Hi I am Vortash when you turn the key is there a sound from the engine a clicking noise this would be the pre engaged starter motor solenoid trying to engage if you do then the starter motor may be jammed or faulty or possibly has a bad earth check all your body earthing straps .. ( the lights would work as they dont take much drain but the amperage of the starter motor wouldnt ) .
If after checking the earths you dont hear this then I would suspect that the ignition switch is at fault and the starter motor contacts in the switch have burned out or the starter relay hope this is of help regards vortash

My 96 sebring coupe xli wont crank or start how do i check the starter relay

Is the transmission (automatic assumed) in "P"? If manual, are you holding the clutch pedal down?

Do you have functioning headlights? Does the starter TRY to crank the engine but not have enough power to do it? If so, check all your ground connections. Is the battery discharged or fully charged?

Put a voltmeter on the battery and have someone try to start the car. Watch the battery voltage when they turn the key - it should NOT drop below 9V. If it does, it's discharged or internally damaged.

It may be a pure coincidence - all batteries get to a certain point after which they can't be used any more. You may have just lost one cell in the battery. Or... when you changed the water pump, you may have disturbed something you shouldn't have disturbed.

Po725 code on chrysler sebring can it cause the starter to go bad

Hi there:


When Monitored: Continuously after a ignition key is turned from the OFF to RUN

position and/or key is turned from the CRANK to the RUN position.

Set Condition: The code is set when the engine speed sensed by the Transmission Control

Module (TCM) is different than the engine speed reported by the Powertrain Control

Module (PCM) over the Communication Buss.








Hope this helps.

I have a 04 chrysler sebring and the speedometer spiked all the way to the other side after the battery was changed. How do I get it back to normal?

try setting the odometer to read the trip miles. Then turn the ignition key to the off position. Now while holding the trip meter reset button in, turn the ignition key to the run position ( not cranking the engine just until the dash lights come on). The dash should go into a reset mode. You can release the trip reset button while the dash resets itself, should take less than a minute to complete.
