Hey Judge you forgot to tell him about the corrosion problem.

hey tennisshoes, they need a new battery...if corroded will be apparent and will be taken care of with the new installation...duh?....duh.


I have that problem also, with the windows and stuff. I also had a starting issue but that was due to the system being poorly connected to the power distribution center and a faulty starter. But anyways, back to the windows, radio, etc. I thought it was because I needed a new battery also but I got my battery checked and they said it was fine. So if you ever get the problem fixed, please update. Thanks.

sounds like a parasitic drain...the new battery will be dead-as-a-doornail as well until we figured out that we left the map light on, or the hood courtesy light isn't switching off~...anyways a parasitic drain, because of the description~

I have a Chysler 300 and yesterday was involved in a flood. My back end of car was submerged in water. I changed out the starter and it still wont start. The battery is fine. Any suggestions?

I have the same prob.. But windows and everything works. Just won't stay on or at times it won't turn over. Changed the spark plugs and the thermal stat. Still happening though.

About 1 month ago my 2014 chrysler 300 would not start, it ended up needing a new fuel pump ( under warranty took it to dealership, all good). I went to start it today and it would not start, neighbor jumped started it and it went right over, I drove my daughter to and from work (40 minutes round trip) drove car back into garage and shut it off. Went to turn it back on and again it would not start. Today is Saturday evening so since it is under warranty they will tow it for free to dealership and check it out but stuck now until Monday uggg. This car has only 1900 miles on it and is kept in the garage and not driven a lot (obviously). could it be that the battery is just dead? Why should it be will only 1900 miles on the vehicle and kept in the garage ???
