Question about 1999 Chrysler Sebring

Open Question

1999 SEBRING CONVERT W/ 2.5 V6. Will not start. Turns over but will not fire up.

I HAVE A 1999 SEBRING CONVERT W/ 2.5 V6. PROBLEM: Will not start. Turns over but will not fire up. I have verified there is fuel being pushed while cranking. I have sprayed starting fluid into throttle body and it acts as though it wants to start. I am trying to determine if I need: 1) CRANKSHAFT position sensor 2) distributor (which I understand includes the CAMSHAFT position sensor) 3) If it is possibly a key fob issue 4) something I am not aware of... I also just acquired the 6 book set of manuals from the dealership (not my year - they are 2000) that I hope will be accurate enough. Your thoughts are greatly appreciated. Respectfully, Mark

SOURCE: Crank sensor and camshaft sensor

The crank sensor is in the top of bell housing of the transmission towards the back of the engine compartment. The cam sensor is built into the distributor.

If you're not hearing a click from the starter check for a starter relay. May be burned out! DO you hear the fuel pump kick in when you turn the key on? If not something might have triggered your security system and locked you out!

I have a 1997 sebring lxi. It now will not turn over. I sprayed starter fluid in the intake and it turns over. I changed the fuel pump, fuel filter, and the relay. What else could it be?


Do you hear the fuel pump coming on normally comes on for approx 10 sec. when you turn key on, if no pump noise fault is still in fuel system, check the fuse and wiring, check for trouble codes, check injectors, etc

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....

1999 fire bird wont start


Sounds like a fuel problem, when was the last time the fuel filter was chg.? If that is not an issue, than a fuel pressure test is in order, It should have around 48 to 50 p.s.i.
