I have a 2012 Chrysler 200 3.6L. I recently put new front and rear valve cover gaskets, new spark plugs, coils, upper intake and lower intake gaskets as well, pvc valve, oil cooler. I originally was changing just the oil cooler but everything was pretty much off and I’ve had the car for two years I figured why not. I put everything back the way it was. I even noticed on passenger side the wire that goes from the chassis to the block came lose so I cleaned it up and reattached it. I go to start the car and all I get is one click noise. Remove the battery that is a year in a half old took it to autozone an battery was fully charged. I then unplugged one of the plugs that goes to the PCM. I tried to remove the other plug but it wasn’t coming out at all. I turned on the car and it ran. I proceeded to run errands leaving the car on since the car has been sitting for 3 weeks at this point. Finally get home after driving around for two hours and I go to turn on the car to make sure it’s all good again but I get nothing and it’s back to the car making that one click sound. Then I saw a video on YouTube on how to check your starter with the plug under the TIPM so I test it and the starter only makes a click noise. I proceed to remove the starter and once out of the car I test it myself with my other car and the starter turns over with no problem. I connect everything back to the way it was I go to turn on the car and same thing only one click. I unplug the plug that goes to the TIPM one more time and the starter gives me the same one click sound. Any ideas or tips I would highly appreciate it. Thank you

Welcome to the forum. The 'single-click' may be because of a 'safety' issue detected by the PCM? If the PCM doesn't see that the transaxle is fully in Park or Neutral, it can do this.
A poor, corroded or loose connection may cause this. Double-check all connectors & secure all grounds. Make sure that all fuses & relays are fully seated in their sockets in the TIPM, front & rear PDCs.
The +/- jumper cable attachment posts may look tight & clean, but I have removed the nuts & studs to find hidden corrosion underneath. If you had the battery out for testing, the posts & terminals should be clean & tight?
Look for any pinched or cut wires in the engine compartment that might have occurred upon reassembly? Any fault codes? Let us know.

I apologize for the late reply. I have fixed the no start issue. I found that my issue came from the red plastic piece where the cables go to jump start the vehicle. As it turns out when I disconnected the wires from the red bracket and tried to reconnect them they weren’t making good contact. After a small adjustment I got it to work out. I’m But now for some reason I got a check engine light. Took it to the local auto zone and the code the car gave me is P000B. The picture is the red plastic that I mentioned earlier in the post.

At first glance, the P0000B seems unrelated to the electrical connection.
How's the oil? Check the engine cam solenoid wiring?
