Most likely: The "Bendix" or over-running clutch is bad. This part is found at the Inside end of the starter, inside the taransmission bell-housing where you cannot seeit. If you were to take the starter out of the cark youo would see it. Or, you can look at anoother starter off most any car anddn ssee eone.

If it has worked recently and quit, you may have burned out windings and need a new starter. One way to check is have someone turn the key while you tap on the starter with a wrench or hammer. Strike the case of the starter pretty good. If the starter takes off, this is the problem. It may work a day or two after it gets going again but it WILL go completely out soon.

Should be located close to the oil filter. It will screw in like a spark plug. It has a harness plug. Easy to change, save yourself $70 in labor. You will need a fairly large wrench to remove

Well your not crazy but you are talking about 2 different things. The starter will spin but there is a thing called a ben-dex that is driven out of the starter motor by centrifugal force it then engages the starter ring on the flywheel, it is probably this that is stuck or seized up and not engaging the fly wheel. Answer is to remove the starter and see if this is the problem.

sounds like your bendix on the starter spring load mechinism gear you will need to test it by removing your starter and hooking up a battery to it. You will see and hear the gear come out and turn...if it doesnt function properly then you will have to replace your starter.also may want to check the solinoid..

I have a 1997 sebring lxi. It now will not turn over. I sprayed starter fluid in the intake and it turns over. I changed the fuel pump, fuel filter, and the relay. What else could it be?


Do you hear the fuel pump coming on normally comes on for approx 10 sec. when you turn key on, if no pump noise fault is still in fuel system, check the fuse and wiring, check for trouble codes, check injectors, etc

Put a new starter and new battery on a Chrysler Sebring 97 And it still don't want to turn on. The starter spins but it doesn't egnight.


Switching the batteries on a bluetooth depends on the device. For example, in a bluetooth wireless mouse, you typically turn the mouse over and slide open the battery compartment to insert new batteries.------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chrysler 2004 starter doesn,t turn ,battery has 12.7 volts lights and horn works good but starter doesn't even click


My 2004 Sebring did just that. it was a fusible link. a tiny square box in there with the fuses. they are a cube that plugs in about 3/8" of an inch square. Find the bad one replace it and the starter starts working again.
