i checked fuel and asd they are both fine fuel pump kicks on the distributor is not sendin spark through the wires and the timing belt aint the best but its fine before it died the temp gauge got up high put not to the over heat mark but when the car shut off it went back down to normal and it has anti freeze in it and presure idk what happened
Easy with the straight power to the battery. A sudden spike and the ECU will be fried.
A heat issue usually makes me think of the CPS...then again, I blame that for every non-start issue. lol
If you're getting low voltage to the ECU, you could have bigger issues. One thing to note is that the coolant temp sensor will keep the motor from firing up if the sensor "thinks" the motor is too hot. Since the gauge indicated a high heat issue, you may want to change that sensor. Also be sure that the fan(s) kick in when the needle gets above your gauge's normal range (all cars are not the same, even the same cars).
So, the two things I recommend are the CPS and temp sensors and remove the jumper as soon as possible. If it is a voltage issue to the ECU, the fix isn't to jump it, but to find the voltage draw. I know time is of the essence, but the time will lengthen and the headaches will get bigger if the ECU fries.
hey thanks bad venge it was the batt. we had it hooked up to another car with the trottle half way and its only gettin 9.5 volts but it almost started with the computer jumped to the jumper cables so were puttin the new batt in here in a few and she should start but my avenger is my baby but im gettin another car just in case she breaks again man its been a week im ready to drive
well take that back we think we have pin pointed the problem to the pcm we tested one wire that was sapose to be .05 ohms and it was .03 ohms so we are gonna replace the pcm and hope to god the new plugs aren't flooded
okay so we are totally done with the car as soon as dodge sends me a mitsu distributor b/c napa's distributors are **** and it takes 4 until u get a good one just to let everyone know make good friends with dodge dealer ship employees u get a distributor for 713 instead of 1020
