Electrical Problem 2007 Chrysler Sebring

Asked by Aug 15, 2016 at 08:30 PM about the 2007 Chrysler Sebring 4 Dr Touring

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Car battery warning light came on in my 2007
Chrysler Sebring. The car started to slow down like
it was shifting into lower gears or something. I
pulled over and it died, than wouldn't restart. I had
a friend jump me and it started up fine, we left it on
the charger a while and I was able to drive it about
1.5 miles before the car light came back on and
died again. I had the alternator replaced about 2.5
years ago and the battery was replaced about 3
months ago. I tested the battery and it works fine. I
checked the cables connecting to the battery they
are all on securely and have no visible issues. I
checked the alternator wires as well and nothing.
HELP? I'm out of ideas.

Have the alternator tested, even if it is only 2.5 years old. I've had newer ones go bad on me. It sounds like a perfect example of an alternator not charging the battery and as a result the cars dies after a short while.
