Car will run briefly, then shut off. Is there a relay associated with the BCM on this model?
Do you

Hi MTBEAR,

There is not a relay specifically for the BCM. I attached the wiring diagram to show the three fuses that the BCM has. This vehicle has the BCM and Junction block connected. They can be separated but they are installed as one unit.

Are you looking to disable the theft system or trying to do something else. Most likely the start then shutting off about 1 second later (if that is what yours is doing) is most likely caused by the theft system. It will allow it to fire then it will shut it off.

If this is the case, we need to figure out why the theft system is active. I included the description of the system to try and help better understand what it is doing.

Have you tried unlocking the vehicle from multiple doors using the key including the trunk? This is a way to disarm it.

Let me know and we can go from there. Thanks

I received the vehicle as abandoned and therefore no key or fob. I had a regular (non-transponder) key made and as soon as I turn it in the ignition (after the alarm has been reset) it will immediately trigger the alarm. Therefore I guess my follow-up question is do you happen to know if this particular year and make or cars with factory alarms use(d) a transponder key to start them because I am not using one at this time. Chrysler has been no help and I'm having trouble finding an owners manual online.

Sounds like your alarm is still activated. According to one of the triggers is turning the ignition to the on position. Meaning you need to disarm the alarm and then you should be able to start the vehicle. If you have no RKE then I would get one of these and get it programmed to the vehicle. This will ensure you disarm the alarm and the key should start the car. This model year does not have a transponder key. That did not come in the Cirrus until 1999.
