Question about 2007 Chrysler Sebring

1 Answer

I have a 2007 chrysler sebring that wont release they key from the ignition.

It will start fine I can drive, but it wont turn off completely and I have to unhook the battery to keep the car from draining. I have tried to hit the key with a mallet, turn the key while moving the wheel. I just want something that will work. I don't know if my car has a key release that I have seen on other cars. Please help.

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.

there are a few things that will cause this problem 1 is a stuck solenoid, 2 starter drive pinion stuck in the ring gear or flywheel. 3 ignition switch is shorted internally. I would try tapping the starter motor with a hammer or steel bar then turning the key to the on position... If the problem is gone replace the solenoid.

try to reach up under the front of the car with your arm and try to locate the latch with the hood release cable attached to it. Use your fingers or plyers to manipulate the latch to release-pull on the cable. You may have to remove the grill to access it.

I have a 04 chrysler sebring and the speedometer spiked all the way to the other side after the battery was changed. How do I get it back to normal?


try setting the odometer to read the trip miles. Then turn the ignition key to the off position. Now while holding the trip meter reset button in, turn the ignition key to the run position ( not cranking the engine just until the dash lights come on). The dash should go into a reset mode. You can release the trip reset button while the dash resets itself, should take less than a minute to complete.

Hi there,

You will need to extract the fault codes from your vehicle's computer, as follows:

1) Turn ignition key: ON, OFF, ON OFF, ON (leave in ON position)
2) The Check Engine light (CEL) should start flashing
3) Read codes as follows:

- First group of flashes indicate 1st digit of code (followed by short pause)
- Second group of flashes indicate the 2nd digit of code (followed by short pause)
Note: a long pause separates each fault code, then codes will repeat again

e.g. Flash, Flash (short pause), Flash (long pause)...... indicates Code: 21

4) Code 55 indicates end of CEL code output


Post your codes results here and I can assist you with the appropriate repair.

Cheers,

Shifter stuck in park ,wont move


Transmission is in a bind, are you parked on an incline or something? If so, try rocking the car with the ignition turned on to release the shifter if and when it comes loose, if not, repair shop sounds like.

My 2001 chrysler sebring has been fine, but tonight i put they key in and it wont turn, it feels like something mechanical not electrical...they key goes in and out, just wont turn....any thoughts?


When you put the key in the ignition, try giving it a few good taps right on top of they key. That usually does the trick for me. Also, always be sure the wheels are straight before turning off the ignition. For some reason, parking with the wheels turned often causes this lockup problem for me. It can be a pain, but just keep tapping and it should unlock.
