Chrysler Sebring Touring: I have an 07 Sebring. 4 cyl. It started…

Customer Question
I have an 07 Sebring...
I have an 07 Sebring. 4 cyl. It started running rough, then stalled. Now when I turn the ignition on--the starter just keeps going and won't stop till I turn the car off. Mechanic says no spark. Cam and crank sensors are new OEM.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
If the engine does crank then the powertrain control module is at least awake. If you have no spark it could be a number of things including failed coil drivers in the PCM, wiring, a cam/crank sync issue, a blown fuse or internal TIPM issue causing lack of power on the IOD circuit.
The first step in diagnosing the problem is to check for fault codes. Any issue causing a loss of spark should set a code. Do you know if any codes are setting?

The only code was a low voltage after much cranking. I am investigating the causes of loss of spark. I changed the plugs, they were in pretty bad shape. If I get spark, will the starter operate properly?
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago
I'm sure the starter is operating as intended. If the engine doesn't start it will crank for about fifteen seconds.

So I have new cam sensors, crank sensor(OEM) If the wires are good, fuses good, then it is cheaper to send in PCM to be repaired/replaced than to have mechanic "diagnose" the problem. At that point, if it is not the PCM, then it is the TIPM. In which case it is $108 for a replacement that needs to be "programmed" or $600 for a new one that can just plug in. Does that sound about right? How could I program it?
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago
Companies that claim to repair or rebuild modules have shown very poor quality. You can send it out if you wish but it would be cheaper and easier to pay an hour's worth of diagnostic time at a shop if you're unable to diagnose it yourself.
A replacement TIPM does not need to be programed.

The code that read was 562--low voltage, which I read could be battery, alternator or the TIPM. I found a TIPM (refurbished) which is for the AG or AL TIPM. These are said to fit 07 sebring 2.4 4L. However MY TIPM is the AH unit. Do you think would be a problem?
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago
The last letter is just the revision level, if the rest of the part number matches then it's the same part.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
