    1997 Sebring horn is honking, starts but shuts off after 5 seconds, pulled horn relay but still won't stay running. Is it the alarm system or something else? If alarm where is fuse or reset buttom, key fob does not work.

Most probably its fuel assembly problem. Get the fuel pressure checked. If its less then its quite possible that fuel pump needs to be replaced and fuel filter is got clogged.There are some possibilities which you will have to check in this case:--
1) First of all check the power and voltage to the battery. With meter it will show exact 12 volt if the battery is charged. If the voltage is less get the battery charged at local auto repair shop. If the battery is internally drained and not getting charged then its time to replace the battery.
2) When you crank the car do you see spark coming at the spark plug? If no then its time to check the spark plugs and coil pack. If the spark plugs are not worn out and looks new then its time to check coil pack. The spark plug gets power to spark from coil pack.
3) The other thing to check in this case is the starter solenoid of the car. If the battery is charged and you start the car then it gives power to the starter to start the car. But if starter is faulty or not connected properly then car will not start.
4) The other thing to check in this case is fuel in the car. If there is fuel in the car then check the blockages in the fuel pump if the fuel pump looks proper then check the fuel filter above the fuel pump.
5) If all the above possibilities mentioned above checked out OK/perfect then it’s a electrical issue and the wiring's in the car needs to be checked. The car gets power from the battery to get started. so the wires from battery needs to be checked one by one.
Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

07 Chrysler Sebring still not running right after replacing catalytic converter... please help a gal out!


Stop using it,the flashing light is a Class A converter ruining
misifire,so nothing was fixed so far

Sounds like you have cylinder misfires that ruined the
converter & only the converter was replaced.

The last thing you do, is the converter, AFTER you diagnose the systems to find out why it failed

2001 sebring convertible won't start or crank has lights and power but no radio tried #8 fuse but doesn't work


i have the 2.7 as well. mine is in an intrepid. Car was running perfectly fine when i went into bestbuy and when i came out 5 min later i tried to start the car and it would just crank n crank. no start though. eventually it started after lots of cranking. after a couple of times of doing this in order to start the car i would get nothing from the startrer. everything had power and everything electrical worked. found out that if i went under the car and hit the starter with a hammer a couple of times it would finally crank again. but i had to do this every time i shut the car off and wanted to start it again. i loive in WI and its wintyer right now so it really sucked to do this. took it to my buds shop and pulled the starter out and dissected it and found that the (i believe they are "brushes") were ground down to next to nothing, the positive ones, do to constant cranking. was going to get a starter from junk yard for 20 befor i knew what the problem was. did some calling around and found brand new brushes for $20.00. i just got those and installed them and had a good as new starter again. lots of dust to clean out of the housing though. brake fluid and air hose works wonders for that problem. but from best buy on the car would not start without starting fluid if it was at running temp. still yet to solve that one. replaced the cam sensor, crank sensor, plugs, COP's and checked the rest of the sensors. still cant figure this out. anyone have advice let me know what i can check. fuel pump kicks in wen the key turns as well...

1997 Chrysler Sebring cut out while running, replaced fuel pumd, cranksensor, got used distributer from running car, then replaced the computer and it started!! but cuts out right away!at first would


See if resetting your ECC (ECM) called the computer will get rid of these problems. You do it by unhooking both battery cables, waiting at least 15 minutes and rehooking the battery. No security thing, only the fact the computer needs new settings for the parts you installed.

My 1997 chrysler sebring convertible turns over but will not start. The check engine light has been on since we bought it a month ago. we were told it was because of the o2 sensor.


you'll need a code reader to see the code no start issues can be many things check all your fuses does the engine crank is fuel flowing is do you have spark start by trying to get the codes

1997 Chrysler Sebring convertable engines turns over doesn't start. Was running fine then stopped.


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.

1997 Sebring starts, then stalls


You need to disarm the alarm, the 2 problems are related, the start and stall is caused by the fuel pump interupt function of the factory alarm, you triggered it when you replaced the battery, The reset procedure is in the owners manual.
