Question about 1999 Chrysler Sebring

1 Answer

My 1999 Sebring Covertible steering wheel keeps locking and I can't turn the car completely off. I can turn the engine off but the speedometer doesn't completely turn off nor the cargo lights. So it drains the battery is there something I can do about this? I don't have the master key anymore. Chrysler sent us a copy.

Might have to replace the ignition assembly. The bolts on the steering column must be drilled out. There is a pin the retracts into a hole that locks the steering wheel, and it is part of the ignition Assembly. The two new bolt tighten down untill the heads break off so know one can remove the ignition to steel the car.

Key will not turn over the car everything including the steering wheel is locked up


Try wiggling the steering wheel when you turn the key. Sometimes there's a steering lock. Also, make sure the car is in Park. Could be the lock cylinder, or the wheel lock jamming.

I have a 1999 Chrysler Sebring. Power steering skips/ twitches while turning wheels only when stopped. Floyd level is good and belt is ok. Any ideas?


Either air is in system or belt is slipping. Belt may LQQK good, but check to see if it's glazed or contaminated with oil/fluids.

How to bleed power steering system to a 1997 chrysler sebring


Very simple!!! I posted this under how to bleed the steering system in the "Tips" section....you can do this yourself and is very easy.

Sebring Coupe And Avenger
  1. Check the power steering fluid level, and add if necessary.

Use only MOPAR ATF PLUS automatic transmission fluid type 7176, DEXRON II automatic transmission fluid, or equivalent, in the power steering system.

  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle to lift the front wheels off the ground.
  2. Manually turn the pump pulley a few times.
  3. Turn the steering wheel all the way to the left and to the right 5 or 6 times.

If bleeding is attempted with the engine running, air will be absorbed in the fluid. Bleed only while cranking the engine.

  1. Disconnect the ignition high tension cable and, while operating the starter motor intermittently, turn the steering wheel all the way to the left and right 5-6 times for 15-20 seconds. During the bleeding procedure, make sure the fluid in the reservoir never falls below the lower position of the filter.
  2. Connect the ignition high tension cable, then start the engine and allow it to idle.
  3. Turn the steering wheel left and right until there are no air bubbles in the reservoir. Confirm that the fluid is not milky and that the level is up to the specified position on the dipstick. Also confirm that there is very little change in the fluid level when the steering wheel is turned. If the fluid level changes more than 0.2 inches (about a 1/4 inch), the air has not been completely bled. Repeat the process.

    // // 0) preLoad.src = ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_ImageArray[i]; } ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data.lastIndex = 26; ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data.populateLog = theForm.elements['ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_PopulateLog']; ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data.treeViewID = 'ctl00$cphLeft$chRepairTreeNav$tvTOC'; ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data.name = 'ctl00_cphLeft_chRepairTreeNav_tvTOC_Data'; //]]> var _strTreeScrollHidName = 'ctl00_hidTreeScrollPos'; c17hydro_19.gif

      Check whether or not the fluid level changes between when the engine is running and when it is stopped

    My key will not turn


    Hum...Try this.

    With you left hand on the steering wheel and your right hand on the key, turn the key slightly until you feel resistance. Keep the pressure used to turn the key and pull the steering wheel to the left like you are turning left. If this doesn't work then turn the steering wheel to the right while trying to turn the key. If the problem is caused by the steering wheel lock this should allow you to turn the key and starrt your car. It is a very common issue and shows up alot when cars are parked with the wheels turned somewhat to one side or the other.

    My key wont turn. ignition is locked. brakes and wheel are all locked. had it happen before fixed it but cant remember what i did.


    If the steering wheel lock is engaged with the wheel turned sharply in either direction - weight of the vehicle at rest on the wheels can cause the steering column and ignition key lock to bind. To get the ignition to turn and unlock, you may have to grasp and turn the wheel or wiggle it a little back and forth to get it to come off the steering lock. This will relieve the pressure and allow you to turn the ignition lock if done right.
