chrysler-sebring-convertableMy car is starting to piss me off.  It was working fine until my wife and I tried to go shopping and then the thing wouldn’t start.  I turned the key and not even a noticeable drain on the battery.  Everything else seemed to be working with the exception of the gas gauge.  You know, when you turn the key into the “on” position the gas gauge registers how much gas you’ve got but not in this case.  Anyway, my wife and I started to look through the fuses and relays and at first we couldn’t see what the problem was so we ran out and bought a starter relay just to see if that was the problem.  Got it home and it wasn’t.  Rats!  Well, at least we’re only out $8.  Then, as if by an act of God, I pulled one of the ignition fuses and I noticed it was burned out.  Now we have the culprit so I ran out and bought some 20 amp fuses.  I got home, put the new fuse in the car turned the key and the new fuse popped.  I tried another one and it worked the first time and popped the second time.  Now I know I have a short somewhere.  Now I know what I’m doing this weekend.  It’s either that or I keep a steady supply of fuses in the car.
