It wont start. It's not the battery. Possibly the alternator or starter. Suggestions as to where to take a Chrysler 2004 Crossfire in San Rafael CA?
JA: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?
Customer: No its pretty clean.
JA: Are you fixing your Crossfire yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Removed fuses to radio that was not it. It's been jumped several times. It clicked but went dead.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Its been an on going problem for about 2.50 moonths

Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

When it was jumped if it started each time this indicates the starter is o.k.This can be the alternator at fault.

If it did not start when it was jumped then this can indicate the starter is faulty needing replaced.

It is a good idea to have the battery tested with a battery tester ( a local parts store will do this free of charge for you) just to make sure it is o.k. if this has not been done.

I have found this highly rated facility in your area to have this looked into and repaired.They are not open today but will be open tomorrow.

The other thing to have checked is to make sure all wiring and cables at the battery, starter and alternator are clean and tight as this will cause this fault also here.
