2012 dodge charger does not start


Asked by Aug 04, 2016 at 01:45 PM about the 2012 Dodge Charger SE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Ok i need help!! my charger has been running fine really no issues until
now, i was on the freeway and my car felt like it was stalling and i hit the
gas and ran like normal then a few seconds later it felt like it was sputtering
back and forth so i go to pull over to the side and slow down and once i pull
over it turns off. all the lights came on my dash for example like my gas
light which it has a full tank and the check engine light etc. so when i went
to start it it wouldn't turn on it would just click. the starter relay was replaced
the starter was replaced and nothing so now not only does it not start, now
when i hit the push start my dash starts turning white my windshield wipers
go on by themselves and my windows wont go down I've tried a different
battery and nothing as i stated the starter was replaced and the starter
relay as well. i called a mechanic and he stated the engine had no oil which
is odd because when the oil is checked  it shows it has oil still so he stated i
needed a new engine then he goes to say it might be the engine or a
timing chain issue can someone please help im frustrated and dont know
what to do?!??

the mechanic said he tried turning it by hand and its not turning
