Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are many things that can cause a no start condition and it will require some testing to determine what is going on. It sounds as if you've been able to start it now and the problem is intermittent which may make it harder to diagnose.

The first step in diagnosing the problem is to use a scan tool or code reader to see if any fault codes have set. Have you checked for codes?

I have. No codes

Has any other testing been done?

Is it running correctly now?

Starts and runs fine now.
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

You can try removing the rear seat and fuel pump access panel and check the fuel pump connector for heat damage, but other than that it's going to require some testing while the problem is happening. Fuel pressure can be checked or at least see if the pump is running, if fuel pressure is present then monitoring engine data on a scan tool will be required.

Ok thanks. The lighting bolt like comes on when the car does not start. The one in the dash

The only time you'd need to worry about the electronic throttle control light is if it stayed on or flashed while the engine is running, in which case fault codes would be set.

It did. Twice. I changed the throttle body last week. Last night when I came out from the store the car wouldn't start and the electronic throttle control light came on. There also was red light came on. Look like a red dot. If I was driving it after living the store I'm sure it would have done the same thing it did twice already
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

If the ETC light comes on while the engine running it's because fault codes have set.

What codes. I didn't see anything on my scanner when I read it. No codes. What do you suggest I do?
Chrysler Mechanic: sprinkles08, ASE Certified Technician replied 11 months ago

If the ETC light came on with the engine running it was because fault codes were set. If you're using a generic OBDII code reader you may not find them.

If you're unable to do the required testing yourself then you'll want to see a shop or dealer. Otherwise you can continue with what I've already outlined.

Ok. But when I turned the key to run it sounded like the fuel pump was coming on. But I will check the wiring

Ok.

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.
