Question about 2007 Chrysler Sebring Sedan

1 Answer

Does a 2007 chrysler sebring have a lock out mode that will cause the engine to not turn over or start

I was having my AC worked on and my husband would turn the key on and off several times without turning the engine over. When he needed to move the car it wouldn't turn over. He checked the battery and it was completely charged. He has checked everything he can think of. Somebody told him it might have a lock out mode and he needed to check the owners manual, however, the manual says nothing about a lock out mode. It was running fine and now nothing.

Just a guess, but it's worth a try. The computer may have gotten confused. To restart the computer disconnect the battery. Remove the RED wire off the battery then remove the BLACK wire. Let it sit disconnected for about 30 minutes (to discharge the capacitors). Reconnect the battery, and try it. Be aware that your will loose your radio presets.

SOURCE: 2002 Chrysler Sebring will not start

Mine did the click, click and the timing chain had snapped. If any of you have 2.7 litre engines plan on an engine rebuild or a replacement. Look up the 2.7 engine size along with oil sludge and timing chains. Grab yourself a towel to sop up the tears. This car is 100% garbage and I'm shopping for another non Chrysler product this week.

SOURCE: car alarm preventing car from starting

Try removing the alarm system relay, some car alarm has also a fuse on the alarm that you can remove.
Many car alarms unlock by inserting and turning car key while you connect the battery.

Is there a serpentine belt made for 2007 Chrysler Sebring 2.7 Engine without ac

The short answer is no. You may be able to measure the length of a belt that does not go around the ac compressor and buy that belt, but chances are you won't be able to route the belt to bypass the compressor and keep it tight.

Today i was drivng my 2007 sebring made two stops and on the second stop it wouldn't start. Everything else works like the lights, the radio, the ac everything it just won't say nothing.

You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem.
Is the check engine light on ? Have you checked for trouble codes ?
It could be a relay, the ignition module, coil, fuel pump, or a list of other things.

My 2007 chrysler Sebring has a whinning noise when starts. After it starts, it sounds like knocking on the left side which is the passenger side under the hood.

I have the same problem with mine. We just took it to the dealership this morning and they said it was the alternator. Said they have been seeing alot of these. My dealership wanted to charge $800 to fix it, so now my husband is trying to replace it himself.

1997 Chrysler Sebring starts everytime but shuts off after five seconds everytime. Getting fuel and spark. What could be causing the shutdown?

It sounds like you computer system has gone into "Theft Protect Mode". There is most likely a problem with your security system and the computer "thinks" that the vehicle is being stolen. This can be due to the wrong key being used, or it could be a bad ignition switch or theft module. I would recommend having it diagnosed professionally. It would be very difficult to diagnose the problem without the required computer diagnostic equipment. If any of the parts of the security system are defective, the computer will have to be reprogrammed when they are replaced.

I would, however try a different key in the ignition if you have more than one - before having it towed to a repair facility. If another key works, you will only need to get a replacement key and have it programmed for your car.

We have a chrysler sebring 2007-we can get it started but will not move from park- we have trouble shoot from the book

This may seem elementary, but... The shift lock is released when the service brakes are applied, check to see if the brake lights work. If they do not the brake light switch or wiring may be at fault. If the do work, the shifter interlock mechanism may be broken. Good luck.
