Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Good afternoon and welcome to JustAnswer!!My name is ***** ***** I have worked for a Chrysler-Dodge-Jeep dealership for 19 years and I will do my best to help.
Do you know what codes are setting in the PCM?
Do you see a security light on in the dash?
Did it stall or just wouldn't start oneday?
Have you checked the fuel psi and for spark?
Did it stall or just won't start?
Have you verified no spark?
Has any work been previously done?
have you checked compression?
With a scantool is the crankshaft and camshaft sensors in sync?
Do you have a scantool or cheap code reader? Does it show the camshaft and crankshaft sensors in sync or out of sync?
What is your VIN number?
You have 2 open recalls on your vehicle for the airbags..
I have been researching your intermittent no start and there are a few cases on no start no crank but in your case it's cranking fine just won't start and you don't have spark.. Anytime your dealing with a no start and no spark it's electrical which means you will need a scantool to monitor the PCM and TIPM. I have attached the no start diagnostics you will need to follow to determine the issue..

If there was a security issue the red light would be on in the dash.. When you ran the test when did you find?
Yes it sounds like you have an intermittent issue and the only way you will be able to find what is going on is if it's gets worse and when it will not start you are able to see if your loosing spark or fuel. Once you know what your missing you can start checking..
If you are sure it's loosing spark then I would monitor the crankshaft and camshaft sensors and see if they are counting and In Sync, the PCM needs to see both In Sync before it will power up the ASD relay and send the ground pulse to the coils..
Let me know what you find,
Ok so the security red light is on solid when your cranking and it will not start? That is your issue then, do you have a spare key?
If both keys will not start it then it's likely your key module which is the SKIM module is bad.. Unless you have a scantool then you will need a dealership to replace the SKIM module because it will need to be programmed and then you will need to program the keys to the new SKIM module..
