It has the 2.7, 6 cyl. The car will rotate but will not start. It has an aftermarket security system and keyless entry with power locks. I replaced the crank and cam sensors, battery and fuel pump. There is fuel pressure and I get a spark. It seems that all relays and fuses are fine and working. Could there be any other sensor that would affect the car starting?. I am scratching my head on this one. Please HELP.

Re: 2000 Chrysler Concorde
These engines are known for the water pumps and/or the timing chains hydraulic tensioner failing and causing the timing to jump time. And checking the timing on these engine is not easy unless you can get a scan tool that can tell you if the cam and crank are in sync. If it says out of sync it has most likely jump time.
a 6ya Mechanic can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

When you replace the batteries in a key fob (or if the car randomly "un-syncs" with fob) you usually have to reprogram (kind of a sync) the fob to the car. Each manufacturer is different and usually involves turning the key over a certain number of times ( like 8) then operating the fob in a certain way like holding the lock button down for three or so seconds. I found out how to do mine on YouTube. You can search there for your specific re-syncing format or call a local Chrysler dealer
Typically dealers are the only people who can work with the security systems on cars. If it is a factory security system, calling a dealer would be your best option. If it is aftermarket, call the company that installed it. If you have a mechanic you trust, you are free to ask them for advice, but typically mechanics will refer you to a dealer for security system issues.
Is this an issue with all 2008 HHR remotes??? Highly doubtful , probably the vehicles keyless entry system . Taking the vehicle to a qualified repair shop an having the keyless entry system checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's . Do you know what a DTC is ?
The keyless entry system is a vehicle entry device. The keyless entry system is used in conjunction with the body control module (BCM) to remotely activate certain vehicle features. Keyless entry will lock/unlock the doors, or release the rear compartment lid when a corresponding button on the keyless entry transmitter is pressed. This is accomplished by the transmitter sending a radio frequency to the remote control door lock receiver (RCDLR). The RCDLR interprets the signal and activates the requested function via a serial data message to the BCM. A low transmitter or vehicle battery or radio frequency (RF) interference from aftermarket devices, such as 2-way radios, power inverters, computers, etc., may cause a system malfunction. High RF traffic areas may also cause interference that could lead to a malfunction. Keyless entry allows you to operate the following components:
• Door locks
• Liftgate lock
• Remote rear doors (Panel only)
• Vehicle locator/panic alarm
• Illuminated entry lamps
• Remote vehicle start
The keyless entry system has the following components:
• Keyless entry transmitters
• Keyless entry antenna
• 2 Way Advanced Remote Start RCDLR
The is no factory wire on a focus that will do that. It might be an aftermarket radio, alarm, keyless entry system that was poorly installed by previous owner and now shorted out. A fuse may be blown as well. If an aftermarket security system, it may be preventing the car from starting until everything is back in place (or completely removed).
Opening the drivers door with the key is supposed to shut down the factory security but the drivers key cylinder usually goes bad. You will have to unlock the rear tail gate lock cylinder with the key and that will shut down the factory security, before opening the drivers door.Your other option is to have an aftermarket keyless entry system installed, which will open the doors remotely while shut down the factory security at the same time.
Before replacing any Relay. Try disconnecting the negative side of the battery for at least 2-minutes to de-energize the security system, re-setting itself. The reconnect the battery and try your security (and options) system again.
The only other big question that you will have to know: is this a factory installed security system or an aftermarket security system? This makes a difference in security systems, relays etc.
