Question about 1999 Dodge Intrepid

1 Answer

1999 intrepid just stopped. Tried to start but wouldn't. Ok, I disconnected the cam positioning sensor and the car started and runs. It takes about 5 seconds of cranking because the crankshaft sensor needs to find the signal. The car lopes at high rpms. As long as the cam sensor is disconnected it runs but as soon as I connect it it won't start.

    Hi, I put in a new crank and cam sensor and it still does the same thing. When I jiggle the cam sensor connector the fuel pump

    relay clicks on.

    Thanks for the help. I replaced both the cam sensor AND

    the crank sensor but it still will not start if I plug in the

    cam sensor. Also, if I plug in the cam sensor and turn

    the key to the on position and jiggle the cam sensor

    connector, the fuel pump relay clicks.

    What do you think?

I have a 98 Intrepid with a 2.7 engine. It was driving fine on Thursday night. Went to leave for work Friday morning and it wouldn't start. So far, we have tried a new battery, had the started tested,

The 2.7 had alot of problems with the cam sensor. I would start there. Its located on the front top of the timing cover. Unplug it and see if it "Pops" attempts to start.

Engine will not stay running getting codes p0122,p1496,p0405,and1684 changed throl. position sensor 1999 dodge intrepid 2.7 engine

Unhook the TPS connect a volt meter between the purple wire and a good ground. Key on engine off. If it reads 5v then replace TPS. If not the leave meter hooked up and unplug the MAP (front of engine on upper intake). If meter now reads 5v then replace MAP. If not then hook up that plug and unhook the EGR (back top of engine under the throttle body). Check and if need repeat with the A/C press. transducer (3 wire sensor in A/C hose near compressor). All of these share a sensor feed from the PCM. the most likly problem is a short in the MAP but a short in any of these sensors can cause the problem you describe.

I think my crank sensor or something is gone. engine wont fire, no spark coming from coil pack. new coilpack. How do I resolve?

May be I can help.Be sure to check all fuses,really good,before replacing parts.I can`t tell you how to check for problem,you have pretty much narrowed it down already,but replace the crank sensor first(least expensive) cause it is most likely the problem.Then really all you are left with is cam sensor,or control module.The car will most likely will run,and run good if the cam sensor is bad,but it will not start.If the car stopped running while engine was running,then the cam sensor most likely isn`t the problem,replace the control module.IIf the engine was not running,and you went to start it and it wouldn`t start,try a cam sensor.If I can help any more,let me know>>

Vehicle stalls sometimes

could be either the cam sensor or crank sensor , but I would check the crank sensor first , this sensor will not cause a check engine light either
