#1 - Electrical System problem of the 2010 Chrysler Sebring
The vehicle involved is a 2010 Chrysler Sebring. VIN of the vehicle was 1C3CC4FB2A_. Vehicle stall first time on August 20 2013. It would only get up to 10mph. Had to get it towed to shop. They cleaned the throttle work for about a month. On September 18 problem occured again the red light which looks like a lighting bolt cameon . Lost power pull over on interstate crank up again work fine until September 25 when it stall again had to get a tow truck again to take it to another shop. They told me that the first shop should not have replace throttle that only work temporarily. So they replace the whole throttle and reprogram this cost me a total of $733. This can be dangerous going down the interstate lucky didn't cost a accident. This should never happen especially 3 years old. This problem occurred on Aug. 20, 2013.

#2 - Electrical System problem of the 2008 Chrysler Sebring
The VIN of the car is 1C3LC55R58_. Bought certified used 2008 Chrysler Sebring convertible 7/11 with 18,000 miles. Fall, 2011 radio stuck on one am channel regardless of selecting am, fm, or sirius. Dealer offered to sell me new radio. After radio not used for a week, started to function okay again. July, 2012 headlight on message and alarm upon opening door, daytime, no key in ignition, no headlights on, interior dash display lights on but dim like for nighttime. 12/12 interior lights would not shutoff automatically when I exited car, switch not in on position. Ongoing: auto brightness display on radio does not work. Top down on key fob does not work. Winter, 2013 stalled twice at red lights, also had clunking noise when turning. Dealer said steering rack was worn and leaking and had to be replaced (35,000 miles) and was not under warranty. Dealer also cleaned throttle plate and fuel injectors for stalling problem. Even after this service car continued to stall, sometimes catching itself and speeding up which causes car to surge forward. As of today, 8/17/13 car has 40,050 miles on it and I wonder what's next. It was Oct. 3, 2011 when this electrical system issue happened.

#4 - Electrical System problem of the 2008 Chrysler Sebring
The vehicle involved is a 2008 Chrysler Sebring. The contact stated that the vehicle stalled. The vehicle also erroneously accelerated while the brake pedal was depressed. The vehicle was towed to the dealer for diagnosis however, the technician was unable to diagnose the failure but rebooted the electrical system as a precaution. The failure recurred intermittently. The contact referenced NHTSA campaign number: 08v152000 (electrical system) and was advised by the manufacturer was that the VIN was not included in the recall. The vehicle was not repaired.

#5 - Electrical System problem of the 2007 Chrysler Sebring
The car involved is a 2007 Chrysler Sebring. The vehicle identification number (VIN) of the car was 1C3LC46K27_. When my husband drives my car, he moves the seat back. When I drive my car, I move the seat forward. This action causes the airbag light on the dash to come on. When I move the electronically controlled seat forward/backward, the airbag light will "sometimes" go off. The NHTSA ref 07v240000 references a recall for the front seat track position sensor. I contacted Chrysler to see if my car is one that has been recalled. I'm told that it is not. I think it should be. This electrical system issue occurred Jun. 1, 2013.
#6 - Electrical System problem of the 2001 Chrysler Sebring
The vehicle was a 2001 Chrysler Sebring. The vehicle's vehicle identification number (VIN) is 1C3EL46U31_.

I jacked up the car on drivers side, just let down the jack; and it started both times. The locks don't work and the windows can only be controlled by the driver. Checked all fuses but the bottom line is this car has electrical problems. The failure date was Mon., Jul. 1, 2013.

#7 - Electrical System problem of the 2004 Chrysler Sebring
The vehicle having this issue was a 2004 Chrysler Sebring convertible. As I was driving on the highway I noticed a burning smell. I looked to my right and I saw smoke. I pulled over to the side of the road. I then turned off my vehicle. The smoke stopped. I had my dogs bed on the passenger seat. When I moved it, I saw the burn whole in the seat and the dog bed. It was 85 degrees. I did not have the heated seats on. If I did not have the top down the car would have filled with smoke causing major visibility problems. If it weren't for the dog bed that smothered the fire, there would have been flames. My dog and I might not be here to report this fire. After Chrysler inspected the vehicle they determined there was no defect. Chrysler will not tell me what caused it other than it was not a defect and therefore not their problem. The dealer I brought the vehicle to said there was a short in the relay. There is nothing I could have done to prevent this. This should not have happened. It is a very dangerous situation. It could happen to others. This issue happened on 06/21/13.

