Question 2009 chrysler Aspen hybrid only one click but does not start

2009 Chrysler was out of fuel so died and won't start...fill with gas ..still no start

Now it makes one click / thumping noise as if it wants to start but dont start..

Should I consider starter as culprit? or something else? if its start can someone post a picture of starter location?

Is it possible that when it was out of fuel .....it sucked crud/junk from bottom of fuel tank and caused fuel pump/filter to go bad and that is why it won't start?

If it cranks and cranks but does not fire I would say it was fuel related. Some vehicles even have a fuel reset switch which trips when you run out of fuel to protect the fuel pump. This switch requires resetting if you ran it out of fuel. I do not know if the Aspen has this or not. This would require research.

Due to the fact that you say it is only "Clicking / Thumping" makes me think you are hearing the starter solenoid activating, but not engaging the starter. My fathers Civic just recently did the same thing. It was the starter as I suspect is the same for you.

is that on the drivers side? If so I'm pretty sure the starter is under that. I would lay under it and listen to it from underneath while someone tries starting it. I would bet it's the starter with stripped gears or something.

I didn't know the aspen had a remote battery terminal though. EDIT oh yeah hybrid does mine doesn't.

Wow. That sounds like an air compressor running. Never heard a starter sound like that before. I guess it could if like themps says the gears are stripped out. Usually when a starter goes out though it just locks up and all you hear is a single click from the solenoid trying to activate it.

Yes it is air compressor ...because a hose is connected to it ...when I remove it...the noise gets louder and longer...
But why would it gets engaged when I just open the door..I am not even trying to turn the key or put in ignition.

Further...can it cause it not to start?

Now I see a HEV indicator on dash......what does it indicate..when I check the navigation radio to check hybrid system ..it says
system is off

Okay, does the 09' Hybrid have air suspension? Didn't know any of the Aspens had an air compressor. I know mine doesn't. Only reason I know for needing one is for suspension. It should not be engaging simply by opening a door. It should require the key being turned on. Compressors pull some power and can drain the battery if the motor isn't running to charge.

In any case, sounds like you may have a deeper electrical problem. Possibly a PCM or ECM going bad. May need to take this one to the professionals.

I don't think it has air suspension. Unless it is some aftermarket add on. That's a really weird noise. Almost like a relay going nuts. I mean I suppose it could by the vapor pump or purge solenoid thing that I replaced but it seems like you'd probably hear that and find it it is right up top. I found this part that I think is specific to the hybrids (I think?). https://parts.moparonlineparts.com/a...ng-system-scat

But this one is a mystery. Dealer would be the place to take it I think.
