View Full Version : Nothing when turn key cycle key then starts

08-06-2013, 06:33 PM
I have an 06 2500, intermittently when I go to start i have dash lights but starter will not engage. I have to turn the key to off then it will start. At first it would do this or fire then die. The check engine came on once for about 4 key cycles now it is off. At first I thought it was a cam or crank sensor now I am not sure. Any ideas would be appreciated. Also I have 140k miles on Van.

Before you said, "the check engine light came on for about 4 key cycles now it's off" I would have suggested that you try what I did which worked for me.
That is, remove the battery cable from the negative terminal and leave it off for 5 minutes or more. This will reset the computer in the Sprinter. However, I did not have any check engine lights, nor did my Sprinter "fire then die." Sounds like you may have another issue.
