Question about 2001 Dodge Intrepid

1 Answer

Won't turn over 2

Thanks for the tips. Won't turn over in any gear (R, D, 3 & L) and now I only get a click sound when I release the key in P or N.
The Autozone I called will check the starter on the bench...not on the vehicle...no repair shop...I'd much prefer getting it started somehow and drive it somewhere for repairs...not paying for a tow...

    Thanks again...however I don't look forward to getting to that battery...any tips or tips would be appreciated...manual says to turn wheel to far right (since I can't start the car, is that ok to do with no power steering?) and remove the panel in wheel well...read a post from a guy who said he also pulled the headlamp and the air cleaner to worm it out through the wheel well! I would prefer to get at the battery post/cables from the top if possible. I'm concerned I might break something on the air cleaner since it seems like plastic and I don't really know what's holding it in place...plus would I have to figure out how to remove the headlamp too and would I have to know how to re -align it? Can you get at everything just through the wheel well?
    I like your suggestion to jump it right off the cables... If you think an automotive dummy could it, I might give it a go.

I assume you can't pull the starter and get it checked. There's a trick to make sure that it' not your battery. Jump start the car but hook the jumper cables directly to the battery cables while they are off the battery, if the car starts you know it's the battery

    Yes anyone can do it , just be sure that you hook red to positive on both cars and black to negative. do not let the battery or jumper cable ends contact other metal so you dont blow fusable link or computers

Security light flashes and won't start 02 lincoln ls


How old & what condition is the battery,on an LS
they only seen to last 4.5 years

Try only one Ford- approved PATS key that is programmed & you know has been working & nothing else nearby, such as a key chain
with other objects


Does the LED indicator flash rapidly or glow steady for 3 seconds,
with key in Run or Start ,if so, you got problems & will need a scan tool to get the codes,not a code reader.


Does the starter turn over the motor?


Need at least 2 keys programmed to system


You got at least 7 fuses to check on 2 of the 3
junction blocks (fuses)

Ignition switch won't release key when it is put in park. But when I removed switch and key tumbler, the key tumbler/cylinder releases key. Why won't the key release when it is in park?


Most newer models have a safety feature called
shift interlock. This prevents the key from being turned back
to the lock position if you forget to place the gear selector in park.
Depending on the model,
If it uses a cable, it may be sticking or needs adjusting.
If it uses an electrical solenoid. may be blown fuse or park switch.
Tap, shake, and pull up on the shifter and make sure it's in park.

My 2005 caravan won't start. When I turn the key I hear a clicking sound but it doesn't start. It worked fine earliar today.The battery is fine for now.


Possible causes are: 1. Loose or corroded battery cables. 2. Bad starter 3. Dead battery. Try tapping on the starter with a hammer while someone is holding the key in the start position. If it starts then replace the starter. Thanks

Can't turn key all the way on 1996 Toyota Camry.


Is your steering wheel locked? Turn the key as much as you can, then turn the steering wheel and see if it releases the lock. You should be able to completely turn the key after this.
