Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, Welcome to Just Answer...My name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be assisting you today...
May I ask if the vehicle has any DTC's?
I can check it out tomorrow. what is a DTC ?
A Diagnostic Trouble Code
Oh. I've already had it scanned for trouble codes, and no trouble codes show up
Has the timing belt been replaced recently?
And when did vehicle start having problems?
Yes it has. About 3 or 4 weeks ago. And it has been working great ever since on a daily basis. But i did recently put in a new clutch kit two days ago and i put my tranny back on and everything else i had to take off to replace the clutch; i tried to start it up and thats when the trouble started...
It refused to start after i put in a new clutch.
Ok, that helps....Did you perhaps pinch the wiring harness between bellhousing?
I dont believe so, but i will check it out first thing tomorow
Did you unplug the coil and Camshaft Position sensor?
Ok, Im asking because the Coil and Camshaft sensor has the same plug in...And it will connect to either of the two....I have had issues where customer has swapped the two, and ended up with a No-Start with No DTC's
I work at a Dodge Dealership and in fact it was another shop that couldnt fix it and brought it to me...And I fixed it in 20min..
Well if all that is well and good, we need to start Diag....
nice! you seem to know your stuff!
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX doesnt hurt...
okay. so how do we "start Diag..."
Ok, what I want to know is if the ASD relay is working.....You said you had fuel, do you mean you have fuel psi or Injectors are firing?
And did you verify that you plugged all harness's up, and any other things that you had to u-plug during the Trans R&R?
I did check the ASD relay and it is getting voltage and seems to look good. I have fuel pressure (i checked by moving the valve stem on the fuel test port rail). I do not know if the injectors are good or not- Should i just take an injector out and crank engine and see if it spits out any fuel?
yes. I did verify to make sure all harnesses were plugged back in.
Do not remove injectors, that wont be nessesary..
Are you at vehicle now?
I'm not. I will be tomorow morning though.
Ok, you just want to get some tests to do for tomm? Correct?
yes. Because i can't figure out this no-spark situation for the life of me...
Or would it be more convenient to chat tomorow when im at the vehicle?
Ok, I will help you......Now are you sure that its not getting any spark?
Positive. Im not getting anything from the plug wires or ignition coil. No spark at all.
Ok let me post something for you to look at...
I even tried push starting it with some friends...
This no-start test checks the camshaft position sensor and crankshaft position sensor.
Use the DRB scan tool to test the camshaft position sensor and the sensor circuits. Refer to the appropriate Powertrain Diagnostics Procedure Manual. Refer to the wiring diagrams section for circuit information.
The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) supplies 8 volts to the camshaft position sensor and crankshaft position sensor through one circuit. If the 8 volt supply circuit shorts to ground, neither sensor will produce a signal (output voltage to the PCM)
When the ignition key is turned and left in the On position, the PCM automatically energizes the Auto Shutdown (ASD) relay. However, the controller de-energizes the relay within one second because it has not received a camshaft position sensor signal indicating engine rotation.
During cranking, the ASD relay will not energize until the PCM receives a camshaft position sensor signal. Secondly, the ASD relay remains energized only if the controller senses a crankshaft position sensor signal immediately after detecting the camshaft position sensor signal.
Thats the Test for no start .... Do you understand it?
Do you see a image?
Yes. The test looks pretty straightforward. I will give it a shot first thing tomorow! I don't know if your busy tomorow or not, but i guess i will send you a message and tell you if what happens. (this is the first time ive used this answer. com website)
I do not see the image. what do i click on to make the immage appear?
Ok dont worry, I just started being an Expert on here Wednesday...lol
I havent got the posting photos down pat yet...Sorry, it was a picutre of the coil connector
haha okay. No prob. So do i just hit u up tomorrow and let you know what happens?
That test will tell us if its bad coil, bad Crankshaft sensor/or wiring, bad Camshaft sensor/wiring, and ASD Relay....
I still seem to think that since it started when you installed the trans, that A: something is pinched B: Something isnt connected
If you are satisfied with the info I have provided you, and want to follow-up with me tomm when you run the tests...Please click ACCEPT
It was a pleasure working with you tonight....
Okay i will follow up with you tomorrow
Hello, Can you tell what melted the wire?
I understand....Did you repair the wire?
