Question about 2002 Chrysler Sebring
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.
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.

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.

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

Mine is doing the same thing. We are getting ready to replace the starter. Hopefully that is the problem. I'll let you know how it turns out.
