    Hi AroundTownHandyman 804-384-3976, I want to help you with your problem, but I need more information from you. Can you please add details in the comment box?
    Can you list the codes in detail? Some codes set off the other codes and they are the root problem

    codes are p1128,p0455,p1582,p0303.p0506,p0300,p0301,p0302,p0725,p1857,p1850,p0304

    With that many codes I would be inclined to check the power supply relay, it is easiest to find the same relay and replace it. If that relay is good, then it looks like your crank sensor may be faulty. causing the engine to not start

  • AroundTownHandyman 804-384-3976

    it will start just wont stay running

  • AroundTownHandyman 804-384-3976

    do you know where that relay is

SOURCE: Engine cuts out and will not start again

As with any no start issue, you will need to find out if you are dealing with a no spark or no fuel problem to proceed.

97 3.9 dakota when it's cold outside and I start my truck it'll start right up but idle down til it quits . Start it again and it will idle.. Go down the road and it misses bad until it warms up. After it...


Here are the most common causes of idle surge, rough idle esp when cold and stalls at stops, slow idle speed, erratic idle speed, rough idle and engine hesitation (and other problems), it is in most cases the idle speed control air-bypass valve and or throttle valve and upper intake, these area's get full of gunk and combustion residue over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

Common issue on this year and engine, Do the cleaning outlined below.

Throttle Body Cleaning

You can in most cases repair this slow speed stall or unstable idle by cleaning the engine throttle valve and the idle speed control valve using a product called CRC Spray Throttle valve cleaner. Spray the cleaner into the air intake of the engine with the hose removed from the throttle body, the engine will try to stall so hold up the idle speed manually. Once you have used up about 1/2 can of the cleaner stall the engine out while spraying and turn the key off, disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and then reconnect and drive the car for a about 25 miles of varied driving modes. If this doesn't cure the problem you may need the fuel injectors professionally cleaned by the dealer service dept.

Check the battery cables. I had the same issues with my 96 tacoma, The battery cable connection at the battery can be cranked down but still be loose. Hard to explain, doesn't make sense, but just check it out.

Do you have the idle speed turned up to keep it from dying? Because it is high. Check engine light on? Have you checked for vacuum leaks at the gasket under the throttle body? How does the car run under acceleration? You might have a worn distributor shaft.
