Question about 2004 Chrysler Sebring

Open Question

My 2004 sebring limited intermittent non start issues.

My 2004 sebring limited experienced intermittent non start issues. A few times I was able to start with a jump. I replaced the battery. A few times it started after letting it sit for a few hours, or after playing with the gears. I had it towed to dealership after it refused to start again. Dealership says its my starter. Would they have looked at the fuses?? Should I trust they looked at everything or should I call them and ask about other things?

SOURCE: 2002 Sebring LXi Convertible Starter Motor Fuse Blown 2x

Starter solenoid. I don't have the page here but in chiltons a page shows the ignition to fuse to relay to starter and if you look closely it's quite basic. I had same problem with constant fuse blow #8. The solenoid over time wears and sometimes sticks. When it sticks, your system can overload thus burn fuse. I bet you never stalled out while driving, but only when you shut off and start somewhere it's a no go. That's because you're system is already engaged. I had to change starter as solenoid part of it all. I see others suffer this same problem so please share this around. Solenoid can stick for a millisecond.

Try grounding the engine, they may have moved, removed, or broken the ground straps.

Take a jumper cable from the black(NEG) post to a bolt or clean piece of metal on the the engine.
And see if it starts.

Also check the connection at the starter, in case they had it disconnected during the repair.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Chrysler Crossfire will not start

It turns out that the fuel pump relay is the problem and that this (per chrysler) is a common problem with the crossfire.

Testimonial: "I replaced the starter. This job is quite substantial. Also found the nut connecting the cable to the starter coil was not tight. I think it is fixed."

I have a 2006 chysler sebring 2.4l and ive replaced the head gasket and everything in between water pump thermostat thermostat houseing radator and it still gets hot and also now it starts just fine but it...

Hello Sean Hector,

Typically a half dozen issues COULD be
stopping your START... Get your code read...
sales pitch (they seldom solve the issue)

None of this "STUFF" is magic... and everybody
typically starts at the beginning ... but wouldn't it be
nice to know some important TIPS in advance.

Your ECM
(for example) is AMAZINGLY cheap
(eBay: see here)
2004 Chrysler Sebring 2 4L Engine Computer Control Module ECM ECU PCM PCU...

But RE-PROGRAMMING is required (not cheap)...
On my eBay example it is PRE-PROGRAMMED
(see bottom links: 2004 Sebring)

An important NOTE about AUTOMOTIVE electronics...
.(actually ANY semiconductor circuits you care about):

The tiniest static SPARK (you might not even feel)
is enough to UTTERLY DESTROY any semiconductor
on the planet...

Electro-static DISHARGE:
precautions should always be employed...
(A very simple and cheap [high resistance] wrist band)
Amazon com Rosewill ESD Anti Static Wrist Strap Components RTK 002 Black...

Typically automotive mechanics GET AWAY
with their GROSS NEGLIGENT behavior because
they are usually contacting (grounding themselves)
METALIC body parts, nuts bolts... (etc.) an THEN
touching the various CONTROL MODULES. ECM,
PCM, BCM...TCM (etc.).

ALSO ...
High IMPEDANCE (resistance) test equipment...
or EVEN better... Non CONTACT test equipment
can get your testing done (professional results...
Without EXPLODING those pesky AIR BAGS.
(also quite expensive... never-mind dangerous).
((look on AMAZON for NCVT DC testers))

So as more & more cars are carbon fiber, plastic
(non-metallic et al)... Fewer SEMICONDUCTORS
are going to survive mishandling... I am only
concerned with YOUR CONTROL MODULES.

Hope this gets you SAFELY started

How do I reset a computer on a 2004 chrysler sebring

If you mean clear codes, you can use a scan tool. If you need to reflash the computer to factory specs it would need to be done at a dealer or with an expensive dealer scan tool by some one experienced with the proper data.

Intermittent no start

Do you have a Check Engine Light? What is the fuel pressure now, should be 42-46 at idle and raises as the engine speed is increased to about 50 PSI.

2004 sebring lxi 2.7L V6, engine revs when slowing down at stops, when automatic transmission downshifting. what are some causes of this?

I had a similar issue with my Sebring. I took it to the dealership and they just "rebooted" my computer system. They said the computer was getting confused and having problems downshifting. I would check with them. It only took a few minutes at the dealership to reset it. I was relieved that it wasn't something major!
Hope this helps.

Approx how much to replace the timing bell on 2000 chrysler 300m?

HI there. My water pump just went out on my 2004 300M with 85000 miles. My cost was about $400 to replace the water pump and timing belt.
I recommend replacing the water pump at the same time since you have to take the timing belt off to change the water pump.
$350 is a good price. The dealer will charge you double that.
