Typically, when when this happens, the system is low on fluid and/or must be bled. Here are the procedures:
Lower the top to the full down position.

  1. Remove the rear seat cushion, seat back and inner quarter trim panels. Pull up sharply on the seat cushion at the front about midway between the middle of the seat and the outside edges. The seat back is held in by nuts. The quarter trim panels are held in by screws I think.
  2. Remove the cylinder mounting brackets and remove the cylinders from the trunnion pivot mounts.
  3. Rotate the cylinders 180 degrees (the hose fittings will now face to front of the vehicle.
  4. Disconnect the motor/pump retaining clips from the body.
  5. Rotate and raise the motor/pump assembly so the reservoir is in the up position. The rubber filler plug will be at the top.
  6. Raise motor/pump fitting to at least 2 inches above the horizontal rear seat back reinforcement.
  7. Tilt the motor/pump assembly to approximately the 10 o'clock position, with the rubber filler plug still at the top CAUTION: THE MOTOR/PUMP ASSEMBLY MUST REMAIN IN THE CURRENT POSITION UNTIL THE RUBBER FILLER PLUG IS REINSTALLED IN THE Step 12.
  8. Remove the rubber fill plug from reservoir.
  9. Fill the hydraulic system by adding Dexron 2 Automatic Transmission Fluid to the bottom of the fill hole CAUTION: DO NOT OPERATE THE TOP SWITCH IN THE UP (CLOSING THE TOP) DIRECTION.
  10. With two people, activate the top switch in the down (opening the top) position to fully retract the cylinder rods and hold for approximately 5 seconds, until the motor/pump stalls. A percolating or gurgle sound/feeling is an indication that the procedure is working.
  11. Top off the motor/pump with Dexron 2 and insert the filler plug.
  12. Install the motor/pump assembly into the vehicle mounting bracket.
  13. Rotate the cylinders back to the original position (hose fitting rearward)
  14. Install the motor/pump lead and hydraulic line clips (the hydraulic line clips are to assist in the production process) to ensure that the seat back/seat cushion do not pinch the lines. If the sticky side is no longer holding to the floor pan, the clips can be left off.
  15. Ensure that the bushing is still on the trunnion pivot mount and bracket. Tap the top switch in (raising the top) to get the cylinder trunnion onto the trunnion pivot mounts, if needed.
  16. Install cylinder mounting brackets.
  17. Raise and lower the top to ensure proper operation.
  18. Install the inner quarter panels, and the rear seat back and cushion.
  19. And Just a fair warning here - you WILL spill fluid inside your car. If you manage not to, I want to know how. I cover everything with garbage bags because there have been a few instances where I accidentally hit the button the wrong way and that stuff went EVERYWHERE. Be careful and good luck.

First you want to make sure that there are no obstuctions under the compartment area that may be keeping the top from resting in its bay.If that is clear, put the top halfway up and look for any leakage around the lift and collapse pistons. If you see any at all the pistons have to be resealed or replaced. If you do not see any leakage, look for a sheared pin in the pivot areas of the mainframe in the rear.

SOURCE: 1997 Chrysler Sebring convertable engines turns

Two things to check for. Spark and fuel spay some fuel injector cleaner directly into the intake and if it want to start and shuts off you have a fuel delivery problem, probably a fuel pump or relay. If nothing happens check the spark . If you have no tools the old fashioned way of using a philips screw driver and attaching it to a plug wire and then putting it close to the block while it is turning over. Insulate yourself first. If you have no spark the usual reason on a Chrysler is the crank sensor, but it should be diagnosed before throwing parts at it.

Hope it gives you somewhere to go.

SOURCE: keys locked in trunk 2004

any mobile locksmith can get you into the trunk. or at least cut a key for the door and ignition and then use the inside trunk release. They will tell you the cost up front.

Your local dealer may be able to cut a key using the vin number.

SOURCE: 2010 Town & Country trunk won't shut

When you pull the trunk handle back towards yourself to open the trunk, it may be sticking in that position, so give the handle a tap to pop it back into its original position. Then shut the trunk and see if it has latched.

Chrysler sebring trunk lock wont latch and stay shut and locked


On the Sebring, there is a small switch on the trunk where it latches. Right in the middle, there is a small button you can push, which will allow the trunk door to shut. It just needs reset. Right where it goes down to lock at.

I rented a 2009 sebring convertible but it has no owners amnual. How do I put the soft top down?


There should be a button on both the dash and your key fob that you can push to automatically put the top down. Make sure the 'top holder' is open and ready in the trunk before you push the button.
