I have a 2009 dodge charger that all of a sudden will not start. The lights and everything work but it won't start. There is a round light that comes on under the gas gauge on the dash when the key is in the ignition. Does any one know how to get the car started or what the problem is?

...well assuming that your battery is okay and can survive a "load test" the connections are important...the main ground 1/0 cable connection battery to frame/ground must not be full of carbon and corrosion...grab a coarse wire brush and brush the mating surfaces here and the motor near the alternator...these all need three hundred cold cranking amp capability~ this ground is the same ground that your ECM uses....we cannot have varying voltages and varying amperages at the source of the brain of the system...clean the electrical connections will put you right~

having removed and replaced the main ground you will have in effect reset ALL codes non recurring~
