2007 Chrysler Sebring - Multiple Issues
I have a 2007 Chrysler Sebring 2.4L that ran into multiple issues yesterday. My check engine light has been on for almost 2 years now, but I've had no mechanical issues with the car itself... Earlier this week, my battery light appeared on my dash and it came to a point where it just wouldn't start. So I replaced my battery and the car started right up. I noticed that it was still hesitating to start the day after and the battery light still appeared.
As I was driving to work yesterday(battery light still on), my radio began turning itself off and on. Then, a couple of minutes later, the car stayed in 3rd gear and wouldn't go up or down. I did make it to work but when I tried to turn the car back on after shutting it off, it wouldn't happen. I waited a couple hours, went back outside, and it started again. My boss came out while it was running and unhooked negative on the battery and the car still ran, leading me to believe it's not the alternator faulting, but I could be wrong.
I attempted to take the car back home, but ran into the same issue. It took about a minute for the battery light to come on. Then 2 or 3 minutes later I was stuck in 3rd gear again. About 3 minutes after that my ebrake light would pop up quickly every 5 seconds and would beep. Then I received a yellow lightning bolt light on my dash and that's when the car would start to shutter and die.
Sorry for the long explanation, but I'm just trying to give all the info I have in hopes to find a resolution without spending a ton. Any help is appreciated.
