    Usually with similar problems, you hear a "click click click..." but I get just one click, and nothing. Replaced the solenoid/starter, but no change. Battery is reading 12.9, and all electrical appliances seem to be working. Alarm light blinking normally.

Thanks for the ideas. It turns out the new starter was bad. The store replaced the bad starter, and it starts fine now. I should have tested, but I was short on time. That's what I get for being in a hurry.

Double check your sensors to make sure they are seated properly. (there is one in the front and one on the left side) If they are not seated properly the magnet in it can not sense the cam/crank position and will cause hard/no starts. It should be flush against the motor (no washer etc..)

Not sure if you still need help with this or not but I will share my info anyways.

I had the engine replaced in my 2001 maxima with a used one and after driving it for about 1000 miles it started getting harder and harder to start until eventually I couldn't get it to start at all. It also would sputter really bad around 20-25 miles an hour whenever I accellerated. I took it to the dealer and after many tries they were able to get it fired and when they did they hooked it up to the consult II machine and it gave many trouble codes. They even suggested I try buying a new computer for $3000 with no promise that it would even fix it. I told them no and had it towed to another shop and gave them the Consult II print out and explained in detail what was going on. It took them about a week of research and troubleshooting but they finally pinpointed the problem!! The crank sensor was sending a signal to the computer that was out of spec and when it did it would not fire. Every once in a while it would be within spec and it would fire causing the very speratic starts. Come to find out the shop that installed the used engine did not grind down the mating surfaces of the engine and transmission with a wirewheel or brush to get rid of any oxidation or other imperfections. This caused the engine and trans to not line up and as a result the crank sensor was also out of position with what it is suppose to be reading and was sending a bad signal which resulted in it not firing. Once the problem was pinpointed it was as simple as unbolting the engine and trans far enough to get a grinder or whatever they used in between them and smooth the surfaces and then properly torque the bolts. Started fine ever since and the sputtering at lower speeds also disappeared.

How is the security light next to the clock?? is it on steady??instead of flashing?? the light should be flashing when you take the key out. it takes about 30sec. for it to start flashing. Check it and let me know what you find.

The primary intent of this code is to detect slipped camshaft timing. Have you checked the camshaft timing? Your symptoms indicate you are a tooth off.

My 1998 Dodge Durango won't start. No spark


check for power at the coil. There should be power anytime the engine is cranking. If there is no power let me know and i'll get you some more info.

If there is power check for pulse on the other wire. If there is pulse than replace the coil.

if there is no pulse I can get you more info on that as well.

Stopped while driving replaced fuel filter and pump and crank shaft senor


I suspect you have a bad camshaft sensor. It is part of the distributor. To check, remove distributor cap and rotor (1 screw for rotor) and check for brown dust. If yes, remove slotted wheel and clean optical sensor. If car starts, you need a distributor.

Crank sensor has no affect on system. It is used for back up only.

Can you hear pump run for 5 seconds when you turn key on?

2002 ram 1500 4.7 liter no start


Replace your camshaft sensor and check for a vacuum leak in your intake manifold, mostly towards the back. If you have a leak it will give false readings on your code reader. My truck was doing the same thing and we found the endcap on the maifold had blown off after a back-fire. We reglued the endcap and replaced crank and camshaft sensor and the truck runs better than it ever has!!! GOOD LUCK!!!!
