The EATX SHUTDOWN RELAY makes a tapping sound and the engine will not start.
Also, sounds like the fuel pump is making noise.
The starter now doesn't even engage, as if it's not getting the signal to do so. (The starter is "new" (i.e., less than 2000 miles from Mopar.) The starter was working fine this morning until the relay and fuel pump started making noise, as well as the engine light started flashing.
Lots of problems. I think it stems from one issue (I hope). Hopefully it's organized enough to give some pointers.

SOUND LIKE PROBLEM IN EITHER ASD AUTO MATIC SHUTDOWN RELAY OR FUEL PUMP RELAY LOCATED UNDER THE HOOD INNER FENDER PANEL NEAR BATTERY OR LOCATED NEAR SHOCK TOWER..IF ALL IS GOOD.FUEL FILTER BEEN CHANGED.NO SOUND FROM FUEL PUMP.BEFORE BUYING ANOTHER FUEL PUMP SCAN VECHICLE FOR A FAULTY PCM.IT CONTROL FUEL PUMP RELAY AND FUEL PUMP.
When you shut the engine off then it was not out of gas and there is a fuel fuse in the fuse panel and a fuse relay in the engine compartment. The fuse and relay box is always near the battery. It sounds like by the information I gathered so far is the fuel pump was sucking most of bottom gas which is always dirty gas and probably plugged the fuel filter. Make sure the to have someone listen if the fuel pump works by listening under the fuel tank while the ignition is turned on but not the starter.
1. Listen for a humming noise near the tank while someone turns the key on.
2. If the fuel pump makes is on then its your fuel filter.
3. If no sound then its your fuel pump. Start with the fuses then your relays and if they are all in working then its time to change your fuel pump.
( note: sometimes its just the way the car is sitting and tilting where all the fuel is unreachable for the pump and you might have to put more gas.) Hope this works. Cam
The fuel pump will not have anything to do with the engine turning over,but it will have to do with the engine not starting,and running,the starter on these have problems,they have contacts,instead of brushes,so you can tap lightly on them with a hammer while you try and start it,and it might start,and then replace the starter,if this was helpful,please let us know ,please rate thank you.
