Asked by Feb 26, 2014 at 01:42 PM about the 2002 Chrysler Sebring LXi Coupe

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

This piece broke off and now my new battery won't start the car and I keep having problems. Had a battery put in to jump it over the weekend and the car started up and ran for a week. Went to the store a couple of days ago and the car stalled out! So frustrating! It started with a tow truck jump but the next day the battery is still dead! Been round and round with the dealership who said it was the battery!
That battery is less than 6 months old. Please help...... I have cathing the bus at 5:30am.

There should be two heavy white wires that attach to the positive side of the battery one goes to fuse box for power distribution the other is the return from alt. There is also a 60 amp alt fuse in fuse box under hood. Make sure connections are clean and tight or battery won't charge.

Simplest solution replace whole battery connector strip all three wires (starter lead, two white.) Tighten charge problem solved!
