    Help I am having starting issues with wifes 2015 chrysler 200.

    so I replaced the battery 2 years ago, the Jack powell told me it could be a wire problem but the problem is they are booked for like 13 more days. Should I keep going to poway jeep... a client told me their service is subpar but what I found it their sales is subpar. THey gave me good value on my trade but have so many "extras' that it was $5,000 on a used car.

    so here is my questions
    1. how long could it take to repair ether a batter, starter, alt, electal probems or a sensor?
    2. what rental would be simular to a 2015 chrysler 200 in terms of space and carrying people or things.
    3. if my wifes car is starting and then not starting could she trust it to get to work?

    Sorry to hear about the trouble. Has the car been sitting around and not being used everyday due to the lock down? A lot of cars are having battery trouble due to the cars sitting and not being used. It may just be a discharged battery. You can go to a retail parts store and have it tested. They do that for free. Many will even charge the battery for free. When you have an electrical issue, voltage needs to be measured. You can't assume anything because of the age of the battery. Think of it like your cellphone. The battery can get discharged on a new phone and it only needs to be charged up and it can still be good.

    That's for the battery. Once you have a charged battery, you need to have the charging system checked to see why the battery discharged. Now if the battery was at a good charge (remember it needs to be measured and not assumed it is charged because of its age or it turns on your lights, etc.) you then have to check the starting system. That can get more involved. Generally connection issues are the biggest cause of issues in the charging and starting system.

    How long that takes is hard to be estimated. It could be something simple like a loose battery clamp or a wire or component failed. If you aren't going to do it yourself, I would stop by a retail parts store and have them check the car out. You may have to go to a couple to get an experienced person to look at the car. Keep in mind, these places don't pay their employees to fix cars and they do basic diagnosis as a courtesy with their equipment. Sometimes, though, you will get an experienced person who can give good suggestions. They may swap out a bad battery or even take it out and charge it for you, so it is a good start. Your issue may just be something simple like that.

    As for is the car reliable, that's a guess without any basic checking. You really need to get the battery was checked, make sure it is fully charged, the charging and starting systems checked. If everything checks good, then you have an intermittent problem and that is unpredictable when that will pop up and leave you stranded. Good luck.

    Any automotive part supplier, can test your battery for. Pep boys, Advanced auto, O’Reilly, etc. They will do a load test, making sure while you engine is running. The voltage output should be around 14.4 volts. A strong battery output should be around 12.2 volts. While the vehicle not running.

    Since this is a Fiat forum, it’s really not known what dealership, you should take your car to for service. Any rental Hyundai, Kia, sedan is compatible to a Chrysler 200.

    I would look into purchasing one of these quick jump starters. If you don't trust starting the car. We have one in every car we own. Very easy to use.

    You could try Googling "Chrysler 200 starting problems". There are several Youtube videos on the Chrysler 200's not starting. Having a weak battery or corroded/loose terminals are one cause. If jump starting works, that could be the problem.

    Many seem to be a problem with the key fob. The dealer will probably tell you to replace the FOB battery. In the manual, it says to try pushing the start button with the FOB, but this guy shows where the antenna is located, on the lower console, beside your right leg.



    This guy shows how to reset a FOB. He'd accidentally pushed Panic and the car locked down.



    The starter also gets too hot and it'll shut down when that happens.



    This guy solved the problem by adding a ground wire... and lists several possible causes in the comments.

    So I took it to the dealership and what happen was that they said the the little shop who installed the interstate battery did not do a good job of installing the connectors, also they hooked up the battery to their testing equipment and what they found was a battery would not hold a charge. That just siting on without the engine on it was losing volts and CCA much more then it should have. So what they did was replace some of the leads, and connectors and some sensors. They replaced the battery also they said that the people was I had a off brand and sometimes cheap batteries do hold a charge as well as the good brand of molars ones.

    So I will pick up the car tommorw and looking about $350 for the charges ?
    so what do you guys thing about how much and what they said what was wrong and what they did to fix the problem.

    Sounds pricey assuming you could have done it yourself but who knew a two year battery would go bad. I would have used a Costco battery and done the connections myself. Anyways sounds like you have a good running car and hopefully the problem is water under the bridge. When my car was in for minor warranty work I was given a 200 to drive for a few days. I liked it.

    $350 for a new battery. Wow. Any auto supply store could have down the same thing, for $150. Load test, replaced you battery. Interstate, Duralast etc. How many Month battery, did they sell you? Here are some batteries Rock auto has for sale...

    So update I took it to the local Chrysler dealerships and they sold me a battery for $135, new connector and new terminals, replace the battery holders. They showed me that the interstate battery they put in it was for a 5.7 hemi ram 1500. Also the battery was losing volts. Also not able to hold a charge very well. So they put a mopar battery that is much smaller. Totall cost was $285 . I also got a little bit of a credit on the old battery.
