Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you out with your question.
This could be an ignition switch, or security system problem. Have you had this scanned for codes?
Would you like me to send you a wiring diagram of the starting system circuit?
If you jump the starter, does it turn over?
Are able to turn the engine over by hand on the crank sprocket?
Does it click when turning the key to the start position?
Do you have a volt meter or test light?
Check for voltage at the small wire on the starter with the key in start position.
What do you have to the large wire? the one from the battery?
There is a large wire that goes to the battery, a small wire for the switch signal
You should have battery voltage to the starter at all times on the large wire, the small wire should have 12 volts when the key in in the start position.
If you are getting voltage to both wires this indicates a problem with the starter solenoid.
that is what is supposed to happen. I know you said you already replaced the starter, but what you are telling me indicates the starter is bad.
Try using an old school test light on the smaller wire on the starter and turn the key to start.
I can no longer help with this, I will opt out and another expert will help shortly. Thanks.
