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.
