Trouble starting my 2002 Dodge Intrepid

There have been times recently that my 2002 Dodge Intrepid won't start. It cranks over but just won't start. Sometimes it's just for a couple tries but yesterday I sat in a parking lot for about 45 minutes trying to start it. I thought that the battery would go dead before it started. It finally started and I got home. Like I said, this has been happening for a short time but it has never taken that long to start. Does any one have any info on this or has any one had a similar problem?

    dodge intrepid wont start after replacing heat blower control module. It has sparks, has fuel. mistery? or an electronic build in factory defect. I found out a lot of people with "dodge wont start after repair". found no solution.

    I took mine to the dealer and they couldn't get any code failures from the computer. The mechanic said he had seen this before and suggested replacing the camshaft sensor. I had them do that. It seems to have fixed the problem.

Try to fix the crankshaft sensor . That should fix the problem if not, next thing camshaft sensor. Then after that if no codes are coming up with a check engine light on. If the car is still running try some B12 cleaner that you put in your gas tank to clean out the engine and intake a bit. I have a 1996 ES 3.5 and I replaced the crankshaft sensor and it did the trick.

It could be a number of things. i'd go with the easiest fix first. check your air filter, then check spark plugs, then fuel filter. replace as necesary. good luck

My 2002 3.6 Dodge intrepid won't start after changing battery and driving 15 miles

Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel. Also, check fuel injector pulse. Do testing with engine cranking.
Any applicable trouble codes?
Sometimes when battery voltage is lost some modules may have a problem, including your security system, but, you said you have already driven it. Your charging system work ok?
