Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2000 Chrysler Sebring Owner Comments

problem #1

Mar 012010

Sebring JXI 2.5L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 67,000 miles


I had similar problem on mine. Would die and start right up again. Got progressively worse. Replace Fuel Filter - no influence. Replaced Crankshaft Sensor (cheap but a pain) - no fix. Removed Fuel pump - found power wires and burnt and discolored (positive more than ground. Chrysler is using too small terminals for the current. I estimate the terminals are arating for 7A. Normally the pump will draw 4 - 5 Amps, but occasionally, under low fuel demand, it will stabilize at 7-8 Amps. Over time this will cause failure of the terminals. Installed a new fuel pump (Autozone). Has been fine for last 500 miles since then.
