Question about 1992 Dodge Shadow

1 Answer

My 92 Dodge Shadow's engine will not turn over.

Then lights come on the dash when I turn the key and I can hear the AC running but I get nothing from the engine. Tries to turn over but will not even if I push the accelerator. The battery is only a few months old. Not sure if it is the alternator, starter or if the cables and posts on the battery just need a good cleaning. Upon visual inspection the battery posts look clean. Oil level is good. Any ideas anyone?

Ignition switch on dodge dynasty?


I had a similar problem years ago. As long as your dash lights come on, it's likely you can use an external pushbutton switch to run the starter. There are likely just 4 wires on the ignition switch. Power from the battery, and switched to:
accessories
main car stuff (dash lights, ignition, signals, etc)
starter.
splice in wires from battery and starter to new switch, and you're good to go. This worked for years on my old car.

I CAN PUT THE KEY IN AND TURN NO NOTHING NO DASHBOARD NO POWER TO THE WINDOWS


Does the engine crank at all? Can you hear the clicking of the starter solenoid? Have you checked your battery?

If the battery is fine and the engine won't crank and your dash lights and windows are dead, I'm guessing ignition switch.

2002 Intrepid. Turn the key and hear one click. Dash lights come on but hear nothing else.


Do a quick check on battery, get someone to watch the headlights turn them on and then turn the key to the start position, if the lights go out then your battery is either completely discharged or has gone bad.

Got a 92 dodge Dakota i have problems starting it, when i try to turn the truck on it wont fire over but if i leave the key to the run position it takes about 10 minutes before i can hear the relay start...


Check the Auto Shutdown Relay (ASD) in engine power distribution box (left inner fender-under hood)
You should hear fuel pump for 15 sec after you turn on key

92 honda civic turns over fine but doesnt start


ok, this is a commom problem with this 92 hondas,

it may be the pump fuel relay, which is under the dash on the driver side by the fuse panel.

here is a way to determine that.

when you turn the key on the on position

do you hear the fuel pump running while the engine light is on, and does the pump stop running afteer the engine light goes off?

if you do hear the pump running then it means that fuel pump is working fine ( since it way just replaced), but if you don't hear it running while the check engine light is on ( about 2 seconds) chances are the fuel pump relay is not working as it should.


also there are clicks that have to be heard on the starting process.

1 when you turn key to on possition

2 when the check engine light goes off( a click has to be heard just after it goes off)

3 after the car starts

If you don't hear this clicks, try to get your ear close the location of the fuel pump relay( near the fuse panel under the dash).


the fuse relay is just a bunch of circuits soldered, so you can get it to someone who knows how to solder and fix it.

or just get a replacement one at any junkyard. ( cheapp)
