Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
We don't have problems with body computer- central timer module causing a no start. We have problem with the engine computer causing a no start problem. I would not buy the body computer.
There is more testing needed . A few tips that might help. when the computer fails internally - it will erase the "starts since set" screen, same as ignition counts . If the computer shows a real low number of starts since the codes erased - thats an indication that the truck computer may be failing.
We also wiggle the connectors at the engine computer and tap on the computer case to see if the engine reacts, If it doers , we replace the computer ,. Also if a sensor circuit gets shorted - by the wires rubbing through to ground, internal sensor failure , or short to voltage . this will cause a stall condition . but the computer will still have response. A no response from engine computer is caused by a loss of power to the engine computer or internal computer failure.
A no response concern is not related to the body computer,
