I own a 2003 Chrysler town and country. I was driving home and all of a sudden the car just shut off. I coasted to the side of the road and tried to restart and nothing. The warning signals( ie seat belt etc) came on normal but when I turned the key nothing no sound. I have no clue as to what is wrong with it. Had it towed home and here it sits. Any suggestions. I do not have the money for a mechanic.

I would check battery connections and condition. Also, could be ignition key. When you try to turn it on, does the starter turn or just click?


#3

No There is no sound when you turn on the key.


#4

The battery may be discharged. Do you have or can you borrow a battery charger? Once running again you will need to measure the charging voltage with a voltmeter.


#5

Does it still have a serpantine belt?


#6

Find a digital voltmeter (they are very cheap to buy) and check to see what the battery has and report.


#7

I still have all the belt. when the battery dies the car automatically locks the doors.
