Obwiously, I'm not mechanic but I have mechanical skills, I've been doing so many repairs on various cars ie engine change or automatic gearbox repair

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Chrysler Mechanic should know about your Chrysler?

Not really, but when I bought this car I have replaced gearbox but car was driving well and after few months car been staying in the garden for few weeks (motor starter has been replaced) but was starting as normal after repair, just one day when trying to start it up, car won't start.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

Fuse 17 is the fuse that supplies the fuel heater relay but if this fuse blew it would only take down the heater element, it wouldn't cause a no start condition. I'm assuming it's actually fuse 23 that's blowing, which runs through the ignitions switch and to the SKIM module, ECM, the coil side of the fuel heater relay, park assist module, front control module, and the BCM.

Does the ECM not communicate with a scan tool when the fuse is blown?
