If it's anything like the '98 model, the battery is located behind a panel in the wheel well of the front driver's side. The owner's manual says you can turn the wheel outward towards the left as far as possible and get to it, but they must think we all own a garage lift. Get the jack out of your tr…unk, because you are going to have to remove the front driver's side tire and wheel to have enough room to work here. You will also need a Phillips head screw driver to remove the panel, which has aobut 8 - 10 screws holding it in place. The panel cover is located at the front of the wheel well, to your left. Remove all the screws, pull the panel cover off, unhook the battery cables, (you'll need a wrench for that)and replace the battery. Mine was a side post battery, so make sure you are getting the correct replacement, about $59 at AutoZone. Replace the cover, put your tire back on, and you're done. Thank goodness they have changed this in later models, I'd like to club whover had this idea like a baby seal. Not an easy job for a female, unless you're machanically inclined, and have enough muscle to lift the battery from a kneeling position. (MORE)
Fuel filter is above fuel tank.The fuel tank must be slightly lowered. That is why there is a drain plug to drain fuel before doing this job.
The fuel filter is located above the rear of the fuel tank. You will need to drop the fuel tank down about 10 to 12 inches, as the fuel lines allow, and disconnect the three fuel lines. There is one that is connected to the fuel filter and two connected to the fuel module (pump). Be sure the fuel ta…nk is almost empty before you try to lower it. Answer Under the car in the fuel line. answer exactly. quote from the Chrysler sebring manual The fuel filter mounts to the frame above the rear of the fuel tank. The inlet and outlet tubes are permanently attached to the filter. it is just forward of the rear cross-member that is between the rear wheels. (MORE)

Answer . it should be just to the right of the passenger side fog light inside the front bumper.
Answer . behind the headlight is a locking ring with a electrical connector going to it. the locking ring twists off. twist it counterclockwise about a 1/3 of a turn and it should just pull off. Disconnect the wire connector by gently pulling upward on the tab and pulling away from the front of …the bulb. then take your new bulb, place the ring on it and place it into the headlight housing without touching the bulb if at all possible. twist the locking ring clockwise until it stops or 1/3 of a turn and reconnect the wire harness. \n. \nthere are some orientation grooves in the bulb and on the headlight housing to make sure the bulb is in the correct position. if these arent lined up you will not be able to twist on the locking ring. the electrical connector is also a shaped connector which will not allow you to install it improperly without extreme force to insert it into the connector.

I had the same problem on my girlfriends car and it was a easy fix, the dome light switch on the door was not being pushed in all the way when the door was closed, so i put a screw in the door jamb where the button hit it and it fixed the problem, this will help push the button in more, and you shou…ld have no more problem with the dome light coming on.

There are two hoses that exit the heater core directly behind the engine, towards the left. They are secured to the heater core with conventional clamps & extend to the drivers side of the car where they connect to steel tubes that terminate in the engine with slip fit O rings and a support bracket.… One of the hoses connects to it's steel tube with a conventional clamp & the other with a "special" fitting that is part of the hose. The hoses have preformed bends in them to wrap around the back of the engine. They are very difficult to replace. I removed the air intake "horn" to gain access to the heater core ends & removed the distributor to access & remove the steel tubing from the engine. Mine were leaking at the O rings as well as at the tubing to hose connection. (MORE)

The one thing I would do is go to Wal*Mart, and find the book for the make and model of the car, and buy it. Go home and take out the bulb and go buy one and then install it yourself.

The check engine light (service engine soon) comes on and stays on when a problem is detected by the self diagnosis system of your vehicle. Generally, the problem is in the emissions or something that is affecting the effectiveness of the emissions, but other causes can trigger the light to come on,… too. To determine the cause, the vehicle will need to be taken to AutoZone or a shop that has an OBD2 scanner, or for 1995 and earlier models, an OBD1 scanner, While a scanner will not give you the magic answer, it will give you a code that narrows down the problem area.

Possibly the crank sensor or the coil pack is dead. But with a dead crank sensor you also get no spark, no crank. No crank equals no fuel delivery.
The fuel diagram sticker should be under the hood in the right hand corner up front
Its a tricky one. You have to unscrew the water pump in order to move it out of the way to get to one of the screws on the Alternator.

Why would a 1997 Chrysler sebring come up as a misfire it wants to start but won't turn over it has gas spark and compression?
check the firing order. just because its getting spark doesnt mean its in the correct cylinder. you may also have a bad plug. a fowled plug will spark but not long enough or hot enough to ignite the fuel. last thing i would check are the wires. there may be a break somewhere in it that keeps it from… firing all the time.
