  • Ironically enough, its also Hunter Green, but with a black top, black leather interior, and the gold rims as well. I've had this car since 2001 and its been great to me the whole time I've owned it, and now has 71,000 miles, but I have to sell it soon, and honestly I do not want to. However, my son is about to turn 16 and one of the two cars he wants is a 2000 Chrysler Sebring LXi Coupe, so i shouldn't be TO big of a loss for me if he goes that direction. (I hope he does.)
  • I have had an inside driver door handle on back order for my 2002 Chrysler Sebring Convertable for 5 months and still cannot get a date for arrival. I have learned that nationwide there are over 186 of these door handles on back order and Customer Care has no idea where they get them from or when they will be available. I assure you that if I get in an accident and cannot get out, my heirs know that they should hire an attorney and hold Chrysler responsible. I have kept a log of all the phone calls with dates and times and names of those spoken to. If Chrysler wants to know why they have financial problems all they need to do is look at how they handle customer service. This is not the first problem I have had with my Sebring....I had to put in a new transmission at 50,000 miles and was told by the mechanic that I should plan on a new one every 50,000 miles. IS THIS ANY WAY TO RUN A COMPANY.

    Does anyone know what the "IKT" cicuit controls?
  • I've just purchased a '99 sebring LXI (V6, 2 door, sunroof) without any kind of owner's manual.
    I am trying to find out how to "program" the garage door opener control buttons (built into the driver-side visor).
    Any specific instructions or help u could offer would be greatly appreciated.!
    Thanks again for your time.

  • I have contacted Chrysler customer support regarding this 9 months ago and am still waiting. :P They put me on a Priority status. Still no door handle. They keep saying I will have one the following month. Turns out there are over 250 of us who do not have inside drivers door handles and they are back to saying again it will be another month. The local dealer told me that the place that used to manufacture the part went out of business and they are looking for a new manufacturer and I should have the handle next month. This has been going on for 9 months. All I want to do is sell this sucker. I had to replace the transmission at 50,000 miles I am going back to foreign made. At least they stayed together and ran. I have checked junk yards and after market parts companies to no avail. And Chrysler wonders why they are in financial trouble If anyone knows of where to get this handle let me know. It is a 2002 Sebring convertible and I don't care if the handle is not chrome at this point I will take anything. :lemon:

    I am trying to find out how to "program" the garage door opener control buttons (built into the driver-side visor).

    Did you try a Google search? I found the link below in just a few seconds. If the procedure doesn't work I'll post instructions on how to do it on an 07. It's probably not much different.

    I am trying to find out how to "program" the garage door opener control buttons (built into the driver-side visor).

    Okay, I was bored this afternoon and so I scanned my owner's manual on how to program the button. This is for an 07 Sebring.

    GARAGE DOOR OPENER (HomeLink®) — IF EQUIPPED
    The HomeLink® Universal Transceiver replaces up to three remote controls (hand held transmitters) that operate devices such as garage door openers, motorized gates, or home lighting. It triggers these devices at the push of a button. The Universal Transceiver operates off your vehicle's battery and charging system; no batteries are needed.

    NOTE: The HomeLink® Universal Transceiver is disabled when the Vehicle Security Alarm is active.

    For additional information on HomeLink,® call 1-800-355-3515, or on the Internet at www.homelink.com.

    The three buttons for your garage door opener will be located in the driver's sunvisor. The training procedure is the same regardless of the 3-button location.

    Programming The Universal Transceiver (HomeLink®)
    NOTE: When programming a garage door opener, it is advised to park outside the garage with the engine off. It is also recommended that you install a new battery in the hand-held transmitter of the device being programmed. This will allow for quicker training and accurate transmission of the radio-frequency signal.

    If your garage door opener (located in the garage) is equipped with an antenna, make sure that the antenna is hanging straight down.

    1. Erase the factory test codes by pressing the two outside buttons. Release the buttons when the light in the Universal Transceiver begins to flash (about 20 seconds).

    NOTE: Step 1 above does not have to be followed to program additional hand-held transmitters.

    2. Choose one of the three Universal Transceiver buttons to program. Position the end of your hand-held transmitter 1-3 inches (3-8 cm) away from the HomeLink buttons while keeping its indicator light in view.

    3. Simultaneously press and hold the HomeLink button (that you want to train) and the hand-held transmit button. Do not release the buttons until Step 4 is complete.

    NOTE: Some gate operators and garage door openers may require you to replace this Programming Step 3 with procedures noted under "Gate Operator/Canadian Programming."

    4. The indicator light in the Universal Transceiver will begin to flash, first slowly and then rapidly. The rapid flashing indicates successful programming. If after 90 seconds the indicator light does not flash rapidly or goes out, return to step 1 and repeat the procedure. To train the other buttons, repeat steps 3 and 4. Be sure to keep your hand-held transmitters in case you need to retrain the Universal Transceiver.

    NOTE: To program the remaining two HomeLink buttons, begin with "Programming" Step Two. Do not repeat Step One.

    NOTE: If your garage door opener fails to respond to the programmed HomeLink® Universal Transceiver, and your garage door opener is manufactured after 1995, it may have a multiple security code system (rolling code system). If your garage door opener is the "rolling code" type, please proceed to the heading "Programming A Rolling Code System."

    Programming A "Rolling Code" System
    On garage door openers with the "Rolling Code" feature, the transmitter code changes after each use to prevent the copying of your code.

    NOTE: The assistance of a second person may make the following programming procedure quicker and easier.

    1. Locate the training button on the garage door motor head unit. The exact location and color of the button may vary by garage door opener manufacturer. If you have difficulty in locating the training button, check your garage door opener manual, or call 1-800-355-3515 or, on the Internet, at www.homelink.com.

