IceCube Down! Won't start!
1995 Dodge Intrepid 3.5L. 196K
Currently won't start. Spins over fine. NO CEL at all. Key dance does not work.
A week ago, wife ran it hot. Not 'car quit running' hot but pretty high on the temp gauge.
Replaced waterpump and timing belt. Everything was fine...pulled it out of the garage, let it run for about 1/2 hour, checked for leaks. Following day replaced radiator cap and t-stat. Again pulled it out of garage to make sure everything was OK. Ran for 1/2 hour and everything fine. Autostick was installed at the same time the wp and tb was put in.
Yesterday buttoned everything up...put the front bumper back on and put in new headlights. Started it up to pull it out of the garage. Started to run rough and threw code 43. Shut it off and took off the neg battery cable. Waited 10 minutes and put it back on. Started it and ran fine...no check engine lights. Took it for a 5 minute drive, drove fine and autostick worked.
Today started it up, ran rough and check engine light came on. Drove to work (1 mile) and shut it off. Came out this afternoon, started it up. Ran for rough for 10 seconds with check engine light on and then it just shut off. Now won't start at all...and no check engine light at all to pull a code.
Question...would putting on the bumper cover maybe knocked a wire loose going to the PCM? Or did the PCM take a dump? All other lights come on normally except for the autostick shifter...it illuminates in 1 even though it is in park.
