I had the same problem.(Your not going to like this) it turned out to be the wiring harness. There are two. Big one under the hood and little one under the dash. New ones cost almost twice the worth of the truck. I have a friend who is a mechnic that worked on mine for 2 months in his spare time. He found 3 bad spots in the harness. Dodge doesn't use resisters they use different resistent wire. The wire may look good but if it's weak it's all over. So $1200 and 2 months later it runs great. Burnt up 2 computers trying to find the problems.

Hi, I parked my 1995 Isuzu turck Fvr 900 curtainsider a month ago. Now when I start (even after putting fully charged batteries) It wont start? Any suggestions, what & where to check


what crank or cranks but will not starts.
well do the head lights work and all other lights?>
jump cable starts on huge diesels take huge cables and off major
source, like other running truck.

all you can is.
check fuses.
check battery lugs for green corrosion. clean them.
charge the battery
get it up to 12.6vdc reseted or more,.
make sure you try cranking in neutral .
I can not decode your first paragraph, no commas, or periods.
"It doesnt show any light turns on inside cabin and looks like no current supply is through?"

what does that mean?

if you parked it for 30 days with a load on somewhere
the battery may be now toasted. (sulfated bad)

Low voltage


does it crank fast, at 250 spec RPM?
no year, no joy, all cars have a year,
and and engine option (displacement size???)
my wild guess, is it wont crank or cranks dead slow.
right?
and the battery is DISCHARGED. right,
use jumper start cables. start now?
that be first.

wont crank
cranks perfectly but wont start ?(check for spark, x number of cyl)
spark good, try test fuel
test fuel works for 3seconds and stalls,. then fueling problem , ask.

Fuel relay


Short answer, your batter is bad. or is disCHARGED:
Long.:

wont crank?
no engine, cranks ,unless the starting system works.
unless pushed fast, like my car or i park on a hill and coast jump my car.(M/T tranny rule)

NO crank, is the true failure here:
slow Cranks are , bad battery , or a discharged battery , due to bad charging system or parked for 3 months or longer.

so ill assume its NO CRANK.
I turn the key TO START and the starter fails to CRANK.
the starter motor is dead. (key clue 1)
so i attach a set of jumper cables to my Caddy, running and this car
now cranks and RUNS (you left that out. above, huh? runs)

turnsover means nothing, because the engine starter turns over
and the engine can turn over and the engine can run,
once running the EFI system SUSTAINS runninng.
so there are 4 states there. (4 phases )

No cranks #1 reason to be slow , are a bad battery
so I charge that battery, and see how if it cranks , now?
it dont crank means a bad battery
it does work( crank) see how long it works.../?
if it dies again, or better, check the cars Alternator for by measuring
accross the battery terminals running , with any volt meter.
13.3 to 15vdc is a good alternator running the engine.
if NOT, the charge system is bad. (system)

On some cars the IMMO can block Cranking or for sure blocks
fueling after 2 seconds. So. watch the IMMO light on the dash.
Immo is the Immoblizer. option.

2000 kia sephia cranks but engine wont run


The fuel pump may have died. Can you hear it turn on briefly, by turning the key to "on"? You may have to stand by the gas tank while someone turns the key to on. It should turn on for about 2 seconds and then stop, after pressurizing the fuel system. If you don't hear it, then check the fuel pump fuse. If the fuse is good, and the pump won't run, one needs to check that the fuel pump wire at the tank connector has battery voltage on it when the engine is cranking-then, you can assume the pump needs replacing.
If the pump is working and you have gas up to the engine, you would next check the ignition system. Start that by checking for spark on one of the spark plug wires.

Car dies slowly while driving


I would suggest checking the fuel pressure when the engine dies. You may have to buy a fuel pressure gauge and carry it with you, or see if letting the car idle for 30 min will duplicate the problem. Could be a fuel pump or relay.

Will crank,but wont start


Check the engine control modular. Ask your parts store where it is and what it looks like. You can check for spark to the spark plug to be sure!

Ithe engine stops during driving and wont start


Try Crank Position Sensor it is a known issue with the ML's. They breakdown and are very easily affected by heat.

Slow start - need to sit for a while - then starts fine.


Hey, 2 words.....Voltage Regulator! i had this problem and before you spend too much, check and make sure that your fan is grounded b/c most must be and then try an actual Diagnosas check normally around $80 but is does pin point whats wrong. Either Voltage regulator or you have a short.
