SOURCE: 1999 Chrsler Sebring LXi v6 2.5L. Car dies.

I had the same problem with my 1999 Chrysler Sebring 2.5L V6 Convertable. It started stalling at intersections; would lose RPMs' and die while driving it; and would not start unless it sat for a few minutes. Once it started, you'd have the scenario start all over again...

I hadn't kept up my maintenance schedule like I usually do, so I did the usual; I replaced my spark plugs and wires, changed the oil and filters, ect...

Finally, after it doing the same thing and wasting a ton of time and frustration on the side of the road, I took it to a mechanic that put it on his $9,000 diagnostic machine. The verdict; CRANK SHAFT POSITION SENSOR!

The Haynes Manual will tell you wrong on its location for the 1999 Lxi 2.5L V6 convertable; it is NOT LOCATED BEHIND THE BATTERY TRAY. The crankshaft position sensor is actually located about 4 to 6 inches below the distributor, which is about dead center of the motor, on the transaxle housing.

You do have to take off the tire and the skirt cover to get to it. I had to purchase two long socket extensions just to get to the bolt that mounts the sensor to the transaxle housing; but it was well worth the 20 bucks...

All in all, it took me three hours to find the damn thing, and then to figure out what I needed to take the old one off and get the new one installed.

The $65 dollars that I spent to find out what the problem was is worth it....

Now, the car runs better than ever....

SOURCE: how to replace driver side mirror on a 2007 chrysler sebring ltd

Once you take of the door panel, you should have two or three nuts behind the black triangler shape cover..Once you take them off, you just reverse the procedure...To take the door panel off, you may need a flat head screwdriver, and a phillip screwdriver..You may have two or three screws to take off..One is by the door handle..One may be under the window switch..which you can pop that off with the flat head screwdriver...Then just pop the panel off, and disconnect all the connections..Should be no more than 3....Goodluck..

SOURCE: 1999 Chrysler Sebring Convertible code P1495. I

Code 1495 = Leak Detection Pump Solenoid Circuit

Remove the connector from the solenoid (should be on the back wall, just to the drivers side of the air-hat). You will have the solenoid to check and the harness. What you want to measure is the voltage coming from the harness and the resistance of the solenoid.

Turn the key to the "ON" position but do not start the motor; the voltage at the connector should be at least 10V or more,.now, check the resistance of the solenoid (should be around 35 ohms).

Hope helps.

replacing the fuel pump relay is one thing but what about the (ASD auto-shut down) relay

additionally...

  • what engine size?
  • what transmission?
  • any codes?
  • does the pump run KOEO?
  • Do you have spark?
  • What is the cranking speed?

Hi Heather, I'm glad to help! Heather, provided you have a good vacuum going to the Map Sensor and wiring and connectors are good. That would be the first thing I would replace. But, if after checking wiring and connectors and a good vacuum you replace the map sensor and still have the code I would have it check out for a possible (PCM) Powertrain Control Module. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Heather!