#9 - Electrical System problem of the 2008 Chrysler Sebring
The car is a 2008 Chrysler Sebring. So far my 2008 Sebring has turned off while driving twice. I was slowing down from 30mph for a stop light and it turned off and was luckily able to utilize the brakes if not I would have rear ended the vehicle in front of me, but as for the steering, it was unresponsive. However, I turned my car back on as if nothing happen until the second time it stalled while turning into my street. Same issue occurred (no steering, but brakes were ok. )car stalls once again good thing my car turns back on immediately. Its was dangerous only for the fact that oncoming traffic would be unable to see me stalled there because road forms a hill over the canal, since soon after I went passed over the canal my street entrance is more or less 20ft from the canal, it could be a blind spot. This problem occurred on 06/26/2013.
#10 - Electrical System problem of the 2008 Chrysler Sebring
The vehicle having this issue was a 2008 Chrysler Sebring. The electronic throttle light is continuously coming on even after repairs. The car will ride find and then all of a sudden cut off with no waring other than the light appearing. Also it stalls and you can be in the middle of traffic which is definitely safety hazardous. Ive notice that this problem has occurred to thousand and to my surprise no recall. This issue happened on May. 21, 2013.
#11 - Electrical System problem of the 2008 Chrysler Sebring
The vehicle was a 2008 Chrysler Sebring. I was driving in stop and go traffic and started speeding up due to less traffic. I was going 60 mph when my car stopped accelerating and started making this weird revving noise (the kind when you are parked or in neutral), my warning light came on for the electrical panel. I then pulled over because it was not going any faster than 35 mph. Just letting it sit it was making those same noises. I turned the car off and restarted it. The light when away and it was able to drive again. It had a little issue getting back up to speed but overall it went back to normal. This electrical system problem happened on Tue., Apr. 16, 2013.
#12 - Electrical System problem of the 2008 Chrysler Sebring
The vehicle having this issue was a 2008 Chrysler Sebring. On Monday 1/28/2013 after a heavy morning of snowing and raining, I began to run errands. All of sudden my car 2008 Chrysler Sebring stalled as I was driving. I started the car immediately back up with no problems however shortly afterwards pulling up to a traffic light the car stalled again. Everything in the car goes off as if someone has turned the ignition key to off position. This is very dangerous as there are no warning to the possibility the car is about to stall. Tuesday 1/29/13 I took my car to a local repair chain as it continued to stall and they reported not finding anything electrical wrong with the car nor mechanical. However, they suggested that when cars stall sometimes it may be the spark plugs may need to be replaced. So based on their suggestion I had the spark plugs replaced/tune up. Unfortunately, this did not solve the problem as I drove home car stalled. On Wednesday 1/20/13, I took the car to another trusted mechanic and they reported the problem being electrical and manufactured due to how the car totally shuts down and not registering with the dash board a problem. On 1/31/13 I had the car towed to the Chrysler dealership only for them to confirm, so far, what the other two mechanics already told me, its an electrical problem that is not showing up on dash. For three days the car stalled aprx. 11 times at traffic lights and/or in motion. I have read there was a recall on 2007-2008 Chrysler Sebring's however when I called Chrysler I was told that did not include my car due to it being manufactured a month later than the recall cars. However, the recall notice describes exactly what is happening to my car. I have also communicated with 2 other people to whom have complained about the same stalling issues with the same year and model car. I just hope it does not take someone losing their life before changes are made to solve this problem. It was Jan. 28, 2013 when this electrical system issue occurred.
#13 - Electrical System problem of the 2008 Chrysler Sebring
The car was a 2008 Chrysler Sebring conv. While idling at a stop light in ocean city, new jersey, engine surged then stalled. The car was then driven two blocks to a corner sunoco station and while idling at the gas station, the car again surged and died. Car was taken to atlantic Chrysler, but service could not duplicate the problem and the computer did not reflect it. Jan. 13, 2013, while driving in atlantic city, NJ, car engine revved and stalled while stopped at a stop light. The car surged forward slightly before breaks halted forward progress of car, nearly hitting the car in front of me. This happened twice before getting the car home. During the same trip the dash board light activated indicating the convertible top was in operation. The light did not deactivate until the convertible top had actually been activated, taken down and replaced. I have read a number of similar reports to this one. This is a dangerous situation and has to have a fix by now. It was Tue., Oct. 9, 2012 when this electrical system issue occurred.

