2007 Chrysler Aspen Q&A

2007 Chrysler Aspen Question: Suddenly Won't Start

With no fair warning I went to start my Aspen and all will it do is make a loud clicking noise. The speedo swings up from zero to about 85 and all the dash lights and radio flash on for a second or two, but the engine makes no attempt to turn over at all. The remote start does not work at all, as well as the remote door locks. I tried to jump start , no help.(The headlights turn on and are working fine, no signs of weak battery....????). I left it sit for 4 hours and tried again. The remote door locks still did not work. Attempted to start with the key and the same loud clicking, contact sound, but no turn-over. This is the first time this happened, and there was no symptoms leading up to it. Any help would be appreciated!!!! -
Answer 1
I would start with having the battery load tested at your local auto parts store, Because a bad battery will operate some things but won't have the amps needed to engage the starter or just purchase a new battery -

the problem isnt the battery, You probably tried jumping it but still couldnt get it started. had the same problem last night and eventually got it to turn over but it wouldnt start. no fuel was getting to the cylinders. It seems impossible to find answers on line and even more difficult to get chrysler to acknowledge theres a problem. Wanna know what the problem is? you bought a chrysler! Good luck trading in a broken piece of crap you spent way too much money for. -

disconnect battery wait 1 min then reconnect , car should start ,this resets all factory code on the computer, there is a software glitch with these vehicle s there should be a class action suite against chrysler -

Well it's seems as though this is a problem with a few Chryslers, because my Chrysler is doing the exact same thing. If you were able to figure out what the problem was please email me at datjayz@yahoo.com Thanks -

once the battery is taken out or disconnected ,it resets code in the computer ,then car will start when reconnected class action against Chrysler would be a good thing -

I am having the problem with my 2008 Aspen. This started with my wife calling me stating the car will not start. She had the radio running for about an hour. i went over got it started. Engine light comes on and now it will not start up properly. Every thing comes on but the engine will not turn over. I then try for about 5-10 minutes and then it starts. I will go to autozone today to have them check my battery. -
Answer 5
i too have this problem,it,is definitley not the battery.does this with brand new battery,I disconect the battery, which in turn resets the factory code on the computer , reconect and vehicle starts right away.I had no problems when I disconnected the radio/nav system, chrysler wanted to sell me another for $3988.00. I opted to put a better after market system in ,all was fine till weather started getting colder ,now its doing the exact same thing ,glad I did not listen to chrysler dealer . If you find out ahy other info I also would appreciate Thanks Tony T -

I am having the same problem. 2007 chrysler aspen with less than 90 thousand miles will not start. I think it is time to make chrysler stand up and take responsibility. Who is with me. Class action..we need signatures -
Comment 2
I am with you, my husband's 07 Aspen is doing the same thing. We were told it was the ignition switch and a day later the same error message and him getting stranded in a parking lot! It's not the battery, it's not the ignition, it's just a crappy piece of engineering that Chrysler needs to take responsibility for -
