    My 2003 Chrysler Town and Country will not start.
    I recently changed the Engine Control Module after which the car started. The engine was switched off and later on the car refused to start. The engine does not crank. The "check engine" light comes on and starts flashing after a few seconds the stays on.

      Thats odd, replace A/C compressor? A/C compressors are for making your A/C cool by compressing the refrigerant. I mean if i will buy parts that will prevent my car from overheating it will be these parts

      1. Radiator
      2. Water Pump
      3. Thermostat
      4. Radiator/Auzillary Fan

      You must use the fault code data to assist with diagnostics. Nobody just knows what is wrong. The codes tell what has happened. Attach a code reader and read the codes and repost with the codes and then we can help. Otherwise it is just guesswork.

      Read the fault codes that may be stored in the vehicle computer. That is why they are there to assist with diagnosing problems. Code readers are cheap and every DIY should have one.

      The starter is located on the bottom of the engine toward the front. Place the front wheels on car ramps. If you are lucky you might be able to get the engine started by tapping on the starter with a small hammer while a helper tries to start the engine. Often it starts. Then you can drive the car on ramps and replace the starter.

      It could be a bad ground wire or the switch is defective. A visit in a certified electrician is a help to verify this. You can use the "Find a Shop" feature of AutoMD for nearby shops.

      Replace the Blower Motor Power Module. I can't see the crash being related, the module is a solid state device up front.

      What have you done so far to resolve the problem of your vehicle? Did you already try to reset your oil light or diagnose your vehicle with a scan tool to determine if there is a stored trouble code in your vehicle? It is possible that your oil pressure gauge is defective.

      I would suspect that the cat is not the origin of the coolant leak but rather something above the cat.

    Check engine code P0171 (lean bank 1) how to repair
    • darkmind
      9/29/2010 darkmind
      The possible causes of P0171 are dirty or defective MAF (mass air flow) sensor and/or vacuum leak (downstream of your MAF sensor). Check the condition of your MAF sensor, inspect your PCV hose and all your vacuums and check your fuel filter (condition and check for proper fuel pressure).
