Having problems with your 1995 Dodge Intrepid ?

Won't Start I have a 1995 Intrepid 3.3L V6 that i recently purchased for $300. it ran fine for a day or two, then i went to leave for work the next morning and got about 5 minutes down the road, it died. started again, died again, finally made it back home, and now it won't start at all. I have changed the plugs, plug wires, ignition coil, cam sensor, crank sensor, and it's still not firing to the plugs. it is flashing codes 1277, and 5455. Can anyone tell me what those codes mean? Any help is g

Answers :

My daughters car did the exact same thing. Lights and all. I replaced the pump twice and both relays (auto shut down and fuel pump relay). Very frustrating indeed.

The 1994 recall (see below) is right on! Right behind the engine block intake (the long aluminum block on top) is a tie rod that connects from the rack and pinion to the wheel. On top of the tie rod is a bundle of wires that are wrapped in cloth style tape, just resting on the rod. As the vehicle is driven, the steering rod will rub the wires (as the wheels are turned) thus causing a possible short. My daughters was. I used liquid tape, wrapped in tape and used zip ties to lift off the rod. I have driven it alot and have not had an incident yet!
