Could be several things.
1. Ba battery - replace (it's located under the left fender - you have to remove the left wheel and the plastic fender insert.
2. Could be a wornout starter solenoid. Replace the starter. The starter is difficult to remove. You have to remove the front catalytic converter - two nuts on the the front exhast pipe flange, 1 bolt from under the car (connects converter to exhast manifold) and 3 nuts from the top. Converter can be difficult to get out; you'll have to push the collant hose up and out of the way. You should test the starter before removing it (you'll have to remove the converter to get to it). Connect a jumper from the battery to the solenoid. If starter turns engine freely, it's not the starter.
3. Could be a short causing the battery to go dead. This can be very difficulot to find. If there are other problems with an electrical devices (radio, ABS, CD player, etc) it's likely that something is shorting.

Your negative and positive battery terminals are corroded. Take them of and wire brush them. Then the battery has connection with the starter. If that doesnt work test the battery and then the alternator, But im guessing a dirty conection.

    yes that is what I would try first and then check all other connections. That is the cheapest thing to do. Then you can charge the battery again and if it's bad then replace it

It sounds like battery or dirty battery cables.

I have a 2001 chrysler sebring lx wont turn over


Hope you got a good deal on that oil change. do you believe in coincidence. I can't imagine how an oil change could do anything to stop the engine from starting. So you have to rule out things like starter and fuel pump. to check the fuel pump go to a parts store and buy a can of starter fluid. Remove the top pf the air cleaner box. Have someone spray starter fluid into the opening going to the engine while you are trying to start the motor. If it fires up the pump is bad if not go on to the starter. For the starter locate the relay under the hood (in a fuse box) labeled for the starter. Remove it. Then run a wire from the positive terminal of the battery (careful not to ground to car) and touch where the relay plugged in. One of the points should kick the starter over. If none of them do i would suspect the starter. if all is ok the next possible suspect is the computer. You will need a dealer for this one but some computers have extended warranties because of problems so ask the dealer about it. I just had one replaced for a customer last summer on a 2001 Chrysler T&C and it was covered under warranty. Whole visit was around $200 If this helps please reply and good luck

Radio doesn't work after dead battery


What you need to do if you cant find the code in your owners manuel is unfortunately contact a Chrysler dealer who will be able to look it up for you. If you can find it somewhere in your glove box or owners manuel use the radio presets to punch in the code and the radio should work just fine

Problem with the level of heat/ac blower only works on level 4, instead of 1,2,3.


You'll need to replace your blower motor resistor. Usually located on firewall on passenger side, or up under dash inside by blower motor. Grab a new one at parts store & then you'll know what your looking for.
