Chrysler Sebring starting problems

Asked by Apr 17, 2015 at 08:08 AM about the 2000 Chrysler Sebring JXi Convertible

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2000 Chrysler Sebring JXI
convertible that recently started
having issues. Yesterday was the
worst, I drove the car home from
work had it off for maybe 5 minutes
and went to leave again and it
wouldn't start, it doesn't turn over,
click, or anything. The battery is fine,
all the lights, radio and everything
will come on but won't start. Left it
sit over night and it started right up
this morning. Any idea what would
cause this? Would hate to get
stranded somewhere with my kids
because I never know when it isn't
going to start up.

First make sure that all of your battery connections are clean. Make sure your ground to the battery is clean also. If everything is good, your starter, ignition, or neutral safety switch could be the issue. If it will not start again, try starting in Neutral. Move the shifter around while trying to start it. If no dice, locate the starter, have someone hold the key to the ON position, as they do that, rap on the starter with a hammer. If the engine suddenly turns over, you have a bad starter. If that doesn't work, you may have a bad ignition switch. You can run a wire from the positive battery terminal and touch it to the positive side of the starter. If the starter turns over, your ignition switch is faulty.

I had a problem with my 2000 Sebring stalling out when Idling, had tune up done. Fixed that problem but still stalling when accelerating. Mechanic went over car really good, checking sensors and valves. When checking the wiring, found that the ground wire for the fuel pump was corroded so the pump was getting power surges. Once he fixed that and replaced the damage fuel pump, car runs great. Fingers are crossed!!! Hope this helps.
