Sebring 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 23,120 miles
After driving car and leaving it parked for 2 days; when going to start it again, the horn didn't work properly (really weak!), and it wouldn't start until several attempts and giving it gas. Also......the rear right side window defrost (wire harness that is soldered to window) popped off the window without reason. When repaired at dealership, the guy said it was the 3rd one he had fixed recently and it was always on the same side of the vehicle. This could cause window to fog up. Also approximately Jan of 2005 I went in to a dealership because a strange noise was coming from my rear left suspension/wheel. It made squealing/grinding noise when turning or over bumps. They couldn't find the problem......suggested to get rotor turned.....maybe it did help!

When driving horn will not blow. When the vehicle was not in motion, the horn blew in 2 second intervals. Consumer contacted the dealer and the manufacturer, and neither was willing to assist the consumer. They told consumer that the problem was being worked on.

Horn is not functioning properly. It has been in to the dealership approx. 4 times for this problem, and it still does not work. It appears to be some kind of electrical short or malfunction. The horn does not work properly to be used as a safety device. This has potential to have dire consequences.
