2001 Chrysler Sebring 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 101K + miles
since I bought my used 2001 sebring sedan couple months ago the dash illumination has not worked at all. At night when I turn the headlights on, the whole dashboard stays pitch dark INCLUDING the heater control knobs and radio buttons. The rheostat is good because when I turn it the digital PRND3L and odometer dims and brightens fine, and I checked ALL fuses and all are good too. Brake and parking lights work fine also. I took out the radio and heater control knob unit and in back of the heater controls unit seems to be a stray plug that I can't find where it plugs in. There are only two sockets in back of the heater control unit but three plugs and behind the radio seems to be a stray purple with yellow stripe wire. It's apparent to me that perhaps the heater controls and/or radio have been replaced allthough with a seemingly factory chrysler radio cassette deck. That's my prob in a nutshell somebody can PLEEEASE help! I'm not sure how to follow the wires or look for a short. Everything is wrapped in black sticky tape and there's like a million wires and I can't get into the dash far enough to see where they all go. Thanx
have the same problem?
