Interior dash lights flicker on and off at night, sometimes remaing off. As such, speedometer isn't illuminated, as well as other guages. I googled this condition and by the responses I saw, this is a widespread problem in the Chrysler Sebring and there should be an immediate recall before someone gets hurt from diverting attention from the road to the dash situation. This happens if the vehicle is stopped, moving, turning, on a city street and in highway conditions. It happens when traveling on smooth pavement or rougher conditions. The vehicle is in like new condition and has never been wrecked.

First I went to start the car, I noticed the battery wasn't starting. I open the hood and tried to move the battery post, they were tight, but the plastic cover on the post started sending sparks out when I touched it. After a while I tried to start it again and it started right up. Then I noticed the malfunction indicator light came on. I let it run for about a minute then I turned it off. I didn't drive it at all that day. Later I checked it again. It didn't start. So I did the same thing again it started right up but the electronic throttle control light was on as well. I was afraid to drive it I thought the sparks might make it catch on fire. I think there were a recall on this car a while back. I've never had a problem with this car. I know that many people have had this same problem on their Chrysler vehicles. I read about many other problems as well. What should I do next? I'm really not interested in paying any deductibles and car repairs at this time. Help!!! is this anything that I need to worry about?.

After a few days of the windows not operating properly and the car hesitating at times during acceleration, it would not start after being parked for an hour. The vehicle was towed and it was diagnosed as the tipm was not working and that it had been supplying continuous power to the fuel pump and the wires were burned! this certainly sounds like a fire hazard. This repair cost over $1000 with $677. 50 being for parts. I see that jeeps have been recalled and there are other similar complaints about the tipm for vehicles. Why is this not a recall item?.

Fuse 8 under hood, 20a fuse. Chrysler has a couple of branch circuits downstream of this and collectively an increased load condition causes an overload on startup only. Instant burn fuse cant cope. The problem is design, there are 4 circuits fed downstream on that fuse, if the collected load builds some resistance it will exceed the capacity of the fuse. I am currently changing the fuse daily just to start my car and go. And sometimes have to change it again before leaving my destination. I did some research online by resulting to google and there are countless other people with this same problem. I was told not to put a larger fuse in there for it may catch fire because of not allowing the fuse to blow when it needs to blow. It seems to be a problem with Chrysler set up and to be not actually anything broken with my car. What do I do?.

While driving on a highway at high-speed, all the electrical instruments began flashing on/off. The airbag light began flashing and a chime could be heard. This occurs intermittently (3-5 times per year) and Chrysler cannot properly diagnose the problem. With this latest incident, the dealership told me it would cost $800 for a new power control module. I researched online only to learn there are thousands of people with identical complaints about their Chrysler vehicles, while NHTSA refuses to order a recall. I refuse to allow Chrysler to perform work on this vehicle unless they can guarantee the repair and cap the cost. I purchased this vehicle new and Chrysler failed to disclose two auto body repairs performed prior to sale - I discovered this on the Chrysler website and since spent over $1,500 to repair it because Chrysler refused to accept any responsibility after the lemon laws expired.

Driving down a normal traffic filled street, car all of a sudden shakes and, wont go passed 20 mph and the electronic throttle control light comes on. Its happened before but if I turn off the car and restart, the car would return to normal. This particular day it didnt. Took it to tire plus, they said I need a fuel line cleaning or something like that. Fixed the problem for about a week and today as I was driving from work doing about 45 mph the electronic throttle control light comes on again, 3 times in under fice mins. Each time had to restart my car. Its dangerous when youre in traffic and late at night, having to pull over and restart.

Having continual issues with lights on dash flickering: 2 repairs completed in last 18 months and still broke. Cosmetically, the car is crappy since the day I bought it; paint flaking off, tire rims have pitted, inside door handles flaking off paint too, among a few others. However, my heated seats burning through is what has me very irate! I was driving and had two adult passengers with me. Both of us in the front had the heated seats turned on returning home from running errands in the city 45 miles away. My passenger is 8 months pregnant and I have low lumbar issues, so heated seats are always used. We had both complained that we found it weird that if we made quick stops during our running, when we got back into the car and turned the heated seats on, it felt warmer than usual. However, if we were somewhere for a longer period of time, the seats didn't get terribly hot right away. The car sat for 48 hours before it was time for me to pack up and head back to my own home, when I noticed what I thought to be a stain on my seat (from my daughters dog thinking he was going with me). After trying to clean it and nothing happening, I touched it with my finger tip, only to find that it was a burn spot. If that would have caught fire while driving, I could have crashed! I could have killed my pregnant passenger, her hubby and her unborn baby! since today is a holiday, you can bet that I will be calling the dealership first thing tomorrow. I am the first and only owner of this car.
