If you disconnect the camshaft sensor on the side of the head and it does have a green/orange wire then swap the camshaft and cool connector and it should start.Let me know.

both camshafts do you change connector
Chrysler Mechanic: Brad, Dealership Technician replied 1 year ago
What do you mean, both camshafts? If you disconnect the camshaft sensor on the right side of the head and you have a green/orange wire then you need to disconnect the cool and swap connectors. Plug the camshaft connector to the coil and plug the coil connector to the camshaft. The coil has to have the green/orange wire as it's the ASD 12v feed.

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.
