ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

5/24/2017 - SANFORD, FL
ABOUT 2 YEARS AGO MY TPMS SENSOR ON MY DRIVER SIDE STOP WORKING, NOT EVEN A MONTH LATER MY CAR STARTED STALLING. I WOULD BE AT A LIGHT, STOP SIGN, OR PULLING OUT INTO TRAFFIC AND IT WOULD JUST STALL. SO I HAD THE ALTERNATOR REPLACED AT NOT EVEN 70,000 MILES WHICH SOLVED THE STALLING ISSUE. THEN ABOUT A YEAR AND A HALF AGO I NOTICED WHEN I WAS ON THE INTERSTATE DRIVING TO TAMPA FROM ORLANDO AND I PUT THE CRUISE CONTROL ON AND MY CAR STARTED SLOWING DOWN ON I4 AND ALMOST GOT ME HIT BY A SEMI TRUCK BUT HE WAS THANKFULLY ABLE TO SWERVE INTO THE LANE BESIDE ME. I CALLED CHRYSLER AND TOLD THEM THE ISSUE AND THEY SAID WELL THERE IS A RECALL ON THE TPMS BUT YOUR VIN NUMBER DOESN'T MATCH AND TURNED ME AWAY. THEN A FEW WEEKS LATER I STARTED HAVING PROBLEMS WITH MY PASSENGER SIDE DOOR NOT LOCKING AND THE WINDOW GOING UP BEFORE THE DOOR WAS SHUT, AND WOULD HAVE TO MESS WITH IT TO GET THE DOOR TO ACTUALLY SHUT. THEN ABOUT 8 MONTHS AGO MY RPMS WHERE JUMPING ERECTLY AND MY DAD WHO IS A MECHANIC CLEANED ALL THE CARBON OUT IN MY MOTOR AND I WAS STILL HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM. THEN TODAY MY CAR SHIFT WOULD NOT SHIFT OUT OF PARK AND MY DADS FRIEND NOTICED THE CABLE IN THE MOTOR WAS POPPED OUT AND POPPED IT BACK IN. SO I DRIVE TO CLASS AND WHEN I GET ON CAMPUS AND GO TO PARK MY CAR MY VAR GETS STUCK IN REVERSE AND I HAD TO SIT IN THERE FOR OVER AN HOUR WITH MY FOOT ON THE BREAK BEFORE SOMEONE WAS ABLE TO HELP ME. THIS CAR NEEDS A SERIOUS INVESTIGATION AND CHRYSLER REFUSES TO HELP ME WHEN I HAVE LESS THAN 95,000 MILES ON THE CAR AND MY ISSUES MATCH THERE RECALL PERFECTLY. THESE ISSUES COULD LEAD ME OR SOMEONE ELSE TO GET KILLED OR SERIOUSLY HURT, BUT I GUESS THEY WONT DUE ANYTHING UNTIL ENOUGH PEOPLE GET KILLED OR INJURED TO REALIZE THERES A MAJOR PROBLEM WITH THIS VEHICLE.

3/18/2017 - GLENDALE HEIGHTS, IL
HORN AND PASSENGER SIDE LOW BEAM WENT OUT ON MY 4-CYL. 2.4L 2008 CHRYSLER SEBRING SEDAN ABOUT A MONTH AGO. I REPLACED THE BULB, WHICH IS LABOR INTENSIVE ON THIS CAR IN ITSELF AND THE LOW BEAM STILL DID NOT WORK. I TESTED THE NEW BULB AND IT WORKED FINE. I MOVED THE BULB TO THE DRIVERS SIDE HEADLAMP AND IT WORKED FINE. THE HARNESS FOR THE BULB CONNECTOR CARRIES A 12V CURRENT BUT STILL THE LOW BEAM DOES NOT WORK. EVERY ONLINE SEARCH POINTS TO A FAULTY TIPM(TOTALLY INTEGRATED POWER MODULE). I CAN'T AFFORD A NEW ONE AT $595 AND THAT'S IF I REPLACE IT MYSELF. I'M UNABLE TO FIND A COMPATIBLE USED PART AT SALVAGE YARDS IN THE AREA AND CHRYSLER DEALER SAYS THERE IS CURRENTLY A MONTH LONG NATIONAL BACKORDER ON THE PART AND IS UNSURE IF I'LL HAVE A REPLACEMENT IN A MONTH. THIS ALONE SHOULD BE A RED FLAG THAT THERE IS AN UNDERLYING ISSUE AT CHRYSLER. IN THE MEAN TIME I CONTINUE TO SEARCH SALVAGE YARDS AND AM LOOKING FOR A WAY TO BYPASS THE TIPM TO GET THE HEADLAMP WORKING, WHICH IN ITSELF COULD STILL LEAVE ME OPEN TO OTHER FAILURES ON THE TIPM. ALL THIS SAID, I'M WONDERING IF OTHER ELECTRICAL COMPONENTS WILL START TO GO SOON AS WELL. AS IT IS I'M HAVING A PROBLEM WITH THE HORN, WHICH I BELIEVE ALSO RUNS THROUGH THE TIPM.
