Sometimes does not start and now it turns off while driving
Hello, the here is the problem with my 2004 chrysler Crossfire, it started not turning on every once in a while I mean I could use it the whole day and after turning it on a couple of times it would not star :S and after a couple of minutes (10 - 120 mins) it would start like nothing happend and it was like that until recently it started turning off on its own when i drive it, and i took it to the dealer and they told me that the scanned the computers on the car and there was no faults on it, there fore they don't know how to fix it, i have noticed that when the weather is really hot it happens more frecuently and i think that i have to wait for it to cool down and the i can restart it thats why the waiting time but i have no idea how to deal with this problem, if any one has an idea of how to act on this please let me know

Hello Paul, You stated your crossfire stalls and the usually restarts. It could be several things that cause this... If the check engine light is on, have it scanned to determine what caused it to come on - It sounds like you are having an intermittent crankshaft position sensor failure. I hope this information is helpful...Happy Holidays.
The lights are on their own personal circuit from the starter. Every time you turn the key on the connections are getting warmer each time. You state after the 3rd time it will start. You will need to check all connections to make sure they are very clean and tight. A loose or corroded connection will cause a problem such as yours
This is not the problem I have a chrysler crossfire and experienced the same problem there is some good news if it frequently stops working for no reason the problem is most likely the RCM module has a shortage in it I fixed my crossfire and 3 others buy repairing the RCM its easy and simple any question you can email me I can give you a easy walk through to fix the problem and avoid paying hundred at the dealership it shouldn't take no more than 15 minutes to fix DIY!!
This sounds like one of those interesting problems. What you are going to have to do is find a light bulb type of electrical tester, and a schematic for the wiring on the car (or get a mechanic to do it). When the problem comes up again, you have to find where the power to the module is not coming through a weak connection. It is something that warms up and then breaks connection. The first thing to do is change the fuses for the engine controls. Fuses are cheap and sometimes they develop a crack that opens when they see a rise in temperature from a heavy electrical load or warm or cold weather changes. Other things that cause problems are the wires that connect to the battery, and splices in those wires which are usually hidden inside a bundle of wires. Also inspect the connectors that hook up to the engine module and make sure the pins are not pulling out from tension in the wires and other defects. You said it doesn't turn over, so also check the connections at the starter. Sometimes main power is routed through there.
