Dashboard was dim with airbag indicator light always on when purchased. The problems started with dashboard lights going in and out and the wipers not working properly around November of last year. Was told fuses needed to be changed, so they were. Same issue. Then 3 months ago taillight bulb went out, changed it and the taillights have not worked since. Was told it has to be taken to dealer authorized shop for electrical box repair after taking car to three different shops who all said they could not find the issue. Today battery looking light came on and before I could turn around to go back home the car immediately shut off and would not start without a jump. The lightning bolt in parentheses came up and car accelerated without my foot being on gas but would not go above 30 mph once I made it home it turned off and refuses to start 6 hrs later. The battery light, lightning bolt symbol and airbag lights all show on dash and will not go off.

I bought this vehicle as is in February of this year. The convertible top gets stuck in the up position and doesn't go back down. I cannot see otu of the rear view and obviously cannot operate the vehicle safely. I contacted a dealership and Chrysler and both told me the recall had been addressed in 2008 (they llooked it up by VIN). However, it obviously wasn't since the top is still sticking. They basically told me too bad. However, they were unable to tell me which dealership had marked it as a completed and repaired recall which is strange. I would like it fixed ASAP since I cannot operate the vehicle without being able to see out the rear windshield! it was in a parking lot when this happened.

I am very concerned about my airbag light coming on 1-2 times a month. Does that mean the air bags may suddenly deploy while I am sitting at a light, or not deploy when involved in a crash? my second concern is that my dashboard lights started dimming and eventually went out on their own. I cannot drive at night any more. I took it to a mechanic and thinking it was a simple fuse problem. No, it has to do with the mechanic removing the dashboard and going into the instrument cluster box and replacing simething in there. I have been quoted $350. 00-to 375. 00 dollars. Cannot afford that. My new problem: driving home, getting ready to back up my drive way, the car is running hot, when I went to shift from drive to reverse,the car cut off. Had a hard time taking the carout of reverse to park. Like it was stuck or jammed. My neighbors came out to help push it out of the middle of the street and the front wheels were locked. The men eventually got it pushed to the side of the street. The car starts an run s with no problem my mechanis tells me it is the gear shifter cable us broken. I thought tose were made to last in a car. My car is now locked in park until I canget that fixed. As a senior on a fixed income I cannot afford to drive this old car I have sadly paid for.
Backing out of my driveway the engines suddenly shut down but restarted without an issue. Later that day the red warning light came on and the engine started to have no power and then staled I was able to move to the side of the road and saw the throttle position sensor light was on (witch I looked up in owner manual. Was able to get it started again and drove it to my mechanic who tested it and said I needed a throttle body. T hat was replaced now 4 days later I was on a hov lane doing 65 light came on engine sputtered but didn't stall arrived at destination when I got back in car light was out and car started. Driving home I had to pull over several times when light was illuminated . My concern is driving at highway speeds especially where I live there are long tunnels I travel through hopefully it doesn't do this to anyone driving through them and anywhere that would definitely cause a serious accident , the initial repair to replace throttle body was $271 and an additional $88 for same issue now throttle pedal needs replaced cost at this time unknown.
Bought battery and somethg is still draining and it keeps hsppening.
Key switch sticks on start , moves to acc ,on ,freely. Cannot believe Chrysler isn't replacing the switch as it is doing the same thing that I read the 700,000 they recalled.

The car will stop suddenly while driving I've been told its an electrical issue in the transmission, but I see from the recalls that Chrysler knows about these issues yet these cars are still been sold and driven even though they can have very dangerous consequences. The doors locks and unlocks on their own, the lights flicker. The car will also while in park jerk and rev as if someone is hitting the gas even though they are not, this also happens when in drive and my foot is on the break.
I was driving when my hood pope right up and it has been the second time. Also my cruse control doesn't work and some light inside don't turn on or my mirrors.
I was driving and my vehicle started over heating and then wouldn't run. I have put w gone coolant in it several time. The radiator hose top part is completely busted. Needing a new head gasket, and whole top radiator hose now. On top of that the power steering hose is messed up also. My car window also doesn't work. It's stuck rolled down because of an electrical problem. I want it all fixed ASAP. I can't afford the fix. I am a single pregnant mother who has several appointments to get to and from between my daughter and I. Just going to the store for food has almost been impossible. We have to rely on others to help us. I need my car out the shop. Please help.

