Common faults I have found in the four sebrings my father and I run as cabs. 1. Sticky brake calipers. The caliper pins are prone to corrosion and will jam inside the calipers. This makes the caliper work incorrectly and you will only wear one pad out on each caliper affected rather than evenly wearing the pair, also they will be a real bugger to get off. How to fix. Remove the caliper pin, If corroded rub down or replace, and before re-assembly use copper grease on the pin---making sure none goes near the pads or disk! 2. Dash lights failing. How to fix. I have had this in 2 of the four sebrings we run and it can be a very expensive fix if your auto sparky doesn't know sebrings. The problem is caused by a failed inverter that is connected to the dash display unit. once the dash display is taken out, its a simple job to remove the inverter and replace it with a stock one that can be easily bought from most electrical part stores. This vid shows how to do the repair. https://youtu.be/x8cbH26D9p4 3. Airbag lights. 2 of our four have had the dash lights come on and stay stuck on. How to fix. Not fixed them yet, but its probably a dirty slipring/clockspring in the steering column. 4. Tyre Valves breaking. This is a problem every sebring gets nd it is entirely due to them using aluminium to make the tyre valves and it is a costly and annoying problem. how to fix. if you want to keep your TPM (tyre pressure monitors) working you have no option but to buy replacement Chrysler sebring valves, you can alleviate the corrosion with lube, but I found this only partially effective. Alternatively as they fail just replace them with standard valves and accept that you will lose tpm on that wheel. 5. Oil pump failure. A problem common to all vehicles that use the Volkswagen 2.0 CRD engine. it is caused by a design flaw in the oil pump balance shaft where two hexagonal shafts that drive it wear smooth and eventually stop driving the pump. First indication you will get of this failure is your oil light coming on. When this happens, STOP driving straight away and dip the oil levels, if it isn't low, then odds on its your oil pump balance shafts, don't drive it till fixed. if you continue to drive the vehicle, you will eventually go into limp mode, (revs limited) and then your brake pedal will go hard. at this point your turbo will begin to ake a lot of noise--as it runs without lube, leading very quickly to it being damaged. eventually your big ends will fail and the engine will seize up, so you see why it is important to stop as soonb as you see the oil light come on. How to fix. Basically you need to replace the failed oil pump balance shaft unit. As this engine is shared by a lot of vehicles its easy to find a replacement. There are several firms out there offering replacement and upgrade services for this part- just do a search for them on google. it should cost about £200 Fitting is simple enough, though unless your a confident mechanic, id advise taking it to a garage. (if the turbo is noisy after the oil pumps repaired, then you have killed your turbo) Do a search on youtube using the following term "Volkswagen and Audi TDI oil pump balance shaft" 6 Cruise control, It never bloody works!!! 3 out of the 4 we have don't have working cruise control. 7. rear inner wings come undone,, how to fix, Either replace the plastic studs that hold them in, or apply some glue to them. 8. Turbo pipes splitting, 2 of our four have had turbo pipes split, a costly and annoying failure. Usually it is the top one that goes and these can be sourced for about £70, if however the bottom one goes (as did one of mine after a pillock left it unbolted after changing my cambelt) it will cost you about £170. signs that a turbo pipe has a hole will be lots of smoke when you rev, and the car going into limp mode.. in an extreme case you will hear air rushing when you accelerate. I cant think of any more right now, though as I still have three on the road I am certain I will add to this at some point. but while this list is long, its actually not bad considering that my cars all do about 50 000 miles a year. overall I rate the sebring very highly indeed.
