94dodge Dakota won't start


if the truck has a tach watch it when it wont start. if the tach goes up when rollin over the sensor is fine. check for switchin at the coil with a test lite. the coil is a common failure especially if its all swollen and rusted.

I have a 96 Dodge Ram 1500. Cranks and runs fine but after it warms up it dies. After cooling off its as if nothing is wrong til it warms up again then dies and wont crank. Talked with one person that said...


I don't know what testing you have done? When it stalls if it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs, if spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, check fuel injector pulse. If your missing all three, I usually check the cam and crank sensors. There could be other issues? Any applicable trouble codes?

I have a 1978 dodge 440 in a motorhome and the engine turns over but as soon as I let off the starter it dies. It seems like its not getting power to the engine?


It could be many things so start with the easiest /cheaper first.Check your plugs , they will tell allot...white= too lean .black and/or wet =too rich .. clean and gap If your coil is old and not sparking hot enough it will sputter and stall . If your ground to the ignition is loose or corroded , same result. If the motor has noit been run for a long time ; replace spoark plug wires , coil , pioints, rotor , cap ( just replace the distributor with electronic etc.) . Put in fresh fuel (gas goes bad) and filter.You might run some carb cleaner or rebuild the carb , your start /idle jets might be plugged.Check all vacume conections , cracked or loose hose equals too lean to run when cold. If all else fails loosen the distributor and swivel small increments back and forth until it lights. Oh yeah , if your alternator is not putting out the motor will kinda start then die beause the battery cannot keep up.
Good luck

Need to know how to hard wire ignition module


Ford has substantially altered their 1978-86 electronic ignition test procedure. Due to the sensitive nature of the system and the complexity of the test procedures, it is recommended that you refer to your dealer if you suspect a problem in your 1978-86 electronic ignition system. The system can, of course, be tested by substituting known good components (module, stator, etc.)

This system, which at first appears to be extremely complicated, is actually quite simple to diagnose and repair. Diagnosis does, however, require the use of a voltmeter and an ohmmeter. You will also need several jumper wires with both blade ends and alligator clips.

The symptoms of a defective component within the solid state system are exactly the same as those you would encounter in a conventional system. Some of these symptoms are:
- Hard or no starting - Rough idle - Poor fuel economy - Engine misses while under load or while accelerating
If you suspect a problem in your ignition system, first perform a spark intensity test to pinpoint the problem. Using insulated pliers, hold the end of one of the spark plug leads about 1 / 2 inch; (12.7mm) away from the engine block or other good ground, and crank the engine. If you have a nice, fat spark, then your problem is not in the ignition system. If you have no spark or a very weak spark, then proceed to the following tests.

Tell if you are talking about this ignition system...
