I have a 2007 Chrysler 300, when trying to start it, it does turn over but does not actually start up. We know it isn't the battery.
So it was towed to the dealership and they said it started right up for them so there was nothing they could do....
What would cause it to not start for two days, then just start right up? I have seen reviews claiming fuel gauge issues on the 300's...
my car did that once. starter engaged but it just wouldnt turn over. i let it sit for about 2 minutes and then it started right up. havent had an issue since.
I have had the same problem with my 2008 300C - the engine turns over but won't fire. It's now happened to me 3 times, the first time I called the warranty number and they sent out a Chrysler technician who couldn't find any fault so tried pulling fuses, then it started. I took it to the dealer and they said there were a number of minor faults registering on their computer which they cleared. The second time the Chrysler technician again connected his laptop and couldn't find a fault but when he disconnected it and it started, I then took it to the dealer I bought it from and they replaced the crankshaft sensor, saying that was the problem. Yesterday it happened again and I got towed to the same dealer who said that their diagnostics computer said there was a problem with sooting up and the gas analyser and that they had to drive it for 20 miles and reset the system, they also updated the software and are "confident" that it wont happen again. We'll see!
did it happen again since they updated the software and stuff?
check the fuel pump pressure and fuel gauges..they might need a repair or a change. http://chrysler300.org/
No thankfully it hasn't happened since, so I hope its cured because I'm not outwith the warranty period - have you had the same problem?
Yes I have the same problem. If its cold outside the car starts up fine, but when its warm out that's when I have the problem. I'll turn the key and all it does is click. So I would turn the key over and over until the car starts. Most times its about 5 times to finally get it to start. I don't know much about cars but I know its not the starter or the battery. I'm just trying to find out what the problem could be cause I don't have a warranty on the car so whatever I get fixed it will come out of pocket.
It's definitely not the battery but it may be the the starter - I live in Scotland so I've not had to try starting it when its warm outside! Joking aside, my problem was slightly different, mine's didn't just click, the engine actually turned over and would continue to turn over until I let the key go, but the engine would not fire up and run by itself.
i have a chrysler 300c 2007 model diesel auto im having the same problem engine started for a sec and run now it wont start at all starter just clicks foned the dealership who we bought the car off. would not help us at all in reguards to why the engine wont start please could any one give us advice please thank you
it can be very much a fuel gauge issue or the cause can be a faulty fuel pressure pump which fails to pump the right amount of fuel at times causing the issue. http://chrysler300.org/
I have a 2007 300 Touring. It has had a problem starting for a month or more, turning over, but not starting. This seems to only be after it has been sitting for a couple of hours or more. This week it stalled on the interstate, I had it towed, and the shop replaced the fuel pump. It ran great on the drive home, but did the very same thing the next morning. Is it my fuel filter, a sensor, or regulator, and could it have made my fuel pump go out? HELP PLEASE!!!
i am having the same problem with my 2007 limited 300 all the lights, radio, nav, etc work just fine. it wants to start just wont fire, i have took the car to the shop and they cant find anything wrong with the car, she didnt miss a beat the four days it was there, so brought it home and been doing fine for 2weeks and tonight i went to go home and it would not start haaaa please somebody help
Sorry I Can't be more helpful, but since they diagnosed the problem as sooting up and the gas analyser then drove it for 20 miles, reset the systemand updated the software, I've not had a repeat of the problem and that's over a year now, so "touch wood" it's cured.
Eddie_G1 -- I have a Chrysler 300M and it has developed the same start fine in the mornings but after engine warms up and shuts up, it won't fire. I've had all sensors replaced, new spark plugs, air filter, etc. In your fix - what do you mean "a problem with sooting up and the gas analyser". What software did the dealership update? I would be so grateful for a reply since I have had it taken to 4 different mechanics plus dealership.
"A problem with sooting up and gas analyser" is the phrase the dealer used, exactly what they meant by that I can't be certain, but I assumed the sooting up was caused by the fact that the majority of my journeys are short and local. I know diesel engines need to work hard from time to time otherwise they tend to soot-up. They were not any more specific about the gas analyser fault and the software they updated I took to mean the engine control system. Hope this is of some help, but your problem sounds different from mine, since mine just wouldn't start at all - nothing to do with warming up first.
