  • No but I know how you can upgrade your lights to HIDs (not the fakes) that will dress it up further.

    I purchased a '98 Sebring JX convertible and am very happy with it - but - I did not get an owner's manual with the car. I am trying to find a list of all the light bulbs used in this car. The Haynes manual does not have such a list and I cannot find anything on the web.

    My intent is to upgrade the headlights and brake lights to brighter bulbs. I would also be interested in brighetr bulbs for marker lights.

    Does anyone have an owner's manual with a bulb application list for the '98 JX?

    Also - any experience or advice concerning the much advertised brighetr headlight bulbs?

    Any experience or advice about brighter bulbs for the other lights on these cars?

    Many thanks

    In my search for the same info, I came across this info -- Otherwise, the only other options is going to the dealer which runs about $40. Good luck.

    MODELS:
    1995 - 1998 (FJ) Avenger/Sebring/Talon

    The listed models are shipped from the factory with only one key FOB transmitter. If
    a second FOB is added, it must be purchased through MOPAR and is not considered a warrantable item.

    Whenever a second FOB is programmed, the original FOB must also be re-programmed. If the original FOB is not re-programmed with the second FOB, the original FOB will not function.

    The following two procedures are available to program key FOB transmitters.

    Programming Procedures With The DRB III(R).
    1. Connect the scan tool to the vehicle and power it up.
    2. Select scan tool stand alone mode, current model year diagnostics, then body.
    3. The screen will ask if this is a 95-99 Avenger/Sebring/Talon, select yes.
    4. Follow the directions and prompts on the scan tool screen as follows:
    a. Close all doors, turn ignition key to off.
    b. Turn ignition key to Accessory.
    c. Turn ignition key to off, door locks will cycle once (in programming mode).
    d. For each key FOB, press any button 3 times in a row to program code. When
    programming is complete, the door locks will cycle once.
    NOTE:
    IF A SECOND KEY FOB REQUIRES PROGRAMMING, IT MUST BE PROGRAMMED WITHIN 1 MINUTE OF
    THE FIRST FOB PROGRAMMING. PRESS ANY BUTTON ON THE SECOND FOB 3 TIMES TO PROGRAM
    ITS CODE. WHEN PROGRAMMING IS COMPLETE, THE DOOR LOCKS WILL CYCLE ONCE.

    5. The programming mode finishes after the following:
    a. Programming of two key FOBS is completed.
    b. One minute has passed since programming.
    c. Scan tool is disconnected.
    d. Ignition switch is turned on.
    e. Any of the doors are opened.

    Manual Programming Procedure (non scan tool)
    1. Connect pin 1 of the 16-way data link connector to chassis ground or to pin 4 of
    the 16-way data link connector.
    2. Close all doors, turn ignition key to off.
    3. Turn ignition key to Accessory.

    4. Turn ignition key to off, door locks will cycle once (in programming mode).
    5. For each key FOB, press any button 3 times in a row to program code. When
    programming is complete, the door locks will cycle once.

    NOTE:
    IF A SECOND KEY FOB REQUIRES PROGRAMMING, IT MUST BE PROGRAMMED WITHIN 1 MINUTE OF
    THE FIRST FOB PROGRAMMING. PRESS ANY BUTTON ON THE SECOND FOB 3 TIMES TO PROGRAM
    ITS CODE. WHEN PROGRAMMING IS COMPLETE, THE DOOR LOCKS WILL CYCLE ONCE.

    6. The programming mode finishes after the following:
    a. Programming of two key FOBS is completed.
    b. One minute has passed since programming.
    c. Pin 1 of 16-way data link connector is removed from ground connection.
    d. Ignition switch is turned on.
    e. Any of the doors are opened.

    I just purchased a 2001 Sebring convertible LX. It doesn't have a lot of extras. I was wondering easy it would be to add the homelink visor and a trip computer? Does anyone know if the wiring harenesses are there?
  • first of all I would like to say hello all (newbie here)
    I recently purchased a used chrysler sebring lxi (99) back in march, and now am concidering making some serious modifications to it something that crossed my mind was dropping in a 6g72tt motor in place of the stock 6g73. my first question would be will the motor fit and secondly how many problems will I run into trying to do something as crazy as that.
  • Is there any other way other than the "purchase a new fob for $100" to get this working again?

    Thanks

    ps yep, changed batteries....

    ps yep, changed batteries....


    Did you really expect us to think that anyone named Da Bunny (as in the Energizer) might not have tried changing the batteries? :)

    On the subject of fobs, does anyone know what the term "fob" refers to? Is it an acronym? Is it a name unto itself?

    I asked the sales manager, who had spent his entire career selling cars that. He found the question humorous for three reasons. The first is that he had no idea what it meant. The second is that he had never wondered what it meant. And the third is that he had never been asked the question.
  • Interesting. I never thought about FOB possibly being an acronym for something. A Google search turned up this:

    Fob - this is actually not an acronym but describes the electronic "key". Fob comes from the use of pocket watches. At one time a man would keep his pocket watch attached to his vest or jacket by a chain. Eventually a decorative element was added to the chain, it was called a fob. This was then adapted to mean anything decorative attached to a chain, like a key fob. Later fobs took on a utilitarian function as electronic door locks would be opened with fobs.
  • OK, ok...so I asked for the battery wisecrack with my signature..... :)

    I knew a fob was the chain for pocket watches....but times change and new meanings sprout up everywhere. Who would have thought years ago that a chip would be an electronic part?

    So, has anyone had any experience with "fobs gone bad" (I can see a short film parody here)

    The whole "bring the title or registration to the dealership and cough up $100" just burns my toast. The thing probably costs 89 cents to make.

    Thanks

  • Da Bunny: I suspect that your dealer might be ripping you off if you are being charged $100 for a new fob. I recently needed a new one because an extra one is needed to install the remote start. The dealer (Koons Chrysler in Vienna, VA) charged my $48.57 plus tax.

    They also required no title or registration, though that does seem to be a reasonable security precaution that in the big picture protects you.
  • My mistake! I was wrong about the $50 fob. It was only a key, not the fob. My apologies!
  • The whole "bring the title or registration to the dealership and cough up $100" just burns my toast. The thing probably costs 89 cents to make.

    Before spending that much on a new fob when all you really need is a new battery you might see if you can gently pry it apart and replace the battery.

    I just bought an '07 Sebring and the fob has a little notch on one side that appears to be there to allow the owner to replace the battery.

    If replacing the battery causes it to lose communication with your car you might see if there's a procedure to program it in your manual without getting the dealer involved. There is one for the '07.

    great info, but where is the data link connector? ..and where is pin 1? there's one connector showing on the left under the fuse box apparently for a cable but there are no numbers on it, and some pins in the connector seem to be missing.. the other connector i found under the steering wheel (had to remove the lower dashboard cover) and it has 16 pins but pin 1 is 12v so i dont think that's the right cable.
    thanks.

    Actually, the battery was the first thing we checked.

    Can you tell I am just getting around to looking into this matter again?

    New battery - dead fob.

    Has anyone used the ones offered at keylessride.com?
