2012 chrysler 300. battery...

2012 chrysler 300. battery is fine. holding keyfob against start button and all kinds of electrical activity began including windshield wipers, lights blining on/off - averything except engine crank. Possible PCM problem? Any way to get car started to get to shop without calling a wrecker?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fob's battery?

Well, if fob battery is problem it's coincidentally happened with 2 different fobs.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your 300 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Have checked trunk (finally got it open and car battery looks good with no corrosion and it obviously has juice. That's all i've tried - and no don't plan on trying to fix this electrical / computer problem myself. The only thing i know to try next is get new batteries for both fobs.

Welcome to JA my name is Mark.

I understand you have stated the battery is "fine", but have you tried to jump start it and see if it will stat?

What method did you use to determine the battery is fine?

all lights come on - the electric controlled truck opens - the windshield wipers are continually going now and can't turn them off - the ignition button is in the RUN position and can't get it turned off.

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
