Question about 1996 Dodge Ram 2500 Club Cab

1 Answer

Died instantly at intersection, will turn over but wont start

Towed home, 2 ft of snow lst nite, this am tried to start, will turn over but again no start. Check engine lite now comes on. No problem prior to this. 70k miles. Maybe crank sensor? Maybe coil? Where is the pcm located? Best way to troubleshoot this? Battery is good. Full fuel. Tried to start in neutral..nada. Check engine lite goes off when cranking the engine....battery is now getting tired..have to charge it tomorrow. Kinda stranded as other car cannot navigate snow. Do not have pressure kit for fuel but dont think it is that...should I hear the fuel pump when I turn on the ignition? Maybe computer tells the fuel not to work if no crank information...I dont know just guessing. I do have a ohm meter and a digital meter. Help

My 2007 GMC Yukon will not start in cold weather. When I turn the key over the lights/dash controls come on, but the engine does not turn over at all. Nothing. Put a new battery in and still does it. It is a random occurance. Would not start for two days this week so I had it towed to the dealership and the next morning it starts without the service dept doing anything??? Bring it home and two days later it does it again??? Any ideas?

Engine will not start

Most likely the fuel pump has failed, check the pressure while someone cranks the engine over.
