Sebring Convertible

No Comment

A: NO, it will probably not work.

The Sebring convertible and Sebring hardtop are 2 completely different vehicles. The hardtop is Mitsubishi, and has a Mitsubishi amplifier in it. The Convertible is Chrysler, and has a Chrysler amplifier in it.

The plugs will likely be different preventing him from being able to plug it in.

The hardtop Sebring and Dodge Stratus (2-door Stratus only) used the same amplifier from 2001 to 2005, it was part number MR472783, and may have been used in some Mitsubishi vehicles as well.

Q: What Would Cause Water In A Chrysler Sebring Convertible?
I have a Chrysler Sebring Convertible and every time there is a a heavy rain, about a gallon of water accumulates on the drivers side floorboard. The top is in excellent condition and this is the only place that water leaks into.

Any ideas as to what’s up?

A: Check the drain outlets in the floor. if they are clogged, water will build-up in the car instead of draining out. There should be a on the right and left, just in front of the rear wheels. Good luck.

Q: Is it possible to swap for a bigger engine in my chrysler sebring convertible?
I have a 2001 Chrysler Sebring convertible i was wondering if it is possible to put in a bigger engine in the Sebring weather it be a bigger v6 or even a v8 engine this is a question that i have been trying tofind an answer to but just can’t seem to find.

A: Anything is possible if you have the money or know how. Short answer is no unless you own a race shop wherer you can make a race car. V8 will never fit. it is a FWD car. You won’t get any V8 to work with it. V6 would have to be a newer one to be more powerful and the transmission would have to match it. If you are able to build a car from scratch then you probably could. Otherwise, no chance.

Q: I am probably going to purchase a 1996 Chrysler Sebring Convertible. What should I look for when inspecting?
I am inexperienced when it comes to purchasing a car. I found a good deal on a Sebring convertible- I am wondering what I should look at/for when checking out the car. It has slightly upwards of 100,000 miles, by the way.


A: you would want to make sure it doesn’t use oil and that there isn’t any problems engine wise then check out all the seals. like the seal around the windshield and the door windows thats very important . and if it doesn’t need any of those and has good tires, springs and shocks you’ll have a good deal in that car when you buy it

Q: 1996 Chrysler Sebring Convertible- What’s the problem with the car?
Hi, I will try to give as many details as possible about my 1996 Chrysler Sebring JXI convertible.

It has about 100,000 miles on it. One day, the “service engine soon” area near the speedometer lit up. I planned to service the engine, but the next day, the car would not start (battery completely shot- no noise when I turned the key in the ignition).

I jumped it and it was back to normal- I ran it long enough, I thought, to make sure it kept the charge. I also got the battery checked out at a mechanic, and the mechanic said it was fine. The car was running ok for a few days and the oil icon was lit up (I planned to change the oil as a result). Now, it won’t start again and I am planning to jump it when I get back home from work. But I am wondering… what exactly is the problem with the car? Is it the battery? Is it something else?


A: It’s really hard to get the battery out of your Sebring to test it.Maybe you already know that the left front wheel is in the way of an access panel that is screwed in to the fender liner.Then the battery is bolted in a tight spot making it a serious effort to remove.The battery needs to come out of there for testing,but by the sound of’s probably 95% worn out anyway from being discharged too much.The alternator should be verified too.

Q: What type of clear vinyl sheets should I use to replace a rear window of a Sebring convertible top?
I’m thinking of just using a clear vinyl sheet and velcro strips to replace a rear window on my Sebring convertible.I just don’t know what KIND of clear vinyl sheets I should use.Any suggestions anyone? Thanks.

A: You’re going to have nothing but trouble if you try a do it yourself repair, like constant leaks, or the plastic popping out on the highway. Not sure of wear you live, but I would get a price from either an automotive glass shop, or convertible top business as this is a specialized area of repair. Good luck

Q: Do you know how to turn off the Airbag light in my Chryler Sebring Convertible?
I have a 2003 chrysler sebring convertible and the airbag light comes on and makes a alert sound as well and i just had work done on my car to the a/c. Do you know how to turn it off? Thank you.

A: you can’t turn it off. it has to be fixed and the light will go out. you will have to go to the dealer. most likely it had nothing to do with your a/c work unless they were working inside the car on the evaporator or other under dash repair. keep in mind that when the light is on the airbags will not deploy in an accident, and if the light is on because a wire is shorted the bags could deploy on their own wit hour a reason. get it fixed asap.

Q: Chrysler 99 Sebring Convertible has water on floor?
I have a 99 Sebring Convertible. After rain last weekend, my car filled with water. Here’s the catch the seats are dry its all on the floor. I can hear water inside the car but cannot figure out where it is coming from. Any suggestions?

A: First place I would check would be under your dash. If there is a leak from your windshield and leaking under your dash, it won’t be long before it causes a short and possible fire.

If you find no moisture, pull your back seat out to see if any of the carpet under the seat is wet. You want to rule out the rear window.

Next, check around the bottom of the doors for wetness. Usually these parts are raised somewhat higher than the floor. If it was coming in by leaking down into the door and then into the car, the top of the carpet at that spot will be wet. If the car wasn’t flooded, the other high spots near the doors and windows will be dry.

I don’t know how they build them now, but used to be there were drain holes in the bottom of the door for water to drain out. If they ever plugged up and retained the water – MAJOR RUST, and wet carpets.

Q: Would you buy a Chrysler Sebring Convertible?
I have a 2001 Honda Accord in great shape with 81,000 miles on it. Nothing wrong with it. I just want (not need) a new convertible. Anyone with anything to say on a Sebring, good or bad would be most helpfu! Thanks!

A: You should also consider that such a car may be expensive to insure. Check your insurance rates before buying one, for example here –
