Question about 2005 Chrysler 300 Touring

Open Question

Lighting Bolt/ ESP BAss light came on Chrysler 300 2005

The car jerks and the power is not as great. Eventually it starts makeing a rubbing noise and then I would have to stop the car, turn off the ignition and start it back up again. The Electronic throttle control has been replaced and it is still doing the same thing.

SOURCE: car alarm preventing car from starting

Try removing the alarm system relay, some car alarm has also a fuse on the alarm that you can remove.
Many car alarms unlock by inserting and turning car key while you connect the battery.

SOURCE: car won't crank & makes a clicking noise when ignition is turned.

Is this the original battery? Have u had it tested? The no crank, clicking noise is classic dead battery symptoms, lights can still work, but not enough power to turn engine over. If it's the original battery, it's at the end of it's life cycle, and should be replaced. U can get the battery tested for free at any parts store.

If it's on turning, it sounds like the power steering pump. Could also be your belts (power steering & and/or accessory) need changing

Dear dodmoir,

Ok, if the actuator is faulty, and the dealer can confirm this, then you will need to source the part yourself and fit it if you wish to go down this route, or take it to an approved garage and get them to do this. Which one? Good, im glad you have stuck about, so we need to find you a replacement actuator; so let me see... urrrmmm... here is a place and its good old ebay

check it out, and this is the replacement part you will need if the dealer reckons it is this.

I would also get the cars ECU (computer) checked out, as what this enables is a full list and breakdown of all potential faults within the engine to be identified. This is quite costly to do at some places, but if you shop around your local area you should be able to find a competitive quote.

This forum I have found, seems to yield information that is well worth checking out, and it does sound to me like this is a generic fault with this make and model of car

Please do keep in contact, and I will do more digging around on this one, and will let you know when more surfaces

Hope to hear from you soon

Yours sincerely

ESP/BAS light is on and also a red lighting bolt symbol on a 2005 Chrysler 300?

There may be an intermittent vacuum leak.

Inspect the intake manifold, power brake booster, and PCV system for any vacuum leaks.
Inspect the throttle-plate. If the throttle blade is bent or will not close, see if it will straighten using long-nosed pliers, otherwise the throttle body may need to be replaced.
Inspect the MAP Sensor and Throttle Body for damaged seals & gaskets.
Inspect the engine for any mechanical conditions that can cause improper engine vacuum, such as leaking/damaged seals & gaskets, coolant/water ingress.
Make sure there are no loose or missing bolts or blanking plates or cut or damaged hoses in and around the air/fuel intake system, which could cause the sensor to be triggered.
best of luck

Can u tell me why my 2011 Chrysler 300 won't start. It shows a red lighting bolt. I'm stuck in the dark plz help.

A lightning bolt could refer to the throttle control. It could be starving the engine of fuel. That could be why it won't start.

Is it a good idea to use my esp button on roads when covered with snow?Is the esp button to help me in bad weather/

The ESP button turns off your Electronic Stability Program. When that function is off, your vehicle will not respond as quickly and aggressively to your driving conditions. The ESP system actually applies your brakes just a little bit to specific wheels when you make a hard turn. It helps keep your car under control when you make a sudden swerve or hard, fast turn. You would only really want to turn it off when you want to let the vehicle deliver all the power possible to the wheels. If you are just driving normally, leave the button alone. It is a great safety system. ESP does for ABS what ABS does for standard brakes.

Hello i have a 2005 chrysler 300c hemi and im starting to have this problem. i will start the car and it would crank but not turn over and when it does turn over and start the esp bass light on the dash...

Since your car isn't going anywhere right now, having it scanned won't work but call one of the auto parts stores and ask if they rent scanners so you can do it yourself. They do scans free but you have to bring the car to them.

I have a 2005 chrysler 300 touring edition and while driving a red blinking lightning bolt symbol came on, om the left side of my dash. On the right side a yellow ESB symbol came on. Do you know what this...

the red light means power limited. the yellow ESP light is part of the traction control system.. if you were on slippery ground its a normal thing to happen if the tires spin
