I went to start my 2002 2.7 Intrepid today,(about 35 miles from home!) and it wouldn't start. It has plenty of juice, but just clicks once when you turn the key. We tried jumping it, but that didn't help. Any suggestions? Of course I was all the way home after calling my wife to rescue me, when I thought I should have tried the code deal.
Thanks

I second that, but check the battery cables before going for the starter. They tend to rot out and break around the post, leaving a good enough connection to power the car, but not the high amps the starter needs to run...

It was the battery cable. It was loose! Unfortunately I didn't think of it until I was already home, so I had it towed to a garage and that's what they found. Live and learn I guess. I wonder what engineer decided to play let's stick the battery in the most difficult place we can find. Thanks alot everyone, as usual, this is the place to find answers.
