Question about 1999 Dodge Intrepid

Open Question

Is PCM is bad on 99 intrepid?

I need testing information for a PCM. I have a 1999 dodge intrepid that periodically quits with no trouble codes. I have 400 ma DC to the coils while starting and running but it goes to zero when the engine quits which is before the shut down relay engages (800 ms later). I have constant fuel pressure and all injectors have Noid lights. The PCM has been replaced with a rebuild unit from Florida about 6 month ago. I have previously received a PCM from the same company for this car that had one injector with no Noid light right after installation. I requested a different unit and it was sent out right away. I suspect the replacement PCM had gone bad.

Hello.. looks like you are getting good fuel delivery. Is the fuel curve mixture on the scanner in specs? How is the timing, the timing chains on these engines will stretch and throw the timing off causing a ping and missfire -- a weak valve spring is something to consider. Also, the PCM may be faulty. I hope this helps.

Is there a diagram from a evap circuit for a 2004 intrepid 3.5L HO

this code is related more to an electrical condition...
there is a series of tests to do to track this one down.

When Monitored: The ignition on or engine running. Battery voltage greater than 10
Set Condition: The PCM will set a trouble code if the actual state of the solenoid does not
match the intended state.

How do you test the Pcm module?

cannot test without special equipment at the factory. There are certain trouble codes and indications that point to a bad PCM. You can also open a PCM to check for burned components. Why do you want to test yours?

I have a 99 dodge intrepid and it runs rough and stalls out. how do you find out the codes for what is wrong with it?

On my 98' Intrepid I turn the key to "ON position" Three times.( on-off-on-off-on-off-on). Don't start it. It will show the trouble codes in the odometer space. To reset the codes just undo the Neg. battery cable for 30 mins..

99 Dodge Intrepid 2.7L no power to ignition. Receiving Code P1684 but battery connection okay.

I have a problem with a 1999 Dodge Intrepid 2.7. Looking for some help or suggestions.

Problem: I only have a spark from the #2 coil.


Vehicle purchased from an Auction and would not start. The vehicle would only backfire. When I removed the valve covers I found that one of the rocker arms had popped out. I replace the heads with heads from a 2001 Intrepid 2.7. I used the cams, primary and secondary timing chains from the 1999 heads. Not sure if I used the original primary (left) cam sprocket from the 1999 or one I purchased in a kit from a Dodge dealership. I tried to use the new primary timing chain but it was not the same. The replacement heads were surfaced and a new head gasket was used. When I tried to start the vehicle it had no spark. The vehicle had set at several locations and parts may have been removed or changed.

Solutions Tried:

I tried 4 ASD relays with no effect. I then tested all 4 on a 2002 Intrepid 2.7 that runs and all worked. I then discovered that the Crank PS has missing. I replaced the Crank PS with one from a 2002 Intrepid 2.7 with no effect. I then replaced the Crank PS with a Crank PS from a 1999 Intrepid 2.7 and got a spark at the #2 coil only. I then replaced the PCM and TCM from the same 1999 Intrepid I got the Crank PS from and still only have spark from #2 coil. I then changed the Cam PS, still spark only from #2 coil. I have tried several coil packs on connector #2 and all have spark. Each coil pack that sparks on #2 will not spark on any other connector. Spark from #2 coil is weak.

I then replaced the wire harness from the PCM to the coils and fuel injectors and still only have spark from the #2 coil. What am I missing? Any suggestions, advice or related information will be greatly appreciated!

Dodge intrepid 1997 3.5 engine code p0320

This means there is no crank reference at the pcm the crank sensor is a common problem with that vehicle but I would be sure to check for bad wiring or lose connection from the crank sensor to the pcm also the. If no problem with the wiring and the crank senor test bad then change it. The dealer would recommend also changing the cam sensor as well but I have just replaced the crank sensor and fixed with no probs(if the wiring has not been damaged have seen that before mainly where the wiring can rub at the crank near the bottom
