The relays are prone to failure. They can be switched for trouble shooting. Fuel pump relay is a good start for not starting. I keep a couple of relays in the glove box of my Dakota for failure on the road.

These are two different problems . The engine not starting could be crank/cam position sensor/s Check that the cam shaft is turning ( broken timing belt/chain). Check that the connecting cable you are using is in fact connecting to the right pins in the data link socket . There are several different set ups

SOURCE: We are unable to communicate with the emissions computer

Yes it is the purple connector. Any generic OBD II scan tool should be able to pull up P codes. Sometimes you will get an enhanced DTC and no code will be given. If there is a shop in your area with a Launch X431 scan tool I'd go to them and have it scanned. Any Auto Zone can scan it for you to. Also I have never had a problem scanning any VW with an aftermarket stereo. Is your MIL on? If it isn't on I don't know why they would want to run a scan for the safety inspection.

Up to 99 or 2000 model maxima's arent OBD II. There is a OBD I connector located behind the fuse box cover inside the car. It is a grey connector.

SOURCE: 99 dodge durango pcm and connectors heat up causing the vehicle..

it would be best if you took it to a dealer and left a mechanic take it home over night,that way he can have the Chrysler drb hooked up when the problem presents its self.

My 2002 dodge stratus ran hot lost pressure of a hose and want crank after repair


Well you need a few things for an engine to run. Spark , Fuel, and Air..to start. Assuming that the plugs are the correct ones, and all the wires are connected properly & that the distributor cap was installed properly (AND SET IN TIME correctly). I would have to lean towards maybe a warped head. But there a quite a few variables that need to be eliminated before you can really begin to start down the road with a diagnosis. Good Luck

97 dodge stratus 2.4 ,testing a camsensor


Have you had the ignition switch changed? If the ignition switch is faulty you can have issues getting the car to turn over. Also when driving the car can just shut off. The contacts in the ignition switch just wear out over time. It's a good place to start looking.
