I put a brand new battery in the 2007 Sebring. Won't start…

Customer Question
I put a brand...

I put a brand new battery in the 2007 Sebring. Won't start still. I jumped it and it started. Drove 10 miles home, turned it off over night. Woke up, started. It sat for 3 hrs while I worked, then dead again. Jumped it and it started after 2 turns. Had it tested at an auto place. 12.9 volts while still running from the jump. But 2 after turned off and wouldn't start again. Did testing they could determend faulty battery. Bought new one, tested at store and it was fine. Got it in car, won't start.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?

No cleaned them

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Sebring yourself? What have you tried so far?

Just what I shared. Mechanic at local car place said just put a new battery in and you'll be fine.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Alternator tested ok and starter tested ok.

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
