#13 of 22 01 Sebring key turns but nothing happens.
Sep 28, 2011 (2:26 am)
Here is a tricky one for you guys. I have an 01 Sebring Limited Convertible, I went out to start it one night and nothing happened. All that happens is the mileage and the P-R-N-D shows up on the instrument panel, and the temp shows up but no accessories turn on or any of the warning lights come on. The battery is fully charged. I also turned the headlights on and tried to start it and the lights didnt dim. What is the cause of this problem? I need to know because I really dont want to take it to a shop if it is something I can fix. Please help.... Thanks

I have the same problem with my 2006 Sebring, Touring. I see there are no replys to your post. Could you tell if you got it fixed yet. I am thinking may e the relay or 40 amp fuse.

My 2006 Chrysler Sebring will not start. The warning lights, radio and wipers will NOT work,...the lights work, remote entry does, the windows work. When I turn the key the P R N D 2 1 and the oil indicator lights up and the ding ding door is open works, Ok, the car will not jump off, I replaced the radio fuse, the 10 amp ignition fuse, had the battery tested. I cant seem to find the starter to tap on it even with a diagram, the one Autozone gave me looks nothing like my car. When I turn the key you can hear a faint tick from the fuse compartment under the hood. I don't really think its the relay. I hate newer cars. So if anyone has a suggestion or can pinpoint the starter for me, I have even crawled under the car, I think I found it, but not to sure, So OMG IM gonna blow a fuse and need to be replaced! I knew to never buy a Chrysler, but it sooo nice.

Well I had the same problem with my 2001 Chrysler. Just letting you know the starters in these cars are covered with a skid plate on the bottom of the engine and you have to take a motor mount off. lol... But it sounds like the same problem I had with mine and it needed a new starter. I do alot of work with cars but honestly you may have to take it to the dealer to get it replaced because I wasnt able to do it.
Just FYI I lost all dash lights and the mileage counter didnt come up.

Thanks so much, I had read that the starter was under there I just really was hoping it was somewhere else and didn't want to start tearing into it, I hate new cars! I bout blew a fuse just taking the battery out. What a stupid concept, in the wheel well! I have to get me some jack stands now, need em anyway, just don't trust the floor jack that much. I thank you again. I hope this is my problem, if not, gasoline and a rag is in order.

Well now, I didn't have a skid plate to remove but it was a bitch getting the starter off. took it to the auto parts place had it tested, nothing wrong with it. So then put it back on, and guess what? Apparently, I missed the FUSE that was blown, I checked them all but I couldn't tell where this one was blown, how I found out, a tester. A fuse and flipping fuse! Oh well over it now.

I have a 1997 Chrysler Sebring convertible, replaced the battery yesterday, went through all the wires, found one melted and a loose one on the starter. Car worked with only a little hesitation after new battery was installed, this morning brought the car up for gas, brought it home, back to not starting. Waited about 15 minutes and tried again, it started with a slightly longer hesitation, but it started without a jump. I was told before replacing the battery, that the started was drawing more power than it requires, Please any help would be wonderful. Thank you in advance.

1996 Sebring LXi Sedan bought two months ago for $2500 with 103k: I love this car, but....(1) hard to get into gear when starting, either reverse or drive - have to jiggle it around and eventually it goes (so far!) (2) how what where? I badly cracked the front spoiler on this used car & in trying to tape it back together found that it was already being held in place by black plastic ties! To whom should I go for fixing this? (3) had to have several ignition keys made because they would stop working. (4) BIG PROB now - the car key turn makes the starting noise, but the car does not start, so I know it isn't the battery. Don't even know what kind of place I should have it towed to? Last, but not necessarily least - I don't know how much coolant it takes - there is no guide on the car and no indicator where the fill line is. If you have any help ideas for me, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance!
