Question about 1989 Dodge Shadow

Open Question

I have a 1989 Dodge Shadow ES Turbo 2.5 and I have a problem starting the car. When I am spinning the key in the contact does not start the engine. It only starts if I press the little bulb in the right side of the wheel. Would you be so kind to tell me what happen. Thank you very much in advance. Roxana Bulmez

    the switch at the base of the column seems out of adjustment, are you talking about the horn button to start it?

SOURCE: my 1993 dodge shadow es wont start.. if it does

You could have a spark plug wire off or bad plug wires shorting to the head. There could be a shorted cable/wire to your alternator. The easiest way to check for shorts is to disconnect your positive or negative battery cable. Make sure your ignition is off and your doors are closed. Touch the cable you took off to the terminal you took the cable from. If there is a loud bright spark you have a pretty good short. If nothing it may just be your plug wires. If you have not had a tune up in a long time it may just be the plug wires and you need a complete tune up. Alternators that short out internally typically will kill the battery over a short period of time. I hope this helps you out!!

Where do I plug in my car to find out engine codes on my 93 dodge shadow

You don't need to, just cycle key, on (not start) off,on,off,on and leave in on position and count flashes of check engine light.
Will be a 2 digit number with pause in between. For example: 3 flashes, pause, 3 more, is code 33. 1 flash, pause, 2 flashes, is code 12. When you get 5 flashes, pause, 5 more, that's 55 which means end of message.

Will a 2.2 motor fit into my 90 dodge shadow?

Chilton shows 2.2, 2.5, and 2.6 motors for that year Shadow so Im guessing a 2.2 will work but might lack the power you were used to. Best of luck.

1989 Dodge Shadow radiator fan won't come on. If I supply direct battery to the fan it comes on so I know the fan motor is good. What should I check? Thanks.

Sounds like the relay switch. Look in owners manual to see where it is located. I know some are under the dash and some in the engine compartment.
