2000 Chrysler sebring Service engine soon light is lit and car cuts off while driving?
I just had this happen to me, it was the crankshaft sensor. If you have the 2.5L the motor will need to be cool to work on it, the sensor is under the exhaust pipe on back side of transmission. Good luck

If the light stays on, it shows that there is a hard fault in the fuel system, emissions control etc etc. Either disconnect the battery for 15 minutes or so or take it to a sh…op to get the code read..that will tell you what part is malfunctioning. There is no other way to shut it off because the light is controlled by the ECM. I have taken it to the shop but the computer says there are no codes stored then the light goes out but a few days later it comes back on I take it to the shop and it is the same responce No Codes Stored and the light goes out
go to autozone and see why its on, they check it free. One word of caution however, they will give you the code, they do not diagnose the problem. They may guess and suggest a… part(as they sell parts)based on the code description, but this is still a shot in the dark. I had a light on and I went to Advance Autoparts and the counter guy printed out a history of codes, all of which came back that my O2 sensor on the tailpipe was faulty. When I changed the sensor, I had to diconnect the battery to reset the warning light. You have to leave it disconnected about 1/2 hour to reset. Before going to Autozone and checking codes, try the "reset" button located in the fuse box (open driver's door and look on the side of the dash). Key in the "on" position, engine not running, hold the reset button until you hear the chime ring a couple of times. Once the light is reset, if it comes back on within several miles of driving I would definitely have it checked out.
Disconnect your your battery for about 10 minutes. This should flush out the error. But you should know what causes the error in the first place. Not sure on your exact mod…el, never played with it... but since it's almost certainly OBD2 - you'll need a reader to plug in and it should have a 'clear error codes' button. HOWEVER - You must find out what is causing the light to trip (the same code reader should tell you) or it will just keep tripping. The scanners are about 130 bucks, but you maybe able to rent on from an auto repair place. Or have them scan it for you!
Where is the switch located on a 1998 Chrysler sebring convertible to reset the service engine soon light?
Answer . There is no reset switch. It is reset with a OBD scan tool after the repair.. UNPLUG THE BATTERY FOR ABOUT 15 TO 20 MINUTES AND IT WILL RESET ITSELF. ALSO YOU CAN… GO TO ADVANCED AUTO AND THEY WILL RESET IT AS WELL AS READ THE CODES ON IT IF OU HAVE ANY AND LET YOU KNOW WHAT CODES THE CAR IS THROWING
When a car die's when driving it could be one of 3 things and its related system. #1 is the engine getting air? is the ir filter clogged. #2 is it getting fuel, and is all rel…ated parts working i.e. fuel pump working? Fuel injectors working? Is the electronics controling it working properly? #3 is the ignition system working and this usually is the one to blame because of the complicated electronics involoved with it. But you can surely test for the simple things of all 3, after that its to the machanic and trying to find the cause. It may be even a frayed wire on your battery connection. The best thing is maybe look at the simple things first that you can inpect visually & test yourself.
Answer . \nthere are two things to do first you can reset the computer by disconnecting the battery for about 1/2 hour then if your light still comes on after that just go… to an autozone and they will check the light out for you for free and let you know what needs to be fixed and what code you have.
Answer . Pull the codes that set it, fix the problem & clear the codes. As it's an OBD2 system a scanner is the easiest way, but some can be done manually by jumping certa…in terminals in the diagnostic connector. Library might have a book or local parts supplier might have the procedure on their computer (Mitchell, Alldata, Shopkey) at no charge.
you may have a problem with the fuel injectors i hade the same problem and it was the injectors so have some on check them Or it could be your fuel pump. The wiring on top ove…rheats and causes it to shut down the car. It was never a problem 'til I was at half a tank or less. CHrysler takes no responsibility and the Feds are not going to do anything until there is an accident. There is also a recall on certain replacement fuel pumps (which I found out about when they put a recalled replacement in for my repair).
Have it checked for codes, That is the same as the check engine light.
You first need to have it checked for codes, you then fix the cause of the code, you can then clear the code with a scan tool.
u can either buy an OBD2 code reader that has that function, or u can disconnect the battery for a few minutes once u hook it back up the light will be off. BUT because your v…an is a 2000 u will need an activation code
Chrysler does not use cut off or reset switches. The fuel system iscomputer controlled with relays.
1999 Oldsmobile alero and it just started cutting off it cuts off while I'm driving my service engine soon light is also on I smell like antifreeze or somthing burning?
Flush your radiator and get that orange antifreeze GUNK outta there! I flushed mine...my mechanic added green antifreeze and all is well....that orange stuff eats and destroy…s....
If the check engine light is blinking that indicates that the catalytic converter will possibly be damaged if you ignore the problem and continue driving the vehicle. i had a… car in the shop here last week with that problem and it turned out to be a cracked vacumn hose. I lifted the hood and could hear the hissing sound from the vacumn leak . The crack was in the 90 degree bent hose connected to the PCV valve. This was a GM vehicle with the 3400 engine.
The check engine light comes on and stays on when a problem is detected by the self diagnosis system of your vehicle. Generally, the problem is in the emissions or something t…hat is affecting the effectiveness of the emissions, but other causes can trigger the light to come on, too. To determine the cause, the vehicle will need to be taken to AutoZone or a shop that has an OBD2 scanner, or for 1995 and earlier models, an OBD1 scanner, While a scanner will not give you the magic answer, it will give you a code that narrows down the problem area.
That light came on because the on board computer system See's a PROBLEM with the emissions system. You will need to have the engine scaned with an engine scanner to see what t…he problem is. Then you will have to repair whatever is wrong and then clear the codes with a scanner and the the light will go off. If you don't repair the system and turn the light off then it will just come back on.
It has to be reset with a code reader that plugs in under dash- youcan also receive the code to see what problem is- it needs to berepaired or light will just come back on and… could be somethingserious so take it to a shop
