Hope your not have the same problem that i had. i had to replace the ecu. my gauges wouldnt read and my odometer just flash and that would be it and the gas light would come on even though it had a full tank. but there one thing that you could try. replace the auto shut down relay first before you go and replace the ecu. the auto shut down shuts the computer off when you turn the key off. and if thats not working right then the computer wouldnt come on and the truck will not start and the fuel pump will not come on and the spark plugs will not fire.

SOURCE: will not start, no dash gauges light except "low gas level"

I have a '99 dodge dakota, 4 cyl, 5 speed manual. While researching a no start problem ran across possible solution to this problem. If no guage lights show when key truned to on position then normally a bad ignition switch. With fully charged battery and working ignition switch guage lights should slight up then go out when ignition in "on" position. Try shaking the key back and forth.

SOURCE: My eCU computer shot or is it the auto shut down relay?

It's under the hood usually on the driver side fender well. It's commonly known as an ASD Relay. Check the electrical part of the ignition switch. The "on" position of the ignition switch may not be working either.

1999 chrysler 3.5 lhs fuel not going to injectors


Then your fuel pump is not working, or your fuel filter is blocked. You will probably have to check your fuel pump circuit if you have no fuel pressure in the fuel rail, where the injectors sit. There is a fuse for the pump, usually in the under hood fuse/relay block. That is probably also where the fuel pump relay is located. You should hear or feel this relay click when the ignition key is cycled from off to on. Also, when the key is turned to on, you should hear the fuel pump in the gas tank turn on for about 2 seconds. This will put the pressure in the gas in the fuel rail, for starting the engine. If you don't hear the pump turn on for that 2 second period, it is probably a bad fuel pump. But know the fuse is good first.

Where is the crank sensor located


Might be wise to check fuses and determine why dash lights don't work. Can you hear fuel pump run? Have you checked fuel pump fuse and relay? Often when a pump fails it has been drawing extra amps for some time prior to failing, which can harm the relay. If possible, hook up a fuel pressure gauge and insure you have correct pressure. Also be aware that some cheap parts store fuel pimps are junk, and may not work even when new. Also, did you clean the gunk out of the tank?

Fuel pump runs constantly with key on engine off. pulled fuel pump relay and fp fuse on firewall and pump still runs and engine will run. pulled guage fuse in dash and pump quits. reconnect fuel pump fuse...


Gauge fuse runs a fuel module that is installed to correct vapor lock. This module is what is running the pump. This module, called the hot fuel module is mounted on the passenger side behind the dash above the blower motor.

Testing fuel pump relay on a 90 corvette

92 honda civic turns over fine but doesnt start


ok, this is a commom problem with this 92 hondas,

it may be the pump fuel relay, which is under the dash on the driver side by the fuse panel.

here is a way to determine that.

when you turn the key on the on position

do you hear the fuel pump running while the engine light is on, and does the pump stop running afteer the engine light goes off?

if you do hear the pump running then it means that fuel pump is working fine ( since it way just replaced), but if you don't hear it running while the check engine light is on ( about 2 seconds) chances are the fuel pump relay is not working as it should.


also there are clicks that have to be heard on the starting process.

1 when you turn key to on possition

2 when the check engine light goes off( a click has to be heard just after it goes off)

3 after the car starts

If you don't hear this clicks, try to get your ear close the location of the fuel pump relay( near the fuse panel under the dash).


the fuse relay is just a bunch of circuits soldered, so you can get it to someone who knows how to solder and fix it.

or just get a replacement one at any junkyard. ( cheapp)
