Question about 1998 Chrysler Sebring

Open Question

I'm working on a 1998 Sebring JXI convertable that won't start. The crankshaft sensor has been replaceed twice by someone else. I get a digital square wave pattern from both the crank and cam sensor but there is no spark. The fuel pump cycles at KO. Cranking speed is good.ASD relay seems to be ok. The story I was given is that the car ran and just died going down the road.Do you have any advice?

piece of cake....
take off the two "star" bolts, one toward the center of the engine above the light assembly and the other toward the fender (it is very long). when you remove them both the entier assembly falls off into your hands and makes changing the bulbs much easier.

Most Chrysler cars do have an anti-theft system that can cut out the engine.

I would call the service department, with your VIN handy, and see if yours was equipped with one, and what you need to reset it.

If that isn't the problem, your EGR valve might be bad, or the sensor for it. I've seen a lot of cars where if either the valve itself, or the sensor are malfunctioning, the car won't run properly.

I would also check your MAF and IAC, as those can cause the car to not run.

If you can, get an OBDII code scanner, and pull the codes from your car, they might give you a more specific place to look. (Most parts stores will let you take one home, you put a deposit down, and get it back when you bringthe scanner back to them)

SOURCE: 97 sebring lxi, 2.5L -

first thing you got to do is determen weather its electrical or fuel problem, you can take a test light and hook to a ground and the light end to a spark plug and see if it lights while someone turns over engine, if it lights you got spark. if its got spark, on to fuel, take fuel pressure test, don't think because you can hear pump working does not mean it is, it can sound like it is but its not, at least putting out enought pressure, not the correct amount it will not run. pumps will go out just that way with no warning at all.

These engines are known for the water pumps and/or the timing chains hydraulic tensioner failing and causing the timing to jump time. And checking the timing on these engine is not easy unless you can get a scan tool that can tell you if the cam and crank are in sync. If it says out of sync it has most likely jump time.

Verify you have spark, those are known to have issues with the camshaft sensor in the distributor. I have put 2 distributors in my daughter's 97 sebring jxi, did the same thing.

the timing is off you need to readjust it. most likely the motor is running rough because of inaccurate combustion.

Where is the battery located in the 1998 Chrysler Sebring Convert. JXI


Turn the front wheels to the left and you should see an access panel leading to the battery. You may have to remove the left front wheel to gain more room.

98 sebring jxi convertible. water pools in my back floor board


Sebring Convertibles have weep holes under the body that get clogged with debris and cause the water to back up into the floor. Take a paper clip and straighten it to clean out the weep holes. The weep holes can be found just under the frame at the doors where there is a seam(about where the jack would go). Along this seam about ervery 12 or 16 inches there will be a small slot for the water to drain.

1998 Chrysler Sebring JXI Convertible Blower Motor Not Working


Sounds like it in the switch or the electrical plug at the switch.The electrical plug could be burnt and need repairing or replacing. Need to remove the dash fascia, Careful not to damage clips. If the cover has no visible screws or bolts, then it clips into place. Unbolt heater controls and pull contol forward. Not a fun job but with patience you should be ok.
