Question about 2000 Chrysler Sebring

1 Answer

I have a 2000 Chrysler Sebring JXi and we were driving out of a restaurant yesterday and we came to a stop sign and it just shut off. No check engine light at the time. We try to start it and it just turns over. My first thought was the alternator but there was not issues with dimming lights, battery, or ect. before hand. The only thing I found wrong was the check engine light came on for like an hour while driving it and turned off later a couple times. And the day before this happened it was running rough when we were at a light. What could this be?

Engine lights are warning lights not to be ignored
could be a warning that the oil was getting low , that the crank/cam sensor was failing, timing belt was failing
now you will have to take it to an accredited service shop to have it properly diagnosed as there are a lot of possible rasons for the failure

Sounds like you need a starter, or you have a loose wire somewhere under the hood.

SOURCE: Chrysler Sebring - acting strange

If you still have this vehicle, this car has a intermittent connection problem in the harness, or at the connections going into the firewall, the reason you're light go up and down is that it is making connection and dropping it, this will be a hard one to repair, as the TECH has to isolate the particular wire that is arcing itself on and off , if this vehicle is not had any collision problems this will help isolating it, the problem with electrical problems is that the repairman is on actual time, he punches on the time clock till repaired, if the reapir is situated to a particular part you may bring CHRYSLER IN TO IT AND THEY MAY PAY SOME OF THE CHARGES, ESP IF THERREIS A SERVICE BULLETIN ON IT, THAT'S ALL I KNOW SORRY, I AM A RETIRED MASTER ASE MECH, THIS IS WHAT I WOULD DO

SOURCE: Hello Experts,

to reset the computer simply unplug the battery for about 30 minutes.

However, you have a different problem I believe. you need to check your plugs and wires/coil packs. A fouled spark plug will cause rough running at any speed.

SOURCE: 1997 Chrysler Concorde just stopped running while

Three things make the engine run. Air, fuel, spark. One or more of those is not present and the engine stops.pull a plug wire off, put a screwdriver in the end, have a friend turn over the engine while u hold the screwdriver near a metal part of the engine(dont touch the wire or screwdriver) look to see if there is a blueish white spark. If no then u have to trouble shoot the ignition. if yes... take off the air filter, spray some starter fluid in the air entrance and try to start. If it starts u have a fuel problem.
If the car has high mileage the timing belt could have broke

One of the belts in my 2000 chrysler sebring jxi convertible hisses as soon as I start the engine and Im wondering which one it is. It is the closest to the oil well.


Not sure which belt it is without looking at engine. Because of year and being you don't know service records I would replace all belts. The timing belt is in side the engine that usually just breaks without warning. The hissing could also be the air conditioner compressor which I think is controlled by that belt

Replacing headlight in 1996 Chrysler Sebring JXI


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.
