Question about 2001 Chrysler Sebring
I blew the 20 amp start fuse. I replaced it and the car started ok. I was looking for a wire diagram to see what could have made the fuse blow.
The starter circuit on today vehicle has not change since the good old days.
I attached two pictures of 2001 Sebring 2.7 starter for reference.
There are only few items on the starter circuit.
Heavy duty positive wire to the positive battery terminal or alternator terminal (protected by fuse and fuse-able link)
Start relay/solenoid (small tubular) solenoid that sit on top of the starter motor) that push the starter gear toward the flywheel
and the ignition control wire from the key switch inside the steering column.
When you turn the ignition key to the start position,it power up the relay/solenoid.
Fraction of a second later the starter spin up and the solenoid push the small starter gear onto the flywheel to start the engine.
When you release to the key to run position the spring pull the starter gear back to it sited position.
Today's re-manufacturer for your car cost about $145. Plus a small core deposit for few dollar until you return the old starter for recycle.
The warranty range from lifetime to 90 days (depend on brand)
An aged start will fail in a hot day. The wire insulation coating can wear out. In time it will cause an internal and intermittent short inside the starter motor.
Replace the starter is a 1/2 hour job for most DIY'er.
I hope this answer your question.

The only wire that would cause that is the litte terminal wire leading from the starter to the relay, then frm the relay to the ignition switch.
It could also have been your starter motor which caused it to blow as well, so check the wiring first make sure its not touching any metal anywhere, if thats ok then it would have been your starter motor.
If you need more information just let me know.
