Chrysler Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose). I normally log in after 3 pm central everyday. Please let me know exactly what you need from this conversation so you will want to rate me with EXCELLENT 5 STAR service.
With the relay removed, are there 2 pins there which are powered when trying to start?
With the key on, the relay bypassed, it cranks, but will it start?
If we are both online at the same time the replies back and forth are pretty fast.
Can you respond to both questions I previously asked?
Here is your starting diagram https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/90220402/pacificastart.pdf
Next we need to see if the ignition switch is powering the yellow wire at the switch connector when trying to start.
At the top of your screen you will see 1-5 stars and a green submit button. You have already paid all the fees, now its time to rate the answer. Rating pays me from your deposit. I am only paid through not by the website if you rate me. Don't worry about a follow up later if needed, they are free and I welcome them. Ask me about a phone call if you prefer that service.
First off you have to get the ignition switch to power the yellow wire to the starter relay pin 85. You wrote is not getting power so we need to test another wire at the ignition switch. If the light blue/red wire is powered but yellow is not when trying to start then the ignition switch is bad.
No you do not take the switch apart.
Yes I saw where you said the radio goes off when trying to start.
No that is not a sufficient test of the ignition switch.
As you can see in the prior diagram I sent there is nothing in the circuit between the ignition switch and starter relay.
Keep in touch if needed and thanks for rating my response when your ready.
That is correct, there is not a transmission range sensor switch on that circuit we are testing.
At the connector that plugs into the ignition switch.
This is how you replace it, your only needing to access the wires into the connector.
Hello again Chris here,
I am contacting you because the post has not been closed or rated. We have 7 days to get a post rated before it times out. When a post times out, that means its no longer on my active list (if you reply I never know it.) You have already paid the fees to get this question answered, but it appears your not pleased, or need more help.
Let me help some more. Is there anything else you feel I could offer so you would be pleased with my help. I have the option to call you if that would be better.
