Question about 2000 Dodge Intrepid

1 Answer

2000 Intrepid turns over no spark

I have 1850000+-KMs on my intrepid. This year my problems started with the #2 fule injector failing, replaced it went along fine untill I kept getting oil light on (later found oil leak in front of pan), I would top up the oil, but before I could do anything about that the engine light came on and the car stalled. I started it back up, got the oil light again but the oil level was fine. I turned back to the garage no more then 10min later the engine light flashed and my care came to a lurching hult on the road and would not start. I thought my engine sized by the way the car died, but once it was at the garage you can turn the engine over but you get no spark. I replaced the crank position sensor (used) to see if that was the probelm... no change. When the key is in the on position all the dash lights come on then go out as normal. The check engine light no longer stays on, and when I tried to get the OED codes, nothing happend. I do recall trying to hook up my CD\MP3 player up to the car, the sterio played but got no sound. I rewired the harnesses and tried again this time the sterio was dead and the odometer reads "no bus", I put the stock sterio back in and everything was fine, I dunno if I did this before or after my injector went. Anyway I guess my question is did I fry something putting the sterio in? Does anyone have an idea as to what might have gone wrong?

    I will check that, come to think of it I did see a ground cable that looked abit under the weather. It was between the engine and transmition I think...

  • Veinot Jun 10, 2008

    I checked the ground's I could find no change. I hooked the sterio back up and tried starting it, this time all it did was click click click, I then managed to get the car to spit out the ODS code P1684. I looked it up and got Contr. Unit programming communication error... what does that mean?

  • Veinot Jun 14, 2008

    I got it hooked up to a computer the ECM is reporting to the computer and is registering engine turn over. The cam and crank sensors are working but still no spark. shortly before the car died my oil light came on, but she has lots of oil... if the oil pressure sensor is out or if the oil pressure is too low will that prevent the pistons from fireing?

"No Bus" usually means you have a bad ground. Check the condition of the battery ground, clean it if necessary. Check other grounds as well.

    I don't think you fried anything, but you may be experiencing the car deteecting someone trying to steal it and locked itself out. Are you using the stereo install harness available at places like Wal-Mart?

My 1998 Dodge Intrepid is starting & then stalling only after a few seconds. The engine light came on, & the code was P1391. Any ideas?

That code is indicating an intermittant crank shaft or cam shaft sensor fault. Because the engine is starting then stalling, check to see if you have spark after the stall. If spark is still present, you are probobley looking at a cam sensor circuit issue. The cam sensor controls the fuel injector pulse. If the cam sensor fails on a chrysler product, the fuel injectors will not function.

My 2000 intrepid will no start. My husband has recently replaced with a new alternator. The car ran fort the 2 days.After i shut it off it then never started back. My husband then replaced the fuel pump...

Check injectors for operation of solenoids. Put long screwdriver on injector and hold ear to screwdriver while someone cranks engine. If injector clicks once every 2 revolutions, injectors are working. If working, check fuel pressure at rail. If low, replace fuel pressure regulator (get back to me for instructions).

If injectors not clicking, the powertrain control module is not sending signals to the injectors. This could be caused by the camshaft position sensor or the PCM itself.

If you have more questions, please let us know.

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!

My '99 Intrepid won't run. Replaces the throttle

looks like your intrepid has what is know as a driveability problem
1. electric fuel pump is failing
2. injectors are mis-firing due to clogs: 1 or more has failed
3. someone has been naughty and dumped something in your fuel tank while you slept

I have a 1995 intrepid it doesn´t turns on and we change change the computer what could it be?

If the starter is good and you have fuel at the injector and spark at the plugs at the proper time it should start.

The computer is only there to make everything run good and could be bad but the engine would still run.... badly but still run.

3 things to look for

1--- fuel

2--- spark to the plug

3--- make sure timming is ok.

Hard to move Gear Shifter in a 2000 Dodge Intrepid ES

I had the same problem after my car went into a transmission shop for some service. This might be the solution, it was with my car. Check the transmission shift cable. When mine finally failed, it was filled with rust.
You may be able to simply lubricate it somehow with something like WD40, but I'm not sure if it would work. If all else fails, you can have the shift cable replaced, which is what I had to do with my car after driving it for 2 years with that problem. By then I had worn out and warped the shifter and had to replace that too, as well as drive it around for a week without being able to get the transmission into park.
Good luck! If you have to take it to a shop, just tell them that your shift cable is going bad and you want them to make sure.
