Question about 2005 Dodge Magnum
My 2005 Dodge Magnum will not turn over. I turn the key dash lights come on, i heard the fuel pump activate but the engine does not turn over. Battery is good, all electronics are powered up (head lights\ac\heater\radio...everything electronic powers up nice and bright. the battery is not low or dead. Just to be sure I hooked up my wife's car to jump start but still nothing. I checked the manual for the fuses related to the ignition and starter...they all look good. Bought a starter reply but don't see where the goes...according to my owners manual there is nothing that the starter reply would fit into that is related to the starter...but to test I swapped all the relays out and tried to start the car...but still doesn't turn over. anyone have any advice?

Your battery is probably ready to be replaced. It needs a long slow charge or when you try to jump start with another car, you need to leave the jumper cables on for 20 or 30 mins at least. This will bring up the level of your battery and perhaps it will start.
For future reference the only true measure of a battery;s condition is by measuring the state of the electrolyte in the battery. To do this you need 2 things. Onew is a small charger. Not a bad thing to have with winter coming on. You can get one for under $30. The second thing is a hydrometer. This is a meter that tells you the specific gravity of a batteries electrolyte> you can get on for under $5. To use this device you take the covers off the top on the battery, put the rubber tube into the battery and draw up some liquid.. A reading in the green is good condition. One has to check all 6 cells, because what typically happens is 4 od 5 cells will check good and the others will not. TIME to replace the battery.BTW, these measurements should always be made after the battery has been charged.
Hope this helps Good luck Loringh PS Please leave a rating Thanksl

There's only 2 more things that I can think of, check the fuse for the ignition, then the computor itself, you did everything else.It might be the problem and may not.
