Question about 2001 Chrysler Sebring
Just asking, isn't the starter fuse a 60-80 Amps one? In that case you might have quite an electrical shortcut. Check for any exposed wire or loose connections around the starter. If it is a less beefy (10-20 amp) fuse it might be the Starter solenoid fuse, in that case maybe it is on it's way out. I still don't understand why the fuel pump fuse will blow though. In any doubt you could also take your car to the dealer.

SOURCE: 2001 Chrysler starting problem
fuses are'nt linked to startor that's a relay as I have mine ran to a car-PC with voice start. ANyhow you would need to look up in owners book fuse location chart. What fuse socket that keeps blowing runs to, my guess is it blows before you start car as soon as your ignition goes to accessory then it kicks on that fuse bank. DO NOT STICK BIGGER FUSE IN AS THIS COULD CAUSE FIRE. first find out what that fuse controls.. is it the fuel system, radio, PCM ect.. could be a ignition fuse but these tend to be bigger what size is the fuse you blow?

Testimonial: "I replaced the starter. This job is quite substantial. Also found the nut connecting the cable to the starter coil was not tight. I think it is fixed."
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.

Your starter is drawing too much current. Recommend you replace the starter. Perhaps you can do it yourself using my tips at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5973094-starter_replace.
