Question about 2001 Chrysler Sebring

1 Answer

I have a 2001 Chrysler Sebring 4dr sedan. When I turn my headlights on my heat turns to cold. If I turn the dial from heat to cool with my headlights on, I get heat. I'm not sure what's causing this and my mechanic is also scratching his head. I can hear the heat door close when I turn on the headlights and I can hear it open back up if my lights are on and I switch the settings from heat to cool. Any thoughts?

SOURCE: removing the 2.7 engine from 2001 sebring sedan?

ok heres the simple version its alot of work
remove hood put someplace safe
disconnect all wireing and mark off with masking tape and marker
****** you need car lift ******
remove all plastic part molding from engine
find the engine hoist holes for chain to hook to
this is a unibodi design so the whole front chassis drops down
unbolt the chassis make sure to have the chasis blocked and stable
lift car while chasis stays on floor engine tranny and every thing inside hood comes down on the unibody this is how you remove an engine from a sebring

or you take to the dealer spend the doe cause you got a nice car and have it done right

There's a fuse under the hood. It's the relay/ABS fuse (20 amps). You have to pull it out to see if it's blown out. If I remeber correctly, it,s the 3rd or 4th fuse down in the 2nd column of fuses. This supplies power to the relays that control the starter, fuel system, AC, and others.

When you put the key in the ignition, try giving it a few good taps right on top of they key. That usually does the trick for me. Also, always be sure the wheels are straight before turning off the ignition. For some reason, parking with the wheels turned often causes this lockup problem for me. It can be a pain, but just keep tapping and it should unlock.

Climate control only blows cool air on defrost setting. Speed works fine. When I pull 10A fuse it resets but only momentarily. 01 Chrysler Sebring Sedan.


Is yours a coupe, sedan or convertible? If it's a sedan or convertible, there's acalibration technique you can run. With the engine running, turn the temp all the way to the cold side. Turn the mode all the way to the defrost position. Put the fan switch to any position other than off. Then press the rear defroster button until you hear a chime. Let it go. The system will go thru some gyrations and give you a "report" in your odometer readout. A "0" is good.
You may have a bad control head. As you noted, the default mode is defrost, so if the body computer senses a loss of signal from the controls, it will put it into defrost.
Again assuming yours is a convertible or sedan, salvage control heads are fairly commonly available on ebay and in junkyards. The part is used in the sedan and convertible and in the Dodge Stratus from 2001 through 2006, so there are lots of them out there. It's an easy replacement which I would definitely try before tearing the dash apart.
The IOD fuse is the one in the middle of the fuse panel at the left end of the dashboard. Easily recognized by the "ears". You can pop it out with no tools.

I have a 2001 sebring convertable 2.7 V6, when I have the headlights on my heater is blowing cold air, turn them off and hot air blows, the dash lights at the temp knob and the fan speed knob are also...


I would expect this is more to do with a low coolant level than an electrical issue. If your coolant is low when you turn off the headlights your engine revs will increase slightly increasing the pressure in your coolant system and pushing fluid into your heater core.
Check your coolant reservior when your car is cold (first thing in the morning), it should be at max cold. If it is lower than this you may not have warm coolant in your heater core.
If this is the case...then where did your coolant go?
Most likely the thermostat/temp housing is leaking...replaced both on my two 2001 sebrings...common issue..~$150 for parts and a little awkward to install but fairly easy fix.

My 2004 Chrysler Sebring heater works about 30% of the time. The other 70% it blows cool/cold air. Also without my touching the dials will change from floor to defrost on its own quite often. This morning...


Ok Curtis... There may be a problem with the relay switch on this Sebring also check if the heater core is all the way open there should be a valve on the inline under the hood.

Cold Heat in a Sebring


I would have the heater core checked. It could be something as simple as a fuse but unlikely. not likely to be the thermostat as that would make the car overheat if it wasnt working.
