SOURCE: 2000 dodge intrepid won't start

If the key is returning to  the 'Run' position as it should, then either a relay controlling the solenoid or the solenoid itself is hanging up. The heavy contacts that send power to the starter can develop rough surfaces that can temporarily weld themselves together causing the starter to run on even though the engine is running and the key has returned to the proper position. There is also a spring that should normally help return the solenoid's contacts to their 'off' position that may be weakened.

Well, you can try unplugging the battery for a few minutes and also cycling the key back and forth in the ignition to try and reset the car alarm. I'm thinking that it may need to be jump started though too if the battery is low, as it may not be turning over fast enough. Let me know how this works out for you and what worked and didn't work.

SOURCE: 1999 dodge intrepid, battery light on

If your alternator is going bad the battery indicator light will come on your dash. I did the same thing before thinking my battery was bad and buying a new one. Turns out it was the alternator. Hope this helps..

If you have already replaced the battery with a new one, it may be that the starter is drawing more than the rated amperage, and/or that the relay for the remote start system is damaged. It could also be that the remote start has to be reprogrammed after having been without power for a while. If the car starts normally with a key, check the fuse for the remote start system. If the fuse is OK, try to find the relay for the remote start. If it is an aftermarket unit, it will probably be under the dash. Once you find it, you can test or replace this relay. If there is no separate relay for the remote start, or if this relay is not faulty, it probably needs to be reprogrammed. You can probably find instructions on the manufacturer's website.

99 intrepid hard to start and or cutts out, what is my solution


n most 90's and up Dodge/Chrysler vehicles, you can try to pull codes from the car's computer as long as you still have a charged battery. Put your key in the ignition, and turn it forward, but not far enough to engage the starter. Turn the key back to the Off position, then forward, back and forward again. In early 90s vehicles, the Check Engine light is going to flash a number of times. Often, code 55 means it is completed.
In mid and late 90s vehicles, you will often get a 4 digit code that may help you diagnose problems starting, mostly checking the eletrical, ignition and sensor systems.
