I need basic and clear directives.
