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.

2003 Chrysler Sebring Owner Comments

problem #1

Jan 122016

Sebring LX 2.4L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles

A D V E R T I S E M E N T S

OVERVIEW OF MY VEHICLE:

- Daily Driver - 60k and passed down in the family. I being its second owner. - Accident free, clean title - No electrical damage (ex. Poor repairs. modifications, etc.) - No wear or tear to the horn. (ex. overuse of the horn) - Routine quality maintenance.

DESCRIPTION: - Was told by someone that my '03 Sebring was blaring the horn for a few seconds in the early AM hours without anyone engaging it. (Not the car alarm, alarm is intermittent honking, not continuous blaring as described.)

- Mild winter, horn malfunction began on a 43°F morning exactly when the engine was started (After reading complaints of this same problem from models '02-'06 this is a common occurrence on "colder" days.)

- Started the car and horn suddenly began to blare nonstop, tried everything to stop it (Shutting off the engine and electrical, hitting any buttons related to the horn) but nothing worked.

- Horn continued to blare for 2 minutes then stopped on its own.

- Horn relay was removed to stop this problem from reoccurring.

- Horn relay was examined and found to be completely functional.

- Researched all over the web for weeks, discovered this is a very common problem for Sebrings especially amongst the '05 and '06 models.

- Possible solutions: Clockspring or horn relay has gone bad, however, I read one instance where the clockspring was replaced but the horn problem returned.

I HOPE TO SEE AN INVESTIGATION/RECALL FOR THE HORN ASSEMBLY (Or any sort of component that would contribute to this malfunction) ON '02-'06 CHRYSLER SEBRING MODELS. THIS IS A GENUINE SAFETY HAZARD AND CAN RESULT IN A CRASH.
