Customer Question
I have an 2008...

I have an 2008 sebring, today the horn would intermintly go off for a 1 or 2 second beep, then it went off for 3 minutes. nothing I tried would get it to stop. then while driving my car would lose power, all electric worked, it was like there was no gas going to engine.

Mechanic's Assistant: Has the vehicle turned into a gas hog? And how does it start -- same as usual?

Gas mileage, good but a few time it seemed like it took a few seconds longer that usual to turn over

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Sebring yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes my self, looked at all fuses they seemed fine. have not tried anything yet. just checking boards to see if anyone has had same problem.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Fuse tray seemed in engine compartment seemed like it was a little loose, but don't know if that's normal.

Hey how are you,I will try to help you with this issue

You will need a factory scanner or equivalent to run a diagnostic scan & retrieve fault codes from the Vehicle modules and based on these fault codes we can pull up a Pin Point troubleshoot
and be accurate on it ,If you do get it scanned ,you can post the fault code back here for me and I can help you further on it and be more accurate .

PCM,(power terrain module) are common issue on these cars and with the symptoms you are describing ?

click on link to view pdf file for location of pcm and also make sure you check the pcm connector for any water intrusion or backed out pins making poor connection

you can buy crc electrical contact cleaner to spray the connection and retest

this a website they will rebuild the pcm module for you and when you get it back it will be plug and play ,no scanner necessary to install it

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.
