Question about 2005 Chrysler Crossfire
Periodically the car won't start. full tank, half, doesn't matter. can hear the fuel pump engage when starting. help? On four occasions during the past month, my 2005 Crossfire Roadster has refused to start. All of the electricals work, but the engine will not turn over. After 20-30 minutes, the engine starts normally. On two of the four occasions, I have stopped in a parking lot, run into a store and when I came out the engine would not start. On two occasions, the engine has stopped running at low speed and then the engine will not restart. Again, after 20-30 minutes the engine restarts. This is the 3rd time my Crossfire has been in the shop for the same problem.The stalling engine is always so spuratic you never know when it will hapen. First time it just wouldn't start from a sitting position.Electrical would work just would not turn over. They claim that was the ignition switch. A week later it stalled again at the drive through at the bank and would not restart.That they say was a module. A week later once again at an intersection.An hour later it restarted. This time they can't seem to figure out whats wrong.I have called customer service, the tech's are involved. I'n the last 2 months I have had my crossfire one week.
This sounds like one of those interesting problems. What you are going to have to do is find a light bulb type of electrical tester, and a schematic for the wiring on the car (or get a mechanic to do it). When the problem comes up again, you have to find where the power to the module is not coming through a weak connection. It is something that warms up and then breaks connection.
The first thing to do is change the fuses for the engine controls. Fuses are cheap and sometimes they develop a crack that opens when they see a rise in temperature from a heavy electrical load or warm or cold weather changes. Other things that cause problems are the wires that connect to the battery, and splices in those wires which are usually hidden inside a bundle of wires. Also inspect the connectors that hook up to the engine module and make sure the pins are not pulling out from tension in the wires and other defects.
You said it doesn't turn over, so also check the connections at the starter. Sometimes main power is routed through there.

I had the exact same problem with my 2004 Crossfire. I'm trying to find my service receipt to inform you of what I got repaired. Whatever they fixed cost me about $745. It fixed the problem.

All of this happened on my 2004 Crossfire I bought a code scanner and found the crankshaft position sensor fail code replaced the sensor and no problems since this is a common post here and a common problem with the 2004 Crossfire check the other posts with this same problem to see where the sensor is and how to replace it.

I do not have a solution - just a similar complaint. I have a new battery and my husband has replaced all of the parts that supposedly cause this 'mystery no start' problem and I am still dealing with this problem at odd times for no reason. I like the look of the Crossfire, but hate the unreliability. I am turning it in and will never buy another Chrysler (I have owned Chryslers for the past twenty years).
