1991 Chrysler New Yorker 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic? Miles

car ran next morning would not
miliage is not available as it has a different odometer in it.
I was told it was due to an Auto shut off ( the car as far as I knew never had an alarm hooked up) I was told that this sometime can be reset by the key. I also read that The ASD has to be replaced. I am not sure if that is the same as the brain or the PCU they are telling me a new brain will fix this Please list options and also is there something I did to activate this as so I will not do this again car has been usless for 3 months now please help

Hello -

To better assist you please tell me if your model is a New Yorker 5th Avenue or New Yorker Salon. Also your engine size in liter.

First try checking for codes as below.
Check Engine Light Diagnostic Mode
1. Start engine (if possible). Move transmission shift lever through all positions, ending in Park. Turn A/C switch on, then off (if equipped).
2. Turn engine off. Without starting engine again, turn ignition on, off, on, off and on. Record 2-digit fault codes as displayed by flashing CHECK ENGINE light.
3. For example, Code 23 is displayed as flash, flash, 4-second pause, flash, flash, flash. After a slightly longer pause, other codes stored are displayed in numerical order.
4. When CHECK ENGINE light begins to flash fault codes, it cannot be stopped. If you lose count, it will be necessary to start over. Code 55 indicates end of fault code display.
5. Refer to FAULT CODES to translate trouble code number to a system fault description (DRB-II display). Once trouble area is identified, refer to NO START TEST 1A (NS-1A) or DRIVEABILITY TEST 1B (DR-1B) trouble shooting chart to diagnose problem. Use trouble shooting chart titles to find appropriate chart.
6. As an example, a 3.0L engine starts and runs, but has a driveability problem. CHECK ENGINE light indicates a Code 14. Refer to FAULT CODES to translate trouble code number to a system fault description (DRB-II display).
7. When system fault description (DRB-II display) is obtained, refer to DR-1B: DRB-II FAULT MESSAGES since vehicle has a driveability problem. Select fault message and corresponding test from table and proceed to appropriate chart.

Next to better understand you, when you turn the key does the engine crank or turn over or nothing happens?

THe title just says New Yorker and it is a 3.3 4 door sedan if that helps the car will crank start for about two sec then stall. If you pump gas pedal if started for about 10 secs then stalls.

Hello -

Thanks for the info.

Did you try checking the codes per my instructions?

We need to figure out if it is electrical or fuel related. Pull a plug wire off of the spark plug and insert something into the end of it and have someone try to start the car and have the metal object really close to a piece of metal on the engine and see if you are getting a good strong popping blue spark. Don't have your hands on any part of the metal! If there is no spark, then it is electrical.

If you are getting good spark then spray some starting fluid in the throttle body and try to start it and see if it tries to start then.
