Car wont start

Asked by Jul 22, 2016 at 04:08 PM about the 2008 Chrysler Pacifica Touring AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

If it is a hot day outside and my windows are
closed my car doesn't want to start...if the
windows are opened the car will start. All the lights
and power work in the car. I have already changed
the battery and the ignition and also the starter
twice. Is there some type of sensor or ignition relay
inside the car preventing it from starting when the
inside gets too hot with the windows closed...my
mechanic doesn't know what to do anymore
please help!!!

Something is definitely getting a bad connection when the interior of the vehicle gets hot. First thing I'd check is the fuses. When things heat up they expand. It could be that one of the fuses in the passenger's compartment is losing contact with the terminal in the fuse box. I actually had this happen to me with an '02 Impala. When it was hot out the turn signals went dead. Nothing. After some poking around I discovered that the terminal for the turn signal fuse was damaged. I used a tiny screwdriver and repositioned the terminal and the turn signals never gave me any more trouble. So poke around in your fuse box. Wiggle and jiggle each fuse in there and see if it'll fire up. If so, there you go! HTH. -Jim
