If that don't make it run then you need to check the fuel pump pressure. Hi, I have a 1988 Mercedes 260e. On a 1998 Dodge Ram van we had it turned out to be the brake light switch near th pedal. Good work on finding the no spark condition. Had this problem on a 06 , lights worked but trying to start it would only get a click out of the starter , cleaning the cables and posts fixed that problem. Still no spark and engine just cranks and cranks, no sign of life.
It will inevitable fail and leave you stranded when you least expect it. You have a 12 volt test light? I would recommend paying a qualified technician to diagnose the problem. Make sure 1 is at tdc. There does not have to be coolant in it. Tried to start with a batter jolt and nothing,,,it tries to start, like the motor tries to roll over and then nothing,,,it slowly dies,,,then we smell the gasoline,,so we hope its got to be something simple,,,what else can it be? Make sure you are working with a good battery.
I still don't know why the battery got drained, though. Verify the clicking you hear is coming from the starter. A lot of cars from that era have separate units or both within the alternator. Did you ever try to keep it running by giving it some gas? Make sure it is plugged in. Sometimes the relay does not respond when the motor turns.
If it's cranking the only thing we actually know is that is has power. Agreed on the battery thought. Write these blinking codes down. The codes that a scanner small diagnostic screen tells the technician helps to get to a starting point so all else can be ruled out before replacing a part that a customer or Chrysler must pay for. I can give you all kinds of voltages to check if you're meter savvy. I could be a computer, spark, timing, or fuel issue.
A minor drain of a few milliamps should not be a problem,e. If it cranks but won't start then you have disconnected something to the fuel or ignition system. I have a 1998 Plymouth Voyager, 3. And a handy 12 volt test light. Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions.
I prefer the peace of mind over trying to squeeze a few more months out of it. Let us know what happens when things dry out. It's a cylinder about 8 inches long. And one more inside number 3, 20 amp. A test is available, since you have done the things I asked, we are starting. The problem that i have is that it isnt getting fire to the plugs.
Another one that happened to our 1999 Grand Voyager, the engine fan was not shutting off. The crank sensor mounts in the top part of transaxle a little towards the rear. It could be trying to let you know it's done. You do not have to take it completely off the vehicle. Even the dealer didn't find it until someone noticed the lights on while it was in their parking lot.
I replace mine but it didnt help me. I am fighting the exact same thing with my 2000 voyager. Before you come to that make sure the starter connections are clean and tight. There is a crank sensor and cam sensor. Can of coke is a messy, if easy way to clean them off.
I know it sounds obvious but I have over looked simple stuff and kicked myself later. I am thinking maybe the starter or something…any help would be greatly appreciated. Eventually ending up at a no crank could have just been wearing down the battery through successive starts. This was on a almost brand new battery , I pulled the battery and put it on a charger but the charger said it was fully charged so that led me to the cables and cleaning them. This will save you money for an Alternator you don't need and save you time for replacing a good alternator.
