Question about Chrysler Sebring
Wrong...not dimmer control. It's an inverter inside the instrument cluster. This is the whole story:
After much research I found and ordered what appears to the correct EL inverter which powers the back lighting for 1997-2004 Chrysler Sebring and C 300 white instrument cluster's back lighting. If it doesn't work I will repost a correction if no correction..... it worked! I found it at www.glowhut.com for $9.00 plus $5.00 shipping. It is listed as a 12 volt electroluminescent inverter for A6 EL panel
It worked great ! (The 12 volt electroluminescent inverter for A6 EL panel), I listed above and bought from www.glowhut.com for $9.00 plus $5.00 shipping), was a perfect replacement for the original instrument cluster's inverter ( original is marked 04813406AA REV. AA EMD MEX 004403) used inside the 2001 Chrysler Sebring convertable'S instrument cluster. NOTE: the new inverter comes with a connecter that looks similar to the original inverters connector, but it is on the wrong pair of wires. It's a black connector and is on the new inverter's 160VAC black output wires; so cut it off and scrap it. Then cut the original inverter's tan 12VCD input connector with the black and orage wires off of the old inverter and solder them onto the new inverters red and black 12VDC input wires. Solder black to black and red to orange. The new inverters output wires are black and output approx 160 VAC. So solder them to the yellow wires cut off the original inverters output and go into the instrument cluster's electroluminescent glow wires. Since the inverters output is A/C it doesn't matter which black wire goes to which yellow wire. You can test it in a dimly lit room with a 12V battery. My $860 Instrument cluster is fixed for $14. You will have to open the Instrument cluster using torqe bits to get at the inverter inside the cluster after removal from the car.

Does adjusting the dimmer control for the dash lights have any effect on getting them to come on, or at least flicker?
The most likely cause is a defective dimmer control on the headlight switch. I've seen this on a few Chrysler models. The headlight switch and dash light dimmer is generally part of a single assembly, and is replaced as a complete module.
