Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Dodge uses the famously annoying auto shut down relay to power the coil and injectors. Pop it out and jump terminals 30 and 87 and see if it starts. I'll post its location below
Hi, different expert here. Do you still need help with this issue?
I'm sorry for the delay. I got called away.
So, let me get this clear; there is no system voltage to either side of the ignition coil when the ignition switch is turned to RUN? If so, have you checked whether or not the ASD relay is getting power? - I assume you're using a voltmeter...
OK. If terminal 30 has power and you jumpered 30 and 87 and still had no power at the coil, then there is is an open in the circuit. Does the ASD relay click when the ignition is turned on? if yes, piggy back a wire from the ASD relay terminal 87 to the positive side of the coil. Check for power at the injectors. If good, try to start the engine.
Login out for the day. Will be back tomorrow and every weekday thereafter from 2 to 8PM AST. Hope to hear from you then.
With ignition on, check ASD for ground at terminal 85 and for voltage at terminal 86.
If no ground at terminal 85, check continuity on the Dark Blue/Yellow wire all the way to PCM pin 51. If OK, either the PCM itself is faulty or it's not getting power and ground - will need a DRB-III or equivalent scan tool to continue diagnosis.
If no voltage at terminal 86, check fuse 14. If voltage OK, disconnect negative battery cable and check continuity on the Dark Blue wire from terminal 86 to fuse ox14 in the fuse b. Repair as needed.
