Question about 2004 Chrysler Sebring
Most vehicles have problems starting when it is cold. Short of installing a block heater, your problem lies in your battery. if it is cold in your area for a few months of the year, my suggestion is to invest in a higher rated CCA battery, and a block heater.
Cold Cranking Amps is a rating used in the battery industry to define a battery's ability to start an engine in cold temperatures. The rating is the number of amps a new, fully charged battery can deliver at 0° Farenheit for 30 seconds, while maintaining a voltage of at least 7.2 volts, for a 12 volt battery. The higher the CCA rating, the greater the starting power of the battery.
This morning it was -19F here, and my new car gave me a fit starting, so you are not alone. Replace the battery, and pay a little higher premium for CCAs and you should be fine.
