Question about 2004 Chrysler 300M

1 Answer

Sometimes my 2004 chrysler 300M won't start. It feels like I didn't "hit it" just right when turning the key - like I was in too big of a hurry. (But I'm not sure if it is the car or me) Then when I try to start it, it will turn over but not fire up. The first couple of times it would start by the 3rd try. One time it started up when I turned the wheel to the left. This last time I couldn't get it to start, let it sit for 4 hours and then it fired right up. Don't know what to think????

    check the fuel pressure . found any code?

    The last time that my car did this, i did check for the code - it was po 340 - cam sensor. Took it in and they changed it & crank(?) sensor as well. The mechanic said that they've found that they almost always have to change the crank sensor out about 6 weeks later - so they did it at the same time. Cost less than $300. Haven't had any more problems!

SOURCE: I have a 2001 chrysler 300m that is not starting.

You think it has spark ? You have to be sure it has spark. Take off a spark plug. Then have somebody help you turn the ignition. Ground the spark plug attached to the wire to the engine. Tell them to turn the engine. You should see a blue spark at the end of the spark plug. use gloves to handle the plug. You don't want to get a shock. If you don't see a spark. Something is not right. it is the coil(s) or something else.

SOURCE: 2000 chrysler 300m-ignition will not turn

It sounds like the ignition tumbler and/ or switch needs to be replaced. To avoid all the testing and such, replace both at the same time, since they get the same ware. Otherwise, take it to a good locksmith and let them see if it needs a good lub-ing and some cleaning.You know, ear wax and all that stuff people use keys for! A locksmith might cost you around 75 to 100 bucks per hour/ solution in the mid west. BTW- NEVER keep a lot of keys on your key ring. It's been known to be the cause of MANY ignition switch issues.Instead use a ring that un-clips or breaks away from your big wad of keys.

2004 Honda Odyssey won't start or try to turn


You tried it in neutral but did you take it out of park and force it back into park? Just a suggestion since sometimes the switch that tells it that it is in park needs a bit of a nudge sometimes.

Unlock Instructions ignition for Chrysler 300M


This happened with my 2000 Ford Focus. To Unlock the ignition, put the car key in, and hit it gently with a hammer. The ignition tumbler will lock again when you take out the key, so have a hammer handy if you go somewhere :P.It happened to me on November 7th, the tow truck driver came, did this, and started the with no problems.

I am hoping someone on here can help me with my problem...My check engine light came on my 2003 Chrysler 300 M special edition and also wouldn't start at times for up to 30-45 minutes at a time, and...


Have you had the battery changed since you had the car. Have that checked for a full charge and no dead cells. Always have the air-conditioning completely off when starting the car. The starter takes a lot of amps to turn over and having the AC on doesn't help.

and another reason is the code didn't clear out completely. this tool can help you test the code.

Need to check Battery test indicator to determine if we need to Jump-start battery. On a Chrysler 2004 300M, where is the battery test indicator?


What is the issue

Only Delco Batteries have an indictor eye,
that I'm aware of

That won't have anything at all to do with
jumping it

You use a volt meter

You don't do any testing or use a car that isn't at
12.5 Volts or more

That is your key to when to charge it

You never jump a dead battery unless
you want to risk getting hurt

We have a 2003 chrysler 300m. Shut car off this morning and now key will not turn ignition switch


You might try turning your steering wheel back and forth and maybe changing your tilt while trying to turn the key. It sounds like your steering wheel lock is stuck which is common. Sometimes it just takes playing with it to get it to turn. Another problem that causes this is the gear selector not being in the right spot causing it not to let the ignition turn. Hope this helps and good luck!

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!!!
