Question about 1996 Chrysler Sebring
Battery is fine just wont stay running does something need to be reset???
SOURCE: Truck wont start
Check the fuel pump run relay under the hood in the power distribution box, it may be sticking and not allowing the pump to run after the key is released on start up, crank and run are 2 separate circuits on the pump.

My Buick Lesabre has the same problem. Did you install a remote car starter to your vehicle? After we put on on ours the problem got worse and worse and worse. Since I had it removed we've only had the security light come on one time and I think that was a fluke.
You could try another key...perhaps the one you have has a little dirt on the chip. But fear not if the car starts....it won't die while you're driving it. The other question: does your security light ever come on and stay on while you are driving?

The security system (VATS/Passkey) installed on these GM cars is anti-owner more than an anti-theft. There are 3 parts involved: 1) The chip-key 2) The lock cylinder 3) The TDM (aka the brain of the system) if any of these parts fails or is even slightly malfunctioning, the car stays stuck where you are and you only get a dealer asking you about 1,000$ to fix it. And all the 3 parts have a quite short lifespan. Way too many people got in this situation (including myself). I don't recommend any partial solution or any used parts as it would happen again way too soon to be acceptable and if it happens 100 miles from home (like it happened to me....) it's a big burden. I finally made it to save my beloved 94 Park Avenue (with the same system that is installed in your car) with a solution that I found on the internet and that bypasses the entire factory security system, all 3 pieces altogether and you can even remove the TDM at the end and use 99c keys without chip. The product I used is at http://newrockies.com and is still working perfectly after 5 years. Don't go to the dealer!

Also check manifold vacuum at idle the best you can hold an idle. I have run into timing belt being one tooth off and engine still ran fine. But the vacuum was low that's how I could tell the belt was a tooth off.
