Hi,i drove my 2012 Chrysler 200 as usual everyday and got home and parked it. 20 Min. later I tried to go pick up something to eat and it wouldn't start. I've had the battery tested, new starter put in and even the alternator tested. Im 6 months pregnant and losing my mind along with money. Please help!
It is frustrating to try to deal with this sort of car problems. I"m not sure of why you would have to replace your starter if your battery and alternator tested and they were okay, you should not have had to have replaced your starter. If they were bad/faulty, then yes, you typically do need a new starter. Check to see if maybe there is short in your electrical wiring.

Whoever did the last work on your car, and from your question, I cannot tell, should warranty their work. You also do not say how long ago you had any work done. My suggestion is to to call the last shop and let them know your car will not start. If they are reputable, they should stand behind their work and find a way to get you back on the road. If they say it is not their problem, find a Certified Female Friendly shop near you and give them a call. My research shows that the 200 has some wiring issues in general.

It's still such a new car. Try taking it back to the dealership & see if there's a warranty. If there's a check engine light on some shops will check that for free.
