I have a 2006 chrysler sebring GTE convertible and this has been a constant problem of when I go to start the car it will blow the ignition fuse. Majority of the time I dont have a problem, but once it blows it, usually I will put a new one in and its fine. But just last week when it left me stranded, the fuse blew and I went thru like 12 fuses and then finally it started. I have had so many problems with this car. I got it in 2007 and it only had 28,000 miles it. I have had the thermostat replaced twice and the thermostat housing actually exploded and had to have that replaced. Not that long ago had to have the alternator replaced. And all this happened under 100,000 miles. And since I have had the car when im driving sometimes the car will shut-off in the middle driving, but it will start right back up. Honestly this car is a piece of crap. And one of the worst things is the fact that the battery is located behind the front driveside tire. Is there a electrical recall I dont know about, cause I have never had this happen in any car I have seen.

That fuse goes to the fuel pump relay so it's either the fuel pump is drawing to many amps and will need replacing or there is a short in wire leading to relay or pump. Have pump checked for draw.
