    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?

Need to know why won't get no spark...changed ignition module, ignition coil, cap and rotor still not firing. ....any ideas

What make vehicle ? year an model too ! Before you replaced those parts did you check for battery supply voltage an check the ground for those components ? You need to get a wiring diagram an see what get's voltage an what is ground ! An see what all is involved , crankshaft position sensor , ECM / PCM -engine computer etc...! Then you need a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter to test ! Your looking for a quick fix an doesn't work like that !

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 ?

2005 Dodge Grand Caravan won't start

Make sure the battery has a full charge. If it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you visually check for spark at the spark plugs. If spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure, also, check fuel injector pulse. If your missing everything, check cam and crank sensors.
With engine cranking check primary voltage to coil and fuel injectors, brown wire with white tracer. If no voltage leads back to asd relay. I'm not saying that relay is faulty. You can see fuse for that relay, that fuse circuit is hot all the time. The computer grounds the control side of relay if it sees proper cam and crank signals.

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.

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.

My 2003 ford focus se.sounds like it wants to start but that my fuel pump?

If you open your fuel cap and have someone turn the ignition on you should hear a buzzing noise in the gas tank for two seconds. That's your fuel pump. Also go to the pressure regulator under the hood, access the pressure tester valve, press on the valve and have someone crank the engine for one second. You should get gas coming out.

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.
