have the exact same problem on a 2001 sebring. we are working on it with mechanic/friend at a Chrysler dealer. problem appears to be either the switch(a one piece unit that controls all this plus the lights)or in a part called the bcm(Body control module). I'll let you know when we figure it out. email me if you want. did your display flicker occasionally before this happened?

Answerthere are two sets of fuses in the sebring.check both the under-hood fuses and also make sure to check the fuse located on the left side of the dashboard. the door must be open to access this fuse block. remove plastic cover from side of dash. on a 2001 sebring lxi, the fuse is in slot # 15. check the fuse marked "turn signal wiper/washer". this will be imprinted on the inside of the plastic cover you removed. when this fuse is blown, you have no signals, no wiper/washer, and no rear defrost. if that doesn't do it, start with the cheapest(easiest) stuff, and work your way to the expensive(hardest)stuff.first, change the relays. next,change the switch. sometimes, if you unplug the body contol module(hard to get to),then plug it in 5 minutes later, it will reset itself and the problem goes away. if not, you might have a bad bcm.they're pricey. most of the time its the fuse on the side of the dash. good luck.

On my 1995 Ford Explorer when the defrost position is selected , and the temperature knob is set in the red area to get heated air to defrost the windshield , the A/C compressor will cycle on and off to help dehumidify the air, but the compressor ONLY cycles on and off in the DEFROST POSITION ( sorry if I'm misinterpretting your question )
