In order for us to be able to help you with this no start concern we need to know what your working on. need the model and make of your 2014. Post back when you can and we can work from there to help you determine the cause.

the vehicle is a 2002 chrysler lxi. 3.0 .approx 52000 miles. never a problem. ran fine so start and pull out of the garage to turn it around for my wife. would not start again after backing it in to move it over a couple more inches. no starter click. can hear what I presume to be the fuel pump. battery terminals clean, battery charged.

Are you getting a full 12 volts at the battery?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
unfortunately won't have time right now. I was working on it yesterday and there was no reply. Now I'm packing for a weekend getaway. Have no way to measure total battery other than my 2014 Schumacher battery charger that showed it fully charged. I also had it jumped from my other vehicle with extra heavy duty cables.

Okay if you would prefer to wait till you return from your trip, post back when you ready and we can work from there.

Just back from holiday, I figured the only thing left would be a "stuck" starter. So I jacked up the car and tapped on the starter. Works fine now, but will order a new starter to prevent a recurrence.
Expert:  Ron replied 3 months ago.

Yea if smacking the starter solved it then replacing its would be the next steps. Glad to hear you got it resolved and thank you as well.
