I had that problem with my 98. It took forever to figure it out. It was the antitheft relay. On the 98 it has three relays on the firewall, it is the middle one. All I can say is try that. It's pretty cheap too. It worked for me.

#26 of 63 2006 Chrysler Sebring Touring convertible 2.7L

Our car had 52,000 miles on it and we started to loose compression. We took itto Chrysler and they told us a valve spring broke and the valve stem bent. They were replaced for cylinder #4. That was July 1, 2009. We got our car back after a slow return to us on July 10th drove it and on July 18th we broke down. Car would not start. Then we got going and engine light came on so we had it towed back to Chrysler and they told us oil pump broke because an impeller blade broke inside the pump. The end result is we need a new engine and we only had 53,000 miles on the car. For the Valve spring Chrysler kicked in $400.of the $1200 job. Now for the
$5380 engine they are billing us $2690. Our warranty was only for 36,000 miles but we did not abuse the engine. It wasn't suppose to fail at 53,000. Has anyone had this experience? I really only want to buy American, but now I will have to really pray about my next car.
#27 of 63 2006 Sebring Overheating
Aug 24, 2009 (11:46 am)
I have a 2006 Sebring with a 2.7 V6. My issue is that the car takes a very long time to warm up, but once it does the thermostat gauge continues a steady climb until the car is overheating. The thermostat has been replaced coolant level is good, and I have no ideas on what steps to take next. If anyone knows what the problem could be thank you in advance.

The past history of the 2.7 v6 engine is not very good. Four or five years ago these engines had a sludging problem and problems with the timing chain. I'm not so sure if these issues have been resolved. The local Dodge-Chrysler dealer always has lots of Chargers or 300's with this engine on their lot. I think it's because buyers stay away from this engine. If Chrysler is willing to pay half the cost you're probably better off taking them up on it and replace the engine. Try to get at least a 50,000 mile warranty on the engine. Good luck.
#29 of 63 2.7 L New Water Pump Now No Start
Sep 02, 2009 (8:40 pm)
After installng new water pump now no start. 2002 sebring 2.7L . The timming chain was absolutly positively right on the marks . And just to make shure I cranked it through about 10 to 12 rotations to get the marks to align again. And they were still right on the money. I get 150 to 180 psi compression on all cyls . Cranks good and fast has spark. No codes show up on my OTC genisys. Did try replacing the cam sensor with no results. Any help or coments welcome.

Found the problem . The LH cam sprocket had the wrong reluctor ring on it . It would not sync up with the crank sensor . The cam sprocket has a series on windows cut in it with 1 , 2 ,or 3 groups of window slits in different order the
replacement one I got had them in a different sequence than the original
#31 of 63 2005 Sebring with 2.4 Engine
Sep 06, 2009 (11:11 am)
My daughter has a 05 Chrysler Sebring with about 110K miles. The timing belt broke while driving down the highway, so it died. Took to mechanic and he said it was the timing belt that had broken. Had it replaced about 2 month ago. Now it has started with a humming noise at about 2500 Rpm. What is the best way to isolate the problem. As anyone familiar with the 2.4 knows, you can't even see the drive belt on the engine. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

I have a 2006 Dodge Caravan with the same engine. Timing belt replacement is recommended at 90k in the owner's manual. It is a good idea to change the water pump and maybe even the belt pre-tensioner when the timing belt is changed. See if you can get a good mechanic to ride with you; he may be able to isolate what the problem is after hearing it. Good luck.
