    I checked the fuse box under the hood and it's actually missing. Will that be the problem? What effect does it have on the starting system.

    Ah does it have spark, remember the engine needs 3 things, fuel, spark to light the fuel and air, of course that is a very simple explanation. Anyway check the spark and the ignition timing, run a scanner on it to check for trouble codes. What is the fuel pressure reading??

I have a 2002 Chrysler town and country. I have replaced the fuel pump, fuel filter, coil pack, plugs and wires but still won't start. any ideas on what to check next?

I saw what you replaced. What testing have done? Generally, if it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the plugs, if spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure. Also, check fuel injector pulse. If your missing everything, I'd check for rpm signal. A lot of Chrysler makes and models, the computer has to see proper signal from cam and crank sensors or it won't ground the asd relay. The asd relay supplies voltage to several systems, including ignition coil and fuel injectors. Engine cranking, do you have primary voltage to those two components? Use a test light. Any applicable trouble codes?

Chevy k 2500 fuel pump good coil good rotor cap good fuel filter good changed fuel lines changed has spark fuel pressure drops when below 50 degrees outside and won't start has power to fuel pump just...

If the pump is good, check the fuel filter and the fuel pressure regulator. Also, if the truck has a factory installed theft deterrent system, it shuts off the fuel supply to the vehicle when it isn't working properly.

97 jeep grand cherokee stopped running.turns over but won't start

You don't have enough info yet in your story to blame the computer.
You say you have fuel pressure. Do you have spark at the plugs ?
Voltage at the coil ? Voltage and ground pulse at the injectors ?
Did you check the ASD relay ?
The crank sensor on most Jeeps is usually where the engine and trans meet. Is that the sensor you replaced ?

My 89 jeep cherokee won't. Start it will turn over

what motor? is the coil producing spark?? If so, check the fuel pressure, if the fuel pressure is low drop the tank, repace the pump and also replace the filter (located on the frame forward of the tank). If the coil is not producing spark, check for shorts or opens in the circuits as well as the IGN fuses. If there is NO fuel pressure at all check the fuel pump fuses and make sure the fuel pump is plugged in and there are no opens in the circuit

1992 mx-3 v6 won't start. will hit sparaticly as if about to start but just won't catch. checked crank pos. sensor. need suggestions on how to proceed.

Check for a blue snapping spark on 2 or 3 plug wires(or all of them). If you get good spark, then ignition is likely not the problem. A weak or sporadic spark could be a bad coil or coil pack, or a bad ignition module (the ignitor).Check the coils with a volt-ohmmeter per the specs for your car. The ignitor can be tested at a parts store.
If spark is good, check fuel filter, fuel pressure, check timing marks on crank pulley and cam marks, Try a little starting fluid in the air intake and see if it runs for a moment. If so, then it's likely a fuel delivery problem. If no change, then it's likely an ignition circuit problem.
Good luck.

I have a 1989 cutlass ciera 3.3L that cranks but won't stay running. I had a diagnostic test but no codes came back. I have checked the fuel pump, fuel injectors, and fuel pressure which are all good....

You need to figure out what you are missing. What is the fuel pressure at the rail when you are cranking the engine? It needs to be above 40PSI. If you have sufficient fuel pressure you need to check for spark at the plugs while cranking. If you verify you have sufficient fuel and spark then you need to look to timing and compression. These are the four things an engine need to run. Fuel, spark, compression, and timing.

How do you test the fuel pump relay on a 1991 Toyota Celica 1.6 Car just died and won't crank. We changed the ignition coil and still won't crank. Fuel pump is working. Toyota place does not check...

If the car will not crank then you have a battery, cable or starter issue. If the car will crank but not start then the problem may be the fuel pump relay. There should be an electrical diagram on the side of the relay. Apply 12v to either side of the coil and you should here a click. Then check for continuity between the other two terminals with voltage applied. If you have no continuity then the relay is bad.

Car will not turn over 1997 Grand Am

do you mean it won`t crank over then it could be the starter.check for voltage at the large wire terminal this is the battery feed wire directly from the battery.then check for voltage at the smaller terminal while someone tries to start the car.there should be voltage at this terminal only when trying to start.if both of these test are good then you will need a starter motor.the starter is located at the rad side of the motor were the motor bolts to the transmission,at the bottom side of the motor.if you mean it cranks over but won`t start then you need to check for spark at the plugs then check to make sure you have fuel with the proper pressure.a quick way is to spray carb cleaner into the intake while someone tries to start the car if it starts then you have a fuel problem,and you will need to test fuel pressure.
