2006 Dodge Charger won’t start

car was running great but when I turned it off for about 15 min. I started it and it died right away. I started the engine about 4-5 more times with the same result and then the car quit cranking over when I tried to start it … so I turned the ignition switch on got under the car and jumped the starter, when I did so the engine cranked over but it still wouldn’t start PLEASE HELP

Did you check the battery? How old is it? Check your connections for tightness.

It sounds like there may be a problem with the fuel delivery to the engine. Check the fuel filter and the fuel pump operation. To confirm the trouble is with the fuel you can spray a small amount of starter fluid into the intake and see if that makes the engine fire. You may also have a weak battery and may need to replace it.
