Try putting vehicle in neutral and try to start if it does bad neutral safety switch

If the battery is 4 years old or older it's time for a replacement.


I had an issue with the wires to the starter if you pull the top off of the Airbox and pull on the wires as someone turns the key it may start.

Same issue with 2009 VW Routan, it's a really a Chrysler T&C with a VW logo. After lots of research, I have determined it's the Electronic Throttle Control. I have a new mechanic, because the old one sucked. Took it to the dealership and they robbed me and never fixed the problem. Hoping my new mechanic can put an end to this 2+ year misery!


Check the under hood fuse box. they had an issue.


My 2017 needed starter replaced. Hoping there are no further issues, as they seem to have SO MANY complaints.


JenB12374 careful on that starter I replaced mine and now the damned starter don't even click.
