Question about 2002 Chrysler Sebring
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.
