Im under the hood and i take the light tester and while someone else is in the car turning the key,the car starts up but it wont start with me putting the key in the switch,it wont start
Chrysler Mechanic: Ricardo Hohl, Master Certified Tech replied 6 months ago

When the computer sees an ignition signal it will provide a ground signal to the starter relay the signal is a ground, by you using a test light you are bypassing that signal and the engine will crank over

6 cyclinder
Chrysler Mechanic: Ricardo Hohl, Master Certified Tech replied 6 months ago

Check Fuse 10 in the Integrated Power Module (IPM) under the hood for voltage in the cranking position. Power comes from the Ignition Switch.
The Powertrain Control Module (PCM) supplies a ground on pin 86 of the starter relay when the vehicle is in Park or Neutral and when the vehicle alarm is off. Check for a ground on pin 86 at the starter relay. Check the Dark Green/Orange wire at PCM on pin 38 of the C3 connector.

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

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.
