Th coil is powered by the auto shutdown relay which gets power from fuse 21 in the power distribution center. There will only be power for a second or two or anytime the engine is cranking. This same power is supplied to the fuel injectors. Check to see if there is power to the injectors on the dark green with orange wire while cranking the engine. If there is double check power to the coil on the dark green with orange wire with the engine cranking.

SOURCE: 97 Dodge Ram Pick up cranks ok engine won't run

try checking all the ground circuits comming out of the PCM. and its also not common for a ground driver in the PCM to fail on dodges. also i have seen crankshaft sensors short out and take out pcm communication. so i would start by unplugging any sensor that runs off the 5v supply until the pcm wil talk to the scanner. if you unplug a sensor and communication returns to scanner then replace the sensor. and dont forget to check for good power and ground at the data link conector and PCM

Check the timing belt. Sometimes the timing tentioner goes bad in them.

SOURCE: 1998 dodge Neon no fire to coil

it sound like you have a bad crank sensor when the sensor gets hot it open circuits inside the sensor and you loose spark if you have access to a noid light see if you are loosing injector pulse also if so then you know its a good chance its the crank sensor

I have a 2005 dodge neon that will crank but wont start. I have replaced the cam shaft sensor, crank sensor and the coil pack. Iam also not getting spark to the coil pack. Any suggestions?

Primary voltage to several systems, including the ignition coil, dark green wire with orange tracer. That voltage comes from asd relay. There is a fuse for asd relay. To check for voltage the engine has to cranking. The control side of asd relay, the computer has to ground it before it will energize. Did you check wiring circuits for cam and crank sensor connectors before replacing sensors? Are there any applicable trouble codes?
Are you ok with testing wiring circuits?

96 dodge ram 1500 5.2, no spark,changed cam,crank sensors,cap and roter,no power to coil

Check ALL the fuses and the ignition switch. May also want to check for a open circuit to the coil. When the ignition is turned to the run position there should be at least 12 volts at the coil positive side.If voltage is not there then it is one of the previous things mentioned.

Crank but no start

If there is no +12 to the coil then you must trace it to the fuse box and the ignition switch because without power there will be no output. Jump a 12 volt and see if the engine fires, if so trace using a test lamp 12 volt park lamp or a multimeter.

If the car has starting problems then check these tips:

96 dodge intrepid,

might just be a bad connection or corroded connection at the coil or the crankshaft sensor. Also could be crankshaft sensor is bad. Start with moving the connector while someone turns it over for you. Also see if your tachometer registers at all during cranking.

Igniton fuse continuously blows on my 1995-96 dodge neon

Do you have an aftermarket stereo installed? Well, try this. Remove the ground cable from the battery. Install a new fuse. if it continues, Remove the center console. and check the reverse wire connected to the shifter. It did the same thing to me and all it was, was that wire was touching other wires
