Is it an automatic or manual? If it is an auto check to see if it is truly in park. Just a guess but worth a try.

Wife has a Dodge Magnum, shortly after buying it the same thing happened. Dealer said static tripped the security system, all they did was disconnect the battery and reconnect to fix. Could it be????

WHEN in DOUBT, GAS-IT !

Send a message via Yahoo to WTF_LOL

Phild had a similar issue. YOu may want to contact him to see what his outcome was. Take a look at this thread, it was about a TSB that was similar but probably not what your issue is but Phil's rig just didn't even start...

That'd be my suggestion too.

ha...thats the first thing i said to her "you push in the clutch". Called the 800 number for roadside assistance and they sent out a wrecker and its at the dealership.
Will see what happens, I sold my scrambler because i wanted something more reliable , oh well hopefully not a big or recurring deal.
