Hello, welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is***** a Certified Auto Technician with 27+ years experience. I will do my best to assist you. please keep in mind that I may need to ask questions of you before I can answer. When you reply please feel free to add as much detailed information as possible pertaining to your concern.
My recommendation at this point is to scan for the "Diagnostic Trouble Codes" (DTC's) from the onboard computers. The DTC's are used as the Starting Point for diagnosis. They let you know which system(s) the fault is in. This information is of great value for correct diagnosis. As a Technician, my first course of action is normally to scan for the DTC's. If you can obtain these codes, we can more accurately and efficiently diagnose the problem. You can borrow a code reader for FREE at your local auto part store (AutoZone, O'Reileys, Advanced, etc.). If you post these Diagnostic Trouble Codes here, I can obtain the most accurate information to help you diagnose the Concern, and then point you towards the correct repair.
Keep me posted and let me know if you have additional questions...
Thank you,
Robert

Yesterday it had codes come up for cam position sensor, I changed it out. I just found that I didn't have sensor completely pushed down. After I reinstalled position sensor it would not crank anymore just click click click , thinking I had drained battery from trying to start to many times I swapped battery's and it started up.i took battery in turns out it had a bad cell just had battery checked out a week ago and it tested fine, hoping that sensor and battery was problem would that sensor create a no spark condition? Anyhow I hope this is a fix and not some other issue....
Chrysler Mechanic: Robert R, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago
Cool, I'm glad you got it going....
To answer your question, yes, the Cam Sensor WILL cause a No Spark Condition. The battery can cause this also when you have a dead cell. Many times the battery can have enough amperage to crank the engine but the PCM shuts down to low voltage and this will also cause No SPark...
Keep me posted and let me know if you have additional questions...
Thank you,
Robert

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.
