My 1996 Chrysler LHS will not start or even attempt to rollover, already changed electrical module in steering column and changed starter/solenoid. Still will not attempt to rollover, there are no dtc codes stored in the computer and wiring seems to be in good working condition-still getting dash lights and trac cont lights flicker when key is turned, does anyone have any ideas about what to do next?
Do you

Hi lek752, Welcome to 2carpros and TY for the donation.

If its cranking over and will not start do below and get back with some results so we can continue to assist.

Get a helper disconnect a sparkplug wire or 2 and ground it to the engine atleast 3/16 away from ground-have helper crank engine over-do you have a snapping blue spark? If so-you have a fuel related problem, check the fuel pressure to rule out the fuel filter/fuel pump/pressure regulator and listen to the injector/s are they pulsing or hook up a noid light. No snapping blue spark continue to troubleshoot the ignition system-power input to the coil/coil packs, coil's resistances, distributor pick-up coil, ignition control module, cam and crank sensors and computer Note: If it doesn't apply disregard it

The car is not turning over at all, I have now tried the ignition module in the steering column, starter/solenoid, starter relay, checked for voltage at the alerternator and checked for voltage at every other wire coming off of the battery, is there a sensor somewhere in the starting circuit that I am missing?

I have the haynes manual but cannot find the actual position sensor, the manual says that it is on the powertrain control module but the people at haynes say that its on the tranny, but I cannot locate a single part on the transmission that is like the part I got (neutral safety switch is what kragen has the name as), can you shed any light on this for me? Thanks.

I've had the same issue and run all the tests, all on 4 different starters. My opinion is the starter spec'd is too small for the engine. If I pull the starter and spin the motor a little, it will work again, but for a shorter amount of time than the last time. I can do this several times before it wears out. All my starters came from Napa, so it could be their starter is too lightweight.

Sounds like you need to inspect the flexplate for damages/bent
