This problem is caused by a leaking hydraulic pressure valve in the Active ABS system you van is equipped with. The ABS produces its own pressure and can apply the brakes with no brake pedal input from the driver, so the system has pressure always, if the valve that supplies brake pressure doesn't seal the brakes can lock up. You must most likely replace the ABS hydraulic control module under the hood to correct this. They sell them as rebuilt units at parts stores like Napa and Carquest.

According to the Chrysler manual the heater/AC control unit bulbs can only be serviced by an "authorized service center after removal from vehicle" If your comfortable taking it apart to look anyway it probably can't hurt.

SOURCE: Possible plugged AC drain (Chrysler Sebring)

If you are getting clear liquid, with the A/C on, then you have a clogged drain tube. If it is green or reddish, you have a bad heater core. Should be able to have someone blow out the drain tube to clear it out.

SOURCE: 2000 Chrysler Sebring windsheild washer pump

check the fuse panel for weak or blown fuse in the wiper/washer circuit if that all checks ok then using a test light or volt meter then find the washer pump leads at the bottom of the washer pump itself and with the circuit activated make sure you have 12 volts going to it also check the ground wire to it to insure proper ground if voltage is present then remove the motor assembly from the washer housing and relace the motor

My 2005 Chrysler Sebring started and turned off three times now, it just has a blinking red light?

Anti-Lock Warning Light (ABS) - If Equipped This light monitors the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS) described elsewhere in this manual. This light will come on when the ignition key is turned to the ON position and may stay on for as long as four seconds. If the ABS light remains on or comes on during driving, it indicates that the Anti-Lock portion of the brake system is not functioning and that service is required, however, the conventional brake system will continue to operate normally provided that the BRAKE warning light is not on. If the ABS light is on, the brake system should be serviced as soon as possible to restore the benefit of Anti-Lock Brakes. 24 7 Locksmith Orchard Park NY 716 710 7400 Locksmith Orchard Park NY
