Question about 2004 Chrysler Sebring

2 Answers

Car Electrical Problem: I have two fuses that keep shorting.

I have 2 ten amp fuses that short out under certain conditions. Also, I think I have narrowed it down to certain operations that will lead to two fuses either one or both ''popping''. If it's really hot (85+)and been sitting in the sun, at work, it will put the car in lump mode when i turn it on and my gauges don't work.If I plug in my ipod player into the cigarette lighter it shorts the fuses. If I try to put the top down, it shorts out. There have been times where I have just been driving and it just shorts out, fortunately just on local roads.

Your ipod may be shorting the live connector to ground & thus blowing the fuse. Check out the cigarette lighter & the ipod adaptor for any parts shorting to ground. These items may be related perhaps a simple bump in the road is causing the shorting effect. Check this out & make sure there are no bare power wires. Lighters are known to cause similiar problems. Good luck in your search!

Electrical short!


That sounds like the cooling fan relay. Find fuse/relay cover and check condition of fan relay. It should be labeled. Easy to replace.

Good luck,
