Question about 2008 Dodge Charger

1 Answer

I have a 2008 Dodge Charge R/T. When I try turning on the ignition, I get dash lights and the usual warning lamps/power, etc., but the engine won't start when turned full? I have to reinsert the key 2-4 times and eventually it fires up. Does any one know what the problem is?

Sounds like dirty battery cables. Clean top & BOTTOMS!!! Everyone ignores the bottoms and they're exposed to grease, grime...etc. If they're dirty or corroded they form resistance that doesn't allow enough power to starter. You hit the key multiple times, cable heats up, expands makes better contact. I'd start there.

Fuses ok,light in dash tested and works. But check engine light does not come on when you turn on the ignition. What else should I check? This is a ford ranger XLT 4x4 4.0L V6-245cid engine (pushrod)


The instrument cluster (10849) carries out a display proveout to verify that all warning/indicator lamps and monitored systems are functioning correctly. When the ignition switch (11572) is in the ON position with the engine (6007) off, the following indicators will illuminate:
  • CHECK ENGINE/malfunction indicator lamp (MIL).
  • CHECK GAGE warning indicator.
  • Charge system warning indicator.
  • Anti-lock brake warning indicator (ABS).
  • Safety belt warning indicator (60second proveout).
  • Air bag indicator.
  • An indicator is inoperative - CHECK ENGINE/malfunction indicator lamp (MIL)
  • Bulb.
  • Circuitry.
  • Instrument cluster printed circuit.
  • Powertrain control module (PCM) (12A650).

Alt. and brake liht on dash


the alt glows, when the charge system fails.
belt feel off? or engine RPM way below 800rpm hot?

the brake lamp comes on for every key on, for self test.
and at each engine stall. this is NORMAL.
the brake lamp warning glows usually for 4 reaons.
1: hand brake stuck on, or its switch.
2: low brake fuild.
3: front or rear brakes have failed (the balance switch)
4: ABS if fitted, is having , well Fits.

Starting Problem


Have you checked the alternator? Check engine light on? Every vehicle is different but if the charge system isnt functioning or wearing out, certain accessories that have a high drain will not function as a warning sign that the charge system is failing. Were their other warning signs that you might have missed? Low power to dash lights or even head lights.... stereo resetting? My guess would be coil pack or alternator

Car will not start when ignition key is turned. All warning lamps light up, enginee doesn't even try to start even with the clutch depressed


1. So the car was running normally and then on one occasion you put in the key to start it and all the warning lights flash up on the dash and the starter motor will not turn the engine over. Is that correct.

2. When you last drove the car were any warning lights appearing on the dash.such as check engine warning, engine overheating, electrical charging warnings etc.\

3. Has any work been carried out on the car recently.

4. How old is the battery in the car.

MY PLYMOUTH GRAND VOYAGER 'S HEADLIGHT'S AND DASH LIGHTS WORK, BUT THE ENGINE WON'T TURN OVER. THERE IS NO SPARK COMING FROM THE ELECTRICAL WIRES.


When you say no spark, are you talking about the spark plugs, or just the general wiring?

If the engine won't turn over, then it isn't moving, and if it isn't moving then you need to check the following in this order:

1) Does the battery have power i.e. around 12.4 volts or over?No? Charge, test or replace battery.

2) Do the car's head lights dim considerably if turned on when attempting to crank? Yes? Possible lack of battery charge or faulty battery.

3) Assuming the battery is fine, can you turn the dash warning lights on and off with the key? No? Faulty ignition switch.

4) Is there a click sound when you turn the key, but no starter motor spin? Check starter motor connections or replace starter motor.


If none of the above prove to be of help, then please report.

2012 cbr 1000 check engine light 2 slow 3 fsst


warning lamp some used for warn low oil pressure, etc.
Wtith the bulbs use for most warning light circuit it is hard to determine whether or not the filamente is good. Will be a good idea to replace the bulb.
For test the faulty warning lamp, turn the ignition switch to START, this light the warning lamp. I f the light does not come on , disconnect the sender switch lead. . Use a jumper wier to connect the sender witch lead to ground. With the ignition in RUN the warning lamp should light. If the lamp is illuminated replace the sending switch. If the light does not come on,either the bulb is burned our or the wiring is damaged.Use test light for confirm voltage is present at the sensor terminal connector. If there the bulb is bad.
God bless you
