Question about Chrysler PT Cruiser
Need to know how to replace starter fuse
There is no fuse on the starter. If you are not even getting a click when you go to start, you have something wrong in the ignition switch, or the solenoid itself. Run a jumper from the positive battery terminal (being careful to not short it to ground), to the small lead on the starter solenoid. If it clicks and tries to start, the problem is in the start switch circuit. This includes the start switch, the neutral safety switch (auto tran), clutch switch (manual trans). If it doesn't turn over, it's probably the solenoid. I hope this helps.

I would be checking the battery with a load tester to check for dead cell . Ensure that the battery posts and terminals are shiny clean and tight.

you will need a new starter rebuilt ect. to replace the one you currently have that is defective. you sound like you are spinning the starter motor but the starter bendix is no longer engaging the flexplate/flywheel on the engine.

You may need to install what they call shims in between the starter and the flywheel in order to align it correctly with the flywheel

remove black plastic relay cover in plastic underhood fuse box and activate relay with a very small screwdriver and ignition on. If starts, obviously the starter is fine, if not the starter is indeed bad and needs replacement so hold onto your ankles cuz it's gonna hurt.

SOURCE: car will not start
Try running a wire from the little terminal of the starter motor to the Positive on the battery , Disconnect the little wire thats on there first.No need to turn the key on as we are bypassing this.This should cause the starter to turn.Make sure that if its a manual that its in Neutral.
If the starter motor turns then the problem is either the relay or the ignition switch.Or if its an automatic Transmission it could be the inhibitor switch .
Hope this helps
