20 Most Recent 1997 Chrysler Sebring Questions & Answers

The 1997 Sebring convertible has rocker panels (the metal that goes from front to back wheel well and directly under the doors) that have five drain channels each.  The sloshing noise occurs when the drain holes plug up and a rocker panel fills up with water.  Often, the water will then leak into the right rear footwell, soaking the carpet.  A quick fix is to locate the drain holes and run a flat (unused) twistem-tie (they come with your trash bags) through each hole several times.  Commonly, doing so will result in a deluge of water, along with spider web parts, leaf parts, and whatever else washed into the rocker panel fromo the rear window.

To find the drain holes, just 1) lie under the car with a flashlight, or 2) sit alongside the car with one of those mirrors that come on a telescoping stick.  Since I don't like to lie in dirty water, I use the mirror to guide my twistem-tie (or ice pick or spring wire or whatever) into each hole.  NOTE:  the drain holes are flat and run at a 30 degree angle from back to front on the right side and from front to back on the left side.

Could be a few different thing's . The motor , relay , BCM - body control module , the switch etc.... Looking at a wiring diagram (do you know what a wiring diagram is ? ) I see fuse #15 10amp powers the wiper switch , the switch is an input to the BCM , The same fuse supply's B+ voltage to the control side of wiper hi/lo relay & the intermittent wiper relay . The BCM will energize these relay's after it receives a input from the wiper switch . Do you know how to test automotive electrical circuits using a wiring diagram an a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter ? Free wiring diagrams here http://www.bbbind.com/free-tsb Enter vehicle info. year , make , model an engine . Under system click on body & accessories ,then under subsystem click on wiper/washer . Click the search button ,then the blue link . Having the BCM check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes would be a good first step , could point to the problem .

So ,when you turn the key to start does the starter spin the engine ? a crank no start or nothing happens when you turn the key , no crank no start . 5 or 6 battery's in ten months ????? Sound's like you need to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop.

Start testing the lighting circuits with a ohm meter for shorts. Sometimes it's impossible to get to the wires without taking the entire car apart. Never do this, instead find a good part of the circuit with your ohm meter
and make a connection there with a new wire.
More common is switch issues or loose connectors.
Obtain a shop manual for your model and refer to the electrical parts section.
Don't worry about the cost of the shop manual, it will pay for itself.

Hi Deneice, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair!

Deneice, there are many things that can cause an engine to die while driving. (1) If you have the 2.5 liter engine they have a problem with the distributor itself going bad, I'm not sure what engine you have. (2) Fuel pump low pressure can cause dyeing while driving, you'll need to have the fuel pressure checked. Bad connection and wiring issues can cause the same thing, performing a wiggle test of all the wiring while the engine is running, CAUTION: While performing this test keep your hands away from the moving belts and parts. If you wiggle all the wiring and the engine dies while wiggling in a certain area, then you may have found a frayed wire touching metal or a bad connector. Hope this helps and if you should find the time please visit my auto repair website Here: http://www.bigasautorepair.com/

Did you check the timing belt to see if it broke? It ha a 2.5 and it has belt. Remove timing cover at the front of the engine and have someone crank it while you watch the cam to see if it turns. If it doesn't turn, replace the belt.
