 The horn just randomly goes off. to get it to stop i had to pull the fuse which also disconnects the air bag. after reading about the exact same problem by hundreds of sebring owners, i feel that chrysler should replace the horn and air bag (chrysler mechanic told me it was all one unit and to replace it would be over $700). this is a safety issue, not only for me but for others on the road. *tr

 Horn blows for no apparent reason. usually occurs when using the remote to unlock doors but has happened when just opening the car door. continues to sound for several minutes. occassionally will stop if holding horn pad down on steering wheel but then resumes when pressure is released. service department unable to replicate. states it is probably a faulty horn pad which is connected to air bag assembly so all must be replaced. very expensive fix! apparently this is a frequent problem with sebrings for this year. why not a recall?

 The horn randomly begins honking. it occationally happens as i'm driving down the road. when the car is turned off it continues honking. it occationally begins when i push the button on the remote to open the locked doors. it will then suddenly stop honking, only to start again further down the road. the only way i can get it to stop while i'm driving is to push hard on the center of the steering wheel with one hand while i steer with the other hand. this is a major safety hazard. i took it to the local repair shop. the mechanic told me that the problem is a switch in the steering wheel that controls the horn and the air bag. the switch costs around $500 and labor will cost about $500 more. since i can't afford to pay that now, the technician suggested i remove the relay for the horn. he told me that would stop the horn from honking, but also disable the air bag. so now i am driving without a horn and without an airbag. this is also a major safety concern.

 We have 2 2005 chrysler sebring convertibles in the family and both of them have an airbag warning light on. previously our horn would go off sporadically but the dealer repaired it. is there a recall on the problem with the airbag warning lights? *tr

 My horn has started going off for no reason. it will not work when i press on it, but will sound itself at any time during the day or night. the lights on my stereo have been flickering, and the components on the steering wheel (such as the stereo volume and crust control) will turn themselves on and off or up and down. the car has also had problems shifting into gears like it is supposed to. i have only had the car for a year this month, and i have had nothing but problems with it. when i have had it looked at, i am told there is nothing wrong with it. i know it is not normal for the horn to sound off like it does, and for the stereo controls on the steering wheel to turn the volume up or down without anyone pressing on the buttons like they do. i read another persons report about the airbag system that is very similar to my problems, and i feel like the manufacture should be responsible to fix these problems. if i would have known that this car would end up with problems like this, i never would have bought it! *tr

 When driving my 2005 chrysler sebring conv/gt the horn started blowing. i had to repeatedly punch the steering wheel until it stopped. it has happened several times. took it to the dealer, and they told me it wasthe air bag, and it was not covered by extended warranty. they want $750. 00 to fix the problem. i have no horn, except when it wants to work, and no airbag in a gray 2-door convertible - scary. the carwas unsafe to drive.*ak

 Horn will start working on it's on and will not stop until fuse burns out. the only way to fix this is by replacing the driver airbag since the horn pad is inside the airbag assy. needless to say, a vehicle without an horn will not pass inspection and since this is the only way a driver has to communicate with the surrounding drivers in case they get too close or to warn them of a danger a head, this most certainly is a safety issue. by chrysler avoiding their responsibility for this bad design, there are a lot of people out there who are driving sebrings with no horns (since they can not afford $800 for a new airbag, which by the way is going to be no more then a temporary solution since no change in the design have been made). that posses as much as a threat on all of us who share the road with them as it does on those sebrings owners... i have to admit i'm skeptical about nhtsa making sure chrysler make things right, but at least i'll give it a try. to see how big of a problem this is i suggest you google chrysler sebring horn fix. thank you. p.s there was no incident just yet, but i had to choose a dat of the * approximate incident date: or it will not let me go to the next page

 2005 chrysler sebring gtc conv.at 3:00 o'clock in the morning, i awoke to my horn just honking away. the air bag light is on all the time. it happened another time in the middle of the night and then happened when i was stopped at a light. everyone was looking at me as i *dramatically* pounded on the steering wheel. i don't think the pounding is really helping, as it seems to just stop on it's own. the last time it happened was yesterday. as i pulled up to my friends house, and was just about to shut it off, the horn started honking short honks then progressed to looooonnngggg honks. being labor day, needless to say all the neighbors came out to see what all the racket was about. after pounding on it for a few, i decided to drive away as i was sooo humiliated by this time. it stopped about 6 houses down the street. go figure. however, it was the first time i was aware that there was a ticking sound coming from the area where the control panel for the mirrors were, on the left side of the front of dashboard.

 Driving a 2005 chrysler sebring, started to rain and skidded sideways into a curb. the air bags deployed and smoke started to billow from the steering wheel area. the other bag broke the windshield. i turned off the ignition and got out of the car. i suffered minor injuries and was taken to the hospital. upon release from the hospital i went to put on my coat and discovered that it was me that had been on fire. 1/3 of the sleeve had been burned by the exploding air bag. if i had been unconscious or it was summer i could have suffered from smoke inhalation or burned at least my arm. something should be done about the sparks and possible explosion that the air bags set off. *jb
