1994 Jeep, Cherokee?

check all EFI system fuse first with a meter.

that is ASD drop out.
all jeeps from 93 to now have ASD relays.

43 code (nice checking you did) is bad spark.
when the PCM sees bad spark it then shuts every thing down

http://www.fixkick.com/Jeeps/ASD.html

cause is bad ignitor or coil.
the big v8, with the funny locking throttle body... short.
that is true if you crank for 5 full seconds.
to see if CMP sensor fails too.
cmp cam sensor is in the distributor base.
the ignitor is in the PCM, and drives the coil directly.
i presume spark is dead directly at the coil terminal
and is dead the first 2 seconds cranking. right.
takes 2 person to test spark. one at key , 1 and coil
the PCM only allows 2 seconds for spark to happen
if it fails ,it kills the ASD relay.
making trouble shooting tad hard , for those that dont know jeep ASD issues.
if the 5.2L cmp and CKP sensors work right, the PCM then creates spark
it does this via and ignitor.
the coil can be bad, as can the rotor and cap. id replace any old cap and rotor, fast. if the coil tower terminal HV. has good spark.

read failure to start test here
http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service
chapter 8D-6

and page 8w-30-4 , coil schematic.
as you can see, the coil has 12vdc key on for 2 seconds.
cranking.
the PCM ground the minus coil pin.
this charges and fires the coil
the ignitor transistor is in the PCM on this car.
The PCM monitors this pin minus , and if it fails to pulse,
it knows the Coil is dead. and then shuts down EVERYTHING EFI wise.

that is how it works.
tricky yes,but true.

91 3.1 car starts and runs fora minute then dies code 43 came up( fixed wire kn Sen.) now 21and 43 came up?


You didn't say what the make and model are, but if code 43 is a knock sensor issue I guess its a GM product.
Code 21 means the TPS voltage was too high, and code 43 means the knock sensor voltage was too high or too low.
Neither code would kill the engine. Just turn the warning light on.
If the throttle position sensor failed, you would get the effect of stalling on acceleration.
You may need to narrow down the possible causes to spark or fuel, and in the end it could be the engine computer. It could also be a relay or other electrical component.

Autoshutdown keeps turning on


which engine???????????????????????????
ASD is tricky on jeeps.
The Auto shutdown,relay.
what is it , how does it works is covered in the fsm. read it.
http://www.jeep4x4center.com/knowledge-base/index.htm?utm_source=cj#service
The ECU runs this RELAY, and if the ECU sees a gross error
it shuts this down, and the schematic there is clear as to what.
both spark and fueling.
here is what can drop it out.
1: crank sensor.
2: cam sensors or TDC ,etc.
3: sees spark dead or weak.
4: Immobilizer active. (failed)

as the book says , make sure spark is good for the 2 seconds cranking. (not after the 2seconds)
the ECU is programmed like this.
user cranks.
ECU creates spark,, using the crank/cam sensors at the time base
for 2 seconds
if the spark read back fails or the 2 sensors fail, the ecu shuts DOWN.
this is for fire prevention.
most other cars just cut the injectors, but not jeep
the drop the MAIN ASD relay.

using the check engine light flash codes, you can see which of the
3 failed, cranking for 5 second and releasing the key on all cars.
1996 and newer a scan tool is use to same effects.

now the 64,000 dollar qustion,
see page 8w-30-4
why does the ASD KILL THE IGNITION coil. easy.
1: it only guess it 2 seconds to make spark
2: if it cant,. it then drops the relay. killing fuel too.
3: this prevents the the crash and burn you see on TV.

so its 2 second permissive system. (or 3?) i forget exact seconds, its in then book and is short.
many dont know this. but is a fact.


now the flash codes.
crank for 5 seconds while in flash code mode
see emmisions page for how.

flash code 11 drops the ASD ! (cam or crank sensor dead)
code 54 cam signal dead?
code 43, spark bad.

