Driving home from work my 2010dodge charger stopped running.

Customer Question

driving home from work my 2010dodge charger stopped running. The lightening bolt icon came o.k. now my vehicle won't start. It turns but don't catch. I took it to the dealer now they're telling me the camshaft is not turning and they need to do eight hours labor to tear down the engine. I really don't have the cash for that and weekday I've researched is saying it could be my ETC electric throttle control or something in that nature. Plz help.. Confused.

Thanks for the reply!!

Did they tell you what codes were setting? It would be very helpful if they give you the P codes..

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No they told me nothing of codes.
Expert:  -Brad- replied 1 year ago.

Along with the ETC lightning bolt light is the check engine light on as well? If yes then you will need to connect a scantool to get the P codes so we can see what's going on..

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No engine light was on when the car stopped running.i just left from up there avid they still know nothing.
Expert:  -Brad- replied 1 year ago.

Ok if it stopped running with no check engine light then we need to start with the basics such as does it have fuel psi and spark and if yes then what is the compression of the engine.. These test will help us in determining what is causing it not to start.. Also do you see the security red light on in the dash?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The lighting bolt?
Expert:  -Brad- replied 1 year ago.

Yes the ETC light is the lighting bolt in parenthesis.
