Question about 1998 Chrysler Sebring

2 Answers

HELP please!! My daughter has a 96 sebring convertible and today she put her key in the door to unlock it and the alarm started going off. It wont stop, have disconnected the positive and negative battery cables, but when re attached, alarm is still going and car wont start because of it. We dont have a remote for this car, what can we do? Its most frustrating to have a good car just sitting and nothing to drive now.

I have a 1998 Chrysler Sebring Coupe and the alarm kept going off whenever I got in the car. Turns out the trunk wasn't closed properly. I opened the trunk and the alarm went off. I closed it solidly and it hasn't happened since. HOWEVER, the passenger door won't lock or unlock from the outside with the key. The key turns left and right but doesn't catch on anything. Any suggestions?

Just a quick note once you hook the battery back up try locking it and unlocking it from the drivers door, if that fails you might try the passenger door. I know on some chrysler products you have to lock and lock again to arm and unlock to disarm. I hope this helps.
Thanks,
Joey

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.

My 98 kia sportage wont start


It sounds like the key sensor in the drivers door is malfunctioning, the drivers door is the only door that can enable/disable the alarm, if you try to unlock any of the others it will trigger the alarm.

Sometimes with my Kia I have to (without opening the door), cycle lock and unlock several times before the alarm is disarmed.

Have you tried this is succession, with all the doors locked:-

put the key in the drivers door, turn to lock and then to unlock, the alarm should disarm.

Also, if any of the door locks are jammed, the alarm will still activate when you try to unlock the drivers door.

If that fails and the alarm still activates, then it's a problem with the key sensor in the door.

You can try putting everything back as it was, then lock and unlock the driver's door with the key.
Otherwise you may have to visit the dealer.

My 2001 sebring wont start. I turn the key and it


you could very have a transponder key that has failed to let the circuit complete to start the car. check that with your local locksmith. also try to unlock your doors manually with key , on the driver side and turn to unlock at least three times, i know it sounds stupid but your car has a passive alarm built in that will prohibit it from starting sometimes because it was designed so well.:) good luck.
