Sebring 6-cyl

  • 71,354 miles
I have a 2002 sebring limited convertible that he had purchased in August 2012 with at the time just over 64K on the digital clock. It now has just over 71K on it. A few months before this I had an electrical issue that looked like a burned wire somewhere and a puff of smoke under the drivers side engine compartment. I tightened up the loose remote ground on the strut tower and everything was fine. A few weeks late I turned the car off and restarted and it was fine. Well about 2 weeks ago I went down to the doctors office and back and armed the security system like normal. Later I happened to look in the car and the security light was not flashing. I open the door and there is no miles on odometer, no dash response from the gauges, warning lights except for the E-brake light and oil pressure light. Also no horn, wipers, dome lights, trunk release, power door locks/keyless entry, ac, rear defroster, dash lights, warning lights, the trip computer indicates the compass heading but nothing else, no power top or heated seats either. Now, here's what's working. The car starts and seems to drive as normal, I have as I said the E-brake light and the oil pressure light on the dash, the power windows, outside lights, turn signals and hazards, reverse lights, radio/amp, power mirrors. The transmission indicator on the dash. I basically now own a 2500lb paperweight.

I bought the car brand new, added the extended warranty and had several things go wrong. Just to name a few: Engine shut down without warning and had to be replaced when it was just over the 100,000 mile warranty even though oil changes and regular maintenance was done 3-4000 miles, transmission pan had metal shavings in it which resulted in poor performance, control arm had to be replaced after Chrysler dealership told me the problem was the motor mounts(I did not need the mounts replaced and the repair was not done under warranty), water pump & thermostat housing(was told both weren't covered and should have been), rear window defroster replaced and/or fixed three times, driver power window regulator replaced(glass had to be replaced because of damage from the regulator, which I paid), visor vanity light-part ordered but "too late" when tried to have it replaced(was not notified that part was in), dash lights-on & off, headlights replace several times, hub seal replaced, passenger seat adjust arm broken, lighter inoperative, check engine light on first month I had the car!
