Goof morning, have you tried jumpstsrting or charging the battery yet?

If you put a battery charger on make sure something wasn't accidentally left on causing battery drain. If possible charge the battery completely before cranking

Expert:  Reggie Whiddon replied 11 months ago.

If nothing was left on and no battery light when started we will have to diagnose you will need a voltmeter

Please forgive my spelling it's my tablet I am almost at my desktop. I will add Chrysler has a software update concerning many electrical issues I have programmed several with great success.

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
It started right up with jumper cables. With a new battery doesn't that indicate a problem somewhere else
Expert:  Reggie Whiddon replied 11 months ago.

could be, are you sure nothing was left on? If not we need to check it for a parasitic drain, and also I would like to see you get the flash update to your pcm

Expert:  Reggie Whiddon replied 11 months ago.

If you have a voltmeter one capable of reading amperage we can perform the parasitic drain test.

I'm going to take it in to the dealer
Expert:  Reggie Whiddon replied 11 months ago.

Okay sir well they will perform the flash update which will most likely cure your problem it has with the ones I have had. So is there anything else I can do for you, answer any question you have about this issue

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
