2012 and 2013 Dodge Avengers not starting at times

Asked by Oct 24, 2018 at 01:42 PM about the 2013 Dodge Avenger SE FWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2013 Dodge Avenger with 20k miles occasionally doesn't start.  Everything lights-up but it won't crank.  Anywhere from 3-12 times of taking key out and putting it back in to try to start, it will eventually start.  I mentioned it to my coworker who has a 2012 and he said the same thing happens to him.  Garage says unless it is doing it for them, there is nothing they can do.

Might be a finicky relay or your ignition switch. This situation might related to a dying battery; you have juice to light lights, but not enough to turn the starter motor. Have battery and starting system checked out.
