Is this an intermitting problem only occure during dry and cold weather?
Behind the ignition key lock there is a module call Wireless Control Module (WCM). When this module is zap by static eletricity build up during cold weather (via the key). It will hang just like you computer.
As a test please please touch the key to a metal object to discharge the static on the key before insert it into the ignition.
If the problem stop complete then you can take it to the Dodge dealer the arrange service on the Wireless Control Module (WCM) or wire for better grounding.

Mine did the same thing. The security system shut me out. It thought the car was being stolen and it wouldn't do anything.Had to have the dealer fix it.

Have you checked the continuity of the battery cables to the starter?

2011 dodge nitro. Had red lightning bolt pop up and now car wont start been having problems cranking so.id turn key 3times give gas and usually crank then.it finally gave out wontdo anything.


Electrical problems. Start with battery. Condition? terminal corrosion? Charging system? will it jump start? if it will but dies when jumper cable is removed, charging system has problem.
Auto parts store can check battery, charging system read error codes. you may be able to find problem. If you check google I bet you are not the only one.
