I have a 1999 convertable. Same problem for the last two years. Replaced battery a few years ago and was ok for awhile but after not driving it for a few days it needs the battery charger. Now I have to put it on the battery charger every night to assure a start in the morning. We are replacing the alternator tonight. Hopefully that will work. Very aggravating!!!

I had a 2001 Sebring 4door that had these same kind of electrical gremlins. Eventually found that the positive battery terminal on the fuse box under the hood was stripped and the positive battery cable was very loose. I put a flat steel washer on to get the nut up above the stripped threads and tightened the nut down firmly. After that the problems disappeared. Hope this helps.

A few years ago means it could be the battery again, also clean the battery connections and the other ends of the ground and positive cable ( If you pass the tests below, a bad/dirty connection is probably your problem/u>). Next,(alternator test) a voltmeter on the battery should read close to 14 volts with the car running and everything turned on (AC, headlight, etc.). Third, A meter should read 12.xx volts with the car off and the key out. If it is less than this, then it is (a) the battery or (b) something is draining the battery. I would start by getting the battery tested first. If that is good, start pulling fuses with the meter still on the battery. When you pull a fuse and the voltage comes up, you found the circuit draining your battery. Good Luck.
