2000 Chrysler 300m not cranking
I have a 2000 Chrysler 300m. My battery died. So I
replaced the battery. But now when I turn the key I
hear nothing. My battery, starter, alternator,
starter relay is good. But also my horn and stereo
don't work. I don't know have a remote for the
factory alarm? It didn't come with the car when I
purchased it. So, now I'm frustrated with this car.
Need help don't know what else to do
is there any lights coming on on the dash when you turn the key?
Yes there is lights that come on but when I turn the key I hear nothing. I bought car in February and it's been sitting over a month because of this. Had mechanics look and put out slot of money to still be stuck.
Lights on dash, no horn, no radio, when he did something in fuse box it cranked but didn't start. So I don't know if it's alarm, fuel pump? But than Im puzzled to the horn and radio all at same time
im not positive as im not there but im willing to bet there is a fuse issue and or a security issue as you changed/ unhooked the battery.
also take the battery out and take it to autozone or wherever and make sure its actually charged ...you might have bought a battery with a low charge.
I tried the battery bought two. I can't find the factory alarm on car because I bought used with no fob. I checked fuses inside car they all look good. But unsure how to check relay. I have two different mechanics check my fuses under hood. But was told they are good.
im willing to bet there are fuses under the dash that are hiding. if not then you need to get your hands on a fob you can probably get one off ebay and program it yourself. they normally coe with instructions. http://www.ebay.com/itm/OEM-CHRYSLER-DODGE-KEYLESS- ENTRY-REMOTE-KEY-FOB-TRANSMITTER-CONTROL- 04602268-/111111712970? fits=Year%3A2000%7CModel%3A300M&hash=item19dec630ca: g:u9EAAOxyY3ZR0zjM&vxp=mtr that ones 8 bucks.

it does say you will need a dealer to program it.
Do you know if there is a way to find alarm on car to unplug it or disarm it
not typically as it was factory installed.
you might be able to have another one added to it to bypass it but thats about all.
Thanks I will try
You have a bad alternator if you hve a new battery n the car doesn't turn over but only hear a clicking sound. My lady's car did the same exact thing. Alternator drained the battery constantly, then it was dead. Bought a new alternator, car fired right up.
