I don't think its right that as a single mother I had to jeopardize my electric payment to fix a car that should have been placed on the recall list what robbery right now - had I not acted quickly thank god for my cdl training to be in the lane of least resistance. . . If not I would be here maybe not even my children . . .

Air bag sensor will not turn off. It stays on while I am driving and while the car is at rest. It has been doing this for almost two weeks. I know that it is not the weight because I do not have anyone or anything sitting in the passenger seat. And even if someone is sitting in the passenger seat it still stays on.

This is a safety issue not only for the driver of the car the others on the road with them! I was just going down the road and the horn starting going off all by itself. Finally took out the fuse. The horn just goes off randomly. It went off when hitting unlock button on remote and or just driving. Then took it to my mechanic and he said that the horn pad assembly which was a dealer only part had to be replaced some sensor or something. So right now I have just left the fuse out, because it is an expensive fix. $1000. 00. I agree with all of the other people that Chrysler should be fixing this issue. Removing the fuse has caused the air bag functions to be unknown. Removing the fuse to stop the horn also affects part of the fueling system according to the manual (same fuse). Removing the fuse has caused us not to be able to use our horn incase something ran in front of the car or to alarm others of harm. The horn is a function of safety and warning. This is standard on all cars as a precaution and warning system. This is not a part of the car that is special ordered, these come standard with all cars. So why is Chrysler not paying for this safety issue? your company has been run into the ground with recalls and safety measures not being taken seriously enough. Time to act on this situation; with over 70 complaints this must not be a whim. Sad part is this is not the only issue with this car three recalls on it and the dealer sold the car anyway without repairing recalls.

December of 2002 - rear window defogger quit. Wire connector came loose from rear window. Could not be repaired. Window had to be replaced to fix problem. May of 2004 - air bag indicator came on and chime sounded. Sensor or some sort replaced at an expense of over $300. 00 June of 2005 - repeat or above problem. Appointment to bring car in for servicing on June 28th. June of 2005 - repeat of rear window defogger. Item has not worked for months. I have run a report on mycarstats. Com and have found both of these problems with other owners of this model. Appears we have a problem here. I should not have had to pay for the air bag problem the first time and I certainly shouldn't have to pay next week when I bring it in for servicing.
Dt consumer states the seat belt buckle will break while snapping into the latch. Consumer states the dealer s fixed the seat belt buckles twice. Also when putting on the brakes the back seat is all one piece and it will go forward and will rise up going toward the front seats. Consumer states on the passengers side the air bag cover is warped, and the dealership stated if involved in a car accident the air bag would not deploy. Consumer stated they started noticing these problems on January 16, 2005.
1. Airbag light intermittently goes on. . No accident or damage yet 3. Multiple trips to service dealer to fix seats, seat belts, and air bag light/sensor.
Air bag light came on intermittently while driving. Dealer was notified. Also, seat belt retractor needed to be replaced.
2001 Sebring airbag light illuminates. The dealer replaced the passenger air bag seat belt sensor, however after about a week, the light would illuminate again. The consumer heard a noise in the steering wheel while making turns.
The contact stated the srs light came on intermittently. The first time he took the vehicle to the dealership, and they were unable to diagnose the problem. The second time, they replaced the retracting spring in the passenger's side seat belt. The problem recurred. The dealership replaced the clock spring in the steering column and the retractor spring in the seat belt. The vehicle is currently at the dealership being repaired.
Air bag sensor and indicator light.
Engine light sensor, air bag sensor keeps coming on. Took in to dealer for engine light sensor 3 months ago to correct that. Today, took in to dealer for air bag sensor light which kept coming on every 10 seconds. Dealer stated because of a bad sensor in the seatbelt contraption air bag light was coming on--doesn't make sense to me. So, of course they had to order some kind of part to the tune of 118 dollars plus labor so bill was 330 dollars to fix something which I believe is defective and their fault. What the air bag light has to do with the seat belt is beyond me. Noticed a similiar complaint on your site dated September 30, 2004 at 03:21 pm for same model car. I think this needs to be investigated. As the person stated in their complaint, air bag can deploy for no reason, or air bag will not deploy in the event of accident. I believe this is a severe safety issue here.
I have leased my 2002 Sebring convertiable lxi on sept 9, 2002 since then the car has been back for numerous times. Beginning not even 3 months and 500 miles into lease. I started having problems with it. Electrical (air bag light, altertator light, engine light, driver side heated seat), transmission has recently had been serviced and parts have been replaced, I have been telling Chrysler (dealership) since about 500 miles and they told me it wasn't anything, they recently replaced a couple of things at about 26,866. I was having and still having trouble with the ignition key not coming out of the ignition on my last service (March 04) they've replaced the ignition collar. I have tried to return or trade in for a new Chrysler car but they say since I am in a lease there's nothing I could do about it. The air bag light is still coming on every 10 seconds since my last service March 04 but they say nothing is wrong. From what I understand correctly there's two things that could happen 1. Air bag will not deplote if I was in an accident and 2. It could deplote at any given time while I'm driving. So needless to say I do not feel safe driving this car. The dealership doesn't seem to care. Can you help me .
While driving vehicle hit another car in the rear and totaled the veihcle and neither air bag deployed. The dealer said that the body sensor had been pushed back 2-21/2 feet. A lso the dealer said that there was no air code in the computer system.
