    i do have a seperate security system with a kill switch, so your suggestion seems very logical. I have had that problem in instances before the alarm so i will test with the spare key to see if i can at least get the car to turn over for me.... again, I thank you for your help and will update you on the outcome.

It sounds like your security system is causing this. Does the red security light flash when this happens? It could be an incorrect key or defective key The key has a chip in it .The wrong key or defective key will cause this. It may have to go to a dealer to program or test your key.

2005 dodge magnum v6 3.5L no crank no start checked battery, relay box and all fuses. still nothing. how do i get to the starter? top of vehicle

Not from the top. And it's no fun getting out of the bottom either. I would find the starter relay and check if it works there. Jump pins 30 and 87. Look at the bottom of the relay to see which ones. If it cranks over, Look to the neutral safety switch(inside the transmission) or security may have been set.

05 Dodge Magnum went from 60 - 0mph in 0.0 seconds flat!!!

Sounds like you need a new key to me. When they start and die like that, the security system is not seeing a good key. This has to be done at a Dodge or Chrysler dealership. They can cut a new key and fob combo their as well as program them with their scan tool. It will cost about $200.00 to do this. The two cranks to start is a weak fuel pressure regulator. Probably located on the the fuel pump. May be serviced seperate now from the fuel pump assembly. Ask the dealer they will know.

Car cranks up but wont fire

With this limited info on vehicle I would remove fuel filter and make sure your pumping fuel to start, then i would check and see if I'm getting spark thru spark plugs. Would help to scan vehicle to look for codes that could point you in the right direction

Tes fuel pressure and if your fuel pump is working; test battery charge, starter and solenoids.

2006 dodge magnum won't start and it's not the pcm. help? would a fuse cause this?

Could be one of many sensors. Have you tried a battery disconnect reset?

If not, remove the negative battery terminal and then depress the brake pedal for 30 45 seconds.

Then, reconnect and try to fire it up.

When you crank the motor, does the tach needle bounce or move at all? If not, could be either Camsahft or Crank sensor.

Need to pull trouble codes from the OBD II port and see if there are any. They could give you a direction to go in also.

Good luck.............Don
