Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!There are many things that can prevent an engine from cranking. There may be a starter , cable or connection issue, the powertrain control module may not be awake, it could be an immobilizer or vehicle communications issue, or the key itself may have failed.Did the problem happen after a repair, attempted jump start, etc?How was the battery's condition verified?What is the year, make and model?

13 fiat 500 abarth. Throwing a p0703 code, and the evic says hill assist and ESC unavailable. As a weird twist, the blower fan stopped working unless the a/c is on. I find it odd that it won't crank... But never saw the fault until I was driving to work and it just flipped on. No bumps no water... Thought if I recycled the ignition it would clear. Nope. No crank.
Dodge Mechanic: sprinkles08, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep master tech replied 1 year ago
P0703-00 is for the performance of the brake switch. If you have push button start and the brake switch isn't working then it won't crank as it has to see the brake pressed before the starter can engage.Do you have pushbutton start?
Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Nope. Key start.
Dodge Mechanic: sprinkles08, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep master tech replied 1 year ago
Do you have an automatic or manual trans?

Manual

Do you hear the fuel pump run when the key is turned on?Have you tried a second key?Do you have an actual scan tool to be able to read data?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
All three yes.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
The code reader is pretty low level but it did show me the 0703 code and allowed me to clear it. I did a reboot on the ECU after clearing the code and got the same result. No crank. Àcts like I'm not pushing in the clutch.
Dodge Mechanic: sprinkles08, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep master tech replied 1 year ago
It's a code reader rather than a scan tool then, correct? You can't look at the clutch position switch, ignition switch position, security data, etc?

I'll have to swing back by the car today and look but I don't think so. Could get a better scan tool. Worth checking if brakes lights are working I assume?
Dodge Mechanic: sprinkles08, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep master tech replied 1 year ago
You can check the brake lights but if you don't have pushbutton start then that shouldn't be related to the no start issue.Check fuses while you're there if you haven't already.

I checked all of em with a volt meter and all checked good. Swapped the start relay, T20 I think, with another like relay. Nada. I should be there in an hour if I can find someone open with a better scanner.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I'm looking at what scanners Advance has... I hate to ask this, but would the actron cell scan get us into the right spots? An app has to be better than the tool I have now. Acton as well, but pretty cheap. Was wrestling problems with my daughter's Jeep and it did OK but that as mostly crank sensors etc
Dodge Mechanic: sprinkles08, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep master tech replied 1 year ago
Is it Actron U-Scan? That looks to be just a code reader rather than a scan tool that can monitor data. The ability to monitor data is what you're looking for.
Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I'll go to the car and see what I can see with what I have. I know there is some data available. Be there in 30.
Dodge Mechanic: sprinkles08, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep master tech replied 1 year ago
Great!If you have a voltmeter it would be a good idea to take it along.

At the car and connected. Have an actron cp9575. P0703 still there.
Dodge Mechanic: sprinkles08, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep master tech replied 1 year ago
Are you able to see the state of the clutch switch and ignition switch?
Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Don't think so. Several pieces of data but I don't see an abbreviation that looks like either of those.
Dodge Mechanic: sprinkles08, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep master tech replied 1 year ago
What data are you able to see?
Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
New wrinkle. I found a bad fuse. It starts. Still the ESC and hill assist unavailable tho. Stupid meter lied to me yesterday.
Dodge Mechanic: sprinkles08, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep master tech replied 1 year ago
Have you cleared codes now to see if the P0703 returns after replacing the fuse? The brake switch issue is most likely what is causing these other lights.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Disregard previous. Cleared the code, hit the brakes and everything cleared. I'm an idiot. Thanks so much for the help!!!
