car started this am, ran for bout 10 mins and turned it off, waited 1 hr and now car will not start again.

 

when key is inserted and turned to the on i can hear the usual humming noise which i believe is normal than tried to start car, and got nothing no turn over or crank,

 

 

Chrysler Mechanic: Ricardo Hohl, Master Certified Tech replied 8 years ago
ok, the humming you here is normal, the possible problem here may be the starter or the starter relay, lest test the starter draw by turning the lights on then turn the key to crank and see if the lights will dim as you hold the key to crank position you may need another person to look at the head lights as you are inside the truck.

ok, lights do not dim, starter is new

 

was able to disconnect battery, than reconnect battery, hit the alarm switch to off

sometimes car will start, but once turned off, after running few mins, try to restart the car again, and nothing happens again, lights bright inside dash lights ok, horn ok, just when ya turn the key no crank/turn over to start

Chrysler Mechanic: Ricardo Hohl, Master Certified Tech replied 8 years ago
ok, if the lights do not dim as you crank the engine then the problem is no power is going to the starter if the lights dim then it means there is load on the starter, so this lives us with a possible safety neutral switch, or the starter relay and for this we need a test light do you have one?

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
