My 2008 sebring tries to start itself when I re-connect the battery cables and the wipers are going n lights r on etc. How do I start the car and fix this? Not sure if its been tampered with. The car was sitting in the garage for a month then I had to jump start it. Now it does not start.
Do you

Check the starter relay could be sticking causing the problem

Test the battery and alternator if okay-look for a direct short to ground on the positive battery cable and also check the battery wire at the alternator
