Try removing the power commander to see if that is your problem.

    Yes if you look under the right side access cover (just in front of the right saddle bag) you should see the power commander) just remove the plug that is going into the PC and plug directly into the ECM (Electronic Control Module) if the bike starts then you have a bad PC. Do not run the bike without the PC for long. Just long enough to verify that that is your problem. If it is then you'll need to replace the PC (My local dealer sells them but if yours doesn't then go to the PC website and the can tdell you who does locally).

    Good luck!

    Here what I would do. Go to the dealer and buy the service manual for your bike (Mechanical/Electrical). The book will show you how to check the engine codes (I.e. it will tell you which sensor is bad). The Service Manual is about $50.00.

Jeep chorokee ran fine but alterantor died. I replaced that but now I am getting a code 54 and it wont turn over. Any ideas?

Are you saying the starter motor won't crank the engine? If so, I'd have to make sure battery has a full charge and battery connections all good. I'd also check the starter motor wiring circuits. Any testing at starter motor, make sure tranny is in park or neutral and parking brake is set.
Now, if it cranks good but won't start, have a helper crank it while you check for spark at the spark plugs, if spark everywhere, use a gage and check proper fuel pressure and fuel injector pulse.
Code 54 should be for the cam sensor in distributor. If I get a code for cam or crank sensor, I usually check them both. I check the wiring circuits.

My 2003 galant runs but when i shut it off i need a jump i had a service engine light on and it said i needed a camshaft sensor replaced now nomore light but car still wont start without jumps

Needing a jump can mean several things.
The cables could be dirty or not tight again, the battery may be loosing power if the car sits, and so on.
Someone would need to check the battery with a meter when it won't crank and find out if the battery is fully charged, and if the starter is getting power.

I have a 2003 stratus and it wont start... Crank sensor???

In a HOT day,old battery and fuel pump will be the prime troublemaker.

You need to charge up the battery and check for 12.4-13.6V range.

How old is the battery?

Most are warrenty for 24,48 or 96 months.

Fuel pump motor portion will ran forever. But the plastic diaphragm will give out in a hot day.

Do a fuel injector pressure test. Below 40 pis is trouble.

Fuel filter should be change if the fuel pump is at fault.

ALL more gas until it's over 1/2 tank and re-test.

A weak fuel pump will take more effort to pull fuel from a near empty tank.

Good luck,

Starting problems with my 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe

I have an 03 Santa Fe as well and just had the exact thing happen to me. One day, it just wouldn't turn over at all and I had to have it towed to the dealer. They replaced the "crank shaft position sensor" and now the car is fine. I am not sure if this is your problem but it might be worthwhile asking someone to check it out.
