Question about 2002 Chrysler Sebring

3 Answers

2002chrysler sebring My car won't start, when I turn the key it makes no sound. A couple of times when my car wouldn't start, I got a jump and it started right up, now it won't start at all. What could be the problem? I wanted to take it to AutoZone to have them check the battery, alternative and starter but now it won't start at all. Hope you can give me some advice! Thanks

Am going through this now. Check the fuses under the hood. One is burnt out due to the short mentioned by guest above. Find the short (where it's grounding out) and fix ASAP.

I had a similar problem! It turned out that due to the fact that the battery is under the driver's side wheel well, there needed to be a way to jump the car if needed. So the engineers in there infinit wisdom added a post under the hood and ran a +pos lead from the battery to it. However, in my case this lead rubbed against a sharp metal edge. Over the years the insulation wore away and initially caused intermintent problems, such as, the car not starting and a funny smell. I finally found out the root cause when my car shut off on me while is was driving it. I was lucky the short fried nothing. Instead of replacing the whole wire harness, which would have been expensive, I cut the charred remnant back and knocked a new lead from the battery to the post. This may or may not be your problem but its worth checking out!!!

It sounds as though your battery is completly dead.You will need to replace it and then have your alternator tested.Most likely the alternator is not charging the battery,and the battery has been drained down too many times and now may have a dead cell.

My car sounds like it wants to start but it won't, we replaced the fuel filter and it sounds exactly like it did before we replaced it, still won't start.

Make sure battery has a full charge.
Try cycling the ignition switch on and off several times before you crank it, to see if it helps. If it helps, check your fuel system. My info says fuel pressure, 35--45 psi.
How long since a tune-up? Any applicable trouble codes?

I'd start with a battery first. Sounds like the battery has 1 or more dead cells in it. the battery may have all the volts you could want but if it doesn't have the proper amperage it won't crank the motor. You can have the battery load tested for free at Auto Zone or Advance Auto. A simple down and dirty test would be to disconnect the Positive cable and jump the vehicle by connecting directly to that and a good ground on the block. The motor should turn over as long as the vehicle you use as a jump has the proper amperage in it's battery. If the vehicle starts then it is the battery, if it doesn't then you need to look at the starter and other components.

Check your starter solenoid. Sometimes the wires loosen, or the solenoid just goes bad. Check to make sure all wires are firmly attached. Hope this helps.

Wont start

Check the condition of your battery. You may have a battery going bad. The 300, Sebring, Intrepid, and most of the intermediate sized Chrysler cars do wierd stuff like the dash lights going crazy. Try jump starting it.
