    sound like you jump the car with wrong polarity.

    usually the cable will not smoke with a jump.

    if you did a reverse. there are more electric problem than you have listed.

Sounds like you fried something when you jumped it. Make sure all the cables and wires are good and not burnt. Check fuses, and replace as necessary.

2000 Chrysler Sebring w/year old battery.  Advise, what could have occurred when AAA jump me???  Left tiny interior light on under my mirror--battery dead.  After AAA came, I let it run


I doubt the service person did anything wrong. In today's cars with both engine and body computers, jump starting a car can be risky.
You're better off having the battery charged for an hour or so then trying to start it.
You may have to have the body computer scanned and possibly flashed to get everything working again. The body computer controls everything you mentioned. It could have lost some of the factory programming when the system was dead.

I have a 2004 Chrysler Sebring Coupe Limited. I drove mi car around in town. When we shut it off and come out the store it won't start. We had to get a jump twice. Towards the evening we shut our car...


Replace the battery first! That acid will corrode everything it touches. Once the battery is replaced, you can test if the alternator is working properly.

Can't find negative connection on remote terminal battery


Just attach the negative cable to any metal ground. This will protect the battery in the Olds and still enable you to jump start your car. Best of luck.

Wont start


Check the condition of your battery. You may have a battery going bad. The 300, Sebring, Intrepid, and most of the intermediate sized Chrysler cars do wierd stuff like the dash lights going crazy. Try jump starting it.
