Q: 2007 Dodge Charger wont start changed relays key switch acuator new starter nothing dash lights up radio light goes out when tryin

asked by on

Won't start dash lights up with key on, turn key to start, radio light goes out nothing happened.Same problem last year changed key switch actuator and starter relay which was the problem.Have plenty of power, so I changed starter still nothing. Unhooked positive cable and ground cable, still nothing.

My car has 157000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Check for power to the starter solenoid. Also, check to be sure the heavy gauge cable to the starter motor is intact and shows no voltage drop from the battery to the starter. If you do not detect battery voltage at the starter solenoid, or a large voltage drop is measured, then the electrical circuit supplying the starter motor has a fault. The circuit that will have to be tested begins at the battery and includes grounds, all circuit wiring, fuses, relays, the ignition switch, neutral start switch, and terminations. To test the entire starting circuit, you basically have to perform a methodical circuit trace but if you do that you will definitely find the interruption.
