Question about 2007 Dodge Nitro SLT

2 Answers

During the winter when my nitro sits for a few days it wont start. when I put the key in to start it all it dose is click no turning over.

I have to boost it to get it to start. I killed 2 battery's last year because of this. I don't think its a battery problem cause I get good winter battery's. no I do not plug my nitro in because I cant.

    Hey Jeff.
    I have thought bout that but my problem only happens during the winter when the temp is below -20C and my nitro sits for a few day. If I use my command start and start my vehicle everyday then it'll start until the temp drop below -30 then within 24 hrs ish it be frozen. I do know 1 other person with a nitro like mine who dosent have this problem.

Have you checked for a parasitic draw on the system . Something draining the battery .

I don't think you killed batteries by jumping it off. When the battery is fully charged, disconnect the battery cables and let it set as you would when you have problems starting it. If there is no difference when you try to start the car, its your battery. Be aware, that just because you have a new expensive battery does not guarantee it isn't bad. The difference in many instances of a 24 month battery and a 36 month battery is the cost and the label. They 36 month cost more to cover the number of batteries that are warranted and internally there is very little difference.

You can try this.
Turn on the key and listen for the fuel pump to prime.
It will sound like a gentle hum. when it stops, turn the key off. wait a few seconds and do it again. Do this three or four times, but don't try to start it. after the third or fourth time you turn it off, try to start it. It may not be priming the fuel injectors fast enough.

2001 ranger wont start after sitting


check the fuel pump and see is working properly, if the pump is good than the problems will be the crank sensor is faulty. what crank sensor does it sense the turning of the flywheel and it send a single to ecu, and ecu send a flow of power to turn on the fuel pump as long it sense the flywheel turning.

it could be the coil pack or even your immobiliser. try disconnecting your immobiliser. they seem to have bad-parts/dry-joints in them after a few years.
