Question about 2001 Dodge Intrepid
In recent weeks, the automobile will not start at various times. The battery (purchased 6 months ago) and alternator (less then 2 years old) have both checked out fine. Checked all fuses, they look good too. All wiring seems to be in order, unharmed and secure. Once running, the vehicle runs perfectly fine. No abnormal noises. Serpentine belt looks good.
This is a problem that happens intermittently. Additionally how does one go about checking the ignition switch?
Thank you in advance for any correspondence.
Check the negative terminal on the battery. Mine did the same thing, and when I finally decided to check, the cable end had nearly corroded to nothing. They used thin copper band clamps instead of something with a little more heft. I replaced mine with a marine-style brass clamp. Not a problem since. It's tough to get to the battery, so plan on stripping out the air box to get to the battery tie-down bolts, then remove the access panel from the passenger side wheel well to get to the battery.
