Question about 2000 Dodge Intrepid
I recently purchased a 2000 Dodge Intrepid in very good condition. After having it for about two weeks, I went to start the car and it failed. The battery was working just fine, and you could hear the fuel injector buzzing. However,despite this the engine would not turn over.
The following day, the car worked just fine, with no problems relating to the engine or otherwise potentially related. Since then, this has happened twice, each time the car starting and running just fine after about 24-48 hours of letting it sit after discovering it would not start.
We believe it has something to do with an Anti-Theft feature that we may not know about or some programming related to trying to start the car with the emergency brake engaged.
Before getting into a bunch of electronic nightmares, remove and clean both battery terminals & cable ends. (use a small knife & or rough sandpaper. Additionally, make sure the other ends of cables are clean and tight at their connections. nothing in your electrical system will function properly without a good connection at the battery.
