Question about 2004 Chrysler 300M
A common problem: change the fuel filter. It is located high up in the engine bay, usually against the firewall to the cabin. Pinch the fuel pipes, undo the jubilee clips and replace with the right sized fuel filter. No naked flames and undo the negative battery lead before you start.
With a clean run through for the fuel, pump the gas pedal a few times and try to start it. It should do after only a few turns of the crank.
If you mean there is no attempt by the starter to engage upon turning the key, find the starter solenoid. If the terminals are 'furred' up with calcium deposits, clean them up with a wire brush and tap the case with a mallet. This will free up the magnets inside.
If the car is an auto (I assume it is) - make sure the gear is in Park before starting. Check under the gear lever to ensure that the swicth is not broken or frayed. This could be stopping the starter from engaging as the gearbox thinks the car is in Drive, therefore not starting. To make sure Park is selected properly, rock the car, without the ebrake on. Then try and start it. If it does, the sensor is definitely the problem.
I hope this helps, I've tried to cover the main problems which would cause your symptoms.
