2004 Chrysler Sebring

I purchased my car new in Feb 2005 however the date of manufacture on it is July 2003 telling me that it was probably one of the first vehicles off the assembly line for the 2004 model year. The mileage is currently just over 34,000 and the engine size is 2.7liter. These problems started at under 10,000 miles.

My problem is that the vehicle has dual catalytic converters and has been at several different dealerships after the check engine light comes on to see what the problem is - the code that I'm always told is that there seems to be an issue with the catalyic converters - the dealerships were all surprised to find out the vehicle has dual converters. So far both converters have been replaced several times, the O2 sensors have been replaced and Chrysler has opened what they call Stars Cases on my vehicle. The last time the engine light came on the dealership had the car for more than 3 weeks before they were told by Chrysler to replace the PCM - in going through my repair paperwork I see the PCM mentioned all the way back to Sept 2005. When I picked the car up this last time I noticed that I didn't have use of the speedometer or the odometer, turned around and went back to the dealer and was told they hadn't programmed the new PCM.

My question to all of you experts is how can I tell if either Chrysler told the dealership to or the dealership programmed the unit to NOT have the check engine light come on?

Thank you,
Do you
have the same problem?

Honestly there may be a way to do it but I sure dont know how, the eng light that is, new pcm's have to be updated with the latest software available from the manufacturer, probably and honest mistake on the dealerships part, I dont think any manufacturer would do something like that, that is a lawsuit waiting to happen, but anyways I wouldnt sweat the light thing they may have finally found the issue, hope I helped ease your mind and answer your questions
Was this
