Question about Chrysler Sebring
Recently, my radio/interior lights/remote keyless entry would just stop working. Everytime, I have changed the fuse to fix the problem. It would normally temporarily fix the problem until about a couple weeks later when it would happen. Yesterday I tried changing the fuse again after it had blown, and right as I would put a fuse in, the fuse would spark & was blown right away. What could this mean, and how much do you think it will cost to get it fixed?
There is a short curcuit in the circuit that fuse protects. Is the radio original equipment or is it an aftermarket radio that has been replaced before? If it has been "worked on" by anyone lately or is not OEM, I would concentrate some there 1st to find the wire being "grounded or shorted". Also, check the door switches to see if they are loose or causing a wire to short against the door jamb. If you can't find the cause of the short, take it to an ASE certified electrical specialist, they will know how to diagnose and repair it. Electrical problems are extremely difficult to diagnose without seeing the car and therefore the price to fix the problem would be difficult to predict as well. But a specialist would likely find the problem in the least amount of time, and though their rates may be higher/hour, the outcome may still be quite a bit lower because they will find the problem faster due to their higher competence. Best wishes!

You have a short circuit somewhere..possibly in radio itself. if fuse feeds all 3,unplug radio and see if fuse still blows..electrical problems can be time consuming
