what year charger do you have, does it crank over

Keshelia Calcote

It is a 2008 ... And no, it does not.


when you turn the key on take note of the lights, after the cluster does a bulb check does the skim light stay on, if so try this, disconnect the battery foe 5 minutes, reconnect and try to start, if starts it might need a skim module.

When I turn the key, one light flashes on very quickly but it's hard to tell what it is. Other than that, no other lights come on at all.


is it a red light about 1/8 inch in diameter?


My 2006 Dodge charger would stat for about 3 seconds then it would cut off light about 1/8 of an inch in diameter on the dashboard comes on next to the check engine light what should I do

check your VIN against a possible recall. 2008 dodge chargers have a recall on ignition switch and drivers airbag
