Question about 2001 Dodge Stratus
Runs for 5 seconds and shuts off. Put in a new engine computer and car now starts but stops in 5 seconds. Ideas?
Depend of the Model and Engine size.
Some of this Computer need to be Programed with the Vin number and Theft code,
To work correctly.
But the first step I can Recomend is Get the Vehicle Scanned to see if there any available code.
To do the Right procedure related with the code. ..
But some times even when you Have programed the computer but if the BODY computer has a problem will prevent the car to running.
When the Engine run for about 5 seconds, is mean the Theft system is activated.
Are a few step to program the ECM installed on the car.
But is a little complicated because all the Accessories need to work ok. Door locks, Horn, Lights.
Door lock cylinders and Trunk lock cylinder.
Try with the scanner, first.
But if you need some information let me know.
I'm a mechanic and have information for all Vehicles.
Thank you for use fixya....
