ok means that you dont have spark plug explotion on 1 or more cylinders and that means miss fire.
Disconnect the battery like 20 or 30 min and then connect the battery again and start the car, then drive and scan again, if you have same code you can do this:
1. take off your O2 sensor and test check if there is wrong change it because maybe that is the problem of all!
2. take off your spark plugs and put new ones.
if not work... do this.
reset your ecu (like I say before)
take your ignition coil #6 and change the place with another one on the same head side.
assambly and go to test if the DTC change like hummm example: Ignition coil #4 then or any other, then you know that the problem is your ignition coil.
if not work this... do this..
take off your ignition coil from the spark plug but still plug to the harnes (the ignition that is failing) and then take the ignition coil closer to Ground (another metal) and then start the car you need to see how the elctricity (not know how to say) "energy" jumps from the coil to the graund many times
if not are any energy jump you need to do this...
check the harnes like maybe that is the problem the question here is do you have voltage in the harness?
hope this help you.

sounds like the distributor may be faulty and the timing is out.try moving the distributor.loosen off the lock bolt on the base and move it slightly.mark the original spot first.The other thing is make sure the plugs are the right type.platinum plkugs will not run in some engines.
the spark gap for the 5.2 is on the label under the hood.

I have this same NO START problem...
Began with tach giving readings not exceding 1200 rpm with strange 4000 + spikes.. Cruse control would not turn on or off at times and indicator light would only work sometimes..Had several episodes of excessive cranking to get it to start.. Stalling out while driving and even at freeway speeds.. Pulling the negative cable for 10 min. allowed it to start although with lots of cranking and put it in limp mode which required another computer reset to get out of.. Had thrown error codes related to cam and crank sensors which were replaced along with coil and manifold temp sensors.. Had the 9 volt power to sensors when key was on but the check engine light does not stay on with all the other idiot lights..
I wish people who respond would read the post first..
Original post states,
Cranks,No spark,No fuel pump run, changed some sensors ect...
If it cranks it ain't the neutral safety switch, starter or battery!! WAKE UP!!
Seems the computer is not turning on the coil, injectors or fuel pump for a reason.. Find that reason and you will find the solution to the problem.. Seeing as that the computers logic states are a dealer secrete the poster as I have changed many parts in blind hope that it will fix the problem.. Relays, sensors and ecu computer.. Did a visual check of all harness potential wear spots like where it crosses over the power rack..
Could it be in the wiring harness inside the dash??
Could it be a bad ground??
Can an alternator that has failed cause the computer not to start??
Can a bad oil pressure sensor cause the computer not to start??
Can signal loss from the TCU or BCU to the ECU cause this??
Is there an undocumented kill if the ECU thinks it was in an accident??
I can ground the relay line from the ECU and the fuel pump runs and pressures up and the other relays turn on as well..
This crank but no start problem seems to be common with a lot of 1994-2001 Dodge and Chrysler owners.. All these systems have become interlaced with undocumented safety features that baffle the DIYer..If you have seen this and have fixed it PLEASE RESPOND!!!!
