problem getting ignition fire on 1997 dodge avenger 2.5 litre

Question From slickwilly1949 on problem getting ignition fire on 1997 dodge avenger 2.5 litre

having problem getting any fire from distributer on 1997 dodge avenger. have replaced crank sensor and distributor with new cam sensor. does this vehicle have a auto shutdown relay .that would cause this problem? if so where is it located? thanks Bill

Response From Double J Top Rated Answer

not sure on avenger...but all chrysler products i'v seen have an asd relay...if it doesn't see a ref.signal in i think 1
sec??3 sec?? the asd shuts down the coil,injectors,fuel pump,alternator etc....does this have a timing belt??
check to see if it jumped time..does distr. turn...??

Response From slickwilly1949

thanks for info. yes this does have a timing belt,distributor turns, so I know belts not broke. I was hoping if this thing had the ads relay, that it might have went bad and that was keeping it from starting.rotor button and timing mark were pretty close if you know what I mean. and to get to number one plug, you have to pull upper intake manifold off. was going to try the easier things first. I've done all this stuff for years, but was just trying to save myself some work, if it didn't need to be done.I tell you, the enginering and designs on some of these cars never cease to amaze me. having to take off top part of motor, just to get to rear spark plugs! have looked from under dash to engine compartment for anything that says atd relay or fuse and no such luck. any more ideas or info appreciated. thanks Bill

Battery won't keep charge 96 Dodge Avenger

Question From jeuri1sh on Battery won't keep charge 96 Dodge Avenger

So I need some help but I'll begin with a story. My 96 Dodge avenger keeps dying and has been for a couple months now, it won't keep a charge over night or for 4 hours. I went to autozone and had my battery tested, it tested bad, I got a new battery, it was fine for the night but the3rd day with this battery my car keep dieing. I took it back and they tested the alternator, it was fine. I figured my System, subwoofers, had something to do with it so I disconnected them from the battery, 4 hours later my car was dead. What else could it be? if you can help me you would be a life saver thanx.

Response From FrankJ Top Rated Answer

check if there is a spark when you disconnect the negative terminal on the battery,always disconnect the negative first and install it last.If there is a spark,you very probably have something still on when you turn your ignition switch off,and that is draining your battery.did this problem start after you installed the music system?if yes,then hook it up somewhere where it will not draw current with ignition switch off.
good luck.

Response From jeuri1sh

It was already in the car when this started, I have had the car for 2 yrs, and never had a problem with it dyinglike this. Any other ideas?

Response From Tom Greenleaf

FrankJ's test works or a test light. If you see it spark or the light on pull fuses one at a time leave any computer controls till last and see if the test light goes out. If so that's the circuit with a drain.

FYI, four hours is fast for a new battery so this drain is fairly strong, T

Question From kcmilton on car keepsdieing

i have a 2014 dodge avenger sxt with the 2.4l i was driving an the battery light came on then all the lights and the car died it wont turnover, it will if boosted but it dies again after a few mins.... it has 25000 km it now has the engine light on and still wont stay running

Response From nickwarner Top Rated Answer

Sounds like your alternator isn't charging. This is a new car, You need to get it to a dealership to have it fixed as they handle the warranty. If you have AAA that will pay for the tow.

Question From djcw on Electrical discharging - Battery light - stays on

12.22.09

Hello fellow Road Warriors,
Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide.

Vehicle: 1999 Dodge Avenger
Engine: 4 cyl
Mileage: 168,900

Hey, I know this vehicle is 10 years old. I am working to get it through another Cleveland, Ohio winter ('09-'10) and I plan to donate it to a friend who wants it in the Spring '10.

The Problem: After the engine is started the car goes through its normal cycle with no problems (10 secs), but recently the electrical discharging- battery - light has been coming on the dash and will not go out. When the light comes on the rear window defroster stops working and the power steering does not work ( very difficult to turn)-is this related to the battery issue? After about 3-5 minutes the power steering begins to work. I read the factory manual for the car, but it only suggests taking the vehicle in to be serviced if the elecrial- dash light stays on.

