Most Chrysler cars do have an anti-theft system that can cut out the engine.

I would call the service department, with your VIN handy, and see if yours was equipped with one, and what you need to reset it.

If that isn't the problem, your EGR valve might be bad, or the sensor for it. I've seen a lot of cars where if either the valve itself, or the sensor are malfunctioning, the car won't run properly.

I would also check your MAF and IAC, as those can cause the car to not run.

If you can, get an OBDII code scanner, and pull the codes from your car, they might give you a more specific place to look. (Most parts stores will let you take one home, you put a deposit down, and get it back when you bringthe scanner back to them)

Sounds like the timing belt broke. Unfortunately this vehicle was not equiped with no contact valves so if that is the case you will need to have the engine and Head rebuilt. If the crank position sensor can't sense the position of the crank it should shutdown the electrical to keep you from damaging your engine.

SOURCE: i have a 2004 kia rio manual trans. it will crank

Sounds like most of Kia problems...timing belt !
BEWARE that this is an "Interference Engine", meaning the valves and pistons "interfere" with each other and more than likely serious damage has already occurred.
If this is in fact the case engine will need to be rebuilt or replaced.
Good Luck!

SOURCE: 2004 Kia Optima no start after timing belt, crank, cam sensor replacement

did you use aftermarket crank sensor? if so that might be your problem. dealer has several different ones, by providing vin number, but there is only one after market for all optimas 01-05. try to connect thick pink wire and thick orange wire together on the ignition failure sensor. you might have the same problem as me. good luck.

Hi i have 90 model daihatsu feroza was running fine but all of a sudden started running really rough then not at all and now just backfires when try to start it,crank angle sensor maybe?


could be crank angle sensor or cam angle sensor or problem ignition control module
I am inclined to think wire problems to the sensors as they either work or not but bad wires or bad connections will make or break a circuit and the will cause the backfire situation
run the fault codes to find other possible causes

Switching off intermittently whilst driving over road ramps or halting at both traffic light and stop street.


If you get a code, that will likely tell you what to replace. Crank position sensor is one likely cause. Cam position sensor is another.

These sensors do go bad.

I have Nissan Exalta2000, it would power off all of a sudden while driving, the 4 icons on the dashborad lit up and if I stop tha car wont start. it happens 3 times and if I get a mechanic they cannot...


hello there, had to do some looking up as to what NISSAN EXALTA 2000 actualy is. i reside in USA and we do not have exalta on our streets. here, its a powertrain aka engine and transmission in a NISSAN SENTRA so it should be very similar to our sentra as far as setups except for different body. I think that you have an issue with the CRANK ANGLE SENSOR. i would start with replacing the sensor. is the SERVICE ENGINE SOON light on??? if so, that could be for many reasons and one of them would be crank angle sensor issue. nissan had problem with those sensors. they would cause the car to die. nissan had campaign / free replacement program in those model years of nissan sentra 2000 year model. have the crank sensor replaced. start there. like i said very common problem.

My 2000 impala will not start. I've had my starter, batt, & engine all replaced. I've begin to suspect my auto theif system as the reason its not starting after a lot of online research, but...


I had a Nissan doing this to me a little while ago, but couldn't figure out the problem. A couple weeks later, the lady told me she took the car to a shop and they replaced the crank and cam sensors. My bet is that it was the crank sensor.

MY CAR WONT START AND I AM BEING TOLD I MIGHT NEED A NEW CRANK SENSOR (NOT BY A MECHANIC) IS THERE ANY OTHER POSSIBLE REASON AND ARE CRANK SENSORS EXPENSIVE?


Hi, your crank sensor is about $60 at autozone, but there could be other reasons for the car not to start. If you'd like to do some troubleshooting, please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r5821173-doesnt_car_start_gasoline_engines . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with your engine size.

Hi the car starts for 1 second then shuts down, plenty of fuel, new plug leads, new plugs, new filter, could it be the crank angle sensor?


When the vehicle was last running was the check engine light on? I would check the Mass Air Flow sensor and the Throttle Position Sensor. Although they seldom go bad on this car, the idle air control valve could be bad/dirty as well.
Some late year '98's might have chipped keys, if the key or module is bad this could prevent the car form starting as well.

Turns over but no fire


youre p0300 code is radom miss fire,usually cause by bad wires or bad coil pack,p0304 indicates missfire at cylinder 4,cause bad wire or plug.p0335 indicates crank sensor circuit malfunction can cause all of the above,because its part of the timing position for the spark at the plugs,iwould check crank sensor if its within specs!

2004 Sonata stalls out for no reason then won't start


hi there, i have a 2003 sonata and my car did the same. it stalled and the engine light stayed on but managed to get going again. i took it to Hyundai and it was the crank angle sensor. it needed replacing at NZD180.00 with 3 hours labour to do it. evidently they remove the front of the engine and cam belt etc. the workshop at Hyundai did it and charged 3 hours, not sure if that was excessive or not.

Wont start


what is the code number?? you may need a new crank angle sensor. common problem. car will not start without crank angle sensor signal/input. find out what the code is and post. if code number you get is P0335, than install new crank angle sensor.
