1994 Dodge Dakota V6. Intermittant starting problem then finally stopped starting at all. Thought it was the fuel pump as I wasn't getting any pressure on the fuel rail when checked. $180+ later found the fuel pump wasn't getting power. Had already checked the relays and fuses...everything good there. Ignition switch is new, could it be the Engine Control module??

I would be thinking that there is a good chance that you need to be checking out replacing the computer, if you aren't getting any communication with the proper scan tool then the computer isn't communicating with anything in the vehicle...... I would have guessed first off that the ignition control module might be bad but that is obviously part of the computer also, I would be looking in that direction.

when your engine went into that 5 second sputter,
your computer or "PCM" did not get a constant signal from the crank or cam sensors that the engine was running.
These two sensors tell the computer what RPM the engine is turning so it can adjust fuel and spark.

did you use aftermarket crank sensor? if so that might be your problem. dealer has several different ones, by providing vin number, but there is only one after market for all optimas 01-05. try to connect thick pink wire and thick orange wire together on the ignition failure sensor. you might have the same problem as me. good luck.