My questions is/are...is/are there any basic troubleshooting techniques I can perform before calling the dealer? Do you think the electrical/battery light is related to the power steering? How do I troubleshoot the power steering issue?

Thanks for sharing your expertise.

Still rolling the Avenger in Cleveland,

Maybe have a check of the accessory drive belt and its tensioner?
If for some reason the belt is slipping; the alternator and the power steering pump may not be driven hard enough, for them too do their job?

Dan,

I think you hit the nail on the head. I will have my mechanic tighten and replace the belts.
All the best.

Dodge/ Mitsubishi stereo

Question From timhere1 on Dodge/ Mitsubishi stereo

I have a 1998 Dodge Avenger made by Mitsubishi. The stereo is made by Mitsubishi and has the model # P04704385AC. It is a cassette, CD and AM/FM stereo. The volume knob acts as a choice between time and radio station. It is a coventional rotary switch that you have to push in to engage a momentary contact switch for changing between time or radio station display. I can not find a replacement for that switch anywhere. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Response From Sidom

I'm not sure if you are looking for just the knob or the whole switch itself but either way. For the stereo you aren't going to find a place the just sells pieces for it.

If you just lost the knob the best place would be a wrecking yard. If you are having issues where you think you need the whole switch, it would be easier to replace the whole unit.....

Response From timhere1

Iam looking for the switch asm. Er, I thought this was a repair forum, not a swap forum. Sorry.

Response From Sidom

Good luck trying to find the switch......

Response From timhere1

I have attached the link for the switch I need. I just don't need 1000 pieces to fulfill the minimum. For those that rather repair vs. swap the host to the link has a search function for automotive and motorcycle switches the world over. Yeah Spanky, er Sidom, er .../veteren, you can take the fly off the wall because I am watching you now.

Response From timhere1

Here is a link for the data sheet for the same audio switch for those that rather repair than swap. It has the momentary switch option and the option for varied lengths of the shaft. I hope this helps true audio buffs.

Timmy.....This is an automotive fourm.....AUTOMOTIVE......If you have the knowledge & the skill to go in and repair either automotive or home electronics then good for you. Most people don't have those skills just like most people don't have the skills for advanced auto repair.

If you think the general population....most auto techs included...have the correct soldering and diagnosis skills to go in an repair those kind of electronics then you are truly clueless.

You know I don't know what set you off other then maybe you are just a total jackass like your post to me would suggest.....I gave you an honest answer to an automotive related problem and you come back with attitude...

Go out in the automotive world....not electronic repair world....automotive world and try to find that switch....go to the dealer....part stores....online auto parts houses .....& find that switch Timmy.....

I guess next you will be looking for surgical or legal advise here and come back and be a jerk when you can't find that.......

You know something Timmy.....Any forum...no matter what subject it covers has people who have knowledge in that area helping other people who need help and they are doing for free donating their time & experience to help other and it's jerks like you cominng in to these forums, giving them a rash a crap for no reason that burns them out and makes them say "Why am I even wasting my time here when it's not appreciated" and you wind up ruining it for a lot of people who do need the help and would appreciate it.....

But you know....I already know your answer........You don't care...... I know timmy..... you don't care if you mess it up for a lot of other people because it doesn't affect your little world.....

Timmy you are a small self-centered little person.........Who later on down the road when looking for free help will have no clue to where the free help went........when all you have to do is look in the mirror......Its jerks like you & your attitude that killed it for everyone.......

Response From timhere1

Thank you for your reply and especially for yours and all others who have served the USA. Text does not reflect tongue and cheek well. The title of the forum is Car Stereo Repair. I understand I may be eccentric, I own a '63 Studebaker Avanti with all original parts. I was new to the forum and have not followed it to know that repairs here do not go to the component level. Most switches are not hard to replace and I hope someone gets help from those links. I was just funning with you and it will not discourage me from helping anyone in anyway I can, including you, my friend.

