SOURCE: 2000 chrysler sebring convertable top will go down but will not

Typically, when when this happens, the system is low on fluid and/or must be bled. Here are the procedures:
Lower the top to the full down position.

  1. Remove the rear seat cushion, seat back and inner quarter trim panels. Pull up sharply on the seat cushion at the front about midway between the middle of the seat and the outside edges. The seat back is held in by nuts. The quarter trim panels are held in by screws I think.
  2. Remove the cylinder mounting brackets and remove the cylinders from the trunnion pivot mounts.
  3. Rotate the cylinders 180 degrees (the hose fittings will now face to front of the vehicle.
  4. Disconnect the motor/pump retaining clips from the body.
  5. Rotate and raise the motor/pump assembly so the reservoir is in the up position. The rubber filler plug will be at the top.
  6. Raise motor/pump fitting to at least 2 inches above the horizontal rear seat back reinforcement.
  7. Tilt the motor/pump assembly to approximately the 10 o'clock position, with the rubber filler plug still at the top CAUTION: THE MOTOR/PUMP ASSEMBLY MUST REMAIN IN THE CURRENT POSITION UNTIL THE RUBBER FILLER PLUG IS REINSTALLED IN THE Step 12.
  8. Remove the rubber fill plug from reservoir.
  9. Fill the hydraulic system by adding Dexron 2 Automatic Transmission Fluid to the bottom of the fill hole CAUTION: DO NOT OPERATE THE TOP SWITCH IN THE UP (CLOSING THE TOP) DIRECTION.
  10. With two people, activate the top switch in the down (opening the top) position to fully retract the cylinder rods and hold for approximately 5 seconds, until the motor/pump stalls. A percolating or gurgle sound/feeling is an indication that the procedure is working.
  11. Top off the motor/pump with Dexron 2 and insert the filler plug.
  12. Install the motor/pump assembly into the vehicle mounting bracket.
  13. Rotate the cylinders back to the original position (hose fitting rearward)
  14. Install the motor/pump lead and hydraulic line clips (the hydraulic line clips are to assist in the production process) to ensure that the seat back/seat cushion do not pinch the lines. If the sticky side is no longer holding to the floor pan, the clips can be left off.
  15. Ensure that the bushing is still on the trunnion pivot mount and bracket. Tap the top switch in (raising the top) to get the cylinder trunnion onto the trunnion pivot mounts, if needed.
  16. Install cylinder mounting brackets.
  17. Raise and lower the top to ensure proper operation.
  18. Install the inner quarter panels, and the rear seat back and cushion.
  19. And Just a fair warning here - you WILL spill fluid inside your car. If you manage not to, I want to know how. I cover everything with garbage bags because there have been a few instances where I accidentally hit the button the wrong way and that stuff went EVERYWHERE. Be careful and good luck.

You are probably low on fluid.
Behind the rear seat is your motor/pump/reservoir combination.
With the top down, fill the reservoir to overflowing with ATF.
Cycle the system a few times and repeat.
Do this till the reservoir will take no more fluid.
Check the lines and cylinders for leaks. If you replace any lines or cylinders, always do them in pairs.

2008 sebring convertable frt.driver seat does not back and forth


this seat likely has two different motors to operate these functions and the one that slides it back and forth could either have a bad fuse or could be bad. when hitting the button that should operate this function put your ear near the bottom of the seat and listen for any type of noise coming from the motor. if it sounds as if its trying to move your motor is likely seized. if you can spin the motor over manually it may free it up and you could never end up having to replace it.

I put a used sebring 1999 convertable top on my convertable everything is good with the exception that it wont go do i can hear that it wants to work but its not what could the problem be


Yes, without hydraulic fluid, it is not likely to work.

Firstly, a caveat, if you don't know what you are doing, it will be better to get an auto mechanic to do this.

I am also making an assumption, that you haven't a) messed up the electrical switch that operates it, and b) damaged the hydraulic pistons, or the hydraulic hoses in the process. If so, all bets are off, and back to get a mechanic to fix it.

IN that model, the Hydraulic pump, should be located behind the rear seat. The bottom cushion of the rear seat would pop out, there will be clamps at either side of the outer edge of the seat. The rear seat back, can be removed by removing the seat belt plate at the bottom of the seat back, and liftig the seat back straight upwards. There will be a sound barrier flap, and the pump will be behind that. ON the top of the pump, will be a rubber fill plug. remove it, and fill to the bottom of the fill hole.


  1. Rotate and raise the motor/pump assembly so the reservoir is in the up position. The rubber filler plug will be at the top.
  2. Raise the motor and pump fitting to at least 2" above the horizontal rear seat back reinforcement.
  3. Tilt the motor and pump assembly to approximately the 10 o'clock position, with the rubber filler plug still at the top.

CAUTION: The motor and pump assembly must remain in the current position until the rubber filler plug is reinstalled in step 7.

  1. Remove the rubber fill plug from the reservoir.
  2. Fill the hydraulic system by adding Dexron 2 Automatic Transmission Fluid to the bottom of the fill hole.

CAUTION: Do not operate the top switch in the "up", closing the top, direction.

  1. With two people, activate the top switch in the "down" (opening the top) position to fully retract the cylinder rods and hold for approximately 5 seconds, until the motor and pump stalls. A percolating or gurgle sound/feeling is an indication that the procedure is working.
  2. Top off the pump with Dexron III Automatic Transmission fluid and insert the filler plug.
You may need to "bleed" the hydraulics. As I said, this is probably better done as a mechanic job (it may also need two people).

Do I have to take the gas tank off a 1999 chyrsler sebring jxi to change fuel pump or can i remove the back seat


I would hope there is no hole under the back seat with access to the gas tank. I'm sure that would be a potential health hazard. Every electronic fuel pump I've seen you have to drain the fuel and remove the tank. It is not a fun job. I would take it to a mechanic. If you make a mistake with it you can very easily damage the fuel pump or a seal and cause a leak.

Where is the BCM on a 96 sebring convertible


Behind your back seat cushion. You have to remove the seat to get to the hydraulic pump. to remove the seat you use a large screwdriver between your floor and the seat bottom at the front about a foot from each end. you will be able to tell that you cant pull the seat up as easily in two spots and you have to situate the screwdriver in those locations. Be careful not to break the seat or the bars, but sometimes you have to apply a lot of upwards force to get these two hooks to release. also you cannot put the screwdriver directly on top of the latch hook, the metal retaining bar doesnt continue through this area... place something under the side you unhook first to keep it from relatching in its slot. then do the other side. you then pull out the bottom of the seat, remove the two nuts holding the seatbelt latch bar on, and the back seat slides upward and comes right out.
There is a piece of sound dampening material with a black material on it covering up the location of the motor. once you lift this up the motor is right ther in the middle of the framing underneat the drain pan assembly.
i reccomdend putting your top down if possible to remove the back seat. it makes it a lot more comfortable to perform this task.

You need to invest in a 12 volt test light. Inexpensive to buy. Then just clip the aligator clip to any good ground turn on the key set the parking brake and put the shift lever in reverse. Now go to the back and pierce each wire until the test light lights up. Thats the wire you need!!
