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.

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?.

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?.

Whitish/grayish smoke was billowing out of front end of car. Patrons driving alerted us & we exited vehicle. As we vacated vehicle we realized purse was still in vehicle, we ran to retrieve it & as we retrieved belongings, fire engulfed front end of vehicle & shot through front of vehicle & engulfed the entire front portion of vehicle & inside of vehicle. Power steering fluid dripped on engine which ignited the fire.

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?.
