1994 Dodge Dakota V6. Intermittant starting problem then finally stopped starting at all. Thought it was the fuel pump as I wasn't getting any pressure on the fuel rail when checked. $180+ later found the fuel pump wasn't getting power. Had already checked the relays and fuses...everything good there. Ignition switch is new, could it be the Engine Control module??

Have you checked the distributor? When checking for the spark do you pull out one end of the high tension wire (the one connected to the spark plug )and watch (be careful with this one) if there are sparks coming of the end of the high tension wire? If there are none there check out the distributor it may have gone bad or wiring, specifically the ground connector if they are loose or had been disconnected.

If there are sparks in the high tension check the fast idle control valve and the PCV if they need cleaning and the vacuum tubes if there are leaks

immobilizer inoperative
problem ignition control module
failed coil/s ECM fault

1995 dodge dakota v6 will not start began to run rough spit sputter. replaced cam sensor no change .tried changing ign coil no change. checked pwr to coil at plugin no pwr used a voltage meter checked...


If you have no power to the coil with key on, it might be the crank sensor. The spit and sputter ckould be a fuel problem, but if you have no spark now, check the crank sensor.

2000 318 ram van wont start new ecm sensors got spark gas


If you are getting spark to the plugs and fuel spray, and you have compression and the spark is at the right time, you should have explosion.
Is it possible the valve timing is off - timing chain issues ?
Are the new plugs fuel-fouled ?

Yes I have heard of it a few times on this site and it most often wiring harness related, bad branch out splices. Of course the PCM (ECM on earlier models) contains the ignition control module so it is also a suspect part.

Died while driving


while engine is running grab the wire harness that leads into the distributor housing with a pair of needle nose pliers and wiggle the wires!!
if the engine stumbles or stalls that is your prob!!!
go to parts store and get a magnetic pickup assembly!!
i think they call it something else but its the same concept, just different because it's a dodge thing!!!

1991 Dodge dakota dies for no reason on hwy and smells flooded


Could be a couple of different sensors. MAP, oxygen, crank, or cam sensors to name a few. You will need to have it checked out on a computer to find out what it is doing for sure though.
