    ahoy guru, the starter draw wont do that, there are parralell circuits, one low amp that calls in the demand of the relay that kicks the high amp solinoid circuit...the starter could be grounded to the chassis and wont blow fuse 8, it would blow the 30 amp main fuse for the starter only

There is a short. older cars have many problems because few people think about ALL of the ground wires in your car.Locate them (to the body and the frame) clean surfaces shiny clean with sand paper even if they "appear ok". Save money and trouble.

I have a 2004 Chrysler Sebring Convertible and for some reason I keep blowing a fuse. Or I have a short circuit some where that is blowing the fuse. Monday morning it wouldn't start. Tuesday at the...

To find out what circuit is drawing down the battery, Remove all the fuses making sure you mark where they come from. Disconnect the positive lead on the battery. Put one fuse in at a time. Then after each fuse put the positive cable to the post. If it sparks, you have found the draw. That will at lest identify the circuit. Then you can look into that circuit or bring it to the repair shop knowing what is drawing it down.

I have an '04 Sebring Convertible with the 2.7L V-6 engine. It has been running fine with no problems for over a year since I bought it. Then the other day, I had it detailed and drove it home...

This happens all too often on the Chryslers, the starter fuse blowing. The cause in most cases is the starter solenoid. I recommend replacing the starter and the solenoid when this happens, to keep from having to do it again a few months later, I hope this helps.
