When I drive the car it jerks when I take off sometimes and then it jerks when I reach 60 or 65 miles per hour. I took it in to Advance Auto and they did a test on it and the test said I needed a new camshaft sensor, so I replaced that part, and it still was jerking, then I took it to MIdas and they did a test and said it was the crankshaft sensor so I replaced that part. Then I said to myself, I am going to Chrysler Dealer to have them put on the computer to test it and they told me it was the Powertrain Control Module which I don't where that is located and the Power Distribution Center (Fusebox) and replaced that and check all the wires going from the fuse box to the battery and they were good. We replaced the positive cable to the battery and it still jerks. We are going to replace the PCM tomorrow. If that isn't it what can the problem be and again we is the Powertrain Control Module be located on a 2005 Chrysler Sebring 2.4l.

It came with a factory alarm system and another one that was installed. Noone at the Dodge dealership told me it had two alarms. When it burned out, it burned out the engine compartment computer codes and the engine service light's been stuck on. Won't go off till I pay twelve hundred for the compartment part to be installed (new one), labor, and extra alarm to be detached/unwired. Also, driver's side window went out on 01/24/15 which has only been a couple weeks since the service engine light went on. What's next? So, I pray it doesn't rain, cause the window is jammed lost deep down in the door and the power won't allow it to go up. My son states the battery also needs to be replaced. Had the brakes replaced shortly after purchasing from dealership, real issues with this vehicle. If you're a mechanic and like challenges, this is the vehicle for you! If you're rich and like to throw money into repairs this is the car for you! Want to buy it? I still owe a lot on it. :o( Also, radio was just replaced cause the volume wouldn't work nor the CD player.
Purchased used a month ago and service engine light went on a week ago. Auto store picked up P440 code for "large evap leak." Thanks so much for the ESIM info.!
I have a lightning bolt within parapheses on my dashboard and my car decelerates and a check engine light flashes.
