01 sebring convertible- car wont start and radio wont work please help
have a 2001 sebring convertible . It currently will not start . Not even will you hear it trying to turn over. The radio wont work as well. We thought it was the battery so we tried jump starting the car that didn't work. The battery turned out to be fine, so it has to be something else. The night before the car stop working someone tried to break into the car and the alarm went off. Since then, the car hasn't started I am not sure if it could possible be from that or some other issue. Another thing I have tryed is changing the fuses for the radio and the starter fuse. When I turned the key , you could hear the car try to turn over once and then nothing again. I really need help trying to figure out what I can do to fix this. Please help. Thanks
HAve you tried the starter and/or the solanoid? It really sounds like your battery though - sometimes they run down so low they just won't take a charge...
The battery was the first thing that I tryed .We tocharge to ok it to autzone and the guy checked it and it had enough battery to start the car. Everything else has power going to it other than the radio. I havent tried the starter 0r the solanoid . any suggestions on what to do .
Did you ever figure out what was wrong. Mine is doing the exact same thing. I have a 2002 Sebring. Please help
Did you ever figure out what was wrong with it?
take the - cable off wait for a short while and then put it back on it will reset itself
fuse # 8 under the hood is blown, try replacing w a fresh one, its a 20A, after that if you see more nusance blows you can try a 25 A but no larger and see how it does. The problem is design, there are 4 circuits fed downstream on that fuse, if the collected load builds some resistance it will exceed the capacity of the fuse. I rectified this on one by replacing the fuse with a self resetting circuit breaker.
you need to get a thorough check up done on ur sebring. kindly visit a reliable dealer. http://chryslersebring.org/pics/
I have a 2002 Sebring Convertable. I am having the same problem with the fuse to my starter blowing. It seems to happen more when I am using the a/c or heat. Yesterday it blew 7 fuses in a row before it started. I like the breaker idea. Anyone else tried this? Is it expensive?
jackmanmachine...you are spot on! I looked this up because my car was sitting down at a convenience store dead as could be, came home looked up my problem and seen your post. We ran and bought 20A fuses, replaced the 1st one and bingo the car started! If you ever see this, Thank you LOADS!
due to the alarm going off, the system may have shut-down your starter. If you have an alarm reset, do that. sometimes if you put your key in the door and turn it TWICE as if you're unlocking ALL the doors, it will reset itself that way. Best wishes.