    2. Press and hold the training button on the garage door opener head unit. This will activate the "training" light.

    NOTE: After completing step 2, you have 30 seconds to start step 3.

    3. Return to the Universal Transceiver in the vehicle and firmly press and release the garage door button. Press and release the button a second time to complete the training process. Some garage door openers may require you to do this procedure a third time to complete the training.

    Canadian Programming/Gate Programming
    Canadian radio-frequency laws require transmitter signals to "time-out" (or quit) after several seconds of transmission, which may not be long enough for HomeLink to pick up the signal during programming. Similar to this Canadian law, some U.S. gate operators are designed to "time-out" in the same manner.

    If you live in Canada or you are having difficulties programming a gate operator by using the "Programming" procedures (regardless of where you live), replace "Programming HomeLink" Step 3 with the following:

    3. Continue to press and hold the HomeLink button while you press and release your hand-held transmitter every two seconds until the frequency signal is accepted successfully by HomeLink. The Universal Transceiver light will flash slowly and then rapidly when the programming is successful. Proceed with "Programming HomeLink" Step 4 to complete the procedure.

    NOTE: When programming such a garage door opener or gate, unplug the device to prevent possible damage to the garage door or gate motor.

    Using HomeLink
    To operate, simply press and release the programmed HomeLink button. Activation will now occur for the trained device (i.e. garage door opener, gate operator, security system, entry door lock, home/off ice lighting, etc.). The light in the display shows that the signal is being transmitted. For convenience, the hand-held transmitter of the device may also be used at any time.

    Erasing HomeLink Buttons
    To erase programming from the three buttons (individual buttons cannot be erased but can be "reprogrammed" -note below), follow the step noted:

    Press and hold the two outer HomeLink buttons (for approximately 20 seconds). Release the buttons when the indicator begins to flash rapidly. All three channels will be cleared.

    Reprogramming a Single HomeLink Button
    To program a device with a previously trained HomeLink button, follow these steps:

    1. Press and hold the Universal Transceiver button to be reprogrammed. Do not release until step 4 has been completed.

    2. When the indicator light begins to flash slowly (after 20 seconds), position the hand held transmitter one to three inches away from the button to be trained.

    3. Press and hold the hand held transmitter button.

    4. The Universal Transceiver indicator light will begin to flash, first slowly, then rapidly. When the indicator lights begin to flash rapidly, release both buttons.

    Security
    If you sell your vehicle, be sure to erase the frequencies by following the "Erasing HomeLink Buttons" instructions.
  • That did the trick! Thank you so very, very much.

    I agree with you. My 05 Sebring pucked its tranny at 32K miles. It was out of service for a month and a half. After that it was an assortment of various quality issues and numerous trips to the shop. After 14 Chryslers - this is my last one. A friend of mine at work bought a 07 Sebring for his daughter - they're now trying to lemon-law it.

  • I have a 2002 chrysler sebring 2.7L v6. I cannot get to the back 3 spark plugs to change them out and cannot get to the air filter...Can someone guide me in how to do these tasks please? :sick:
  • My Sebring is a '99 so this might not help, but I had my spark plugs changed at 100,000 miles and the mechanic could only reach the rear set from UNDER the car. He cursed all the time he was changing those plugs, so I could see that it was not an easy job. As for the air filter, on the '99s it is right up front, so they must have moved it on the '02s.

    My Sebring, by the way, is one of the best Chryslers I've ever owned - and I bought my first Chrysler product in 1962 - and I have four of them in my carport right now, from a '57 through an '05 and I have no complaints about any of them.

    Whoa! What's the 57?
  • Hi KarenS
    I do not know if you are still working there .,because your message is dated 2001
    I am new here I bought a brand new sebring 2007 on December last year one of the reason was it had a discount because the year was almost over and they wanted to sell all 07 vehicles, so any way after a month I bought it I started felling when you put the brakes on when you are coming to a stop, it push is it self or pull it self to the front , like one of the member here describe it a shimmy,vibration or pulse.
    I already took it to the dealer and they " did not find anything wrong " but it still
    keeps doing it and I think even a little harder and I only have three months with this car!!
    Do you know anything about this or anyone else with the same problem?
    thank you in advance for your attention to this matter
    Regards

    Hi, yoyis2024,

    I see that you've already found the Sebring Brakes Problems topic, where it looks as though several members have been describing this problem for a couple of years. Please feel free to continue the discussion there. Hope you find an answer soon :)

    Hey im looking at a red 1999 Chrysler Sebring JXI Convertible to buy but my friend thinks it is a womans car what do you all think?
  • cliff11cliff11 Posts: 10
    I have recently passed the 20,000. mark on my 07 Sebring with no major problems (I did have to replace a light bulb). The mileage just keeps improving as the engine gets broken in (averaging 40 mpg on long trips), and the car still feels like brand new!. This is my 11th new vehicle and is by far my favorite in quality, luxury. and reliability. This is my first Chrysler and I wonder why I waited to long to own one.
  • Not a chance! Sounds like your friend has been watching too many episodes of "Two and a Half Men". I've had my '99 convertible since it was 6 months old and it attracts attention from both men and women. The president of our home owners association practically drools everytime I drive it to meetings. It's been a fantastic car and the only trouble I've ever had with it is a catalytic converter that failed (I got some bad gas somewhere along the way) and the A/C compressor self-destructed last summer, but those were not major problems, in my opinion. And Chrysler paid every penny of the cost to replace the converter. On top of that, the car still gets 32 MPG on the highway and even the top, leather, body, etc. are still in perfect condition. Not bad for a car that's almost 10 years old.
