Re: 2002 dodge intrepid
It is either the drive belt is slipping and needs to be changed if it has been over 40,000miles and make sure the battery posts are clean and if there is any aftermarket accessories make sure there is no bare wires or loose

If your headlights turn on and seem as bright as they should be or you've already checked battery and connections... Then turn ignition switch on depress brake pedal move shifter to neutral then key to start... or hold key in start position and foot on brake and wiggle shifter in and out of Park
probably headlight switch known to be crappy look for melted wires on back of switch also google cherokee forums theres at least 4 or 5 cherokeeforums.com naxja.org, cherokeetalk.com jeeps unlimited.com, jeepgarage.com
Do a quick check on battery, get someone to watch the headlights turn them on and then turn the key to the start position, if the lights go out then your battery is either completely discharged or has gone bad.
It sounds like your main power harness is not connected tightly. Check the wireing and connections from the battery to the starter and then from the starter to the fuse box. Also, the ignition switch on the 2001 intrepids can be faulty enough to cause intermittent power supply problems so its a good idea to run a continuity check on the wires going from your ingnition switch to the fuse box, while performing this type of test, wiggle each wire and if you get a flutter in any one of them then it could mean that the ignition switch connection point for that particular wire is loose or dammaged and in this case simply replacing the switch fixes the problem.
Accessory position is turning key towards he driver. Ignition on is away 1 and start is away2.
Turn on your headlights, do they work? If not, chk batt terminals
If they do, try to crank the engine noting what the headlights do. If they go out, Chk the batt ground cable. If they dim, your batt needs a charge. If they dim and then come back bright when you back off the starter, the starter is bad.
Chk for loose engine to body ground. That would affect the accessories. Good Luck, _Ned_
I too have a 2002 dodge Intrepid, after 10 minutes of driving the car, when i make a stop it won't shift properly, in order to make it shift, i have to turn the ignition off and back up again!
If anyone can help me locate the TCM that would be great.
I'm ready to drive it off a cliff
Thanks in advance!
Have any of you guys checked the battery to see if it is charged enough and holding a charge. To do this check you need to use a voltage tester and the reading should be around 12.4 volts. If not make sure the battery is full with distilled water and then charge the battery.
Next you need to immediatly check to see if the alternator is charging the system adequately. If not replace it before you kill the battery again.
Also clean the terminals on the battery and on the connectors even if they don't look like they need it.
If the battery still dies you may need to replace the battery because it lost its ability to keep an adequate charge.
