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.

Dashboard lights intermittently turn on and off while car is on and driving; especially the'airbag' and 'check engine' and "exclamation point' lights. The 'check engine' light is always on and blinks while in drive. While the check engine is blinking, the car drives slower and does not pick up speed past 20 mph. All spark plugs have been changed as well as the cranks sensor.

For the past several months my dash lights have been flashing, sometimes going off and staying off, and my remote start will start the car but then it immediately shuts off. I did some research on what could be causing this and discovered NHTSA reference # 08V-152, which describes exactly what I've been experiencing, and my car does have the tire pressure monitoring system. When I contacted Chrysler they told me that there have never been any recalls on my particular vehicle. I know this to be untrue because shortly after I purchased the car I received a recall notice for a spring in the gear shift. Chrysler informed me that if I want this corrected it would at my own expense. The problem that initiated the recall can result in the car stalling without warning and causing an accident. My car's VIN does not come up as a vehicle included in this recall, but if the problem is occurring, then why wouldn't Chrysler want to take care of it for safety's sake and their reputation? believe me, I plan on telling anyone I can about this and I will never consider another Chrysler product.

In the past 3 years that I have owned this vehicle each time is rains and/or humid my car would stall. I took it to 2 different mechanic shops (this was done in the span of three years). Unfortunately no one was able to find or to fix the problem. It seems quite dangerous as my car would stall as it is running, while I am driving (talk about unsafe). I noticed that the issue would surface when it is raining and/or very humid outside. My car would start to loose power, a bit of a engine hiccup, and then as I approach a stop or red light, the car would stall completely. Which means I need to put it in park, and restart the engine. Mechanic checked it and said there is "no issues" but any time it rains I have this problem. Also they checked the computer and replaced some other recalled item, and computer does not show any errors. How can one drive a car that unpredictably stalls and no one, even the dealer, is able to locate and fix the problem?

Interior dash lights flicker on and off at night, sometimes remaing off. As such, speedometer isn't illuminated, as well as other guages. I googled this condition and by the responses I saw, this is a widespread problem in the Chrysler Sebring and there should be an immediate recall before someone gets hurt from diverting attention from the road to the dash situation. This happens if the vehicle is stopped, moving, turning, on a city street and in highway conditions. It happens when traveling on smooth pavement or rougher conditions. The vehicle is in like new condition and has never been wrecked.

When it began, the car sometimes would not catch when I turned the ignition. Then one day it was raining and I pulled up to a red light and the car cut off. It eventually progressed to the car randomly slowing down and/or not going over 20 mph. When it first started I could turn the car off and back on and it would be fine, now the car must sit for hours before it begins to work properly again.

My Chrysler Sebring's electronic throttle control light goes on for a second or 2 and then goes back off randomly. The car idles high and seem to want to stall out. The vehicle will go into limp mode when the etc light is solid and won't go more than 10-15mph. There is no check engine light and mechanic found no codes to tell what was wrong. I have been on the freeway or city streets when it will randomly go into limp mode and have to safely maneuver away from traffic as vehicle slows with no response from the gas peddle. I have read online that many other people have had this safety problem and no one seems to be able to fix it or find the source. I observed many others spending hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars on different speculated parts that "may" cause this to happen. The best scenario after people replaced different parts was that the vehicle was fine for maybe a week or two but the problems came right back. I hope with your help we can put an end to this unsafe condition of this vehicle and protect the consumers. Thank you for reading this and taking my experience and many others into consideration.

The electrical in the dash started flickering on and off without warning. Eventually it stopped working all together. I took it to a service dept I work at and they told me I needed to take it back to the dealer because they would have to rip the whole dash apart and replace it. That would cost me around $600. Seems like other people have had the same problem. Has this ever been a recall?

Driving down a normal traffic filled street, car all of a sudden shakes and, wont go passed 20 mph and the electronic throttle control light comes on. Its happened before but if I turn off the car and restart, the car would return to normal. This particular day it didn't. took it to tire plus, they said I need a fuel line cleaning or something like that. Fixed the problem for about a week and today as I was driving from work doing about 45 mph the electronic throttle control light comes on again, 3 times in under five mins. Each time had to restart my car. Its dangerous when youre in traffic and late at night, having to pull over and restart.
