Just Where is the Starter Relay on a 1997 Chrysler Sebring Convertible Jxi?

Posted by Russell Wright on September 27, 2010

I think I just had another starter quit in my Sebring Convertible.  At least I got it into the garage before it gave up the ghost!

I’m troubleshooting…and it’s been a long time since I’ve had to troubleshoot a starter in this car…so I thought I’d start with the starter relay.  It’s located in the Power Distribution Center (PDC), but my preliminary investigation didn’t find it.  I originally looked in under the cover that has POSITIVE written on it.  What the shop manual doesn’t tell you is that there is another piece to the PDC.  The relay is actually in the “auxiliary” PDC, which is located under the intake hose.  Remove one bolt holding the plastic piece on the intake plenum, loosen the screw on the intake hose clamp, and disconnect the air cleaner cover to access it.  Here are the pics.