My 2007 jeeop compass wont start and I see on the dash no u5


wont crank?
or cranks robustly but will not start????????

head lights work perfect, key off? if not fix that first. easier x 1000.

key on all cluster warn lamps come on as the oper. guide states?
yes/no?
sure it can be a fuse, any time any thing electrical fails , check fuses.
all cars, and all machines.
next is to attach the scan tool (above things ok)
and see the scan DTC error codes.
after cranking for 5 seconds
see CMP , CKP or spark failures or scanned RPM at 0?
all EFI cars cut fuel for dead spark.
by law and fire safety.

no u5?
what does that mean?
if the display shows odd codes, they are all in the operators guide.
you lost that?
http://www.jeep.com/en/owners/manuals/
get it. free.

my guess is
u5 means
UConnect hands-free communication system displays
- If Equipped

91 toyota v6 is not firing


ok , (killed?)
there are 6 spark plugs, it will take all 6 firing to run
are all 6 sparking, called a spark test.
BTW1, the ECU will not inject fuel if it even suspects spark is bad.
it has 3 monitors for spark, if one dies, fuel is cut and in many case
the fuel pump too, all cars. (fire safety)
so SPARK is first.
  1. check spark? if spark is dead.
  2. then Insert the diagnostic jumper clip (paper clip )
  3. in to the check terminal.
  4. and then crank for 5 seconds.
  5. Got DTC errors (flash codes) for CMP, or CKP dead? or spark dread codes. ? BINGO?
  6. The ECU will tell you most times if spark is bad. and why.
ever do a 60,000 mile tune up in the last decade?
if not , maybe now is that magic moment?
fuel can burn weak or no spark.
the 60k also nets you a new fuel filter .
check spark directly at the the coil too....not just the 6 spark wires.
if the coil sparks and not the 6 that means the cam belt slipped.
(hard to believe a chain can but see 2 like that, owner was deaf)

if you have spark, then test fuel works
spary it in now.
verrrommmmmmmm stall.
?
that means the fuel pressure is low.
if you get this far,the rest is easy, ask.

98 nissan pathfinder 3.0 wont start new distribitor no fire


What do you mean "the battery still no fire"?

Do you mean that there is no spark at the spark plug?
Have you pulled out a plug, grounded it and cranked the engine to check to see what colour (if any) the spark is?
If there is no spark at the plug, then either change the plugs if they look to be in very poor condition, or change the coil.

Dodge obd code p0305


The DTC (Data Trouble Code) P0305 is the generic OBD-II DTC for "Cylinder 5 Mis-fire Detected", and it means that the OBD-II control unit has detected a problem with the #5 cylinder.

The problem could be a faulty spark plug, or a spark plug wire for the #5 cylinder, or the coil for that cylinder could be faulty (2.7 liter), or the distributor or distributor cap could be faulty (3.0 liter), or the fuel injector for the #5 cylinder could be faulty.

Before you look for any electrical problems causing the mis-fire on the #5 cylinder, first do a compression check to be certain that the mis-fire is not caused by a mechanical problem.

Here are the firing order diagrams for the 2.7 and the 3.0 liter enginesto help assist you.

What does the code 43 mean on a 1996 jeep grand cherokee and how do u fix it?


Trouble code P0043 means: HO2S Heater Control Circuit Low (Bank 1, Sensor 3)Hex code 43 is for a misfire.

DTC 43 indicates a cylinder misfire, but does not specify which cylinder is misfiring. To pinpoint which cylinder is misfiring, you need a scan tool and get the "P" code, as you can see in the chart below. So it is quite possible you're barking up the wrong tree.
0d4a53b.gif

If you go to an Autozone they will scan the codes for you, if the CEL is currently on, and tell you the DTCs they find. That will get you closer to the problem.
I'm fairly confident that if you do a complete tune-up, spark plugs, spark plug wires, distributor cap and rotor, that the misfire codes will be taken care of. Be sure you read this, Dodge Ram 1500 Running Rough before replacing the spark plug wires, or if you have already replaced them.

Hope this help (remember comment and rated this)..

Code #12,43,43,43,72,55


code #43 is for a cylinder misfire, since there are 3 codes, this would mean there are misfires on 3 of the cylinders.
code #12 means the battery has been disconnected within the last 50 key cycles (nothing to worry about unless you didnt disconnect the battery)
code #55 is just a code to let you know it has reached the end of the list
code #72 means the catalytic converter efficiency is low.

knowing the P-code would help alot more.

there are a few ways you can start to diagnose this problem, change the spark plugs, wires, and coil pack. if it isnt this, then you can go more dramatic and change the catalytic converter because it might be clogged and therfor causing the misfire
