Question about 2002 Chrysler Sebring

1 Answer

Engine keeps dieing

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.

3.7L gas or Diesel? (know what you are driving?)
jump start it , call AAA and do that.

battery lugs all white with corrosion, clean them.

cranking takes 20 times the current than headlights. or more diesel.
and 1000s times DING power. so means nothing.

did you mean, the Charge lamp was ON, just before the ENGINE
died, lamp #10 , THAT MEANS the charge system failed.
and that cause the battery to DISCHARGE.
and then engine must die. (all cars)
charge the battery and cure #10 lamp warning true cause.
never drive and ignore warning lamps if you in fact did.

how'd I do?

Idles roughly, then low when stopped or in park, then dies. Decreasing gas mileage. Slow to accelerate


Sometimes that's caused by a vacuum leak near the manifold area.

Sometimes air in the coolant will cause an idle problem. Air will keep the air temp sensor from sending proper info.
Hope this helps.

93 ford thunderbird LX dies as if starving for gas after I start it


You may have cooked the fuel pump.
Cars today use a fuel pump in the gas tank. The pump uses gasoline for both lube and to help keep the pump cool. Anytime the tank is below 1/4 the pump is working harder and running hotter than normal. If you drove it for 2 hours low on fuel, the pump may have died.
I would check the fuel pump relay to make sure the pump is getting power, if it is not, you can bypass the relay to verify it is not a pump problem.

Trouble starting engine


I had a similar problem on my 03 SportTrac. It would start, but the gradually stall, losing rpms until it died. If i kept the rpms up with the throttle, it was fine and was ok driving...only died at idle. It turns out it was a leak in a vaccuum hose elbow. It is very common in older fords with this type of engine. From the front of the engine, look at front and left side of the engine block. There is a small plastic vaccuum line the runs from the front of the engine block just below the upper engine coolant hoses, alongside the passenger side of the block and into the rear. The elbows in the line are rubber and tend to split.
