Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My son has a 2007 Dodge Charger. We've just replaced
the water pump and have replaced relay switch. The car
ran fine for e week and then he was going to work and it
just died. Now when you try to start it, it cranks but won't
start. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Also we have
put in new spark plugs and you can here the fuel pump

Check for blown engine fuse in fuse box under the hood.

David Steelman

No blown fuses either. The buttons to open the trunk unlock and lock the car have been out for sometime as well. Not sure if that had something to do with it.


Is the check engine light on ?


What relay switch did you replace ?

David Steelman

Camshaft relay and the ignition relay switch


What about the check engine light is it on ?


Even though they are new I would recheck those relays I have seen new parts right out of the box bad or not last that long.

Ok thanks

Update: gear on the water pump I just replaced came off broke the guide on the passengers side and now waiting on the replacement guide.
