Question about 2005 Chrysler 300

1 Answer

My gear shift is broken and I've been leaving my car in neutral as a result of this! Today when I tried to start it, it started clicking as if there's no fire from the battery! I tested the battery with jumper cables to see if there was a spark and there was, but barely! Is my battery dead and if so, how much does it cost to replace it? I also tried jumping it off and it continued to make the same clicking noise!

If it will not jump, the problem is probably the solenoid. Run test 2 of the following post to be sure it's the solenoid and not the starter relay. If the starter cranks in test 2, replace the starter relay.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6222268-engine_doesnt_crank_turn_over . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

Check to see if the car has oil in it. Open the hood and check your oil dipstick. Lack of oil could cause the vehicle to seize.
Look on the dashboard for a security or key-shaped light. This light represents the immobilizer, which allows the car to run only if the correct key is inserted. If this light is present, there could be a problem with the immobilizer or the key. Use a spare key or get another key from the dealer.
Put the gear shifter in neutral and try to start the car. If the vehicle turns over, the safety neutral shift could be bad. The neutral safety shift allows the vehicle to start when in neutral or park. If the vehicle turns over in neutral but not in park, the switch could be bad.
Turn the car key in the ignition to see if it cranks. If it does not crank, go to step six. If it cranks but does not start, then the problem is either spark or fuel. This means it is not getting gas, which could be the result of a faulty fuel pump or clogged fuel filter, or spark, which could result from problems in the ignition system, such as bad spark plugs, bad wires or a bad distributor cap, rotor or ignition module. If it is an electronic ignition and there is no distributor cap, the coil pack could be bad.
Turn the car key again and listen for the fuel pump to come on. You should hear the fuel pump build up pressure. If not, you might need a new fuel pump.
Put the car firmly in park. Turn the key in the ignition and if there is no crank, the electronic key pad in the ignition could be bad.
Turn the key and listen for a loud click. If you hear a click, the starter solenoid, starter cable or starter could be bad.

My 1997 Chevy Cavalier automatic transmission is stuck in neutral and the shifter just glides from park, won't engage in any gears.


If the shift handle moves extremely freely (more than normal), changes are that the shift cable has become disconnected from the shift lever. This would explain the indicator not moving out of neutral.
You will need to access the shift lever by removing the console cover. Once you access the shifter check the cable connection to the level. If the cable is broken, it will need replacement. If the cable clip has broken or fallen off, it will need to be reattached.

There is a switch on the side of the trans called a neutral safety switch. It only allows starting in park or neutral. the switch probably needs replacing. The next time you have a problem starting, try shifting to neutral to see if it will start. To do so, leave the key in the on position, apply the e-brake and shift into neutral.

Dead key all lights are ok carwont start no click click click


try starting it in neutral. sometimes the neutral safety switch thinks you are just outside of park (aka in reverse). this switch will not allow the car to start in any gear except park and neutral. also, try shifting firmly in and out of park several times. this may trip the switch. good luck

Sounds like the shifter linkage needs adjusted. There is a neutral saftey switch that prevents the car from being started in any foward or reverse gear. If the shifter linkage is out of adjustment, the neutral safety switch will give you starting problems.
