2005 300C~Won't crank but everything seems good...
Electricial, I think... It's wierd the way this happens. Don't mean to ramble but I have to start from the beginning for it to make sense. The first time this problem happened was on Thanksgiving Day 2012. Everything was running fine. Arrived at my son's house at around 1pm, parked the car, ate dinner, shoot shyt, ready to leave. At around 6pm unlocked the car with the remote, door chimed, seat adjusted, lights turned on, then BAM, car won't start. It acts like the battery is dead but it's not because the dash lights, radio, headlights everything still works. Checked the starter, fuses, everything good...I keep trying to start it (5/6 times) all of a sudden... no dash lights, radio out, windows won't work, but headlights still on. After about 30-45 minutes, lights on but what the hell, I got a jump and it cranked up. Everything is running good until today....
Today, January 27, 2013 (2 months later)- It did the same thing again! Drove the car to the start (about 15 minutes). Turned it off, went in, came out. Everything normal but it wont crank. Checked the battery, Good. Checked the Fuses all good. Checked the starter Good. One thing i noticed was, the starter relay was working but it would do turn. When I turned the key it didn't even click. So...what did I do? Got a jump. It cranked up and ran all day without a problem.
Do anybody have any ideas to what might be going on? I was thinking maybe the battery was going bad but it's been very cold her lately and I've had no hesitation when starting in the morning. So, I'm completely at a lost!
