    Saturday afternoon I drove the car at least 60 miles without any problems.. Monday morning it wouldnt start.. Its not the battery, I had that tested after hooking the cables to the car for 30+min....
    Someone told me it couldnt be the alternator or starter..
    Any ideas?

    thanks!

    Did you pull the plugs out. Make sure they aren't flooded. Make sure your ignition system is firing to them as well.

    you sound certain, why is that?

    another guy said its not the alternator because the car will run on the battery if the alternator is bad..
    Im pretty sure if the alternator is bad the car isnt going to start, even with a brand new battery..

    atleast its not a Toyota that won't STOP!

    I tried to listen to your video but it wouldn't play =/ maybe cause i'm on a work computer.

    Go out and open the hood.

    If you see a Hemi under there you just found the problem.

    Try putting it in neutral, it may be an intermittent neutral safety switch.

    Cold/moist weather = chance your car is flooding. I have been having problems with my Honda the past month, same symptoms. You crank and crank and it just doesn't fire. I pulled the plugs out and they are saturated with gas. Mine has happened when it rained, a couple of time. I might be getting moisture in the distributor.

    I'm sure if you car is new it has some sort of "clear flood mode". Usually you turn this on by pushing your gas pedal all the way down to the floor and crank it.

    Definately doesn't sound right.

    By the sound I would say it might be the starter. But if you were just kind of tapping the ignition for a few seconds in the video, then it is probably the alternator

    hmm. i would have never thought that the plugs would be flooded because its pretty much a new car.. do u think its a possibility for an 07?

    thx guys

    Anything is possible. Just because something is new doesn't mean it can't break, that's why we have warranties.
