2002 Chrysler Sebring Convertible wont start because the kill switch wont shut off?

I have a 2002 Chrysler Sebring Convertible. It has a dealer kill switch in it and it will not deactivate so i can start the car. Any suggestions? I have disconnected the battery, tried reprogramming the key and all kinds of other things, and nothing works. there is a little red led light on the kill switch that is not lighting up. normally when you are in the car you press the unlock button and a little beep beep can be heard and then the car will start. now i press the button and it goes click click and nothing happens when i turn the key. We have taken apart the dash to try and follow the wires and cant figure out exactly where they lead. Im not sure if its killing the battery, ignition, or fuel line? Can I override the switch somehow or disengage it. I just want to be able to start the car, I could care less at this point whether or not it is protected by a kill switch. The car has less than 90K miles on it. I have already had to replace, alternators, the transmission the window motors, the window mechanisms(all 4 of them) and countless other things. the kill switch to be the only thing in the car that does its job...all to thoroughly! Help Please!!

Check your alarm. because the alarm system has a engine immobilizer which makes the engine do what you are experiencing. Take the car to the dealer and tell them what is going on and they will reset the car system.

I had the same problem, i had to remove the whole alarm system to get my car to start, when you unattatch the battery cables, the alarm notices the battery drain and sets the alarm off, i have no idea how much the dealership would charge for a new remote, but im sure its pricey, i would recommend just removing the alarm system, temporarily, until you can get a new remote. Good luck and god bless

I have a 1996 Sebring Convertible that ran perfect one day and the next day wouldn't start. It is getting fuel, the battery turns it over fine and if I shoot Starting Fluid into the air intake, it will...

There's a computer controlled circuit that will kill fuel pressure on some cars right at the last inlet valve at the fuel rail.A bad key or ignition can cause this. don-ohio

Under the hood check the starter fuse it a 20 amp and can fail any time. My car has done it twice, thankfully not when i was driving. It just wouldn't start. First time i had it towed and the second time I just checked it and replaced it myself. Still looking for a cause?