Dash lights also flicker on and off. Chrysler dealership states they can't find anything wrong with my car since it's not giving them codes but recommend I replace the engine.

#20 - Electrical System problem of the 2007 Chrysler Sebring
I bought my 2007 Chrysler Sebring brand new April 2007. After about a year (or less) and well under 20,000 miles the gas cap light would not go off, windshield wipers went off sporadically even in the "off" position, got stuck in park, fuel tank had to be replaced (which went out while I was driving), air bag light won't go off, etc. Had all these problems fixed only to have many of them recur. They were all fixed under warranty. Now after 36,000 miles and no warranty, the problems I have now are the windshield wipers still won't go off, my electric windows sometimes won't work at all (driver's side specifically), air bag light won't go off but occasionally when driver's seat is moved backward and forward but always returns, car will stall at times when pressing the gas pedal while driving. After the windshield wipers began going off again, took it to Chrysler dealership in my town. . . They contacted Chrysler to see if they would replace it again and they refused. All the recalls I read about that appear to pertain to my vehicle, Chrysler says my VIN is not a part of the recall (even though it's happening to my car too)! I will never buy another Chrysler vehicle for myself, or anyone in my family again! problems with this car started early and never went away. This electrical system issue occurred Wed., Apr. 9, 2008.

#22 - Electrical System problem of the 2001 Chrysler Sebring
The vehicle is a 2001 Chrysler Sebring sedan. The dash, radio, & cd player lights flash off and on intermittently. This occurs on random occasions, but seems to happen more often in wet weather. It also happens when operating the turn signal. The lights will dim low and will not return to a "normal" brightness until you adjust the turn signal arm. Another alarming issue is on occasion, smoke will appear from the steering column when turning on the lights. The other electrical problem is when turning a corner and accelerating after a stop, the cd player hesitates, or skips as if the power has been switched off. The suspension problem is the noise of metal and banging in the suspension. We had a very dangerous incident happen while on a trip when the upper drivers side control arm disintegrated while driving at highway speed (65 mph). I fought to control the car and managed to get it off the highway to the shoulder of the road. There was no warning or indication that a problem was about to occur. We nearly died. The repair was expensive, and now it appears a similar problem may be occurring on the right side. This electrical system problem happened on Sep. 9, 2011.
#23 - Electrical System problem of the 2001 Chrysler Sebring
The car had a crash. 2001 Chrysler Sebring turns off while driving - the exact same problem as the hundreds of thousands of Chryslers recalled last year. Everyone wants to try a body control module, fuel pump, new crank shaft but the problem keeps occurring - perhaps because they were not aware of this recall/problem as not even my local Chrysler dealership knew. This has happened to me frequently over the past 1. 5-2 years or so, it comes and goes. I was rear ended once but it was light enough (thank god) that it did not cause any damage. Extremely dangerous. Almost a quarter of a million Chrysler vehicles were recalled last year for this problem. As of right now, I believe just van/crossover models - why not all models with this same problem? please leave your complaints on the message boards alone and bring them to NHTSA so that Chrysler can be held accountable for these issues. This issue happened on February 10, 2010.
#24 - Electrical System problem of the 2008 Chrysler Sebring
The car involved is a 2008 Chrysler Sebring. Vehicle identification number (VIN): 1C3LC45K38_. A throttle control warning light appears on the dash off and on at intermittent times the car loses power and dies without warning. It has died on the highway several times so far, but will restart after a few minutes. It seems to happen when the fuel is less than half way full more than any other time and/or when traveling uphill. Rpm dial on the car jumps erratically just before the throttle warning light appears. Problem has not occurred while traveling at less than 45 mph. Afraid that the problem will cause an accident, if it happens when another vehicle is traveling behind me. This electrical system problem happened on Fri., Jun. 17, 2011.
