Hello,

The first thing I would do is scan the computer for codes to see what comes up.

https://www.2carpros.com/articles/checking-a-service-engine-soon-or-check-engine-light-on-or-flashing

If no codes come up the next place I would go is the auto shut down relay.

Here is a guide and wiring diagrams so you can do some testing.

Please run some tests and get back to us so we can continue helping you.

Best, Ken

If it's not a security issue see below:

**No crank at all/nothing/nada when key is engage to starting position

Could be the starter, starter relay, park and neutral switch/transmission position switch and ignition switch assuming the battery condition and connections are good. Note:If it doesn't apply disregard.

First thing, check the engine oil (correct as needed).
Try jump starting the car (just to see if it will turn over, this will help to see if the engine is locked up).
If your battery and starter are in good shape (or jump starting doesn't work) try using a socket and breaker bar on the center bolt of the crankshaft pulley) to turn the engine by hand [you should be able to turn the engine two revolutions in each direction] again this is done to check to see if the engine is locked up.

Dear Sir, I have a 2005 chrysler 300c Hemi and the AC Evaporator leaks gas, so the dash panel was removed in order to remove the evaporator and after the evaporator was replaced, the dash panel was reinstalled and when I tried to start the car it could not start, it turns and all the lights come up but it does not start nor crank. What will be the cause?

Now all the lights come on the dash but there is no sign of the starter trying to engage or turn over. There is a buzz under the dash.

But now all that happens is the engine lights come on on the dash and it makes not attempt to start. Will a fuel sensor cause this to happen? If so where do Iook?

Let me ask you-Is it cranking over and will not start or just won't do anything when you turn key to starting position?

Driving down the road then the rpm went high then car died and now it will not start and I have 9 codes p0016 p0113 p0222 p0223 p0344 p0340 p2111 p2172. I am thinking it is the throttle body.

If all these codes came on at once, I think it is something other than the throttle body. To me, it sounds like an electrical issue. Have you checked body grounds to make sure they are clean and tight? Also, make sure connections at the TB are clean and tight.

Hey GABRIEL,

Its also sounds like it could be the computer itself they had problems with those in that car, but you might what to check for a shorted injector which will do the same thing, here is a guide to help you.

https://www.2carpros.com/articles/how-to-test-a-fuel-injector

The system ground all be at the intake manifold and the engine block near the starter.

Let me know what you find.

Best, Ken
