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 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?.

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?.

As fire firefighters extinguished the first fire & as the first fire died down the vehicle erupted in flames once again which was ignited by fuel.
