Question about 2002 Chrysler Sebring

Open Question

02 Sebring ignition fuse keeps blowing.

I see where I need to check the starter and wiring but would that also cause the car to shut off when the fuse blows while driving? I was driving when the car just shut off. I pulled over and replaced the fuse and it started right back up.

    2002 ignition fuse has blow twice. For now I just carry extra 20 amp fuses with me. I did check under the dash by the clutch pedal and I noticed a two prong white connector with the red wire out of the connector. If the red wire is hot, then this could be shorting out - I taped it with electrical tape and hope this fixes the problem. If not, at least I showed my wife how to change the fues if it happens again.

SOURCE: 20 amp ignition fuse keeps blowing

I'm curious, does this vehicle have an alarm/remote starter? If so I expect the installer didn't wire it correctly ... it was an all too frequent issue, with inexperienced installers we had .... I would first suspect any add-on device first (if any) ... In answer to your question ... I know it does have a relay (Starter solenoid is a relay and built onto the starter) As far as it being a relay or the IGN switch ... I'm skeptical.

SOURCE: starter enabler fuse blows which means the starter motor does not work until fuse is changed

It is possible that the starer is pulling too much amperage- 1st thing you need to do is find out what if any other consumers are on that circuit, 2nd you need to find out how much amperage is being consumed by the starter. 3rd test you wires most likely if a wire problem it is the heavy hot wire on the starter or the back of the alternator has a loose retaining nut

SOURCE: blown ecu fuse

ECU= Electronic Control unit. This is what controls all the engine electronics. All the sensors on the engine and other things are routed through the part. What it does is tells the engine how to run. Each sensor plays a specific role. The ECU reads how much are the engine is getting, tells the engine how much gas it needs, etc. Try digging around a salvage and finding a new ECU. Swap it out, and if it is still blowing the ECU fuse then you need to start looking for shorts.

SOURCE: why do i keep blowing starter fuse

The starter fuse also controls the fuel pump. Generally a bad fuel pump is at the heart of the problem. Have it checked out. Regards,Joe

2002 sebring keeps blowing 20amp starter and fuel fuse

When does the fuse blow? As soon as it's replaced or when you try to start the car? Take the small wire off the starter solenoid. This will separate the fuel pump from the starter solenoid. With a new fuse in turn the ignition switch to the start position. Does the fuse blow? If so, then the fuel pump and/or the wiring to it has a short. If the fuse doesn't blow then the starter solenoid or the wiring between the ignition switch and the solenoid has a short.

After driving my 2000 chrysler sebring coupe for about 40 min, the ignation fuse blows and keeps blowing every time i turn key to starting position. can this have anything to do with my distributor and/or...

i would expect the problem to lie in the ignition switch/starter motor circuit , the 40 min drive is irrelevent as there must be a short or overheated wire somewhere, check the wire's to and from starter for tightness,corrosion ,wear ,melting etc , also check the battery wire's for the same and the ignition switch

02 Escalade will not start

It will most likely be a poor earth issue, make sure the earth lead between the battery and the body is good and clean and check the one between the body and motor.
Poor earth connections cause excessive current draw and will blow fuses.

01 chrysler sebring was running good but now keeps blowing 20 amp fuse to starter and fuel system

something in the ignition circuit is drawing too much current.the starter draws 10 times that much current.check for shorted wires or a bad coil pack,or even the module,or a short in the distributor.get the wiring diagram.put a 25 watt bulb in the fuse instead,it will light and limit the current to 2 amps.disconnect items until the light goes out,and then check things on that power rail.

2001 Chrysler starting problem

Sounds like you might have a bad starter. I would take that one out and have it checked first of all.

I would have to look at a wiring diagram and see how that circuit is run but the fuse shouldn't do anything else but the starter and maybe the ign switch....

Can you get a wiring dia of the car? trace out that circuit and see if there is anything else that could be shorting out
