SOURCE: chrysler 2003 ignition key wont turn

your key may be overly worn and need replaced, but try jiggling the key and steering wheel at the same time. if that doesnt work try sraying a penetrating oil, like WD40 or PB Blaster, into the lock cylinder. it could also be the gear shift safety switch not disengaging or a faulty ignition switch

SOURCE: 1997 Chrysler T&C Van - gauges are out, intermittent start prob

do you have a (FOB) to lock and unlock your car. Because when you press the unlock button it is suppose to disarm the anti-theft control, which will allow the car to start but not run for long.

SOURCE: My battery light comes on and steering wheel locks

Steering wheel locks up? or does it get very hard to steer? If it gets very hard to steer sounds like your Serpentine belt is slipping. You may have a bad belt tensioner or possibly somthing leaking on belt causing it to slip. The belt runs the alternator and powersteering. Also check condition of the belt itself. Shiny or streached belt could cause it to slip also.

SOURCE: 2000 Chrysler T&C Ignition Switch Locks up

I used a combination of the above on my 2003 Town and Country but I did it the easy way. I simply placed a screwdriver in the ignition where the key goes and I tapped the screwdriver with a hammer (LIGHTLY). Apparently, this freed the stuck pins and everything works fine now. I then sprayed WD40 into the ignition so it will, hopefully, not stick again.

SOURCE: My '06 sebring won't start. Replaced the battery

Have you checked the fuses? There should be a fuse box under the hood open the box the diagram inside will show what fuse is for the ignition. Pull the fuse and hold up to the light the little wire inside should have no break between the two posts of the fuse. Don't forget to check the fuse panel inside the car also there should be a secondary ignition fuse in that panel also.

Car will not crank and the timing chain is fine


Well, that's good, but even if the chain was broke, the starter would still be tryiing to start the car. Since your starter wont crank the engine over, your start circuit has a malfunction. Possibly the starter went out, so you need to have that tested for a malfunction. A simple test of part of the circuit is to turn the key to on.. Now your dash warnimg lights (oil, alternator, and check engine light) should be on. Are they on, and your gauges working? If not you have lost power to the ignition switch, so check your battery connections. If the key switch turns the dash on, then turn key to start. Do you hear a click from the engine area? If not, have the starter checked. If you do hear a click, or several clicks, then power from the switch is causing that click, probably at the starter. Turn the headlights on and observe them. Are they bright? If not, charge the battery up. If they are bright, watch them while a helper turns the key to start. If the lights go dim in start, probably a bad starter. If the lights don't dim, it could be a bad connection somewhere, like the battery or starter. Good luck

When attempting to start my car, there is a clicking noise. The battery seems to be fine, air comes on, radio and lights power on. Any suggestions? of coarse i will not start. I'm a single female with no...


You have a solenoid on your starter. The solenoid is what you most likely hear clicking. The battery seems to be fine from your info. The starter can be repaired with a new solenoid. It really depends on who you go to and what the charge is to repair. The battery sends power to the solenoid, the solenoid kicks power to the starter to turn the starter for your engine to start. Good Luck

Clicks when attempting to start


If it is just one click per attempt, it may be a bad solenoid on the starter or fire wall relay
If it rapid clicking, it is probably a low battery charge.
Turn on your head lights and check for brightness, leave them on and attempt to crank engine, if the lights go dim, the battery is probably dead. If they stay bright, one of the solenoids ( relays) is probably bad.
