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.

Sebring 2.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 8,749 miles


Thank God I leased this car! Less than 1 year after I brought it home my air bag light came on (Spring time). The driver side air bag sensor needed replacing (8749 miles). At 10058 miles the air bag sensor came on again, same problem, wrong part ordered and I went in 2 times to have it done. 11504 miles, air bag light again, driver side seat belt retractor. 20811 miles, yes, again air bag light on, this time the connector just needed to be reconnected (driver side). 21391 miles, air bag light on when passenger sitting in seat, replaced seatbelt tensioner. 22642 miles, air bag light once again, left front seat belt assemble replaced. These are not the only problems, see my post under engine problems. All I can say is that, although this is a lease and covered for another 4500 miles by the warranty, unfortunately the lease is for an additional year. The service manager is currently working with Chrysler to extend the full warraty for the remainder of the lease. If that does not happen then I will be taking legal action. I pity the fool who ends up buying this car.

Sebring Limited 2.7L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 45,000 miles

I am writing this Solution to assist anyone that may encounter a problem with the Airbag light going on/off intermittently inside the dash instrument display. I have a 2004 Chrysler Sebring Limited with a 2.7L engine, 45,000 miles.

To correct this airbag on/off light problem. It is very simple. First, made sure the key is removed from the ignition, look under the front passenger seat, there is an electronic control module; you will need to disconnect the following electrical connectors one at a time: two black connectors, and one green connector, you will not need to disconnect the yellow connector. After these connectors are disconnected, wait 2 minutes and reconnect them back on. You may now start your engine and drive it around the block. The Airbag light problem should be corrected. If you still have problem, you may want to consult with a service department. Let me know if it is helpful to any Sebring owner out there. I love my Sebring convertible Limited, itís a great car!

Note: be careful when you disconnect the connectors. The connectors has plastic lock clip and you will need your finger nail to lift up a little and unplug the connectors. You will saved a lot of money by doing it yourself. The dealer may sell you a new ecu plus labor for about $900.00. or more. Enjoy your savings.

  • 30,000 miles

Fixed under warranty 10/05 (no cost) - described as faulty airbag sensor. Winter time. This problem seems to really flare during warm weather. Get free oil changes with this "Southern Hospitality" VA dealer (BEWARE!!!) so I mentioned the problem again as they are supposed to guaranty their repairs and it has been happening off and on and I live 40 miles from dealer. Well, the crooks claim it is a different sensor (passenger side) so therefore repair will be $250. The light and occ. beep is just inconvenient so to not have it fixed will be $250 diagnostic charge. I am screwed and will be paying $250, lesson learned, and will NEVER ever do business with that dealer EVER again. In other words, I am now paying for every oil change that I have gotten. Were they really free? Do they tamper with your car so these things happen? I see no report of others having airbag sensor issues. Moral: There is no such thing as a free lunch.
