2005 Dodge Magnum (v6) will not turn over

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?

SOURCE: 2005 v6 dodge magnum wont start.

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

try activating and deactivatin your alarm you can do this with the key pad or the key turn it twice to the lock position than turn it twice to the unlock position this will unlock both doors, needless to say if you are getting a little green light on your dash with a key in it it is the imbobilizer device when it is in imobilizer status it will not let the fuel injectors prime up

Fuel and starter problem?

A couple of potential issues and/or solutions:

It sounds like the Senty Key Immobilizer Module (SKIM) did not recognize the key during startup and subsequently locked the engine down. Your dash should be indicating a "new" light, that is the anti-theft indicator.

First, call your dealer with your VIN and explain your problem. They should be able to provide another key.

I experienced this same problem about a year ago. The dealer suggested removal of the anti-theft fuse (I cannot remember the number) for about 15 to 30 minutes. After re-installation, I had no other problems.

Potentially, you may mimic this by removal of the negative battery terminal for about an hour to let the memory die, then try again, but not sure this is the same as fuse removal.

I will try to find the fuse number and re-post asap.

Your dealer may be able to provide the solution sooner.

If it is an electric fuel pump it will make a tick tick sound.

How do I know if the fuel pump is no longer working on my 2005 dodge magnum

u check the fuel pressure, u can also hear the pump (humming noise) when the key is cycled on and off, The fuel pressure test port is on the top of the engine in the fuel supply rail to the injectors, you will need a special test gage to test it.
