SOURCE: need to reset the fuel pump on a 1997 dodge ram van

The only way to reset the system is to disconnect battery cables for 10 minutes and before connecting the cables touch together to completely make sure there is no power left in the system

SOURCE: please help

had the same problem in mine we found it was the cam shaft positioning sensor. my van had shut off and we had no current to plugs and at first thought coil pack but still nothing. no power to coil pack. then found sensor no good. also we replaced the sensor with an after market sensor and worked fine for couple months then started to shut off again. after a little research found we needed original cam shaft pos sen from dealer and since then no problems. hope this works for you.

Sadly, there is no "magic fixit" button on your vehicle.
Standard diagnostic procedures include:
  1. Replace the fuel filter. (Go ahead, just do it... likely your issue);
  2. Check fuel pressure at the fuel rail. If fuel pressure is inadequate or varies, begin by replacing the fuel pressure regulator. Also, verify operation of the fuel pump and make sure the fuel intake strainer in the gas tank is free of debris;
  3. Your fuel may be contaminated, especially if you have been using ethanol blend fuel. Replace all fuel in the system with ethanol-free fuel if possible. If you cannot find ethanol-free fuel, use a FUEL SYSTEM WATER REMOVER with each fill-up;
  4. Check for adequate spark. If spark is inadequate, troubleshoot the ignition system. Perform a major tune-up, including new spark plug wires and coil pack(s).

Vehicle missing and intermittent non starting Nissan Pulsar

Hi, when you turn the ignition to start that the engine turning not at all. If your car engine turning but do not pick up. There is only this three things can start your car.
1- Fuel
2- Spark
3- Compression.
If you have fuel look for spark, If you have spark look for fuel, if you have both do compression test.
If no spark check your leads or coil packs
if no fuel check your filter is not block it or fuel pump.
If your engine is not turning at all check your battery or your starter.
Give more information do you have pack coil for each plugs or loose plugs wires.

The engine is turning over like it is going to start but doesnt. Already replaced the coil pack, and checked the fuel pump and its switch, and the fuel line. What might the problem be?

Hello, There is a safety switch called an Inertia switch which works on impact. Sometimes the switch will work when a door or rear cargo hatch is slammed at a frequency duplicating an impact.
This switch is called an Inertia switch and it is located on the passengers side by the kick panel and usually just above the carpet. There is a red button which needs to be pushed down to reset it.

If this is one of the switches you have checked, then you need to determine if this is a spark problem or fuel problem again. There should be an Ignition relay which supplies power to the coil pack. You should be able to get a power reading going into the coil pack. You might try using starting fluid to see if the engine will even hit.

If the engine does not start or hit, then several of the relays in the Powerbox are identical and a horn relay may have the same part number as a PCM or Ignition relay. You can get the engine running without a horn or buy an extra relay for testing.

You did not mention having a "check engine" light activated. You could try to disconnect the TPS, throttle position sensor which is on the airhorn. Use an Ohmmeter on the TPS side of the connection, and test resistance when the throttle is moved. If this part is dead, then it is why your Explorer does not run.

I hope my Solutions are very helpful to you. You can get a free scan once your get your Explorer running, at Autozone, Oreillys, and Advance. You may need to wipe the computer after changing the parts anyway and they will do that. If you do not have an Ohmmeter, just take the TPS in for a test at the autoparts places.

Chevorlet express 1500 want turn over

Hello and welcome to FixYa!
Please do check the battery if it's fully charged. If it's not, have it charged for if it's weak there will be insufficient current for the starter to kick the flywheel.
If it still fails even the battery is fully charged then the problem can be on the starter, ignition coil or ignition switch. I strongly suggest that you have it looked at for this will require an on hand trouble shooting by an expert mechanic.
Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

I was driving and it just died,we now found we do not have any spark on driver side,can you tell me what it may be,or what we should try to fit will not turn over.Thank you sherry

No spark.This is indication of faulty spark plugs.But spark plugs get power to spark from coil pack. So get the connection between coil pack to spark plugs checked.If it checked out ok then its faulty spark plugs that has to be replaced,but if coil pack has no power then its faulty coil pack that has to be replaced.But if coil pack and spark plugs both checked out ok then this problem is fuel related problem.In this case the fuel pressure needs to be checked.The fuel pressure can be easily checked at any local car garage.If its low then its faulty fuel pump as well as clogged fuel filter,which has to be replaced. The voltage for spark plugs and coil pack in voltmeter will show 12 volts.Its a 12 volt part.If there is no or low volt then there is problem with the part. ------------------ Keep updated with any more queries.Thanks.

1997 dodge ram won't start. My fuel pump does not run and coil won't spark. Iv'e checked fuses and relays and they look fine. Could a bad fuel pump cause the asd to kill power to the coil?

First check any ignition/fuel related fuses. Check to make sure you have 12 volts coming into the pump and coil. If nothing to the fuel pump replace the fuel pump relay - if you do have power to the fuel pump then replace the pump. If nothing is coming to the coil it is either an ignition relay or a wiring issue. If you have 12 volts to the coil but no spark then replace the coil.
Also the fuel pump/relay would not kill the coil.

I hit something in the road and it put a hole in my oil pan, I had the oil pan replaced,but the car still wouldn't start replaced batery and the car would crank but still won't stat. My car is a 97 Dodge...

sometimes vehicles are equipped with an inertia switch wich means that when you hit something or the car has a big impact, that switch will shut off the fuel pump...

i know for a fact that on ford models they are located in the trunk on the right side...

you should check for that first and if you have one just press the button to reset...

Starting problems 1 out of 5 starts quiting and starting again

Check the connector to the coil pack/module. For wire connector on my 3.3L coil pack was not making a consistent connection and might have been corroded due to a bad connection. Also see if you are getting spark by pulling your front spark plug and grounding it to the cylinder head to see if you are getting spark all the time. Mine was hit n miss. I got lucky to have found this problem. If you are not getting any rpm on the tach what so ever during engine crank, change the crankshaft sensor. I changed the coil pack and crankshaft sensor prior to finding the connector was bad. Little over $100.00 but sensor was bad anyways.
