FYI Before I did any parts replacement I hot wired positive side of battery to starter relay to see if both the starter and the relay were working. The starter will engage and turn the engine over but it won’t start I’m guessing because there is no spark. Like I said when I turn the key to the start position there is nothing. No crank, no click, nothing but all the panel lights turn on as do the headlights wipers horn ect. I have power but SOMETHING is stopping the power from getting to the starter and plugs. Note on the crankshaft sensor I installed. I did not receive any kind of spacer or paper with the new sensor and it was not an original mopar part. From what I have read I should have had a “spacer“ and that most aftermarket knockoff parts will fail after a short time. Is this true? The sensor I replaced has same numbers molded into the body on it as the one I took out. Perhaps this has been replaced before. Also didn’t know if I needed to tork sensor to certain footpounds. After the Crankshaft sensor didn't work I installed a rebuilt PCM. After I installed the new PCM I tried to start the van. But it did the exact same thing as before. Lights come on but no crank, no click nothing and if I tried to get it to read codes (even tho I knew none would be there I figured it would at least show “done“) it wouldn’t do anything. So I’m back at square one. New original Chrysler crank sensor with a spacer? Or what?
have the same problem?
