Battery dies when I sit with air conditioning on

Asked by Jun 20, 2016 at 12:27 PM about the 2006 Chrysler Sebring Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2006 Chrysler Sebring 2.4 base model. I
have had this same problem last year. It got to the
point where if I got stuck at a light I would have to
turn my ac off while stopped at a light or just
parked in general.  It kept dying on me so I
changed the alternator and it fixed it.  Now it's a
year later and I've got the same problem.  Do you
think it's something else other than an alternator?
Because I feel like I shouldn't have to replace it
yearly. I've never had this problem in any other
vehicle

The computer controls the alternator on this vehicle so you may want to have the system checked for codes, if none are found then you may have to have the system live data scanned.
