Most Chrysler cars do have an anti-theft system that can cut out the engine.

I would call the service department, with your VIN handy, and see if yours was equipped with one, and what you need to reset it.

If that isn't the problem, your EGR valve might be bad, or the sensor for it. I've seen a lot of cars where if either the valve itself, or the sensor are malfunctioning, the car won't run properly.

I would also check your MAF and IAC, as those can cause the car to not run.

If you can, get an OBDII code scanner, and pull the codes from your car, they might give you a more specific place to look. (Most parts stores will let you take one home, you put a deposit down, and get it back when you bringthe scanner back to them)

2001 sebring convertible won't start or crank has lights and power but no radio tried #8 fuse but doesn't work


i have the 2.7 as well. mine is in an intrepid. Car was running perfectly fine when i went into bestbuy and when i came out 5 min later i tried to start the car and it would just crank n crank. no start though. eventually it started after lots of cranking. after a couple of times of doing this in order to start the car i would get nothing from the startrer. everything had power and everything electrical worked. found out that if i went under the car and hit the starter with a hammer a couple of times it would finally crank again. but i had to do this every time i shut the car off and wanted to start it again. i loive in WI and its wintyer right now so it really sucked to do this. took it to my buds shop and pulled the starter out and dissected it and found that the (i believe they are "brushes") were ground down to next to nothing, the positive ones, do to constant cranking. was going to get a starter from junk yard for 20 befor i knew what the problem was. did some calling around and found brand new brushes for $20.00. i just got those and installed them and had a good as new starter again. lots of dust to clean out of the housing though. brake fluid and air hose works wonders for that problem. but from best buy on the car would not start without starting fluid if it was at running temp. still yet to solve that one. replaced the cam sensor, crank sensor, plugs, COP's and checked the rest of the sensors. still cant figure this out. anyone have advice let me know what i can check. fuel pump kicks in wen the key turns as well...

you must use the cam gear for the cam sensor and the flex plate from your original engine. if you do that it will fire right up.

1997 Chrysler Sebring cut out while running, replaced fuel pumd, cranksensor, got used distributer from running car, then replaced the computer and it started!! but cuts out right away!at first would


See if resetting your ECC (ECM) called the computer will get rid of these problems. You do it by unhooking both battery cables, waiting at least 15 minutes and rehooking the battery. No security thing, only the fact the computer needs new settings for the parts you installed.

I have an 2001 oldsmobile alero that won't turn


Hi,

The first thing you should do, is check for battery power and ensure your instrument cluster lights come on when you turn your key to ON.

It's possible you have an issue with your starter motor, ignition switch or even the crank/cam sensor.

Have your diagnostic codes read by your local dealership or a mobile auto electrician, as this should immediately identify where the problem lies.

The cam sensor is supplied a reference voltage by the engine computer and the cam sensor should generate a signal back to the engine computer above 50 rpm of the engine cranking. The problem could be a faulty purchased cam sensor (yes this happens sometimes although rare) fwiring connector problem at cam sensor or faulty engine computer.

My gmc safari wont start. I was driving and it lost all power. would not start back up. replaced fuel filter and spark wires.


remove a plug wire. install a plug . lay it on the intake and have someone crank it while watching for spark. no spark. turn key on see if your fuel pump comes on . you should hear it. If not you could have one of two things bad.Ignition module which is inside dist or crank sensor by the crankshaft pulley. hope this helps. you can have the module tested at oreillys or auto zone.
