Question about 2003 Chrysler Concorde
When I turn the key on, it doesn't turn over or click. The lights, radio, windows and everything works, but the car won't start. When I turn the key to the off position, I get ten beeps. What is this and why won't it start? Please help.
Turn the key to ON , OFF , ON , OFF , ON within 5 seconds an ODB 2 code should appear in the odometer. You can look it up on google under ODB codes. If no code appears (this happens a lot) then look under the hood for the relay box by the left fender. There will be a starter relay and a bunch of other relays. Verify they all have the same number. You can swap the starter relay with another (other than the shutdown relay) like headlight relay. If that doesn't work then it could be an ignition switch or starter solenoid.
Good luck Ron

I assume you've checked all connections from the battery and starter to make sure they are clean and tight. It is a little weird that you do not have trouble starting in neutral yet you get a clicking sound in park. My first thought would be the neutral safety switch on the transmission but you shouldn't even get a click in park if that is bad.
One possibility is the contacts in your starter have worn down and are causing too more resistance (explains the clicking). At the back of your starter is a metal cover that is held on by three tiny bolts (6mm). Disconnect the battery first! (You might have to remove the starter to get to this part) Remove this cover and pull out the plunger assembly. Underneath are two brass plates. Compare one plate to the other. If one is noticeably thinner then it could be the cause of the clicking. You will even see a round groove in the plate. You can buy the plunger and contacts from this website: http://www.nationsautoelectric.com/densoparts.html or you can opt to get a starter from your friendly auto parts store. The first picture shows the bad contact on the left. Notice the groove, the metal has become really thin there. This picture shows a pitted plunger assembly. Always good to replace it too.This picture shows all the new parts installed.

SOURCE: mini van wont start
Sounds like starter selanoid, but first make sure battery connections are clean and tight, if sure they are then turn on headlights and try to start if still clicks and lights dim its starter.

1999 CONCORDE: check the battery terminals probably they are not tight enough...something like that happened to me just the lights turned on and the car seemed to be dead, the battery is still ok since then. I just needed to buy new terminals.
