Question about 1998 Chrysler Concorde

1 Answer

My car just stopped without any warning on the street. Now it won't start. It cranks over when I turn the ignition but won't start. One of the fuses keeps blowing out when I replace it. I'm guessing it might be the fuel pump because there's no pressure on the gas peddle. What might be my problem?

The fuel pressure needs to be checked if its low then the fuel pump and fuel filter needs to be replaced. There are some possibilities which you will have to check in this case:--
1) First of all check the power and voltage to the battery. With meter it will show exact 12 volt if the battery is charged. If the voltage is less get the battery charged at local auto repair shop. If the battery is internally drained and not getting charged then its time to replace the battery.
2) When you crank the car do you see spark coming at the spark plug? If no then its time to check the spark plugs and coil pack. If the spark plugs are not worn out and looks new then its time to check coil pack. The spark plug gets power to spark from coil pack.
3) The other thing to check in this case is the starter solenoid of the car. If the battery is charged and you start the car then it gives power to the starter to start the car. But if starter is faulty or not connected properly then car will not start.
4) The other thing to check in this case is fuel in the car. If there is fuel in the car then check the blockages in the fuel pump if the fuel pump looks proper then check the fuel filter above the fuel pump.
5) If all the above possibilities mentioned above checked out OK/perfect then it’s a electrical issue and the wiring's in the car needs to be checked. The car gets power from the battery to get started. so the wires from battery needs to be checked one by one.
---------
If the fuel pump fuse is blowing again n again then you will have to re-wire the fuel pump lines of wire back to fuse, relay, main power, and computer. In between the wires there is a minute short causing the fuel line connection to short and blowing fuse.
Usually when the fuel pump fuse keeps blowing, it is because the fuel filter is clogged or the fuel pump is bad.
If the fuel pump fuse blows over and over again you may have a dying fuel pump, clogged fuel pump, or problem with the electrical system. If any of these issues is the cause of a fuse blowing multiple times, the fuse will usually blow again soon after it is replaced.

Ignition does not respond when turning the key


I looked at info for 4.0L engine.
Make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good.
In the first picture, check that 40 amp fuse, under hood fuse box, not only check the fuse, check the fuse circuit for voltage, hot all the time. Use a test light to check for voltage.
The diagram for ignition switch, the top wires are voltage going to ignition switch, the bottom wires are voltage from ignition switch with key in the proper position. You can see the wire colors. Do some testing.

Won't start. key works in aux position but not when turned all the way


If you have power in aux position(ex.)radio works but doesn't when you put the key in the start position,the ignition switch is bad,the contacts are warn out for starting/cranking&run positions,these are used everytime you start your car,but auxillary is ony used once in awhile(ex.)your sitting listening to music while waiting for someone to come,but if you do have radio in the run position,but no cranking/starting you could have a blown resistor on fire wall or fuse for ignition,or the starter has called it quits,good luck I don't know if the starter is clicking rapid or just one click or just no power not cranking or cranking a better description of everything that happens will make this alot easier

Car cranks but won't start, battery ok all systems seem to be ok any ideas?


Try having someone check to see if the fuel pump has stopped working. I suddenly developed the same problem as yours three days ago, and that's what heppened to mine. They go without warning or prior symptoms, it seems.

many things will cause no start problems could have faulty ignition switch.use test light see if power going to starter if not check ignition fuse to starter.if power going to starter, more likely starter solenoid or starter faulty.if ignition fuse okay and starter and solenoid okay still no start problem could be in the ignition switch or inhibitor switch faulty.code scan for faulty theft security system which will also cause no start conditions.

Volvo s60 2003 - Without warning the car won't start but when you leave it overnight it appears to be okay. Clock runs sporatically and different msgs such are airbag, alarm was going off, removed


Sound like you are dealing with a bad battery connection,or even a bad ignition switch,Volvo at your year had ignition related problems where the ignition switch would go past position 1,this was due to ingition column lock,On your type of make and model it is not adviseable you crank the engine,and recrank the engine if it not starting your immoblizer is done every one key ignition cycle,and can create false message,or DTC (trouble codes),

1990 Jetta stopped suddenly without warning while driving.


Other possibilities are a blown ignition module, bad coil wire, or broken cam sensor (it's attached to the distributor). There are detailed tests for these in the Bentley, but your mechanic ought to be able to troubleshoot.

This is presuming it's really a no-spark failure. Ground or power faults can disable the computer, the fuel pump circuit can be open, etc.

Have you check the fuel filter?
Is there any spark on the spark plug cable? If there isn't any spark, you might check the ignition coil and ECU

MY 98 FORD EXPLORER CRANKS BUT DOES NOT TURN OVER. I HAVE POWER BUT MY VEHICLE WON'T START


You mean that the starter is turning (cranks) the engine but the engine won't start? Be sure it is getting fuel. Turn the key to the on position and you should hear the fuel pump in the fuel tank run for a few seconds. If so that is good. If the fuel is being delivered then possibly you have no spark which usually is the electronic ignition module. The only way to test it is to replace it. Your timing chain or belt could be broken or "jumped" as the third possibility. I am leaning toward ignition module being bad as they just die without warning and nothing can revive them.

Car wont start .


You will not be able to hear the fuel pump on that model. First you have to determine if you get fuel and have spark. If it is a fuel problem, replace the DME relay first. Very common. They act up and fail without warning. Part is cheap and located in the fuse box. Next would be the fuel pump.
If it is spark related it may be the Flywheel Reference Sensors. There are two and the cost about $100 each.

Good Luck.
