The guy who said you had three sensors blown probably took your money under false pretences. Sensors don't "blow" unless they get struck by lightning ot something equally unlikely. If that was the case the car wouldn't be starting at all. Once the guy accepted the job of discovering why your car wouldn't start I think it is disgusting that he took your money but didn't cure the problem.

I have never heard of rubbing the battery leads together and I don't think doing that would be at all helpful.

I would take a guess that your car's immobiliser is intermittently not working. The car of a friend had very much the same sort of trouble. The car usually started at home after being stood for a while but once it had been run it was a gamble whether it started again. The dealer said it needed a lot of money spent on it so he eventually scrapped it.
Some of those times when it wouldn't start I was the guy who had to discover why. The engine would crank and there was a spark but no injection in spite of the fuel pump running. I could find nothing wrong with the wiring or anything. It was only by reading the vehicle handbook and studying the wiring diagram and asking a few questions that I realised the immobiliser was faulty. This was my first experience of that type of car.

I believe you need to do the same and discover why your engine doesn't start in a similar way. For an engine to start it has to have fuel, spark, timing, compression and a decent cranking speed so when it doesn't start one or more of those things are missing. You need to discover which and then discover why.. OR you could call the auto locksmith first and ask him to ensure the immobiliser is properly and reliably disarming every time.

Finally, it never hurts to begin by reading the vehicle handbook...

Good luck!

try over riding the starter relay on the fender ,it has one there right?. dont go to a mechanic yet. the engine aint seized. if it doesnt have this relay then i would get the alternator tested. if you want to test it yourself it can be costly for the right equip. autozone usually tests for free. i dont know were you live so if theres not an autozone. let me know if you cant get it tested.

starter wont click because there's not enough "juice" to turn it over. this isnt because of the battery as you have just replaced it. it is due to a bad alternator recharging the battery as you drive. if it were only a fuse it would be the solenoid in the starter. but if it had started after you installed the battery then its not the solenoid. solution: buy a refurbished alternator and

SOURCE: Car will not stay on after I JUMP START

Just try to keep the gas and drive for at leat 15 min HWY if possible. Yes, it will turn off if you let go the gas, but it will restart and stay on as long as you press on gas. Just keep on driving and the computer will readjust the emission inputs and will get back to normal.

When you jump started the vehicle, it started as normal and you drove to a shop to have a new battery installed.?? Correct??

1. Who removed the old battery and installed the new one?

2. Did the car start normally immediately after the new battery was fitted? How frequently were you able to drive the car on the new battery before the problem you described appeared?

3. Has anything been done to the vehicle since the new battery was fitted.?

Our 2008 dodge charger wont start,and the radio wont work,checked all fuses/circuit breakers/relays,all good,but it still won't start-cam somebody-PLEASE help me???


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

I have a 2008 dodge charger se. I try to start it and it wont start in park. I place it in neutral and it takes a few times to finally get it to crank. I replace the solenoid relay already and reset the...


The Neutral safety switch in the Transmission is the problem. If it doesn't send the signal to the computer when it is in park it won't crank over. Replace the Neutral safety switch and the problem should be resolved. Make sure you check the linkage for proper adjustment if you have a center console shift. That doesn't actually connect directly to the transmission except through a linkage and it may show to be in park but not actually be fully engaging in park. Sometimes you can turn the lower part of the steering column by hand to get it to lock fully in park if this is the case with your situation then for sure it is the linkage being out of adjustment.

I have a 2006 Dodge Charger. Went out yesterday, car started fine. Got home and stooped at my mailbox, when I went to start the car it wouldn't start. I did notice the lights on the dash would go dim...


I'd start with a battery first. Sounds like the battery has 1 or more dead cells in it. the battery may have all the volts you could want but if it doesn't have the proper amperage it won't crank the motor. You can have the battery load tested for free at Auto Zone or Advance Auto. A simple down and dirty test would be to disconnect the Positive cable and jump the vehicle by connecting directly to that and a good ground on the block. The motor should turn over as long as the vehicle you use as a jump has the proper amperage in it's battery. If the vehicle starts then it is the battery, if it doesn't then you need to look at the starter and other components.

If the battery is dead,it is a dangerous practice
to jump start it,not recommended I should say

If you can charge it, or take it out and replace it, that
is your best bet.

Someone on your street will have a charger
you can use
