Could be the computer, but not likely. The first place to start is checking for diagnostic codes. If you don't have a code reader, you can probably borrow one from Autozone or another parts store. I'd recommend buying one though - they're pretty handy to have and not terribly expensive.Write down the codes, then search for the code number on the internet. How did you check for spark?

You might check this thread, too. But a starter relay doesn't make sense if you're not getting any spark. A relay would be more likely if it's not turning over. http://www.cargurus.com/Cars/Discussion-t32276_ds501179

I had the same problem, 2008 Charger, 3.5, crank, no start. No codes either. Battery good, starter good, relays and fuses all good. What we figured out was under the fuse box. One of the wires had cracked and it wouldn't allow the engine to start. soldered the wire and the car started right up. Pulled my hair out trying to figure out the problem.

08 charger lights comes on when i turn the key but no crank could it be the spark plugs it started smoking when i turned the key for it to start need help

Hey Derek which fuse box was the broken wire under and what was the wire for??

most of the time if you spray either into intake and its starts it is a gas not getting to the the engine problem. if it doesn't start upon doing this , its a fire problem. car not getting a spark. no GAS REACHING THE ENGINE AND IT STARTS WHEN YOU SPRAY EITHER . YOU MAY NEED A FUEL PUMP
