Dodge Mechanic: Lou P., ASE Certified Technician replied 20 days ago

Dodge Mechanic: Lou P., ASE Certified Technician replied 20 days ago

there is a lightning bolt symbol lit up on the cluster
Dodge Mechanic: Lou P., ASE Certified Technician replied 20 days ago

are you using a key or is this a push button starter switch

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Dodge Mechanic: Lou P., ASE Certified Technician replied 20 days ago

the lighting bolt is for the throttle body

it should be on as long as the key is on if memory serves me

Dodge Mechanic: Lou P., ASE Certified Technician replied 20 days ago

have you tried to pull codes by cycling the ignition on and off 3 times fast?

cant remember if this model will do this but almost all others do.

from off to on 3 times fast and ending with the ignition on there should be codes that start with P that will come on in the dash where the mileage is at

Customer reply replied 20 days ago
last time vehicle ran was sunday night. it sat all of Monday and would not start Tuesday morning. yes it rained during this time. going to cycle the key now. be right back
Dodge Mechanic: Lou P., ASE Certified Technician replied 20 days ago

ok

its possible that water entered somewhere and is causing issues as well.

Customer reply replied 20 days ago
there is power on #19 there no p codes when I cycle the key 3 times fast. it only has dashes and says done
Dodge Mechanic: Lou P., ASE Certified Technician replied 20 days ago

ok, what about fuse m21 when cranking or key on

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 20 days ago
power on #21 too
Dodge Mechanic: Lou P., ASE Certified Technician replied 20 days ago

ok that is the coil power, that means that the engine module is not allowing the coils to be activated

the coils all have power but are ground actiavated by the engine module

based on crank and cam sensor input same as the fuel injectors

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Dodge Mechanic: Lou P., ASE Certified Technician replied 20 days ago

with the key on, check all the fuses for power ,

let me know which numbers do not have power.

ill see if it leads somewhere, but i think we will need a scanner to check for codes. even though the dash does not show codes, hmm interesting.

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 20 days ago
just to be clear, there is ground on #21 when the key is off or on. the only time i get voltage is when im cranking the engine
Dodge Mechanic: Lou P., ASE Certified Technician replied 20 days ago

ok thanks, ***** ***** is good.

that means that the asd relay is working. allowing the coils to be powered.

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 20 days ago
the only code I got from my scanner is p0522. but I think this is from cranking the engine over and over without it starting. is that correct?
Customer reply replied 20 days ago
I probed the coil wire and didn't get 12 volts when cranking. there is ground but no power. ??
Dodge Mechanic: Lou P., ASE Certified Technician replied 20 days ago

all brown wires with grey stripe should have power

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 20 days ago
correction there is power when cranking on the gray and brown wire. however there is nothing on the blue and green
Customer reply replied 20 days ago
blue w/ green stripe*
Dodge Mechanic: Lou P., ASE Certified Technician replied 20 days ago

it should be ground when the module pulses the coil

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 20 days ago
on the blue W/ green stripe?
Dodge Mechanic: Lou P., ASE Certified Technician replied 20 days ago

the other wire is different for each coil but if you are checking coil 1 then yes

Ask Your Own Dodge Question
Customer reply replied 20 days ago
im checking cylinder #3 thats the only coil i can gain access to. the intake covers everything else. its a 4.0 motor
Customer reply replied 20 days ago
the brown with gray stripe has ground until I crank the motor then it switches to power. the blue w/ green stripe has nothing regardless of key position or cranking
Customer reply replied 20 days ago
this is on #3 coil wires only
Dodge Mechanic: Lou P., ASE Certified Technician replied 20 days ago

alright let me opt out, maybe my info is not correct, i am looking at the right motor and right year.
