Question about 2001 Chrysler Sebring

1 Answer

Battery Light I attempted to start the car on yesterday and it just click after several attempts the car then started Continueing down the road I went through a flooded street in Louisiana and the battery light came on. I then shut the car off and waited about 2hr and crank it back up and the light was still on I traveled about 30miles down the highway and the light was still on I then shut the car off at my destination. And on today I started the car up and the light was still on. I drove about 40 miles and then all the lights on the dash came on and the car shut down. From there the car would not start. I purchased a new battery and the car crank right up but the battery light is still on... Can you tell me what this might be? No code has come up on the speed odometer.

I would start with checking all your wiring coming from your battery. Corrosion can get into the wiring and restrict the current and cause all sorts of bad things to happen. The battery light is supposed to come on when the voltage drops past a certain point, it might be possible that your alt is going bad. These are a just a couple of possibles to start with.

Good luck

Engine won't turn over


More info is needed. Does the engine CRANK? In other words does the starter spin the engine over but not start? If it fails to crank, it is a starter or battery problem.

Doesnt want to even attempt to start the battery is good


Try tapping the starter with a hammer while someone bumps the key. If it tries to turn replace starter if nothing happens then i would say the starter solenoid is probably bad.

Truck Wont Start and Battery Runs Down.


get a load test done on you battery and alter nator and check your starter for corrision check battery connections before you jump start it and when hooking up cables to your truck let it charge for a few minutes before you crank it if alternator is fried it will only run on juice of battery then will die.the clicking sound is your starter trying to engage but not enough cranking amps left in battery if you can get it going or take the battery out and take to a good auto shop and get them to load test it no point replacing a good battery just to find out it is alternator or starter
I personaaly think it may be alternator but suggest you test if battery is good starter as well ! more thing check that battery terminals are clean and tight
