SOURCE: wont start

There's only 2 more things that I can think of, check the fuse for the ignition, then the computor itself, you did everything else.It might be the problem and may not.

SOURCE: 2000 dodge intrepid won't start

If the key is returning to  the 'Run' position as it should, then either a relay controlling the solenoid or the solenoid itself is hanging up. The heavy contacts that send power to the starter can develop rough surfaces that can temporarily weld themselves together causing the starter to run on even though the engine is running and the key has returned to the proper position. There is also a spring that should normally help return the solenoid's contacts to their 'off' position that may be weakened.

SOURCE: Turn key to start - nothing happens

I had same problem w/ my '88 Ram50. Turned out to be bad contacts on the battery cables. Temp fix and test was to put a little screw between the post and the end connector. Didn't have a problem then, so I replaced the cables.

SOURCE: 2008 dodge nitro change oil light how to turn off ...

Directions are in the book, but you would put the key in and turn it all the way, just don't start engine. Pump gas pedal all the way to the floor 3 times slowly, but it has to be with 10 seconds. Turn key off and when you start again, oil changed chime and warning should not be on. If it is, try again.

Car will not start, its not battery, I was told its a fuse, need diagram of fuses to which one affects starting car


Car will not start how ? A crank- no - start or a no crank - no - start < meaning when you turn the key to the start position does anything happen ? Starter engages an spins the engine an doesn't start an run ! Or when you turn the key to start the position nothing happens ? Who told you it was a fuse ? Are there any light's lit on the instrument cluster , SECURITY ? If Nothing happens Find the starter relay an jump pin's 30 & 87 , if nothing is wrong with starter , battery , battery cables it should spin the engine . Is your vehicle automatic transmission or stick ? Automatic has a neutral safety switch , won't let vehicle engine spin unless in park or neutral . Manual has clutch switch , won't let starter engage unless the clutch pedal is pressed . Both of these switches can go bad . There are videos on youtube on basic electrical trouble shooting . Also on testing starter circuit . How to voltage drop test starter motor circuit

I have a 2008 Dodge Nitro and I got in it the other day and all lights and door chimes work, battery is good but it will not even make a noise when I turn over the key. Does any know what the problem


Could be a problem with the anti-theft system, the starter itself, the wires to the starter (they sometimes get loose, and even become unplugged from eng. vibration) Starter relay, neutral switch, there are an awful lot of things it could be. Try to put it into neutral when you start it, (or push very hard on the clutch pedal!) There are too many variables. A battery can do this too. Just because it has 12 volts, it may no longer have amperage available, so your lights would show on, but the starter wouldn\'t do anything

The battery is good but it wont start


It may be the solenoid (electro-magnetic clamp) that engages the starter motor with the flywheel to start the car. Unfortunately, this usually involves replacing the entire starter.

Dodge Durango 2002. Sometimes wont start. No crank. Battery good. Cleaned battery connection. Changed lock mechanism and ignition switch. When I turn key nothing happens but all other electrical items work...


Starter solenoid. It's the switching mechanism on the starter that engages the starter when you turn the key. To test you would need to make sure you're getting power from the ignition wire at the starter when the key is turned(The small wire, not the big one). If it does get power, the solenoid is bad and the starter needs to be changed. If it does not, then it's something between the key and the starter like the starter relay in the fuse box under the hood
