SOURCE: My 2004 chrysler sebring electical is not working.

Check around the MAP sensor area for any connections that may have been disturbed while you were replacing the sensor. Most or all of those functions are controlled by the body control module. I would think that a fault like that would show on the scanner readouts.

DO NOT TOP OFF when you fill up.

Few ounce of gas in the EVAP system will cause this problem.


Move your car outdoor.

Disconnect the hose to the charcoal canister.

Let it vent overnight.

Re-connect next morning.

This should vent all the fuel out of the EVAP system.

DO NOT TOP OFF when fuel up.

Have you checked to see if the gas cap is on tight. New cars have a pressurized gas tank. It will set a light if it doesn't seal good.

My 2008 Chrysler 300 Limited has rough idle on cold starts

#1 - do you change your antifreeze every year? #2 - let your vehicle competely warm up before putting your engine under load. If you've got kids, go through starting the car safely step-by-step and send them out to start it - that's how my grandpa got me interested in cars!

Check engine light came on, within minutes it "powered down" stalled, dies and will not start. What could cause this to happen? Did the turn key off/on to get code and "done" appeared.

When the service engine soon light a yellow light (Also called the check engine light or engine management light) is turned on this is to alert you to the fact that Powertrain Control Module (computer) has detected a failure somewhere in the systems it controls you may not feel any difference in the way the engine runs, this can be the transmission or the engine or emission system, there are fault codes set in the modules memory for these faults. What needs to happen now is to have the powertrain control module scanned with a special tool called an OBD2 electronic engine control scanner or a OBD2 code reader. Once the code(s) are read then you must perform the diagnostics for each code and make the appropriate repairs based on the findings of the diagnosis that was performed, this is called doing "Pinpoint" testing.
