What info do you need?
Dodge Mechanic: Ricardo Hohl, Master Certified Tech replied 8 years ago
ok, if the scanner does not communicate with the engine controller it can be the controller on the vehicle having problems, can you turn the key to on but do not start and see if the engine light will go on for 2 seconds and then go off.

I can not get my scanner to communicate with the vehicle. so I can't look for trans
problems. No 3rd and 4th gear. Compter is a rebuilt and I have one comming to
replace the first rebuilt. Bob
Dodge Mechanic: Ricardo Hohl, Master Certified Tech replied 8 years ago
ok, can you check if the engine light goes on and off, this will confirm the presence of a pcm computer in the network.

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.
