Question about Chrysler Sebring

Open Question

Sebring 2004, 2.4 L.fuse 24 (injector/coil) keeps breaking when ignition switch goes to on position. Changed crank sensor, cam sensor and ignition coil. It all began with rough idle and stalling, loosing power. Initially I Changed coil, but erratic idle continued. Changed crank and cam sensors. Coil got hot, started to burn coil at post 3, blew fuse #24, and it got into a cranking-but not starting mode.

I would be thinking that there is a good chance that you need to be checking out replacing the computer, if you aren't getting any communication with the proper scan tool then the computer isn't communicating with anything in the vehicle...... I would have guessed first off that the ignition control module might be bad but that is obviously part of the computer also, I would be looking in that direction.

Well, some things need to be done systematically. Check for spark to make sure the coils are in fact working. Check for fuel to make sure you don't have a bum fuel pump and/or plugged filter. Ignition coils will get hot. The very fact that it melted may be the sign of a computer issue. Let me know what you find and then we can move forward.

97 oldsmobile achieva wont fire changed coil pack spark plugs cam sensor still wont start

Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good.
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 and fuel injector pulse.
If you having a problem with more than one system, I want to check for rpm signal, that usually comes from the crank sensor. Not sure why you replaced cam sensor? I always want to check sensor wiring circuits before replacing anything. Don't replace anything unless your testing points in that direction.

My 2004 sebring stalls and will not crank for hours it stalls while driveing or setting still

If it usually starts when cold, but when fails hot will not start until totally cold, suspect bad coil, ignition module or other electronic sensor on engine such as crank or cam sensor. Testing individual parts often is difficult, because part only fails when hot.

Mitsubishi endeavor 2004 coil pack burnt out changed and turns over but no start spark plugs wet from fuel but not starting

There are so many possibilities, fuse, command module, crank signal? Is the module getting 12 volts. It is rarely a whole ignition coil pack goes out unless of a short. Was the unit burned up? If not, it could have a bad crank position signal. The cam sensor is mainly for fuel and crank sensor is mainly for spark.

Coil no power mitsubishi galant 4y 2006 im change timen belt bot no power in evry coil and chang cam shaft sonsor

Did you forget a ground wire attachment? Recheck your engine grounds.
Each coil should get power on the black/white from the ignition switch, constant battery voltage. Does it? If not, check fuse 24, a 10 amp fuse in the Junction Block. Power travels from the ignition switch (in ON, RUN, or START) to this fuse, and then is spliced to each coil. Other than that, the PCM controls the current switching for the coils (for spark). The other wire from the coil (black?) goes to the pcm for earthing the primary current to the coils.

If the coils have power but no spark, it could be the crankshaft position sensor. I believe the crank sensor would be more important than the camshaft sensor for the pcm to figure spark timing.

No power going to coil I have changed the ignition switch crank sensor coil I have switched auto shut down relay

What is your vehicle? Assuming you have a Chrysler, check to see if the fuel pump is coming on when you switch the ignition to the on position. Most of the Chrysler's with the auto-shutdown relay system use the same power to energize the fuel pump, ignition coil and fuel injectors. The hot lead to the coil should be the same color wire as the lead to the injectors and fuel pump. If power is present at the pump and injectors, then you should trace from the coil back to where it joins up to everything else. If nothing is powered up, check for bad fuses or a bad connection in the engine fuse block.

Dead cylinders 2003 sebring

it sounds like you may have the wires on the wrong coil. It should be #1 on the #4 coil, and the #3 wire on the #2 coil. you probably have them backwards so 1 and 3 are firing on the exhaust stroke.
the firing order is 1-3-4-2.
they should be hooked like this.
