Hey guys,

I can't beleive this van of mine. I just finished changing the fuelpump, and I was going down to gas station, to fill up, drove about half a block, and the van died. All kinds of crank, it's getting fuel, I replaced the coil, with a known good one, can hear the relays clicking, cleaned and tightened the battery connections, and still no start. I'm really getting pissed off now. Looking like I will be going to VAN FEST in my 2000 Caravan.

I'm thinking maybe a possible Hall Effect sensor in the distributor. Hey take the '89!

Thanks Nate, that is one of a few things I have to check on tomorrow. Also going to check ASD relay, confirm there is good voltage going to the coil, check a few grounds, and then I don't know.

The '89 isn't on the road yet. Hell, I don't even have the ownership yet. I have been thinking of swapping vin. tags between the 2 as they are twins, but I doubt that.

Hey Nate, do you know if I have a Ballist Resistor?? and if so, do you know where I can find it?? I have looked all over the firewall, inside and out, and can't see anything like that, on either van.

Once Chrysler installed an ECM to control engine functions, away went the good old ignition module and ballast resistor setup.

ON THE ROAD AGAIN.....I fixed it. Thank god I didn't take it to a mechanic. I replaced the cap, rotor, and hall effect pick-up, as Nate had suggested. And she fired right up, nice and smooth throttle, no hesitation in the lower RPM range.

Now I have to try and go gas up again. Its a little nerve racking after consecutive breakdowns, but hopefully I've licked it this time, and she will be good to go for sometime, at least this VANNIN' season...
