problem #2

Oct 012001


  • miles
Accelerator stuck at 60 mph and it was due to a frayed cable. Chrysler dealer said that it happened to most of the Sebring conv. The current cable is discontinued from Chrysler and a new throttle body must be purchased for the new cable to be installed. Dealer said that a new aftermarket replacement cable would be unsafe due to its design and are forbidden to install anything but the new "safer" cable.
