    Did you check the radiator or the coolant canister? Make sure engine is cold before removing radiator cap. You could suffer severe burns from hot coolant.

My 2002 sebring LXI is not throwing out cold air when heater is on


Could be low on coolant, or the thermostat may not be closing, or there may be a problem with the blend door under the dash.
The engine thermostat is closed until the engine warms up, so if it is stuck open the engine never warms up.
The blend doors under the dash direct air thru the heater and the vents.

I would expect this is more to do with a low coolant level than an electrical issue. If your coolant is low when you turn off the headlights your engine revs will increase slightly increasing the pressure in your coolant system and pushing fluid into your heater core.
Check your coolant reservior when your car is cold (first thing in the morning), it should be at max cold. If it is lower than this you may not have warm coolant in your heater core.
If this is the case...then where did your coolant go?
Most likely the thermostat/temp housing is leaking...replaced both on my two 2001 sebrings...common issue..~$150 for parts and a little awkward to install but fairly easy fix.

My 2004 Sebring heater only blows warm air when the car is moving. If I stop at a traffic light or put it in park it blows cold air. Any ideas?


1st check the coolant level. If it's low, what you describe will happen. If level is ok, let me know, and include info on engine temp gauge--how long to warm up, is gauge at warm up low temp range, normal, or hot?

1998 Sebring Convertible heater is blowing cold air even after replacing the thermostat. Any suggestions on fixing the heat?


after engine is warmed up , feel the hoses that go to and come from the heater. if they are not hot , this indicates that coolant is not flowing through the heater core. Could be that the core is all plugged up , ore some cars have a valve that opens or closes the flow. If the hoses are hot , that the problem is that the ducts in the dash that send air to and from the heater plenum are not opening up correctly. They usually work on a vacuum motor.
If you are not sure which are the heater hoses add that to your post , and I will track down the location for your vehicle. The heater hoses are usually about 1 inch in diameter.

Why does my heater only work when I step on the gas pedal?


To stop my heater from getting cold whenever I came to a stop, I fixed the problem by adding water to the coolant system with the car running. I added water and waited for about 30 seconds to watch the water go back down and I continue this process until the coolant reservoir was full and stop going back down. I now have no problems with my heater and it even gets hotter than before I did this process.
