Default Starter Fuse 2001 Chrysler Sebring

Ok, Probably a very simple answer to this?
Car did not start, then I checked thestarter fuse, it was bad so I changed it.
Car starts! Turn car off won't start again and the fuse is blown?

Ok, so the best way to fix this or see if the starter is truly bad or not?

I've never seen this fuse action before in a bad starter? Of course I've never worked on a Chysler either.

Otherwise I'm taking this car to the dessert and roasting marsh mellows! JK
Any help?
Thanks
Jim

Check for loose connections at the starter. If none are found, you'll probably find that you've got a bad starter when you pull it and bench test it. It's a very common problem and your car appears to be getting to the age it starts happening.

Most parts stores can bench test the starter. It sounds like yours is drawing too much current, an indication of brush, armature, and bearing wear. A new or rebuilt one will likely solve the problem.

If you are truly broke, (as I have been at times!) you may be able to find a new set of brushes for much less money, and then clean the armature, install the new brushes, and you might just be on your way. Be sure that you don't use sand paper to clean your armature!!!! Sand leaves behind silica that simply eats up the new brushes and scores the armature. Your repair will be very short lived if you do. Try to find "flint" paper. If not available, a non-metallic cleaning sponge with a scrubby side will usually suffice.
