SOURCE: 97 Dodge Ram Pick up cranks ok engine won't run

try checking all the ground circuits comming out of the PCM. and its also not common for a ground driver in the PCM to fail on dodges. also i have seen crankshaft sensors short out and take out pcm communication. so i would start by unplugging any sensor that runs off the 5v supply until the pcm wil talk to the scanner. if you unplug a sensor and communication returns to scanner then replace the sensor. and dont forget to check for good power and ground at the data link conector and PCM

If you disconnect the Cam sensor with key on or engine running then you will get a Cam sensor code,If you disconnect and the vehicle runs yes you will get a Cam code (because its disconnected it will state Cam sensor high),If your vehicle has jump timing belt you will also get a MAF code. You may want to get the MAF check out,For now review your timing markscansmo_219.gifcansmo_220.gif

Cam sensor unplugged engine starts


Does not make sense because it is the signal from the cam sensor regarding engine revs that allows the computer to make timing changes, firing plugs, fuel mixture, etc.

And if the car starts without it, it must run for sh**. Might have a bad ECU.

No, the sensor apparently never was the problem. But I think you need to revisit the cam sensor code-it's telling you something. About all you have to go on at this point, although I think eventually you may want to check the fuel pressure. That is one thing the computer doesn't monitor, and a common problem with hard starting.

The reason for a camshaft sensor is so the computer can synchronize injector pulsing with the intake valves opening. So it's crucial that it works right. There is a magnet, or something like that-never saw a Kia- on the cam that the cam sensor picks up a signal from, and relays it to the computer via the cam sensor circuit. Something is still wrong with that same code being set. Don't shoot the messenger again, go at it full throttle-find the problem.

YOU NEED TO CHECK DARK GREEN/ORANGE WIRE AT IGNITION COIL WHEN CRANKING ENGINE FOR POWER..IF NO POWER,SHUTDOWN RELAY IS NOT BEING ENERGIZED..THIS ENGINE ALSO HAS CAMSHAFT POSITION SENSOR ON END OF CYLINDER HEAD..ENGINE CONTROLLER NEEDS CAM AND CRANK SIGNALS TO ENERGIZE THE SHUTDOWN RELAY..UNPLUG CRANK SENSOR AND CHECK VOLTAGE ON ORANGE WIRE..SHOULD HAVE APPROX 8V..IF NOT..UNPLUG CAM SENSOR AND SEE IF 8V SUPPLY RETURNS..IF NO POWER TRY UNPLUGGING VEHICLE SPEED SENSOR LOCATED IN TRANS HOUSING WHERE RIGHT SIDE AXLE COMES OUT OF TRANS..IF 8V RETURNS..THE SPEED SENSOR IS SHORTED INTERNALLY..THESE 3 SENSORS SHARE THE SAME 8V SUPPLY CIRCUIT..WITH SPEED SENSOR UNPLUGGED,PLUG CRANK SENSOR BACK IN AND TRY TO START ENGINE..HAVE SEEN THIS SAME PROBLEM AT WORK RECENTLY

CAMSHAFT SENSOR


when you unplug the cam sensor it runs?what that mean is that most likely your sensor is bad..reason for that is when your cam sensor is out you unplug it...it will run because it forces the computer to get a reading/signal from the crankshaft sensor or somewhere else like that..and when you plug it in it is getting a bad reading from the cam sensor wich will cause it not to run..so my advise is your cam sensor is bad..
