Question about 2002 Chrysler Sebring
The engine turns over and then dies even while I'm giving it gas.
There is a red flasfhing light on the left side of panel and a yellow engine block light on over on the right side of panel. There is poweer but it wont stay running. I've only had the car two weeks and my husband is working out of state. I could really use an educated guess. Thanks!
It's sounds like your vehicle theft system is preventing the car from starting. I think the red light is the security indicator. The yellow engine light indicates a PCM fault is present which requires a scan tool to read. Many times an incorrect key will cause this. If your car has a factory security system (SKIMM) you should have a grey headed kind of a fat key. It would have a chip in it for security. If you try to start your car with the incorrect key, defective key, it will start and stall. After so many tries, the Security module won't let u engage the starter at all. If this happen's, it's dealer time. If you can try another programmed key, it may straighten up, if not it will have to go to the dealer.
