ok. well after a vehicle has been driven and gets warm/hot ignition components are vulnerable to thermal breakdown especially if they havent been replaced for a few years. theres a recall on your vehicle for a starting issue due to the crankshaft position sensor wiring being faulty, which would cause your problem. you can call a local chrysler dealer to see if your vehicle has had this recall complied with.
