Question about 2002 Chrysler Sebring
Last night i left work and drove home, when I got home my fiancee told me I had to go pick something up at the store. I went to go start my car, a 2002 Chrysler Sebring convertible with 108,000 miles on it and it was completely silent. The interior lights and headlights worked fine, and the only light that went on in the dashboard was my oil light. I just had an oil change 2 weeks ago, and check my oil religously, my oil level was full on the dipstick, so the original thought of enigine seizure went away. I tried to jump the car and still when I turned the key it was completely silent and dead. I spoke to a friend of mine who said it was probably the ignition switch or a starter motor. My questions are
1. Does my problem sound like an ignition switch or a starter? How much can those repairs cost?
2.What does an seized engine sound like?
Check the number 8 fuse it's a 20 amp fuse and it goes to the starter relay. This is located under the hood on the driver side under a plastic cover. This is a quick fix.

First thing is first, check fuses all of them this might save a lot of money if u doing your self. A seize engine won't crank or turn the word says it seized. Remember when u turn your ignition switch on a lot of light turn on on the dashboard, so maybe your ignition switch is bad. But remember what first is first

You could have a number of problems. One you are right that it could be the starter or ignition switch. Also the safty switch for park or nuetral (nuetral safty switch) could be the problem. Alocked up engine would sound like a loud bang on clunk when the key is turned to start. One thing you can try is to look and see if the lights dim or go out when you turn the key to start. If either one happens the battery connections or starter could be bad. Price wise it all depends on where you live and if you are doing the work or going to a repair shop or dealer. If you are doing yourself let me know what happens with the light test and I'll guide you thru the next steps. Most test are fairly easy with a little know how and patience. Let me know, Good Luck
