2001 Chrysler starting problem

My 2001 Chrysler Sebring started blowing fuses occasionally when we try to start it. First time it started right up when I changed the fuse. Second time it wouldn't and I blew about 4 fuses. Then had it towed to the shop and when it got there it worked with a new fuse. Now it has blown again and is stuck in the driveway. Is this a starter problem?

    I have the same problem but I own a 01 sebring convertable with a 2.7 engine and its differant than a 01 sebring sedan..but with my starting problem I was told at first from a dealership garage that it was a weak ground..turned out to be my PCM wiring system and all has to be replaced.

    My problem started with nothing at all working, no dash lights, no radio no start. Then it seemed to recharge itself after the next day, it would start and last for a few days.

Fuses are'nt linked to startor that's a relay as I have mine ran to a car-PC with voice start. ANyhow you would need to look up in owners book fuse location chart. What fuse socket that keeps blowing runs to, my guess is it blows before you start car as soon as your ignition goes to accessory then it kicks on that fuse bank. DO NOT STICK BIGGER FUSE IN AS THIS COULD CAUSE FIRE. first find out what that fuse controls.. is it the fuel system, radio, PCM ect.. could be a ignition fuse but these tend to be bigger what size is the fuse you blow?

Sounds like you might have a bad starter. I would take that one out and have it checked first of all.

I would have to look at a wiring diagram and see how that circuit is run but the fuse shouldn't do anything else but the starter and maybe the ign switch....

Can you get a wiring dia of the car? trace out that circuit and see if there is anything else that could be shorting out

I have a 2001 Chrysler Sebring and the fuel and starter fuse continues to blow after replacing it with a new fuse when i try and start the car.


Just asking, isn't the starter fuse a 60-80 Amps one? In that case you might have quite an electrical shortcut. Check for any exposed wire or loose connections around the starter. If it is a less beefy (10-20 amp) fuse it might be the Starter solenoid fuse, in that case maybe it is on it's way out. I still don't understand why the fuel pump fuse will blow though. In any doubt you could also take your car to the dealer.

Cheers

The fuse of my chrysler 2001 sebring is blowing and the car wont start


yea agree but first listen when u turn the key, if the fuel pump makes some noise it means u have a problem with the starter! if no sound from the pump (sound should comes from the back seats) then its pump!

2002 sebring start/fuel fuse


Sounds like the fuel pump could be shorted or seized. I would begin troubleshooting there. It may need replacing.

Check the battery connections and make sure contact surfaces are clean and hardware is tight.Unless the starter or starter relay is going bad on you, 9 of ten times this will get you going again.

Cold Heat in a Sebring


I would have the heater core checked. It could be something as simple as a fuse but unlikely. not likely to be the thermostat as that would make the car overheat if it wasnt working.

2001 Sebring Convertible Starter Fuse Problem


The reason that you are blowing fuses is that your starter is drawing too much current. This usually means that the starter is failing (too much internal resistance). By increasing the size of the fuse yoiu are running more current through the wires than they are designed to handle. This can melt the insulation and maybe start a fire.
