2001 Chrysler Sebring Conv - lights on rear view mirror problem

I've had the car in for a number of standard maintennce services several times recently. Though I have a new battery - I started having problems with the car not starting - and having to jumpstart every morning. Last night I looked out at the car and saw that the lights on the bottom of the rear view mirror were on - I can't figure out how to turn them off. The manual shows lots of different mirrors - I didn't see one like mine. I've pressed every button I can find. Anyone know how to get these off? I may need to drive by Chrysler if I can't find a fix. Thanks.

    I have the same problem, and I can't find a dimmer switch anywhere. Light only goes off on the rear view after its drained my battery dry. If I don't get an answer soon, I'm pulling out the bolt cutters and cutting the ^%$#@ connection

Also check to make sure your dimmer switch isn't turned all the way up. if the dimmer is all the way up your interior lights will stay on. check your dimmer switch

Hi your dimmer is located in your headlight switch if turned all the way up it will keep your dome lights on and thus drain your battery.

If I remember correctly, the lights on the rear view mirror on your convertable act as an interior or dome light. They will come on if a door is open, or in your case, a door switch is stuck in the open position. This is rectified by replacing the switch itself. Unfortunately, your switch is located in the latching mechanism, the whole thing must be replaced. This is done by first determining which door is causing the problem, then removing the door panel for latch access. If you need more detail just ask, your dealer will be happy to help, this repair should cost about an hours labour plus the part.
Hope this was some help.

Rear view mirror for 98 chrysler sebring


Hello Glitterqueen,

I have had the honor of perusing some of the finest
AUTOMOTIVE SWAP MEETS in the nation...
Northern California, Carlisle & several years of Hershey
being the best memories...!!

Before that we amateurs had the option of NEW
DEALER parts... usually abusively expensive
or "junking" (looking through SALVAGE YARDS)...

THE INTERNET... specifically eBay has brought
a whole new world to my finger-tips...
Have a look at the pages below...

Surprising prices on ROCKAUTO ... (in my opinion)
but do know your prices before trying AMAZON,
especially watchful of your shipping methods & COSTS.
