On the Sebring, there is a small switch on the trunk where it latches. Right in the middle, there is a small button you can push, which will allow the trunk door to shut. It just needs reset. Right where it goes down to lock at.

The trunk lock latch gets BENT... you need to bang it with a hammer, (or something hard) to line the middle switch back up with the latch. Do not over bend the latch--very light hitting will realign the middle piece back up.

My 2008 Chrysler Sebring Limited convertible has a problem with the trunk latch. It won't stay closed. It keeps unlatching. Do you know what the problem is? How do I fix it?


Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome. You need to check the latch. There is a small lever that you can push to unlock and lock the hatch. Try pushing it over and see if that helps.

My 2008 Chrysler Sebring Limited convertible has a problem with the trunk latch. It won't stay closed. It keeps unlatching. Do you know what the problem is? How do I get it to stop unlatching?


I did this to my car once. Be sure the latch isn't closed as you are trying to close the trunk. With the trunk open pop the trunk once, then see if the trunk latches properly.

08 Sebring Convertible trunk wont latch it acts like the bar the latch is attached to has not returned to the home position?


I had the same problem on my 08 convertible. Every time I opened the trunk I was having to "bend" the upper catch to match the lower latch. I didn't want to take it to the dealer because they would charge me an arm and a leg.
Here is the quick fix:
Remove the latch plate (attched to the body with a spring) this requires a rachet and 1/2" socket or 1/2" wrench. Place 2 to 3 washers behind the latch plate over the bolts, not between the bolts and the plate. You have to be careful or you will drop the washers. Tighten the bolts and whala! the trunk lid closes and locks.
Better fix.
Get a piece of 1/8" or 3/16" metal the same size as the latch plate and drill two holes to match. Place it between the latch plate and the body to act as a shim. Replace the latch plate and bolts as described above. This method will provide better stability.
Hope this helps.

I think I locked my keys in my trunk of my 2004 chrysler sebring convertibile? How can I get the trunk open. The trunk release button on the inside does not work.


Does the back seat fold down? If so you may be able to get into the trunk from the back seat. Check to see if a fuse is blown for the remote trunk latch. The owner's manual should help to see if there is a fuse for it.

Locked trunk


For some stupid reason Chrysler put a switch in the trunk that if tripped prevents it from being opened. You'll need to get into the trunk through the back seat. On the latch there is a small white switch. You need to move it to the unlock position. If you can find emergency release in the trunk that will open it and you can find the switch from the outside.
