If it is a 2006 then you probably need a new battery, which is located under the hood of the car. If the gauges flicker, the battery is probably too dead to start the whole car, but it will still try to start it. Hoped it helped.

Could be a relay or a sensor, where I would start is at the nearest Auto Partts store for a manual. You already know the problem is the fans, you just need to know where the relays, sensors, and/or thermostats are. Don't be thrown off by the temp gauge.

Coud p0753 durango 1998


DTC P0753 is for the 3-4 shift solenoid in the trans.
This is an electrical code, it will set when the voltage seen by the engine controller on the solenoid's control circuit is incorrect. The solenoid pack gets a constant 12v from the trans relay and is controlled by the engine controller by switching ground.

Since you don't have a code for the TCC solenoid that shares the same relay feed and you don't have a trans relay code set we know the problem is isolated to the solenoid or it's control wire. It could be a short, broken wire, or corrosion in the control wire between the trans and engine controller, but this is almost always the solenoid itself.

This code is not not saying replace parts. They say check it out on yours a code 753 points to a 3-4 shift solenoid relay problem or wiring problem. Other thing to check could be the speed sensor module that screws into the side of the transfer case. back feeding bad info to ECM.

Car starts, then dies shortley thereafter. Relay? bad plugs? already checked fuel pump. any advise? what's a "inurtia" (sp) switch?


It's probably not the inertia switch which kills the fuel pump totally. It's in the trunk and you reset it by pushing down the red button.
I'm rusty on that old car,but my Dad had one.GREAT CARS! Safe when wrecked,too!Ha,Ha!!!
A vacuum leak will kill a car after fast idling is over at start-up, but there is probably an electrical solenoid acting up( IATC solenoid?), in the air plenum or at the throttle plate..It's somewhere in that area,I'd say. don-ohio

My car doesn't start but the battery is fine. The engine fuses are fine. There is no fuel going into the engine. What could the problem be? I already replaced the fuel pump. my car is 96 Dodge grand...


put a funnel in the gas nozzle have someone turn ignition on to almost start, but don't. You should hear pump running before you start your van if you don't hear the pump you know you have a defective pump if you hear the pump purchase a fuel filter try that if not possibly could the relay not sure where its at but could finds out for you.good luck

Where is the fuel pump relay on a 01 kia optima.its not in the fuse box under the hood or dash any suggestions?


If you have no wiring diagrams or experience
with electrical troubleshooting, your just guessing
and wasting time

Fuses,Relays and all the things you hear about,
just don't up & fail that offten.

You didn't say what the problem was

If it doesn't start or shuts off while driving,
the fuel pump may be worn out.

If you had an owners manual you would know where the
relays are. I don't. I would need the same info you do

I a upgrading my horns on my toyota hilux invincible 2008 the kit comes with a relay. Does the existing horn circuit have a relay already because it is powering 2 horn already? or do i have to add this...


The relay is to allow the new horns to draw full power from the battery. They won't be nearly as loud if you don't wire it the way they suggest, and you may still blow the fuse.
