1997 Chrysler Town & Country van with 3.8L no crank no fuel pump

Asked by Dec 28, 2013 at 06:05 PM about the 1997 Chrysler Town & Country LX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1997 Chrysler Town & Country van with 3.8L had intermittent stall and immediate
restart. Suddenly died while driving and would not crank up. Jumper starter and it
works, Changed ignition switch and then finally towed home.
The relay for the starter has no ground(circuit 85), the relay for fuel pump has no
ground(circuit 2)when you jumper starter relay circuit 85 to ground with key in start
position then the starter cranks and there is spark but no fuel. When you ground circuit
2 of fuel pump relay with key on the fuel pump works.
The grounds for both circuits seem to go thru the pcm so I picked one up with same
numbers at online wrecking yard.
I still cannot get any change and could use some ideas or if someone has had this
problem before

Well after careful testing of all circuits in the pinouts for ecm I found no faults. After retesting twice I decided it must be ecm (again). I plugged ecm back in and noticed the lower connector did not feel like solid connection as the upper did. Inspected connector found burr and removed it. reconnected and car starts and runs fine. I do get new codes P0351,P0352,P0353 and when code occurs there is a misfire.
