My normally problematic to start 05 500 4x4 (carb/fuel issues) has been fine the last couple months after tearing down carb and cleaning again etc.. It has turned very cold, I have been running it every 5-7 days and it has been starting. Need it BADLY BADLY right now, snow storm is almost here, and now no start. It is much colder than usual. Can someone tell me how I might try to start it?? I did not try starter fluid, I don't know where to spray it?? Air intake?? But not sure where that's at? Sad I know, I don't maintain it myself. If someone can help me I would appreciate it. Thanks.

Just saw your post. I also have a 2005 500 auto. 99.9% of the time it starts immediately.

But, there are a few things that will cause it to not start at all.

3 things...Make sure you have fuel, spark, and air.

Air seems to be the most common problem when it will not start at all for me.

There is an air line from the fuel pump to the carb. If this is broken, it will not start.

There is another breather air line from the carb that has to be at least 12" to 16" long and not broken. (it just hangs there) If this is broken or too long, it will not start. Sometimes little mud wasps pack it full, and it will not start.

I speak from experience!

I'd be interested to know if you found out the cause (by this time you must have solved the problem).
