Haha help me again

Hey man i got another problem wondering if you could help me out..i did everything u said i even pulled the censor out and was very careful with it but the problem still occurs the light went off and everything but as soon as we stopped the car and started back up again it felt like the brakes kicked in on its own and then it turned the abs lights and traction control on ... it felt like it was rubbing or something we prayed it out made sure there was no grease at all on it... thanks again

    well what happens is we sprayed the whole thing out with a brake cleaner.. and make sure to wipe it off and everything... the only reason why it kicks back on is cause it trys to hit the brakes like anti lock when i hit them... and the censor wont let it so it makes it studder a little.. i drive the car all the time theres nothing wrong with it driving wise its just no anti lock brakes and no traction control... but i will take both tire off and see if anything is different between each side...thank your for the help

This part scares me...."it felt like the brakes kicked in on its own and then it turned the abs lights and traction control on ... it felt like it was rubbing or something"........there must be a mechanical problem here..geometry of brake parts /rotor etc...everything you disturbed when changing out the axle needs to be VERy carefully inspected ...we are dealing with safety issues here now not just a light...look at the side that was not done..and move back to see how it looks on the side you did..something is not the same and we must find it before you take this thing out on the road again

It wont crank over, Have changed the crank censor, knock censor and body modual censor still wont work . If I diconnent the battery and main computer for a few min. it will start but once it is turned off...

Without test main componets on the vehicle we would only be guessing . Doing electrical checks , hooking up a professional scan tool an viewing engine data etc. your best bet ,take it to a qualified repair shop . Spend the money for an hour diagnostic time .That is unless you like guessing an just replacing parts

Haha no prob man. Just try following those steps, to tell you the truth most of my automotive backgound is based off my lifted jeep gf's car is the first import i've even cared to look at (with everything being so crammed together)...but if some 20 year old punk kid can do it, im sure you can too. Let me know how it turns out, I'm really interested to find out if this is way more of a common prob. then I thought. Cheers,

Cranks but wont turn over

you know. i took it to a mechanic and actually.... The timing belt cut the Crank Shaft Censor... So it was the crank shaft censor again. The wires were routed wrong from the first mechanic that "fixed" the car.

Pulling back feeling

I too own a dodge spirit. When I am driving and the a/c kicks in It gives that feeling you describe. Try it without the a/c on..and defrost off and see if it goes away. Is it a pull back and then go again or a steady pull back at that speed or throttle position?
Oxygen sensors also have a great effect on this car. Throttle position sensors are another thing that can cause this, and of course if you have a bad wire or spark plug that too will do it.gary
