Is there suffecient voltage going INTO the PCM? Does the CHECK ENGINE light come on with the key? Does the fuel pump run?

1994 Chrysler lhs cranks over but wont start. Acts like it wants to start but wont. ive got no voltage going to crank sensor no voltage to coil pks no voltage to cam sensor and fuel pump not runnning

Sounds like a bad pcm to me. Both the crank and cam sensors should have nearly 8 volts on the orange wire to them, with key in on. That is the 8 volt reference signal to them, and it comes from the pcm at connector pin #7.

I have a 99 ford f250 sd with a v10 drove truck home parked it next morning crank but no start. had a shop check it out said crank sensor changed nothing then cam sensor changed nothing. has great...

put back old ecm and try spare key. if it does not work and you use a new ecm you need to program your keys to the immobilizer for it to work

Eng starts hard,runs good until the rpm is over 2200 then it stumbles my input voltage on the cam sensor is 5volts ,on most cars i've read should have 8volts where

Both crank and cam sensors have a 8 volt reference I have found the wiring melted together where it cross over transmission shorting out the signal. also test your reference voltage at the computer with circuit unplugged at sensor watch meter and wiggle wiring going back to computer this will help find faulty area.

2001 jetta vr6 cranks but won't start have fuel and spark replaced camshaft sensor, new plugs valve cover gasket got code of PO343 and PO740

code po740 refers to torque converter clutch(TCC) solenoid-circuit malfunction==causes --wiring--TCC solenoid-ECM/TCM
code p0343 refers to cam shaft position sensor(CMP) A bank1-high input.==causes --wiring short to positive--CMP sensor---ECM. check which cam sensor you replaced and check the wiring connectors. use a code reader to reset the cpu when finished

No power to injector curcit, checked system with nod light no power to light

You could still have powert at the plug. A noid light only tests a completed circuit.
Check for power with a volt meter or test light. There should be power with the key on. If there is power. then you have to look at the crank sensor, cam sensor, and ecm. Crank sensors are mostly for the spark. Cam sensors are mostly for the injectors. But they both work together to send a signal to the ecm, which controls the injectors ground. If you have 12 volts at the injector plug, then I would start with the cam sensor. Also have the ecm checked for codes. this will tell you alot.

My 1990 riviera will run great, as you are going down the road it will shut off,but crank right backup. whats wrong?

Check the ECM part number. If it is a 1228253 that is your problem. get a 16198264 the other number does just what your car is doing. I worked at a Buick dealer and know about the problematic 1228253 ecm.

I have a lhs 1996 Chrysler. The car wont start and the engine fuze burns out.

I also have a 96 LHS that randomly blows the 20 amp ECM fuse. If this is what you are referring to, the problem may be in one of your ECM sensors. 1-Start by unplugging all ECM sensors (Temp, Cam, Crank, 2-O2, TPS, etc.) and replace the fuse. 2-Crank the starter (the car will not start) and see if the fuse blows. If it does you probably have an electrical problem with the ECM. 2-If the fuse does not blow, plug in only the cam sensor and start the car; it will idle rough and the check engine light will come on. If the fuse blows, the problem is the cam sensor or wiring to it. 3-Continue plugging in sensors one at a time and try starting. When the fuse blows, you will know which sensor and/or wiring to the sensor to check. This process of elimination has worked twice for me.
