I have a 2004 Town and Country that just stopped running out

Customer Question

I have a 2004 Town and Country that just stopped running out of no where. It will start, I have checked all connections, fuel everything I can think of I even coded it with a code tool and it will not stay running more than a minute. Do you have any idea what it may be?

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
If the engine runs but then dies with no codes and will not restart then the most likely cause would be a failing fuel pump. Anything that will cause a loss of spark should set a fault code.
You mentioned checking fuel so I'm assuming you checked fuel quality since didn't mention checking pressure. Have you checked fuel pressure with a gauge at the time the engine dies or isn't starting?

How can I check the per sure if it dies and will not start or turn over again until it has set for approximately an hour.
I can by pass the relay on starter will turn over but not start

I wasn't aware that the starter didn't engage.
Does the PCM communicate with a scan tool when the starter doesn't' engage?
