Chrysler Sebring Problems

The Chrysler Sebring is a series of cars which were available from 1995 to 2010. Whether it is an older or newer Chrysler Sebring model, Chrysler Sebring problems can vary from codes being displayed to use of features and functions. Apart from this there may be several internal components which can fail or display signs of failure and need to be diagnosed and repaired when necessary. Any of these issues can cause the operator to have questions.

To know more about Chrysler Sebring problems, listed below are common questions answered by Experts.

Why does a 1998 Chrysler Sebring LXI stall without warning and the engine shuts down then restarts immediately or after 10-15 minutes?

This is a common problem due to a faulty crankshaft position sensor. Typically when this sensor is in the process of failing prior to complete breakdown, it can result in the above described intermittent stalling. With the passage of time, the symptoms worsen where the Chrysler Sebring fails to start or remain running. Hence to tackle this problem proactively before it gets worse, the crankshaft position sensor should be replaced. Another common cause for this issue is a defective ignition distributor.

What does the code P1494/95 mean on a 2002 Chrysler Sebring and how can the problem be corrected?

Both the P1494/95 codes are indicative of a fault with the Leak Detection Pump (LDP). This pump can be found under the Chrysler Sebring mounted to the EVAP Canister close to the fuel tank. The vacuum lines to the LDP should be carefully inspected for cracks, holes or loose/missing connections. Next the electrical connector to the LDP should be inspected for loose or broken wires. If the visual inspection is fine, the problem could be a faulty pump which can be resolved through replacement.

Why do the dashboard lights flicker when the Chrysler Sebring comes to a stop? Is this a relay problem?

The flickering of lights is usually indicative of a poor battery connection or an instrument cluster failure. To try and resolve this issue, the battery connections should be cleaned and tightened. If this does not help, the power or ground at the cluster needs to be monitored when the problem occurs. If the power and ground connections are fine during the Chrysler Sebring problem, the instrument cluster should be replaced. Used clusters can be obtained online to save money as long as it has clocked some mileage to avoid reprogramming.

Why is no heat being generated within the 1997 Chrysler Sebring cabin?

Ideally the heater hoses should circulate warm/hot or hot/hot air based on the temperature of the engine. If it is not, it signifies that the heater core is either partially restricted or the fins are disintegrating. Despite flushing, debris such as hair or leaves could still be clogging the air flow. The replacement of the heater core is time consuming and can take 8 hours since the dashboard needs to come off to remove the HVAC housing. It also requires the AC to be evacuated since the lines have to come off at the evaporator to remove the HVAC housing. An experienced technician would take approximately 7 hours with training, repetition, correct tools and a lift. For an amateur it can take over 10 hours.

What could cause a 2002 Chrysler Sebring to sputter and stall with a red dash light flashing at the left side of the tachometer.

The problem is most likely a faulty computer chip in the key or the receiver module. The red flashing light is originating from the security system and it should be checked for fault codes.

How can faulty dash speakers be removed and replaced on a 1998 Chrysler Sebring?

The top panel of the dashboard needs to come off to access the speakers. To do this, the instrument panel top cover should be removed then the screw from the right side of the top cover. The top cover ends should be pried to disengage the clips. Next the rear edge of the top cover should be lifted using a trim stick along the rear edge. While lifting the rear edge, the top cover should be slid forward to disengage front clips after which the top cover can be removed. To remove the right or left speakers, the two retaining screws should be removed to lift out the speaker and disconnect the wire connector.
