Hello and welcome!
My name isCustomerand I can assist you with your question.
Start by checking for a 5 volt reference to the TPS and MAP sensor with the key on. If there is no reference voltage to these sensors with the key on, then we need to check all inputs to the PCM with the key on. This includes all powers from all fuses, ignition switch and even fusible links (if equipped).

Chrysler Mechanic: Amedee, Chrysler Technician replied 3 years ago
So what about the reference voltage?

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
there is none
Chrysler Mechanic: Amedee, Chrysler Technician replied 3 years ago
Ok, then the computer is not awake. This is why the vehicle will not start.
Your next step would be to check all powers and grounds going into the PCM with the key on. If all checks out good, then the PCM is bad and will need to be replaced.

What Customers are Saying:

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.
