1999 Dodge Stratus 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic
my Stratus has a pack os 2 ignition coil, which is fed through three wires. Wire #1 is for the coil #1 signal (ground), wire #2 is the ASD relay output (always have voltage with the car on), and wire #3 is for the coil #2 signal (ground).
The problem is, wire #1 is constantly grounded, therefore keeping the coil always energized, which end's up melting.
I have tested everything, and problem is at the PCM. Also, checked for continuity at PCM pins "coil #1 signal" and "ground", and there's always around 25ohms resistance between them.
I don't know how it's inside the PCM, but could this be a short, a defective chip?
Do you know the exact location inside the pcm to look? Any tips on how to fix?
have the same problem?
