This is a common problem in many of the Chrysler model cars. I would suggest taking it to the dealer to have the security system reset. The fact that this happened when turning on the defrost suggests a potential short in the system. If you’d like a second opinion on this, I would recommend having a certified expert, like from Your Mechanic, come to your home to diagnose the starting issue firsthand for an accurate repair.
