Question about 1995 Dodge Ram

Open Question

1995 DODGE RAM 1500 CHECK ENGINE LIGHT FLASHES FAST,CRANKS, NO START

WHEN COLD, CHECK ENGINE LIGHT FLASHES REAL FAST WHEN YOU TURN THE KEY ON. CRANKS, BUT GOES IN TO FLOOD. THE ONLY WAT TO START IT IS TO PUSH PEDAL TO THE FLOOR WHILE CRANKING. EVENTUALLY IT WILL START AND AFTER CLEARING UP FROM BEING FLOODED, RUNS PERFECT. YOU CAN DRIVE IT THEN, SHUT IT OFF, RESTARTS NO PROBLEM. LAST FALL IT DID THE SAME THING, HOOKED UP SCAN TOOL, NO CODES, BUT THEN IMMEDIATELY STARTED RIGHT UP. HAS STARTED GOOD EVER SINCE. (COUPLE MONTHS) NOW ALL OF A SUDDEN IT IS ACTING UP AGAIN? FUEL PRESSURES GOOD(NEW PUMP LAST YEAR) COMPLETE TUNEUP ALSO. HAS SPARK AND GOOD FUEL. I HAVE BEEN TOLD IT IS A BAD GROUND, BECAUSE WHEN CHECK ENGINE LIGHT IS FLASHING REALLY FAST, IT HAS SEVERAL RELAYS, AND THE EGR SOLENOID ALL CLICKING IN UNISON WITH THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT. ANY HELP WITH THIS WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED, TRYING TO GET THIS GOING FOR MY SON WHO GETS HIS LICENCE NEXT WEEK. THANK YOU.

SOURCE: chrysler 3.3 vin r v6 mini van, starts then dies

Charlie. You have replaced the ECM on your van?.
Kedwin,, Your problem is, the computer on that 3.3 L.
Need to be programed with the VIN nember of your car.
The Antitheft System will disable the injectors due a incorrect VIN, Bucause the body computer is not recieve the correct pasword between 5 seconds after start up.
YOU have 2 options. 1 get a ALOHA Smith. some of they have the computer required to program ECMs.

The other option is: Get a new ECM from the dealer, They will program if ask for that.

NOTE:::::: Other way is . Put the body control module with the computer from the same car.

OK... I hope this work for yours.
If NOT letme know I can look for more information.
Thank you.

SOURCE: 1995 Dodge Ram 1500 2WD 5.9L fuel pump or???

Code 12 doesn't correlate, but Code 1282 may provide some insight. Code 1282 is "The fuel pump relay circuit seems to be having a problem", which would explain the disconnect/reconnect trick that sporadically works. Have the relay circuit looked at.

Thanks for trying. I have a Haynes Repair Manual. There is no code 1282 it is a 12. The truck had sat for about a month. I put it on the battery charger, I'll be darned the POS started. Not wanting to take the risk, I didn't drive it. The next day it wouldn't start and still won't. The money factor is a real big deal.

could be that the electronic throttle could be icing up. just remove the air cleaner and have someone cycle the key. the throttlebody will cycle prior to starting to do a self check. chrysler has a tsb out for this concern. tsb # 14-002-05

SOURCE: 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 kept stalling while driving now won't start

First off you can test the fuel pump 2 ways
1.have a assistant turn on the ign to on while you listen for the pump to run at the gas cap (gas cap off).
2.find the valve on the fuel rail looks like a a/c or valve stem,take the cap off and press the needle and if fuel comes out then it's not the fuel pump.

But from a lot of EXPERIANCE on dodge engines the stalling and restarting issue is ignition related i.e crank or cam sensor which will throw a diagnostic code of engine misfire xxx cylinders.

So If its one of those sensors then you will not have any spark,and staring fluids will not fire the engine.
As for the headlights flickering they get there power through a relay straight from the battery,so I would look at the relays under the hood and find the one for the headlights and swap it out with the horn relay as most of the relays will have the same numbers.

The crank sensor is about 70.00 and the cam sensor is about 50.
depending on where you get them (dealer or aftermarket)
the cam sensor is the round plastic thing under the dist cap,and the crank sensor is on the pass side under the head into the top of the transmission bell housing and it's a 2hr job to change because of it's location is really hard to get to.
Hint -take the breather off and place a rag over the intake and a board from the radiator core support to the intake to lay on,it has 2 10mm bolts and the wiring harness unplugs from underneath.
