Why wont my 1997 Chrysler Sebring JXI Convertible turn over. Its not turning on. Could it be the starter?

Honestly it depends on the sound you are hearing when you try to crank it over. This is not 100% accurate, however in most cases if the vehicle does either of the following... 1. Clicks multiple times in succession 2. Does nothing at all, but you have dash lights and so forth It is either a bad battery or battery connection. If the vehicle makes one loud click then in most cases it is a starter issue. Good Luck!

Ideas on how to do double clicks in Irish Dance?

To do double clicks it is first easiest to start out pushing off from a table or high surface so you can jump really high. Then while you are jumping try to click your heels twice. It helps if your toes are pointed and feet are turned out. Once you can get the clicks by pushing off a surface try to then do it on your own. It takes a lot of practice but eventually you will be able to get it.

If you mean ... why the crank won't turn when the key is on and the acc.'s will turn, Well sounds like crank shaft is locked up. When the crank bearings try to pile up on each other and jam the crankshaft in it's final resting place, till rebuild.

1990 and 1989 Jeep Cherokee Laredos wont start Battery has power Lights radio windows work What could be the problem?

I recently had this problem with another vehicle. If the vehicle will crank but not start, it may be a leaking fuel injector. A leaking fuel injector will flood the engine, not allowing it to start. This is especially true if the vehicle will not take a jump start. If you can hear the fuel pump (in the fuel tank) turn on when you first try to start the vehicle, then the fuel pump is working. It generally tries to stay on for about 5-7 seconds. If it will not crank, then it may be your starter. Hope this helps. SD
