Chrysler Sebring Climate Control Problems

    Take out the control panel switch and disconnect and connect if that doesn't do it then sounds like you need a new control panel switch

    I have a 2001 Sebring LXI with the 3.0 engine. The compressor will only run in fan position 1. The fan doesn't run while in that position. As soon as you move the blower switch to any higher speed position the fan runs, the ac light goes off, and the compressor shuts off. The compressor doesn't run in defrost either. Anybody have any ideas??? Thanks!!
  • I have a 2004 base model convertible 110,000 miles. My air conditioning blows cold only when it wants to, but the defroster works ok. Some days the AC works no problem, sometimes it won't blow cold at all, but if I switch to the defroster, that blows cold ok. Any suggestions on what the issue may be?
  • I am having the same/similar problem. Heat will be blowing out the vents, then you notice it is blowing cold outdoor air. I used a temp gauge in the vent to verify the A/C was not coming on. It also, doesn't matter how I adjust the Temperature, Blower/Fan, Floor/Dash control dials (they are all working correctly). I have had this problem about 2 years. Was told then by a Ford Mechanic it was a door and the dash would have to be removed to a cost of around $600.

    They replaced the cabin air filter...said that might was dirty....we will see. Kinda getting worried the mechanic at the dealership doesn't know what he is doing & is going to run my bill up......HELP!!
  • Well, I have the classic "fan only works on high" scenario (in my 04 Sebring; 2.7 v6) and am just waiting on a new resistor. At the the same time, whatever controls the direction of the fan seems to be malfunctioning. For example, if I set it to blow on both upper and lower vents, it comes out the defroster. Is this tied to the resistor as well or is there another problem I need to take care of?

    I also have bits of the spongy insulation coming out of my upper vents. Related?
  • The problem is on a 2003 Sebring LXi, 3.0 liter, 2 door coupe. With the air flow in defrost or heat, hot air only goes to the passenger side of the windshield or floor. The drivers side gets cold air. My mechanic is starting to look at it but is stumped so far. He did say when the air is on recirc hot air comes out both sides to the windshield and floor. He's talking about having to take the dash apart. I've read through all the other questions and this seems to be the first for this problem. Any suggestions?
  • @caf50 said: Re: blower motor noise / vibration at speed 3 & 4. Same issue on a 2006 Sebring, remove insulation under passenger side dash. Remove 3 screws that hold up the blower motor & lower motor. Motor had several cherry seeds stuck in the fins, causing big vibration in dash at higher fan speeds. Remove seeds & reassemble; all was fine. The AC is separate issue.

  • I had the same problem. Mine was the vent insulation stuck in the squeal cage part of the fan. I think more fell, the noise is back but not as loud. Its just time consuming and a pain in the back to get to it all.

  • How about this one. I never had good heat. Now I have none. The temp on the dash has always been low. I even had a shop tell me that was too low. It's been to 3 different dealers. Never said a thing to me about it. Now I want heat. I went to the local shop. Was told about $800 to fix it. I know if I tap the am/fm on the radio, It shuts off like lost power. The directional that controls the dash lights flickers when I touch it of try to turn on the interior lights. The rear defogger never worked. Is there an underlying problem I should be searching for? I will be getting a new top soon because of the seal on the rear window has now let go. Please give me some thing to look for or try. Thankx for reading most of my complaints on my 2001 LXi 2.7l