#25 - Electrical System problem of the 2007 Chrysler Sebring
The vehicle having this issue was a 2007 Chrysler Sebring. Purchased 2007 Sebring base model one month ago. Had dealership complete all recalls before purchase. Tail lights attached to the upper portion of the truck flooded/filled with water anytime there was rain and when you open the trunk it dumps the water on your head. All 3 break light seals were replaced and plugs removed to allow better drainage - issue resolved. Emergency break light intermittently illuminates while driving - emerg break is off and new breaks installed issue still unresolved. Delayed auto off headlights did not shut off. Returned to vehicle 2 hours later with daytime running lights still on and since they are automatic there is no way to turn them off. After cycling the engine they shut off, but now fail to come on at all. In the base model there is no feature to turn them "on" or "off" - issue unresolved. The vehicle also refuses to change the setting to turn the "auto unlock" feature "on" when vehicle is put in park. This feature also refuses to work on "first unlock" on the key fob. The doors just continue to stay locked - issue unresolved. I hope mine does not start shutting off on me like so many other complaints. This electrical system problem happened on Nov. 18, 2011.
#26 - Electrical System problem of the 2010 Chrysler Sebring
The vehicle was a 2010 Chrysler Sebring. Vehicle identification number (VIN) of the vehicle is 1C3BC4EB8A_. Well I have been at chysler concerning my brakes, smell of smoke and my engine keep coming on and each time poor customer service. They will not tell me what exactly is going on and I am very upset with the poor customer service. This is taking time from my work and cost consuming. My car has 11,051 miles and that is ridiculous that I go back and forth. I am very upset of the poor service and feel they are not putting the proper parts in my car. My break still squeak and I brought extra warranty for this car. The poor service and deciet is terrible. I am going to the media with this issue. Nothing has not change and I called customer service at the chysler corporate office and they treated me with total disrespect. This problem occurred on Thu., Aug. 18, 2011.
#27 - Electrical System problem of the 2008 Chrysler Sebring
The car was a 2008 Chrysler Sebring. Vehicle identification number (VIN): 1C3LC46K6A_. The car will stall. . With little to no notice. It makes you loose control of the whole car.

#28 - Electrical System problem of the 2008 Chrysler Sebring

#29 - Electrical System problem of the 2007 Chrysler Sebring
The car was a 2007 Chrysler Sebring. The VIN of this vehicle is 1C3LC56R67_. My Sebring stalls when I come to a stop or am traveling at low speeds. The car has stalled in the middle of intersections and is obviously very dangerous to drive. The car additionally lunges at low speeds or when I accelerate. The seatbelt light on the dash goes on and off sporadically. I have determined through personal investigation the wire connection for the seatbelt light is under the driver seat and it doesnt always make a good connection. When the connector is touched the light will go off and on so that tells me that the connector has a short and is faulty. A plastic part in the gear shift has broken and made it impossible to shift without manipluation with a screw driver, and there is a loud clicking sound that comes out of the air condition vent/duct when the ac is turned on. I have owned many vehicles through the years and this is the first car that I have purchased that I am actually scared for my family and I to drive anywhere. I will never again purchase a chrylser, but not just because of the above but because they have not gained my trust. This company should try a new campaign of trying to gain the trust of the consumer, and they could start by accepting the fact that they have many faulty vehicles that need to be recalled and repaired, this is not only good sound advice this would be good business practice. This electrical system issue occurred October 16, 2009.
