Question about 2001 Chrysler Sebring
Just started a few months ago, when I go to crank the engine, it will start to turn and then goes dead. Power in the car, but not to radio. AAA guy found the 20amp starter fuse was blown - replaced, and it cranked right up. Since then, it blows out randomly, maybe 5 times in the last 5 months. Haven't taken it in yet, afraid to get racked on the repairs! fuses are cheap! LOL. Any ideas how serious this could be? Also, having fun with the pistons that hold the trunk up, should I take in to Chrysler to repair, or is this something easy I could do myself? Tired of the trunk trying to cut my head off. thanks for any advise! I am having the same problem with my 2001 sebring convertible. I recently replaced the stereo because the factory one died. I thought it was the stereo, because that was new and was on the circuit. Powering down the tunes before shutdown seemde to do the trick until a few days ago when the fuse blew again. My fuse always seems to be dying at power down. I have noticed my fuel pump and ignition are on this fuse as well. So I'm sure I would no instantly if it blew while driving. I am also enjoying the crank position sensor problem as well. I would appreciate any additonal advice available. Thanks Joel
The reason that you are blowing fuses is that your starter is drawing too much current. This usually means that the starter is failing (too much internal resistance). By increasing the size of the fuse yoiu are running more current through the wires than they are designed to handle. This can melt the insulation and maybe start a fire.
