You need a new battery, when I had my car off the road for a few months and didnt use my battery it died from not getting charged by the accelorator. That is my answer. Hope is works.

How do i remove the battery of a 2008 Chrysler Sebring to put a new one


First thing get the code to the radio so that you can turn the radio back on . Turn everything off . Disconnect the earth lead off then the positive lead. Remove the battery hold down strap /clamp and lift battery out. Ensure that the replacement battery has the same poles in the same places or the leads may not fit correctly. Place the battery in position and fit the hold down clamp/strap. Fit positive lead after ensuring that the terminal is shiny clean inside. Fit earth lead after cleaning the terminal . Tighten clamps securely. Turn igniting on and wait a few minutes for the CPU to reprogram. Start engine and wait for the ECM to sort out any losses from the battery removal.. If there are lights tha stay on it may be necessary to have a code reader used to reset the CPU

2004 dodge 4x4 rear brake caliper pistons wont move & 1is broken


You have to open the bleeder valve on rear calipers,
as well as turn or screw in the parking brake adjuster,
which is turning the caliper piston in or clockwise,so new
pads will fit on

Do that by hand & save the c-clamp for the front calipers

Change disc front breaks 2001 seville


jack up the car and remove the tire. you will see a caliper that is the thing that looks like it is hugging the disc. there are 2 bolts on the back side of the caliper. one on top one on bottom. loosen them and then they slide back out of the way. the caliper will then slide off. remove the old brake pads. use a 4 inch C clamp with the threaded end inserted to the cup part of the caliper and the stationary part on the opposite side and tighten the clamp down slowly. this will open the caliper back up so it will fit over the new brake pads. after you have the new pads in place slide the caliper over the brakes and disc realign the bolts that hold the caliper in place, tighten, replace tire and repeat on the other side. once complete make sure you pump the brakes a few times be fore you move the car so the caliper can close in on the new brakes otherwise you won't have any brakes for the first few pumps of the pedal

Replace high pressure power steering hose


Very easy job.Replacement part from auto parts store ran me $13.99, and had the o-rings with it. You will need an 18mm open end wrench and I found that the 5/8's actually worked better on the other end. First use a turkey baster to remove the fluid from the reservoir to help with excess leakage. Place a drip pan under the power steering unit. Remove the bottom line fitting first which will help with drainage without extra splashing. Remove top fitting after the unit has drained. Put o-rings on the ends of the new hose after moistening with new power steering fluid.Replace hose with the new one tightening to 35-50 # pressure ( Hand tight should be fine.) Fill unit with NEW power steering fluid and start engine. Turn wheel completely from side to side a few times to allow fluid to replace air in the line.Check for leaks at connection. Turn vehicle off and wait about 15 minute and repeat wheel turning process again with engine running to remove excess air. If you find no leaks then you should be just fine. I completed in about 20 minutes and I am just a shade tree mechanic. Good luck.

How to replace rear brake pads on 2006 dodge sprinter 3500


replacing brake pads is pretty simple but because the results of not doing it correctly is pretty severe (can you say accident) I recomend you get a Haynes manual for your vehicle. Generally they can be purchased for approximately $20 at autozone. The basics for replacing brake pads (as opposed to brake shoes) is to losen the brake caliper so it can be moved up off the brake rotor. Then the old pads pop out. Next the brake caliper piston is pushed back into the caliper and the new pads fit in. Now the caliper is placed back over the brake rotor. Again, get the manual.

How do i replace front drivers side brake caliper?


Jack the van up, remove the tire. Then you will see the caliper. There will be 2 bolts that hold it on to the rotor. Remove the bolts and pry it off with a screw driver or what ever works. Then disconnect the break line from the caliper. After you get the new one use a c-clamp to press the piston down into the caliper and install the brake pads. Bolt the caliper back into place and install the line. Loosen up the bleed valve on the caliper 1/2 turn and have someone pump the breaks until no air bubbles come out. Once you have a smooth stream of brake fluid coming out the valve have that person pump once more and hold the pedal all the way to the floor. Then tighten the valve.
