Every summer the car has the same problem. I used the smart key to start the car and it would just do a click sound. I try several times and finally turn on. It does it for several times a month and then never again until the next summer.Every year the same problem. They told me there is a problem with the key itself? it that possible? I would not spend the money if it is just guessing.
It would not start the car and only makes a 'click'.It is not the starter on 2009 Dodge Journey
Check your battery terminal if it sit good and tight.
if you have a spare smart key you can try it and find out if its the key or not. don't forget to replace the batt on the key itself
