Question about 2005 Chrysler Crossfire

1 Answer

I have a problem with my 2005 Crossfire not starting after sitting for a couple of days. I don't drive it every day and it may sit for any where from 7-12 days at a time. But when I go to start it, it's deader than a door nail. Installed a new battery a couple of months ago and have had that checked out twice by a Chrysler Dealership and by Battery Mart, the fairly new battery is charging fine. I'm getting so I'm afraid to drive it at all, due to being afraid of it leaving me stuck some where?????? Please, any one have any answers? Chrysler Dealership wants me to leave it there in their parking until it acts up again, but I really don't want to go that route.

    Yep, finally found the problem with my 2005 Chrysler Crossfire. It was not the dealership I purchased the car from either. I ran it over to a Mercedes dealership and they found the problem, just like the other post said it was a relay. Since that was done, I have had no further problems. But it did the same thing left me sitting along side the road due to cutting out on me! That's when I finally said the heck with Chrysler and took it to Mercedes!!!

New cars have a lot of things running in the back ground, you can hook and AMP meter on the battery and see how much it pulls just sitting there, then one by one unplug fuses and see if maybe a relay has welded its self closed and drawing more current then it should in the off postion. if possible hook a battery tender to your car and plug it in, it will keep a small amount of current going to the battery and should keep the battery charged.

SOURCE: '04 Chrysler Pacifica battery won't hold a charge

First try to understand if there is a parasitic drain.

Once you exclude the drain, replace the battery, a battery with shorted cells can cause the drain.

The firmware has nothing to do with drainage, unless the unit is factory defective.

To measure drainage remove ignition key, connect the amp meter between the battery positive wire connector and positive terminal.A couple of milliamps drainage is normal, and is caused by instruments, car stereo memory, ECU etc.
Start removing more fuses , and open the wiring at different points , trying to locate the problem.
Remove the fuses and see if you have drain by connecting a meter to read amps on battery, if you have drain with no fuse, then the problem is insulated to wiring harness before the fuse, with something shorted between the battery and the fuseblock.
Also check car stereo and car amp HU, the HU can keep a unit on when the ignition key is off, causing drain.

SOURCE: 2004 Chrysler Crossfire- will not start

I had the same problem with my 2005 and I had it in and out of the dealership. After about 4 times of taking it in they found that it was a relay in the ignition system. I had problems with the car dieing as I was driving. I also had issues withe the car not starting after I got somewhere. When you try to start the car the lights and everything would come on but the engine would not turn over or make any noise at all. For me this was all under the factory warranty.
