Question about Dodge Charger

1 Answer

Ignition starter switch

I have an 08 dodge charger. A few days ago my engine light came on for 2 days then it went away. About 4 days later my car wouldnt start. I have been noticing a delay in starting for about a year, but was told that is normal. My ehadlights come on and I can hear the ding noise. Doors lock and unlcok trunk opens, but windows do not roll down and none of my gauges work no lights in my dash. Cannot take out of park. Does not even crank, makes no noise when I try to start. I tried switching starter relay around and it didnt work. Do i need to buy new? Please help!

SOURCE: Engine will not crank intermitantly

Crank sensor can translate heat. Not allowing restart after the turbo heat radiates in the area. Try a wad of aluminum foil in front of the crank sensor(on the block behind the turbo) . It protects it from heat and its a cheep test. If this works you can make a better sheild or leave the foil.

SOURCE: Engine won't start. Dash lights flash rapidly when key turned.

the battery says 12 volts but may be dropping to 4 or 5 under a load...i would suggest jumpstarting the car and see what happens.the battery should read in the high 12 volts and not less than 9.5 under cranking. the dash lights go out on your car when starting,and the alarm will go off ,and disable the ignition if the voltage is too low in cranking the car because the computer will shut it down and activate the anti theft.....check your battery posts are tight. best of luck

SOURCE: Engine won't crank, module problem?

Check for a loose connection on your ignition switch. I have had similar problems with my 93 Passat.

SOURCE: 2000 Buick Century wont start, new ignition

Make sure all the fuses are good. Check the fuse panel inside the car and the fuse box under the hood. Find the starter relay and swap it with another one and see if the starter works. If that didn't make any difference, try this:Make sure the transmission is in park, emergency brake on. Turn the ignition key on. Find where the positive battery cable is attached to the starter. Attach one end of a jumper cable to the connection. Take the other end of the jumper cable and ground it against the starter solenoid where the wires are connected. This should start the car, or at least make the starter work.If the car starts but won't stay running, then it is probably the security system at fault. If you went to a dealership for the new switch and keys, you probably paid quite a bit for it.There is a cheaper way to fix it, and it will last forever. It's a bypass system from a company called New Rockies. I think you should check out this website: http://newrockies.ca/vatsbypass.

The malfunction indicator light came on about a month ago in my Suzuki Alto (2005) and I took it to the garage and was told there was a misfire in cylinder 2. I was told it was fine so they reset the light...


If the code has been a misfire in the same cylinder every time, the problem is very likely the ignition coil for that cylinder. When the ignition coil first starts to go, the malfunctions will be sporadic and therefore difficult to troubleshoot. The ignition coil can be tested for resistance on both primary and secondary windings in the coil to prove it is failing.

When it will not crank, a mechanic would check for voltage at the starter, the clutch safety switch, and the key switch.

it takes 10 minutes for it to go out. it's not so much a problem with your ignition as it is with the Passlock 2 system. go to passlock2.com and should be able to find your solution there.

find the starter or ignition relay and replace it... generally either on the fuse panel inside the car or the fuse panel located in the engine compartment.
