Vehicles that are around 96's and up have an OBD-II computer link up. This palm held pluggin unit costs around $125 - $150 ish online or at the autopart stores a bit more.

The beauty of it is it will diagnose your check engine light problems and tell you what it is so you know what to have replaced. It also resets the light and clears the codes.

I purchased one and it has been invaluable as it works on any vehicle 96 and up. From Chevy to Ford to Porsche to Rolls Royce.

If it is a 2007-2010 there is a spring retainer on the shifter that breaks.

That will depend on the problem. Could be $100-$1000.

If the Chrysler Sebring won't start after going through a puddle, the problem is probably that the starter relay switch got wet. This is not a common thing but if the starter relay was bad to begin with, moisture will make the problem worse. The starter relay is located on the starter.

There is a problem with the cam sensor or the wiring to it.

If the 2007 Chrysler Sebring 2.71 is not starting without stater fluid in the air filter is could indicate a faulty starter or the air filer may need replacing.

My wife and I purchased a Sebring (1998) that had the same problem. We were told it is the chip in the key. The key needs to be replaced.

Add gas, crank engine. If it doesn't start in about 30 seconds, it was not out of gas and you have a different problem.

Using a multimeter and spark tester will help find the source of a voltage problem on a 2000 Chrysler Sebring. Having a repair manual on hand will troubleshoot the system, but many electrical problems require tedious sifting through wiring to find the faulty short or ground which is causing an issue.

My 2002 Chrysler Sebring has 154K miles on it and the front end rattles when it goes over bumps. When I jack the car up and push in and out and side to side on the wheels their is no movement. Nothing seems to be lose when I pull on the front end. I had the same problem on my 2002 Sebring Lxi Sedan. Problem was worn swaybar linkage and bushings. I had the linkage and bushing replaced and the rattling disappeared.

I had the same thing happen to my 96 sebring and it turned out it was my radiator cap had lost its seal so took it to jiffy lube paid 8 dollars they put it on no problem since

It is possible a little low on coolant and has an air bubble in the heater core.

I had the same problem...until I had the coolant in the AC system recharged two years ago

The blower resistor has failed.The blower resistor has failed.

unhook battery cables for five or six, but the problem will come back because if the light is on there is fault in the ABS system

check to see if thers a speed sensor unit failure from the transmission.. Had this problem on a Caddy

If you don't have fire at the plug, change the crank sensor first, then the coil.

Air leak in upper manifold, use a double gasket, problem solved! throttle cable stuck,

Too many possibilites to list them all. Take it to a mechanic to diagnose the problem. Then fix it yourself.

The light come on when the system detects a problem and sets a trouble code. You should have it diagnosed by a trained technician. The airbag system is not for do it yourselfers.
