Hi there

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.

My 2004 300M the sun roof pops open from time to time for no reason. Then the close button will not close have use the open button to close it.

There may be a sensor that tells the motor there is an obstruction - the system may think someone's hand is caught.
You may need a dealer or body shop for this.

Where is the security system fuse located for a 1999 chrysler 300M security system is not letting us start the car

You might have a bad PCM. A trip to the dealer would figure this out. Are you using original keys or copies? You'll need original keys with the chip inside so the SKIM recognizes the key and starts the car. If the car started, then shut off after a few seconds, this is most likely your problem. If if just doesn't crank or start at all, you may have another problem.

2004 chrysler 300M when I first start it up it has a ticking noise then it goes away what is it.

I have a 2004 Chrysler 300M that makes the ticking noise when first started . . . if you turn the heater control to completely off the noise stops . . .leave it off for about 3 to 5 minutes and then turn it on and it will be gone. . . my chrysler dealer repair service manager can't understand it and didn't believe me when I told him. They tried to tell me it was my motor mounts. My 18 year old daughter figured it out. go figure!!!

p0700 indicates you have trans fault present..p1776 is a trans fault which means solenoid switch valve is latched in low/reverse position..solenoid switch valve is located in valve body of transmission,but for 2001-2004 LH vehicles you need transmission event data read to find out what TRS position the fault set..recommend chrysler dealer for this fault..also build code on solenoid pack in trans must be checked..if in a certain build code range,you replace solenoid pack..not the valve body..valve body must be removed to check build code on solenoid pack..i have seen this problem before..i am a dealer technician, and had one of these fault codes last week and solenoid pack was the problem..solenoid pack is about 375 time with diagnostics was about 3 hours..
