I have a 95 Avenger ES 2.5L V6 but I have the same problem than yours in my 98 Rodeo (and after spending money in towing and buying a starter, I found out that the problem was the "STARTER RELAY" under the hood, fuse box) a $ 6.00 dollars part at AutoZone. Also my son in law has a 92 Corolla with the same problem and it was the Starter Relay (both vehicles automatic transmission). So as a friendly advise, before pulling the starter or buying anything check if the starter relay works, it's not hard to test it.
I know how to do it, if you are gonna do it you can email me. Good luck!
#170 of 198 96 Avenger Exhaust + Overhaul
Oct 14, 2007 (12:00 pm)
Has anyone had to replace the exhaust from front to back? If so, how? The main exhaust manifold can only be ordered from a shop and now includes CC. Has anyone considered matching up the frame with an classic from the 60-70's. Maybe too far fetched, but my vehicles' is rusted thru rockers (bilateral) and it needs a complete overall anyway. How about a RatRod project. Any ideas?

I know its been awhile since your post but can you tell me where this starter relay is located as my son has a 1995 Avenger as well and we want to try this first but according to the mechanic books looks like it shows under the dash and of course the dealer mechanics said they don't know when we call. We need a number off it to get a new part for it but need to locate and take out first. Any help on this would be appreciated just want to try the cheaper way first. Thanks

I know this is old post but I hope it will save money for more of you. This is the same thing a lot of people have. I have had 96 Sebring 2.5 and a 97 Avenger 2.5 and both had this problem. The first go around I spent $1,700 to watch the experts parts swap. Her is the magical answer and it is this easy.
There is a bank of relays on the firewall, 3 to be exact. One of them is the master shut off curcuit and you will get no spark when the car will not start. $30 at the wrecking yard will get all three and you are done.
