Hello,

He can use any good ground location on the transmission or engine block or cylinder head. He will need a 14mm or 15mm socket or wrench.

Please let us know what happens.

Cheers, Ken

We need the codes I have seen cars not start till a certain code is cleared from memory. Doesn't mean you have a bad computer. Need exact code numbers not code descriptions?

Use a test light or meter to see if the starter is receiving power at the big lug. Also see if it getting power at the small lug when the key is turned. Make sure the power and ground cables are tightened securely at the battery. Also make sure the ground cable is securely attached to either the frame or the engine block.

No, like I said, when you erase the codes it will set there and run fine then the check engine light will come on and then it shuts off

OK some of those codes for the camshaft mentioned something about the timing belt being out of time. That's why I asked abut it.

I looked around the computer box on the car and found that a big ground wire was off and in the wiring harness there was a blue wire that was smashed and broke, I fixed the ground wire, didn't start, that's when I noticed the blue wire, I haven't fixed it yet it got dark on me, so that's where I'm at so far, do you have anything?

It just makes one click, but if you take the relay out it turns over but will not start. If you jump the relay but when you put the relay in just one click.

Try a security system reset and try cleaning battery terminal ends they may be dirty and cause security to engage. See link.

Chrysler Pacifica 2004, Heat/Cool Fan not running. When I turn on the Climate Control system I hear a very soft hum instead of the usual loud fan. Everything looks normal except that no air comes out. All lights are there as if nothing is wrong. Also no air comes out from the back seat vents. Sometime in the past I had this happen but I simply turned off the system and then turned it back on and things went back to normal. Any hints?

I'd have to get at the fan and check for voltage and ground, key on, hvac on. Green wire is voltage and black is ground. If you have good voltage and ground with no blower movement, suspect the blower motor. You can check hvac trouble codes, see if anything shows up?
