Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

If you suspect the engine may be flooded, try holding the accelerator pedal to the floor while cranking, this will shut off the injector and should clear a flooded condition. If after trying this and it still will not start then you are going to need to check and see if you have good spark to the spark plugs, Injector pulse and proper fuel pressure. Check these things for me and post back with the results and we can work from there.

I suspect other problems. Now the anti theft device will not let the engine crank. I open the door and lights and horn flash and sound. I put in the key (either one) and it will not crank and continues flashing and sounding for a few minutes. Should I disconnect the battery cable to reboot the PCM? Is the problem a bad ground or the wiring harness?
Chrysler Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Yes try a reboot and see if that clears the system. If after doing so and it will still not start then you are going to need start with having the computer system scanned and see if there are fault codes setting. Post back with the results and we can work from there.

I re-connected the battery opened the door and the anti theft horn and lights began and the starter will not crank?
Chrysler Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

That means the alarm is active , can you deactivate it with your remote or by unlocking the doors?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The ant-theft is still active and will not allow the starter to crank
Chrysler Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Try disconnecting the negative battery cable and then turn the ignition key on and then install the cable and see if it will start.

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
That did not work.
Chrysler Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Okay will it disarm with the remote?

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
This was purchased used and there was no remote. I now have no power to the car. Is there a main fuse that may have blown?
Chrysler Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

If you have no power how is the alarm going off. Are you sure the battery is fully charged?

Ask Your Own Chrysler Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
The alarm sounded and I disconnected the battery cable. I tried once more with the key on and reconnected and then had no power. The battery is new but does not even spark when I connect the cable.
Chrysler Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

I would start first with making sure the battery has a full charge. If so then turn the headlamps on and connect the battery and see if there is now spark when connected.

False alarm, the negative cable was loose. Same situation. The red circle s flashing in the instrument cluster and if I open the door the alarm sounds.
Chrysler Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

I suspected as much.

For some reason the system has lost its ability to red the key. If you have a spare key try using it. If that dose not work then you are going to need to have the system scanned and likely reprogrammed. If that is the case you are going to need to have your dealer do this for you.

Another question, Is the connector from the wiring harness to the ground a resistor. It is odd. There are two them one for the front three plugs and a second for the back.
Chrysler Mechanic: Ron, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

There are no resistor in any of the grounds. A ground is a ground.

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.
