I was riding on the highway with my daughter in passenger seat when suddenly my engine light started blinking and the RPM's shot up to about 7,000 and continued if accelerator was press. I immediately pulled over. Call aaa to have car towed to my destination. The car was now in what is called limp mode and has been for 2 months now.

The contact owns a 2007 Chrysler Sebring. While attempting to accelerate from a traffic light, the vehicle hesitated to move. Also, all the instrument panel lighting went out. After a few seconds, the vehicle drove normally to the contact's residence. The following day, the vehicle would not start. The contact also mentioned that the battery was replaced in August of 2019. The vehicle was not taken to the dealer or an independent mechanic for diagnostic testing. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The vehicle was not repaired. The approximate failure mileage was 150,000.

Fuse box completely shorted out and there was a burning smell. Car stalls without warning in traffic and on the highway and will not start. The car will crank but won't start leaving the vehicle disabled in the middle of traffic. The vehicle also can be parked and not start. Cranks but won't start. It has happened on more than 4 occasions 1 of the times my children were in the car and we were on the freeway. Another time I was alone on the freeway and another time I was stopped at a stoplight and it died and would not start leaving me stranded in the middle of the road in rush hour traffic. All other times have been when the car was parked. The date below is the most recent incident.

The airbag light has been in for a long time. I know someone that has the same car and their car has the same issue. Also the true gage reader is malfunctioning. Now I have problems with the car stalling on the roadway. I called Chrysler about the recalls and the said everything has been taken care of. They couldn't tell me who brought the car in fir repairs. I've had the car for 8 years. I dont think the issues have been resolved. They should at least be able to see who brought the car in fir the repairs. The headlights will sometimes go off when going around turns. I met the previous owner and he told me that these issues are why he got rid of the car. Please help me get the recalls fixed so something bad doesn't happen to us in this car.

My instrument panel has no background lights, they do T turn on at all. I took it into a local shop and they said all the fuse are good and they think it might be a modgular (battery) that needs to be replaced. I have seen a lot of other owners having this same issue with their Sebring as well.

I've put 2 starters on my 2007 chysler Sebring in the last 3 months. The car starts greats then while driving it starts to make this loud grinding noise and once you cut the car off it just clicks. This time it did the same thing but this time when I cut the car off it kept running and I had to go turn the ignition switch off again and of course it won't start.

The defective integrated power module (tipm) would cause my vehicle to do strange things. Like loose complete power while driving on the highway or in town. Also effects where starter cranks but wont start. Battery would be drained for no reason. I have the vehicle in the shop right now getting that part replaced. I asked them what did they find out about my vehicle after a couple of days of them working on it and they stated they where unsure still working on it. They gave me a call back a few days later and they stated that the issue is the tipm and that they got that info from Chrysler because they eventually had to contact them to see if they knew what the issue was and that they told them that this is a very common issue in Chrysler vehicles made from 2007 to 2014. To me this part on Chrysler vehicles should be a recall for 0ne it is very dangerous for your vehicle to loose power while driving and also the fact that they know this is an issue.

Dashboard was dim with airbag indicator light always on when purchased. The problems started with dashboard lights going in and out and the wipers not working properly around November of last year. Was told fuses needed to be changed, so they were. Same issue. Then 3 months ago taillight bulb went out, changed it and the taillights have not worked since. Was told it has to be taken to dealer authorized shop for electrical box repair after taking car to three different shops who all said they could not find the issue. Today battery looking light came on and before I could turn around to go back home the car immediately shut off and would not start without a jump. The lightning bolt in parentheses came up and car accelerated without my foot being on gas but would not go above 30 mph once I made it home it turned off and refuses to start 6 hrs later. The battery light, lightning bolt symbol and airbag lights all show on dash and will not go off.

I am very concerned about my airbag light coming on 1-2 times a month. Does that mean the air bags may suddenly deploy while I am sitting at a light, or not deploy when involved in a crash? my second concern is that my dashboard lights started dimming and eventually went out on their own. I cannot drive at night any more.I took it to a mechanic and thinking it was a simple fuse problem. No, it has to do with the mechanic removing the dashboard and going into the instrument cluster box and replacing simething in there. I have been quoted $350-to $375 dollars.cannot afford that. My new problem: Driving home, getting ready to back up my drive way, the car is running hot, when I went to shift from drive to reverse, the car cut off.had a hard time taking the carout of reverse to park. Like it was stuck or jammed.my neighbors came out to help push it out of the middle of the street and the front wheels were locked. The men eventually got it pushed to the side of the street. The car starts an run S with no problem my mechanis tells me it is the gear shifter cable us broken. I thought tose were made to last in a car. My car is now locked in park until I canget that fixed. As a senior on a fixed income I cannot afford to drive this old car I have sadly paid for.

The car will stop suddenly while driving I've been told its an electrical issue in the transmission, but I see from the recalls that Chrysler knows about these issues yet these cars are still been sold and driven even though they can have very dangerous consequences. The doors locks and unlocks on their own, the lights flicker. The car will also while in park jerk and rev as if someone is hitting the gas even though they are not, this also happens when in drive and my foot is on the break

Dashboard lights intermittently turn on and off while car is on and driving; especially the'airbag' and 'check engine' and "exclamation point' lights. The 'check engine' light is always on and blinks while in drive. While the check engine is blinking, the car drives slower and does not pick up speed past 20 mph. All spark plugs have been changed as well as the cranks sensor.
