Is the shift indicator displaying the correct gear position? Is there a "red dot" illuminated on the cluster when trying to start it?

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Actually I'm not seeing the shift indicator or a red dot.
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I just have the shift in the park position.
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
It has been scanned for codes 0714, 2706, and P0750
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Correction that's P0714, P270,and P0750
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Sorry P2706
Chrysler Mechanic: Robert R, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
If the indicator is not displaying the gear position, that is the likely reason for not cranking....[;)Are these codes retrieved after replacement of the Solenoid Pack or before? In the mean time, I'll research the codes for you... Keep me posted... Thank you, Robert

Before , I'm trying to figure if the wire harness to the solenoid did not connect properly or if the gear was not in the right position when I installed the solenoid pack.
Chrysler Mechanic: Robert R, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
If you are able to obtain all gear positions, most likely it is installed properly but chances are high that the connection did not connect properly...Are these new codes after replacement of the Solenoid Pack?

No, it's from the 1st diagnostic . It has not been scanned since.
Chrysler Mechanic: Robert R, ASE Certified Technician replied 3 years ago
At this time, I HIGHLY recommend a scan again if you can't get it started after checking the connections to the solenoid pack. Also check all fuses and that the Transmisison Relay is functioning.
The codes you posted could all relate to a faulty solenoid pack but they could also point to faulty wiring..
At this time, after verifying the connections, make sure to check the transmission harness all the way up to the PCM. You may have an area that has been rubbed through or melted due to heat from the exhaust...
Check all these carefully and let me know what you find....
Let me know if you need additional info or diagnostic procedures...
Keep me posted...
Thank you,
Robert

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.
