Question about 1999 Dodge Durango

2 Answers

Engine turns over but wont start. You can hear thr fuel pump come on. Is it electrical? Could it be battery, fuse, or loose wire?

Battery is weak. Even tried fuel in thr fuel injected carburetor. Keeps turning over but doesn't fire. Sounds normal when turning over. Not faster or choking out.

Before replacing the crankshaft position sensor check the ASD relay in the under hood power dist. center ! this relay powers the ignition coil an the fuel injectors an the O2 sensors !

This sounds like the crank shaft sensor is bad. The sensor sends a signal to the computer about when to fire the coils for spark.

    The ASD runs the fuel pump. If you hear the pump, it is not the ASD.http://troubleshootmyvehicle.com/chrysle...

Does the fuel system operate off the battery and how will i know if its the battery or the fuel pump


Does the starter spin the engine normally when you turn the key to the start position ? Do the headlamps shine bright ? If any of these work correctlly the battery is fine . If the engine turns over normally an doesn't start an run it doesn't mean the fuel pump is bad either .There could be any number of thing's wrong , testing first electrical circuits of igintion system , fuel system . Hooking up a fuel pump pressure gauge , pull a plug wire an check for spark . I'd say your best bet would be to take your to a qualified repair shop before you replace parts you don't need .

WONT START HAS A NEW FUEL PUMP BATTERY IS GOOD


Is there spark coming from plugs . Electronic ignition? Check fuse box for blown fuses .
Pull a wire out from spark plug and place it near the plug. Start engine while someone else watches if there is spark going ( do not handle wire when doing this ) if new pump it has to be primed before use .

Why won't my car start? It was running last night.


Try start the car again when it is completely dry, if it starts the rain may be short circuiting something on the loom in the engine bay.

If it still wont start,

will it turn over? (car tries to start)
- If it wont turn over the battery would be dead

- If it turns over but wont burst into life then we can go from there ^_^

Sounds like battery or battery cable problems to me.
If the battery is bad, you cannot trust ANYTHING the computer is telling you. They tend to set all kinds of codes when the battery has a shorted cell. (including fuel pump circuit and transmission system codes) They get "delirious" from malnutrition. You need to have your charging/starting system thoroughly tested.

  1. Check fuel level in fuel tank, add fuel if empty.
  2. Check battery condition and state of charge. If voltage and load test below specification, charge or replace battery.
  3. Check battery terminal and cable condition and tightness. Clean terminals and replace damaged, worn or corroded cables.
  4. Check fuel delivery system. If fuel is not reaching the fuel injectors, check for a loose electrical connector or defective fuse, relay or fuel pump and replace as necessary.
  5. Engine may have excessive wear or mechanical damage such as low cylinder cranking pressure, a broken camshaft drive system, insufficient valve clearance or bent valves.
  6. Check for fuel contamination such as water in the fuel. During winter months, the water may freeze and cause a fuel restriction. Adding a fuel additive may help, however the fuel system may require draining and purging with fresh fuel.
  7. Check for ignition system failure. Check for loose or shorted wires or damaged ignition system components. Check the spark plugs for excessive wear or incorrect electrode gap. If the problem is worse in wet weather, check for shorts between the spark plugs and the ignition coils.
  8. Check the engine management system for a failed sensor or control module.

Gmc sub wont start 1996


It sounds like the fuel pump. You may still be able to hear the pump, but it needs to produce a lot of pressure. If it is weak it won't do the job.
