Default 1998 Dodge Dakota Help Won't Fire Or Start

I have a 98 Dodge Dakota 3.9 V-6 Engine. No matter what I try it will not fire. I already repaired the splice people talked about, replaced the Crank Sensor and Cam Shaft Sensor.

So what else can I do???

Thanks for your help in advance.

P.S. Also forgot to say, that the Auto Shutdown Relay is not kicking on. I ran a hot wire to it and the fuel pump kicked on. I then turned it over and still no spark.

Are you sure you hot wired the ASD relay and not the Fuel pump relay. Do them both then try to start.

I will move this 2nd Generation Dakota Sub-Forum.
