Chrysler sebring conv won't start, headlights flicker

The first thing you do is have the battery and the battery cables checked, it sounds like a dead battery to me. The battery is accessed through the drivers side front wheel well through an access panel. Remove the front left wheel first.

Ford focus won't turn over ,was fine this morning parked up now won't start getting whinning sound from side of engine

If the temperature is low, then the engine might have struck up. You need to give heat and then try starting. If you still face the problem, then open the front and check if any wires have been cut off or else call or an mechanic to solve the problem,

My 2001 Dodge Durango won't start at times. I replaced battery and had alternator checked. Both checked out fine?? Help! ??

When it won't start, will the engine turn over and try to start, or does it act like a dead battery?

I have a 2000 323i. The battery appears to be strong enough, but it won't turn over. Can you tell me if there is a fuse that maybe affecting this problem?

Have you attempted to jump start your car with either another vehicle or with a strong battery charger? If so, what were the results?

Do you hear clicking when you try to start it? If not, then clean your battery cables and then reattach and try again. If there is clicking, then you need to determine if the problem is in your starting circuit or the engine itself. So you will need to take off the serpentine belt and using a large socket wrench you need to try to turn the engine (clockwise only). If it will rotate, the problem is in your starting or charging circuits. If it won't rotate by hand then the problem is in your engine.

For about 2 weeks my car has been hard to start now it wont start it acts like the starter is not engaging to turn motor over when you try to start it it makes a whinning spinning noise we took starter off...

sounds like the battery wire to the starter is possibly the culprit, it may have a bad spot in it not allowing enough voltage to the starter. also depending on the brand solenoid you purchased it is possible to get a bad one. i recommend borg warner electrical products. i hope this helps.
