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.
If it's stuck in defrost your battery died and messed up the computer. Disconnect battery for 5 or more min. Reconnect and it should ok then.
no, only with defrost or ac on or if coolant temp is hot enough
If this is the terminal mounted on the window, clear silicone is best.
The fastest way to defrost a windshield is to turn the defrost vent on without heat or simply open the windows. Another option is to warm the inside of the car by turning the heater on.
no heat to front window went defrost is on
on the dash below the windshield.
does fan door motorized or on a vaccuum line when you switch from AC to defrost?
It is supposed to work that way. The AC is used to help remove excess moisture from the interior air so that the defroster can clear the window more efficiently.
The 2005 Chrysler 300 rear window defrost relay switch can be found beneath the drivers side dashboard. The rear window defrost relay switch will be near the center console.
Yes, the ac will run in the defrost position to dry the windshield.
Start driving with your air conditioning on defrost, the AC will defog the windshield but you need to be moving.
Your battery went dead sometime it messed up the computer. Disconnect the ground for 5 or more min. Reconnect and it should work Mine was stuck in defrost
Remove frost or ice from (the windshield of a motor vehicle).Thaw (frozen food) before cooking it.
Yes, the windshield defroster will turn the A/C compressor on.
If it's stuck in defrost your battery died and messed up the computer. Disconnect battery for 5 or more min. My 96 cooled and heated ok but was stuck in defrost
If it only does this after a rain, chances are you have a leaking windshield. Or the aircond. drain is clogged, even if you are only using the defrost with heat the air-cond. runs with the defrost.
that usually indicates a vacuum leak which causes the system to go into default mode, which is defrost.
Sounds like a stuck blend door.
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 )
With many vehicles, if the defrost mode is on, the ac will continue to run. This helps to clear the inside windshield from moisture.
Check the vacuum supply from the engine. If it is disconnected or cracked the system will default to defrost only.
Cold air from the defrost indicates that the air doors are in the wrong position. The doors are vacuum controlled in most vehicles. check the vacuum system for a leak.

Check your ductwork under the dash it sounds like it has come loose not a big deal to do.
The radio antenna is located on the rear windshield. It is the thin raised black line that looks like the defrost elements.
