No Crank, No Start Diagnosis - EricTheCarGuy
Visit me at http://www.ericthecarguy.com/ Whenever you have a no start condition when attempting to start your vehicle it's important to make the distinction between "no crank, no start" and "crank, no start" situations as they are treated differently. This video covers what I do when confronted with a 'no crank, no start' situation and in this case it's a worst case scenario so be sure to watch till the end.

Crank Sensor Quick Fix
GET SOFTWARE HERE: http://www.autodiagnosticsandpublishing.com/Software_Catalog.html Crank Sensor Quick-Fix There are two types of crank sensors, and two types of tests, the 2 and 3 wire sensors. Here are the flash points for the crank sensor testing. 1) The 2 wire crank sensor generates a voltage, and is quick tested with a test light. 2) To test the two wire sensor, disconnect the crank sensor, ignition key on, hook the test light to battery power, and tap at each crank sensor terminal repeatedly. A spark click and injector pulse should be seen. 3) The 3 wire sensor has its own circuit, with 5 to 8 volt power, ground, and signal wires. Identify the signal wire using volt meter or diagram. 4) Take the test light and connect to battery ground. With key on, disconnect crank sensor, and repeatedly tap on the signal wire. You should hear a spark click and injector noid pulse. These are to test the ECM crank sensor circuit response. On both tests, you should see a spark click and injector pulse. Crank sensor is the main input to the ECM. If ECM working, then the crank is the only other issue. There are other ways to test, but involve an oscilloscope and more complex. This concludes the cranks sensor Quick-Fix.





How to test a crank sensor with a voltmeter (All Chrysler models)
The tests shown in this video apply to camshaft, crankshaft and vehicle speed sensors on ALL Chrysler models, in all production years. The vehicle being tested is a 1997 Jeep with a 4.0L engine. Chrysler has changed very little in regards to their hall effect sensors throughout the years. Older systems used an 8-9v reference circuit (power supply), where the newer systems use 5v. And with all of them, the signal circuit is a 5v pull-down design. Engine Performance Diagnostics chapter 21 pages 20-29 Tests shown - how to check a crank sensor with a voltmeter -what does an on/off digital signal look like on a voltmeter - how to check the 5v reference and ground to the sensor - how to perform a bypass test - how to verify signal circuit integrity Tools used - digital multimeter - jumper wire - backprobing pins - incandescent test light - scan tool Related videos - 1997 Dodge Neon no start, crank sensor problems https://youtu.be/xwh3XM1Nl4k - How to test a crank sensor (Chrysler Dodge Jeep) https://youtu.be/YtpDi2vnGog - How to test a cam sensor with a voltmeter (All Chrysler models) https://youtu.be/irHVjFTq4LE - 2003 Chrysler-Dodge 3 8L No Start (faulty crank sensor) https://youtu.be/VrsI1xCoZ8M For more information on this topic, I have written a “field manual” called Engine Performance Diagnostics which is available at www.scannerdanner.com as an eBook or paper book.

1996 Ford F-150 No Start with ScannerDanner-EricTheCarGuy
1996 Ford F-150 No Start with ScannerDanner-EricTheCarGuy ScannerDanner and EricTheCarGuy are back again this time solving a no start condition on a 1994 Ford F-150. This time I wouldn't let him use his fancy expensive scanner and to be honest it was no problem for ScannerDanner because he understands the fundamentals. It's really great to work with ScannerDanner because he knows so much about these systems and how they operate, I learn something every time we work together. So please enjoy this no start diagnosis with nothing more than a spark tester, a DVOM, and a test light.
