I just had the same problem and it ended up being my battery. It was enough power to turn on the lights raido and everything except to start it. It was a pain in the butt to change it, but at least it's working.

Same thing happened to me this morning! All the lights inside & out worked, it locked and unlocked with no prob, just won't kick over. Wondered if it was the battery.

Joe where is the entry to turn key? I have a 2013 and cannot find any entry. My car was fine all day no slow start then come out to head home and battery had juice like everyone says but wouldn't kick over. Mechanic said it could be the battery but aaa tried to jump it and still nothing. I'm scared of what it could be and I'm a struggling single mom. Please any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks in advance

to those who do not know how to "turn it on" to put the vehicle in Neutral - turn key to "on" position. should be able to move the gear.

Joe is correct its not a battery issue for those still lost. Its has to do with the security system which has been an on going problem with dodge chrysler. I'm sure they are very aware of the issue but refusing to make the proper adjustments to fix it. But any ways turn the car to the on position do not attempt to crank just press the brake move shifter to to Neutral "N" Do not remove your foot off the brake the car might roll lol. But finish turning the key over an there you go your car will crank.
