Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello my name is ***** ***** I am a Chrysler tech. How can I help?
Have you tried opening up the intake and spraying a little starting fluid?
That would be the first and quickest way to diagnose this issue.
Just pop open the air filter housing, spray some starting fluid in and attempt to start it right away. If the truck starts, you know you have a fuel delivery problem.
Also, if the truck starts, you have just removed the ignition and timing from the equation.
How many miles on your truck?
It can only be timing, ignition, or fuel. 9 times out of ten it is a fuel issue.
Sounds like a fuel pump going out. Has it ever been replaced?
How loud is it? Have you banged on the tank to hear if it is empty? Maybe the sending unit is giving a false reading and you are out of gas.
I would first try the starting fluid. It is pretty cheap and aids in diagnosing a no start quickly. I will leave this ticket open. You do not have to do this right now if it is inconveniencing you.
No problem. Keep me posted!
Have you tried starter fluid yet?
Sounds like you have a fuel issue. If I were to guess, I would say the fuel pressure is too low. It would be wise at this point to do a fuel pressure test.
Also, if you had a scan tool that could read the short term adaptives would be great
You need to check your oil level. P0522 is for oil pressure too low. The other code is for the Intake air temp sensor which you probably unplugged putting the starter fluid in
Check your throttle plate. The code is for the Electronic throttle. When turning the key on you should hear it open and close.
Is the lightning bolt on the dash flashing?
Try to disconnect the battery positive and hold it on the negative terminal to discharge PCM capacitors. Then try again. If the problem persist, you either have a bad Electronic throttle valve or a bad PCM.
The last car I worked on with this kind of issue, it turned out to be the PCM. The customer had already replaced the Electronic throttle.
You can sometimes use a scan tool that can reset values to relearn the throttle position calibration. 50% of the time the procedure fixes the problem
Just keep in mind, it is more likely the PCM will fail before the electronic throttle will. The reason is because the PCM sends power and ground to the ETC. In my opinion, using a computer to control a motor is a very bad idea. However, I understand there is probably no other way to control the ETC.
remove positive terminal and place it on the negative terminal. Or you can take both of them off and touch them together.
You are basically discharging the computer capacitors
Not at all
Did that work?
You haven't replied, do you still need help?
The code is for electronic throttle control (ETC) motor performance. Double check the ETC connector to make sure it is seated all the way. If it is, replace the ETC.
Probably from the cleaner. I would change the ETC out. It controls the amount of incoming air. It is critical for correct air fuel ratio achievement. If the ETC is open too far you will get a lean condition. If it is closed to far you will get a rich or "choked" condition. Rotten egg smell could be also caused from too much fuel.
The new one has to be calibrated to the PCM using a sufficient scan tool.

No more than 1 hr. If they tell you it takes longer, walk out the door. The procedure should only take 20 minutes.
Any shop can do it that has a really good scan tool. I work at the Nissan dealer now, but I was able to do the procedure using the snap-on solus edge on a Dodge magnum and 300C.
You will need a scan tool that has the feature. A basic hand held scan tool does not have this feature. You will need to find a scan tool of sufficient capabilities. If you do not have one, it would be cheaper to just have someone do it rather than buy a scan tool. The scan tool I have cost $2400.
Your welcome! Please rate me if there are no further questions.
If you do not rate me then I don't get paid.
Why haven't you rated me? Be honest, I don't bite! If you are waiting for the outcome of the repair then say so. Keep me in the loop please.
Due to a no response condition I am opting out.
