There could be several reasons, ALL of which I've experienced. 1. Check to be sure the tranny is totally in "Park"...there is a lockout that will prevent starting if it's not fully engaged into Park. 2. Try allowing the power to illuminate the instruments before turning to "start"...this may work and is usually the sign of something going bad... 3. If it takes multiple attempts to start the vehicle, likely the brushes in the starter have gone bad requiring at a minimum the replacement of those or more than likely a new starter. From what I'm told, this is a very common problem on the 300M series. ADDED: If the car usually starts when cold and tends to not start after engine is fully warmed, check for a bad crankcase position sensor (also called a cam position sensor). Often this is the problem.

What would be the problem if a 1997 Chrysler Sebring convertible will not start does not crank?

If the engine will not even crank, then suspect a defective battery or starter. Start by removing both battery cables and cleaning the cable connections and battery posts. Reconnect them and see if it starts. If not put a battery charger on the battery and fully charge it. If it will not accept a charge is is defective. It the vehicle starts then you may have a defective alternator. If the battery is good and it still will not start, suspect a bad starter. You will have to remove it and have it tested.

Make sure you have a good connection at both posts. Poor connection can cause intermittent problems. Even if it is a new, a battery can still be faulty. It might even hold a charge for a while then fail. To be sure have the battery tested - easily done at most service locations. If the battery is good, next likely problem is the alternator. If it does not recharge the battery enough while you drive the battery will probably not have enough charge the next time you try and start.

How do you recharge a battery in 1993 Chevy lumina?

The simplest way to recharge a GOOD battery is to simply jump start and drive the vehicle for twenty to thirty minutes. The above answer is not a good idea if the battery was so weak it will not start the engine. You may damage the alternator by using it to charge a dead battery. You should charge the battery with a battery charger. That is the safest way.
