Why won't my 1996 Chrysler Concorde 3.5L start?

Ok, I have a 1996 Chrysler Concorde with the 3.5L V6. I just had the Crank sensor replaced and then a couple days ago i started the car, drove about 5 miles parked it went inside and came out 45 minutes later, it started just fine. I drove down the block, parked, went in and came back out and it wouldn't start or crank. 6 hours later it started just fine. I drove it home and 2 hours later went to drive it to the store and is started just fine at home but then I go in for maybe 5-10 minutes and it does the same thing, no crank and no start. What in the world is wrong?

    Could be quite a few things.

    It would be good if, during the next "no crank/no start" you turned on the headlights, and with someone watching, or with you seeing the headlights reflected off a wall or window--see if the lights dim when you turn the key to "start".

    If they DO dim, then I'd check and clean your battery terminals first off, then re-test.

    If they DON'T dim, then something is interrupting the signal to the starter solenoid. That could be many things, such as bad neutral safety switch, bad ignition switch, bad starter relay, corroded fuse box, faulty wiring, faulty connectors, etc.
