Could possibly be the anti theft system. This system can actually turn off your fuel injectors 1-5 seconds after starting. http://vatspasslockpasskeysecurityhelp.yolasite.com/

To start with, stop using the spray because this is not good for a fuel injected vehicle and you can cause damage to the valves if you continue to do so. Carbs were different in the old days. OK, you may have just caused the fuel pump to try and work a little harder due to being out of gas. There is a fuel cut off switch that will "pop" if you are in an accident or there is an electrical overload. that switch is located in the cargo area od the vehicle. below is a picture of its location for you and the button is on top. Just push it in. If it is "pooped" you will be able to tell for sure when you push it in. Also you may want to check the fuse for the fuel pump motor itself. that fuse is located in the fuse panel under the hood of the vehicle in the engine compartment. The fuse is located in the number 5 position and should be a 15 amp fuse (diagram of fuse layout below). And last is to check the fuel pump relay as well. the relay is located in that same fuse panel and is in the number 207 position. You can check if it is engaging by putting your finger on it and having someone tur the key just to the "on"position (no need to turn the vehicle over as it will engage for 3 - 5 seconds when the key is turned on). You will feel it "click" if it does with your finger. One other thing is if any of these are the problem, you should first prime the fuel system before trying to start the vehicle. this is done by again turning the vehicle key to the "on" position only, wait for 3 - 5 seconds then to the off positiom, turn the key back to the "on" position agian for the same amount of time. Do this several times so the fuel system will build back pressure before trying to start the vehicle. OK, I'm done. I hope this helps and you get going again. Good luck.

If it was running yesterday and only cranks this morning you need to determine which you are missing - spark or fuel. The spark is easy - pull a plug and let it spark to the frame. while cranking. If you have spark then you have to start checking the fuel system.

this can be tough one to find, as you know if it does not act up wile it is in the shop then we cant find the problem, but i have seen this one before, under the hood there is a fues relay box on the left side of the engine compartment, the next time the van acts up tap on this box and see if the engine starts, on the bottom of this box is a power control unit, we see these things go bad allot, this unit controls the power for the fuel pump circuit and if it fails to power up the pump then of course the engine will start on the fuel that is in the line then stall and not restart intill the thing kicks on the pump again, this unit also controles many other things it is a computer that controls the ground circuits for the relays that are in the box that is on top of it. if it starts after tapping on it then replace it, there is a prt # ans a calabration # on the unit you can take these #'s and go to a salvage yard and find one that matches the #'s on yours. if after tapping on this unit it still does not start, test for power at the plug in at the top of the fuel tank to see if there is 12 volts at the dark green/white wire wile you are cranking the engine if there is not power it most likely is still the power unit under the hood....good luck

let me know if there is any thing else i can i do for you.

Car cranks but won't start, battery ok all systems seem to be ok any ideas?


Try having someone check to see if the fuel pump has stopped working. I suddenly developed the same problem as yours three days ago, and that's what heppened to mine. They go without warning or prior symptoms, it seems.

HARD TO START


To clarify, the engine cranks and starts. If it cranks but won't start until 4 or 5 tries, I would check the fuel pressure before and after the first attempt. The check valve in the pump may be faulty and allowing the fuel to flow back to the tank when it is not running. The pump only gets power for the first 3 seconds during crank time until the engine starts.

It sure could be. But, first...by "won't turn over" you do mean it cranks at normal speed but won't start?
A simple test of the fuel pump is to stand by tank and listen as someone turns key to on. When first turned to on, your pump will activate for 2 or 3 seconds, pressurizing the fuel system, and then shut off if the engine computer doesn't get a cranking signal. Do you hear it come on? If not, then something's not turning your pump on. If you can hear it buzz on briefly, then maybe it's your filter. Another test: Spray a little starting fluid into your intake manifold (remove the big hose going into intake manifold) while someone tries starting it.If it doesn't fire and try to stay running, then it's probably an ignition problem. But if it does fire off, then you know it's a fuel problem-likely your pump or filter. good luck.

It won't die when pulling the relay because it has another power path to the fuel pump through the oil pressure switch . Fuel Pump Electrical Circuits Description and Operation watch this video on fuel pump control , shows chrysler first , ford ,then gm . wait for gm an he explains the oil pressure switch . Plus when it won't start ,don't guess or theorize ! Test what's missing ? check for spark , no spark check ignition system , coil's , ignition module , crank sensor etc... has spark ,do a fuel pressure test etc... don't think computer , when it won't start does the check engine light come on with the key on run not start . If light is lit ,nothing wrong with the cumputer . If want to fix cars you really should take some automotive classes . Test don't guess .Watch some other videos crank no start videos etc...

You don't say what engine is in it (2.7 or a 3.2) but you need to check to see if it is getting spark at the plugs-it may be the crank sensor, weak links in Chryslers of this era. pull a plug just to be certain it is getting gas, but I'd guess it is a crank sensor.
