Check all fuses yet.?

your battery charger is not capable of testing any battery, unless it has a load bank built in, i bet yours dont.

so its really not a no start its a no crank.
no car starts, or runs or sustains, unless cranked,
(my in m/t car so can be push started or gravity started)

so why not use jumper cables. this ends 1/2 the guessing here.
it cranks ok, yes? that means the battery was bad, or only discharged
if yes, get battery load bank tested. (all autostores do this for free)
NO crankl
then we next hot wire the starter solenoid.
it cranks fast (engine) the starter is good and the key line is bad.
it dont crank hot wired, the starter is bad engine seized.
now see here all the tricks for fooling the key line.
see em'?

and the hot wire, method in vivid details.
each step , solves this riddle. no matter the cause.

SOURCE: car alarm won't turn off after recharge of battery

When the battery is disconnected and replaced and when the battery is drained and then recharged, the anti-theft device in your car was activated.

Refer to your Manual to arm and disarm the anti-theft device, it should reset

If this does not work using the remote, try locking and unlocking the driver side door with the key and IMMEDIATELY START the car.

SOURCE: Charging problem.. Wont charge battery

The instructions for installing a new alternator usually read to fully charge the battery (12.3 - 12.8 volt range). Otherwise, the alternator will be damaged when it initializes. I have seen some extreme damage result from installing a new alternator with a low-charge battery. The torque required to turn an alternator when damaged in this scenario is unbelieveable!

Car won't start and arms alarm when I turn the ignition

Dead battery armed the security system. Remove the battery cable let the system reset. Charge the battery. Use the key to unlock the door instead of the keyless entry. This resets the alarm once the battery is charged.

My 2004 Honda Pilot ran fine then a hour later won't start. At first thought battery so we charged up usig one of those chargers you plug in. Lights flicker, and clicking sounds but won't turn

Check batry terminals are secure & free from corosion, check security of earth strap to engine & main power wire on starter, if ok have the batry load tested to ensure it can perform under load as the starter needs a lot of current. Have you tried a jump start?

Any of the larger parts stores will test your battery and charging system free. To properly test, the battery needs to be fully charged with a battery charger first. Form what you said, it sounds like the battery is failing but testing will tell you far more than I can from 'way over here!!!

Chrysler sebring wont start at all

Does it have a distributor??? If it does,take it off and spary the inside of the cap with WD-40. It sounds like you have moisture built up in the cap from just sitting there. You might also need to put a battry charger on the battery to bring it back up to fully charged. Cold weather sometimes play a tole on cars sitting around, especially Batterys.
