The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. Chrysler and Dodge owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403. A working horn is a safety requirement in many states. Redesigned for 2001, the Sebring has a modern look, but it doesn't feel as fully developed as the models with which it competes. In addition, the low, sporty roofline compromises access and convenience. The vehicle was taken to an independent mechanic, who diagnosed that the front control arm and ball joints deteriorated.

I am actually thinking of letting the bank just take it. This occured on the passenger front side. Right know it is super clean inside, and out. I would not recommend this car to anyone! In the middle of the night and then while driving, the horn will begin to blare like someone laying on it without letting up for 30 seconds or more. Primary Use: Family transportation So Far So Good — Over all I enjoy driving this car. Many rattles under hood when driving.
Note: This recall supersedes recall 14V-7700. Then it begin doing it while driving. The approximate failure mileage 32,000. At first it malfunctioned when I unlocked the car with the keyless remote. Finally just pulled fuse out perm.
Which I would have, but over that weekend out of nowhere, my car stalled out on me without any kind of warning lights or gauges. Thus led to my research online. The recall for Mitsubishi started on June 24, 2015. The contact stated that a loud metal-on-metal scraping sound was continuously heard from outside the vehicle. Their cheapest one was pretty much the price of another mechanics most expensive.
It all of a sudden started sounding muffled, if it sounded at all. The repair shop informed me of a bad wheel bearing that I replaced. So its been over a year and about 20K miles that I have been driving a vehicle with no horn. The horn has to be working properly before your car can pass the safety inspection 2. These inflators may rupture due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling.
The failure occurred numerous times and it continues to occur intermittently. While driving I was hearing noise under car. Upon making a turn, there was a loud noise coming from the front end of the vehicle and the steering wheel. The horn is attached to the airbag in the steering column, so the airbag has to be replaced. Back side also has become extremely loose and grinding, advised it also will separate and break, causing an accident and loss of control of vehicle. I have searched online and have found this problem to be very common with Chrysler vehicles.
Consequence Summary: In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver's frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death. Vehicles that have had their driver side frontal air bag replaced previously need to have their air bag replaced under this recall as well. So I feel this is a very bad safety issue. So I told them just to go ahead and replace it and we would go from there, thinking that would be the end of it. It handles great on the highway. It lacks agility and the ride is unsettled. I really don't have a bad thing to say about this car.
The vehicle was leaking transmission fluid and the doors were rusting. It lacks agility and the ride is unsettled. The noise gets louder with acceleration and coasting down a hill. While the vehicle was parked the horn began to blow on its own and turned off after approximately twenty seconds. The affected vehicles are equipped with a dual-stage driver frontal air bag that may be susceptible to moisture intrusion which, over time, could cause the inflator to rupture. Both of these problems are safety issues and there needs to be a recall and Chrysler needs to be financially responsible as it seems to be a design flaw.
Now its a knocking sound included, as if a piece of my tire component has fallen off. The approximate failure mileage was unavailable. The vehicle was in the process of being repaired for the failure. I believe this is a safety issue because, this morning, I will need to deactivate the horn relay again.
