When you put the key in the ignition, try giving it a few good taps right on top of they key. That usually does the trick for me. Also, always be sure the wheels are straight before turning off the ignition. For some reason, parking with the wheels turned often causes this lockup problem for me. It can be a pain, but just keep tapping and it should unlock.

First, make sure the shifter is all the way up in Park.. Get hold of the steering wheel, turning it back and forth as you try and turn the key on. Let me know if that works. If it don't, you probably need a new key and tumbler.

Engine light on. Code says injector something,. nechanic says not insignificant problem.... what should I do


If you have confidence with your mechanic and the car runs fine, drive it until you have a problem. The Check Engine light can be on for a very long time if nothing else is wrong. The only way to correctly turn off the engine light is to correct the fault then reset the light. If you just reset the light and fault still exist, the light will come right back on. To reset the light you disconnect the battery for about 5 minutes. The other option is to have the fault fixed if you feel it is necessary.

Chrysler sebring 2001 key wont turn


1) Wrong key 2) Shift lever out of park or neutral 3) If steering is locked, it is exerting too much pressure on the ignition, try jiggling it while turning key.

My 2001 sebring wont start. I turn the key and it


you could very have a transponder key that has failed to let the circuit complete to start the car. check that with your local locksmith. also try to unlock your doors manually with key , on the driver side and turn to unlock at least three times, i know it sounds stupid but your car has a passive alarm built in that will prohibit it from starting sometimes because it was designed so well.:) good luck.

2001 sebring radio only scans. Wont stop on station


Had this problem in mine, I would say try rebooting your computer in your Car. how ?1.)removing both battery terminals 2.) go in and turn the key (this will drain power in any circuits) 3.) turn key off 4.)then for around 30 seconds then reconnect battery.

sounds like your starter ruined your flywheel. replacing the flywheel is not easy. also expensive. call a couple of tranny shops to get an estimate.

97 sebring lxi, 2.5L - car died leaving driveway. wont start. been running fine, no noises, hiccups and nothing when it died. battery good, changed plugs, fuel pump buzzes when key is turned, engine cranks...


first thing you got to do is determen weather its electrical or fuel problem, you can take a test light and hook to a ground and the light end to a spark plug and see if it lights while someone turns over engine, if it lights you got spark. if its got spark, on to fuel, take fuel pressure test, don't think because you can hear pump working does not mean it is, it can sound like it is but its not, at least putting out enought pressure, not the correct amount it will not run. pumps will go out just that way with no warning at all.
