Starting up...

95

Asked by May 11, 2009 at 03:45 PM about the Chrysler Sebring

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Anyone have any ideas on what's going on with my baby? When starting my car it has always been very reliable and starts right up but lately it seems to lag or have a hard time turning over. Has anyone else had this problem? Or do you know how do fix it?

I would guess battery or battery cables

Any other ideas? I've had those checked.

check rust on the cable jacks on the battery itself, crank the engine and if the car doesn't starts DONOT keep doing it, it will burn your ignition starter and the Alternator...have it checked at the dealer, most likely it's the Alternator that is not charged enough to bring everything up and running... hope that helps.

all jacks have been replaced, battery is new and tests good with full charge, cables are newly replaced too

Disconnect the battery and ohm out all lines running to the starter, and all grounding lines. See if you're getting high resistance anywhere. Check from terminal to terminal to make sure you're testing contacts as well as line integrity.

Did you replace your starter?? If the starter starts to go it will have symptoms like that. I work at a For dealership and this happens all the time. People start to replace everything but the starter.
