Question about 2005 Chrysler Sebring Conv
I have a 2005 Chrysler Sebring Sedan. For the past 2 months I have had a problem that nobody seems to be able to solve. When the engine is off, a fan-like sound comes from under the hood. I know that there is a fan that will cool the engine after the ignition is off. However, this is where my problem is. Some days it will run off and on, at different intervals until my battery dies. After jumping the car off, it will run fine. Some days it does it and some days it doesn't. It will do it for several days in a row, then it will go two weeks without doing it at all. I have tried checking the relays and they all seem to be good. When the "fan" is running, I have pulled all of the relays one at a time and the "fan" continues to run. I am not sure what is running exactly. The part that the sound comes from is on the underside of the engine in the very front of the car and is connected to one hose. My husband seems to think it may be a water pump or a vaccume pump, but is unsure as well. I have had a mechanic look at it, but he thought it was a relay problem and is stumped as well. I went to Auto Zone today to get some advice and they had no clue and suggested I take it to another mechanic 30 miles away that specializes in electrical problems. Oh, the check engine light came on about a month and a half ago, but turned back off just as quickly as it came on and hasn't been on since. Auto Zone said they could not connect it to the computer to see what might be wrong because it wouldn't give them a code if the light wasn't on. I am at my wits end. I have already replaced the battery once because the old one was fried after jumping the car off so many times. Please help me!!
I have the same problem which seems to be dealing with California models since they are the ones with secondary air injection. I retrieved code which lead to secondary air injection relay "A" but no one seems to know just where this relay is located. Of course all the parts houses around me have no idea what a secondary air injection relay is let alone where it is located. Of course Chrysler will not give any information but say that they will gladly diagnosis for $75.00 per hour, yeah right!!!!!! I know where the problem lies so I will order a Motors manual that is dealing with the component location diagram and touch bases with everyone that has a Sebring because this problems is perdominate with that model only!!!

REPLACE THE AIR INJECTION PUMP RELAY.

Make sure there is enough coolant & bleed any air at the bleed port on the T-stat housing. Make sure you check the connection at the sensor at the same place, if it is loose, or possibly even bad, it will turn on the fan. You cant just put coolant in with out bleeding the air out. This could be you problem to your check engine light as well. When it is fixed , the engine light may remain on for awhile. Also if your gas cap is bad or loose, it can turn on the engine light. It also takes awhile for the engine light to reset. I hope that helps... D
email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if that works. :-)

I'm having the same problem with my car, have changed the battery twice and the alternator and fuses nothing is working. We have also taken the car to the dealer twice and they said my car is working fine, no problems, then the next day the battery was drained again. I've thrown so much money into this car it's crazy, I'll try the air injection pump relay next.
