Having problems with your 1993 Dodge Shadow ?

I spent most of the day tracking down an ignition failure. I thought I had it narrowed down to the igniy ion switch. I replaced it and it still does the same thing. When you turn the key to the on position, you get nothing. No dash lights or anything. When you hit the start position the same thing. There is power coming into it via the pink wire. When i jumper the pink to the blue, the wire that feeds the dash and the coil, I can then start the car with the ignition, but when the jumper is pulle

I need a wiring diagram for a 1983 Dodge power ram 150 4x4. Can anyone help? Motor would crank and run only when the starter is engaged as soon as the key is switched back to the run position from start it looses power and cuts off. Some butcher has been under the dash and hood cutting and splicing, so I figure the best thing is to trace the wires and from one end to the other and fix the butcher's damage. Can anyone help or tell me where I can get a free diagram to solve this problem ? Thank yo

I was driving my 87 Dodge w150 225cid slant six when it stopped running (as if the key was turned off). Will not start. No spark from coil wire, no voltage positive post of coil when cranking.

Wiring Problems? I have been having on going problems with my blazer. Took it to the garage and was told that the security fired the wiring to the fuse box and the neutrual position sensor. They fixed that problem, my truck ran great for a couple of weeks and then quit again. Now I've been having problems with it starting again. I have to start the truck with a live wire to actually get it started. I was told that the wiring harness in the steering column could be bad. Took apart the dash and th

I have a 96 Nissan Altima that is not charging. The charge warning light on the dash is not coming on. Had the alternator checked and it is good. The fuses have been checked and are all good. I am not getting any power on the Yellow and white wire at the alternator. When I put a jumper wire with 12 volts to this wire the alternator starts charging. I cannot find any broken wires.

I have a 69 chevelle SS. I just replaced the original wiring in the dash with a new wiring harness for factory gauges. I can't get the tach, oil pressure, alt or blinkers to work. The wiring harness in the engine compartment was replaced a couple of years ago and I went with the harness for factory gauges and tach. When I plug the pink wire into the distributer, the car won't start. Once I unplug, the car will start. Has anyone had this problem? What was the problem?

I was hit by another driver on my passenger side from the tail corner up to the gas. It appears to simply be body damage and driveable until I can get it repaired except for one thing. The battery light comes on my dash and the truck won't start. After I replaced the "meter" fuse, it starts but the fuse again blows and my dash meters fall to zero. What wires or parts back there could be causing this? The gas gauge? Can I possibly disconnect something so that I can stop blowing fuses and read my

The brake booster motor would not run, I think because the emergency brake cable is broken. I was going to try and get power to the the booster motor to see if I could test it. With the engine running I took a jumper wire and ran it from an extra light green wire that was hot to the red wire on the booster motor. That did nothing, but when I took my test light to the black wire on the booster motor the engine quit and won't start now. Everything on the dash lights up and the engine turn over bu

My 4.0 starts only starts after turning the key to the on and off position svereal times. I can tell it will start because I hear what sounds like a low voltage short and then the injectors spray. I learned of this noise after several attempts at different things like, wiggling the wire harness under the hood on the drivers side (that used to work) Then I wiggled the fuel relay in the fuse box, when that worked I figured I found the problem and replaced it. It turns out that didn't work either
