Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

I was driving my 1989 Dodge W350 with a 5.9liter gas engine, when the truck quit. I have nothing now when I turn the key on, but when the fourways are flashing my ignition buzzer and dashlights also flash. Any suggestions on where to start with this electrical problem?

SOURCE: ignition on jeep yj will not start engine. all

Before blaming the starter make sure the battery is fully charged. It should be around 13V.
Starter circuits for the most part operates in the following way. Turning the ignition key supplies power to a relay situated in the engine compartment which in turn activates the solenoid on the starter which powers the starter itself.
Make sure your vehicle is in Neutral(Manual gearbox) or Park(Auto box) Locate the starter motor. On the starter there is another cylinder like object called the solenoid. There is a thick red wire running from the battery connected to this. There is also a much thinner wire which activates the solenoid. To test the starter run a wire from the + on the battery to where the thin wire connects on the solenoid. (ignition must be off) This should activate the starter and turn the engine. If nothing happens the starter is probably at fault. Before removing the starter make sure that the engine is properly earthed as this could also give problems.
If the starter does kick in the problem is further "upstream" Most probable cause would be the relay. If you can locate it, replace since it is relatively cheap.
Starter repair is best left to the experts. Get a quote for a new starter before you have the old one repaired. You'd be surprised at how many times it turns out that replacement costs the same as repair.
Let us know if you've solved the problem.

Was driving my 97 dodge caravan, and it just quit on me, whats the problem?


If the check engine light is on do the following.

insert ignition key into the ignition.

turn the key as follows.

off-on, off-on, off-on. ( on is when the dash lights come on, off is one click back from on)

service codes will flash out in pairs of numbers on the check engine light. 5-5 is the end of the test.( the codes may display on the odometer if its digital) write down the codes and google the findings.

you may have just run out of gas ;-)

I have a 1999 ram 2500 with a 360 gas engine 70,000 miles. Driving down road quit. Spark at coil none at plugs, pulled dist cap rotor NOT turning when we rolled engine over with starter. Pulled distributor...


Something has sheared. Is there a pin on the distributor drive gear, are the gears on the cam and dist. shaft perfect / no flat spots at all, is there a keyway or key on the crank or cam gears that has sheared? Must be a weak point that was slipping somewhere.

1990 dodge dynasty 3.3 engine starts fine but a second later dies changed gas filter and fuel pump and regulator still don't stay started.


Same thing happened to my '89 Dynasty. Turns out the security system was engaged and this stops the motor from running; therefore. a thief cannot drive away with the car! The system is set by using the power locks or an autolock fob, but not by locking manually. Disconnecting the battery will also engage the security system. To disengage, close the driver or passenger (front) door and turn the key in the lock.
