Well your not crazy but you are talking about 2 different things. The starter will spin but there is a thing called a ben-dex that is driven out of the starter motor by centrifugal force it then engages the starter ring on the flywheel, it is probably this that is stuck or seized up and not engaging the fly wheel. Answer is to remove the starter and see if this is the problem.

2000 Chrysler 300m 3.5/ turn key I hear the solenoid spinning but not the starter motor, everything else works had starter motor checked it's good, also there are no codes form obd 2 scanner what's going...


A solenoid only makes a clicking or clunking sound. They do not spin.
You must be hearing the starter spinning but the starter gear has not engaged with the flywheel. That's the solenoid's job. It must be stuck on not working. Have the solenoid and the starter gear movement .
Hope this helps.

sounds like your bendix on the starter spring load mechinism gear you will need to test it by removing your starter and hooking up a battery to it. You will see and hear the gear come out and turn...if it doesnt function properly then you will have to replace your starter.also may want to check the solinoid..

Have a 99 sebring just changed battery and car wonk crank


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

2002 Sebring LXi Convertible Starter Motor Fuse Blown 2x


Starter solenoid. I don't have the page here but in chiltons a page shows the ignition to fuse to relay to starter and if you look closely it's quite basic. I had same problem with constant fuse blow #8. The solenoid over time wears and sometimes sticks. When it sticks, your system can overload thus burn fuse. I bet you never stalled out while driving, but only when you shut off and start somewhere it's a no go. That's because you're system is already engaged. I had to change starter as solenoid part of it all. I see others suffer this same problem so please share this around. Solenoid can stick for a millisecond.
