Asked by Aug 02, 2014 at 09:16 PM about the 2009 Chrysler 300 C HEMI

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

As described above.

1 Answer


I had a similar issue and the problem turned out to be my key. The transponder in the key had broken off and was rattling around. All the other components, lights, radio, etc. continued to work. Can you try another key? Maybe take the key to the dealer and ask them to check it or get another key programmed by them.
