Re: [Chrysler300] Starting Problem !!!

Neutral safety switch comes to mind . If it happens again you can test that single wire to ground w light or voltmeter  while someone holds key . Should be zero . If you see  12 at attempted crank in park or neutral ( do not move that trans selector yet ) you found it . Check trans connection too , they get beat up . Another way is try again during failure after shifting to park or d and r and back to N . Bumping it like that can fix it temporarily . Switch itself seldom bad but adjustment critcal . See trans info in book .
Also how did you know what terminals to jump ? Can damage stuff doing that -- unless you know . From batt to heavy start wire to solinoid ok . Some of others inc neutral switch are at ground . You can destroy neutral switch if you put 12 on that wire. . 12 on crank term to relay ok if you pull wire off . Tests the start relay . They tend to be yes or no deal . Check all wires at relay ..loose on the tab female stake on can do that too . Also common .

I am wondering if anyone else has had this problem and what your solution was.

This morning I started the62 300 sport and it cranked and fired right up. I took a short drive  for about 10 to 15 minutes, came home , shut off the car. Right away I went to start it again and nothing at all. Didn't click, didn't turn over. This was around 9:00 AM.

I turned the key to Run, opened the hood and put a screwdriver between the 2 terminals on the Starter Relay. The car started right up.

The Ignition Switch, the Starter Relay and the Starter all worked fine on the first start. Which one was likely to fail on my attempt to restart ? What causes the component to work, not work, work again, not work ?

I was busy all day so the car sat all day. A few minutes ago ( 5:40 PM ) I went out and it cranked and started right up. If I take a drive it will probably do it again. It did the exact same thing yesterday.

Any tips and or suggestions on fixing this intermittent problem ?

Bye for now and Happy fathers Day !!!!!
