Question type: Maintenance & Repair

i have a 2005 startus sxt and it wont start. When turning the key to start the engine it
does nothing. The headlights turn on and so do the cabin lights, but the radio wont turn on
and dash lights wont turn on on the "on" key postion. just the odometer is lit. Any ideas
on a troubleshoot?

you blew a fuse under the hood. look at the #8 fuse (20 amp). If you replace it try starting again. if it blows again, replace it with a 30 amp fuse rock the car back and fourth in neutral and then try to start it. don't know why but it worked on my car.

it has something to do with the tranny locking the gear in the engine and the engine will not turn which puts too much of a load on the starter and blows the fuse.

what if the fuse is not blown

It happened to my 2003 Dodge Stratus R/T and changed the fuse #8 and it started. Then I drove a little bit and it blew. So I went to Advance and bought a 30amp and put it in there. It's working now.
