First I checked all the fuses and I turned off the check

Customer Question
light engine, I turned the...
First I checked all the fuses and I turned off the check light engine, I turned the car 3 times and hit the trip reset button to turn the check engine light off.I did it to check codes but there were none. Car was running fine just before that. I checked fuses because the heater went out. And now the car won't start. What do I need to do to get it started. I have no idea what happened. If you can help it would greatly appreciated.

Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question. Does the engine crank over and not start or does it not crank over at all?

Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 1 year ago

Can you keep it running if you step on the gas pedal? Do you have a security light on or flashing on the dash? Can I get your engine size and or VIN number?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
No it doesn't keep running when I step on the gas, and no there are no security lights flashing on the dash. The engine size is a 2.7
Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 1 year ago

Ok, does the engine have spark? Does it run on starting fluid? Have you checked for codes in the computer?

The car was running fine before I checked the fuses all I did was checked the ignition 3 times to check the codes no codes cane up. Then after I did that I went to check the fuses becuasemy heater went out. All of them were fine there was none blown when I got back in the car to start it it wouldn't start. That's my problems. Yes it has sparks. I checked for codes no codes and no it doesn't run on starter fluid.
Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 1 year ago

Are you sure you put the fuses back in place properly? I would double check this first before we continue.

I have the manual to the fuse box and they are all in the correct spots. I think what happen was, was that I pulled the battery fuses out without disconnecting the battery.
Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 1 year ago

Does the check engine light come on with the key on for a bulb check?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It comes on. Its kicks over but it doesn't stay running.
Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 1 year ago

Right. I understand. Your best bet would be to check for spark and fuel. If there is spark but no fuel, then you could simply have a bad fuel pump.

It doesn't have anything to do with engine. My car was running just fine before I touched the fuses. It has something to do with the electrical. My engine light is not on. All I did was turned the engine light off and touched the fuses that's all I did.
Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 1 year ago

I know. I understand.

Try disconnecting the battery cables from the battery for about 10 minutes and then reconnect them back up.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Sorry, and when I redid the battery and waited ten minutes it didn't work but ya the etc light is flashing red when I try starting the car.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
You think when I turned the egnition on 3 times it caused something?
Dodge Mechanic: Amedee, Dodge Technician replied 1 year ago

It sounds like the security system has been tripped. I would try using a different key.
