Turbo Dodge HelpUrgent help when something goes wrong with your Dodge and you can't figure out what the problem is. Troubleshooting help and the place to post when you're stuck with a broken car and have to get to work the next day.
Ok,need some advice. I have a 89 Lebaron Turbo that will not start. Cranks but no fire. I have replaced the HEP thinking that was the issue but didnt work.
When I ground the controller wire in diagnostic connector the fuel pump kicks on and I have power at the + side of coil. It still will not start under these conditions. If I dont ground the controller wire I have nothing. Any ideas??
Do not crank the engine with the ASD manually actuated.
Just to be sure...
With ASD Not grounded and engine cranking there is No power at the + coil???
When you installed your new HEP did you place any sharp bends in the wiring like the factory had it?
If so you may have damaged the internal wiring.
I did this years ago and the HEP failed at the bank one week later.
Since then I actually re-enforced the wireng where it lays on and exits the distributor and the looped the wiring around to the main harness.
The wiring is wrapped in split loom and secured to the main harness.
Before condemning the controller be sure the terminal is not broken in the connector housing, the terminal is securely locked and not pushing out and the terminal is not spread causing poor contact with the controller terminal.
I am fixing this for the original owner. The car looks like it came off the show room floor. Has 30K miles. They are thinking about selling the car. What are these cars worth?? Convertible top is perfect,car has no flaws.
The connector is not broke and all terminals look fine. Just dosent make any sense. They said the car sat for about 3 months and when the tried to start it nothing. Yes the battery is fully charged also..
