Car will not make a sound when I turn the key

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2008 Dodge Charger and all the interior lights on the dash broad will not come on.
The headlights and the horn works. The car will not turn over. It just makes that beeping
sound when I turn the key.

First thing I would check is if your battery has enough charge. How old is it? If you have a volt/multimeter probe it, what is the voltage? Should be around 12.3V You can also remove the battery and take it to your local auto parts store and they will check it for free.


I just had the same problem .... I thought it was the battery so I got it changed it wasn't .... Believe it or not it was my key!! ... The sensor in my key died so it wud not start the car or light up my dash board when I put the key in ... Only the noise wud come on .... So u 100% need a new key it's gonna run u about $350 at dodge but I went to a lock smith he did it for $180

I had the same problem 2 days ago. I had the beeping sound and the lights would come on and I could not get the gears to move. But when I turned the key to on, it did nothing. In my case the WIN modular was loose and It needed to replaced. It costed me 346.00 in labor and FYI, Now the WIN modular comes with the key. that costed 410.00. My car will be ready in 1 to 2 days from today. Its all well worth it. O one more thing, if your tires locked make sure that the tow guy knows how to unlock the tires. the last thing you need is for some person go under your hood or even worse brake something in your car.