I have a similar issue but a little more strange. My 07 300 would not turn over once the key was engaged to start, it would only start at night or early mornings ( cooler weather). So I pulled out the starter and had it tested, and it was bad. I replaced the starter and at first it seemed fine. A week later, the starter was bad again and now will not start at all. The warranty has expired so I am trying to avoid the dealer for now. Any suggestions/ ideas?
I have a 2007 Chrysler 300 Touring. I'm having a consistency start up problem, sometimes I have to crank it for 2-4 seconds and it starts right up. I want to say that 6 out of 10 times it start right up. *One thing I have noticed is that Every time I pump a full tank on the car, when I turn it on to leave from the gas station it does not start right up I have to crank it for 2-4 seconds. I called the dealer (don’t have warranty) and they told me that they will charge me $135 to take a look at the car and tell me what's wrong. I told them about my visits to the gas station and they told me that I can give them $20 enough to get a full tank on the car and that they will take the car to the gas station to experience the problem and troubleshoot right then in there. I haven't done it because it seems like the dealers are just guessing in most cases or they say that they didn't find anything wrong and we continue with our problem. During this economic crisis I don’t have money to spend on guesses. Does anyone relate to my car's symptoms’?? Any solutions? I hope we find a cure for everyone, such nice cars to be having these problems..
how much did that cost or was it under warranty?
Fortunately for me it was done under warranty.
It won't start right up at all some times I have to give it some minutes to rest then it starts up, it's at the dealership now
2007 Chrysler 300 2.7 Car won't start all I'm getting is a click and when I try to turn lights on they flicker. No crank at all. When I boosted it one time it started without a problem. Tried to boost it again but not starting this time. Seems like something is draining the battery. Mechanic once told me the starter could be stuck in the on position therefore draining battery. Could this be true?
Don't have an answer. I left this afternoon to go put gas in my car, everything was fine, i came back to crank up my car, and the car wouldn't start. i have full power in the car, but it wont start. my neighbor tried to jump it, but to no avail. All i heard was a click noise whenever i turned the ignition.
The cars needs to be recalled i had a 2006 Chrysler 300 AWD 2.7 and i had to sue the dealership to get my money back, i owned the car for 100 days and it was in the shop for 55 out of those 100 days due to this problem, they never found out the problem, and they will not find the issue, we need to file a class action law suit against Chrysler
I have a 2005 Chrysler 300 Limited, and my car started acting up this morning. It will start, but would shut right off. I don't understand what's going on, but it's ashamed all the money we spend to purchase a car that eventually wouldn't start later on!! I think we should start a class action suit on Chrysler for this faulty make of the 300's!! My warranty been went out & the dealership for Chrysler in my area is very expensive.
I have a 300c 2008 chrysler srt.This morning my car started up for 3 sec then into shut down.did that several times,same problem occured.took it to dealers,they think its the whin and e l v unit.which is alomost 900.00 pounds.i just got a call back saying its still not starting up.can anyone help me please!!!
After thinking about it so much not wanting to take my car to the dealership because it was going to be expensive. I been dealing with the start up problem for over 2 years now. I got tired of the issue and finally decided to take the car in to the Chrysler Dealership. They ran a diagnostics for 1 day to tell me that the fuel pump is working fine and that they did not find anything wrong with the car. Here is what the mechanic said "Take it, drive it around and see if it happens again" at the point I got upset and told him that something definitely wrong with the car because I've experienced it for over 2 years, it happens everyday. After they noticed I was upset, they sent a fax to corporate for any suggestions, which took most of the following day because I left it over night. Finally I called them at the end of the day and they told me that corporate suggested a couple of things that it could be however, they were going to charge me to guess which was were I drew the line. I told them try them on the car if it fixes the problem I'll pay with joy otherwise I'm not going to pay for you to guess and they did not accept.. what a surprise. I'm planning to take it to a recommended general mechanic, I'll post any good results if any.
