It could very well mean your battery is dead. A good suggestion is to try another battery which is known to be good and/or carefully try to jumpstart the vehicle with jumper cables and another battery.

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!