Response From Sidom

Well you are right that tones can't be percieve online very well short of caps for yelling.
I suppose the title can be decieving but it's mainly for figuring out if you have speaker problems, wire problems, deck problems, or lock out issues. For a while there was a couple of professional stereo installers that would come into this section and those with the skills & desire would get that kind of info but for now there is just auto techs minding the store and due to labor cost these days there really isn't any components on vehicles that get rebuilt anymore it's all pretty much R&R as side from the drivetrain

Most people don't have the skills to remove & open up a deck, desolder a switch and solder in a new one, while getting the correct wires to the correct poles. No offense to any one coming here but with some it's a challenge just to get the fuses tested & basic wiring tested....

Response From timhere1

My apologies to Sidom, the moderator and the forum. Sidom is dead on. Hardly anything can be repaired anymore. It is called designed obsolescence. That is why our landfills are full. The switch for the radios for the Avengers and Mitsubishis from these years can be found on a web search for “Bourns rotary encoder switch.” A host named “Alliedelec” can be found that has multiple switches and so does “Mouser.” Local community colleges with electronics programs my have teachers that will give extra credit to students that will solder for you. It may be the only paying job they get for years to come. Sidom was also dead on about the expense of repairing anything these days. Now that I understand the forum, I hope I am welcome back. Signed, Spanky.

Piece work repair is really becoming a lost art. When I got in this business 30 some years ago pretty much everything got rebuilt. Whether it was an alternator, starter, caliper, wh cyl, etc. If it wasn't blown up then it got rebuilt. I have so many tools in my box that were designed for rebuilding that is just sitting there collecting dust now. It was probably 10 years ago when I rebuilt my last caliper and that was just because it was late at night the new caliper was defective, the car had to go and by some miracle they had a rebuild kit in stock, then while I'm rebuilding it there is 3 younger techs just standing there watching me....like it was some kind of show......geeez..it was just kitting a caliper....

Rising labor costs really factor in to this but there is also a skill level as well. While it's not brain surgery, you would have to agree that the skill to do repair work to an electronic unit or overhaul a hydraulic unit would need to be a little higher than that if you where just going to have someone r&r that unit. If those 2 factors aren't enough, then throw in the way the whole customer base for any area has move to. It seems in these times everyone is sue happy and no one wants to take responsibility for there own actions when it's easier to put it on someone else and maybe even make a little money in the process. I've seen it go from shops trying to help someone out who was strapped for cash by jury rigging a repair just to get them by with the understanding it was a gamble and if it didn't work, then we took a shot but it didn't fly. To now if you were to try that not only would you have to refund the original charge for the gamble but now you are also on the hook for fixing the way it should've of been down in the 1st place.

You see some posts here, where people say you use to be able to go into a shop and find a guy who could patch it together for you with some duct tape, coat hanger & a hersey bar until pay day but they can't find those shops any more...... Those guys are still out there & do it to their car or friends car until it can be fixed correctly but no one is crazy enough to do it to a customers car they don't know. Every tech, service writer & service manager out there knows full well what is going to happen. That $20 or $40 patch job to get the customer by until payday is going to wind up costing the shop $800 and a customer. And its not just in the auto repair industry, if you ever take a look at some of the warning they post on some of the products these days, its just ridiculous be it not to hold that cup of coffee between your legs or don't hold your gun in your mouth by the barrel while looking for a smoke it seems common sense is out the window & companies are on the hook for everything....

All these little warning & other steps to protect companies do have a cost and as we all know, those costs get passed on. So in reality, the public has a lot to do with how these companies do business and what is an acceptable risk and what just isn't worth the gamble anymore......

We may have gotten off on the wrong foot but that happens, tones & attitude can be misinterpreted online when you can't see the person. But no harm no foul all is good.....
