The check engine light is generally to alert you to some condition that is causing the emission control system to malfunction. This could be as simple as a gas cap that is not sealed properly to a fuel injection problem, i.e. to rich .
If the car runs normally with no noise, then try removing & replacing the gas cap correctly. The light should go out in a few minutes. If it doesn't and the engine runs normally, take the car to a service shop when it is convenient. Pepboys, Kragen and Autozone will check it for free.
If the engine runs rough, then slow down & drive carefully to avoid stressing the engine (i.e. no hard acceleration) and get it to a service shop as soon as possible - do not keep driving it, permanent expensive engine damage may result.
Check the rear lower part of engine -- follow the + battery cable
unhook the neg. cable from your battery and wait 5 minutes

After repairing the cause, you can reset with a scan tool or by unhooking the battery.
find out what it is.... (preferably with a scanner) fix it... , clear codes with scanner
The Concorde could misfire for several reasons. Start by checking for proper fire to the spark plugs. Then check engine compression to see if a cylinder compression is down.
After fixing the cause of the problem. you clear code with a scan tool, or by unhooking the battery.
check the battery and or alternator
The same place you check it.
this issue is usually caused by the output speed sensor. that is a common problem with all Chrysler products. it is located on the transmission
The way to know for sure is to contact any salvage yard and ask them to check engine interchangability in their HOLLANDER cross reference. Then you will know for sure.
Refine your question with following info: Is there a check engine light? are any fuses blown? Have recent repairs been made?
The TCM (trans computer) has detected a problem and set a code. This causes the trans to go into safe mode and not shift. Have it checked for codes.
Chrysler does not have reset switches. You need to check for trouble codes with a scan tool.Chrysler does not have reset switches. You need to check for trouble codes with a scan tool.
You can not disconnect the check engine light.
With a scan tool.
Trouble code P0601 means:Internal control module memory check sum error
The light comes on when there is an emissions related failure and the pcm sets a code.
Check for fuel and spark. Could be bad coil pack or fuel pump.
Check the sticker on the drivers door jamb. The original tire size should be listed there.
Engine running in Park. Pull the transmisssion dipstick (under the hood, driver side of motor). Wipe off stick, reinsert, pull out and check fluid level. The dipstick will have cold and hot levels.
With a scan tool.
The best place to find an engine diagram for a Chrysler Sebring would be in the owner's manual. If you do not have your, contact Chrysler or check your library.
A flashing check engine light is an indication of a severe engine misfire.
The check engine light stays on when the engine computer has detected a malfunction and set a trouble code.
