A no crank or no start condition may be the result of a theft system fault. Our technicians tell us that replacing the wireless control module should correct this issue.

    'No Start' but will crank. Had been in 3 yrs. ago leaving us stranded but luckily warranty was still good. This morning it happened to my wife at home. After work I disconnected the neg. cable for about 10 min. and had no success with starting. So for giggles I hit the panic button (to engage the security system) and inserted key to the start position. It started and I hit the panic button again to deactivate it. Worked like a charm and both factory keys worked. Hope this helps someone. I'm a mechanic by trade and have checked for TSB's since I had the issue before. I'm happy with the car in general, but will probably never by this type again. My main source now is the Ram 1500 sport 5.9, wife gets the Caliber.

    Battery would go dead. Was being drained when shut off. Car would continue to run after key was turned "off" and removed from ignition. Was advised it was a shorted wireless control module and car would actually be trying to start when in the off position. Great security option. Cost was $400 to replace at dealer. Original key was still able to be used. Cost for key replacement if necessary would have been $160.

    I was parked in a lot with my car running and it just shut off. A day later it would not even turn over, however the radio and lights still worked. This happened once before and my mechanic had to replace the relay wires. Now it is doing it again!!
