Question about 2006 Chrysler Sebring Touring
I thought the battery had died, but the guy from AAA said the battery was fine. He suspected the starter; however, most of the instrument cluster would not light up when the key was put turned to the ignition position (only the odometer and brake/oil dummy lights). Radio will not turn on either but the power windows and locks still work. Suspecting a fuse but not sure which one it could be. Still might not rule out starter. There were no issues when I drove the car last night and it has been parked since I came home from work yesterday. I don't suspect pack rats or other critters, but can't rule them out either.

Check your relays,fuses,and especially your ground cable on the battery side and the block,try jumping a ground from the battery to the frame or body and see if it makes a difference

1999 CONCORDE: check the battery terminals probably they are not tight enough...something like that happened to me just the lights turned on and the car seemed to be dead, the battery is still ok since then. I just needed to buy new terminals.

Have read the manual is wrong and to use panel on side of fuse box for fuse locations...

It may not be a bulb, as the instrument cluster usually has a number of bulbs and they probably didn't all blow at once. Pulling instrument clusters can be touchy and may not be for the average "shadetree mechanic" however, typically there are a few screws above the cluster going into the dash pad and a few hidden behind the trim panels below the cluster.

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.

I had the same problem, could not figure it out. Looked all over the inter net found a post that said something about the ground wire that had a bad connection. So i followed the found wire and this is what i found. attached photos, plus whati did to fix it.
