in the last month, my 2005 Dodge Ram 4.7L, 2WD basically stalled out while driving. It happened to me, then to my son. Worried about it, but thought it was a transient issue. On Monday, I went out to go to work, jumped in the truck, and it cranked but wouldn't start. First thing I thought.....fuel pump. I've replaced two previously and so I put a fuel pressure gauge on the passenger side fuel rail. No pressure while connecting the gauge, and no pressure once I began cranking the engine. Again, engine cranked fine, but zero fuel pressure. Fuel pump fuse is good, fuel pump relay seems OK. Replaced fuel pump.....now I have good fuel pressure, but it still won't crank. I also got three new fault codes I've never seen before: P0888, P0688, P0522. I've also gotten intermittent P0700, P2706 & P0507. So, new fuel pump, cranks but won't start. No previous problems starting. Two stallouts on record. I haven't checked spark, I don't know how. If you can tell me how, I will. This vehicle has 252,500 miles. With intermittent codes, and now it won't start, am I seeing a failing PCM/
ECM?

Hello, so it does crank over but just wont start? If you spray carb cleaner into the intake will it run? You got these codes after replacing the fuel pump, they werent there before?

Hi Gene, so, it cranks fine, just won't start. I did get fuel pressure....55-60 psi. I've not sprayed carb cleaner into the intake. I got most of the codes after I replaced the fuel pump. I've seen the 0700, 2706 and 0507 codes before, but not the 0888, 0688, or 0522.

Ok the 888 and 688 codes are indicating a lack of power, so you may have blown a fuse.. Ill attach the pinpoint tests for these codes for you to run through and see if there is a common fault between them.

What Customers are Saying:

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.
