Question about Chrysler Sebring

1 Answer

The lights in my car, (speedometer, tachometer and others) in the dome or dash area behind the steering wheel (2001 chrysler sebring convertiable limited, 78,000 miles)won't turn on until I drive for about 10 minutes or so. This is a problem because I can't see the speed I'm driving at night. I've taken the car to a chevy/chrysler dealer, and they can't find the problem at a 90.00 cost. They tell me to bring the car back so they can further trouble shoot the car.

Check under the dash for a loose connection. The connections you'll be after will be just above the driver side dash. We're owner/operators of an auto repair facility and we hear about the "people spending money but their car is still in the same condition as it was when you got there" syndrome. Every time I hear something like that it makes me sick. We don't charge "just to look at it".I think it's just a big rip off!. I'd feel guilty about charging someone and their car is still in the same condition it was when they brought it over. I guess this is why our shop is growing popularity and getting busier everyday and why I spend alot of time on this site answering posts when I can.

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...

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.

Instrument cluster bulb is out. how do i replace

It may not be a bulb, as the instrument cluster usually has a number of bulbs and they probably didn't all blow at once. Pulling instrument clusters can be touchy and may not be for the average "shadetree mechanic" however, typically there are a few screws above the cluster going into the dash pad and a few hidden behind the trim panels below the cluster.

Air bag light on

You have a sliding contact behind the steering wheel (called a clock spring). It is probably bad & needs replacing. Need to remove steering wheel for access. Usually there is a code set that says whether it's the driver side air badg or passenger side air bag that's the issue.
Somtimes, you can check it yourself by reading the number of flashes once you enter self test. Read owner manual or call dealer service dept and ask for self test procedure.
For a Ford, you turn key to "on" and then press the door dome lamp switch 7 times in 10 seconds and then read the codes. Not sure about Chrysler.
