Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are several things that can cause a no start condition and it's going to require some testing to determine what is going on. You may be missing spark, fuel, it could be a broken timing belt, fuel quality, and it's definitely possible there could be internal engine damage.

Have you tested spark and fuel pressure?

ran starting fluid and no spark at all, hand checked spark plug yet. Interior lights don't work when door opens, and the electric lock only works 1 way either only locking it or only unlocking can't remember off hand which one.

iod fuse was burnt, now have fire, hoping some more fuel will get us there, it's been low
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

The IOD fuse powers the dome lamp, radio and power locks and isn't related to your no start condition.

it tried to fire once with starting fluid, the gas has been real low. my uncle (has mechanical experience) was out trying and said he heard it try to fire 2 times before I went back out. he thinks that maybe putting 4 Gallons of fresh gas it might start.

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.
