The battery in your Chrysler Sebring powers a number of different electrical components inside the vehicle. The spark plugs, radio, air conditioning, even the motor used to raise and lower the antenna all use electricity from the battery. To keep from running low on power, the battery is recharged by the alternator attached to the engine. Removing the battery from a Chysler Sebring is the first step in checking to see if the battery is still good or replacing it with a new one.
Park the Chrysler Sebring on a flat, firm surface, set the parking brake, turn off the engine and remove the keys.
Open up the bonnet of the Sebring. Wait about 30 minutes for the engine to cool off.
Locate the battery on the driver's side of the engine compartment towards the front.
Lift up the protective covers on the battery terminals if so equipped.
Loosen the nut on the negative (black) battery cable with a socket wrench turned counterclockwise. Continue turning until the terminal is loose. Pull the terminal connection off the battery. Repeat this process on the positive (red) battery cable.
Loosen the nuts on the battery tie-down if so equipped. Swing the tie-down out of the way or remove it completely.
Remove the battery from the Chrysler Sebring by lifting it up and off the battery mount.
