Question about 1999 Chrysler Sebring
6cyl jxi model oil light at apx 500 rpm idle. No engine knocking or noise light goes out at 700 rpm on up . Possibilities to low of an idle (car actually stalling) failing oil pump failing oil pressure swicth and or light on dash.
It may be the oil pump. If the gauge is going up when the rpms increase it's probably not the gauge or pressure switch. If the computer senses the oil pressure is low it will shut the vehicle off to try to save it's self from catastrophic failure. Also it may start cranking longer before starting. Thats it building oil pressure before the computer will let it start. Make sure oil is full, clean & thick.

Could be a bad oil pressure switch, or a bad oil pump. Both will cause this issue. Hope it is the switch b/c the oil pump is a costly repair.

piece of cake....
take off the two "star" bolts, one toward the center of the engine above the light assembly and the other toward the fender (it is very long). when you remove them both the entier assembly falls off into your hands and makes changing the bulbs much easier.

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....
