Hi I own a 2008 Dodge Caliber. It would not start . The lights were very strong and horn worked. The power locks would. My husband was told to take battery ground cable off and let it sit for 1 minute to...
That's baloney (?bologna?) with the negative cable re-setting.
First, let me ask by not start, do you mean it cranks and won't start, or it won't even crank the engine over?
If it cranks and won't start, suspect a gas or spark problem. Check the fuel pressure and the injector circuit for a fuel problem, then check the ignition circuit for a spark problem.
If it won't even crank the engine over, it could be a wiring problem going to the starter, or it could be a bad starter motor or starter solenoid (that is attached to the starter). After all, the starter that is in the car is now 9 years old (if never changed), and that could be the problem. Usually they give some hints when they begin to go bad, like slow acting, but not always.