Car has stalled while driving 4 times in the last week that we have owned it. Took it to dealer to get looked at and it is the tipm that costs $1000 to fix.
The check engine light came on Aug 2016. Garage says it needs a new integrated control module, told them to order one, they said it will take several months because 100's are on back order, they said to go ahead and drive the car. The windshield wipers are not working now (June 2017) and the garage says it is because of the integrated control module. The module is still on back order and we are number 450 or such. This seems to be a common problem the the Sebring (now Chrysler 200). We wonder what will go wrong next, will the engine die or worse maybe it will speed out of control.

Passenger window exploded in the door while touching control button for window to open to ask directions. Had to travel by myself to mexico 300 miles away and had to drive all the way back to las vegas with no window. The driver's side window did the same exact thing last summer in 2015. Called fca customer assistance center everyday for a week now and they told me my case was being escalated to a case manager. They would not help me. All I want is for Chrysler to pay for the repair of my defective window. I called 1-800-992-1997. They call themselves fca customer assistance center. They were a waste of my time and effort. Last window on driver's side did the very same thing. I want satisfaction!!! I want the window repaired by chyrsler on them as I repaired my last window blowout. Can any one suggest some help as I really need it today and even last week? I'm afraid of driving my own car. Chyrslers should either bring their windows up to new standards (electrically) or not sell any to people who live in the desert. They are not safe!!! this car is always garaged and has low mileage as I worked close to home. What's this world coming to? who's out there to help me? chyrsler sure is not!!! only god!!!!!!!!! I stopped for directions on this last window explosion, but the other window I was driving to the hospital without stopping.
The contact owns a 2008 Chrysler Sebring convertible. When the seat belt was buckled, the warning light remained illuminated and the engine failed while driving 10 mph. The vehicle was taken in for diagnostic testing. The mechanic stated that the vehicle could not be diagnosed because the battery continued to drain. The manufacturer was notified. The approximate failure mileage was 97,000.
Car went dead on road due to a bad total intergrated power module.
The dash lights go on and off randomly. An easy search on google shows this to be a design flaw with thousands of consumers affected. This should be an immediate recall to replace the 12 volt inverter which is flawed.
For the past several months my dash lights have been flashing, sometimes going off and staying off, and my remote start will start the car but then it immediately shuts off. I did some research on what could be causing this and discovered NHTSA reference # 08v-152, which describes exactly what I've been experiencing, and my car does have the tire pressure monitoring system. When I contacted Chrysler they told me that there have never been any recalls on my particular vehicle. I know this to be untrue because shortly after I purchased the car I received a recall notice for a spring in the gear shift. Chrysler informed me that if I want this corrected it would at my own expense. The problem that initiated the recall can result in the car stalling without warning and causing an accident. My car's VIN does not come up as a vehicle included in this recall, but if the problem is occurring, then why wouldn't Chrysler want to take care of it for safety's sake and their reputation? believe me, I plan on telling anyone I can about this and I will never consider another Chrysler product.
Had my car going on a year and I have made my trips to NY in August of 2014 a week after I purchased the car and going to mi may of this year and once I turn my headlights off I lose all dash lights when I turn them back on. Had to use my phone for light just to see my speed. Doesn't happen all the time just the 2 times so far when I took my trips from nc n back.
In the past 3 years that I have owned this vehicle each time is rains and/or humid my car would stall. I took it to 2 different mechanic shops (this was done in the span of three years). Unfortunately no one was able to find or to fix the problem. It seems quite dangerous as my car would stall as it is running, while I am driving (talk about unsafe). I noticed that the issue would surface when it is raining and/or very humid outside. My car would start to loose power, a bit of a engine hiccup, and then as I approach a stop or red light, the car would stall completely. Which means I need to put it in park, and restart the engine. Mechanic checked it and said there is "no issues" but any time it rains I have this problem. Also they checked the computer and replaced some other recalled item, and computer does not show any errors. How can one drive a car that unpredictably stalls and no one, even the dealer, is able to locate and fix the problem?.
Passenger airbag light stays on and dashboard cluster does not light up, both are dangerous and should not be ignored.

The contact owns a 2008 Chrysler Sebring. While driving 80 mph, another vehicle driving at a high rate of speed sideswiped the contact's vehicle. The impact caused the contact's vehicle to spin around in the opposite direction, facing two semi-trucks. The contact's vehicle stalled without warning.

The vehicle was towed to a repair shop and was inspected by the insurance company. A police report was filed. The contact sustained head, neck, back, and knee injuries that required medical treatment. The vehicle was taken to the dealer more than three times, but they could not repair the failure.
